Last Friday after returning home from work, I called Mr. X to chat. (Do long distance rates still drop after 5 pm.?) Anyway, as is my practice, I usually walk around the neighborhood while talking on the phone. I noticed a scantily clad Asian woman that was with some guy that was operating a commercial […]

April 11, 2018

I was minding my own business yesterday and as is my usual practice, I went out to the communal mailbox to fetch my daily installment of junk mail and hoping to see a new Netflix DVD. I received a form letter that was from one of our many local utilities. This particular envelope was from […]

Last week, I took a roadtrip to Ogden Utah to see the middle child. Along the way I had a few ideas that might end up being blog topics but I thought I’d jot down some thoughts that I had. First, Elon Musk is a fraud.  As soon as you depart the once Golden State […]

When Google Attacks

March 7, 2018

I was looking at a job opportunity yesterday and on the application was a map link to their location. Upon clicking the link this is what popped-up. I think these guys have a better rating than my local Denny’s but I’ll let you be the judges. Oh, and click here for the link on Google […]

Car Pool Troubles

November 2, 2017

A story in the news yesterday is gut-splittingly funny on several levels but before I get there, here’s my background on this issue. During a lazy summer day a few months ago, I met with an occasional contributor to this very blog near the Toys R Us in Elk Grove. As I was minding my […]

Phone Calls You Don’t Want To Get: Your Doctor

October 9, 2017

Friday, I got another call that you never want to get. This is the second one this year. The last one was from my son’s school saying he was injured. This one was from Kaiser. Kaiser never calls with good news, they send that via email or snail mail. The person on the other end […]

It’s been a week since I got that phone call that every parent fears they will get one day. You know which one I mean “This is the … Your child was hurt and … Please come now …” About 12:30 last Friday, that was the call that I received from my son’s school. It […]
