It’s recap time and it is one of the many things about the end of the year that I love. So here it goes, in snapshots. Continue reading 2020: The Year in Snapshots

A Profound Look Back at the Week: December 14-20

The closer we come to the end of the year, the fewer things are happening. As it should be. We all need a bit of a break from time to time. Continue reading A Profound Look Back at the Week: December 14-20

Customer Complaint Re Zombie Apocalypse

To whom it may concern

Dear [Insert-name-here],

I have been patient beyond measure but the time has come to vent my disappointment in how things are run on this planet with regard to humankind. Earlier this year — although the latest reports point to late 2019 — a novel coronavirus spread through the human population (and some other animals), no doubt with the purpose of containing the spread of said population. This purpose was certainly noble. The execution of the plan, however, is falling well short of expectations. Continue reading Customer Complaint Re Zombie Apocalypse

A Profound Look Back at the Week: November 30 – December 6

We’ve now been at the country house for a full week without a single water supply outage and just a petty internet outage that couldn’t even come close to a real problem.

A Profound Look Back at the Week: April 20-24

‘Twas the week when some oil prices turned negative in the latest unprecedented global event, which has made me decide to name the word “unprecedented” Word of the Year. Can’t wait to see what else unprecedented is coming our way. Continue reading A Profound Look Back at the Week: April 20-24

A Profound Look Back at the Week: Mar 16-20

It’s damn hard to try and round up a week during which everyone has been talking about one thing and nothing else but I’m taking this challenge because I’ve had enough of this as have, I dare suggest, most people who have not yet become one with their newsfeeds.
