Musings & Thoughts for Wednesday, September 28, 2022, or: Wait! Is That a Hurricane I See Approaching? (Unfortunately, It Is!)


Hurricane Ian Update Hi, there, Dear Reader. It’s a gray, gloomy, and rainy Wednesday here in Lithia, Florida on September 28, 2022.

Musings & Thoughts for Sunday, September 18, 2022, or: The First Hints of Autumn (Florida-Style), and My ‘Exciting’ Saturday Night

And there is no chill – beyond that of an air conditioning unit set below 78 degrees – that nips the airContinue reading “Musings & Thoughts for Sunday, September 18, 2022, or: The First Hints of Autumn (Florida-Style), and My ‘Exciting’ Saturday Night”

Musings & Thoughts for Sunday, August 28, 2022, or: Saturday Night Was a Mix of Thunderstorms, Wargames, and Loneliness


Well, here I am at my desk on a quiet, mostly sunny Sunday morning in August. Not quite silent, mind you, I’m listening to the digital copy of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (Expanded Edition), which I have because I bought the CD album earlier this morning.
