A Halloween Warm-Up Sacrifice






September has been a brutally busy month with birthdays, work activities, and obligations that have eaten up time and spit out exhaustion.  In order to pep myself up, I concocted a little tribute to the Halloween forces.


By the good fortune that happened upon me, I would say that my little tribute worked.

South Florida is Not the Paradise You Think



As fall and winter approach, people up north gather wood, fill tanks with gas for heating, and dread the snow and ice that make twenty-minute commutes bulge into two-hour excursions.  Worst of all, some of them harbor an illusion that down south awaits a paradise free of such inconveniences.  But they’re wrong.

English, Do You Speak It?


If I buy something in the United Sates, the instructions damn well better be in English. I have nothing against printing instructions in other languages as well so long as I, an American citizen, can find the instructions I need in a language I speak for something purchased in my own country. This should be a simple concept.

On Monday I got a nice new monitor for my computer. It works well, and the screen size is fantastic. However, getting it set up to my liking was more annoying than it needed to be. What happened is stupid, and I have to call it out. Prepare for a rant.

Halloween Comes to My Fish Tank

Being a Halloween aficionado, I do my best to nuance the holiday where ever I can.  This year, not even my fish tank escapes the accoutrements of the 31st of October.
