The great thing about Nespresso coffee pods that are ostensibly good for the environment is that they are recyclable. So you take the used pods and put them into Nespresso's pre-labeled bag, seal it up, and drop it off at any UPS location, no questions asked. That's very convenient as...

Dreams and weddings

I had strange dreams last night, but don't worry. I'm not going to bore you by describing them.

Why is it that some people love to describe their wild dreams to other people? There's nothing worse than someone saying, "Oh I had this CRAZY dream last night..." You know you're in...

Interviews today

In the business world, the purpose of the resume is to get you an interview. I've been reading a lot of resumes lately as I evaluate candidates for resource requests from my clients. Let me start with something basic: there should be ZERO mistakes/typos on your resume. You should have...

Outlook Shenanigans

As I am finally able to tame the inbox for the client that I switched from part-time to full-time, I noticed some strange habits. Time for a rant about people's use and misuse of Outlook.

Read Receipts
Why does anyone choose to send a read receipt with an email? Anytime I get...

Toilet overflow

"I was on a timetable because the maid was coming and I had a clogged toilet that overflowed everywhere."

"That sounds like perfect timing to me. Let her take care of it."

"I'm not going to do that! She can't clean the bathroom properly if there's a clogged toilet!"

"What did you have...

Some no-name/non-name tests positive for COVID

This morning during my perusal of headlines in my SmartNews app, I saw this one: "Stephen Colbert tests positive for COVID." Let me ask the obvious question. Why is this a headline???

If someone in your inner circle tests positive for Everyone's Favorite Virus™️, that matters to you. Other than that,...

So much for CNN

Did we really need another streaming service? Apparently, the leaders at CNN thought so and the people have spoken. CNN+ is in free fall, and Chris Wallace is probably second-guessing his move from Fox News.

Is CNN still pretending to be relevant? People love to rail against Fox News as...

A tale of sour milk

For many years, I've had a penchant for writing summaries of events. I used to write weekly summaries for my work colleagues, which were bulleted lists of funny observations I had during the week. I extended this practice to summarizing big trips or visits. These summaries are a great way...

So much for DuckDuckGo

I swapped DuckDuckGo for Google quite a ways back. I was particularly annoyed with the inability to find solid health-related information on Google. I can't imagine anyone expects unbiased results on Google, but things are getting out of hand in the era of "misinformation." Who decides that anyway? Apparently, the...

A fresh batch of non-names

Leave it up to the Grammys to provide a fresh batch of non-names. Remember, non-names are different from no-names. A no-name is someone you don't recognize, but it still has the dignity of a name. A non-name is completely made up. All of these are non-names, and many of them...

Life Force - book darts
The Miracle of Organ Regeneration

Pg 126 "The person who makes no mistakes is making the biggest mistakes."

"When most people have a dream or goal, they get excited until they start to confront how they're going to achieve it. Since they don't yet know how, they get demoralized. They lose the sense of certainty that...
