FIRST DOCTOR'S VISIT IN YEARS
( culture / writing / blog / health )

Yesterday, I had my first doctor's appointment in several years. Hey, I've been healthy. Shocking, I know. There was a sign on the outside door saying masks required, and a sign on the interior door saying the same thing. The receptionist was wearing a mask. I introduced myself. She asked i... read more

BNA TO SMF (2022)
( life / travel / usa / blog )

Elizabeth and I returned home late Tuesday night after a few days in California visiting family. I still despise air travel, and the mask requirement only ... read more

THANKSGIVING WEEK TRIP TO THE GULF COAST
( life / travel / usa / blog )

Just getting the rental car (minivan) in the first place was a bit of an adventure. Because we were leaving Monday morning, we wanted to pick it up Sunday night, but all local Enterprise offices are closed on Sundays, which I find weird, given that travel-and-leisure... read more

FROM HILL TO VALLEY, A LONG-WINDED POSTCARD FROM THE ROAD
( life / travel / usa / blog )

The drive from Spring Hill, Tennessee to Valley, Alabama was uneventful... until we were almost there. So close. That's a fairly generic name for a town, thou... read more

GUEST POSTING
( culture / writing / blog / friendsnews )

I've been following and listening to Jeff Goins's TribeWriters program, and he says an important aspect to successful blogging (at least as far as getting noticed) is to "guest post" on other people's blogs. Jeff is a great resource, by the way. So, if you want to post somethin... read more

BLOG CONTENT
( culture / writing / blog / internet )

I'm as guilty as anyone about trying to add content to my blog just for the sake of content (because search engines look for and rate highly based on how "fresh" your blog's content is). But someone whose blog/newsletter I subscribe to has stooped to simply stating the obvious, may... read more

FOOLING THEMSELVES
( culture / writing / blog / politics )

The elites are adept at fooling themselves and too many others into thinking that they know best. The superiority they bestow upon themselves is a convenient justification for keeping us "commoners" in the dark, and themselves in power.... read more

FALL IS DEFINITELY HERE
( life / health / environment / blog )

It was actually cold all day today, but that didn't stop me and Elizabeth, then the pugs, from spending half of our day outside! First, we went exploring the new neighborhood being built nearby. I don't know why they're building. There's plenty of existing houses that no one wants to... read more

THAWING OUT
( culture / writing / blog / weather )

Hopefully. It snowed a good 5-6 inches Friday in and around Nashville. It wasn't good snowman/snowball snow, though. Not in our neighborhood, anyway. It was too crusty because of the freezing rain that came after the snow. It made for great sledding, though, which Elizabeth and I spent several h... read more
