the daily enough, 3-23-20

In these uncertain times there is one thing certain – Campbells Cream of Celery Soup will never sell out. Poor ‘C of C’, you’re great for recipes but are forced to sit at the back of the bus when it comes to being lunchtime goo. Susan and I toddled out to Big Box Food this…… Continue reading the daily enough, 3-23-20

the daily belly, 3-11-20

The wife and I went to visit my lap band surgeon this morning. So far I am down one bag of water-softener salt*. This is despite being out of town for a month living on a cruise ship for seven days and three weeks in an air b’n’b where responsible fooding was at a minimum.…… Continue reading the daily belly, 3-11-20

the daily purge 1-31-20

Sometime technology can get too ‘-ology’ for The Purging Lutheran. I hads to ask My Sweet Rib what this was b’fore I photo-documented and tossed in the box for Goodwilly. It’s an alarm clock. I mean had I used the process of elimination I would have eventually narrowed it down to that. I might have…… Continue reading the daily purge 1-31-20

The Purging Lutheran, while doing my due diligence to ensure the infallibility of my posts, uncovered three meanings for the word ‘pneumatic’. It’s a Greek word which,  broken down, means ‘breath’ and/or ‘wind’. Looky here Origin early 17th century (in pneumatic (sense 2 of the…… Continue reading the daily purge 8-20-19

the daily poke (around the internet) 7-17-19

The Purging Lutheran can’t spend all my time writing stories about throwing out beat-up shoes and unopened tubes of graphite powder. As my foggy mental breakdown seems to have lightened a bit maybe it is time to broaden my horizon. Every now and then the internet tosses stuff out there which raises my eyebrows. I…… Continue reading the daily poke (around the internet) 7-17-19
