Especially boxers, so I hear, were just huddling in caves waiting for us to invent couches and central heating. I heard about RBG’s passing. I’m never happy when someone dies. That said, I think the conventional wisdom is that they’re going to rush an appointment through. Once it’s done, there’s nothing on that score that can energize the Dems, so really, Trump has nothing to lose by doing it. It’s kinda short notice, but… well… there you are.

Happy cool(ish) rainy Sunday, EverGerbillyBody! I’m sorry about your progress troubles, Fatwa. I’m glad the Board is currently cool, and I hope everything works out. I think the winds that brought the rains brought a hint of smoke on it first. The first part of the day definitely had a *fire light* filter. The earthquake didn’t wake me up either. 😉 Other than that, I start week five at the auto shop tomorrow, and it’s still good -- no Dread Pirate Roberts comments since that first week. The hours do fly by, and the people who come in are for… Read more »
