"I could perhaps like others have astonished you with strange improbable tales; but I rather chose to relate plain matter of fact in the simplest manner and style; because my principle design was to inform you, and not to amuse you."

Drumpf has won more popular votes than any US presidential candidate in history, except for Joe Biden. But wait, there’s more. Drumpf is the first US presidential candidate in history to lose th...

Let It Go in A small but passable life.


I forgot to mention that last Thursday, the 5th, an all time record high for November was set at 99 degrees breaking the old record of 93 degrees. Many heat records were set this past year. Ther...


Karma, bitch!


It looks like Biden, so far, has Nevada by about 12,000 votes which would give him the 270. But, get this, he now has Georgia, so far, by about 1000 votes and Pennsylvania, so far, by about 7000 ...


All Biden needs is Nevada and to maintain the lead in Arizona. Drumpf can have the rest. Prop 207 passed here. Arizona has become the 13th state to legalize cannabis. I guess I called it right by...


Yesterday afternoon I dropped Mom off at her hairdressers and I wandered next door to the Goodwill store. I was told by Nikki that I had forty-five minutes to wait. I perused the aisles until my ...

Finally! in A small but passable life.

Yesterday, a mere ten days after the 145th plus 100 degree day, the high was 66 degrees. Very, very nice. It won’t last though. It will be back up into the 80’s by day after tomorrow and maybe 90...


Wednesday a record was set for the most triple digit days in a year since 1896. 144 days it has been 100 degrees or hotter. The old record was 143. And we may add another day today. This year we’...


Sir, don’t worry, it’s a hoax. Science isn’t real. It is all fake news!


The order with the fountain pen, ink cartridges and leather journal was due on the 26th. It arrived yesterday. The other two, one with the camp stove, the Bukowski book, the drip coffee thingy, a...


I did it. I’ve successfully spent or gave away all but a little over a hundred bucks of that $1200 government handout. After a decade or so of being totally broke and really not noticing it, havi...


“The Road to Reality: A Complete Guide to the Laws of the Universe” by Roger Penrose. I hated to do it. But I had to. I closed the book somewhere in Chapter Two. I was already lost. I’m going to...


I want to thank everyone for the Happy Birthday’s. You people are the greatest! I like to have something to keep track of. At first it was the first and last 100 degree days of the year. That wou...


Yesterday was the perfect birthday. I went in to make coffee in the morning and Mom said “Happy Birthday!” I drank coffee and dinked on the interwebs. Then I went to the pool for a quick dunk and...


On the front page of prosebox at the top of the page are entries written minutes ago. Scroll to the bottom. Those entries are posted thirteen hours ago. I remember when an entry disappeared from ...


Mom woke me up at 6:30 this morning to remind me that the HVAC crew was going to be here between 7 and 8. Whatever. The crew arrived and set to work. One guy out back, one guy underneath, and on...


How many days a year are over 100 degrees here? Please! That is nothing. August 9th the record of 33 days in a year of over 110 degrees was broken. And if I’m still thinking clearly, every day si...


Yeah, it has been that long since I’ve posted an entry. I have finished reading two novels in that time though. The first one, “The Peripheral” by William Gibson was a good one. Here’s an interes...


The swimming pool is open once again. It was closed for three months. Now I can get back to my routine. Back to filling in that couple of hours between the end of the last cup of coffee and then ...


I haven’t really been taking a deep dive into news stories. I read the headlines. I listen to a few programs on NPR during my afternoon nap time. Another 1.5 million filed for unemployment the w...


Posted on April 9: Posted on June 4: Enjoy!


The bank bailouts after the 2008 financial meltdown was classified at the time as the greatest transfer of wealth ever seen in this country and most of the Western world. But it was only in the b...
