Windows 10


Microsoft offered me a free upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10, so I accepted. It took more than two hours to download and install it.

Now I have to learn how to use it.

Bloody Damned


 I ran across the following photo
while wafting around online . . .

I wonder if it has been Photoshopped.

That's Entertainment?


It seems I will never learn that it is folly to download (and read) those 99-cent books touted by Amazon... and that without fail each of them was written by a rank beginner who has yet to learn the fundamentals of composition, editing, and even the basics of thinking, for that matter. But I cannot bring myself to pay the $15 to $17 and more they are currently asking for works of popular authors, such as Stephen King, et al.


Would you watch a crude and boorish TV show that captures celebrities at indelicate instants or in embarrassing situations, such as during the unintentional but loudly explosive emission of a great quantity of gas?

Would I?

Hell yes!

Would you allow your children to watch such a show?

Hell yes! I always loved hearing my kids laugh.

Now For The News


While listening to a couple of old political hacks interacting with a young, attractive, long-legged, highly made-up young female news anchor, I heard one of the aging pundits proclaim about the American people: "They are not dangerously mad or demonstrably angry, it;s just that they suffer from an everlasting angst."

Of course I had no idea what that statement meant, if anything, and so, being the nosy- parker I am -- always -- I went online to inform and to further educate myself.

At one dictionary, here is what I found:

a feeling of deep anxiety or dread, typically an unfocused one about the human condition or the state of the world in general.
a feeling of persistent worry about something trivial, as in, "my hair causes me angst".

Wikipedia says: "Angst means fear or anxiety."

After a short time of deep reflection, I decided that the conversation wasn't worth much to me, so I sat back down in my comfortable lounge chair, stretched out, relaxed with my feet up, and just continued to enjoy the sight of a brightly and tightly sheathed young female body with long  shapely, naked legs prominently displayed who smiled at me so often and so femininely fetchingly.

Politics Sucks


Bloviate [blo'-vee-ayt]

To use ornate and incomprehensible prose.
In American English, a Midwestern word for "to talk aimlessly and boastingly; to indulge in 'high falutin'" talk.

The O'Reilly Factor


Today's Word For The Day on Bill OReilly's show was chuffiness.  According to the show's staff, the definition is:

Chuffiness: (Noun) The quality of being chuffy. Chuffy - fat or puffed out in the cheeks; rough; clownish; surly.

I wonder what picture that word brings to mind.

According to the simple definition is:

churlish; surly.
