Indianapolis, Indiana–.. As this is written, I am in Indianapolis for the third week in a row.  They’ve got me picking up new trailers out here and ferrying them back to Rochester… an effort to upgrade the entire fleet of trailers that we have.  These that I’ve been bringing back are pretty good shape and […]

In an effort to be more involved with Bitsblog, I now have an app that allows me to post directly to the blog fom the phone. No laptop required.  Of course, I still need the time to post, but that should be less of a concern, now. I have been taking a number of pics […]

Harrisburg, PA– As this is written, I’m at the TA in Harrisburg. I was supposed to be over by Albany by this time, but an equipment failure…. (flat tire) lost me four hours of drive time.  When things go mostly right, it’s easy to bitch about the small stuff. When there’s a bigtime fail… well, […]

That’s changing, with the addition of an HP/Compaq NC6000 nI picked up used for $100. Everything’s there, everything works, including the wireless networking ability. It runs XP as does every other desktop […]

(Sigh) It’s become obvious that I’m unable to post regularly to the blog in the current set up work conditions, absent a laptop computer to put in the truck with me. So, until I get one,  you’ll need to bear with me for a while.

I know. it’s been a week or so since you’ve heard from me.  It’s shameful the way I’ve let my writing here slide. I plead guilty with this as an excuse… I managed to locate a new job that looks like it’ll keep my head above water. Another driving job, and a fairly local one […]

(Irving TX)– We’re in the shop for some minor repairs, andI ran into another driver who was nice enough to allow me to use his laptop. A few casual observations of the world around me: Eric Massa:Yeah, I said to Donna the moment his resignation started breaking  that there was some hint of scandal going on […]
