Out of Habit?

Out of Habit?

by There are a number of things that I wonder if I just do out of habit. The thing that I’m thinking of this morning is reading X-Men comics. Online subscriptions are a thing, not that I couldn’t get other ways I want to, but I’m getting closer and closer to being caught up to …

Perception Is Not Reality

Perception Is Not Reality

by It’s actually a stupid statement, whether you mean it literally or figuratively, but it’s been so often repeated over the last several decades and in so many places that it bears making the point again. Perception is not reality. But people do react to their perception, and the picture they built in their heads …

Kava-not a Fan, A Canadian Perspective

Kava-not a Fan, A Canadian Perspective

by So this started as something someone asked me via PM on Facebook. Apparently, I’m a balanced and reasonable guy. I’d debate that some days. But I’m always happy to discuss or debate any topic, as long as both sides are willing to be reasonable and actually discuss or debate and listen to each other. …

My Little Car

My Little Car

by So I keep saying that I would like to get at least two more years out of my car. I still feel like that should be possible, but there are days when I wonder. Fuel efficiency is not quite as good as it was when I got it in the summer of 2017, surprise, …

by It is time to turn some of my creative energy to satire. I’ve dabbled in it here and there, but never for long and never seriously. There’s nothing wrong with the bit of slacktivism I’ve been doing, sharing memes sizes trying to stir people up here and there and starting or participating in online …

October 1st

by It’s the first of October in the year 2018. First of a new month. Writing month, business month, calendar month. It’s breast cancer month. Pink belts at the dojo. The tenth month of the year, the tenth month of my 48th year, although that really started a couple of days ago. My birthday doesn’t …

Being Right

Being Right

by Everyone likes being right, right Usually, that’s the case. This morning, I’m less happy about it, at least in one specific instance. This week, on apparently a variety of news media, our still-new provincial government followed through on a campaign promise that almost no one thought it would keep. In spite of everything, in …

Middle Age Is Not for the Weak

Middle Age Is Not for the Weak

by To be middle aged is to be caught between worlds sometimes. You still remember your youth very well, and frequently the dreams and aspirations you had. But you’re caught up in the day-to-day, the survival, making the right decisions, the best ones for your family, younger and older. Not easy place to be. But …

Eternally Star Trek

Eternally Star Trek

by So I’ll be 48 years old soon, which makes Star Trek 52 now. Read here and there on this blog, and you figure out very quickly that that’s important to me. You’ll probably find somewhere, and more than once, the shared fact that I believe one of my earliest memories to be sitting in …
