Absent For A Bit ....
Notice: Blogger has screwed up and lost a bunch of photos out of my blog! They are replaced with a gray silhouette of a human head. I will eventually get them replaced with the correct photo, it may take a while to find and fix everything. So some of my stories don't make much sense without their photos, sorry for the inconvenience.

I am using a random number generator in order to select random seasons and episodes to watch Breaking Bad in 4K from Netflix.
Netflix only has a choice of 13 items, movies and tv shows to watch, so it is not worth paying eXtra for at the moment.
Not much else is happening right now eXcept that my wife decided to add a floral shop to our business, which I think wiLL be veRy synergistic with what we already have going. I believe she has finaLLy fiLLed up our building.
Sometime in the near future I plan to get a Raspberry Pi 2 computer and play with it. For now I am studying it when I take a break from biochemistry, my first love.

I eventually went to the diner yesterday in a stage of exhaustion and hunger. I woke up from my nap after only a half hour when I wanted at least an hour.

I looked at my finger the other day and I thought, "How did I BURN my finger?!?!?"
I looked at the 'burn' veRy carefuLLy and pondered its eXistence. Then I scraped it just a little around the edge and realized that it was not a burn ... It was a thin layer of dried cheese from where I had hand washed the inside of the cup that had held my spaghetti or chili.
I had been walking around in public with dried cheese on my finger.
I thought, "What an interesting puzzle this would be for CSI folks trying to collect fingerprints."
PracticaLLy aLL my favorite (i.e. only) fictional teleBisions shows start in Jan & Feb.
A commercial comes on for The Americans.
Me: "Yea, I now have a reason to go on living."
Wife: "WHAT ?!?!?"
I saw that drones as a Christmas present are veRy popular this year.
I am probably the last person who needs a drone. 'Cause then I would have to buy a second one to have a hot spare, and then a third one to do mid-air refueling, and a fourth for ...
My son walked into the bedroom carrying a piece of mail, saying, "I bet this is a Christmas Card, because it is addressed to:
Ernest, Tamie & Cooper Boston"
I laughed and said, "I bet I know who it is from" I was right, one of my cousins from Nebraska, the younger one.
I told Cooper, "You got a Christmas Card!" (And a nice long wonderful letter) He wagged his tail and smiled.
On teleBision at the diner:

I was looking for an interesting math problem, so I decided to calculate what day of the week Jesus was born.
It was a Monday.
I was hoping for a "Son"-day.
December 19th was a bad day. I needed to be in Texas, Oklahoma and South Dakota aLL at the same time.
I chose to stay put in Texas.
Please eXcuse my temporary font mess. The blogger app and the Notepad in iPad are now doing goofy things when they try to work two-gether.

I noticed several earthquakes in Oklahoma in the past several days, some into the 4 magnitude. I get an email for each one at 3 or above for Oklahoma. So I made a prediction at 1 PM on Sunday that there would be an earthquake of at least 5 magnitude sometime within the next week.

It was reported that he was going to "physically confront Putin" about the issue. So ... I am wondering: Arm Wrestling, Boxing, or maybe a runway competition like in the movie 'Zoolander'?
Yes! I want to see the Zoolander scene again.
Question: Is David Bowie available?
I seem to recall the exact same thing happening with our navy when Obama went to Africa.

I wrote this recently in response to someone inducing me to be silly:
Story 2: In the middle of an embroidery job I noticed that my bobbin winder is sounding older and slower than usual and my deadline is critical. I call my wife, "If I could have an early Christmas present, could you run to Walmart and get me another bobbin winder, it's like a $20 item. They close in less than 2 hours and I would hate to get slowed down if my old one broke."
So the new one arrives in a little while. Same exact brand and model eXcept the start button is red not green. BUT, it is broken! The tension device doesn't work AND the bobbin holder breaks the veRy first time I put one on it. Of course Wal-Mart has just closed by this time ...
Santa? What happened?

Last night I wrote a practical joke INSIDE a dream.
In the dream I am having dinner with two gentlemen at my house. My wife in the dream is some Japanese woman. She brings out a large frozen steak to the table on a plate and tells the guests that I can cook the steak in only 3 seconds.
One of the men exclaims, "that's impossible."
I replied, "Not if you cook it at 25,000 degrees."
We all laugh and the other man asks, "yes, but, Fahrenheit or Centigrade?"
I replied, "Does it really matter?" and we laugh again.
Last Friday I was saying "... some agua ..." as part of a reminder of what to bring to work, but it came out "smog-gua".
I thought, "smogua could be a Spanglish word for acid rain." But my water is destined for the Keurig machine, so it is going to be Keurigua.
Two new wet words in one incident, a bonus.
Strange Discovery: A towel can be an eXcellent fly swatter. I accidentally dropped a towel on a fly and killed it just now. I wasn't even trying.
I can teLL I am too tired, there were way too many typo's that I just corrected. If I missed any that is even more proof.

When I first saw you I knew you would be around for a long time.
You are the funniest person who ever lived, or will ever live.
My attempts at humor are just baby steps compared to your gigantic now empty shoes.
Now you are gone.
Today you made me cry.

July 5th: Today was nothing but the kitchen sink.
You know how some homes have cuckoo clocks that announce the hour change throughout the day? In my house the distant teleBision is tuned into an NCIS marathon, so it is the opening theme song.
I go online to study electric motors at Fasco.com, and I try to download their brochure called "Fasco Facts". But I get a 404 error for all 3 language choices, which indicates they most likely have a misconfigured web page.
So I try to be helpful and send them a message through their website, and I get an automatic reply:
"This submission has been marked as spam. Please try again."
I am thinking, ...um..., "No !!!"
I hate it when elves are stupid.
The Keebler Elves changed the packaging on my Cashew Sandies. This means they paid somebody, most likely another elf, to redesign a perfectly good package and increase the cost of my cookies. They didn't change the cookie, and they let me know that on both the top and side. Notice the font is twice as large for the first line as compared to the second in the notification. AND ... I most likely would not even noticed the change IF they hadn't told me because my old empty package is long gone bye-bye. SO ... the only real new thing I notice is the
