Gray Matter


Gray MatterGray matter refers to certain parts of the human anatomy. It’s present in the brain, brain stem and cerebellum, and throughout the spinal cord.

A walnut, when cracked open, looks a lot like the top view of a human brain. It contains omega-3 fatty acids, which help support brain functions.

Below are the latest posts featuring ideas that have leaked from my own gray matter at one time or another.

His Old Man Is a Rolling Stone

RT Cunningham | July 26, 2021 (UTC) | Humor

There are more jokes on the internet than you can imagine. Not every one of them bears repeating. This joke about the frog’s old man being a Rolling Stone is worth repeating at least once. I think I’ve told a more abbreviated version of it more times than I should have.

Memories of Two Islands in Hawaii, Some Newer Than Others

RT Cunningham | July 25, 2021 (UTC) | Locations

Although I have years of history with the islands of Hawaii, I’m definitely not Hawaiian. I can’t even be considered a “local”. I’m just an average haole from the mainland.

Biblical Observations - The Creation and the Land of Nod

RT Cunningham | July 25, 2021 (UTC) | Religion

I question the stories of the bible, not the intentions behind them. Oral history preceded written history for an undetermined amount of time. Story tellers tend to embellish and exaggerate. Why should the stories in the bible be any different from any other stories?

Movies From the 1930s That I Can Remember

RT Cunningham | July 24, 2021 (UTC) | Entertainment

At my age (60+), you have to assume I’ve watched a lot of movies. Back in the 1960s and 1970s, when I was young, I saw most of them on broadcast television. Movies from the 1930s were still be broadcast regularly back then, and I’m sharing a list of those that I can remember seeing at least once.

My Raspberry Pi 400 is Ready to Ship

RT Cunningham | July 23, 2021 (UTC) | Computers

This is the last time I’m going to mention my Raspberry Pi 400 while I’m still in the United States. I may or may not mention it when I finally get back to the Philippines, whenever that may be. Anyway, I took the time to set it up, so the only thing I have to do when I get to my house in Olongapo is to put it all together and turn it on.

Biblical Observations - An Introduction

RT Cunningham | July 19, 2021 (UTC) | Religion

Before I can publish my biblical observations, concerning any subject, I have to explain my point of view. My beliefs won’t be identical to yours, no matter what I tell you. Am I a Jew or a Christian? I’m definitely not a Jew, and being a Christian depends entirely on your definition of such.

My Raspberry Pi 400 Is On Its Way to Me in Maryland

RT Cunningham | July 17, 2021 (UTC) | Computers

I didn’t intend to follow up my previous post about the Raspberry Pi 400 computer kit I intended to order, along with other items, this soon. Things have changed, and I think I need to mention them, since I decided to go ahead and order shortly after I wrote that post.

Buying a Raspberry Pi 400 Computer Kit and Some Things to Go With It

RT Cunningham | July 13, 2021 (UTC) | Computers

I initially wrote about the Raspberry Pi 400 computer back in November, before the first one was even available to consumers. The only information I had available at the time were the pre-order reviews and what was on the website itself. Armed with up-to-date information, I’m getting ready to buy a single kit, to ship ahead of me to the Philippines.

The Pandemic Won’t Let Me Go Home to the Philippines

RT Cunningham | July 12, 2021 (UTC) | Travel

I don’t want to sound like I’m whining, but I can’t help myself. The pandemic and the restrictions put into place by the country of the Philippines keeps me from going home. In 2006, I consciously decided to make the Philippines my home, never expecting to return to the United States for any great length of time. Things didn’t turn out that way, obviously.

My Gray Matter Blog, One Year Later

RT Cunningham | July 10, 2021 (UTC) | Blogging

I started this blog on this date, exactly one year ago, in 2020. One year later, but as of yesterday, I’ve posted or reposted (from old blogs) 365 blog entries, one for each day of the year. That wasn’t planned. In fact, I didn’t even know how many posts there were until I counted them.
