  1. I don't know how this works, but the sky was red the first day, yellow the second, and just muddy gray after that. It still is.
  2. This isn't great art, but it does show how things look in wildfire country. The yellow cast is from a sunny day covered by smoke. The heat caused high winds, which knocked over a nearby oak tree, which then pulled down three telephone poles. Note the telephone pole stump in the middle, snapped in half by the force of the other poles pulling on the wires. That, in turn, caused sparks, which ignited the neighbor's field. Lucky for him, and for me, the fire fighters doused the blaze before it spread. I am standing on my property, and because of this wind damage I lost power and internet for 4 days.
  3. This makes sense to me. Not sure if it's supposed to.
  4. Its getting close to an early dinner time here on the west coast, so maybe it makes more sense after a couple glasses of wine.
  5. "This is our moment to make hope and history rhyme." I'm feeling really stupid here, but I don't get what that means. I've Googled the phrase and understand it's from an Irish poem, and that Biden likes to quote Irish poets. I guess I'm too literal. Anyone want to try explaining it to an old man? G_2, I would expect you to understand Irish poetry, because, well, you understand everything.
  6. Paredes today, Skubal tomorrow, and Mize Wednesday, I believe. Edit Sorry, superflous.
  7. I live in a vote by mail state (Oregon). A couple of years ago, I got called by the county clerks office saying my vote didn't count because my signature didn't match. My signature has deteriorated over the years, so I don't blame them for throwing it out. They told me how to transfer my signature from my drivers' license to my voter registration, which is I was able to do online. Problem solved, and by the way, someone is paying attention. Voter fraud my ***.
  8. I remember being slapped by two different teachers. Both of them quickly followed the slap with a hug. I was a mouthy kid. I'm not sure if my mother knew, but I think she would have backed the teachers. This was in a public school in Detroit.
  9. Playing the Anthem before sporting events is stupid, as many others have said. What is the percentage of players who are not American citizens? 30%? Is it unpatriotic for them to kneel?
  10. MLB gets together with Dolby Labs and comes up with an authentic crowd noise simulation.
  11. If I remember correctly, both Faedo and Skubal went on the 10 day IL list. Faedo is listed above as being assigned to the alternative site. What about Skubal?
  12. And why are pants plural. 2 legs, I suppose, but then, why is the word shirt singular when it has 2 arms. I can just see Andy Rooney with this.
