Back when I was a Cub Scout and Webelo attending summer camp, we would regularly get together and sing those dreaded campfire songs. They were horrible. Cheesy. Dare I say campy (pun fully intended). Thankfully, I've forgotten most of them.... Continue reading

I find it funny that I had nothing for a Snippet Wednesday yesterday until, of course, I wrote a regular, single-topic post. Then the ideas came flowing. Go fig, eh? To make up for it, and to not lose out... Continue reading

This is not a post about Game of Thrones. You're thinking "Arya," with a -y- in the mix. Project Ara is a Google endeavor that was recently announced in which consumers can configure a smartphone with all kinds of different... Continue reading

Last week's Macro Monday was clearly tough. No guesses at all. Yeah, it was a toughie. I'm sorry about that. It was my first ever Dungeons & Dragons metal figurine. No, I didn't expect you to know it was my... Continue reading

Reading Marty's blog post today about the sixth anniversary of his blog (congrats, BTW!) got me thinking about my own "blogiversary" (as we are wont to call it in the blogging community). What should be my blogiversary here on kapgar?... Continue reading

I love receiving spam email. Weird, right? It's mostly because, as a proofreader, the painful spelling and grammar mistakes are a source of enduring entertainment for me. Also, as a web dude, I enjoy checking out these scammers attempts at... Continue reading

First off, congrats to the University of Connecticut Huskies on winning the NCAA men's basketball championship. Sure, I would've preferred it be my Kentucky Wildcats but it was not meant to be. I can handle UConn as champs. At least... Continue reading

Desolation, Desperation, Angst. Intermingling, twisting, wrapping together like crooked conniving fingers engulfing my soul. Crushing, Strangling, Suffocating. I suppose if it gets any worse I can always eat him. Continue reading

I did not win the shoes. Boooooo. I've cross posted before but mostly because my blog allows me the space to elaborate where most social media does not (or I prefer it not. I hate long posts on Facebook).

April is here. Now if only we could get some consistent spring weather to go with it. While we wait (seemingly forever) let's take a look at last month's progress toward my 2014 Goals. 1. The Reading Goal: Read George... Continue reading

Yeah, so last week's Macro Monday photo was a bit obvious to, well, anyone. Remember this shot? It was a rear view (heh heh, he said "rear view") of Thomas the Tank Engine... Hopefully this one will be a little... Continue reading
