Halloween Eve…

…and it is quiet here–they moved Trick or Treat to before the storm. Within a mile of here, there are trees down on top of houses, limbs down crushing car roofs, and debris everywhere. In other words, Cuttletown has been almost entirely spared. I am looking at video from places I used to live (NJ) …

Quick, Before The Hurricane Hits!

It’s not often that a re-post is *so* appropriate. I had completely forgotten about this one, and it’s only from a year ago. Substitute “Sandy” for “Irene”, and it all works. Inspired by PZ’s post, back just prior to Hurricane/Tropical Storm Irene hitting the east coast, about David Silverman’s appearance on Fox. Basically, Silverman was …

Trick Or Treat–Ahead Of The Storm

So because of the upcoming apocalypse hurricane nor’easter storm, the powers that be moved trick-or-treating up two nights, to tonight. Without telling me. Or Cuttledog. I was prepared. Cuttledog was not. Much barking ensued. It was an evening filled with many Captains America, a handful of Iron Men, and the usual assortment of witches, kitties, …

It’s Not A Costume!

It coming up on Halloween, there are people putting on false appearances and trying to scare you… and there are people who are just plain scary when they are being themselves. From a nearby paper, a letter to the editor today: To the editor: You folks probably won’t print this, being a leftist leaning newspaper, …

Half Right, Anyway…

stinks

I’m a sucker for church signs. Mind you, they are trying to own anything positive while distancing themselves from anything negative; an old trick, but obviously one that has worked for some. But seriously, the Jesus described in the bible was not great, if you take it at face value. He was at best “good”, …

I’m Having Some Old Friends For Dinner

friends

Update–Oh my word, that was wonderful! I thought about taking a pic of the final product, but foolishly took one bite first… and then ate it all. Braised for an hour to tenderize, then cut up and marinated overnight, then grilled just a little bit ago. And the Okto wine was the perfect accompaniment.

Hey!

Still busy, but I thought I’d pop in to say thanks–both to the people who are supplying me with wonderful quotes, and to the people who have already donated to Donors Choose via my page. It’s Friday (hey, I just realized–I have *still* not heard that song–Yay!), which means payday for some people… so I’m …

Trick Or Treat With Jesus

I hear that there is far less religion in this year’s election–in part because the people who really care about the religion of a candidate … don’t have a candidate that they consider one of their own. This is a problem with perspective; from my perspective, there has been more than enough religion in this …
