This blog is done!

31 12 2010

Or to quote Douglas Adams “Goodbye and thanks for all the  fish!”

This blog is done. What? You’re going to miss it? Both of you? Really? Well, don’t despair, this blog is done … being posted at WordPress. My hosts for the past nine months and 57 posts have been great, but I wanted something more. I wanted to be able to use Java and wordpress.com strips that out at publication time. Also, although the stats page is a great beginning it isn’t as great as Googles Analytics, and Analytics requires me to have access to my source code that WordPress.com doesn’t allow.

So I’ve packed up my stuff and moved. I went to Kelly’s web page and they gave me a corner office with a huge desk and a credenza. I piled all my stuff on the credenza so I can’t actually see what it looks like, some day I’ll put all that junk away and describe the thing to you. I’m kinda curious myself, should have looked when I first got here, eh?

And the move is complete, you can go to the new site and have a look around. All the content that’s here has been packed up and schlepped over there by diligent movers. Posts and even comments, anything that was part of this site that I didn’t want to take with me has been left sitting in boxes in corners.

If you subscribe to this page, I’ll try to set up your subscription at the new page. If I can’t, I’ll let you know and you can do it yourself (unless you were looking for an excuse to opt out of this service).

So that’s it, I’m outta here. I’ll probably come back to pick up some stuff. But, in the words of  Jacob Marley “Look to see me no more.”. At least look to see me here no more, look to see me at the new

Happy New Year!




Software for ADHD? Wow. Who knew!

29 12 2010

Well, okay, it’s not actually software so much as add-ons for your browser. These add-ons work within your browser to restrict access to web sites, web sites that you waste time on. Unfortunately, they’re only for browsers, nothing to stop you from playing games that stand alone on your system or wandering through past emails and endlessly forwarding jokes and chain mail to undeserving victims … but, I digress.

Mural Man, new years resolve!

27 12 2010

There is something about this time of year that makes me drift towards the philosophical. I was minding my own business the other day, writing about ADHD and focus, sipping coffee and listening to the radio with half an ear. As I listened in that distant way, I misheard a song. Can’t say what that song was but I noted what I’d misheard. “Mural Man …”. I knew it was wrong, but I let my mind wander with it. Where did it go …? My mind came up with this life analogy.

Merry Christmas

24 12 2010

A young man exploring the piano in my living room this morning has taken me back to a memory of the hall in the village where I grew up. The young man in question takes no lessons and will probably not be a pianist, but he has a knack for making the piano sound okay. He knows little about music but his sense of rhythm is okay. His count and measure are quirky though. And he is loud. Read the rest of this entry »





Me and Bing and Bowie … just trying to “drum up” a little Christmas spirit …

22 12 2010

You know, me and Bing and Bowie are tight, the best of friends. Bing Crosby and David Bowie don’t know that, but it’s true. I never really understood why ’til this Christmas season. And now, you poor things, I’m going to explain it to you.

This is a link to youtube, the video may not be viewable here.

10 Tips for a Happy ADHD Christmas

20 12 2010

“ADHD is a context driven disorder.”

Okay, we’ve all heard this, but what does it really mean? And once we understand what it means, how do we use that knowledge to our advantage? Read the rest of this entry »





ADHD for Christmas (or “Taylor talks about that Gift issue, maybe …”)

14 12 2010

Imagine it’s Christmas morning and you’re a child with a dream. That dream is to have the fastest coolest sled ever, maybe the new XK900 or whatever. You wake up and hit the floor running. The blankets are barely settling back down on your bed when you hit the bottom of the stairs. And there, under the tree, is the brightest, shiniest, most amazingly disappointing violin you’ve ever seen. Read the rest of this entry »
