Welcome to Tattoo Vampire’s Bar, Grill and Flophouse. Thanks for the visit. You’re going to find left-leaning posts here for the most part because I’m a proud liberal. Tender Trump fans might not like this blog.

I don’t despise conservatives… except those who willingly align themselves with Donald Trump, who is the worst president of the last 100 years or so. Don’t even try to convince me otherwise.

I post about things other than politics on occasion, so hopefully I’ll make you laugh once in a while, or give you something you genuinely find interesting or informative. I’m interested in pretty much anything to do with science, technology, or people and society.

My original blog resides here. It’s hosted on Google’s Blogger platform, which I am leaving behind after all these years. Google loves our data just a little too much — which, by the way, is why this avowed lover of all things Android switched to an iPhone and iPad this past spring.
