Re: Random covid-19 observations

Yay Warren! Minnesota now has a "vaccine connector" where you can put in your information and it will let you know when you're eligible and contact you for short-notice opportunities in your area. Apparently Type 2 diabetes makes the cut for special high-risk conditions but not Type 1. Harrumph. I'm...

Re: It's not the size of the screen...

I voraciously read his books as a young'un; I remember enjoying them but not much else. Except that I recommend reading them while sitting next to a warm fire sipping something toasty because vast, vast parts of being a rural British vet involved going out in the middle of the night in the freezing ...

I doubt many of you will remember the Brit-com/drama that aired on PBS low these many years ago. There are also some books, I haven't read them.

"It's not the local government's responsibility to support you when they fail to provide the thing they aggressively, legally, prohibit you from getting from any other provider" is, um, an interesting take.

Re: How's the weather? v. 1.1

There was snow on the beach in freaking Galveston today. Sticking snow, not the kind that just melts on contact with the ground. Yep. It may be the first time in Texas history that all 254 counties, the entire state, was under a winter storm alert. And Texans do not know how to deal with snow. Some...

But I thought I liked watching people suffer!

Netflix rather randomly began streaming only the sixth season of the TV show "Alone," which drops 10 people into a survival situation (in this case, the Canadian Arctic in late autumn) with limited tools and offers a $500,000 prize to the last person to tap out (or get pulled for medical reasons but...

What is Trump even doing these days? With the caveat that I'm not the most informed person, it seems like after he got booted from Twitter he dropped off the face of the earth.
