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

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.

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!

When temperatures drop way below freezing, people act like we're in another Ice Age.

Social media doesn't help this impression. And some people act like a few days of arctic temperatures invalidate every scientific fact about what's happening with the environment.

There have been a number of people posting online about their pets recently.

I would post about mine - but they're very far in the past.

And none of them was particularly memorable.

I recorded this episode in three segments on Election Day 2017.

The first at lunch, the second at dinner, and the third after the polls closed.

My perspective on some things changed over the course of the day's events.

The New York City mayoral election is this week and nobody is giving Republican candidate Nicole Malliatokis a chance of victory.

Then again, this election is not all about getting elected. It's part of a larger, more intricate process involving the workings of the political system in New York City and State.

Totally did not get around to recording a new episode this week.

The reprise is from when many of us unfortunately learned the name "Martin Shkreli" from the first time.

 The CEO of Mylan, makers of the EpiPen, announced that the cost of the life-saving devices would skyrocket to $600. There was an uproar, but that didn't affect the price. In fact, the company announced a generic brand for half the price. Why? Why indeed.
