Smile, It Is Monday!

Sitting at home in quarantine, all days seem pretty much the same to me, though I know for many people today is the start of a work week. So I thought I’d offer a few reasons to smile. The biggest joke of course is Canada’s government, which the Prime Minister insists believes in science in […]

Thought For The Day

When I am in a hurry I don’t always look before pressing send. Which can result in some confusion. To make matters worse, my phone has English as its default language, and I am frequently texting in German. Those words are switched to something English, usually making the sentence incomprehensible. To solve the problem I […]

The Other Kardashians

I must admit, I rarely watch television. If I did, I certainly wouldn’t count Keeping up With The Kardashians among the shows I would view. Just the thought of viewing the antics of a family that is famous for being famous is enough to keep me away from television forever. As a consumer of print […]

Basic Math

A friend posted the above on Facebook. I laughed. But I also figured it wasn’t true. After all, I remember the 1980s, and don’t remember A & W selling a 1/3 pound burger. You would think it would be the sort of thing I would remember, though admittedly I’m not sure if I was in […]

Reinforcing Stereotypes

A worldwide survey was conducted by the UN. The only question asked was: “Would you please give your honest opinion about solutions to the food shortage in the rest of the world?” The survey was a huge failure. In Africa they didn’t know what “food” meant. In Eastern Europe they didn’t know what “honest” meant. […]

This is Tuesday, Right?

I’ve never been a fan of moving, and in the next couple of weeks I have to do it twice. That is what happens when your lease expires before the first available flight. I’ve been frantically trying do work in some packing when I’m not actaully working. It becomes more complicated when you aren’t taking […]

Stressed Out?

The world seems a little stressed these days. I don’t know why – it isn’t as if we are doing anything; we’re all staying at home. I’ve noticed my stress levels on the rise, and it has nothing to do with COVID-19, except incidentally. Fortunately, it is circumstantial and should be short-term. Another month or […]

The Scam

One of the things I have missed during my stay in Germany is the telephone scammers. I don’t know if it is because Germans are too smart to be taken in, or the crooks don’t speak the language, but in four years I haven’t received one call from a dubious person trying to separate me […]

Just The Facts

Yes, I’ve used this before, more than four years ago. I’m repearting it becasue I am not interested in getting wet. Today’s planned post was the Sulzburg Market Square decked out for May Day, which is today. Or not decked out – there may be no decorations due to the pandemic. I don’t know for […]

So How Many?

can you figure it out? How many lawyers does it take to change a lightbulb? Such number as may be deemed necessary to perform the stated task in a timely and efficient manner within the strictures of the following agreement: Whereas the party of the first part, also known as “The Lawyer,” and the party […]
