As I’ve mentioned in the past, I’m in the process of setting up an alternate blog site, thanks to the growing threat of censorship and/or deletion on Big Tech blogging sites and facilities. To that end, the contents of this blog (including all the archives) are scheduled to be backed up and copied over… Continue reading No blog updates until Thursday
Some weeks ago the theme on the mobile template for my blog changed from light to dark. Numerous readers complained that made it more difficult to read text, particularly highlighted items. I think I figured out how to change it back to a light background. If you’re using a mobile device, does that work… Continue reading Mobile theme has changed from dark to light. What do you prefer?
Miss D. and I will be on the road for a few days, doing research for a forthcoming book. As a result, blogging will be sparse; if I can fit in an article now and again, I will, but I don’t expect to do much of that. We’ll have a friend house-sit our cats,… Continue reading A short road trip
I’m sure many of my readers have seen comments on other blogs about how difficult some are finding it to post new articles. Some claim that Google is improving tweaking fiddling with its Blogger architecture, trying to improve it. The Silicon Graybeard wrote a lengthy article about it recently, to which I refer you… Continue reading Technical difficulties with Blogger?
Friends, it’s becoming more and more clear that Big Tech is censoring as many “free speech” outlets as it can. In response, several bloggers have already moved their blogs to Web sites and servers they own or control, or to service providers who are more independent. David Codrea did so with his “The War… Continue reading Trying to gauge reader support
Following earlier warnings from many sources about looming food shortages and the need to keep reserves in case of emergency, I answered a number of reader questions last week. They keep coming, so here are a few more answers. One reader asked about simple staple foods that keep for a long time, are nutritious,… Continue reading More reader questions answered about emergency food reserves
Miss D. and I will be on the road this weekend, traveling to and from the wedding of friends a few hundred miles away. I probably won’t have time to blog, so don’t expect to see the usual Saturday Snippet and/or Sunday Morning Music posts over the next two days. Regular blogging will resume (God… Continue reading On the road again
I’ve spent the weekend with a group of other North Texas Troublemakers in Amarillo, doing research for future books and collaborating on marketing and advertising efforts. Tomorrow (Monday) we’ll be heading for home, traveling via Wellington in the Panhandle to visit the coffee shop of well-known cowboy chef Kent Rollins. Sadly, having just got… Continue reading Road trip today. Blogging will resume tomorrow.
I’ve tried hard to post to this blog every day, and mostly multiple times every day, since I started it on January 1, 2008. I’ve mostly succeeded, apart from a couple of spells in hospital or while traveling. However, that’s meant I’ve had less time to do other needful things, and less time to… Continue reading Heads up: This blog will be on vacation between Christmas and New Year
Several readers, over the years, have suggested that I should put together a “greatest hits” sort of book based on this blog: a collection of the articles that have attracted the greatest interest (based on the number of times each has been directly accessed), or which I think are the most important, or that… Continue reading Are you interested in a “collected works” Bayou Renaissance Man book?
