Schvieks! Yesterday in the 40s with light rain. Last night in the 30s with winds gusting to 45...

Today going down to the 20s, with wind still gusting.

Radio said wind chill below 0.

Listening to an interview with Spike Lee on Fresh Air...

Lotsa good stuff, but I almost fell off the couch when he talked about several times the studio suits brought some black guys from the mailroom to sit in the meeting. He's sure they never knew he was on to them, but he played the game.

Ended the interview with "I trust Joe and my sister from Howard to do the right thing."

Anybody know what is this banana fly that invaded my kitchen?

No pix-- can't deal with a macro setup right now.

But, what happened is I bought some bananas that were in a plastic bag. When I got them home and opened the bag, tiny flies flew out. Really tiny-- not much bigger than the period at the end of this sentence. I found them taking up residence in the kitchen garbage bag and managed to trap most of them and toss them out.

There were hundreds of them, more than were originally in the banana bag, which leads me to think they have breeding cycle of maybe minutes. An hour at most. Like tribbles, they are born pregnant.

This is not the first time this has happened. Anybody have any idea what this bug is?

Just got an email from Desantis bragging about being the first governor to fight Silicon Valley...

and, of course, begging for money. (Somehow getting on these rightwing email lists brings the strangest things.)

He is upset about Twitter banning Trump and fellow travelers.

Friends,

I am the #1 enemy of Silicon Valley because I wonít let the Big Tech cartel walk all over conservatives without punching back twice as hard.

These social media platforms have played an increasingly decisive role in our elections and have negatively impacted Americans who dissent from their agenda. Thatís why Iím taking action and becoming the first Republican governor to crack down on Big Tech, with legislation that will take on the monopoly of communications platforms that have sought to monitor and control us.

With that being said, I canít do this alone → We need to fight back.

The Transparency in Technology Act will fight back against these far-left CEOs by letting users opt-out of their shady post-promoting, shadow-banning algorithms, imposing fines when they suspend political candidates like they did with Donald Trump, and much more.



There is more, but you get the drift.

For a change of pace-- here's a technical look at Lady Gaga's inauguration arrangement...

Mixed meter, chord tricks, and other good stuff. Not Whitney Houston, but damn good. Gaga's an extraordinary musician
with a deep love and respect for the music.

Silly question. I've been told not to use the hot water from the sink in cooking. And recipes all...

seem to start with a pot of cold water .

So, why not use the water that's already hot? It came in through the same pipes and only made a quick detour through the water heater.
