“What is the little bracket thing with the numbers after each post?”
This  indicates the number of words in the body of the post, it is a way to keep track of content and also helps me to keep it under 500 words (my personal goal for 2015 regarding shorter posts on this site).
“I am only seeing a small portion of each post, what gives?”
Something new in 2015 is the use of summaries, short notes on the post, and not the entire article on the page. This is what you need to look for (more) the link will take you to the entire post.
We are now approaching 1,700 total posts and 1.3 million visits, look around and see what you can find. Grab a Email link and it will automatically tell you when there is something new.
Early Morning Musings: This morning I have come to terms with some impotent issues, things that in the past have given me considerable cause for concern.
So early in the morning, long before a few of you have even thought of getting up, I am hacking away at the demons that enter my world to destroy me. (more…)
Recently it has been suggested to me that some of my posts are too lengthy and should be a lot less wordy. (Is that a real word? Fairly sure that it is.) I will make an honest attempt to correct this obvious mistake. Short, concise and to the point … I got it. Today’s post is entitled “Time.“
Yesterday, weather was good, so we made a Bacon Run to China-World. Great deal of traffic on the Super Slab, the low prices on gasoline has started to show up as a plus for the consumer. They can actually afford to go somewhere now.
I saw this at China-World and thought it would be a good deal, so we bought a package and brought it home, I really cannot remember what the price of the item was. (more…)
Send me some sunshine … I will pay the freight.
Been an interesting week for sure. Some of it good, some of it not so good. (more…)
A couple of trolls shot me full of holes this week (on another site), alas, my wounds not all that severe, will heal with time and I should survive. (more…)
Honey it’s on … They are lying to us again, come watch this.
This post contains plenty of hot air, and none of it, has been deleted. I just love it when politicians come on television, knocking off World Wrestling, to tell me how good I have it. Right when you are getting into, I mean, really getting into, the Paso De-Doughblee on Dancing With The Stars, they switch to the scripted drivel that politicians call “Leadership.”
There is something being kicked around, a new vision on the horizon for bus owners. People are discussing the possibility of bringing something back from the dead (no this is not Jerry Springer, this is the real deal), a de facto expired bus board pulled from the trash-bin and given new life. (more…)
Internet is down … Wow! So this is what the outdoors looks like?
Tomorrow on Creative Endeavors, Facebook and maybe somewhere else, I am running a post entitled “New Horizons” that is loosely based on the suggestion of bringing back the old EI board. If you are interested, this is where it will be. Also, if you need a friend link for FaceBook send it, www.Boxcarokie.com doesn’t require any such thing that I know of.
A big portion of my life was spent riding the rails, so railroaders come to mind quickly. Crazy bunch of guys.
Tommy B. Lemmer was a guy I worked with on the Santa Fe Railroad. Knowing full well that there are some six billion people on this planet, I will shamelessly declare that, “Tommy was unique. He was one of a kind. He was my friend.” I have not spoken with him in years, don’t even know how to get ahold of him, but he can still make me smile. (more…)
