Well, here we are... Tuesday. Sunday I had over 10,000 steps in, yesterday? Only 5465. I wanted yesterday to be a rest day. This is how training works... a lot of steps one day, recovery stage, and then another day with a lot of steps. Today there are chores planed. I need to go to PetSmart as well as grocery shopping (I'm running low on paper products, and I thought I'd stock up, just in case). The idea occurred to me that since I purchased that portable heating, I might as well try using it while I'm on the treadmill where there are a lot less layers of clothing. Wearing it to work proved to be very ineffective.
Yesterday, almost to my horror, I subscribed to SiriusXM, but only for a year. $4.99 + taxes and royalties = $5.62 a month. After that, however... well... I don't want to spend nearly $17 a month when I only listen to one station. That is not what I call getting enough bang for my bucks.
Yesterday was Indigenous People's Day. Today is Columbus Day. For those who need to be reminded, Columbus did not discover America, however he did prove to the scholars of his day the reason you could move beyond the horizon was because the Earth was round. That was revolutionary thinking back then, so recognize him for that fact and only that fact.
As for Indigenous People's Day? There is a group called the Icollective, a group of indigenous chefs, working to bring indigenous recipes to the world. As someone who toys with words, I appreciate their punniness. Give them a look see, you might find something interesting.

I'm sure there were a lot of Conservative voices complaining, they always do when someone else is getting recognized. They whine so much.
And what about Abbott, Texas' lackey governor issuing an Executive Order outlying mask and vaccine mandates? For those who don't know, this is fascism masquerading as democracy. Those stupid MAGAs think this represents freedom, when in actuality what we are seeing is a malignant attempt to control. Rules are enacted creating illegalities. Like their absurdly unconstitutional abortion law, they are attempting to vilify that majority group who believes differently. They will continue until we vote these losers out of office.
