These are on an eclectic set of topics.  Most were written for my own amusement and the pleasure or annoyance of others.  Some were drafted to set down some things I have learned, but the task of bringing these to full status for formal publication seemed to be more than I wanted to face.  So they are included here to give them some sort of finality and to make them available in case anyone else is interested in them at all.  Besides, this way I can add to them or revise them when the humor strikes.  Don't say I didn't warn you.
