Obviously this didn’t come from grandma’s house. The Gramophone came from Restoration Hardware a couple of weeks ago and acoustically amplifies the music from the handheld device you place in the slit. It actually works amazingly well. The sound travels into the hollow bottom and then out the metal horn shape. It gains a slightly vintage sound. I love it!
I think Ruth Bader Ginsburg is one of America‘s great national treasures. I’ve blogged about my admiration of her before. Even into her 80’s, she’s an amazing voice for justice on the Supreme Court of the United States—a quick-witted, liberal voice of sanity in a bleak world of conservative darkness and repression. I think she’s awesome!
Conrad the Kat, our animaux sauvage, was born on November 1, 1999. Today is his birthday. He is 15 years old! He actually has a really good life. He spends it demanding his fresh kill at 5:30am and again at 5:00pm.
The heater sits atop the roof. The gas earthquake detector shut the gas off when workers were working around the house and bumped into it with something. I had to relight the hot water heater. I never even thought about the HVAC system.

I’m not sure if one wishes others a “happy” Halloween—maybe a horrifying one is more apropos? At any rate, these images have come through my RSS aggregator over the past week. They are truely frightening; so, I thought I would share. I’m just sweet that way.
With great delight, I called AT&T today and canceled my account. The representative obviously lies to me right off the bat: he tells me that he can not cancel my account. He says he needs to send me to a specialist (customer retention expert) that can give me my options—despite the fact that I already know […]
For arranging folders in the Finder, I recently have discovered that I have been underusing the more granular viewing controls Apple provides for Finder windows.
It was her first time… It was my first time. It seemed unnecessarily awkward. It was just not going the way either of us thought it would. Wasn’t this supposed to be fun? We kept trying different positions—every position we could think of. Nothing seemed to work. Until, very unexpectedly, it happened.
