New Year, New Plan

Wow. What an election, right? You’re probably either shocked, scared, shocked, terrified, or just shocked at the outcome. And now the 2017 political session is looming, and we’re all holding our communal breath to wait to see what happens. For the site here, I haven’t posted since August, and need to pick it up, because there’s […]

The Re-Re-Re-Re-Reboot

What used to be.

I haven’t blogged here since last October. I’ve learned my lesson…This time. The last redesign took me forever, and I taught myself a lot about how WordPress works (that’s the back end software that drives this site), which was a great thing, and kind of fun. I had a vision for what I wanted my […]

What Am I Doing?

I’m embarrassed to say that the last I posted was on May 27th…That Lincoln review below was the topic. And since? Bupkus. Zilch. Nada. Not even through the momentous events of the last few weeks, which are so brilliantly documented in those postage stamp-sized photos to the right. I have spared you nary a drop of […]

Updates

Time for the weekly updates which should have aired here Sunday or Monday nights but didn’t because other things took precedence. In diet news, I lost .8 pounds this past week, which makes for a 2.2 pound total. Not nearly what I wanted, since I could probably lose that much just by shedding body hair, […]

C-C-C-C-Changes

Ever feel like you’ve just walked into a room and all of the furniture has been moved around since the last time you were there? Yep. That’s going on here. This page you’re looking at is the first WordPress theme that I’ve designed myself. With the help of some software, some hand-coding (okay, not a […]

Addition Notes

Things are expanding and changing around here, as promised. I’ve dropped a couple of posts into a new Tumblr blog which you can get to by using my own vanity address (I just like the sound of having something to which the vanity tag can be attached…). I’ll have a link from the homepage at […]

Change is A’ Comin’

It’s one of the great mysteries in my life that I don’t find some things earlier. Like settings on the website control panel that allows me to easily create spiffy, easy-to-find subdomains. If that sentence sounded like Greek or some other similarly foreign language, then hang on. The translation is coming. First, some background to […]

Linky!

I’ve just made a change that makes the site slightly easier to get to…But if you’ve got it bookmarked, then it probably doesn’t make a difference. If you feel the urge, though, you can now go to http://theeclecticmix.lathropworld.com to get to the blog. You’re welcome. See you tomorrow.

The Spam Locker

I need a laugh right now. I’ve got a cold–but not enough of a cold to stay home and curl up in the fetal position and ingest hot tea and chicken soup all day–but it’s enough of a cold where my head is protesting the concept of thought, and my sinuses are making my teeth […]

The Best Laid Plans

You may have noticed it by now. Or maybe not–it’s been a subtle change, but one I’m hoping you recognize as time goes on.   I’m trying to make things a bit easier on me to post blog entries. I was disappointed in the fact that I couldn’t come up with much last year (I […]
