Looks to be a bit warmer today. Maybe upper 70s for a high. A touch of breeze so it should be comfy. The ribs won't go on until about 2 PM so a bit later dinner tonight.
Just got the placement info for my little student (1st grader) who is a super genius. The Stanford program wants to put him at the 7th grade level to start. Seems about right. It will be a blast working with him! I may be doing calculus by the end of next year. Been a while since I did that stuff.
It's early day two of the MLB draft, and I'm wondering if the Tigers will ever go outside their little scouting circle and select position players outside of their little box. For example, the Indians hitters all look the same when they move up the chain; they usually have nice short choppy swings, and have a great deal of power hitters available. The Twins are similar, in that their system is loaded with super athletes who hit for a high average, and play ball to their organizational philosophy.
So I guess I'll have to sit around and think really interesting thoughts.
And so it goes . . .
One of my goals for this Summer is to reread some Vonnegut. Breakfast of Champions andCat's Cradle are on my list.
Got the oil in the car changed this AM. 12,000 miles. The Caliber seems to be a very nice car. Was incredible in the snow this year. Since the Dodge dealer is near Costco jumped in there and picked up some Ribeyes for dinner. Will have one of those with a baked Larry for dinner while watching the game.
Got the BlackBoard
Wow, talk about a crazy couple of weeks. I will have to keep this short because I have to run again in another half hour or less. The Whitecaps treated the season ticket holders to a Tiger game in Chicago last night. Yeah, I witnessed Bonderman's loss, but we were able to listen to the first game win on the way to Chicago--scrambling to find the game on various radio stations along the way. we were rather frustrated when it was tied 4-4, bases loaded and Brandon Inge at the plate--and lost that
