MrJeff2000 Explains It All It’s a mad, mad, mad, mad, um what was I talking about again?

Part two of my summer vacation covers an entire 24-hour period (Friday, August 23, 2019). Sorry but that's all I can say here.

I finally got around to talking about my summer vacation. Well, at least the first to days of it.

As well as an annoying call with someone who wanted to donate books in the most inconvenient manner possible.

Larry King used to do no prep work for his television show, which was a slap in the face to broadcasters who cared about providing viewers with interesting and insightful conversation. He also did a newspaper column that used ellipses to divide his fragmented, pointless points. I'm using a similar tact to cover two different topics this week.

Amtrak is expected to turn its first profit since incorporating in 1971.

There's a lot of history behind the railway system.

I manage to bungle through some of it this time around.

On vacation this week, so here's the podcast from April 2017:

It was my birthday this past week. Thanks for asking. I spent the day with my sons, and reflected on how I chose the activities we embarked upon.

I try to be a good tenant. And I help the landlady hire people for home repairs, among other things. But two of my umbrellas disappeared this week. And I'm mildly miffed.

Sunday PM update: Nice big blue umbrella and smaller one are both back!

Peak TV means you can never watch everything – there's always too much.

But I was watching back when there were three networks, and I didn't even know that.

Health updates about myself and my sons.

What else could you want in the middle of summer?

There were a full three pages of news about New York's Metropolitan Transit Authority today. So much information, in fact, that I could only talk about the first two pages.

My younger son might have made a friend at the swim club this week.

Maybe.
