About Cars Posted on Dec 29, 2020, 10:12 pm
Dad backed the car out of our driveway, drove around the block, pulled back into the driveway. And never got behind a steering wheel again for the rest of his life.

Rainy Days Posted on Dec 26, 2020, 10:12 pm
When I was growing up, they showed cartoons at the junior high auditorium on rainy days during vacation times. (And, before someone asks, I have no idea who "they" were.)

An Atypical Christmas Posted on Dec 25, 2020, 8:12 pm
If I am home, I usually do the stereotypical Jewish Christmas of Chinese food and a movie.

Advertising Posted on Dec 16, 2020, 10:12 pm
I sometimes play games on my phone and they tend to have ads. I don't understand some of the ads.

WMATA Posted on Dec 15, 2020, 10:12 pm
I took the Metro today for the first time in a little over 9 months, because I had a doctor's appointment and I can't deal with driving in the city.

Doctor Doctor Posted on Dec 14, 2020, 10:12 pm
This whole kerfuffle that arose when a failed college instructor attacked Dr. Jill Biden over using her professional title is fairly comic in an awful way.

This Weekend Posted on Dec 13, 2020, 10:12 pm
Of course, the real point of food stories is that food is a way of bringing people together.

Token Holidailies Post Posted on Dec 12, 2020, 10:12 pm
Too tired to write.

Thanksgiving Dinner (and a bonus recipe) Posted on Dec 11, 2020, 8:12 pm

I don't know what most of the factories made, even though we liked dumpster diving on the factory blocks and brought home all sorts of treasures.

Stitches and Stories Posted on Dec 9, 2020, 9:12 pm
I found a counted cross-stitch kit that looked appealing. It took me a while to figure out where it came from, but I realized from the price sticker on it that I had bought it in Bangkok in 2003.

Something About the Street I Grew Up On Posted on Dec 4, 2020, 11:12 pm
Island Park had a population of about 5000 on a good day and was the sort of place where streets were named after the family who lived on the corner house. But it was well known in the rock music world for a club called The Action House.

Mostly About Virginia Elections Posted on Dec 3, 2020, 10:12 pm
By the way, my favorite Virginia Republican is Representative Denver Riggleman, whose name will always be unfairly associated with the phrase “Bigfoot erotica.”

IAJGS Conference - Days 3 and 4 Posted on Dec 2, 2020, 11:12 pm
I suppose that now that I am retired I have no real excuse for continuing to avoid a rather legendary cousin who was always referred to as Sam Katz, the dwarf Communist printer.
