Happy Mother’s Day!

For some reason this Paul Simon song has been playing in my head for days, so it occurs to me that Mother’s Day is the perfect day to get it out of my head and into yours! 😀 Happy Mother’s Day! 😀 If it’s a good laugh you’re looking for, check out last year’s Your…

Monsterbox

As open minded as I am when it comes to changes in my “intellectual” landscape, I’m not nearly as open minded when it comes to changes in my living arrangements. So, as you can probably imagine, having my son move in with me again has been somewhat of an “adjustment” for me. 😉 But as…

Man, I Need To Get A Life!

I was really moved by this graphic posted by Don in Massachusetts. That is of course, until I got to the end… At which point I went into a full blown panic, running around checking to make sure my curtains were all closed and that there no hidden cameras anywhere in my apartment! 😯 But…

Where the Hell is Matt?

My friend Rosie sent this to me in an email, including only the simple statement: “Wish the world could be this way…. all the time…..” I couldn’t agree more! 😀 Via APOD: 2012 July 10 – Happy People Dancing on Planet Earthand Where the Hell is Matt’s channel on YouTube More at Where The Hell…

I Need Stress Relief – Now!

I received the very disturbing news this morning that my ex-wife had to be hospitalized last night after suffering a mild heart attack.

In addition to the countless blog subscriptions I haven’t a chance in hell of keeping up with, and the seemingly infinite list of bookmarks I’ve generated for things I want to blog about myself, I’ve now become addicted to insanely funny images like this one from Facebook: Via Trollable on Facebook How…

Noise Pollution

I’ve mentioned, here and on other blogs, that I keep a Facebook account as a way to “loosely” stay in touch with family. I’ve also mentioned that I think one of the reasons for Facebook’s success is its ability to provide the “feel” of real social interaction without the messy “physical” components of real interaction…

The Living Years

One of my greatest regrets is not having the time to get to know my father. Hell, I don’t even know for sure if the man I remember was really my father at all. But I still wish I’d got to know him before it was too late. I’m sure that, like me, you too…

MORTYS

MORTYS by Bad Kidow Company is a beautifully done French language video with English subtitles. I used Google Translate to present the text from it’s Vimeo page here in English: “In the 21st century, emotional and generational conflict between mother and son in one detail … The mother is none other than Death.” Mortys is…
