Gray Cat takes a Sunday siesta — through Google Glass

Blast from a Sunday past: on September 15, 2013, Gray Cat took advantage of a quiet Sunday afternoon to catch forty winks.

Watch and learn from a master.

Your name in lights (or the internet equivalent)


First-time commenters: Welcome, campers!

FunFact: You can instantly see your name or handle on my homepage above the fold at the top of the Comments section.

It's not gonna get any better than that.

Lagniappe: it might remain there for 15 minutes, 15 hours, or 15 days, depending on how Typepad's behaving.

Free, the way we like it.

Just since the beginning of May of this year, 10 (ten) new readers have seen their names festooned up top.

How about a shout-out to:

FunFact #2: Almost all websites have either eliminated comments or instituted a review/filtering system before allowing them to appear.

Not me: every comment gets posted immediately (unless Typepad's on the fritz); I never see comments till after they're up.

And I never, ever, delete them, no matter how hateful or nasty.

Typepad occasionally does, though, resulting in hissy fits from commenters who thought I trashed their input:

Never gonna happen.

Because that's how we roll.

Mini-Funnels — Where were these when my amphetamine dealer roommate needed them at UCLA in 1967?


He would sit at his built-in desk opposite my side of our little Rieber Hall dorm room all night long, fueled by his own wares, his lamp directed down at his scales, bags, tweezers, labels, calculator, and ledger, measuring and weighing and bagging his wares.

Me, I had zero interest, though he offered me whatever I wanted free, 100% pure.

Diff'rent strokes.

But I digress.

From the funnel website:

Funnel Set Sized Just Right for Smaller Tasks


Ordinary funnels just won't fit the necks of bottles, spice jars, or other containers with narrow openings.

You’ll be glad to have these handy helpers when it's time to fill containers with seasonings, oil, vinegar, salad dressing, and more.


Set of 3 nesting stainless steel funnels with handles.
