Another Quirky Smoking Bit

I remember in the mid-80′s when smoking was banned in shopping malls and when the smoking and non-smoking sections of a restaurant were divided by invisible lines.

The oil pressure warning light on my car has been flickering lately. After a day or two it began to bother me. I’ve had lots of tech support moments where people complain about something but then can’t describe the circumstances, so I began to pay attention to when it was happening so that I could […]

To Party City’s credit, their management decided to accommodate my request. My web form email was returned in short order, much to my surprise. After swapping a few emails with the District Manager for Maryland/Virginia, I was told that I’ve be able to return the pimp hat. I asked about the reasoning behind their restrictive […]

Reading about that lingering bar smoke aroma that emanates from our clothes, it reminded me that I left Bateman’s Friday evening, my clothes reeking of stale cigarette smoke. I was only in there for 30 minutes and I didn’t see a single person actively smoking. It was all residual. This is a sharp contrast to […]

Weekend Happenings

We loaded in for the Battle of the Bands on Thursday night but I neglected to bring my camera. I remembered it last night and took a few pictures which I was able to post after fighting with the computer for what seemed like an hour. Many of them are more tech-like, but there are […]
