Amazon Explore, Or Where In The World Is My Wife Tonight?

I thought I was having a very productive weekend until I saw what my wife had accomplished. Not to brag but I replaced fence posts, repaired fences, did some major tree trimming and repaired a bathtub faucet for my Mother-in-law. Not bad for a weekend’s work, right?...

How To Convince Your Spouse You Need A 3D Printer

Some of my favorite memories are from the times I spent as a computer salesman during the home computer revolution. I met astronauts, entertainers and an entire community of very smart people but the number one question my prospective customers always asked was “how...

Musings On A The Existence Of Parallel Universes

The concept of parallel universes has always fascinated us. Think about worlds identical in every respect to ours except for a single difference. Somewhere out there we took that job in California or married our childhood sweetheart or won the lottery. Roger Zelazny...

    Have you ever considered what a wondrous thing it is to see color?  In spring I get to enjoy the vivid green of my pasture, the bright red of the cardinals as they feast on the insects trying to eat my pasture, the mixed reds and yellows of my wife’s roses, even the black and […]
  • Upgrading To The Prusa MK3S From the Prusa MK2 , Is It Worth It?Upgrading To The Prusa MK3S From the Prusa MK2 , Is It Worth It?
    It’s Saturday night as I listen to my new Prusa MK3S and wonder how I can justify my purchase of a third 3D printer to my wife. After two years, my Prusa MK2 was getting a bit long in the tooth. My prints were no longer a thing of beauty. Where I used to have […]
  • The Solar Powered Chicken Coop Fan Project RevisitedThe Solar Powered Chicken Coop Fan Project Revisited
    Between Google, Pinterest and the renewed interest in keeping chickens, my solar powered chicken coop fan project has become a very popular post. Although low maintenance, I was replacing the battery every year. The Texas heat and the way I hooked it up both conspired to shorten the life of the battery. This year I […]

  • Shelby, We Miss YouShelby, We Miss You
    Our first and oldest Australian Shepherd, Shelby, died early Monday morning. Her death was a natural one brought about by old age. We knew it was coming but the knowledge did little to soften the loss. She spent fifteen too short years with us, having joined our family as a rescue at the approximate age of two. […]
  • The HiBoost 4K LCD Phone Signal Booster, A ReviewThe HiBoost 4K LCD Phone Signal Booster, A Review
    Having found no reviews on the HiBoost 4K LCD phone signal booster and being prevented from posting one on Amazon I decided to write a review myself. I bought mine from Amazon on October 19, 2018 and was impressed by the performance. I live in a rural area and was only getting one bar on […]
  • Patent Reform, We Should Demand ItPatent Reform, We Should Demand It
    There is no easier way to get me to jump on a soapbox than to start a discussion on patents. While I fully support the concept of patents and I feel that the inventor should be rewarded for his efforts, I just don’t think that’s the way our system is working. Nor do I think many […]

  • School Funding, Some Skin in the GameSchool Funding, Some Skin in the Game
    Saturdays are often lively at my local feed store. People go to buy feed but they also enjoy sharing their opinions on politics, drought, school funding and other elements of life in Texas. It would be unfair to describe me as out of my element in a North Texas feed store. A sheep in the […]
  • How To Take Part In A FCC Scam Without Really TryingHow To Take Part In A FCC Scam Without Really Trying
    I think I’ve made my view of the current FCC leadership fairly clear. In my opinion, commissioner Ajit Pai has lied and misrepresented facts in order to turn the Internet over to the big cable companies. When I read that the New York Attorney General was investigating a FCC scam, I wasn’t even surprised. Twenty […]
  • I’m Male, My Stubbornness Comes NaturallyI’m Male, My Stubbornness Comes Naturally
    Male stubbornness is legendary. I think more jokes have been made about us never asking for directions than jokes about lawyers. We know you’re making fun of us and we still refuse to ask for directions. Let’s face it, Garmin is making a fortune off that trait. It’s far easier for me to trust a […]

    It’s official, I hate Daylight Savings Time. I know several hundred blogs were written on the subject this year and I saw no reason to add my voice then I started thinking about my post on apathy and realized I have to add my voice to the crowd. I’ve always …

    It should come as no surprise to anyone that reads this blog that I suffer from Technolust. I certainly won’t die from it (that is unless my wife discovers how much I paid for my latest video card).  This means that although I can’t always afford it, I always want …
