  1. My worst performance yet on one of these. Connections Puzzle #106 🟩🟨🟨🟨 🟨🟩🟨🟨 🟩🟩🟨🟩 🟨🟨🟨🟨 🟪🟩🟩🟩
  2. I bought a few supermarket peaches yesterday. Very disappointing.
  3. for violations of the highest order: I made vegan chili last night with "impossible" beef. And 3 different kinds of beans. ...daughter is home for the weekend and living vegetarian for now, so i did this partly for her. But I do like the "impossible" stuff and was eager to try this anyway. I thought the chili came out great.
  4. I don't think Leibniz had a degree in astrophysics. Otherwise, yes, I think he could rip a mean guitar solo.
  5. Connections Puzzle #105 🟪🟪🟪🟪 🟦🟦🟦🟦 🟩🟩🟩🟩 🟨🟨🟨🟨
  6. Wasn't she in The Princess Bride?
  7. I hope others nearer the coast are faring well. Here it was a breezy day, 3/4" of rain. Our high temp was only 58.
  8. Well, for you the M was taken out of the running anyway.
  9. might you be able to elaborate on what that means? 20 miles on the road yesterday - given the forecast, that might be it for the weekend.
  10. Sorry for your loss... I know it's hard.
  11. I don't understand why this comes in double spaced. Doesn't happen with the laptop, just the phone. Connections Puzzle #104 🟦🟦🟦🟦 🟩🟩🟩🟩 🟨🟨🟨🟨 🟪🟪🟪🟪

  13. I was ready to enter BRUSH as guess 3, but changed my mind. Poor choice today.
  14. One fun number I'd like to see is how many Freihofer's chocolate chip cookies I've eaten in my lifetime. It's surely a big number. We usually end up getting a box at Stewart's if we're in the Albany area (but sadly I can't eat them anymore).
  15. We weren't a big snack cake family but when I was younger we would get Zingers from the Dolly Madison outlet store. There was also a thrift store from a local bakery chain called Freihofer's, which was much like Entenmann's (actually I think they eventually bought Freihofer's) - we'd occasionally stop and get a few things there, including if I'm not mistaken, Tastykake pies - this was in the late 80s before I'd ever set foot in Pennsylvania and knew nothing about Tastykake goodness.
  16. Saying "yikes" just once doesn't seem like enough.
  17. That boygenius album is really great. I've been hearing those three independently on the radio the last few years, but together they're something special.
  18. On a similar (yet tangent) note - I heard this Sturgill Simpson cover in the car this morning. When I first heard this I knew it sounded familiar, but it took me a while to figure out what it really was. Watching Napoleon Dynamite may have helped. His voice is definitely pretty twang-y so it might not be your thing.
  19. Thirty years ago today, Nirvana's In Utero was released. Up to this point I really was not a fan of them - I love listening to Nirvana now but back then I could do without it. (hard to avoid - in college at the time, the dorm's cinder block hallways were ringing with Nirvana and Pearl Jam all the time) This song was the beginning of a transition - so haunting, I remember exactly where I was the first time I heard it. (of course, it's a departure from the "Teen Spirit" sound)
  20. so glad to hear this! Good on you!
  21. for which those old blues musicians were for the most part not compensated. There's a fine line between "inspiration" and "ripping off" and they crossed it seemingly without a second thought. Just because they played it with an overdriven Les Paul, and tree trunks for drum sticks, doesn't make it a different song. _______________ One of the great paradoxes in this world is that falling in love is one of the best feelings in the world, but once you're in a loving relationship, you don't get to experience that again. I choose to listen to new music so I can at least fall in love with a new song. It does still happen.
