Good Morning. And how are we all doing today? I had a good night's sleep so I'm up and raring to go. Now ain't that nice?
The temps are supposed to be nice today so there's some yardwork on the menu. And peaches need to be picked. I'm going to have to use a small ladder, since the larger ones are at the top of the tree.
And, of course, there is always the ubiquitous laundry.
Yesterday, I signed back up with Rouvy, only for 6 months. I wasn't about to plunk down $144 for an entire year. I think that's a lot of buckarinos for an app I may only be using sporadically. While I'm not cheap or desperately frugal, I do know the value of a dollar.
This year there is going to be something different during the Tour de France. This will be the first year I don't have a subscription to NBC Sports Gold. This is not of my own choosing. Nope. NBC Sports Gold is now part of the Peacock Network, NBC's streaming service. In their uninfinite wisdom, NBC has chosen not to partner with Amazon. They've chose to go with Apple, and as most of you know, I am not an Applehead. There is a work-around, should I choose to take it. I can subscribe through my X-box which I believe is rather odd... almost a conundrum. You see, Microsoft and Apple are competitors in so many markets except for phones. Strange bedfellows for NBC.
And, as most of you know, I use song lyrics in my books, call it an idiosyncrasy if you like. Here's the first song to have lines in the next book, The Body in Repose. It's originally by Little Mix.
And the Southern Baptists voted in a moderate as president! Now isn't that a surprise? I'm not going to say there's hope for them, because in the end they're still a conservative hate group bent on taking control of America.
Finally, four months into Biden's administration, the Republicans have chosen not to put their masks back on... you know, the masks they ripped off when Trump got elected. Selfish, and self-centered, and greedy. They are the party of no incarnate. The only way to prove God is not on their side is to vote them out of existence. 2022 is approaching. This is not the time to sit back and relax. We need to knock them back so hard, and when they're down, we need to start kicking. That's the only way they learn.
