  1. And the obligatory Manhattan

    In Santa Fe, of course. I didn’t get to meet the bartender at El Farol, but this was one of the best I’ve ever had. Perfectly balanced. The Flamenco Dancing show after dinner was equally amazing.  

  2. Santa Fe, NM – big fan!

    Sheri and I just got back from spending a few days in Santa Fe, NM. It’s a great, quirky place to visit, and absolutely lovely in the early fall. There were many memorable things, including a great farmers market (lots of photos coming) a visit to the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum, lots of great food, and…

  3. No other reason except that it just is

      Cats ruled the internet even in the 1890’s.

  5. And a large Pepsi, please

    I’m in the office working on the computer. Sheri is in the living room watching some sort of music awards thing. (I suspect it’s morbid curiosity rather than caring about who wins what.) I can hear some of the songs, and they sound like wounded animals whining about something or other with a drum track.…

  6. A random thought

    I might be a computer programmer, but I’m no math whiz. As soon as I hear about a train leaving Chicago at 60MPH and another leaving Detroit at 50MPH, my eyes gloss over.

  7. Inspiration

    We have a lively office culture. We joke. We kid. It’s fun. And one of my fellow employees, who acts the part of office clown was insisting that he was the source of much inspiration. I pointed out to him that he was inspiring in the same way that a bran muffin is inspiring. His reply, “Thanks…

  8. Re-tired

    I am tired tonight. I was tired yesterday, hence re-tired. I’m not sick. Just tired. And not tired of anything or anyone. Just weary. Worn down. Non-energetic. I wanted to write something interesting for my blog. Something pithy and insightful. But it just isn’t happening. So I think I’ll call it a day, and head to…

  9. It’s a sad day

    I am going to have to get used to waking up each morning in a world where Robin Williams is dead and Larry King is still alive. Doesn’t seem right.

  10. Porch time

    The smell of rain is truly glorious, sitting on a covered porch, mid 60s temperature, reading a good book. I just know I will sleep like a log tonight.

  11. Achievement Unlocked: Online Map presence

    A few months ago, we were driving from A to B and saw a Bing Maps camera car mapping parts of Denver. We followed the car for a few blocks on Grant Street heading toward Speer. I was curious if and when we would appear on Bing Maps. I started checking every couple of weeks…

  12. Why are there no “Knock Knock” jokes about America?

    Because Freedom Rings. Happy Independence Day, all you ‘Murcans!

  13. This magically appeared

    Like most offices we have a restroom at work. This appeared without prompting or warning next to the soap on the sink  the other day: Yes, it’s a real product. In fact, I’m pretty sure it’s made by the people who make “I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter”.  

  14. Another night in Colorado

    On my porch in Colorado, sipping a drink made with Colorado Bourbon and Colorado Bitters (as well as some sweet vermouth, Angostura Bitters and cherries), listening to a Colorado bird sing a Colorado bird song, reading a good book on my iPad, sitting in a comfy chair, a cool breeze accenting it all. Not a bad way…
