Today we get the pleasure of dealing with an eight hour power outage, courtesy of my old employer SDG&E. I know, the grid needs maintenance, but a planned eight hour outage is a big one. Causes all kinds of problems, like what’s in the refrigerator. Couldn’t the work have been done in two four hour sessions on different days? I’ll drag the generator out and see if it starts, but that’s not how I wanted to spend my day.
Having said that, it’s probably a good day to take the laptop somewhere for a long brunch. Power, wifi, food…not a bad deal.
One day before the election, Herschel Walker outdoes himself in showing he’s not qualified to serve. In an NBC interview, he talks about serving in “The House”. Someone should tell him that he’s running for the Senate. I agree with Digby, Republicans should be embarrassed for running this guy.
Kentucky men’s hoops finally got a quality win this past weekend, though we had to go to London for it. For all I care, they can play the whole season in Europe if we get good wins. Next up is Yale, back in the USA.
I was really sorry to read this article about the imminent demise of Appharvest. Eastern KY needs a break, and the Appharvest concept is a good one. But someone forgot that making a profit is important to staying in business.
There’s a lot of stuff I’d like to read in the NY Times, Forbes, The Economist, and the Washington Post, but I get blocked by paywalls. I suppose I should go ahead and pay the subscriptions. Most of the ad-supported sites I can get to are horrendous to read. The pages jerk around as ads try to render themselves.
