WordPress (Do you need a job?)

This blog is published using Blogger (a Google company) but hosted on my own website so I can make sure things operate the way I want and not the way they want. This includes being able to fix individual files and graphics when they go wonky and such. In March, just 60 days away, Blogger […]

Firefox 3.7 and Googlebar 0.9.15.14

I upgraded to Firefox v3.6 today and so far am pleased, except Googlebar stopped working. Googlebar is way, way, way better than the Official Googlebar put out by Google. Googlebar 0.9.15.14 stopped working way back with Firefox v3.1 but someone took it upon himself to patched it to work since the development team quit working […]

Silly and Serious

We’ll start with silly. Dan Haun’s ongoing efforts to be the number one contributor to my blog continues with his submission of “Charting The Beatles” As you may recollect I had mentioned before the flowchart of Hey Jude, well this is way beyond that. Rather enjoyable (once I used a utility for the visually impaired […]

A busy blog post today: Politics, Promotions, Gay Marriage

COMPANY VIDEO First, I’ve posted a short video of Interstate. It’s not a commercial but a promotional video. The real difference is a commercial is trying to sell you something. We’re just telling you a bit about us. This was shot by a private contractor working for BellSouth/AT&T to attach to our Internet ads for […]

Blu-Ray Phasers and Classic Advertising

Today is laundry day. And it’s also a football weekend. The Cowboys lost and that is an awesome thing because I hate them but on the other hand it was to Minnesota, who I used to like. Until they got Brett “Whiny Bitch” Farve, who I can’t stand. The Jets and Colts both won and […]

Post 800 – Rapture!

This is, as far as my count shows, really post 800. I did a count and sync and I do believe this is the real deal. 800 posts and over 250,000 visitors. I think that makes my blog popular, though why continues to be a big mystery. Today’s first entry (all edited to preserve privacy) […]

Conan O’Bacon’s Avatar Is Wearing an Umbrella Hat

Conan O’Brien tells NBC to pound sand. He didn’t, of course. He was far more polite and diplomatic but he emphatically stated he no longer wanted to be the host of The Tonight Show on NBC if it appeared at 12:05 AM. Good for him. I think everyone’s on his side except NBC and possibly […]

US Supreme Court and Sports (Post 1 of 2)

This is a sports related post. If you’re not into sports, this entry will be of no interest to you. I will make a separate entry with my non-sports topic. As most of you American readers know, a huge battle is about to be waged in the US Supreme Court. It’s a very small item. […]

Avatar: The Hype vs The Reality

So I saw Avatar today with Karen, Liz, Timmy, David, Kathy, and William. Post is pretty much spoiler free. This movie has been overhyped so I was not expecting so much from it. I knew it would be visually amazing, but with a slim story. I thought it would never live up to the hype. […]

All Our Allah Are Belong to Us

A quick update on the toe: it’s still attached to my body, and it still hurts. Thanks for asking.  In unrelated news, my throat hurts. Two days ago I made this Stouffer’s Easy Express Skillets Yankee Pot Roast. This is, by far, the most disgusting, repulsive, nasty, frozen entrée I have ever eaten in my life. […]
