the daily 2020 – a space modesty, 5-22-20

  Well, this is on our living room floor. What is it? 1. Is it a monolith (‘mono’ meaning ‘one‘, ‘lith’ meaning ‘lith’) left here by mysterious strangers from outer-space? 2. Is it an obelisk (‘obe’ meaning ‘oboe’, ‘lisk’ meaning ‘pointed nail’) left by Australopithecines (a pop band from Australia) in the dead of night? Persistent Reader:…… Continue reading the daily 2020 – a space modesty, 5-22-20

the daily puppy park, 4-7-20

Well, it’s over 70° outside and a wùnderbar day to git alōng little dogey with little dogey, KadenSuperPup (KSP). These are some of the photographs he took while I sat in the shade staring at my phone. . This is one of the rides at Off The Leash dog park. Your dog can pretend to…… Continue reading the daily puppy park, 4-7-20

the daily science experiment, 3-24-20

Long ago Somebody came up with the idea of taking a couple hydrogen atoms and an atom of oxygen, connected* them and *POOF!* it became a water molecule. Fresh water is great for drinking, mixing with Kool Aid, brushing teeth, making ice cubes and, if you want, steam. Homer Simpson took this a step further…… Continue reading the daily science experiment, 3-24-20

the daily purge 1-24-20

My Sweet Rib* puttered through the cabinettes below our bathroom sinks the other day. Among the many items** she found unworthy of keeping were several pill boxes. Getting older is a skill – a delicate ballet of eating poorly, drinking excessively and, eventually, popping pills to reverse the effects of the first two. The top…… Continue reading the daily purge 1-24-20

the daily purge 11-19-19

Here is a popular book people have been buying since 1992. The Purging Lutheran picked this up sometime in ‘two-thousand-and-clackity-clack’. My Sweet Rib and I read it (skimmed through it) to find the astonishing answers of who we really were, or are, or what we want to be. These are the options laid out by…… Continue reading the daily purge 11-19-19

the daily pork 11-1-19

The author of Know Your Groceries is named Frederick Blaine Humphrey. He was born in New York ~1876 and died in California, 1952. ‘Humphrey’ is not a common surname. Please do not mistake him for Minnesotan politician, Hubert Horatio Humphrey. It’s an easy-to-make error. Another easy doink! is to mistake Frederick Blaine Humphrey for professional typesetter, Hubert Blaine…… Continue reading the daily pork 11-1-19
