Okay, so this is my first entry using the new computer, something which is going to be a learning experience. I'm still adjusting the settings. Windows 11 is different. Personalization will be interesting. As with every other time I've upgraded, certain things transfer over easily. Other? Well, I'm used to having the NYT and Washington Post in task bar, so I've got to figure out how to do that. One of the good things that happened is old... really old pictures are now available. Pictures I'd forgotten about. Like this one, taken in 2004 of me standing next to a John Deere tractor. That's right! This is what I looked like 18 years ago! Son of a bitch!
I've also been told I have little tact, so if this offends you simply ride on.

Old is New Again
Other things were accomplished yesterday besides setting up the new computer: bread was baked, egg salad was made, my dahlias were planted. In fact, I didn't begin setting the new PC up until late afternoon.
And what about old Ronnie DeSantis trying to turn Florida into an authoritarian state? For those who didn't hear, Ronnie is making a very Putenesque move. Two voting districts that are heavily populated by black voters who vote heavily Democrat are going to be gerrymandered into non-exitance under a map he, himself is drawing up. I can only wonder how long it will be until he begins to poison his opponents because you know, he's not going to want anyone running against him. That old racism is again rearing its ugly head, and this time that evil goes by the name of DeSantis.
