A question and venting

I gotta ask….

Those of you that live in Houston and read this, answer me this question.

What possessed you to slow down to 35 (and slower) when going through the toll lanes on the Sam Houston Toll Road?

Seriously! Every morning when I travel from my home to work, a total of about 8 miles, I travel the toll road. No matter which lane I am in, all lanes slow down when going through the toll plaza, It’s not like we have to pay as we go, since covid came, it’s been ‘just drive on through, we will send you a bill’. You can go the posted speed of 65 and still get a bill in the mail.

Get with it people! Go the frickin’ speed limit!

Another catching up post

So, when I came home for good and the company sent me around on odd jobs it was like a new place every week.

I went to several places for small jobs around the Houston area, got put on a longer term job designing and installing a control system for replacement of outdated equipment at a milk plant here in Houston.

Later on, I ended up in San Antonio working on the same companies yogurt plant, replacing the outdated controls there.

Spent time in Pennsylvania at a pharmaceutical plant doing FDA checkout. Of course it was in the dead of winter as well.

North Carolina at a Navy fuel depot, doing a checkout of the valve control.

There are a couple other places, but I’ll save them for the next post.



I’m not completely convinced that I want to keep this theme. I think there are some great themes out there, but I’ve not found one that I want. Good thing about WordPress is I can change the theme and not have to lose any of my posts.


I’ve finally done it. I converted my blog over to WordPress. Seems like it took forever.

The main reason is Movable Type upgraded it’s platform and I didn’t want to bo through the hassle of upgrading the app on my server. WordPress does that for you.

I still need to set up a few things and re-route my old blog to the new blog. Wish me luck on that.

I’m going to try to blog more often and there will be some catching up to do from over the years.

Simple and Easy Homemade Grain Free Peanut Butter Dog Cookie Recipe

When you need a simple homemade dog cookie recipe that you can have ready in half an hour, these treats are perfect! They use only 3 ingredients, bake for 20 minutes and are full of beneficial nutrition. Coconut flour is grain and gluten free and provides healthy oils for improving the skin and coat. Peanut butter, ideally all natural, is a great source of protein and fantastic flavour. Lastly, the eggs provide additional protein and skin and coat healthy fats and oils. If you use all natural peanut butter, these treats are fairly low calorie! Due to a lack of preservatives in this recipe, these cookies will need to be stored in the refrigerator and can also be frozen!

I’ve been thinking a lot about mom lately. All because of the television show “Long Island Medium”. Theresa Caputo is able to talk to the dead, as the show tells us. I wonder, is this really true? Would I want to know if my loved ones had anything to tell me?

It’s a very scary thought. I’m not sure that I would want to know, but maybe it would help to know that ‘it’s ok’.

Anyway… Mom? If you’re there?

I still love you, and I still miss you. All the time!

The new keyboard

Well, I finally did it. Bought a keyboard for my iPad. It’s a Logitech, and it will let me place the iPad in either a portrait or landscape position.

So far, it seems to be pretty good, and it will take a little getting used to. The feel of the keys is nice, not too heavy and give some feedback as far as response. If you are used to a full size keyboard, then you will want to use it as much as you can till you get proficient with it, but for those of you that have a small computer or something similar, you will probably feel right at home with it.

This little gem also acts as a cover for your iPad, so you can fit it together and take it with you without too much effort.

I chose this particular keyboard for one reason. You can use it with your iPad in portrait mode. Most every other cover/keyboard combo, you only have the option to place the iPad in landscape mode. Bit of a bummer that….
