This is a public service announcement. As you can see, the visual styling of my blog is a train wreck. I’ve decided to stop paying what I consider extortion1 to WooThemes for the blog theme I’ve been using for years. As a result, with the latest update of WordPress, my blog has crashed and burned visually. I could pay … Continue reading
I hate hanging things on the wall. I measure a dozen times and still end up with things not perfectly aligned. Plus, I didn’t want … Continue reading
On April 17th, Steve and I had a thrilling afternoon welcoming everyone into our home, people we hadn’t seen in a long time (in some cases for decades), and others we were meeting for the very first time! I have to confess, we were a bit worried that 170 people said they were coming to the Open House. We were … Continue reading
In my previous post, Exploring the Backside of the Tracks, I talked about my finding a specific photo location near some Atlanta westside railroad tracks. In this post, I want to talk about what’s by those tracks: The Goat Farm Arts Center. What a very cool place to discover!

My recommending a 20 minute online video is unprecedented. However, my guess: if you start watching this thing, you won’t be able to stop until the end. It’s intense. It’s astonishing. These people scoured YouTube to find what they are calling the best YouTube videos of 2015. Lucy Bergeron then presents the most intense few seconds of each of … Continue reading
You assholes are getting what’s coming to you! And you more than deserve it! You and your absurd 300GB bandwidth limit! Your horrific phone system. Your wretched customer abuse masquerading as support. Frankly, I hope Brian L. Roberts, CEO of Comcast, loses his fortunes, that all of his good employees go to work for Google and Verizon, and … Continue reading
It’s a place from a by-gone era: the tobacco and pipe shops. However, they still exist, though many of their suppliers are long since out of business. Today, I went to such a shop. I went to 3 of them actually—well… kinda, sorta, maybe.
