Mrs. Metal Dad is a positive thinking sort of gal. She always looks for the good in any situation. It must be true that opposites attract because I am one, mean, ornery, and cranky son of a bitch. I typically don't worry about offending folks since it's not a good... Continue reading

on Saturday I go out to play. The Twins decided to hit the gym and take in a movie. So I am taking advantage of the solitude to crank some tunes whilst I make lunch. Listening to The Allman Brothers Band's The Fillmore Concerts. describes it as: "Combines Live... Continue reading

It's been quite interesting to hear the chatter that's popping up out in the ether. One thing which was surprising to me was how quickly the Democratic machine threw Governor Northam under the big, virtue signalling bus. Personally, I don't think he committed the unpardonable sin by having that picture... Continue reading

One of the web sites I read is The Unz Review. It features interesting articles on a variety of topics. Today one of the articles explored if it is "Better to have educated parents than wealthy ones." I thought about it and posted something like this in the comments section:... Continue reading

I've been crabbing about how this first winter in Minnesota has been underwhelming. That pretty much ended this week. We started a slide into the deep freeze, along with much of the country Sunday night. Based on the forecast the school districts in the area announced there would be no... Continue reading

but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Continue reading

I like to listen to music when I do stuff around the house like cooking, cleaning, etc. Truth be told any kind of sound acts like white noise and helps me concentrate. I get distracted easily and the music helps me focus on what I'm doing. Today's source of inspiration... Continue reading

There's just about 12 minutes left and the Pats are beating the snot out of the LA Chargers(that still sounds weird). When watching sporting events I'll often follow the 4chan sports thread. The comments and memes are often pretty funny, although not recommended for the politically correct or easily offended.... Continue reading

Fascinating article. I learned many things I never knew that I’m sure will change what I think next time I hear the score of West Side Story. My siblings and I were exposed to all kinds of music growing up. Our parents’ insistence on us learning a musical instrument opened... Continue reading

We had wonderful first Christmas up here in Minnesota. The Light of My Life had a great time but she was happy to get back to her residence yesterday. #2 Son also returned to his home in Wisconsin yesterday. We missed #1 Son but were able to talk and text... Continue reading

After waking from a night’s sleep and turning into a human I grabbed a coffee and began my day. #2 Son showed up last night. We were not expecting him until today so that was a pleasant surprise. We also brought The Light of My Life up for a few... Continue reading

This picture is from about a year or so before we entered into a marriage covenant. That would make it 35 years ago as today is our 34th wedding anniversary. Getting married at the end of the calendar year was great because we were able to claim married, filing jointly... Continue reading

Humble Pie has long been one of the late Sixties/early Seventies bands to which I listen on a regular basis. Their releases from 1969's As Safe as Yesterday Is through the 1972 Smokin' are the best representation of the band, in my opinion. The first two albums were effective mixes... Continue reading

I believe Mrs. Metal Dad thinks I have some leftover affection for the Roman Catholic Church in which I was raised. This is most likely due to my fondness for liturgical, sacramental worship. I am grateful for my RCC upbringing. I have written before how it gave me an appreciation... Continue reading
