Conceived above a saloon, delivered into this world by a masked man identified by his heavily sedated mother as Captain Video, raised by a kindly West Virginian woman, a mild-mannered former reporter with modest delusions of grandeur and no tolerance of idiots and the intellectually dishonest.

Historic photo

Well, to me, anyway. Granddaughter Leanna's first official school photo. She is a member of the class of 2021. I was class of 1971. Good Lord. Fifty years.

That's it. I'm going to bed.

I'm sorry. This is just wrong. Dogs and cats, living together, mass hysteria wrong.

Well, they did issue a winter weather advisory...

... but it doesn't take effect until noon, which sort of makes one wonder if things are going to get worse.

What you should see is beautiful downtown Fayette City, the train tracks, a barge heading up the Mon, and Allenport on the other side of the river.

No worries, though. The Thanksgiving shopping is mostly done, so we have lots of food. And if the power goes out, we'll just climb into bed with the seven shelties and two cats. I'm just glad I work from home and don't need to go anywhere today...

Quotes of the day

As I grow older, I pay less attention to what men say. I just watch what they do.

The way to become rich is to put all your eggs in one basket and then watch that basket.

All honor's wounds are self-inflicted.

The first man gets the oyster, the second man gets the shell.

Do not look for approval except for the consciousness of doing your best.

Do your duty and a little more and the future will take care of itself.

There is no class so pitiably wretched as that which possesses money and nothing else.

-Andrew Carnegie (November 25, 1835 - August 11, 1919)

So there.  
The e-mail address is now something other than saga. used to be until December, 2007 when the domain name broker Trout Zimmer made an offer I couldn't refuse. Giving up and adopting created a significant problem, however. I had acquired the domain name in 1993, and had since that time used as my sole e-mail address. How to let people know that was no longer but rather which is longer than and more letters to type than and somehow less aesthetically pleasing than but actually just as functional as I sent e-mails from the address to just about everybody I knew who had used in the past decade and a half but noticed that some people just didn't seem to get the word about the change. So it occurred to me that if I were generate some literate, valid text in which was repeated numerous times and posted it on a bunch of different pages- say, a blog indexed by Google- that someone looking for would notice this paragraph repeated in hundreds of locations, would read it, and figure out that no longer is the they thought it was. That's the theory, anyway. Ok, I'm done. Move along. Nothing to see here...
