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

Found a bunch of news stories from April that I meant to discuss a while ago.

This week - the best selections from April!

My standing workstation is two cardboard boxes.

I've been using my office chair for 16+ years and it no longer rises, yet I have yet to request a replacement.

The chair before that was broken, but I avoided trashing it by simply not leaning backwards until building services forcibly removed it from my office.

In other words, health in the workplace was not one of my primary concerns until this year.

This week, more fun and merriment with little league.

Two of my brothers participated in organized little league baseball. I had a few opportunities and offers but declined.

Now my younger son is on his fourth "team" and it's his brother who has declined opportunities and offers.

My landlady's slop sink was clogged this afternoon.

Since I act as tenant and super for the building, that meant spending an hour emptying buckets of water into the drain outside.

And it also gave me time to think about MY home improvement skills.

The fifth and final installment of my April Fools series!

00:0000:00

More of my April Fools editions, up to 2004 this week.

Taking a week's break from the April Fools' stuff to talk BOWLING BOWLING BOWLING!

April 1 has meant one thing to me for more than 25 years – the chance to publish something goofy and silly, but still with a little bite. I've been fortunate to be employed by a company that has let me do an April Fools edition every year (sometimes by the skin of my teeth).

This year will be no different, except this marks the 25th (or 26th) edition. So I'm going to take an extended look back that may take me all the way into April.

In the headlines (last) week:

Construction on housing finally scheduled to get underway near CitiField

MetroCard upgrade delayed because it was scheduled for Super Bowl weekend

Trump will probably refuse to release Democratic memo and blame the FBI

Plastic bag tax is underway on Long Island but not state-wide

Did you know there are five public toilets in New York City, and that it took 25 years to open them?
