“Dampen the cloth” the instructions read. Just dampen the cloth? I really didn’t understand why one wouldn’t get the rag soaking wet. After all, it was waterproof. But I did anyway.

My S-phone … depending on its mood was either Smart or Stupid … needed a good cleaning. Unlike other HHMDs (Hand Held Mobile Device), this one got constant use. My recent uncontrollable addiction to cherry jam was evident by the smears on the device.

I had to keep this one for a long time. It was a special S-phone from the future. Having perfected my limited-span time-machine, I had ventured 15 years ahead getting a really good deal on it. I was forced to wait the years out to get a new one. Ya see, my time-machine broke. Or rather, it got stuck. The machine slipped a freegle-gook, and sent me back to the present, but it stayed in 2027. Heck, it would be 15 years ‘till I could even be where it was (is?) to fix it.

My inherent shakiness getting worse due to low blood sugar … I had resolved to kick the cherry jam habit … I trembled as I slowly cleaned it. There! Done! A thing of beauty, the gleaming non-color radiated back its promise of being smart for a few hours before it fucked with me and became stupid once more.

Boy, one of the first things I would do when I caught up to the future would be to have Verizsprinton replace it.

Still Here Now…

I am still setting this blog up…Networked Blogs still needs some confirmations that I am the author of this. Or install Widget to bypass confirmations. Have the coding, but it does not show up on the site. Maybe now?


Locked in my office, headphones on, so I don’t interfere with something very spiritual in the Living Room. What to do, what to do?

Well, after a meeting where somebody shared that they had been spending the last few days in a retro-kind of mood, I figured, “Yeah, why not? Really test the new computer.” And test it I did.

YouTube is a great source for Woodstock footage. Santana, Canned Heat, Ten Years After, Joe Cocker, etal, cranked up. And I really like the combined channels; clip after clip after clip. Sure, there are a few non-Woodstock slipped in. Very cool is some foreign footage of Woodstock. Combine the tunes with some Wikipedia searches, and I learn a lot.

Canned Heat-Going Up the Country  …  Canned Heat-Woodstock Boogie  …  Ten Years After-I’m Going Home  …

I am one of those who admits to not being at Woodstock, despite being less than 6 hours away. However there are several peeps in my life who were there; wife, friend Joel (who covered it as a budding journalist), and a few others I trust (there is that saying, “If you remember Woodstock, you weren’t there.”)

My Life without Clots rocks…

Explaining it all…

I have taken a willing plunge, and recommitted to writing, editing, and most of all, loving myself…laughing at life’s twist and turns. I am exploring ways to spread me around, stray outside the box, and still be viewed as I know what the true deal is.

Hey, and this is also a test bed for posting pics and docs while I learn html and the limits of what WP can and can’t do. Such as, will this allow uploads of PDFs, or regular documents, or, or, or…do I need to migrate to another site-embedded app (like Joomla). Meanwhile, I will keep trying to figure out Blue Griffon and Amaya on my own.

Standby. I promise that I won’t throw anybody from the train, not even on the steepest learning curves.

Here are some links to past LWCs…
Record Searchlight (where it all started)

Meanwhile, my Life without Clots keeps moving forward…
