My congratulations to Jeff Bezos

Let me ask you one question,
Is your money that good?
Will it buy you forgiveness?
Do you think that it could?
I think you will find,
When your death takes its toll,
All the money youve made will never buy back your soul.

from Masters of War, by Bob Dylan

There's a special place in He'll

for whoever invented autocorrect.

My friend, the anti-masker

Good friend of mine was in a store, and was one of about half of the crowd wearing a mask.
A woman in her 30s or 40s approached him and said, "I don't mean to be rude, but why are you wearing that mask? Even Fauci and the CDC no longer recommend it."

He said his response just came to him. Leaning towards her, he said in a low voice, "Oh, I agree, and I have never worn them when I could avoid it, but my doctor made me promise to since I had a positive Covid test yesterday. I haven't had any symptoms, so I decided....." He said she didn't hear the rest of what he was saying as she was backing away from him at a quick pace.

for the record, he is fully vaccinated and, like me, says he will continue to mask up so that no one will suspect him of being a Republican.

Buying a new iPhone

I was very fortunate to have a new iPhone every 2 years, fully set up and supported by my company IT department, but I retired three years ago and now have to buy a new one.
If anyone cares to offer any advice, it would be appreciated.

1- Which phone should I buy, and where is the best place to get it?
2- Will they fully set up the new phone and transfer all of my date, photos, notes, etc to the new phone?
3- Will the new phone then be synced to my computer and iPad as it is now?
4- And finally, is my Apple ID all I need for this process? There is not a separate iCloud ID?

Thanks if anyone wants to weigh in.

Anybody else have a boy sister?

Its impossible to explain to very young children that adults started out as little people their size.
Ive tried telling my twin 3 year old granddaughters that their Dad was once my baby, and was no bigger than they are now.
I was with them today, and explained that, at one time, their Dad was a baby and lived with me, and their Mom was a baby and lived with Pop Pop.
One of them looked at her sister for a minute, and then said, So you and Pop Pop were boy sisters?
Close enough. Ill try again in a year or so.

Doesn't this emoji

Look like Lindsey Graham?

Matt Gaetz as a role model

from the internet:
If you feel you have not achieved as much success as your peers, just keep trying. Matt Gaetz is now a Congressman, and he didn't get his first High School girlfriend until he was in his 40's.

If we called Barack's health care plan "Obamacare"

Shouldn't we call the Corona pandemic "Trump Don't Care"?

Observation on governance

President Biden has listed our four current priority issues:
Covid, the Economy, Climate, and Racism/Equality.
While the Democrats were passing a bill to deal with the first two emergencies, the Republicans were obsessed with Dr Seuss and gender issues involving a plastic potato.
While one party was governing, the other was showing that they have nothing to offer.

Is a secret ballot at the end of the Impeachment trial no longer possible?

A few weeks ago, there was speculation that a majority vote (50 Dems and the VP) could order that the final vote be by secret ballot. Several articles pointed out that this win for the Dems could also be a boon for the GOP, since they could remove Trump from future contention while not having to acknowledge their individual vote. Some articles even speculated that a genuine secret vote could get 80 plus votes, meaning a majority of the R's.
I haven't heard any speculation on this since the trial began, so my assumption is that this would have needed to be in the original agreement on conducting the proceedings.
Anyone have any ideas if this could still be a possibility, albeit very much a long-shot?
