This site ran on ‘’ for the last ten years. My son has reached of age and has claimed his domain.

This was my second wordpress site and the theme is a hack of the original kubrick theme, done in 2006! I’m redesigning this site, but it suffers from a ‘cobbler’s kids have no shoes’ syndrome.

My main website is ‘‘. Go there or to my LinkedIn profile to catch up with me.

Blow smoke up one’s ass, literally!

The tobacco enema was used to infuse tobacco smoke into a patient’s rectum for various medical purposes, primarily the resuscitation of drowning victims. A rectal tube inserted into the anus was connected to a fumigator and bellows that forced the smoke towards the rectum. The warmth of the smoke was thought to promote respiration, but doubts about the credibility of tobacco enemas lead to the popular phrase “blow smoke up one’s ass.”

Fly away with me!
