Site Changes In 2015 … Please Read.

Filed under: Uncategorized — ldsrr91 @ 7:32 AM

“What is the little bracket thing with the numbers after each post?” 

This [000] 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.

“Do you moderate comments?”

Comments are scanned for content and edited for profane language and/or hate speech.  More info here.

 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 added to the file.

field-of-flowers1Ah spring!

When a man’s thoughts turn to fancy and things upstairs, generally run amuck for a short period of time.  Was over at the beanery the other day, the waitress there, wears shorts in the summer.

I was asking her when are they coming out this year, I would like to book a table.

Man I am sorry Clifford.

The other day I was over at this Sports Bar, you know, the kind of place where they have these girls dressed up like … Well, I met this bunch of guys and they were wanting to know if there were any good airports in the area.   (more…)

The Boys have been talking oil changes this week.  (I call them “The Boys” all the time, they are bus-guys over at BCM/BNO) 

Anyway, they are talking about oil changes, price of oil, and other issues guaranteed to keep you riveted to the edge of your seat.

You Remember When …


DSC00382There is a well worn phrase or title for sure. This morning I had Valentine’s Day and my A-B-C’s on my mind.  I chose this subject matter.

The Valentine’s post can wait.

Here it comes, are you ready?

Warning: Contains nothing, absolutely nothing of literary value. As most of you already know.  My blog’s major thrust today shall be, complaining, guilt and regrets. I will try not to let good writing get in the way.

 You Remember When?”  (more…)

DSC01713Early 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…)

The Short Course …

Filed under: random — ldsrr91 @ 12:04 AM

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…)

Been an interesting week for sure.  Some of it good, some of it not so good.  (more…)
