"To pass an evening With a drink and a friend..." Time Stand Still, Rush

Image
Spent the day with my best friend of forty-three years. Drove some of the old roads we used to cruise when we were much, much younger and gas was much, much cheaper. Ended up around canyon Lake, then headed across to Wimberly and Ranch Road 12, following that into San Marcos and stopping for lunch at Grin’s, just like when we were back in college.

The rest of the day was spent cruising through the Texas country side and enjoying the scenery and spring wildflowers in bloom, all while listening to a collection of 80’s hits, with copious amounts of Rush.

Ended the day with a cigar on the patio. Need to do this again soon.

The Need For A Mac Semi-Pro

I’m hoping that Apple will release a Mac available in a chassis similar to the current Mac Pro, but maybe with some scaled down specs and limited expandability. The iMac doesn’t work for me. I don’t need a built-in screen when I have multiple 4K and 5K monitors. The MacBook Pro just takes up space on the desk in clamshell mode, and is a little under powered for what I’d like and limited in memory capacity. The Mac mini has even greater memory limitations. I need about 5x more RAM than is supported by that thing.

I find myself hoping that Apple will make another announcement here before summer. It’s hard to justify almost $10K on a tower.

Briefly...

Stacks Image 185

5-14-2021 - Saw my last final was graded and miracle of miracles I was able to maintain my 4.0 average for one more semester. I really didn’t think that was going to happen as much as I struggled in Finance.

5-11-2021 - Last final for the semester is in the books. Three weeks then right back into it.

5-6-2021 - Just one final exam left to go. Then just six classes left and I will FINALLY finish something I started.

4-11-2021 - 34

4-7-2021 - If I hear one more ReTrumplican complain about “cancel culture” my head is going to explode. Do they not realize the astronomical level of hypocrisy in complaining about cancel culture while supporting an idiot who one, trademarked the phrase “you’re fired,” and two, fires anyone who disagrees with or contradicts him?

4-1-2021 - Registered for my final semesters. If I don’t blow it I will graduate in December. Finally.

3-22-2021 - Happy Birthday, Captain Kirk. William Shatner turns 90 today.

3-11-2021 - I just interviewed for an IGI position at Ramstein. The Wing and the mission sound very interesting. It would be a challenging and awesome position, one that I think fits my talents and skills well.

2-20-2021 - Made it through the snow and ice with no broken pipes. Final semester in school since I am being forced to drop out - again. Not at all happy about it, but I’ll never have peace if I don’t.

2-15-2021 - Well, looks like I have to quit again.

1-13-2021 - Going to change my political party affiliation from Republican to Independent. I cannot be a party to traitors and treason.

1-8-2021 - It’s not over yet, I fear. Reading post by Trump Loyalist vowing to fight on. I can imagine these types. I think I almost married one - thank goodness she decided to dump me.

1-1-2021 - First day of the new year. I want to get out for a ride, but too cold right now. Saw William Cohen call for Republicans to dump Trump and start a new party. Finally, an idea I can get behind.

12-29-2020 - This horrible year is almost over. Right now it’s difficult to be optimistic about 2021. Too many stupid people.

12-24-2020 - Merry Christmas. Finished my first ride on my new Wahoo Kickr trainer via Swift and took a tour through the French countryside. Much more realistic than grinding away on an indoor trainer.
