Thank you to those who have already jumped through the hoops to register as a "Follower" (I prefer "Reader" or "Friend of the Show" but Blogspot didn't ask me). The rest of you have a few more weeks to procrastinate and beg for extra credit to raise your failing grade right before it's too late. You know who you are!
I was in the middle of learning how to transfer a couple hundred email addresses from Feedburner to Mail Chimp last week when my early 21st century Dell Latitude collapsed/fizzled/croaked right there beneath my fingers. I had most of my stuff backed up, but not all (did you hear that, procrastinators?). Now I have a new Dell Inspiron that was surprisingly inexpensive. I hope it lasts until I can no longer think up or type complete sentences. The fact that I didn't spend much money on this thing may or may not reflect my thinking that another twenty years of blogging may or may not be in the cards.
I am excited about the NBA Playoffs, mainly to see a slight comeback of the big men in the league, but mostly just to see the new young talent starting to take over. There is no substutute for experience, though. I think there are four or five teams who can win.
Today I took a 5-mile walking tour of the "neighborhood" i.e. the farming/ranching land next to which I live. The morning marine layer that is usual for this time of year burned off pretty early for a change so a sunny walk it was. Nothing very crazy in terms of exercise - just rolling hills and straightaways - but it was nice to get out before the games got started in earnest and get home in time for the hoops fun. Here are a few highlights.
