Thursday, November 16, 2017      8 comments

After being married for about a year my wife and I were doing some home renovations. When it came to some colour choices, we couldn't agree. So I pulled rank and told her that I had gone to art school, and we should go with my choices. ... Read more
Clean up 12 things
Saturday, November 11, 2017      8 comments

I hate cleaning up my room. It gets very cluttered, and with my brain issues that isn't good. If I can't find something, like my hammer, then I get very frustrated. To me it is a sign that I can't remember things. I need to put things back ... Read more
Termites and Xanthan gum

I often blog with weird titles just to hook you in. My Keto world took a hit today. On the team "Team Keto!" the subject of thickening agents for thanksgiving gravy came up. Flour is usually used to thicken gravy, but if you go to th... Read more
Cold weather a long time ago ...

Don't worry, this happened to me a few years ago. So we had a power failure mid afternoon. No electricity to run the furnace fan, and so the furnace wouldn't turn on as it could overheat. No worries, outages are usually only an hour or two.... Read more
Kisses sweeter than wine
Sunday, October 29, 2017      4 comments

So as a Keto guy what do I have in the house as a sweetener? I have a big tub of powdered stevia, which I mix with water on occasion and refill a little container. So my wife was rearranging the pantry, and in the process the powdered stevi... Read more
Business trip
Wednesday, October 25, 2017      5 comments

I have a very understanding European wife. Early in our marriage, like in the first 6 months, I went on a business trip. As I was packing and putting things in my shaving kit, I noticed that there were condoms in the shaving kit, and I ha... Read more
Spider friendly
Saturday, October 21, 2017      14 comments

My wife has a phobia about spiders. If she sees one then I'm called in. I'll relocate them to outside the house. One of our friends however had an even kinder reaction. She occasionally found a dead spider in her downstairs, never used bath... Read more
DVD and VHS

When travelling the radio in my car is tuned to the CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) because they have the news every hour, and most half hours. It is both Canadian and international news. The music isn't too bad either. So the othe... Read more
Almost the 14-th
Saturday, October 14, 2017      6 comments

I hope nobody has Triskaidekaphobia. But if you do there is probably a short time until Friday the 13-th is over. Depending on your time zone, it may well be over. Here is an interesting thing. The thirteenth prime number is 41. The list of... Read more

I only tell lies.
Sunday, September 17, 2017      10 comments

This is a fancy version of "I only tell lies". Well if that is true, then that sentence is also a lie, so one does tell some things that are true, and then that sentence is false because some things that one says are true, ... oh dear. In m... Read more
Surgery or drugs ... getting younger
Tuesday, September 12, 2017      5 comments

Oh another catchy title ... now for the mundane stuff ... Clearly we all get older with time, yet in some sense our effective age can be measured by what we can do. When you get older, and loose some strength or flexibility, or health, one ... Read more
Coffee calculations
Wednesday, September 06, 2017      10 comments

This is all in Canadian dollars. I've never been one for buying my coffee at Starbucks (or similar) A morning cup of coffee there is about $5. I drink about 2 cups each morning, so across the month that would be $300. A ridiculous amount ju... Read more
Herding instinct
Monday, August 07, 2017      6 comments

A friend of our daughter brought her dog with when visiting. A border collie. It is strange how herding instincts are bred into them. Luna went round and round the main floor. The staircase is in the middle surrounded connected rooms, by di... Read more
Drugs are never the answer
Tuesday, July 11, 2017      8 comments

OK, you may have noticed ... recently my blog titles catch your attention. Sadly the blog itself is perhaps not so interesting. In this case though, drugs are the answer. In general I don't like prescription medication. Recently though... Read more
