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

A tale of a stupid criminal, some MTA news, and a big legal victory that happened.... in 2017.


I've seen numerous fireworks displays in my lifetime.

But it wasn't until this past week that my children actually witnessed their first live display.

Quite a few memories in those experiences.


Did you know that if you're really wealthy, you can buy art and then donate it to your own museum?

Then as long as the art is viewable to the public, your Foundation can takes tax deductions and you can bequeath it to your heirs THROUGH your Foundation.

Some fun thoughts about the super-rich.


Saw an orthopedist this week and got a whole lot of information as well as tasks.

Going to be a long, early summer.


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.


I went to lunch this afternoon and the restaurant was all teched-up, except for the payment system.

Has cash gone the way of the dinosaur? And what about credit cards?


My quirky left knee is acting up again.


Uber has been working to prevent tipping from becoming an option on their app.

Workers are protesting and so is the taxi commission.

I also have two stories about stupid criminals, my favorite kind.


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.


I renewed my passport AND driver's license in the past few months.

Plus some thoughts about ticket re-selling.
