Remarkably Bright and Tasty Creatures

July 30, 2023

I'm going to write more words about octopuses here than you thought possible. Also, a little story-window into our Croatia trip last summer.

Campsite Visitor

August 01, 2023

If you have to be querying other people's data all day, this isn't a bad place to do it. This is probably the last post about the summer road trip. I'm in New Hampshire, camping alone with only Rosie as company.

Driving Blues

August 18, 2023

It's been a lot of driving lately. Coming back from Maine was two really long days. Camp pickup wasn't until 10:00. We left from there and drove until the wee hours. 11 states, and it was all bumper to bumper traffic from Maine through New Jersey.

I Most Definitely Did Not Get a Parking Ticket Today

August 23, 2023

I have a new morning routine that puts me in the line of fire for parking tickets. Today was the first time that it became an issue.

Nothing Going On, It's Just Fucking Hot

August 30, 2023

I went to look for hurricane coverage this morning and found to my surprise, that Hulu live has The Weather Channel now. I hope the damage from this one is minimal, and that the loss of life is limited to unloved assholes. I thought this one would be too far east to affect us, but we're having a "way west of the hurricane" days, where there's a good breeze, lower humidity, and sunny skies.

September 13, 2023

One night this week, I started watching Who is Erin Carter on Netflix, and I've got to tell you, I have never seen a more sloppily-written piece of television. I got 35 minutes into episode one. Good think I'm here to tell you what's wrong.

Let's talk about some disappointments in my life, and then look at a couple of videos.

Smoking in the Boy's Room

October 13, 2023

One of the things that the lady said reminded me of something. When I started 7th grade, my new school had a designated smoking area for students.

Travel Update, Site Update, Social Butterfly

November 01, 2023

There are a lot of upcoming changes to the site, as I still try to get all of the old stuff re-posted. Not much here, other than to report on some planning that we've done, as well as some info on what site stuff is coming up. We finish up enumerating how immensely popular theskinnyonbenny family is this week.

Orca-strating a Passage

November 10, 2023

This week, a group of Orcas sank a sailboat near the Strait of Gibraltar. You've likely being seeing these stories for several months. They've attacked a couple hundred boats over there. Very often, they do little or no damage. A few times, they've sunk the boat. This is nerve-wracking.
