The Inconsequential

Fascinating for the Wee Blogger & pals — anybody else, maybe not so much.

It's my take or commentary on unsubstantial matters. It's a learning vehicle and test bed for web design tools and ideas. So the look and style of the site changes from time to time. Don't expect any sex, religion or politics in the content.

The personal blog content helps me keep in touch with friends, col­leagues and fam­ily spread around three con­tin­ents too. So I kill two birds with one stone.

Tardy Delivery of Good Wishes for 2018

At the time of writing this, Daylight Saving begins in less than three weeks. Nevertheless, we wish you all the best and hope that the balance of the year treats you well.

I kicked last year off by bidding an excruciating but joyful farewell to a large kidney stone – so glad to see that visitor go. Other than that our 2017 wasn’t too bad at all.


In 2017 circumstances dictated that we traded in our two cars for new ones.

Karen enjoyed hood-down commutes in her VW Beetle Convertible. But the car was subject to the VW diesel buy back order that the US Gov slapped on the company for cheating with the emissions control. It’s an ill wind that blows nobody any good, and this funded an upgrade to an Audi A3 convertible for her.

At the same time we organized Karen’s car, we ordered a new Audi Q7 from the factory in Slovakia. We wanted a build and combination of features that didn’t seem to exist in any of the stock Q7 vehicles. Procuring it that way kept the price down and spared us expensive features we had no use for. It’s eventual arrival at the dealership more or less coincided with the end of the lease of the SUV we had.


We were pleased to get back to our Fall and Christmas holiday routine in 2017 after the dearth of holidays in 2016.

Happy New Year 2016

We spent Christmas and New Year in Isle of Palms. It's a city on the barrier island of the same name that flanks Charleston Bay. Warmer winter days and evenings caused a thick mist to hang around the coast much of the time but it was great place for the Vizslas.
