I was talking with my daughters the other day, they were reminiscing about stuff from their school days. Somehow we got onto the topic of all those signatures the schools want from parents for so many, many things. I hated it. I couldn't keep up with it. The kids would come home with stacks of papers. Some needing to be signed, some just notifications of this or that. Some teachers wanted a parent...

We have a tradition in our family. On thanksgiving we gather together (as many of us as can) and sit around the table eating. While we eat we each take turns telling what we are thankful for. We get a lot of the usual stuff, some sentimental, some verging on crazy, some funny. But I thought I'd let you know what some of mine are.

I'm thankful for my family and my friends. I'm thankful for my home....

Excerpt from “Universal Guide to Galactic Etiquette, with Practical Hints for Every Social Occasion” by Sensei Eureka Starlight.

Good posture is extremely important. More important than most gentle-folk realize. One should always try to appear healthy and vigorous. Correct posture is a crucial part of this. When your posture is correct for your species you are able to present yourself in a confiden...

Okay, so since when did education have an expiration date? I know people are weird, but this is too weird. I've got two kids still in college. They're taking it slowly, because they don't want to take out a bunch of student loans. So they're working their way through a couple classes each semester. They can work and go to school, and end up with fewer student loans. Now they've been told that thei...

The worst thing about cities is the pigeons. Normal birds fly off when you approach, or at least walk away. City pigeons will mug you for crumbs. And they are dumb as rocks.

I had one pestering me at the bus stop. It was looking for crumbs. I was just waiting for the bus. It picked up every crumb it found, and checked out one rock four times. You know, in case it changed into crumb from a rock in t...

Just one of those days. Well, the other evening could have gone better. The day hadn’t been too bad. When I woke up I still wasn’t independently wealthy and had to go to work, but that’s just normal. However when I tried to get stuff done in the evening, that’s when I ran into trouble. First I tried to walk the dog. As we were walking along, minding our own business (at least I was, the dog was sn...

I hate election season. I hate the inane commercials. I hate candidates claiming that that the world will end if we don’t elect them, and oh, by the way, their opponent is Satan incarnate. I hate the fear mongering, and the ridiculous hyperbole. But mostly I hate the fact that it seems like there often isn’t any real choice.


The candidates claim there’s a choice (between them, Angel Von Sainthood...

I saw an election ad today, not that unusual this time of year. I won’t bore you with the details, just confess that I talk back to the TV. All the time. Of course I talk back to election ads.


This ad had the remarkably prophetic statement that utility bills would increase. Well, duh. Now they were saying that utility bills would increase if the voters didn’t vote the way the sponsors of the ad w...

America is big, very very big. It’s something you notice every time you travel. Or at least I do. This country is HUGE! Its varied, and contradictory, and frustrating, and enormous, and beautiful, and wonderful.


I was thinking about the federal government, and the state governments, and the local governments, and all the powers reserved for “the people.” How amazing is it that the founders of our...

The more they try to make the software guess what I want to do, the more annoying the software is. Why can't they just make software that just does what I tell it. Stop trying to guess as what I want to do. Stop trying to track my location. Stop trying to figure out what to advertise to me.

They really stink at figuring me out. 99.9999% of the time the software tries to do something I don't want to...
