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

Well I had another kind of episode in mind, but my continuing knee situation became the over-riding concern this week.

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.

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

00:0000:00

Herein the second part of my recounting of my history of April Fools editions.

This time, it's work gags from 1994-1998, excluding 1995. Why didn't it print?

00:0000:00

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.
