In a factoid I didn't know, the Zamboni came from California. I figured a Canadian did it, but no!
Ext, Since you are here, what is the deal with Crowdstrike? As far as I know Crowdstrike is an antivirus company. Is there another one?
Catmeat, Try Richardson's Canal House, if you don't mind a bit of a drive.
sbw, This is on the OpEd page, so it is not really journalism. I find the Commentary pieces to be interesting, as often the topics are what others are talking about. I don't agree with many of them, but that's OK. Not every opinion I read has to conform to my worldview.
"The Conservative Case for Elizabeth Warren" was published on Jan 30 as a Commentary piece. It was not the voice of the WSJ. Commentary pieces are intended to be provocative as often as not. It was written by Sheila Bair, the chairman of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., 2006-11. FWIW.
[T]he report had also confirmed that people who comment "first!" but don't even manage to actually be the first comment are going straight to hell. Well I'll be d*mned! :)
I figured it was Kirkwood, Iggy. Nice hill, usually with good snow. Sugar Bowl is sorta North Lake Tahoe, and is the local good hill close to me. So I knew it wan't them.
Must have been Kirkwood, Iggy. Sugar Bowl had large gusts too, but I don't think they broke 200 mph.
Heartiest congratulations, CH!!

What is the deal with Crowdstrike? As far as I know, it is a virus-protection program.

Matt -- did you receive my email message?

I'm going through the ordeal of upgrading all of my company's computers to Windows 10. Most of them control instruments, so making sure all would work after the upgrade took quite some effort. Fortunately, I found a guy who did a lot of nitty-gritty Windows support work at HP to do this for me. He's my new tech's dad. :)
Thanks, Mel. I think I found a valid one. But Matt, if you didn't get my email message, please post here to let me know. I've received no bounce back, so it probably is OK.
Matt, Would you send me an email? There is a DHHS grant available in which you may be interested. I can't find your address.
MrsJ finished out with a selection from "The Sound of Music." She's done, so I put on the Chopin Nocturnes (Rubinstein).

I love Spotify. MrsJ has the remote. We started with Grunge, went though some classic jazz, and now are in her Broadway phase. Currently we are on "My Fair Lady" and we'll see where she goes next.

Regarding PJMedia, I still enjoy Fernandez and scan Instapundit though I do not like the direction his blog has gone. I don't read anything else. Simon gave it a great start, but it has veered in a direction that I don't like much.

Jane, Not to argue, but the many gays I know are all Democrats. They range from the flamboyant, through those who just live their lives without wearing their sexuality on their sleeves, to the celibate (Christian). Most are big-city guys, so that may make a difference.

KK, My experience is that usually you have to add some text (even a period) for a link to post.

Catsmeat, I also find that dreaming is very helpful. The insights usually are not quite right, but they lead my thought in a different direction that often is very consequential.

JMH: it's amazing how often an answer for one thing will occur to you in the middle of thinking about something else completely. MT: I’ve had too many solutions ... that popped out that were a full step beyond any dozen potential solutions I might have been chewing on. Same for me. Often I find just getting out of the workplace makes a difference. Long drives are one. Since arguably I write for a living, I find that when the muse whispers, I can bang out brilliant proposal (well, at least they get funded) in a day or two. When she is not whispering, they are OK but really not great. Workman-like, but not with the hooks that draw people in. Creativity is an interesting thing.

Same one, Iggy. The "Tr" are outlined (white) and the rest are filled in and read. I figured vandalism.

I saw one of those today on a drive to the Bay area, of all places. I also saw dozens and dozens of Teslas. There are everywhere up here. MrsJ says their logo looks like an IUD. :)

MrsJ has been pruning our modest vineyard. She has named only one vine, which she calls "Jerry Garcia." It was an extra thrown in by our grape seedling supplier. Mr. Garcia has been our most productive vine. One day she was in the vineyard and commented to herself that it was really truckin. It has been known as "Jerry Garcia" every since.
I rarely get involved with diet wars here, but allow me to stir the pot. There currently is a claim that highly-processed foods are the problem, and not carbs or other things per se. The glib newspaper version: https://www.theguardian.com/food/2020/feb/13/how-ultra-processed-food-took-over-your-shopping-basket-brazil-carlos-monteiro?utm_source=pocket-newtab Here's the simplest underlying science (abstract): https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/31105044 I can send interested parties the entire article, but I shouldn't post it. Most know my email address, but if you are interested and don't have, please post to let me know.
