Stonehenge Standard Time

You may have noticed the Stonehenge Standard Time post circulating, right? So, what am I to do with the mini-stonehenge in my family’s ancient back yard in Stanton Drew, Somerset? It doesn’t get as many visitors, (except for wannabe druids), but how do the cows deal with daylight savings time? Are they sleep disturbed certain times of the year?

If Apple

If Apple made cars:

Could only drive on special roads

Would need authorization for each passenger

The engine wouldn’t be accessible

It wouldn’t have windows

It would require special fuel

It would cost 69% more than other cars

The main appeal would be conformity

Only celebrities would endorse them

If Microsoft

“If General Motors had developed technology like Microsoft, we would all be driving cars with the following characteristics:

  1. For no reason whatsoever, your car would crash twice a day.
  2. Every time they repainted the lines in the road, you would have to buy a new car.
  3. Occasionally your car would die on the freeway for no reason. You would have to pull over to the side of the road, close all of the windows, shut off the car, restart it, and reopen the windows before you could continue. For some reason, you would simply accept this.
  4. Occasionally, executing a maneuver such as a left turn would cause your car to shut down and refuse to restart, in which case you would have to reinstall the engine.
  5. Macintosh would make a car that was powered by the sun, was reliable, five times as fast and twice as easy to drive – but would run on only five percent of the roads.
  6. The oil, water temperature, and alternator warning lights would all be replaced by a single “General Protection Fault” warning light.
  7. The airbag system would ask “Are you sure?” before deploying.
  8. Occasionally, for no reason whatsoever, your car would lock you out and refuse to let you in until you simultaneously lifted the door handle, turned the key and grabbed hold of the radio antenna.
  9. Every time GM introduced a new car, car buyers would have to learn to drive all over again because none of the controls would operate in the same manner as the old car.
  10. You’d have to press the “Start” button to turn the engine off.

A SciFi Fantasy

I feel a new sci fi story coming on. It includes:

How Delightful!

The victim. Every juicy story needs a victim.

A twisted story arc. One of many!

The protagonist (or one of them).

The hero to the rescue! (There always must be a way out).

A plot twist. OOPS! It gave away the source of the story!

OK, in a galaxy far far away 30.000,000 years into humanity’s future there arises a arch-hero of ancient fame. Errrr … was that 30,000,000 years in humanity’s past? Whatever.

Fun with Hamsters.

Someone said this to Jerrod. I about spat out my coffee when I read it.
Saint Ken of the Ham really captures it well.

I wonder if there is a sigel for Saint Ken?

I swear, I am going to make a character in fantasy books modeled on Saint Ken of the Ham. He will be constructing giant submarines in the land of Garma to model the real one that happened in the “Great Soaping of Atlantis.”

Kitchen Fun.

A new toy. (the stainless steel rack).

My wife isn’t convinced, but she is tolerating me because it is Christmas season.

I do not like placing a pan in the sink because bacteria coat the bottom of the pan. These then spread all over the counter top and stove surfaces. The rack is much cleaner.

And it solves the mess with filling my french press as well.

The coffee cleanup is a breeze. The spillage goes into the sink so wipe down is very easy.

I have a burr grinder and french press like on Air Force One. If its good enough for the president its good enough for me.
The Mr Coffee Burr grinder failed so it was replaced with this fabulous Cuisinart.
