After all this time, I hadn’t figured out what I really wanted to do with my planting. Then I saw this…

Maybe the idea was in the back of my mind, but I've wasted a good portion of the day (which I could not afford to do) opening and closing web pages on getting more tree and plant ideas (which I can't afford to buy right now, anyway). I suppose going out and placing landscaping barrier … Continue reading After all this time, I hadn’t figured out what I really wanted to do with my planting. Then I saw this…

Don’t underestimate the usefulness of writing prompts… but maybe, don’t go overboard, either.

I'm trying to get my writing groove back and stimulate my thinking and imagination. I'm sure that's necessary to get to writing full time and enjoying the hell out of it. But when my own ideas are seemingly blocked, or I'm stuck with trying to figure out which idea I should resurrect first... it's a … Continue reading Don’t underestimate the usefulness of writing prompts… but maybe, don’t go overboard, either.

Worn out after 2 days of intense outside work. House looks a little less like an abandoned property at last…

Two days of intense work outside. My dogs were out with me a good chunk of the time and now they're snoring away on their chairs. I'm an inch away from doing the same. I finally got my knee in good enough shape (not feeling like it wanted to twist and stab on me) that … Continue reading Worn out after 2 days of intense outside work. House looks a little less like an abandoned property at last…

The Longevity Strategy: How to live to 100 using the brain-body connection, by David Mahoney & Richard Restak, M.D.

My Copy: 9780471327943 (image from bn.com) This is a health book I'm glad I picked up to read over and think about, largely because with really short chapters and the number of topics covered, there's something to learn for anyone. The Longevity Strategy may seem miraculous, but honestly, it's a lot of research and science … Continue reading The Longevity Strategy: How to live to 100 using the brain-body connection, by David Mahoney & Richard Restak, M.D.

I’m gonna have to get a bigger “I should be writing” mug after this week to keep me on track…

I remember always hearing about the three-day hump when trying something new. I have a feeling it's gonna be next Wednesday by the time I can remotely succeed. I blame the weather. The freaking fantastic weather that came out to play most of this week (today was a hot exception because the wind was gone). … Continue reading I’m gonna have to get a bigger “I should be writing” mug after this week to keep me on track…

A worthwhile (& educational) rant: Rick Beato’s response to an insulting opinion article regarding Paul Simon selling his song catalog.

Sorry that sounds confusing. But some musicians like John Mayer are a little pissed off about this article and have spread it wide in their social media. And the guy I like to watch most (other than Beau) on YouTube is Rick Beato, because I'm trying to get back into music theory and practice big … Continue reading A worthwhile (& educational) rant: Rick Beato’s response to an insulting opinion article regarding Paul Simon selling his song catalog.

If you have family that donated to Trump online in the past few months, tell ’em to double check their accounts…

There's low, and then there's a limbo bar so close to the ground an ant can't get under it. This is THAT low. Now, I can't stand the Dump. Not a surprise. And I'm sure there's a ton of folks that are scoffing and going "whelp, you get conned by a con-man and you were … Continue reading If you have family that donated to Trump online in the past few months, tell ’em to double check their accounts…

More Capitol officers injured, 1 dead. WTF is wrong with people in this country?

It's still too new and we don't know enough yet, but it seems clear to me folks are either high on meth and other psychosis-inducing crap, or high on hate. I'm leaning toward both, considering the past year and change (and the past four before it). I just saw this a bit ago and was … Continue reading More Capitol officers injured, 1 dead.
