  •  Good morning! (14+ / 0-)

    Sort of. It seems like some of my FB friends have had a rough one, so I'm lighting some candles for them (figurative, since the cats would knock over real ones, and it's wildfire season).

    The sun is creeping up over the hills and very soon will be shining in my eyes and blinding me. And there's a crow outside yelling at someone. I think it's gonna be hot again today, but I'm too lazy to check.

    I have one more day of hovers, and every.single.artist is a freaking landscape painter! I think I've used up all the cow and sheep puns, most of the tree puns... oh joy!

    I think my brother was the only one of us kids who had a transistor radio. That was right around when FM suddenly became a thing, and they kinda stopped being cool. I never had any portable device until...
    the iPod came along. My old one (that still barely works and is attached to my stereo most of the time) has 842 songs, and the new one only has about 904... I can't get some of my songs on it, and I need to figure out why. I have the cloud service, but the missing songs are a mix of iTunes downloads (ones that had been loaded to my old iPhone directly) and songs I got from friends.

    I like that lemon bundt cake (spell check never heard of bundt cake!) with the lemon glaze. And pound cake, which is surely called that because each bite adds a pound to your waistline.

    I've had products I like a lot, but I'd rot in hell before I did a commercial for anything.

    I can't think of anything a commercial led me to buy. I think it's because commercials try to make you want stuff you don't need. If I saw an ad that was for something new and clever that would solve problems I would like solved, I might go out and buy it (after reading customer reviews), but generally I am wary of any advertised products except the ones I already use. Actually, I have sworn on occasion to stop using something if they don't dump a particularly obnoxious ad campaign.

      am-fm. By the time I got it, I woyuldn't have bought anything am only. Still, in earlier times, even with junky times, there was always beisbol that needed to be attended to, especially during Koufax's heyday.
