RTotD: Dogs Possess Other Dogs

It’s been 7 weeks since we lost Gus. The first couple of weeks after his passing were especially difficult, but then we began noticing something peculiar. Our 1 1/2 year old Westie started exhibiting behaviors similar to Gus. So much so that it gives credence to dogs having souls and they can take possession of other dogs. Gus had exactly the kind of personality that even in death, he still gets what he wants. Therefore it would not surprise me at all if he will occasionally take possession of Gibbs. It began with subtle behaviors that we just assumed Gibbs picked up on and we [… Click to Continue …]

RTotD: A Star Trek Interlude

We are in a Star Wars lull now. We are between movies and television series. Amid this well deserved break, what is a Star Wars geek to do? We do have the Clone Wars finale season coming up in February so watching the other seasons is an option. There is also Rebels and Resistance I could catch up on. However, much sooner than Season 7 of The Clone Wars is the new Star Trek series Picard premiering on January 23rd. It has almost perfect timing. I know what you are probably thinking. It’s blasphemous that a Star Wars fanboy, such as myself, would condone Star [… Click to Continue …]

It's Santa's Fault I'm MIA

The Thanksgiving and Christmas season is always pretty busy for me. I have to make sure I’m efficient at work as I usually take quite a bit of time off for both holiday’s to spend time with family. In fact that is the reason I haven’t written a post since the Rise of Skywalker trailer. I have some posts in draft or in mind, I just haven’t had the time to complete them. I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving (US); mine was excellent. My in-laws know how to provide a wonderful Thanksgiving vacation experience. This year they treated us to the Christmas Spectacular starring [… Click to Continue …]

RTotD: Better Than A Smoking Addiction

Addiction, the fact or condition of being addicted to a particular substance, thing, or activity. Me? I’m addicted to running. If the temperature is above 90 or below 30, I still find a way to safely go for a run. Aside from the weekends, if the day is nearly over and I haven’t gone for a run, I’m anxious. It means I’ve been sitting too long and experiencing cabin fever.  If it is truly “not safe” to run outdoors, my alternative is to use the treadmill. I am more likely to concede to use the treadmill when its too cold versus too hot. However the [… Click to Continue …]

RTotD: Overdue Gaming Ruminations

I call this a gamer’s blog but I haven’t posted anything related to gaming all year, so I’m overdue for some gaming ruminations. The reason, primarily, is that I’m only really playing one game and I’m sure there aren’t many interested in more World of Warcraft posts. If you’re interested in a brief raiding update on our progress in Battle of Dazar’alor, we’re 9/9 in Normal (i.e. farm status), and 3/9 in Heroic (with more to come tonight). I jump into Overwatch occasionally, but not with any regularity. I don’t have any of the other Blizzard games installed anymore. I jump on the Switch every [… Click to Continue …]
