Last Friday afternoon, precisely at 5:00pm, Beacon wifi went down again.  There was no lightning strike this time.  It just stopped.  I spent a worthless hour with tech support who could find nothing wrong, and had no viable answers for me.  It remained offline until late Tuesday morning and is now working…so far.  Nobody gave [...]

We’re looking for people with bubbling personalities. I once was big into scuba diving.  In fact, it was the main reason I moved to Florida so many years ago. I got my certification, worked in the industry a few years, and even got to do some actual breathing underwater and stuff. It was pretty interesting [...]

I mentioned that I sold the Briggs & Stratton outboard engine that came with the sailboat over this past weekend.  Why, you may ask would I sell a perfectly good, running outboard?  Several reasons. One.  I needed some working capitol.  You know, rent money.  Things have been tight and the motor was the easiest way [...]

The Minimalist Budget:  August...

And good riddance to this month.  It was nothing but bullshit from the internet going out, to the kerfluffle at the kayak gig, to just trying to come up with some money to pay Sept. rent.  Nothing seemed to go right in August.  It was an extremely stressful month, but I did somehow manage to [...]

Aug 272014

On August the 12th, the powers that be on this rock held a little ceremony to celebrate the completion of the three year North Roosevelt Renovation and Driver Nuisance Project.  I’m no expert on road construction, well actually I do have some experience shoveling that shit, but it seems to me when you celebrate the [...]

Aug 252014

Some of you have on occasion written to me to ask about what it takes to become a top notch, first rate, highly sought after, app developer.  I don’t have any idea.  But I can relate how things are going with my little spot on the app store.  And it ain’t pretty. The wifi is [...]
