Space Rays

Saturday, January 3rd, 2015

I just read Jason Sheehan's review of A Sound of Thunder & Other Stories by Ray Bradbury. While reading, I suddenly realized that I've never seen Ray Bradbury (a fellow UU, by the way). Even so, anytime I hear Bradbury's name, I see a mental picture... of Ray Walston! It's ...

Sarcasm

Monday, January 3rd, 2011

Sarcasm (n.) - the ability to insult idiots without them realizing it. On the road, Karen & I listened to Kyril Bonfiglioli's book, Don't Point that Thing at Me. It's one of the most wit-filled books I've ever listened to, and is quite reminiscent of P.G. Wodehouse's (Jeeves) writing. The main ...

I've been eagerly anticipating the arrival of the new Canon SX10 IS camera, which won't be released until October. Meanwhile, one can pre-order it from several places, including Amazon. But, Amazon's amazing price is so far below Canon's suggested retail price that you have to click a special link to ...

Biding my tongue

Wednesday, July 9th, 2008

About 30 years ago, at a dinner with office and other acquaintances I heard someone say "butt naked" instead of "buck naked." I was too polite at the time to question it. And, since Al Gore had not yet invented the internets, I couldn't Google it to see if others ...

Also, those who lie frequently have the best intentions and think they are benefiting others. The source is Robert Feldman, who ...
