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

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?

The Super Bowl is Sunday, February 4.

And I'll be done with football-related pools for seven months!

Has it been 300 podcasts already?
This week, I play the very first episode I ever recorded (sorry for low quality) and then come back with some thoughts on the past six years.

It was my older son's birthday this week.

My younger son's birthday was at the end of November, so they are both "done" within a ten-week period for the year - with the holidays in between.

As this is podcast #299, I decided to talk about birthdays and celebrations... Mulling what to do next week!

I had some bitcoin and wanted to sell part of it, to get "real cash."

And here is where my adventures began.

Got done with the 2017 book sale, which can only mean one thing.

It's less than a year until the 2018 book sale.

I've become a fan of many sports and many teams, but it's taken a great deal of time.

For some sports, much more time than others.

As the national election day approaches, I thought back to the two times in college where I ran for a public office. 

Neither was a particularly pleasant experience but at least I get 30+ minutes of podcast from them.

AM NY dubbed last week's Mayoral debate "Dietl Mania," because of the presence of gadfly (with no chance of winning) Bo Dietl.

Some local commentary, so be forewarned.
