I phoned, but got the "disconnected" message. Drove by this morning, and the "Open" neon sign glowed red, so I parked and went in.
KalKan, chain tire outfit now offering some mechanical, had told me that my exhaust noise meant I needed a new resonator, and they didn't have the equipment. Recommended a place in Chilliwack. But I thought, hey, there's this "Brake & Muffler" shop just around the corner from my place. Looks like a junk yard, but recommended by a previous…Continue

My neighbor got married to a 'Mexican' and she had to work at a Burger King for a while. One of her friends was working with her and the cash register came up $200 short and she got fired. A few weeks later her register came up short $200 and the general manager tried to fire her. It had ruined the other…Continue
Trump Appears to Gloat Over Chicago Shooting, after news broke that NBA star Dwyane Wade's cousin was shot dead walking a baby stroller in Chicago, Donald Trump tried to capitalize on the tragedy by making it all about him. "Dwayne Wade's cousin was just shot and killed walking her baby…Continue
This weekend it’s the annual Kitsap County Fair here in Washington State. We had nothing like it back East on Long Island. It has long become a thing of the past, pushed aside by too much suburban life, and with plenty of small local church carnivals every summer to take up the slack. Except for the East End of the Island, most rural living is gone- there are still a few farms but most have been sold to developers over the past several decades as the younger generations entered the modern…Continue

We have seen, at an increasing number of universities here and in Western Europe and in the United Kingdom, professors…Continue
It was been a time of vivid dream imagery, which is good in the sense that I am sleeping deeply enough to dream. It has been good that they aren't nightmares, too.
Thursday night's dream had me observing at a hospital where all of the employees, all female, were stealing the bedding. Blatant theft, they would…Continue
In an experiment at MIT mice fed yogurt as compared to junk food developed luxuriantly thicker fur and bigger testicles that they projected outwards, giving them an air of “mouse swagger.”
It’s Friday night and, like every other mouse in the lab, I’m cruisin’…Continue

I find this take worth considering (as I find many counter-explanations, less-than-conventional explanations, on all sorts of phenomena, worth considering.
For the August full moon my new Hope (and Wiccan) friend Alberta drove us up the notorious Coquihalla highway to a good viewing spot in the mountains. In Hope, we're the last bit of sea-level land by the Fraser River and we're surrounded by looming mountains; it takes a while for the moon to reach us - often we have…Continue

The beginning of this may seem like a really arcane discussion. Some of you who used MS DOS will remember that operations were accomplished by typing commands like “deltree” and entering. IBM and then IBM based personal computers used this system through the 1980s and early 1990s. …Continue
