Humorous report on the state of my health
It's mostly good news from my exam at the doctor except maybe my eyesight. I forgot my reading glasses and there was tiny print on the questionnaire I filled out in the waiting room. Many of the questions dealt with sexuality. Safe sex, STDs and so forth. W...

How too much easy money in the wrong places can make income discrepancy worse
The world awash in money, but it doesn't necessarily help. I watched this very interesting documentary on You Tube from DW German TV. It lays much of the blame for income disparity on low interest rates and the flood of money mostly available to big time ...

If the male clerk looks cute and friendly, I'll stand in the longer line. I've got the time.
More and more automation in the grocery business. See this little video about Ocado's grocery technology. I'm not a Luddite, but one wonders what role humans will play in the future. This may sound outside the box, but as a customer, I sometimes find mysel...

Ideas about naked bike ride. Another fun year.
Here's a link to a few photos and mostly thoughts about riding in Bellingham's Naked Bike Ride for another year, 2018. Below is text from one of the images that I set to "adult" in Flickr just to be on the safe side. You can see the text here if you haven'...
