Musings, music, and more…

Category: About this blog Page 1 of 2


So, after an extended period of inactivity peppered with health problems, this blog is returning to activity! With new hosting and some possible future changes in appearance, I look forward to helping fill up the Internet with posts that are — sometimes — of perhaps questionable value. Yay!

About the future

This is the 22nd consecutive daily post to this blog. The longest such stretch in its history. That string of posts will eventually break, and likely soon. This blog, like so much of my life, is without much meaning or purpose. As it stands, I cannot afford to continue the hosting plan I am on. While I won’t shut the blog down, the blog will change. Posts will be less frequent and ads will appear. Such is life. If I fall into some money, I might improve the hosting. If I get some inspiration for a specific direction to take this blog… well, we’ll see what happens. Come September things here will change unless my circumstances change. Just so you know. In the rather unlikely event that anyone actually reads this.

Life happens…

Sorry things have been slow here lately, heart problems and hospitalization. Back on track now, I hope.

If you like this blog…

My annual hosting bill comes due in about a week. If anybody wants to make a donation to help keep this site going ad-free, this is a good time to do so. No pressure, this is the only time this year I will mention the subject.


Support your favorite artists

A message from Bandcamp:


The Covid-19 pandemic has hit artists especially hard as tours and shows are canceled for the foreseeable future. To help support those impacted, we’re waiving our revenue share on all sales this Friday, March 20, from midnight to midnight PST. If you are able, please join us in putting some much needed money directly into artists’ pockets.

Read more about why we’re doing this, and please help us spread the word!

You don’t need to restrict yourself to supporting music. Local artists of all kinds in your community could use your help in these difficult times.

By the way, this is my 400th post to this blog. My thanks to all of you who are following along.

Music of the day

Music from Mongolia. Wolf Totem by The Hu. Rock on!

The HU – Wolf Totem 2018

Just a side note: This is the 350th post to this blog. Thank you to all of you who keep coming here to see what I am posting.


I’ve felt too sick to work on this. Doing somewhat better now.

Florida is…

10) A great place to be if you want to contract Eastern equine encephalitis and suffer brain damage and/or death.

11) The place where this happened: Massive python captured in Everglades sets new size record

12) The place where this happened: Scientists: Red tide is back in Florida’s southwest coast

Note: This is the 300th post to this blog. More to come.

So it seems I have an actual talent for something

It turns out I am really good at not bothering to breathe while I am asleep, and so I am also really good at getting my blood oxygen level significantly lower than it should be.  Yay me!  Sleep time is not the only time I have breathing problems, but the problems are worse at night. So, I will be getting some equipment to help counter the effects of severe sleep apnea.  I think I will be writing some blog posts to describe the process and my progress.  Maybe it will help somebody else.


Yeah, that last post was a whopping 845 words.  I get it.  Too long to pay attention to.  And that’s fine.  It’s always your choice to read or not.  I write the same either way.  If everything goes to hell in a handbasket and you end up having no idea how or why, that’s on you too.
