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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

I’ve got so much to catch up on, now that the death star is fully operational again, it’s hard to know where to start.  So, while I figger that all out here are some bits from the past few weeks or so. As I mentioned the North Roosevelt Project is now complete.  It’s all new [...]

More than a week since the lightning strike and Beacon is still down. It was promised to be fixed this morning and someone did come by and do something. But whatever it was, it still doesn’t work. I’ve been very patient through all this but that is about to come to and end. This is [...]

It’s here. Finally, after years of heartbreak, denial, gnashing of teeth, and rending of garments, our long island nightmare is over. At sometime today, a bunch of Key West big wigs, politicians, and other worthless entities will meet across from the Searstown, and cut a ribbon to officially open the new North Roosevelt Avenue. The [...]

Beacon came in on Monday and replaced the burned out routers. I had full working wifi. On Thursday around noon a small storm came through and a bolt of lightning hit very close. My next door neighbor said his LED lights on the boat lit up. Guess what happened to the shiny new Beacon equipment? [...]

The Minimalist Budget:  July...

Better late than never.  What was planned as a cheap month got out of hand rather quickly.  A lot of little stuff added up and the month wound up way more expensive than I was hoping for. Consumables got out of control.  It just seemed like every time I turned around I was needing something. [...]

17 days after the forces of nature destroyed my means of inter web communication, it has been restored.  Beacon is now working for the moment.  I’ll get caught up here in a bit, if I can remember how this internet thingie works. Capt. Fritter
