Bobby Mackey’s, Haunted?

2016 creepy unexplainedPublished July 31, 2016 at 8:56 pm No Comments

I can’t speak from first hand experience because I didn’t get to actually go in… they were closed today. I did stop long enough to get a couple of pictures and drive around the building though.

UPS “Expedited” ??? NOT!

2016 rantPublished July 22, 2016 at 8:01 pm No Comments

You’d think that “Expedited” means Fast!, Right? Well you’d be WRONG if your dealing with UPS. UPS site claims that the USPS has the package, but the USPS site appears to show that they haven’t received it. I’d call UPS about this issue if I knew they wouldn’t transfer me to an operator who I

Maybe this rain will cool things down

2016 random_ramblings rantPublished July 22, 2016 at 3:01 pm 1 Comment

Actually it has cooled things off a little… Hopefully it doesn’t cause the temperature to climb even higher than what it was before the rain. In any event… It sure feels better out here.

Spent some time in Winchester yesterday

And as usual I stopped by the Big Boy for a Double Mushroom and Swiss… Hope you enjoy the pictures half as much as I enjoyed the meal 🙂

25$ Laptop (Plus Parts & Labor!)

2016 Computers and Technology random_ramblingsPublished July 20, 2016 at 3:43 pm 34 Comments

So at this point I have some cash invested in what appears to be a promising little laptop. It had what I believed to be minor issues… a sticking key (new keyboard) battery didn’t hold charge (new battery on the way)… slow and sluggish (uninstalled some useless bloatware)… Runs real HOT! (probably due to running

Project Day!

2016 Computers and TechnologyPublished July 1, 2016 at 2:21 pm 9 Comments

Posting from my secret hideaway workshop today. I think I have found the time to finally get to play with these old toys. One of these need only a small memory upgrade. The other.. I’m not sure about. It was given to me with “issues”. Will try and update my progress tonight.

I need some new toys!

Here’s a few pictures of some old gear: Just give me a stack of old digital junk… and I’ll turn it into good usable gear.. stuff that actually works… So yeah.. I’m hinting.. Don’t throw it away.. give it to me.. I might be able to make it work. Things that I can’t really get

Old Site Restored…

2016 Computers and TechnologyPublished June 5, 2016 at 2:14 pm No Comments

It wasn’t so much that I was afraid to load the old database upon this “new” server, because that didn’t worry me too much. The thing that kept the site in limbo for so long was the lack of ability to access my old database files. Even though I’m not sure why recovering the whole

Whiteout!

2016 random_ramblingsPublished February 15, 2016 at 1:14 am No Comments

Started out on a long trip and ended up making my own road most of the way. Sorry that I couldn’t get a picture of the actual whiteout, but I was too busy trying to see the road. The between pictures will have to do.

Strange Photo

2016 creepy unexplainedPublished February 14, 2016 at 2:45 am No Comments

I took this photo on Friday, April 13, 2001 at 6 :03 PM. This photo was taken of the Morgan County bridge on KY Highway 519 from a local boat ramp. I cannot explain why the photo turned out this way, but I see what appear to be shadowy faces. For years people kept pointing

caving story

2016 creepyPublished February 14, 2016 at 1:40 am No Comments

As some of you may already know, rock climbing and cave exploration have always been among my most favorite past-times. I rarely have the time for such adventures these days, but want to share this story with you.

How times keep changing…

I could run a website from an android tablet or a smartphone. The technology is there and I am watching it, but android technology is still evolving at a very rapid pace…
