  • Good Housekeeping

    Today’s New York Times had an interesting article about bacteria and food-borne illness, suggesting that we should all be far more terrified of our own kitchens than of any mad cow. Expecting to find a scathing condemnation of my entire way of life, I was pleasantly surprised to find an endorsement of my own housekeeping […]

  • Rate the Candidates

    Here’s an interesting survey that a friend sent me. Based on your responses to questions about issues, it rates how the presidential candidates meet your preferences. The results could be surprising. It was no surprise to me that, based on my responses, Kucinich was on top with 100% and Bush was on the bottom with […]

  • Tasty Turnips

    I guess it’s a good thing I didn’t listen to the weather forecast last night. The morning paper predicted conditions that were marginal for hunting, considering the frozen state of the ground. I hadn’t been on a horse since New Year’s Day, and I didn’t want to pass up what might be the best chance […]

  • Move Along – There’s nothing to see here

    Sometimes I feel the need to proclaim that to some visitors to this site, based on the searches that bring them here. This is definitely not what they’re looking for. I know I’ve mentioned this before, probably too many times, but just couldn’t resist talking about it again after a scan of my access log […]

    Considering all the other symptoms that our society is becoming increasingly moronic, I’m not sure why I’m still amazed at all the hype and attention given to Linux. I guess I still expect a few segments of society to have a little more intelligence. Sure, Linux is better than Windows, but that’s like saying Wesley […]

  • Murphy’s Law

    Everybody knows Murphy’s Law: “If anything can go wrong, it will”. Right? Well, maybe not exactly. Who was Murphy, anyway? Did he really exist? Did he really say that? According to an article I stumbled onto, he really did exist (there’s even a picture of him), but exactly what he said, and what the law […]

  • Happy New Year!

    Unfortunately, I don’t have any immediate words of wisdom to start off the new year. I’m not going to make resolutions that I won’t keep (like resolving to update this site more often). I thought I had at least gotten the New Year off to a good start by finally getting an opportunity to hunt, […]
