There was an unmarked black helicopter circling low in our neighborhood for a good two hours. We thought it was covering a protest or something over in the medical area, but it hovered damn near directly over our building for a good while. Not news, not cops and not medivac (MV wouldn't be hovering). Wonder if that could be related to the (we hope) fireworks that were going off in the neighborhood for the last few nights? WTF did it come from and who does it belong to?

Have you tried flightradar24.com ? Helicopters doesn't file a flightplan, so no destination, but you can usually see to whom it belongs.
Too late now I guess, but next time.

Two kinds of respect:

1) "I want your respect" = "I want to be treated like I'm your equal"

2) "I want your respect" = "I want you to treat me like I'm your boss/superior"

One is right, one is wrong.

Problem is that respect means different things to different people, in different situations, and it keeps changing.

Yup. And if you aren't careful, people will respect you like they'd respect a wasp or a rattlesnake.

Made doughnuts with the kids today. At least, they resembled doughnuts They tasted OK. I won't be giving Krispy Kreme a run for their money anytime soon though.

Since 2020 started, I've really counted myself lucky so far. I've got a steady job, a roof over my head, food in my fridge, some family close enough to me, I'm not in debt of any kind, and can pay my monthly bills on time with one job. I may not be money rich, but I'm comfortable and live in a place where I can take a beach day if I wanted to or walk onto my deck and check on my small garden there.

It's really the small things that make life rich for me.

I'm resisting the temptation to comment either on AK's 'small garden' or AK's circular jammy sticky kids that resemble doughnuts

I uploaded an ebook manuscript to KDP and it was all correct...the first time!

And the paperback creation is going really well too.

Am I...getting good at this?

Hey now!

I did pick a yellow squash earlier today, got a few peppers growing and the tomato plant is blooming. Fingers crossed that the green onions continue to grow as planned.
