Individual Brownout

  July 20th started out just like any other day.  I was on the computer as usual, taking care of things.  Along about 3 pm I noticed the light bulb above me flickering.  I thought that the light bulb had finally bit the dust.  I was thinking...

Poppa, Pope and Popping

  So now we are about half way through the first month of 2015 because it is the 15th.  Today, for some reason, I decided to delete most of the backed up messages I have in my Google e-mail account.  I was really surprised at the amount of mes...

Zine Entry #64 – Brown Outs Galore

If you remember from the last post Zine Entry #63 – Improvements and Self Improvement I talked mostly about my losing weight for this coming year, brown outs and Christmas.  I thought there were a couple of good tidbits in there for people thi...

Zine Entry #43

  For awhile there I was feeling like I did not want to continue the blog.  I was getting so few comments I wasn’t sure if anyone was actually reading.  I didn’t have a program to tell me if anyone was either.  The last one I had...

My Bad, I Caused the Brown Out

Okay, I confess that it’s possible.  The brown out that we had this past Tuesday morning from 0625 to 0645 was probably my fault.  How could it possibly be my fault, you might be asking yourself?  Well it’s probably because I can’...

Market to Market

  We have had some interesting things happen around here recently.  I am a little late on reporting them, but not so late to make a difference.  I will start with the oldest notes in my notebook and just move up from there.  A couple of the t...

Life in Calbayog Goes On

  I suppose that the people in charge of the electricity around here must be sitting back in their big chairs and laughing at us consumers.  These past 2 weeks we have had 5 brownouts, 3 without warning.  We had a brownout on Monday just past...

Activities to do When You’re Blacked Out – Part 2

  Okay a quick recap of the last post.  We are having yet another scheduled 12 hour brown out, but this time I decided to do something besides sitting at home and waiting.  After a couple of other things, that I described in Part 1, I decided...

TitP Spam Free and Energized

  I will have to warn you from the beginning of this post that I am limited on the number of items I have in my notes.  I’ve only got 3 items, but I think, thankfully, at least 2 of them are ones that I can talk quite a bit about.  Howev...

Sweating the Philippines Scuttlebutt Facebook

  It sure has been raining a lot recently, but that not usually.  I like the rain, but afterwards when it gets hot outside, it seems to be more muggy than it was before the rain.  This new haircut I got keeps me cooler than I was before, but m...
