Since I am declaring Saturdays for the next couple of months my “Virtual µRV Trip” day I am […]
This is not what I planned for 2020, but then it is what no one planned. I had […]
For this Saturday post I give you my now completed µRV. It is a 1992 truck with a […]
I am having a pretty moody day today so I thought I would give you a picture that […]
It’s funny how some images and stories stick in your mind forever. That is what this post is […]
I remember June 8, 1970 very well. It was the day I joined the working world on a […]
In 1965 I was a high school senior in a very small-town rural school. The building was built about 80 years before and the creaking stairs and just about everything else showed the wear. The basement used to be the gymnasium but that had sometimes since moved next to the International Harvester repair shop downtown. We were the biggest graduating class in the schools’ history, all sixty-nine of us.
Just a little BTW (by the way) for you this Saturday. I know the term Red Invasion has […]
It seems that EVERYTHING is about Covid-19 lately. Even most of the blogs I visit daily are about it. I don’t know if you are like me, but I am becoming somewhat overwhelmed with it lately. It has only been going on for less than a month or so but it seems like a year at least. This post is going to be a respite for me and hopefully will also get your mind off it for at least a couple of minutes too.
For this Artsy Saturday I give you a Wisconsin Lighthouse taken a few years ago. I continue of […]
Like all of you, I have some regrets in the way I have chosen to live my life. That is what this post is all about.
Storytelling is something that is as old as man. Before written languages were developed and taught to the masses storytelling was the only way to pass down history. Why I seem to be obsessed with trying out storytelling is a mystery to me. That is what this post is all about.
It’s hard to imagine that the above was once cutting-edge technology. Looking back from a hundred years from […]
As I remember it many in the religious community at that time in 1970 thought Jesus Christ Superstar was sacrilegious. But it might just be the primary reason I returned to religion. That is what this post is all about.
I love the title of this post. It came from my friends at Reimagining The Future. What do we do when automation has finally eliminate the need for humans to do mundane mind boring tasks? That’s what this post is all about.
Welcome to another Abstract Realism post for this artsy Saturday. I am continuing to hone my skills so […]
For this Artsy Saturday I give you a piece of glass art I found recently at the Ft. […]
For this Artsy Saturday I give you the Frank Lloyd Wright house near Springfield Ohio. I have been […]
No, I’m not talking about a paperweight hospital or the fact that the sole practical purpose of a paperweight is to sit around keeping things from becoming unsettled. What I am talking about is the patience it takes to make a paperweight as shown above. That is what this artsy post is all about.
When I found this post from 5 years ago this week, it grabbed my attention even more than […]
The title above seems like an oxymoron. How can something be abstract and real at the same time. This post is about solving that contradiction and my fascination with the very idea.
One thing I seem to be learning lately is the title of this post. I am a septuagenarian so that may seem like a strange lesson to learn at this point in my life. That is what this post is all about.
Let’s continue our journey in the Then N’ Now series with a discussion of cars. Anybody that has seen the “Velocity” channel knows that the cars of my era are now worth many times more than their original purchase price. Would I rather have a 1970s car or one made today? That is the topic for this post.
From my “Introduction to Journalism” class I took in college I learned that the headline is the primary reason most stop and read an article. I learned that lesson well it seems. 😏 I’m not saying that having Aspie traits is awful, in fact I think they have enriched my life in more ways than they have hurt. But I am saying that another condition combined with Aspie traits makes life almost impossible at times. That is what this post is all about.
No, its not raining today, but for some reason the words in the title above popped into my mind and just won’t leave until I have thoroughly absorbed them. That is what this post is all about.
For this Saturday I thought I would go WAY back to my analog photo days of 1986. About […]
It seems that Joe Biden is the “fall-back” guy for those who want to take baby steps in recovering from the previous three years. I have serious doubts figuratively and literally on that approach. That is what this post is all about.
This post is a combination of my topics of Aspies, Philosophy, and Religion, but is centered around the topic of death. Those with Asperger’s just don’t see death as most do. And I kinda think that is a good thing. That is what this post is all about.
I have come to appreciate the work of modern sculptures. I ran across these by James Campbell entitled […]
I thought for this Saturday I would give you a painting I found at the Pennsylvania State Museum […]
I am writing this on the first day of my 74th year and as I do every year, I am philosophically looking back to where I have come from and looking forward to making my final years the best they can be. That is what this post is going to be about.
Last Wednesday I presented you with the glass gallery I discovered at the Ft. Wayne Museum of Art. […]
I was recently at the Ft. Wayne Museum of Art and came across a fabulous collection of glass. […]
I know I have put the above photo here before but I just think it deserves a Saturday […]
I am definitely a SciFi guy. I love watching almost anything in that genre. The Mad Max movies and that type of doomsday stuff is neat but I really get off on the things that show humanity on a positive note. I guess that maybe started with “Robbie the Robot” in the 1956 film Forbidden Planet. By the time the Jetsons cartoon series rolled around I was totally hooked. I just love thinking about future possibilities.
Just a simple picture for a dewey/foggy Friday morning. It was taken looking out my Study window. The […]
