Find Particular Stuff
… him who writes this stuff.
Writing forces me to examine my views as cold words on a page.
My views are borne out of my experiences on this world.
My experiences are slowly adding to the short story that is my life.
While I still can, I choose to share some for anyone who might find them useful, or perhaps just entertaining.

I assume I’m not in a unique position, but it feels like it. On any given day, either directly or indirectly, I get one or both of two kinds of inputs regarding serious topics; an anecdote about something bad, stupid, … Continue reading
That’s two interesting phrases I’ve heard a lot lately. Now, people use the term “a lot” to indicate anything from twice to fifty-seven and even beyond. In my case, it means I watched a crapload (a little-used technical term) of … Continue reading
Just a few things and a few thoughts I want to share. First, THIS link about happiness and mental-well-being. The site is the Happiness Lab and it currently features short episodes on coping with coronavirus Social Distancing and isolation. You … Continue reading
Part I A few years ago, I wrote THIS post and I resolved to be more careful. Well, obviously I wasn’t because I got another wake-up call. I got called out for being a nuisance. Understand, I’m not making excuses … Continue reading
So, as the pandemic continues, I cross paths with more things that annoy me . . . no, that’s too mild. It’s things that piss me off. Look, I spend a fair amount of time gently — and sometimes not-so-gently … Continue reading
Following the previous post, my search stream has been inundated with more mask-related stuff (that’s how search engines work). I cover a few of the sources below as well as links about making home-made masks (you know, for people too … Continue reading
It’s been a few months now that I’ve been repeating the standard line of not wearing masks unless caring for someone sick or if you are sick yourself. However, I’m one of them idiot guys who listen to what people … Continue reading
This is a short post with some links and it’s prompted by the unprecedented run on guns and ammo. Disclaimer: Nothing I say here is meant as definitive advice on the subject of guns, gun handling, gun shooting, etc. Do … Continue reading
Yes, COVID-19 is a serious matter. People are suffering on multiple levels and some are even dying. But, it’s human nature to often laugh in the face of adversity. Some won’t see the humor because they are going through a … Continue reading
I’ve been doing something I rarely do. I’ve been sending out group emails. “About what?” you ask. What else? . . . COVID-19. I wrote some stuff about the virus in Part One, but that was a while ago and … Continue reading
If you have a copy of the Hitchhiker Guide (the actual guide, not the novel) you would be reassured by the words “Don’t Panic” in bold letters on its cover. These days, that’s difficult to do. From moral, to political, … Continue reading
Another post covering the first four of the ten years I’ve maintained this blog . . . . . . but this post is doomed from the get-go since in this day and age people have zero interest in other … Continue reading
I’m always of two minds about the holidays. I view them in a secular context since religious, I’m not. For me, it’s about the voluntary focusing on people other than ourselves and the opportunity to remember and celebrate those who … Continue reading
It might be evident to some that I’ve consciously retreated from commenting on current affairs. Well, mostly. I’ll throw the odd jab here and there, but I don’t address specific topics, not even when those topics dominate the news and/or … Continue reading
