    On occasion I walk past the White House on my way home. I like to extend my middle finger to the current resident as I stroll by. If anyone would like me to send their regards in the same way let me know. I should probably charge for doing so. I could clean up.

    I worked with a guy whose wife worked for the Capitol Hill police. He said that every few months she had an undercover assignment in Lafayette Park directly across from the White House. She would dress as a bag lady pushing a grocery cart of old rags around and mumbling to herself. But under the rags were several assault weapons. There are always some crazies in the park and I always think about that when I see them. There are also visible snipers on top of the White House roof and that is a little disconcerting.

    This pretty well sums up why I'm miserable:

    We were on the way to that progressive world that the "Star Trek" motto "infinite diversity in infinite combinations" described, and now we are trying to regress to bigotry, hate, racism, nationalism, and all that is the worst in our history.

    I'll let you all in on a secret, we had the first game of the season here last year, at the good old SCG, I understand there are plans to do it again.

    Couldn't get there myself but everyone I know who went loved it.

    I watch on TV from time to time, but don't fully understand some of the obscure rules, but understand enough (from playing various forms of the game at primary school) to enjoy it.

    I also watch your football (watched pro bowl on Monday our time) is why it takes so loooooong to play these games, it's nearly as bad as cricket.

    Actually Pat, I don't go out of the way to listen to the news that much anymore. I guess I'm looking for alternate facts in a way. Never could stand the Huffington Post. But the news does manage to drift down to me anyway.

    I do catch films on Turner Classics.

    Somewhat, but the bat used is different, and you swing it differently. It's closer to the old games "Rounders". [Thanks for not saying it was like croquet!].

    Not much. I have decided that cricket is like croquet with a tossed ball. In baseball, there is more running, and players get to spit tobacco juice more often.

    Now me ,I get up between 9 and 10 in the morning,9 being a little early.Has a cup of tea and takes my pills in a relaxed sort of way.Reads the paper,and by 12 oclock,ready for another cup of tea.See no sense in clearing up the muddles,there will only be more,and the cleaner comes once a week anyway,so snooze a couple of hours.Goes and sees my neighbour for a while,next unit to mine,then back for a delivered meal.
    Now evening, so on to the computer,then watch a film.A drink or two while watching,then to bed.Tell me,what's stress?Sure some days I feel like a twenty year old,but can never find one,but at 89 years of age and waiting to reach 90,it's best I don't.Whose Trump?
