Went to one of the local county parks, which features wetlands and tree stands that sort of approximate the ecology of South Florida a hundred years ago.  B.D.  Before Development.

Enjoyable, because the dew point is unusually low this week.  Bad for containing brush fires, but good for being outside with low humidity.  But then the flies appeared.  I left when I realized I was getting more exercise flapping away the flies than I was getting from walking.

The following solicitation for reader input represents the hard-hitting, socially responsible journalism found at The Graun, and is one of the reasons I continue to read it every day:

"Have you injured yourself trying to eat a fruit or vegetable?"
They are having way too much fun with those avocados.

I don't always want to discuss religion; but when I do, I don't carry on that discussion on the El Tupé thread.

I saw that avocado piece; I eat so much I'm probably classed as "High Risk Vegetarian" 😂

I received an email from Amazon this morning touting its newest service, Amazon Key.  It will allow couriers and other service providers (eg, maids) access to customers' homes while the owner is away at work or wherever.  It requires a smart lock and Amazon Clound Cam.  Um, pass.

I saw that on TV this morning, they have access for 5 min ?? how long does it take to put a parcel onto the floor, they will not get access to my house.
Andante always true to his word has kicked the Marijuana soaked bot with its addled brain in to touch.

Last night, while channel surfing, and before landing on Alarma TV, which I so often do, I stopped briefly on the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show from Shanghai.  Why mention it?  Well, a singer I've never heard before was singing, and behind him, on piano, was Yundi Li.  A gig's a gig.

My girls started 'Tang Soo Do' this year and will shortly be taking their Yellow Belt test.

We started with hopes they could build some physical self confidence, but they really have been happily applying themselves.

Perhaps I will join them now that my 14 hour work days are finally over for a while.
