Yes, you read the title correctly, I have found a downside to a minimalist lifestyle.  It’s not much, but it is aggravating as all hell.  Let me ‘splain. I practice a minimalist lifestyle in many ways, not just in physical possessions.  I try to keep as many aspects of life to a minimal and uncomplicated […]

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 […]

It's Something Almost All Of Us Go Through...

Ok, no island pictures, no political rants this time.  We are gonna talk about something which almost all of us has had to face at one time, the death of a loved one.  This is a long post so please be patient and take some time to read it through.  Lots of important stuff here. […]

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 decided to expand the evil empire even further and have opened a Pinterest account.  I’m still trying to figger out all the ins and outs of the damn thing but I do have a couple boards up now.  And if you notice when you hover over an image most anywhere on the blog you […]

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 […]

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 […]

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. […]

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 […]

5 years.  I cannot believe it.  The Fritter is 5 years old today.  When I started this thing I had no idea where I was going with it, but here we are, still going strong.  Still growing.  Still snarky as ever. Of all the things I’ve done, of all the adventures, all the trials and […]

It’s one thing to come up with the idea for a book.  It’s quite another to actually put said idea into words.  It’s not as easy as it seems.  Especially when you don’t have any writing ability. I was terrible in high school English classes.  Diagramming sentences, grammar, all that.  I hated it.  It didn’t […]

Notice anything different?  Yeah, I did’t get as much done as planned.  Searched some new themes but nothing really stood out so for now the Fritter will remain the same.  I did go back in and clean out some old archives.  You would be amazed how much space images take up in memory.  The stuff […]

No, they ain’t gonna dig up North Roosevelt again.  Nope, this is much more important. It’s time for the Fritter to get some much needed upgrading and maintenance.  I’ve been using the same format for awhile now and some of the backend stuff like code and memory are getting stretched to the limits.  Much like […]

October is usually a pretty good month for me.  The weather gets milder here in the islands, football is in full swing, and I generally feel somewhat optimistic, for unknown reasons.  Said optimism usually passes quickly with reality but I enjoy the moment while I can.  Financially, October is one of the more better months […]

Well, not from a place which does not exist, but even more better.  The start of October was a bit pleasant when I checked my bank statement and found not one, but two royalty deposits from my three year old, still cranking them out, not so best selling ebook, “Moving To The Florida Keys“.   Both […]

Talk of getting a new computer brought up a comment from Linda, which in turn gave me the inspiration for this post.  See how easy it is sometimes to write this stuff?  Anyways, If you are like me and tend to upgrade your computing items, be it desk tops, laptops, tablets, or phones every so […]

Fixed...

You might remember early last week, in between drunk whores and abusive evictees, my iPhone battery was in need of replacing.  I went on Amazon.com and ordered a replacement battery with all the necessary tools to complete the repair, paid for said kit, and awaited it’s arrival this past Friday.  During the week I received no […]

I'll Make Do...

It’s been rough for the old Captain lately.  Constant financial issues, dealing with losses both personal and physical, and over the past week, the problems with simply living in a room.  Through it all, however, I’ve been able to maintain some semblance of an income by way of the computer and the iPhone.  If something […]
