Dark Donuts

Friends,
Scientists have been known to use the word “dark” to sound smart when they’re really talking about phenomena they can’t properly explain (give something a name and it appears a lot less mysterious).
·       Dark Matter is used to describe missing stuff we believe must be there to produce the requisite gravity needed to hold galaxies together.
·       Dark Energy is used as a crutch to explain the force driving the Universe’s inexplicable accelerating expansion.
·       Dark Flow is the observed drift of thousands of galaxies, being pulled towards what might be a super-massive object outside the observable universe (perhaps a sibling universe?), somewhere between the constellations Centaurus and Vela.
If scientists can do this, why not common folk like you and I? Here are a few I can think of:
·       Dark Homework is that assignment you swear you turned-in yet somehow your teacher has no record of having received.
·       In the world of telecommunications, Dark Fiber must be an idealized transport method customers believe will deliver unfathomable capacity at ridiculously low prices –the golden unicorn of network access methods –pardon my Dark Humor.
·      Finally there are Dark Donuts which come from the Donut Bar – a place which doesn’t serve liquor but does have a nice selection of inebriatingly delicious pastries.
So satisfy that dark need for a sugar fix. You may not be able to explain it, but you know you want it.
Happy Friday!

BIrds of a Feather

Friends, The early bird catches the worm, however, as the sun rises I’d much rather have a Denver omelet than a diet of worms . Ready to fly the coop, my ducks all in a row, I ponder one more time whether a bird in hand is truly worth two in the bush. Egged-on by my quest to tuck away a nest egg, I’ve decided to change industries and hope that, like the phoenix, my career will also rise from the ashes of change. After all, I’m no spring chicken –my crow’s feet and gray bely my age – however, I have to trust my judgment and believe you can’t catch this old bird with chaff (whether or not folks think me an odd bird for my actions). And so I shall attempt to soar like an eagle, aware that counting my chickens before they hatch would be ill-advised. As I learn to talk turkey in the language of cybersecurity, I will endeavor not to hide my head in the sand, choosing instead to be like a duck – calm on the surface and paddle like hell underneath! And while my excessive use of bird-inspired

Love and Marriage go together like a Horse and... Donut!

Friends, My family gained a new daughter last week. As I welcome the freshly minted Mrs. González, I wish the new couple a lasting, loving, happy and tranquil marriage. I am also reminded of a special delivery I received at the wedding. A few weeks ago, my niece/goddaughter held a “go fund me” and offered to stitch something for the donors. I, of corse, asked for a horse jumping through a donut. The completed masterpiece depicting this unlikely combo now has a special place in my office, and brings a smile to my face every time I see it. That said, I may forgo the obligatory donut today and opt for some of the leftover cake we still have at the house. Happy Friday!   New addition to the Family Horse through donut  with the artist   Horse through donut at it’s new home shelf P.S. The donut wall in action.

Life is Smiling!

Friends, You know life is good when even dinner smiles at you. That said, digging into smiley soup can pose a dilemma. At a conscious level, you know it’s just inert food. Inanimate, unsentient, incapable of emotion or feeling. Still, those cute cross eyed egg eyes and that little pepper smile are saying ”I’m your friend” —and friends don’t eat friends. Naming your anthropomorphic dish only makes matters worse. Eventually, being the monster I am, hunger wins. Mmmm, delicious! (Sorry, Sally). Speaking of which, maybe skip the smiley faces on that next dozen donuts. Happy Friday! ;-)
