Odd Lots


  1. Tom R. says:

    We are not below freezing down here, but after the warmest winter in quite a while and going from severe drought to flood warnings in just a couple of months we are far below average for this time of year.

    I suspect that when our “blackberry winter” ends the temperatures will jump into the 90’s and all rain will stop. It seems like the weather has become a binary state system.

    1. We could still use some water up here, and the forecast shows rain for the next three days. It was a long, cold, dry winter until March, after which it got wetter but even longer. Mid-May is a long time to be waiting out the snow.

    A problem with social network websites is they do not know when someone dies. We’ve lost too many friends these past few years and their pages still generate traffic.

    LinkedIn still sends me things about another friend, one you may have known or known about (Kevin Weeks) who is no longer with us.

    There was an article a few years back about how to handle the ins and outs of someone’s death and how to notify the virtual friend base. That is all well and good for those with families but what about those of us who only have a spouse or may be single.

    1. Oh boy. I hadn’t known about Kevin Weeks. He wrote a lot of really good stuff for PC Techniques in the first half of the ’90s. After that he stopped writing computer articles and starting writing about cooking, which I think is how he’ll be remembered.

      And he was only 58.
