World Keeps Changing

Normally days go by quietly and I can live with that. Then out of the blue something unexpected happens. That is why my blog looks different. Someone decided to change things at 1&1. Now my blog’s theme has reverted to DEFAULT. It no longer has the delicate blue background. Also the view of the Pyramid […]

*Phreak *2* Phreak*!

The eerie screeching and wailing goes unheeded. I am once again upon a BART bound for San Francisco. There is a stench of humanity, even urine. The appearance about me is ghetto punctuated by ill; aural protests; eyes tearing with empathy for this old mismanaged system. What once was the pride of our Bay Area […]

Viral Interruption

Sometime in the near past my computer has been hit by a virus. It was insidious. It deliberately disabled my firewall and removed supporting utilities so that I am no longer able to access my own local network. This is in a way an explanation for why I have not posted a blog entry recently. […]

Life To Live!

When presented with a challenge we must be creative. After all this is not some mundane problem that has a common sense solution. Rather it is the type of issue that opens our minds to “out of the box” thinking. When the world as a whole is being led by the nose to believe that […]

Grey skies hung ominously low. Perhaps a mere veil concealing covert activity? Have you ever been in a plane that has pierced through such a cloud cover only to discover a blue sky and bright sun shine? But that is how my life is, a life full of questions; answers are few and infrequent. Super […]

Best World Ever!

There are many ways to color or alter our world. This so called “real” world that all of us live in but none of us experience in the same way. My claim goes beyond the apparent commonality of what our senses present and that our brains labor to create for we are at the center […]

Piroshky & Conversation!

In celebration of my sister’s birthday her children would be joining her on a trip to San Francisco. Their party would be taking place at a steakhouse in the embarcadero. However before going grandmother wanted her piroshky! It was good that they had brought the necessary ingredients to bake them up fresh. Tiffany made enough […]

The Great Piccione

This picture was given to me by my dear friend James, departed for many years now. He inscribed it on the back; I used PS to move it to the lower right. “The Great Piccione – 1986” he called himself and indeed he was. Jim had many talents yet was most expert at analog engineering. […]
