Day Six of My Blogging Break: Music Monday – A Movie Classic

The past few days I've been watching quite a few movies (there will be a separate post on what those movies were), but one of the films was Casablanca. I know the movie is considered a classic and I've seen many clips from it over the years, but I don't think I've ever watched the … Continue reading Day Six of My Blogging Break: Music Monday – A Movie Classic

Day Five of My Blogging Break: Seriously? $4,450 for This?

Just last week I wrote about one of the latest trends in men's fashion covered by the Wall Street Journal: kidcore. This is a style where grown men dress teenager style. Well, they are back at it again this week. But this time, I actually don't mind this supposed new trend: cross-body bags. Cross-body bags—especially … Continue reading Day Five of My Blogging Break: Seriously? $4,450 for This?

Day Four of My Blogging Break: This Time, I Agree with Dan Ariely

It seems that lately, I haven't agreed much with Dan Ariely's advice to his readers. But this time I do, and in fact, I am going to urge all of you to follow his advice as well. I'll even give you an example of how to do so. Here is the letter Dan received: I’m … Continue reading Day Four of My Blogging Break: This Time, I Agree with Dan Ariely

Day Three of My Break from Blogging: Please Don’t Be Mad at Me, PETA

I hadn't eaten anything for two days, and while I still wasn't that hungry, I figured I had to eat something. And for some reason the only food that came to mind that I thought I could handle was some Chicken Noodle soup. As many of you know, I've been a vegan for over 15 … Continue reading Day Three of My Break from Blogging: Please Don’t Be Mad at Me, PETA

Day Two of My Break from Blogging

A while ago, I had planned to do a post that would include two videos of me solving Rubik's Cube (I'm guessing I've lost half my readers at this point). One video would be a relatively short one of me solving without much talking, and the second video would be a longer one that included … Continue reading Day Two of My Break from Blogging

Taking a Bit of a Blogging Break

I'm not feeling 100%, so I will be scaling back my blogging activities. This means I will not be reading or commenting on other people's blog posts, and I have turned off comments on my blog, for now. Today's post will be the equivalent of Jason Kelce of the Philadelphia Eagles football team going in … Continue reading Taking a Bit of a Blogging Break

Music Monday: When Memes Collide

My youngest son asked Alexa to play a song the other day, Ocean Man, and it is one of those songs that I immediately liked. I asked him how he found out about the song and he told me it was part of a meme that featured different songs set to the footage of another … Continue reading Music Monday: When Memes Collide

This Is One Disease I Wouldn’t Mind Having

I first read about this disease while reading a Wikipedia article about the Great Barrington Declaration. The Great Barrington Declaration is a proposal drafted at the American Institute for Economic Research in Great Barrington, Massachusetts and signed there on 4 October 2020. It advocates an alternative, risk-based approach to the COVID-19 pandemic that involves "Focused Protection" of those most at risk and seeks … Continue reading This Is One Disease I Wouldn’t Mind Having

Music Monday: America’s Answer to the Beatles – The Monkees

If you’re of a certain age, you’ve heard of the Monkees. They were one of the hottest bands of the late 60s. The Monkees are an American rock and pop band originally active between 1966 and 1971, with reunion albums and tours in the decades that followed. Their original line-up consisted of the American actor/musicians … Continue reading Music Monday: America’s Answer to the Beatles – The Monkees

AP, AR, ADA, PPE, STI: When Accounting Jargon Collides with the Real World

I was driving home from Dunkin’ Donuts earlier today, part of my Sunday morning routine, and I noticed the car in front of me had a customized license plate. The license plate was “BDE”. I’m sure it was probably someone’s initials, but the first thought that came to my mind was “Bad Debt Expense”, an … Continue reading AP, AR, ADA, PPE, STI: When Accounting Jargon Collides with the Real World
