The holy grail of solar energy has been found?

rattling around

Thursday, July 31st, 2008

House shure feels empty. Meadow came to say goodbye yesterday.  The moving truck came and went and it’s been powerfully quiet, so I am assuming that’s the last I’ll see of that little dog.  I kept a bunch of dried meat snackies around for her and she hoovered them back with every sign of joy.  […]

Is it Live, Memory, Hallucination or something entirely different?

It ain’t what you think you remember that hurts you, it’s what you remember that just isn’t fracking true.

All the women who read this blog

Throw back your heads and laugh.  Or hang your head and cry – the choice is yours.   I am having the single worst day at work in about 5 years.

Lovely critique of Thurber

This is a wonderful commentary on Thurber’s 13 Clocks, which has been reissued.

Cryptic email and status report

Wednesday, July 30th, 2008

Yesterday at work I got this massively cryptic email from the senior finance person who says check into your share situation.  Normally I have stuff neatly filed but I can’t find anything more recent than 2003.  I don’t think the phone number is even the same from back then for Computershare. Now I have to […]

It’s all I think about, but so far things are gently improving.

Yup, I was right

Man I hate that.

This cat really enjoys boxing, apparently.

Amazing post about the U*U church shooting

Monday, July 28th, 2008

Read the whole thing.  If you want to understand what contemporary liberal religion looks like, this is a damned good place to start.  Thanks to Rev Katie for forwarding it….

Okay, first you see one little moose come out and play.  Then mOm shows up.  And then, when you think it can’t possibly get any cuter….. more moose!

Shooting at church

Sunday, July 27th, 2008

There’s been a church shooting at a UU church in Knoxville TN. One man is confirmed dead, two others were treated and released and six other adults are clinging to life as I write this.  The shooter opened fire with a 12 gauge in the sanctuary.  He doesn’t appear to be a member of the […]

Sunday roundup of stuff

Sunday, July 27th, 2008

Man pepper sprays dogs. He should be pepper spraying the gd owners. And, not to put too fine a point on it, but Lighthouse Park is an offleash zone and Jeff and I saw and smelled MUCH doggydo. Shoot, any teenager can do this when you ask for the chores to get done. Frog can […]

Hike and Katie

Saturday, July 26th, 2008

Jeff and I hiked around Lighthouse Park this morning, and then we came home ate salmon sandwiches and I assembled a stew with purple potatoes and beef and onions. Then Katie came over and we watched Perfume and ate stew and she just left. She’s living with Dax again. That’s pretty much my day. I […]
