I am probably working on Hubski.

Send me a PM or post with the tag #bugski if you think something is broken.

I filter #thebeatles.

I do not agree with everything that I post. I hope you don't either.

Mulvaney threw the Justice Department under the bus too:

    ”I was involved with the process by which the money was held up temporarily, OK?" he said. "Three issues for that: the corruption in the country, whether or not other countries were participating in the support of the Ukraine, and whether or not they were cooperating in an ongoing investigation with our Department of Justice. That's completely legitimate.”

Barr must be mad.

That's disconcerting.

Probably for the best, IMO.

This

always feels like this

to me.

No idea, but definitely not a tree. No avocados. Those lumps were all acorns.

Funny thing, the oak sprouted, but that little green thing wasn't it.

The oak is now in the upper peninsula of Michigan. I'll have to remember to take a pic next year, if it survives.

Yeah, I did that. I'm going to take another shot later today.

I can't remember if I posted this table that I made. I threw it together pretty quick, and was impressed that I could cut those logs in half lengthwise with a chainsaw without cutting myself.

I'm starting in on a new painting tonight. I always look forward to that. ecib commissioned one, so maybe this will be what he gets.

I am having a hell of a time getting Ubuntu installed on a Windows 10 computer. It should be straight-forward, but it's not letting me create the partition I need. I've managed to unmount the USB file I cannot install into, but cannot yet create or get it to recognize one I need to install into. I remember it used to be so easy...

Fall is finally here, which makes me happy. I'll take overcast and chilly over sunny and sweaty most days.

Also, I hope Trump does a horseback photoshoot before he's out of office.

Yeah, looks like pokeweed. I think the berries started off white.

They've just appeared here and there.

Did they have white berry-looking things on top? We have some of those.

I like the brevity in Arc. I don’t know why, but it works for me.

I’m more in agreement with his first article, but part of my reason for posting is that I find the second article admirable.

mk  ·  6 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Still totally not QE

Yeah, I was being a bit facetious. Not like the stock market is up because of retail demand either.

It's like the bartender asked if we were going to have something to eat too, and we said: "Uh huh, I'll have another beer and another shot of whiskey".

Really sucks when everything is a lemon.

Stock market is near record high. Unemployment is near record low. CODE RED!

Wow. I was just talking about this last night with my wife, and remembered that Oct 10 was supposed to be the end of it.

U need moar USD? OK moar USD. U need we buy shares? OK we buy shares. U need moar USD?
