The Humanity

This is what the site of the Hindenberg disaster looks like these days. With just a simple plaque immortalizing the victims of the terrible accident. It’s on a military base, so it doesn’t get many visitors these days.  I stopped to say a few Aves for thee, lads.  Godspeed...

Saint Brigid’s Moneggstery

With the world losing its collective mind, the wife has decided that one thing she will never run short of is eggs. We already had a trio of the little layers, but decided to add a few more ladies to the flock. After a bit of research, I settled...

Another Saint CoronaChan Miracle

Happy Taxman Cometh Day! Looking for a bright silver lining to the plague cloud of imbalanced bodily humours that our friends in China shared with the world? You can find one at a big box store whose name rhymes with Shome Repo. While bopping around running work related and...
