The T-Tapp has been something I do infrequently. When I do it, I tend to drop things a lot--not heavy things, either. And I get tired arms such that I don't repeat some of the exercise sequences as indicated. A few days ago, I realized th... Read more

FEMA? Homeland Security?
Monday, January 30, 2012      0 comments

Thursday, January 26, 2012      8 comments

People used to write so well that it looked printed. They used to speak well, too, and more slowly and more clearly. Nowadays, I hear things on the radio that make me wonder!! Often it is a preposition problem; but, now another--inflection! ... Read more

Perry leaving to help Gingrich
Thursday, January 19, 2012      6 comments

Over two weeks ago, locally, we were told by "reporters" that Perry was already supporting the Obama-care predecessor. So, I didn't trust him after that. Come to find out, Perry simply conceded to the wisdom of something that this predecessor ... Read more
power supply
Thursday, January 19, 2012      5 comments

The fan is making some whining--has been a mild one but is getting pronounced-- and takes a few minutes to get up to speed, so maybe that is causing power disruptions on the power side of the computer. I might shut the thing down until I can bu... Read more
