OK, so you think you’re not tech-savvy enough?  Trust me, you’re good.  27% of respondents identified “gigabyte” as an insect commonly found in South America.

Which TV series from today will stand the test of time?  Assuming today means the last 10 years or so, The Sopranos, The Wire, The Shield, Sons of Anarchy, Mad Men, Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, and (at least season 1 of) True Detective.

10 mysteries of the Bible that we’ll never solve.  Well, John Prine solved one of them.


I finished the new Kent Haruf novel, Benediction, last night.  I really like rural literature and Kent is a great writer.  Having said that, this is an easy, but pretty shallow, read.  It’s an OK way to kill a few hours, but it’s not his best.

Free Up Bathroom Counter Space with Mounted Mason Jars.  This is really cool.  I’m going to do this, soon.

Living off the land, 1950’s style.
