    Back in the early days of computers, you would flowchart your program, write all of the machine instruction on numbered forms, then send the forms to keypunch, where they would punch the cards. You would get back a collated stack of cards, each one having 25 rows of 80 characters (this pattern was intentionally carried over to the DOS CRT screen, by the way). At any rate, you now have an ordered stack of punch cards containing your program, and if you dropped your stack and the cards got out of order, your program was toast.
    At any rate, I get this mental image of someone tripping while carrying a stack of old Bloom County comics to the scanner.

    No doubt. On the internet I found a Zombie Santa tree ornament for a friend who’s a “Walking Dead” fan.

    2 out of 3 of my dogs absolutely live for car rides. The 3rd will put up with one in order to get to the woods.

    The Burroughs version of Tarzan used correct grammar. That whole “Me Tarzan” bit was Hollywood.

    I just bought a Zombie Santa tree ornament for a coworker who’s really into “The Walking Dead”.

    I think we’re a bit out of sequence. Plus, I’m pretty sure Opus has 2 left feet.

    From Bethlehem PA by any chance?

    I’m with you. The trick is not to overcook it, which most people do.

    Tucked away in a box in the closet I have a glass Christmas ball that my great-grandparents brought over from the old country back in 1888. I can’t imagine the tree they hung it on, because it’s about 7 inches in diameter and weighs a ton. The metal part at the top is solid brass.

    A litter box next to the kitchen table is fairly disgusting.
