Ben cut my hair for many years when I lived in Atlanta. He was always crazy affordable: $20. And he gave me the best haircut I’ve had since my previous favorite stylist, Sarah. (Sarah cut my hair for many, many years back in the 1990’s before we moved to California. She was also in Atlanta.)
When I lived in Atlanta… Continue reading
Our beast is always starving and trying to look pitiful. “Feed me! I need my fresh kill or I just can’t carry on…”
The vet has him on a diet, but we are still giving him more than he is supposed to eat.… Continue reading
The same old same old, day in and day out, gets tedious, not just boring. It lulls us into a stupor. It reinforces (hardens) our thinking patterns. The same old same old dulls our senses and causes us to miss the beauty that surrounds us every single day.
No!! Not Advanced Statistical Analysis!
[dropcap]Y[/dropcap]ears ago, when I was studying advanced… Continue reading

Last week I was reminiscing about the barber shops I went to as a child. My mother read the post and asked me if the old Lucky Tiger Cru-Butch Control Hair Wax I wore in my hair way back when was still sold. I had looked for it a while back and couldn’t find it. But I thought, at her… Continue reading
So, I’ve had the walking desk for one full week. I know I’ve been walking more, a lot more. But today I wanted to figure out exactly how the desk is impacting my being more active.
Out of the Ordinary
The first thing I noticed that really is out of keeping for me: yesterday, when I was having tea here… Continue reading
I normally don’t pay attention to shoes, but who could miss these?! (Her walk appeared very difficult because of the shoes.) This was out in front of a restaurant in Atlanta.
I asked her if I could take a picture of them, and, thinking it was fun, she graciously agreed.
Notice: there is nothing holding the back of her foot… Continue reading
I’m assuming this guy was in his 70’s, well into his 70’s. He was rather feeble.
He was driving a new Mercedes Gullwing, a stunningly gorgeous car
He was so feeble, that getting into and out of the car was sadly comical.
The cool, funky door opened to the sky.
He took his read end, braced it against the headrest… Continue reading
Kindness saves the day, no: saves the whole vacation!
Our driver was the nicest man, very personable. I think he was especially happy that the traffic on New Year’s Eve was so light, almost end of the world apocalypse kind of light: where *was* everyone!
He was an older fellow, had retired from work in the fashion industry. We chit… Continue reading
I swear, I have good oral hygiene! But suddenly the old teeth are falling apart! Yesterday was not good!
Grinding, drilling, sawing, pushing and pulling, squeezing, impressions, shots, suction, air blasts, the water gun thingie, horrid bitter tastes…
O dear god in heaven!
Now, I’ve always hated dentists until my more recent adult life. My new dentist in San Francisco… Continue reading
