Medtronic, the company that makes my Minimed insulin pump, just plain rocks. I have been doing mail order prescription stuff for five years now. Merck-Medco, who handled all of my injection supplies, were invariably a pain to deal with. Medtronic makes everything as easy as possible and automatically ships the stuff to [...]

I’m a moron and I’m not afraid to admit it. Which makes me a brave moron. I must be a brave moron, because I’m not scared of terrorists. If you aren’t afraid of terrorists you are either stupid or brave, I’m both.
I’m pretty sure that it would be nigh unto impossible to [...]
I was so excited to see how many of my posts had replies today only to find out that many of them were spam. I have gone through and altered them so they won’t take you to where it originally intended, because I have no desire for them to get an increase in traffic [...]
I’m not sure what I expected that herbicide to do in 24 hours, but so far it doesn’t seem like it has done much. What I wanted it to do was kill off all the weeds magically. Just vaporize them. And then I wanted the grass to fill in over the following [...]
I have been reading quite a few blog entries and comments about John Kerry’s participation in a demonstration by Vietnam veterans that included the throwing of their ribbons and medals onto the White House lawn. It is getting attention from the right and from the left. One blog entry is from Kevin Drum [...]
Okay, I’m somewhat obsessive about things. After applying the herbicide this morning I have been going out to look at the weeds every couple of hours. I’m not even sure what I’m looking for. Some signs of deteriorating health, I guess. Maybe I’m hoping to hear one cough or wheeze. [...]
I know a little bit about many, many subjects. I can dabble in almost anything involving home repair and improvement. I’ve completely demolished and rebuilt rooms in my house. So when it comes to maintaining a home, I got it covered.
Except for one thing.
I know almost nothing about lawn care. What I [...]
I one-hour photoed them just because I was too curious to wait and, sure enough, some of the pictures were almost 7 years old.
In one of the darker episodes in my life I sold Kirby vacuums and here is photographic proof of it. Notice the extraordinary leanness that comes from starving to death.
I also [...]
First, I’m okay and the shed is a little cleaner. No reinforcements necessary.
I have found 5 different disposable cameras in my shed and house. I used up the last of 2 of them taking gratuitous pictures of my house.
I have to admit to a certain amount of trepidation over getting this [...]
I have decided since it is rainy and I’m not doing anything else, I’m going to try to organize my shed. IF I’M NOT BACK IN 24 HOURS, SEND HELP.
Just kidding, it’s not that bad. Close, though.
