This blog is a place where my family and friends can go to check on my current condition. If I am posting, they know that I am alive! and coherent enough to string a few ideas together. For myself, designing a unique website and creating blog posts is a fun, free, and creative hobby.

Why do male dogs run around peeing prolifically everywhere and then take five minutes sniffing out the perfect spot to poop? Here are some silly dog pictures.
Isn’t this beautiful? Nothing I can create or contrive surpasses a simple moonlit night. Even the nighttime colors tonight are beautiful. I see that taking photographs can be a form of worship. I am alive, but I’ve been sick since the day after Thanksgiving. A wicked case of laryngitis, which I’ve never had problems with… Continue reading It is a full moon tonight
Merry Happy! Here are four virtual presents for you from Summersday at Current Conditions. First a short boring update about how I am doing, then (1) High quality video and jpeg from the “I’m not dead yet!” Monty Python sketch, (2) A unabashed silly cat and dog video (cats stealing dog beds), (3) a less known Christmas video speculating “What would happen if animals were round,” and finally — hot off the press — (4) a mini Sherlock Holmes episode from the creators. Enjoy!
