March Madness 3.21.24

Great come from behind win by Marquette. Western Kentucky leading at the half was not on my bingo card. They look like a second half team to most. Colorado will absolutely give them a game on Sunday. Hopefully they take that slow start and build from it. Rest of the bracket is looking like a different animal. UConn was strong. Auburn over rated and lost to Yale. Kentucky out to Oakland. SD State was the only decent upset pick while most of the favorites held on. Betting is looking bad as I throw one loser in with the 2 winners.

March Sadness 3.22.23

Not much left to say about the Marquette loss to Michigan State. Great season to get a #2 seed in the East Region. The path cleared out with Purdue losing early to the….. #16 FDU. Yes New Jersey basketball takes down the regions top seed. Maybe next year.

Kentucky Derby 5.9.21

Sometimes you get good hunches and don’t pull the trigger. Other times you make a mistake in the bets. I had the exacta right, but if I had only added the trifecta the third horse was in the mix. I will pay closer attention to the exotic bets next time.

Happy Mother’s Day! Glad to have the parents in town for a couple days. At some point they will be off and on the road. Going to enjoy the dinner with them.


Another work from home order. Glad our company has still remained in business. It can be tough out there for work. We had one employee leave last month and the new hire has started.

I did win the company NCAA office pool with Baylor defeating Gonzaga in the National Championship. I will take bragging rights for the year. Snow yesterday. We’ll see what the next few weeks bring.

Merry Christmas 12.22.20

I hope everyone has survived the lockdown/shutdown. It was a strange 2020. I’m looking forward to the New Year. I hope the resolutions are in order by then. I’ve sent a few cards in the mail. Hopefully everyone still gets the postal mail now. No big plans for the Holidays. Keeping a low profile in Colorado. Meanwhile I don’t believe the Governor or Mayor have any clue on how to run things. Can’t wait to vote them out of office. Have a safe and healthy break if you are off work the next week.

Still working from home

Still working from home. A change from the normal commute to the office across town. Now it is about 4 feet to the computer, a few commands, and it’s teleporting to work.

Some photos from outdoor trips. Some from Yellowstone.

New setup on Word Press

I finally got around to fixing the site where it will work rather than get a login error. So I have a little bit of file maintenance and house cleanup. Hopefully I can get up and running on the old stuff.

Whether it was a lack of time or effort, I figured out a simpler solution. You can fiddle around with the back end stuff you know little about or start over from scratch. So far so good.

Tips For Better Writing

Plan Your Content


If you’re considering adding a blog to your site, you’ll want to have a plan beforehand. Planning your blog will help your subject matter remain consistent over time. It’ll also help you determine whether or not there’s enough material to maintain a steady stream of posts.

One pitfall many new bloggers run into is starting a blog that isn’t posted to frequently enough. A shortage of recent posts can give your visitors a bad impression of your business. One may think “I wonder if they’re still in business” or “they may want to hire a writer.”

A blog, like any other customer facing aspect of your business, communicates your brand. If it isn’t maintained and given proper attention, people will notice. Post regularly and keep your content fresh. Give your audience a reason to visit often.
