Back in the 1970s when I was living elsewhere, my mother wrote this to me: The church had a birthday party for George Dunlap. Fifty years ago, he was well known as a lech and sticky-fingered old poop. Now by virtue of having lived to 90, he is suddenly beloved by everyone and a paragon of saintliness. There'

Note: Some of these are my photos. Some I shamelessly lifted from Facebook. I see it's been a while since I posted. That's not because of lack of things to post about; it's more that my brain has melted. It was around 113F/45C today, a few degrees warmer or cooler depending on where you are. So th

Late night in NorCal and the temps aren't too bad, 75F/24C with light breezes. But tomorrow and the next day we are expecting temps of 110F/43C with increasing clouds and humidity and possible thunderstorms. So if you don't hear from me again, it's because I have slumped into a waxy mound of sweaty meltedness on the floor.

I didn't sleep well last night. It was hot. The coyotes started carrying on in a major way, really howling and yipping, which always worries me about the cat, and the cat wanted in and out and in and out and in and out. (She seldom, if ever, leaves the fenced yard, but I still worry.) She has a cat door but lately other cat

June went out like a... well, something really hot. It was 110F/43C today with 7% humidity and we expect the same thing tomorrow. It's worrying, this kind of weather: exactly right for starting a fire, whether deliberate arson or stupidity. It's also exhausting. I don't sleep well. I've had a number of things that need to g

Late night surfing the web and I found this. It concerns personal acts of gluttony. I laughed uncontrollably at parts and felt sad at other parts. But we have all been there in some way. Edited slightly to be somewhat less offensive, though that might be a fruitless endeavor at this point.

As you probably know, the actor Eli Wallach died yesterday at the ripe old age of 98. Here is my Eli Wallach story. In 1979-80 I was living another life in New York City, working for a wretched little software mail-order company called Lifeboat Associates. It was the only software mail-order compan

Last night was my annual Summer Solstice dinner. I had so much fun making this dinner. I broke a cardinal rule of dinner parties: I had never cooked any of these dishes before. I was trusting that they would turn out. The table and the setting.

For you-all in the Southern Hemisphere, tomorrow is the first day of summer (or actually, it would be autumn where you are). We-uns up here in the north wait another day for summer. Those of you who've been with me for a while know that every June I throw a Summer Solstice dinner. This year, the first day of su

[It seems to me that more and more of my posts include the phrase "when I was a kid." I think my mother warned me this would happen.] When I was a kid, the fair was a BIG DEAL. It was held in August.

Sometimes it takes a while for what goes around to come around. It took long enough, but it finally did come around. Those of you who have been with me for a while know that about 2 1/2 years ago I was close to losing my mind over stuff that happened at work. The encapsulation is

Gary doesn't deal with heat well, and he considers anything over 80F/26C hot. Unfortunately, 118F/48C is not unheard of here. I used to enjoy the heat when I was a teenager but that was a very long time ago, and now it wears me down, but not as badly as it does him. Friday night he was feeling pretty bad from d

I like a drink as much as the next person - probably a great deal more than some - but people, if you're gonna drink, don't Facebook too. Give your keyboard to a designated sober Facebook friend. Really. I'm on the receiving end of some weird-ass posts recently.

When a woman says or does something that causes people to line up on opposite sides of the room, there will always be an extremely annoying small faction that pleads, "Why are women tearing each other down?" Because sometimes women are asshats, that's why. Being female does not automatically get you a pass from

See, I took a nap this afternoon, which doomed me to be awake at this very late hour (or very early, depending on your perspective). Things happen. For some reason I thought about Kip Lee. I went to high school with him, and I guess he was normal enough then. I do remember in biology class - this would be about

When I was a child - granted, that was a long time ago - Memorial Day was on May 30. It was not a three-day weekend. Older people like my grandmother referred to it as Decoration Day. The Uniform Monday Holiday Act was passed in 1968, moving four holidays from their traditional dates to a specified Monday in order to create

I know them. You know them. We all know them. The Nigerian scammers. We all get their emails. We delete them. I have an alternative email address that I keep for very specific business purposes. For some reason it attracts scads and scads of scam emails. I check it every few days and delete all the spam.

Post your most CRUCIAL CRUCIAL CRUCIAL-ASS movies, like the movies that explain everything about yourselves in your current incarnations (not necessarily your ten favorite movies but the ten movies that you, as a person existing currently, feel would help people get to know you) (they can change later on obviously).

Years ago there was an administrator at work whom a friend and I referred to as The Hatchet Man. If he showed up suddenly, someone was gonna be out the door. Last week it came to my attention that someone I used to be friends with is now known as The Hatchet Woman. No matter what my legacy at my ol

Last night on Facebook - you know, that other place - a friend posted a meme about the prison population in this country. He didn't get a lot of responses - at first only one, from the OP he ganked it from. Then he said it seems like outrage has gone out of fashion. I responded that  you can go into outrage over

For the past few months I have had four rifles balanced across some dining table chairs. They belonged to my father (who died in 1978). I had literally not thought about them at all in over 30 years - I assumed they just disappeared into the mists of time and completely forgot about them. As it turned out, they had been in

Recently I connected with two people I used to work with back in the days of utter and complete hell. One got out; one is still a captive. It caused me to go back and re-read my entries from when I was at the point of losing my shit when I was still working for the county. No matter how sucky it mi

On Easter Sunday it was 85F/29C. Tonight it's raining and snow is expected in the mountains. Spring. We had friends over on Easter. Since we are on a low-cholesterol diet, I skipped making ham or leg of lamb; instead I made turkey-tomatillo & black bean enchiladas, crispy baked eggplant slices, mixed greens

I haven't posted in what seems like months. I have been skimming but not really reading. *Hangs head in shame* In order for me to do LJ justice, I need to (a) be focused (b) have plenty of time (c) be in a mood to read carefully and comment thoughtfully.

Gary and I went into Salvation Army today. I was pawing through yarn and fabrics when an older woman started looking at them too. We chit-chatted about the prices and what a good deal it was and that we should stock up. I said, "I'm waiting for my husband to come over and ask me if I really need this."

We go weeks and weeks without seeing friends on an arranged basis. Yes, we run into people in the supermarket, but that isn't quite the same as visiting at someone's house or going out to lunch.
