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

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.

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.

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.

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!

Two updates on the topics from the past two weeks.

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