About Jim

I think this is the part where you are to write something clever and witty about yourself. I’m solidly locked in middle age and content with myself. I love to travel to see and experience new things, new foods and new drink. I also like to cook and bake mainly because I like to eat. And I found out that I’m pretty good at both. I'm not a professional blogger nor do I want to be. I'll leave that to others while I'll kick back and post whatever suddenly pops into my brain. I'm more spontaneous anyway. And the rest we’ll just kinda sorta figure out as we go along. Feel free to leave comments or even just to say "Hello". Find me at: https://mnghostt.wordpress.com.

Only an Engineer …


Would design a mouse with a charging port on the bottom so you couldn’t use it while it was recharging.  Dumb!  Steve Jobs would call it “a little box of garbage”,


Hmmmm …


I see WP is done with whatever issues that they were having.  It would be nice if they would publish a schedule so we knew what times to avoid trying to push posts on to our blogs.

Maybe it’s just me.

Random Thoughts for Tuesday Morning

Hmmm,  It looks like WP wants to give me some problems today with posting media.  That should be interesting for a while.

I pulled a Ritu last Friday afternoon and managed to poke my right eye.  It looks like I got into a fight with all of the red in it.  No worries.  My eye doc looked at it this morning and said we’re good to go for Thursday afternoon’s surgery.  I will be so glad to get that eye done sos they’re not fighting with one another.  My left eye has always my weak eye until today.  I was amazed what I read read on an eye chart with it.  I’m looking forward to both eyes being corrected and what I’ll be able to see later on.

Even Macs get malware and viruses.  Not many but they are out there.  So Windows users are not alone.

My old MacBook Pro that I bought back in 2011 keeps running and running.  It tried to download and install the latest IOS and then got itself all hung up.  I set it aside for a good part of the summer until this morning.  I just reinstalled High Sierra and it’s back to running as good as ever.  This is the primary reason I prefer Macs over PCs; Macs are like the Energizer Bunny.  They keep running and running and running …

Yanno, Big Boy likes potato chips (crisps).  Stupid cat will eat anything.

Monday Morning


I made strawberry jelly yesterday and as usual only half of the batch actually set right.  The other half I will have to recook if it doesn’t set by tomorrow.  I’m not worried about it.  I found out that making jelly is just like baking bread; it’s an art form that you have to learn with plenty of mistakes until you get it right.  And I have lots of strawberry syrup for waffles, pancakes and ice cream if it doesn’t work out like it should.  Nothing goes to waste.  In fact, I just may hold out a jar or two so I have some homemade strawberry syrup.
