That’s what I accomplished yesterday. Absolutely nothing worth talking about. All I did was take up space and use up oxygen. I started the day by doing my mile on the treadmill, then answered some emails and deleted half a dozen forwards without opening them. I’ll never understand why people continue to send me stuff […]

After working in the hot garage most of Thursday afternoon insulating the door, neither Terry or I felt very energetic yesterday. The heat kind of kicked our butts. But the good news is, the job was successful. There was no heat at all coming through the door yesterday. So we suffered a little to make […]

Dragons And Inkles

Longtime readers may remember that I tried to use Dragon Dictate speech to text software to write my books off and on for over three years on my iMac and found it a total waste of time. It was so slow and had so many errors that even though I’m a slow two-finger typist, I […]

On The Go

Terry finally finished stuffing all of the envelopes with the new issue of the Gypsy Journal and told me she needed a day out, so we spent yesterday on the go. Well, after a delayed start, we did. With the back of the Explorer packed with bins of envelopes, the first order of business was […]

That is the question. While I’d really love to take my iMac out to the local cinder pit and blow it to pieces with my AR-15, that’s probably juvenile, right? And besides, it would make a mess and I’d spend the rest of the day picking up pieces of it to haul away. No, not […]

After fifteen years of presenting seminars at RV rallies and events nationwide, along with self-publishing seminars and workshops, I like to think that I’m at least halfway competent and semi-professional. But after yesterday I realize that I may have been deluding myself. I had two seminars on yesterday’s schedule, The Frugal RVer from 11:30 to […]

Escaping Escapade

The Escapade officially ended yesterday, but with vendor days over on Thursday afternoon, we either had to pay for an extra night or leave by noon. We had plenty to keep us busy so we said our goodbyes and left yesterday. It got down into the low 30s overnight and it was downright frigid when […]

I Hate Technology

Yeah, I know that some of my friends call me Gadget Boy because I like techno toys. But at the same time I hate technology. Okay, let me restate that, I hate technology when it doesn’t work. And it seems like around me, anything more than a flashlight is too technical and is going to […]

We spent much of the weekend working on projects here at home, and though I was pretty much parked at my desk for ten or twelve hours, I didn’t get much accomplished. That’s frustrating. I’ve been trying to format two of my e-books, Overlooked Arizonaand Overlooked Florida, for print. Usually that’s not a big deal […]

Hiding Out

The worst cold snap of the year has hit central Florida and we spent yesterday inside hiding out. It was down in the low 30s overnight and it doesn’t look any better for today and tonight. It was a busy day. I spent part of it trying to resolve some of the issues with my […]
