    Fantastic for music discovery.

  • Glad the Super Bowl is over.

    Now the Chiefs can keep talking about all the rings they are going to win.

    And Tom Brady and keep winning them.

    At least that is settled

  • Parents...

    So I got my parents an internet connected photo-frame for Christmas. Amazingly, they set up all by themselves and have even loaded a few photos into it. The point was for my wife and I to be able to upload photos directly to them and the frame through the internet. So on the phone last night I asked for the serial number so I could identify the frame and connect to it remotely. My Dad says, “let me go get it.” After a few minutes he comes back:.

    Him: “I got it. Do you have something handy to write this down?”

    Me: “Ready to go, Dad”

    Him: “7… 2…. 3…. 4”.

    Me: <sigh>

    Mother: “That cant be it.”

    Him: “Well, it was the number that it gave me. It told me to write it down

    Mother: “That cant be it.”

    Him: “It was the number that it gave me. It gave me that number. It told me tow write it down!”

    Me: <sigh>

    Just a day in a life of the pandemic …

    “If you wish to keep slaves, you must have all kinds of guards. The cheapest way to have guards is to have the slaves pay taxes to finance their own guards. To fool the slaves, you tell them that they are not slaves and that they have Freedom. You tell them they need Law and Order to protect them against bad slaves. Then you tell them to elect a Government. Give them Freedom to vote and they will vote for their own guards and pay their salary. They will then believe they are Free persons. Then give them money to earn, count and spend and they will be too busy to notice the slavery they are in”.

    - Alexander Warbucks

  • Word of the Day: Establishment

    People shouldn’t be afraid of their government. Governments should be afraid of their people.

    Better than Season 1 in my opinion. Really solid. Looking forward to Season 3. No spoilers please.

  • Word of the Day: Overcast

    It has been an unusual Winter in Florida. Very overcast. Dreary. Florida is known for its sun. But it is nowhere to be found lately.

    My daughter left for school today to finish up her senior year. She has been home for over a year. Last year in January we watched her get on a plane for China. One month in Beijing was all she got. COVID started and after a frantic week of so trying to get her out of China, she was home.

    It’s been wonderful to have her home. So if there was one gift from the pandemic that was unexpected, it’s extra time with her.

    My wife and I will miss her, but are ready to see what life has in store … for her and for us.

    We love her so much.

    Ran into one of these beauties in the mountain of Colorado. To be honest, I thought it was a hummingbird at first. Flew and looked like one. But the attennae gave it away when I got closer. Wonderful to watch. Hope to see more
