I just discovered you can play Breakout by entering "atari breakout" in Google Images. That was my first video game. I could play it for hours (I still have the stand-alone Breakout box that Atari sold, in some box somewhere).

If don't post for a few weeks, that's what I'll be doing.

The bartender didn't get it

A couple of nights ago I went to a bar and the bartender was wearing a t-shirt that said "Drinking Consultants Since 1998." I asked her what consultants taste like.

3,000 posts!

I see that yesterday's was my 3,000th post. I don't really write much of anything any more, but people do seem to keep reading. So I'll keep posting my headlines and license plates and anything else that catches my fancy but doesn't take me very much time. Thanks for sticking around.

I'm back

I was in such a rush leaving I didn't get a chance to post a vacation (part 2) notice. I was in Las Vegas for the Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekender, and stayed a few more days for some more relaxed fun.

Oh, Canada!

I have had a counter by country on my blog since September, 2011. Today Canada surpassed 1,000 different visitors--the first foreign country to reach this number.

At the rate it's going, the United Kingdom will be next, maybe early in 2016.

Hey NY area former musicians! You know who you are. You haven't played that instrument since high school, and it's just gathering dust. Now you can help a kid, get a tax deduction, and free up some closet space. Win, win, win!
