And so it begins…

Maybe it’s just an excuse for an already planned layoff… but I suspect we’ll see more of this in the future, just rarely so explicit.

I wonder if the jobs lost will be as assiduously subtracted from “jobs created or saved” as the additions were.  If so, that 22 will probably grow by an order of magnitude and imagination if there’ll eve be a dent made in the rather… aggressive 4 million.

How do you know when you’ve become a curmudgeon?

When you find yourself using the phrase, “oh, and another thing…”  Usually followed with something along the lines of, “those darn kids these days!”

I plan on using this space to post a variety of things: a carefully sequestered series of political rants and observations, my digital artwork (currently a hobby…), things about blacksmithing (a hobby I aspire to acquire), my writing efforts (fiction and fact), and whatever else strikes me.

My OTHER blog,, is/was focused on my wartime exploits and observations, but it has fallen into disuse and disrepair… I may bring over some of my pithier rants… or I may leave them entombed where a number of people regularly checked on them (a very humbling thing, really).
