  • Out of Practice

    It’s kinda ridiculous how much time I have spent today trying to think of something to put on this blog. And yet, this was the best I could come up with. The worst part is, I haven’t even finished the Guitar Build post I’ve been working on for two days. What’s the deal? I used […]

  • New Site. New Tools. Same Old Issues.

    I’m trying this again. Probably, you figured that out already, as this site has been back up since April. This time around I’m using DreamHost as my web hosting provider. I picked out one of their dedicated WordPress plans. As part of that plan I have access to the BoldGrid website builder, which I’m unfamiliar […]

  • Bo Breaks Down Anti-Lockdown Arguments

  • What Am I Doing?

    One of the biggest problems I’ve always had with my website is that I don’t honestly know what I’m trying to project or have a cohesive message. Initially the brand was me, Ronn McCarrick, and then the brand became arohen and I’ve toyed with things like Blackmoon, Rampant Lion, Creative Investigator, 120nn HomeStudios, and 274 […]

  • Decision Time

    Well, I put on jeans today to work on the garage for the first time this season. I guess winter really is coming and summer is over. Bummer. I’m trying to make a decision about the future of this website. My hosting is up for renewal and if I don’t renew things will go dark […]

  • Think, Then Speak

  • Joys of Home Ownership

    Just a quick update on all the home renovation going on around these parts. They’re still working on fencing in the backyard. They’re working hard, but I can’t get them to put a full day in and just get it done. Last night they completed most of it, but there are still a few slats […]

  • Happy Father's Day

    Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there. My Father’s Day gift this year was a cordless leaf blower that works with the same battery that my string trimmer uses. It was an added bonus that the box was a trainwreck and so the folks over at Home Depot gave me $25 off the […]

  • I Hope This is a Long Summer

    A friend asked me, today, if I was playing guitar. I had to laugh, because, I don’t really play the guitar, so much as I practice the guitar. To play infers some degree of musicality to the thing. There is really very little music being made here. But, yes, I continue to wrestle with this […]

  • Cooling Things Down

    I broke down and turned on the air conditioning yesterday. Looking at the weather page for yesterday says that we hit 84 degrees, but I seem to remember the outdoor reading being higher than that on the thermostat. And when the thermostat in the house hit 89, well, that was too much. I broke down […]

  • Best President

    I saw a post on Facebook the other day claiming that the three greatest U.S. presidents were Abraham Lincoln, Ronald Reagan, and Donald Trump. While I don’t agree with that list, it did get me wondering. So who are the three greatest presidents? I would guess that Lincoln is on that list, and while I […]

  • I Just Don't Understand

    I’m going to ramble and rant for a bit here. I really need to stay away from the news… It must be Saturday. Look, insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence. You have rights, sure. But those rights are to protect you from the government. Not from me. You can […]
