6 Years...

Wow. Another year and the Fritter is still going strong.  Amazing.  When I started this little voyage I had no idea where it would lead and if it would even last, yet here we are, still sailing along, at least digitally if not on the water. It has been fun though, and never seeming to […]

In my never ending quest to do more with less, I bring you the story of the iPhone and the changes I have made regarding said device. I’ve been a fan of the iPhone since it first came out and it has become a very important piece of equipment for my day to day existence.  I […]

I’ve decided to run a little sale for the holidays.  Since I can’t sell my charming wit and devastating good looks, (at least not without violating some stupid court order), I’m having a sale on the next best thing, my wonderful collection of ebooks.  From now until the end of the year, you can get […]

Enough with all the election bullshit.  Time to move on to more important matters. I’ve begun the process of making Hawaii my permanent residence.  It’s going to take a few more months to complete, mainly due to logistics and tax purposes, but by the spring, if all goes right, and the new government does not […]

Are You Not Entertained?...

My goodness.  Quite a spectacle wasn’t it?  Lots of theatrics, drama, comic relief, and in the end, everybody lost, except of course for the owners of this country who are laughing at us whilst sitting on their luxury yacht sipping champagne, eating the meat of some endangered species, and grabbing women’s genitals. Let me preface […]

The First Thing You're Gonna Say Is...

I’ve dreamt of doing a lot of things over the course of my life.  Visiting faraway lands, having adventures, doing exciting things, and generally living a real life. And surprisingly, I’ve managed to actually make more than a few dreams come true. I moved to Florida, learned to scuba dive, rode a Harley across the […]

The Loooong Winter Ahead...

With the official end of summer in the rearview mirror, because anywhere north of Florida, summer ends at Labor Day, it means the start of 9 months of cold, dreary, depressing, lifeless, meaningless, drudgery.  Everybody dresses down in dark heavy clothing.  The short days are spent cleaning up leaves, shoveling snow, or scraping ice.  Not […]

A Brief Interlude...

It’s the last week of summer, such as it is in these crappy mountains, and with the holiday weekend coming up, I’m taking a short sabbatical from writing.  I apologize for the lack of decent posts over the past few months but it’s not exactly inspirational for the writing spirit around here.  I’ll probably post […]

You’ve read the book.  But did you ever wonder what the Captain looks like?  Well, here is his standard wardrobe in all it’s glory: Wait!  What do you mean, you haven’t read the book????  What the hell is the matter with you?  It has everything you could want in a single download…drama, comedy, romance, intrigue, […]

I’m not very good at communicating verbally.  I tend to speak quickly, not think before I speak (unlike the extensive thought I put in before typing these sure to be award winning posts), and I have a tendency not to give a Norwegian rodents posterior if what I say offends somebody.  Hint:  It usually does. […]

It’s still relatively warm up here and even the rain has been sporadic, leading many to claim this area is in a drought situation.  Not seeing it but it gives the weather bunnies something to talk about.  It’s only the end of July now but if one were to take a stroll through some of […]

You unfortunate people on the mainland may have heard something now and then about how laid back and relaxing living on an island can be.  Not just Key West but any island.  I can speak from experience when I say it’s all pretty much true.  When you settle in on an island, life takes on […]

No, it’s not an euphemism for being sexually abused in Pa.  FOAP is an neat little app which allows all us budding photographers to maybe make a buck or two. A quick tip of the Tilly to Rich in Joisey for sending me the link to this sure to be a money making enterprise. The […]

The days just seems to drag by up here in one of the most boring places on the planet.  I sit in my room all day like a lump trying to eke out some money on the computer.  In between, all I do is eat or go get stuff to eat.  I get no exercise […]

While I am living up in the cold, dank, rainy north for the moment, the place I am staying in does have it’s perks.  One of which is broadband internet.  But, I haven’t been using it because there is no wifi available for said broadband, until now. I’ve been paying Sprint an unDarwiny amount of money […]

Traveling Out Of A Backpack...

This past trip gave me a good chance to refine how I pack my backpack and what works best where whilst out on the road.  Even though the trip was short I took everything which I inventoried in the last 100 Thing Challenge, just in case I wound up changing plans along the way.  I […]

I’m back in Pa., all safe and sound from my all too brief trip back to Key West.  I was able to get all I needed to get done in the short time I was back on the rock and now I am going to just chill out for the rest of the year until […]
