Fave Five

On Sunday, I gave you the Top Twelve posts of this year, as decided for me by the blog's stats.  But of course, I need to have some control, beyond merely bucking the decimal convention.  So now: my favorite five posts of 2015 as decided by just me.

Owl Prowl  In which I take a nature walk with my all-time favorite trail guide, photographer, amateur ornithologist and pretty much everything else.

Not X.  Where X is anything that it now holds a social stigma to be: racist, homophobic, etc.  This is an easy way to understand what it means when you hear "I am not..." X.

End Manhood  I wrote a lot of SJW-ish rants this year, but this one actually got me called "SJW."  Also, something new I had not seen before, a "Guardianista."  So proud.

Why to Pray. Or something.  A commenter told me, Congratulations, you've re-discovered meditation.  Well, what if I did?

User, Customer, Client  How to calibrate your expectations of a technology provider.  This may save you some hair-pulling frustration.

Honorable mention goes to two series I was very pleased to complete: one, on the basics of Ingress (start here), and another on the Top Ten + One things religious people say to atheists that (a) drive us crazy and (b) don't have anything like the intended effect.  That series is indexed here.
