Yesterday was a pretty good day, even though I had to go to work. I climbed onboard my bike after what has been a long, long time. Sure, I only rode 5.22 miles, but that's a really good start. You have no idea how happy I was to just get my leg over the saddle. And before the ride, I walked over 2 miles on the treadmill. Exercise works.
As for my job? I did get a measure for hard wood flooring. Hardwood flooring is an asset to your house. Hardwood flooring is also more difficult to maintain if you have kids and pets because they do things that scratch. Most people don't understand that the stain used by manufacturers is proprietary, which means fixing scratches can be extremely difficult. After buying a similar colored stain, home owners also need to think about matching the sheen since stain does not have a shine. This family had kids. Young kids. So I gently reminded them that hardwood flooring is not waterproof, nor is it scratch resistant.
Biggie got off the bed around 0230 to go sit at the top of the stairs. Thinking he had to go outside, I followed. Nope. He wasn't budging. He just sat there. So, I went downstairs and got a biscuit, thinking he might need a bit of an incentive. After I gave him the biscuit, he looked at me for a few seconds, and then went back to bed. What he really wanted, I guess, was a midnight snack.
Quite often, when someone covers another musician's song, their own personal spin jars with the original intent of the composer / lyricist. Now and then, the cover artist comes up with something far better. Here's an example of a Wang Chung song that was very popular a number of years ago. This is so much better than the original. Oh, and it was used in a video game. This thing would have made a fortune if they had released it.
I saw this morning at 60% of Republicans believe the election was stolen. At first glance, that seems like a really high figure, until you realize that the Republican Party is the minority party, making up between 29% and 30% of the electorate. This means that approximately 18% of all voters believe Trump's lies. That doesn't mean this terrible losers can't do damage, they can, it's just not as insurmountable as some want to believe. And if you think they're going to change their minds, forget that. No matter how desperately they want, this group will never make it to the dance floor. They will never Wang Chung Tonight.
