December 15: I've added yet another
bling to my race bling collection. This one was a virtual race
Virginia invited me to run in. We went 13.1 miles plus starting
from her front door. Real miles and a real medal, but nothing
beyond that unless you count uploading the results to the virtual
run events website. In other news, a billion people's information
was stolen from Yahoo! Remember when "yahoo" was a word for
October 2016: WOW! OMG! This tomato
from my plot has a built in picture of Bill The Cat playing guitar
and smoking a cigarette.
Nov 13th, 2016: I doubled the size
of my race walking bling collection as a finisher in San Jose's
Veterans Day Run.
Oct 2nd,2016: Virginia liked San
Francisco because she really enjoyed the Cake concert in Golden
Gate Park. Earlier in the day we participated in the San Jose Rock
'n Roll Half Marathon. My time was nothing to brag about, but
getting it was much more work than I'm used to doing before lunch
on Sunday Morning nowadays. It really was my best half marathon of
this Millennium. Very happy that we were able to top off the day
with seeing a rock 'n roll concert by Cake.
Sept 11th, 2016. Since the BICYCLING
AGAINST OIL WARS picture was taken, the football shaped Helium
balloon has lost even more of its bouyancy. Now it can't keep
anything up, even with the string cut off. Leans against the
lowest surface it can find no matter what. Not time to drop that
object in the dumpster. Right now it's a kitchen trash can
ornament. Looks good there.
My big online accomplishment of the day was illustrating the thing
on my SPAM can changing experience. I went camping in the Sierra
Nevada, so it made sense to drink Sierra Nevada beer. Turns out
there was one left at the end of the weekend, so I put it where
the honey bear from Georgia used to be.
2016: Dave Schwab said a thing on social media is showing a
picture of what you are eating. Here it is, my first bowl of
homegrown vegetable soup since getting back from the Green Party
Convention in Houston, Texas. That's about three fifths of the
zucchini, all of the tarragon, and more than half of the chard I
harvested during my first trip to my garden since returning to
California. The big news of the event is that we nominated Dr.
Jill Stein as our candidate for President of the United States.
It was the Green Party's best Convention since Nader 2000. I'm
feeling good about campaigning and voting for Dr. Jill Stein 4
POTUS this year.
July 5th: To
make a long story short, Bernie lost the primary. Not really
into singing the blues, so it's back to being a green movement
activist for me. In case you're wondering what that's all about,
it involves deriving entertainment value from the kinds of
stickers in the above picture.
