Just think, for most of you this is the beginning of your work week. For me? This is my Hump Day.
Yesterday was moderately busy in the morning, but slow in the afternoon. Mother's Day, remember. One of those holidays blown way out of proportion by Hallmark as a way to increase their revenue. Not that I'm against having a day to recognize what mother's do, but now every business in the world sees it as a way of making $$$$. I can remember when a simple card would suffice. Those days are long gone.
Update on the angelfish eggs. One is left, the rest have all been... eaten. They began turning white, which indicates a fungus. The parent fish are supposed to eat them when this happens to keep the fungus from spreading. Mine pair didn't. At least not until about half of them were white. When I checked the tank this morning, there was a sole egg hanging on the side of the tank. Of course, I've been educating myself on breeding angelfish and one sentence gets repeated over and over again: it may take them several attempts to get the process right. Just like people, except, from my working in retail I can tell you that some never get it right.
Playing Assassin's Creed, Valhalla, I was surprised at the depiction of so many Roman ruins left in the UK circa 875 AD. For some reason, I had always thought there were nothing but wood structures and forts. I was wrong. They have uncovered the remains of Roman baths in York. London, itself, was large enough to have a colosseum made of brick and stone that could seat 6,000. This was not some tiny out of the way colony. Here's some more info at Historic UK.

I saw this on NBC news yesterday, Larry Hogan, on Meet the Press, has said the GOP has turned into a circular firing squad. Funny, eh? This is because over the years, the Republicans have been constantly backing themselves into a tighter and tighter corner. They celebrated Loser #45, without knowing he is nothing more than the shrieking voice of the minority. Their numbers decrease. They are aiming at every one who doesn't kiss his ass. Oh, well.
