  • Covid-19

    The pandemic finally hit home for me and my family. In her last semester of college, face-to-face classes at GRCC have been canceled into April, the campus labs have been closed, and as a result, Lady Ronn, no longer has a job. Which I’m sure will in a small way impact our financial situation, the […]

  • Fear is Okay

    Third time is the charm, right? Let’s hope so, because this is my third attempt at giving you a blog post tonight. I wrote a post about my new custom guitar picks from Amazon, and then accidentally deleted it into oblivion. Frustrated, I wrote a post about writing the previous post and accidentally deleting it. […]

  • Sick not [sic]

    The Latin adverb sic used in brackets after a copied or quoted word that appears odd or erroneous to show that the word is quoted exactly as it stands in the original, as in a story must hold a child’s interest and “enrich his [ sic ] life.”. That is not what is going on […]

  • Summer Cold

    Friday morning we left for our family vacation with the youngest son suffering from the lingering symptoms of a typical summer cold: sore throat, runny nose, yadda, yadda, yadda. He survived the trip and once the tissues were cleared out of the car, we were none-the-worse-for-wear. He kept up with the festivities and I didn’t […]

  • Office Book Infusion

    My wife left me on Thursday and I spent the last few days in a bad way. Well, I imagine that grabbed your attention. Not to worry. Nothing crazy has transpired. Lady Ronn will be back on Monday or Tuesday, I should probably know which, but I have husband ears and such matters require little […]

  • Stye On My Eye

    Couldn’t get into see my doctor today, but I did talk to a nurse who had me go to the urgent care. The doctor there says that what I’ve got is a stye and that the body will take care of it on its own. And then he followed that up with a prescription, not […]

  • Do You See the Issue?

    Do you remember this post from September, Eye Issue? Well, if not I won’t be surprised. My right eyelid is all jacked up again. It started last night after I left the warehouse, so maybe I’ve just got some grit stuck in there. Whatever the case, I’m not loving it. I called the doctor’s office […]

  • Eye Issue

    My left eye is what too much stress and not enough sleep look like. I’m not worried about that, but what is going on with my right eye. That looks wrong.

  • Healthy Living WK09

    Week nine in healthy living is all about alcohol and tobacco and this weeks discussion board question was, What do you think the “legal” drinking age should be? Why? What community problems would arise by lowering drinking age? What is one health problem associated with alcohol or tobacco….Explain! I think the “legal” drinking age should […]

  • Healthy Living WK08

    I’ve put on a lot of weight as I’ve gotten older and it’s mostly a problem of diet. Too much soda. Too much fast food. I had horrible teeth as a child. I wore braces for four years. So I’ve had my share of body image issues. I still have them, only I’m older now […]

  • Healthy Living WK07

    How would you react if you found out your grade in a health and fitness class was going to be affected by your body composition as measured by your BMI? Are parents to blame when children are overweight? Should parents be charged with negligence in caring for their children (if a child is over weight […]

  • What is the Deal with This Thing?

    Well, the 2-week supply of antibiootics for my leg has run out and things seem better, but still not quite right. I sent this picture to my doctor with the question, “Should I make another appointment?” Apparently, not quite yet. The next step is going to be a prescription steroid cream to try for a […]
