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

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.

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.

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.

It's on to the actual bat mitzvah itself, and some of the aftermath on Sunday morning. One more episode to go!

I can now tell you, having recorded the third portion that follows this installment, that my Denver saga will run across FOUR podcasts. Yes, I will talk for TWO HOURS about events that happened over a 48-hour period. So bear with me!
