I Have A Patreon Account

Yes, you read that right: I broke down and got a Patreon. This was not something I would have originally planned on, since a blogger's budget is generally pretty small, if we have a budget at all. It's not as if we're always buying new cameras or plane tickets or something. Maybe this is my … Continue reading I Have A Patreon Account

Recognition Redux

It's award time in the blogging world! Well, it's always award time, and my sweet friend Gill of Realweegiemidget Reviews has nominated me for another Blogger Recognition Award and another Sunshine Blogger Award. Thanks so much, Gill! Two awards mean two sets of rules, of course, and we're going to start with the Blogger Recognition … Continue reading Recognition Redux

And the Blogosphere Recognizes…

Er...yeah, it's me again (I'm trying to be modest here, guys). Really, though, my sweet friend, Gill of Realweegiemidget Reviews nominated me for the Blogger Recognition Award, which I had never heard of but I think is a cool concept. Thanks, Gill, you're awesome! Like any good blogging award, there are certain niceties to be … Continue reading And the Blogosphere Recognizes…

And Then There Were Three…Liebsters

Unlike Hollywood, blogger awards season is year-round, and lo and behold, I've won my third Liebster, courtesy of the lovely Gill at Realweegiemidget Reviews. Thank you so much, Gill! It's always nice to be appreciated and to pass it on. If anyone is unitiated as to the responsibilities of accepting a Liebster Award, the recipient's … Continue reading And Then There Were Three…Liebsters

Live And Let Binge

Here we are again. The lockdown is pretty much over. Social distancing isn't really a thing unless someone's at a protest (or something more destructive, and in that case, all the shame on them). Worship services are finally starting to come back. Sorta. There's almost no point in going to meeting if there's no singing … Continue reading Live And Let Binge

The Binge Goes On

Aaaaand we're still quarantined in California. I won't give my opinion of certain people in charge of my state except to say, "Question everything," and "Consider the source." We do have light at the end of the tunnel, of course, but staying inside is definitely having its effects. A couple of weeks ago my dad … Continue reading The Binge Goes On

Bingeing In the Time of Coronavirus

Hi, all, hope everyone had a good Easter! I originally was supposed to go back to work tomorrow, but heh heh, no, I'm not, because I got temporarily laid off until the schools go back to normal. Whenever that is. Of all the states in the United States, California's among those which have gotten hit … Continue reading Bingeing In the Time of Coronavirus

Then There Were Two

Longfellow once wrote, "To have joy, one must share it, for happiness was born a twin." I wonder what Longfellow would say about Leibster Awards, of which I now have two, thanks to the sweet ladies at Pure Entertainment Preservation Society. Thank you so much, Tiffany and Rebekah! As always, accepting a Liebster requires the … Continue reading Then There Were Two

Shore Is Awful

Brother, can you spare a dime? I've been on a John Steinbeck kick lately. In the last couple of months I've read Travels With Charley and Cannery Row (again), plus I have Sweet Thursday and The Pastures of Heaven lined up. I think the man was an absolute genius. We're all aware of one of … Continue reading Shore Is Awful
