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

My mother has had the same telephone number for 41 years.

Post-podcast epilogue: The blocked number I referenced is ON MY BLOCKED LIST!!!

I worked the polls for the June 25 special election for Queens DA (and a few judgeships).

Three separate files woven together into a series of semi-coherent thoughts about our democratic process in action.

My older son graduated from high school last week.

Due to terminology and the Department of Education, I have to say he is "transitioning," not graduating.

But the future looks bright, after some up and down spots.

One of my older son's classmates was lost for 13 hours last week.

Not a good experience.

For anyone.

But especially not someone with special needs.

My son's little league team won its first playoff game last weekend.

The secret was they were not TOLD it was a playoff game.

That helped keep the pressure off them, and it was an impressive experience from a group of 8-9 year olds.

Update: They lost in the second round on Saturday, so no finals.

I wouldn't call myself a pacifist; I'm just a guy who got lucky and always used my wits and sense of humor to stay out of fighting situations.

But there were a few times where that wasn't the case.

I just remembered one event, after a long period of having either forgotten or blocked it out.

Should I invest in equipment to do interviews? Would they add a new dimension to the podcast? Leave your thoughts on the podcast Facebook page (MrJeff2000 Explains It All).

Plus a really old news story about the delays to the East Side Access for the LIRR – which has STILL not been completed, even though this article is more than one year old!

My kids are getting ready for their summer programs.

For my younger son, that meant investigating a bunch of new camp options this spring.

Two updates on the topics from the past two weeks.

A bit frustrating, a bit ironic, a bit comic.

I'm a much more experienced home cook then I used to be.

However I can still make the occasional "rookie" mistake.

Stick around and find out what it was.
