Is This Where Things Are Heading?

  Digital currency again! Crypto gold is now a topic of conversation. Bitcoin is non-extant, non-physical currency, traded on the financial markets as if it were tangible and solid when it is not. What happens if the databanks that harbor this electronic currency go dark, perhaps caused by an EMP or something worse? To someone […]

So, Really:  Just How Much Fuel Do Electric Vehicles “Burn”?

Intro I keep hearing how great electric vehicles are. “They’ll save the planet!” proponents say. “They’re the wave of the future!” And I think we’ve all seen or heard the “equivalent of 100+ MPG” claims made by some electric vehicle manufacturers (and the EPA). But I haven’t seen one simple question answered: just how much […]

Thursdays Are For Cooking!

Well, it is Thursday again, and this is a simple, easy recipe that takes nearly no effort, other than a modest amount of prepping. This recipe is kind of loosely done, as it’s about frittatas.

Thursdays Are For Cooking

I still like the slow cooker/Crockpot because it’s “set it and forget it” until you catch the scent of properly cooked food floating through the air. And this one is perfect for summer because it takes very little work on your part. I’d let this baby simmer all day, especially if I’m going to be […]

Thursdays Are For Cooking!

And this week’s attempt at a free-for-all in food is that summer specialty, potato salad. Now, since this is really one of those side dishes you throw together, sometimes out of leftovers and end-of-the-stalk stuff, the ingredients are wide open.  My personal favorite is plain old American-style potato salad, with no special “things” in it, […]

We’re still getting hit with hot muggy weather in my AO, which is probably true for most of the rest of you. No, I have not yet seen Comet Neowise, but I do wonder what things will be like when it returns in 6800 years. An interesting side note is that comets were considered portents […]
