more on the cabin for sale

Conner Cabin from the bridgeWe spent over four years making this perfect for the two of us, but it is a bit snug with my Mom here too. We are moving to more appropriate housing and leaving our lovely riverside home behind. Major remodeling along with addition of the adjacent lot to our lease transformed this river-front home into a real find. UPDATE: The official listing information (at the bottom of the page) calls this a 756 square foot home. That is what we bought, but the 8-foot by 21-foot studio space is very much an integral part of the home. In reality, this is more accurately calculated as a 924 square foot home. I had a conversation with someone […]

happy birthday

A couple years ago I was banging on the edge of 220 pounds. It did not hang well on my frame. Worse, I was on a trajectory of continuing to grow in weight and girth. My entire wardrobe was threatening to explode, forcing a shift top and bottom to XXL. NO! I refused to expand my clothing size, … and to continue to grow into the new me. My wife was hugely instrumental in turning that around. The carbohydrates have been minimal ever since. Pasta, pizza, and all forms of bread are very limited in my diet. Dropping from 219 to 199 came gradually, but with relative ease. Just under 200 pounds I plateaued. As last winter’s cool weather […]

FOR SALE – tidy cabin on The Bitterroot

Conner Cabin from the bridgeWe spent over four years making this perfect for the two of us, but it is a bit snug with my Mom here too. We are moving to more appropriate housing and leaving our lovely riverside home behind. Major remodeling along with addition of the adjacent lot to our lease transformed this river-front home into a real find. I published many posts including pictures taken in our yard under the heading “Post Card From Conner“. That is what living here is like. looking upstream from the front lawn Four seasons in a location many spend extravagantly to visit on their vacations. Fishermen float by our front lawn in $900 per-day guided trips. The prior owner and […]

shame on us

My postings here were distracted by impressive events on the home front. We trusted, loved, gave without measure of ourselves and resources. We were building family: a strong nuclear, multi-generational family in an extraordinarily healthy community. In our dream the kids, who had a bad habit of moving on every year or two, would find our world so perfect in every way that they would cherish, treasure, and work together with us to build a dream we all could share. After all, they said so. Repeatedly. The Woman and the Snake An old woman was walking down the road when she saw a gang of thugs beating a poisonous snake. She screamed at the thugs and rescued the snake, taking […]

out to lunch

I apologize for the absence of current postings. Support for the next generation just blew up in our faces. Who-da-thunk helping would be punished? It is a complicated psychology wherein the helpees have to deamonize the helpers in order to justify their failure to uphold their part of the bargain. Nevertheless, we have been thoroughly deamoninzed. Our world will be stabilizing in a few days. The future is bright. I will get back to sharing my world views here shortly. Gotta go get trained with combat carbines tomorrow. Not that I expect to be significantly useful in that area, but stepping up from marginal competence would be good. TTFN

lost six inches

I have A LOT of “friends” on Facebook. It does not deceive me about my real-world popularity, but I do get exposed to an interesting mix of information there. I just ran across a photo of a tape measure that someone posted under the heading: I lost 6 inches around my waist. Well heck, I want to lose six inches around my waist… But I’m not so keen on the steps that would require. Ah, DUCT TAPE to the rescue. Is there anything it cannot fix? The enhanced tape measure indicates a waistline six inches less than yesterday. The really awesome thing is that my pants still fit exactly as they did before. No wardrobe refit required. No dieting. No […]

AWOL

Another week-long gap in my posting here. I’m sorry that you came here to find nothing changed. I need to do better at rewarding your visits. I will. The bus drivers are accelerating towards multiple precipices at breakneck speed while the sheep are not just enthralled with their bread and circuses, but enthusiastically cheering their exalted leaders and pummeling any who proclaim their emperors have no clothes. My mind is screaming: “It is right in your face. How can you not see it?” I get frustrated with intelligent people who don’t. They were given brains, yet they choose ignorance and blind faith. Give me another shot at sharing the news of the day as I see it, and my commentary […]

my absence

You likely noticed that I have not posted here for a week. There are two primary reasons for that. For one, I updated the operating system in the computer I use for writing and maintaining my websites. This isn’t my first rodeo, so of course I have good notes on every login I use in the world wide web. Except, oops, my notes for the maintenance logins were incorrect. I had to get around to resolving the login problem. Thus it was neither convenient nor easy to post fresh content here. The bigger reason is probably best called “emotional overload”. The Bilderbergs, as I’ve been calling the ruling elite, or The Deep State as many others of similar awareness […]

the whole page

I know my loyal fans come to this website for my scintillating writing. But I want to point out that I do put some thought and effort into the links and information placed in the side columns. I just gave those a freshening up, and reorganization. They had not been given any attention for quite a while. There is some current prioritization of older links and reference information, along with some new and updates. I encourage you to take a little time to look around … and check out anything that strikes you as potentially interesting.
