Friday we had a company party, it was great. It was not a traditional party, it was an interactive, learning thing. It really was a blast. So, I devoted a whole edition of my company newsletter to the event.
I publish the newsletter independently with no supervision, freedom of the press and all that. Besides, nobody else has the time or inclination, so I asked for and was given the job of newsletter publisher.
Since it doesn't pay, and nobody really cares, or probably reads the rag I can publish whenever the urge strikes.
Recently, I upgraded to Microsoft Publisher. I used to use Word, which worked but not very well. It was a lot of "oops, dangit, how did that happen." sort of publishing.
I have decided, though, that I like having a newsletter, now that I have Publisher. And Life Explained is going to enter the newspaper world.
Here is the first edition. Ok, this is actually just the company letter with most references and pictures removed to avoid irritating my coworkers or employers, any more than I already have, anyway.
Life Explained, the Newsletter

Life Explained Newsletter Edition.
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.
