Threes: Into the Blue Again

Two more reasons why I’m hopelessly retro: 1. I miss Tetris and Final Fantasy on NES. I can’t even begin to play the new FF games. Too confusing. 2. I still think that Pluto is a planet. Three things I did today: 1. Mailed out the PSP I sold on Amazon.com 2. Taught for three hours. 3. Tried to delete…

Gratitudes: Same as it Ever Was

Keeping track of gratitudes helps keep me positive and appreciative. The only rule is people can't be on the list because there are too many to name. Focusing on the small things keeps me mindful. Here's my gratitudes for today.

An email I sent to reporter Lynn Sweet in response to a post she made on Politics Daily on why Obama should appoint a woman to the Supreme Court: I’m writing to you about a phrasing that you wrote in the lead to your SCOTUS post. The lead to your article reads: “So a new Gallop poll shows “no clamor”…

Migrating to a New Computer

My new computer is up and running. It took a bit of effort to prepare for the migration and then to get the new computer set up the way I want it. I’m not very good with change, apparently. I seem to want everything like it was on my old computer, only faster and better. I learned some new things,…
