Please Excuse Our Dust

Hoystory was moved over to a new, quicker server over the weekend. Because sometimes it seems like the universe just hates me, the move did not go easily. The tool that the hosting service provides would not move the site over as-is. So way too much time was spent by yours truly using ancient hand-crafted […]

Not dead, just busy

I’d apologize for the lack of updates lately, but you get what you pay for. The past couple months have been crazy busy between three jobs—one day job and two online evening jobs—and something had to give. This site was it. I hope to begin posting a little more often now that the busiest time […]

Hoystory and guns

Two weeks ago I was in Las Vegas for the Mountain West Conference basketball tournament and because of the limited airline options in the Central Coast region of California, I arrived in Sin City several days before the tournament started. There are a variety of businesses in Las Vegas that offer visitors the opportunity to […]

Return to normalcy—sort of

OK, so the website should appear more normal than it has the past few weeks after I did some upgrading to the theme. I’ve still got a list of things to do, including some CSS editing, adding some additional graphics, etc. The Post Ratings will hopefully return. I’ve got to get some answers on how […]

So, I watched the movie Crooked Arrows Sunday night after the Super Bowl. If you like lacrosse or want to know just what the heck lacrosse is, I’d encourage you to see it.

Somebody said, oh, […]

A quick personal note

Posting has been sporadic lately largely for two reasons: First, I’ve suffered a relatively minor recurrence of sciatica that first hit me about 5 years ago. So, I’m currently in a reasonable amount of pain which makes it difficult to summon the necessary energy and moral outrage to blog. Second, I’ve taken a part time […]

Cross-posting to Facebook

I wrote the following on Facebook this afternoon. I cross-post it here for posterity and wider dissemination. This is my only political Facebook post this election year. There’s really only one reason I’m on Facebook–I want to keep up with what’s happening in my friends’ lives. I’m amused by the pictures of your children. I […]

A brief word on Cain

Posted · Add Comment

The media coverage this week of allegations that Herman Cain sexually harassed some women back in the ’90s are so devoid of details and incriminating facts so as to be less than useless. What we know is that Cain allegedly did some thing or things that made a couple women uncomfortable. If that’s the standard […]
