  3:14pm P-90:

I enjoyed having a kind of mantra this week. Every day there was something disturbing in the news, about our government and how its soul seems to be in jeopardy. But every time I heard about yet another disheartening development, I softly sang to myself a chorus of Pongo’s “Uwaaaaa, Uwaaaaa...”. And I smiled and just watched the world go by, without attaching too much or getting upset.

My wife and I, and all my ex-gfs never 'celebrated' Valentines Day. If you love someone, you express it every day. No need for an artificial occasion. Although, one year, my wife, insisted on a White Castle Valentines Day meal (due to the absurdity of the advertisement), and she's vegan...

@mariano, ha! I let the work drift away a couple hours ago -- part of the point was to make sure Kate and I got to hear SBB together! She's out of town tomorrow. So I have been mixing Rob Roys. Just about to make some food. Been a good day. Not even upset to hear that our car is dead. It's been coming for a while ...

How's the season treating you?
