Ohio State Buckeyes - 2015 National Champions

Updating The Madness…

I really hate not being able to post. Unfortunately, my rollercoaster ride of a life just gets in the way. And then, when I do get it together enough to sit down and “creatively vent” as this blog was intended, my ever-freezing PC often just refuses to cooperate. So, I’m left with my thoughts and my ideas crashing together and piling up, like so many cars on an iced over Michigan freeway. Sigh…

At any rate, one big thing I so wanted to post about was my Ohio State Buckeyes becoming the 1st College Football National Champions of the new playoff era on Monday night…

My Adventure In Hostage Land!

A funny thing happened over the weekend, that is “funny” as in “embarrassing.” You see, I’d been experimenting over the last week or so to gradually reduce the number of things running in the background on my PC to see if I might get a better picture of what might be behind the recent increase in freeze-ups I’ve been experiencing. Well, I got tired and, worse yet, I didn’t think to turn my security settings back up before allowing my son to use my PC to do a little social networking.

No my friends, this short little rant is aimed squarely at those demigods of Automattic – a name which, today, reminds me way too much of that movie Transcendencethe Almighty folks at WordPress!

That Small Measure Of Relief…

This is for those who’ve wondered what the heel inspired me to “go off” the way I did in my A WTF Monday! post. It’s a little more involved than I had intended, so feel free to skip it if you want…

A WTF Monday!

Have you ever been just minding your own business, not hurting anyone or anything, and then out of the blue you find yourself under attack from forces outside your reach and beyond your control? Well that’s what my day has been like today. Hell, as you know, the entire past week has pretty much sucked…

Ridin’ The Storm Out

As the full story of Hurricane-turned-Superstorm Sandy continues to unravel, with so many people still waiting to see just how badly their lives have been changed by its wrath, I just wanted to share a little of what I’ve been collecting as the story developed. From the October 26, 2012 Frankenstorm: What we know about…
