I HATE OUR NEW
One of the things I learned as a computer programmer was not to get
carried away with all of the bells and whistles. There are too many programmers
today that would install a computer on a claw hammer if someone in management gave
them a wink and a nod. One of the many features on our new oven was a feature
where a Jewish person could program the oven ahead of time so it would turn on
and off on the Sabbath in compliance with their datary laws. I’m not Jewish, so
none of this helps me in any form or fashion. It is just one of the useless
features that I have to work around in order to use the oven. The list seems
endless. All I want an oven to do is start as soon as I select the temperature
and cut off when I hit the stop button. No such luck with this appliance. You
would have to hit more keys than it would take to write a letter to grandma
explaining why your son decided to marry that snooty looking cheerleader from Auburn instead of a wholesome
looking girl from the University of Tennessee. I can handle complexity when I need to, but why muddy up the pond when
all you want to do is cook a biscuit.
To those of you who are visiting my website for the first time, welcome, and for those who are returning, it is good to have you back. I am currently finishing the second novel in the Sheriff Daniel Barrett series, and will have it on Amazon Kindle soon. I have two other series that you might like to read. One is the Abraham’s Bones series about terrorism in the Middle East, and the other is the Renegade series, an old-fashioned story of the old west. You can visit my website by clicking here. I hope you have time to read through the description of my novels while you are here.
