Speech to Text Software

We’ve been contemplating buying the Dragon NaturallySpeaking software so that The Missus can “write” content for our new project while holding a baby.  It would also be a lot easier for her to dictate everything–she’s an excellent speaker–as fast as she want to go.  I can go back in later and edit if needed, but […]

Two Hours Late

Driving in this morning I was listening to all the school and business closings.  Several of them were running “two hours late.”  Here in the South, the slightest bit of snow or ice is enough to cause schools to open either one hour late, two hours late, or close altogether.  Basically, those are the only […]


Bread and Milk

Wintery weather has been predicted to possibly occur somewhere in this vicinity. In the South, that means one thing–get thee to a grocery to buy all the bread and milk you can fit into the cart.  You’re going to be stuck in your house (after all, the snow piles reaching as high as two inches will keep […]

For a Few Reasons, This is Funny

Not the least of which is that Romney is stupid enough to be photographed so obviously proud of this sign. Way to go South Carolina! Between coke dealing campaign chairmen–oh wait, that was just for sharing for personal use, not for sale–and political activists who can’t even spell “momma”, you guys are really doing the […]

Live Blogging of the South Carolina Debate Part III

And combing his hair. Question 44: […]

Live Blogging of the South Carolina Debate Part II

After the break… Question 21:  That’s funny that Gilmore lumps those three together.  I like to do that with “Republicrats”.  He is doing a great job of not naming names.  And now he’s naming names.  This could get good. Question 22:  Guiliani is basically asking McCain to be his running mate.  I guess he’s been […]
