It’s been said of cable TV, “A thousand channels and 90% of it is crap.” The same is now true of streaming services.

My wife and I wanted to watch something tonight. Amazon had seemingly millions of cop, detective, and period dramas. They were all variations on the same theme. Go over to Netflix where the auto-play video is supremely annoying and the UI was designed by a high school student with ADD. More millions of cop and detective shows. And Britain in the 1800’s.

I have nothing against cop or period dramas but I question why we’re supplied with millions of them. The answer: They’re mindless entertainment, and the more that exist the longer we’ll stay on the site and click, click, click.

Except I won’t.


Up until one month ago, if you told me I would buy my next car from a domestic car company, I would have laughed at you.

If you told me that my next car would be a Chevy, I would have ROFLMAO.

We are now the proud owners of a Chevy Bolt EV. We decided to go full electric because that’s the future. No halfway hybrid measures for us!

Our BMW 328i is 22 years old with 186,000 miles. Boy there’s a lot of new technology to learn!

This is a great car. IMHO, the technology (especially energy technology) is more advanced than any other EV in its class. Highly recommended!


My wife and I held a housewarming yesterday in our house of two+ months. So many friends came and it was a fantastic time!

But we’re now agonizing over gifts without tags and we can’t recall their givers! We greeted, hugged, here this is for you!, start talking about the house, then another friend arrives and we context switch and our mental note about the gift doesn’t make it into the NVRAM.

So the afternoon is now a blur of memories. We look at some of the plants, wine glasses, and wine and can’t remember who to thank.

In an oblique way, this is a good problem to have: So many friends wishing you joy that you can’t remember them all!
