Okay, so let me clarify... my rant of yesterday, was brought on by a chain of events - all involving frustration with tech. It was an emotional outcry, of sorts. One day, it was the TV; I couldn't get a picture, couldn't watch the noon news; for whatever reason, my... Continue reading

My friend Heather Clark (on Facebook) made a good tech point when she said she had an old printer that she tried to hook up to a new computer, and the tech was so old, the prompt just said "exit". My computer, as of this coming December, will be 10... Continue reading

Because my blog "A Retro Artist in a Digital Age", is acting funky (that is, the dashboard and compose features on that particular site, are not connecting with Facebook - why? - no clue), I am writing about some sad news I just learned. On one of my blog favs:... Continue reading

I told a friend that I would be glad when April 26th came; so the collective 'we' could get through this 'voting season'. He said; "It's only the primaries, you still have the general in November!" I said; "...yes, you're right, but it is the next step with getting on... Continue reading

Once again, it has been a few months since I stopped to say "Hello" on this blog, to you all. Forgive me please, once again. This past year has been one event or 'thing' after another - some quite pleasant; some, not so much. But I'm not here to bitch.... Continue reading

Yeah, here I am again; seems my writing has frittered down to once a month again... sorry about that. I don't want you to think I've abandoned you, I've been caught up in learning processes. Did you ever have those times when you are taking on something new; I'm not... Continue reading

A fresh look... new scenery... that's all. Just cleanin' things up a bit, kind of like a new coat of paint. That's All, Folks! Continue reading

... just sayin'; "Hello". I recently got caught up in one of those Facebook challenges; 'post three pieces of art in five days'; with my SoNet track record - I barely did it. Actually it took me six days, as I was crushed with work and couldn't make the post,... Continue reading

... or, can I actually get a plant to flower indoors, in the winter. If you remember, last year, actually, the year before - 2013; I had some tulip bulbs, that were given to me the previous Easter as blooms, that suddenly decided to grow around that Halloween. Well, they... Continue reading

Today, being the first day back to work, after the New Year; I'm doing some 'virtual house cleaning', in a manner of speaking. I'm logging on to blogs, social media and my web site, to change, firstly, the date to 2015, and to dust off each web presence. I've been... Continue reading

... but, better late than never. So it's December 26th? So what? Happy Holidays! Don't even tell me that it's 'over' - you know it's not! You're eatin' those leftovers right now. You'll dip into the Nog, one more time - at least. The New Year is right around the... Continue reading

The oft idolized... as well as sometimes villianized for being the face of a corporation; Mickey Mouse was 86 years old yesterday. Say what you will about Disney, or how you feel about thier cartoons; the Mouse has done okay for himself. I still have my musical Mickey Mouse watch,... Continue reading

I am at the age when the things that are familiar to me; the people, places and events - that have always been with me - are now in flux and change. Those same people, places and events have been in change; but the movement was slow, for so many... Continue reading

H. R. Giger, the man who designed The Alein of the movie Aliens, passed away yesterday at the age of 74. His Alien design scared the bejeezus out of me the first time I saw that movie - which was enhanced by seeing it at the old Warner Theater, with... Continue reading

... May the 4th be with you! There I said it... I had to - no really I did! With the exception of some of the art from magazines in my morgue file; my one and only piece of Star Wars paraphenalia. Of course it's Yoda. I most likely had... Continue reading

For months now, in my upstairs studio, I have been hearing this sound. Not all the time, just now and then. The sound is kind of like someone using an old rasp on a piece of wood, or like a really dull hand saw on a really old hunk of... Continue reading

Note: I posted this a couple of days ago... it never showed up on Facebook... let's try this again Defrosted yet? Me neither. I can barely contain myself, when it comes to thoughts of Spring. Working and living in the same building sounds like a good thing? - right? In... Continue reading

So, this is it, the last day of 2013. In reflection, for me at least, it was one very bumpy ride. I'll be glad to get off of this bus. No matter how, shall we say, 'uneven' the ride is, there are always smooth parts of the road, that make... Continue reading

Happy Holidays to All of you! I do hope that your Christmas was a great one. I apologize for not sending out my "hand made" e-cards this year; there were a couple of family-related and work issues that required my/our attention - it's a wonder that Frank and I had... Continue reading

Thanksgiving is over, and I'm sure many of you that still have the energy, after 24 hours of shopping, are 'out on the town', on a Saturday night. I, myself did no Pre or Post Black Friday shopping, as I had to do some work. Yeah, I know, the 'rush... Continue reading

Every now and then, something a little weird happens that could have many explanations. Global Warming... a perfect set of circumstances... or just a little plant confusion, due to unusual weather. Now, this, is most strange piece of plant confusion, that I think I've seen in a long time. Last... Continue reading

The Cookie Consumerist Conspiracy Theory… sure they are sweet, spicy, and they smile, but what do they really want? The other day, when I picked up the mail the Postal person had dropped thru my mail slot (we're talkin' "snail mail", for those of you who have forgotten or see... Continue reading
