2014 is almost over, which means it is time for a year in review post. It was quite a year. Highlights were numerous, extravagant, and highlighted. There was so much good. Since we have too busy to pay attention to you guys, and your accomplishments, we decided to talk about ours. We hope that is ok.
Doctor Dawg combined a color copier, a hot glue gun (loaded with a large box of crayons), the reactor from a nuclear submarine and a microwave to invent the worlds first three dimensional copier. Don't ask how he got the reactor from a nuclear sub, it is a long story of bartering, bickering, bullying and larceny, and he will go on and on, until you wonder if a talking, scientist dog with several advanced degrees is such a good idea. Be comfortable with the knowledge that Eastern Europe is Craig's List for unusual shopping needs.
Of course, the fact that he invented it just to save on pizza costs for company parties doesn't really detract from the accomplishment. Copied pizzas are pretty tasty, if a little waxy, but the problem is not really the taste, it is the scale. When he pressed copy it not only reproduced the pizza it also copied the guy grabbing a soft drink from the refrigerator.
Having two Bobs from building maintenance is alright, but not really in the budget, and his wife and children are a little upset. On the plus side, despite the obvious difference in the pizza, the Bobs are identical, and even his mom can't tell the difference.
Thank goodness we are so close to the years end, and we can add another Bob to payroll. It will be a little tight, but Doctor Dawg has a plan to cut back on the drink budget, using a fire extinguisher, an aerosol can, a garden hose, and an almost new (mostly clean) cement mixer.
Of course, that was not the best thing that happened last year, but it was noteworthy. At least for Bob. And his family. And our budget. Don't worry, though, there are still some days left in this fading year, and we will have other accomplishments to share, boastfully, maybe.

Another Post About Us.
There is not much to say, but, for those who find any offense, please remember these are only stories, jokes, and have no relation to reality. Kind of like life.
I like life, and hope it lasts a long time, but it does require some explanation, that is why these blogs exist. To help people navigate times and events that make no sense.
Here are a few places you can find a few things.
The Original Life Explained. Where it all started, a little rambling and a lot of nothing important.
Life Explains The End Views on humanity's race to self extinction. I hope I am wrong.
Life Explains Smiles Because everybody likes it when you smile.
Life Explains Aging Getting older is not always easier, but it is worth the effort. And a few small things can make it much more pleasant.
Life Explains Traveling and Commuting Mostly commuting. Driving bugs me and working bugs me so driving to work is the ultimate insult of modern life, and I like to complain.
Life Explained Explores History. The real problem with history is there is so much of it. It is all over the place. But, if you take the time to look at the small pieces it is fascinating.
Life Explains Music Music is a universal language. I like guitar based rock and roll, but there is a little bit of a lot here.
