Something to look forward to

found on facebook

April 24, 2021

My Doubt Meter is pinging loudly.

This ad, and iterations of it, keeps showing up under different "merchants". There's a similar one that features a photo of a warehouse full of guitars. And the reasons for the low prices range from covid to stories like "my tenant couldn't pay the rent, so he paid me off in merchandise." Can't help wondering if that legendary Nigerian prince has found a new gig . . .

"Oops" in the offing?

April 22, 2021

One senator had the courage to say "No" to McConnell. ONE.

ONE Republican defied him to vote for Gupta.
Which speaks volumes about the remaining Republican senators.

What the . . . ?

Was watching the "Band of Brothers" marathon on History Channel. As one episode ended it proceeded to the next, but it came up in Spanish. Commercials are in English, all other channels are in English. It's just the one program on History.

Any ideas what's going on with that?

Update: After all afternoon in Spanish, it's now back to English. Still no explanation.
