  • Lailah, xmas presents and Mouse Trap Game

    One present of the several I bought for Lailah this Christmas that i didn't wrap (since I obviously had bought too many), was Mouse Trap. I set it up today (for the next time she's over baby sitting me), and while it seemed similar to what I grew up with, it was different. So, I did some of my usual Wikipedia research, and found a pic of the '60s game which then led me to another game I played when I was a youngster, called "Crazy Clock". Do you remember "Crazy Clock"?? I found pictures of the '60s games and it brought back some nice memories. Here are photos of the current game, and the … [More...]

    iPad camera roll vs albums – not

    A geek post regarding Apple devices - you might not understand if you don't have an "i-xxx" device. A month or ago, I looked at all the photos on the iPad (copied from my phone) and decided to finally organize them (more than a few thousand taken over the last few years) into "albums", in order to reduce the size of my "camera roll". This also includes any screen shots or pics I've downloaded from Facebook, etc. So, I created an album, and moved a small set of pics from the "camera roll", intending to delete that set of pics from the camera roll. You would think there would be a way to … [More...]

    World Music

    Well, I can tell this is going to be a very good day. I just shared a post of Asian (Chinese Lute) music and now here is a wonderful music video of toe-tapping Hispanic music. I have to admit, I liked this a bit better, because the video aspect captured my visual interest (in addition to the music itself). I love World Music! Thanks goes to Carlos Arturo Castellanos for sharing. https://www.facebook.com/GDLGDLmx/videos/1777102155907249/?pnref=story … [More...]

    Books and ethical quandary

    A couple of weeks ago, BFF Rick and I were talking about the books we've been reading. I'm not sure if he reads at many as I do, but I respect his opinion on books. He indicated he had really enjoyed "Killing Lincoln" by Bill O'Reilly. I have just a little bit of animosity toward this fellow (read:idiot). I refuse to watch his show or even listen to him (or Rush L.) But, I did get myself a kindle sample of the book, and read enough to convince me to actually buy it ($10). I'm about 25% done and will probably finish it in a few days. So far, it's mostly about the end of the civil war, a … [More...]

    Memories of last few days at Unisys

    Can't believe it's been seven years. The day I wrote this, they (Mgmt) were saying I was going to be outsourced instead of laid off. A couple/few days later, I was laid off...after almost twenty nine yrs with Unisys (formerly Burroughs). ==== From June 15, 2009: "Inside sources say layoff date is this Thursday. TM and I negotiated "performance" SLA/KPIs for outsourcing contract today. He says outsourcing contract is almost finished & ready to be signed by "U" and "XYZ". Apparently the two "events" are unrelated" Original post … [More...]

    First post from the WordPress IOS app, to auto-publish to Facebook.

    "First post from the WordPress IOS app, to auto-publish to Facebook." Welcome to the new world, Brian. It's going to be a brave new world. You are such an early adopter at times, then other times, you are so reluctant to change or to try out things. No more typing into a FB small text entry window with all of its quirks and/or bugs. This seems a lot easier than typing up your post in FB, and then having to copy/paste into a blog post entry on your website (or vis-versa). It seems bold text is supported, as well as italics text. This is so striking, oops, I meant amazing. I wonder if FB will … [More...]
