What if Michael Jackson were from India?

Thursday, October 19th, 2006

I know you’ve probably pondered that question many times. Wonder no more.
Hat tip: Dave Barry.

I’m still here …

… just not very motivated at the moment.  DC life has taken some getting used to.  Plus I feel like I’ve lost my “blog identity,” now that I’m not professorin’ or homeschooling.
Be patient.

We are now Apple people

Saturday, August 19th, 2006

I promised SWMBO that I would get her a computer for downstairs. I thought it might be interesting to try a Mac this time around, so we now have one of these (the black one), which we bought here.
Just got it turned on, but so far it seems pretty fun. This post is […]

“This product copiously leaks out of my nose whenever I read these reviews.”

Thursday, August 10th, 2006

You must go and read the Amazon.com Reviews for Tuscan Whole Milk.  You will not be disappointed.  Funny stuff!
Caveat 1: I’m sure more reviews will be added.  They may not be as funny.
Caveat 2: Some of the reviews are not appropriate for younger eyes.
Caveat 3: At the time of this posting, there were 622 reviews.  […]

Misused abbrevations/acronyms

Tuesday, August 8th, 2006

Is there a word for when people misuse an acronym or abbreviation by appending to it the full word represented by the last letter? For example: PIN number or ATM machine. There are more localized examples: when I worked at Kennedy Space Center’s Bicentennial Exposition (known as “Third Century America”) immediately after high […]

OK, so it’s not so grand of an opening

Monday, August 7th, 2006

… but I am back. It’s been a hectic month — two 26′ UHauls full of stuff, packing and unpacking, a 30 year High School reunion in Florida, and a series of snafus at my new job that prevented me getting access to a computer for almost two weeks. Throw in some record […]

Transition and blogging

Tuesday, June 27th, 2006

As you can tell, blogging has been exceedingly light. We are in the midst of making our transition to our new home and have been stressed out trying to (1) get the house ready for the new owners, and (2) arrange for the move of our stuff to the DC area.
Somehow, I thought I’d […]

Thanks to Joanne Jacobs for pointing me to the advertising slogan generator. I plugged in Ticklish Ears and came up with several I like:

We’re Serious About Ticklish Ears.
It’s the Bright One, it’s the Right One, that’s Ticklish Ears.
Tough on Dirt, Gentle on Ticklish Ears.
We Don’t Make Ticklish Ears. We Make Ticklish Ears Better.
Ticklish Ears, […]

Father’s Day 2006

Sunday, June 18th, 2006

Happy Father’s Day to all you dads.  I wonder if your day started as early as mine.  My daughter came to wake us up at 6:30 to open presents.  We held off until about 7:30.
From my daughter, I received a Mindy Abair CD (very nice jazz saxophone and vocals) and this book.  My wife gave […]

A 3.1 in Western North Carolina.  We felt it at the house.  Nothing came off the walls, but the rumble was pretty loud.  Here’s the USGS page on our earthquake.
