At last, the time of year where going outside doesn’t make me immediately think, “uck, no.” The A/C has started turning off periodically, the stickiness is leaving the air, and the mosquitos are starting, starting, to leave me alone. A little ironically, this is the time that locals start thinking about going out and doing…… Continue reading Cooler weather is approaching…
Spent most of the weekend trying to resurrect the old Links page. I would’ve gotten more back, but the moon wasn’t full yet, and the stone circle was booked, so I had to just put out some rocks I found in a parking lot. The goats were kinda off, too. Well, just little cut-outs from…… Continue reading Massive update to the links page
We got the new TV, a 65″ Samsung Crystal UHD. It’s amazing. And now that we’ve got everything set up, we can really see how bad the picture got on the old 55″ Vizio, with a dark spot in the upper left quadrant and the lower half dim in vertical bands. We got it last…… Continue reading New TV, but still the same theme
Spent another six hours staring at theme files and deciphering functions after my last post, and decided that I just wasn’t feeling it tonight. I mean, it was productive. I discovered the purpose of this theme is focused on providing a gallery type website, so that explains why things are all relational to each other,…… Continue reading Taking a break from the theme tonight
Well, I got my logo back in the upper left, but I don’t like it. Maybe because it’s the first thing I’ve ever made in Inkscape, but also because it looks kinda like butt. (And a bit tire-like, according to a friend.) So, I’m back to rummaging around in the code, and as long as…… Continue reading Tryna make habits -or- have you ever tried to buy offal online?
If you’ve read yesterday’s post, and you’re back today, you may have noticed a change. A little more font and a little less blah. Since I was already rooting around in the cellar, I started by pulling out the theme files and taking a peek. Wow, but things have changed. The CSS files are condensed…… Continue reading Well, since I posted yesterday, might as well post again
Every time I log in here, I promise I’m gonna get better about blogging again. I’m gonna mind the things that keep me going! I’m gonna get better about adulting and lifing and all that stuff! There are rainbows and butterflies and all is good! Then things happen, and I forget to log in for…… Continue reading Jeeze, time just keeps passing
Seven months ago I moved to Florida, almost eight. And the experience continues to screw with my expectations. In a good way, but still. Expectations. Screwed. Repeatedly. I moved from Minnesota at the end of February, when the Twin Cities were still quite deep in the thrall of winter. It is quite probably the stupidest…… Continue reading Month 7 in Florida
Well, this is a strange turn of events. Twenty-five years ago I was blogging every day, for at least fifteen minutes, sometimes a half hour, posting something I felt was thoughtful, witty, or even just interesting. I had readership, and there were comments. And I’m not exactly sure what changed – perhaps I just got…… Continue reading Back to Blogging…?
