OTHER COOL THINGS is the blog page where I go off topic. In other words, this is a page where I ramble about a wide variety of subjects which have nothing to do with the Cross House restoration or Emporia.
OTHER COOL THINGS is where I might suggest a great new restaurant. Or a movie I enjoyed, or book. Or a favored blog.
OTHER COOL THINGS may — fasten your seat belt — open discussions about dangerous subjects such politics or religion.
OTHER COOL THINGS will, in short, be a page where I ramble about anything which captures my special attention. Like, perhaps, a nice moment I had with my favorite cat Gilda.
I love comments, so please do not hesitate to toss your two cents in, even if you disagree with me.
My blog posts are below. Enjoy!
I have had four calls. The first caller only spoke Spanish. The next two spoke some broken English. In a town where 1/3 of the population is Mexican this should not be surprising. So, I am going to add another spec list written in Spanish. Caller #4 lives a block away and wants a…Continue Reading
Got two calls today. One caller spoke only Spanish. As I could offer no reply, they hung up. Another caller wanted to know the price. Now, in order to get my phone number they had to stop by the car, walk over to it, and take down (or photograph) the posted phone number. Adjacent…Continue Reading

In addition, I installed a tow hitch, and a NOVERO audio system. I have poured almost $4800 into getting…Continue Reading
I have an Epson printer. It takes #126 ink cartridges. But, I purchased a new printer. So, I now have no use for TEN #126 Epson ink cartridges, never used and still in their original packaging. Can you use them? If so, please let me know. I’ll ship them to you for free.Continue Reading
Recently I posted the above image. In the lower center can be seen a green bowl, sitting 8-feet above the ground, and adjacent to my cat fence, for squirrels and other small creatures to have some water during the recent DRY heat wave, and…this is vital…safe from my cats. Tonight, I’m highly pleased to…Continue Reading
Still hot, here. No rain. This afternoon I was in my fenced cat yard and saw a squirrel atop the fence, laying flat, head down, and with its paws hanging down the sides of the 8-foot-high fence. It looked dead. Oh dear. Then I noted it was just above the fish pond. And I thought:…Continue Reading
Across the nation, Republicans are doing everything they can to demonize the LGBTQ community. My community. By way of contrast, President Biden today announced that he will host the largest-ever White House Pride Month celebration. The difference between the two parties is stark.
