What I think of most Gluten Free People

This is hysterical:

Well worth your 6:17.

We could use a few of those tubs where I’m working now. The customers would enjoy them

Oklahoma U. Expels Racist Students, But Not Violent Football Players

I also believe in second chances, although it’s easier for me to grant them to people who merely said insensitive things than it is for me to grant them to perpetrators of violence against women. Boren, it seems, feels differently.

Reason weighs in.

Boren is an ass. So is Stoops. So is Rice. So is Pettit.

Canoe Dogs

A 35-50lb lab. That is a good idea. Maggie’s Farm.

The breeder.

A little google foo tells me there is another breeder in Oxford.

The Deuce may go to Ole Miss. Maybe I can get a puppy when he invites me to visit on football weekend.

It does look like fun.

The Transgender Triumph

The Transgender Triumph | The Weekly Standard.

A good article on WWT.

A tidbit:

The U.S. pioneer of facial feminization, 79-year-old Dr. Douglas Ousterhout of San Francisco, has grown so wealthy from his surgical work that he owns his own Sonoma County winery.

This really made me laugh out loud:

Dr. Rachel Levine, a balding, bespectacled fiftysomething doctor who transitioned five years ago and was appointed on January 27 by Pennsylvania’s new Democratic governor Tom Wolf the state’s first transgender physician general, can look to the uninitiated like Phil Silvers in a wig.

At the suggestion of Lot I google image searched Dr. Rachel Levine. That line quoted above is even funnier.

Approaching 5 Years on this thing

I started this blog just as part of an effort to learn more about how the internet works. I wanted to see if I could develop any marketable skills too. (To an extent this worked out. I’m 54. It is amazing the number of people my age that know nothing of the ways of the internet.) I’ve used what I’ve learned here in a few different employment gigs. I’ve also used what I’ve learned here to use as a hammer in a couple of other employment gigs. (I can’t stand it when someone says that it will take a while to change the “address or phone number.” When I say just give me the password, I’ll take care of it right now, it gets attention.

Over the years I’ve touched on kitchen design as a topic. (I do still hope to someday turn this URL into a business for residential kitchen remodeling.) But I think it is kinda mean to pick on others ill advised design decisions. You never know who made the decision, the kitchen designer or the client. My standard line to people was, “I’ll gladly sell you an ugly kitchen, just don’t expect to see it on my web site.”

I’ve also, since I worked in the industry, touched on higher education. The Deuce graduates from high school this spring. So next fall I’ll have two college students in the family (the Ace is a junior in college). I think I’ll pick some of that back up. There is craziness going on at college campuses right now. But then the left is always crazy. I worry about the Deuce. I don’t want to see him get caught up in some Kafkaesque moment with the Voluntary Auxiliary Thought Police and the Social Justice Warriors that inhabit most campuses.

I’ll also touch on some kitchen design since I’m back in the business. I’m working for a Euro line now. I have the best showroom in all of Texas to work from. When I had my own place I often felt like some busker singing a cappella on the street corner. With my current gig, I feel like I’m one of the three tenors with a full orchestra behind me. It is a complete joy to be in the showroom these days. What I’ll make a lukewarm promise is to show you how to use SketchUp and Festool to make a beautiful kitchen for yourself.

Oh, I’ll still post stupid shit too. I’ll never leave that behind. I will also do my best to have a little more courage on my postings. I’ve held back for fear of offending friends and relatives that know about this blog. I’m pretty convinced now that nobody reads the thing, so it’s time to get offensive.

Meet a Florida Man

Life’s Rich Pageant: Meet a Florida Man.

Guy got his dick stuck in a compound bow. He wasn’t even drinking at the time. And no, he’s not even a pervert.

The article also points us to the twitter account of Florida Man. There is some good stuff there.

This is the stuff of nightmares…

But I’m probably on the wrong side of the lines in WWT:

A little risque for this blog, but so what…

The kids are old enough…

I have no idea where I found that cartoon.

In a story about a town with no WiFi…

Why was I not surprised to see that one of the first “electrosensitives” to move to Green Bank, WV looks like this?

No WiFi!

Electrosensitives are related to Chemicalsensitives.
