Start out with some positivity! The power we all have within us. Honest Abe knew.
Folks are usually about as happy as they make their minds up to be.

The Beep Drill
What's a Beep Drill?
The concept is simple. They line up on a back field, listen for a beep from a speaker, run 21 yards to a cone, turn around and run 21 yards back, trying to cross the line before another beep. After a break, they do it again. And again. And again. Until the last player is standing.

Book: The Siren by Tiffany Riesz
Review: 3 bill-stars (out of 5)... ok
I can't remember exactly how I found The Siren. I always seem to forget how I find these books. (sigh) Well, The Siren is supposed to be kinky, erotic fiction, and it had high reviews. So, that's probably a big part of why I gave it a try.
The book is okay. I give especially high marks to the writing style. It's really quite well-written. It's pretty wild in some parts. More mild in a lot others. As the book went on though, it turned from erotic fiction into more of a traditional rom-com movie. I kept envisioning Hugh Grant as the male protagonist. (dop!) The book limps to the finish line with a sugar sweet ending.
"Nora," he gasped a warning that she didn't heed. He flinched hard and came with a ragged breath. Through the haze of alcohol and orgasm he saw Nora sit up on his thighs. She picked up the whiskey, poured it and down him and the shot in one swallow.
She looked down at him. "I love a whiskey chaser."I'll risk being boiled in oil here... I think the lady's might enjoy this book more than I did.
- The Siren, hard at work (ha!)
Still... a good read.
It is sometimes called the freshman sum, as it is a common mistake in the usual addition of fractions.
Snarky maths! (ha)
I got home late and Network was on. Faye Dunaway. She looks fantastic. Yow! The whole movie is outstanding. Watching the movie, I wondered... Who's Howard Beale here in 2017? President Trump? Or lefties losing their minds over Trump? Or both? (ha)
So, you listen to me. Listen to me!
Television is not the truth.
Television's a god-damned amusement park.
Television is a circus, a carnival, a traveling troupe of acrobats, storytellers, dancers, singers, jugglers, sideshow freaks, lion tamers, and football players.
We're in the boredom-killing business.

State Department = Losers. Drain the swamp!
Drain the Swamp (DtS) QOTD
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has reassigned a majority of the staff meant to work most closely with the top US diplomat in what career officials at the State Department fear is the start of a major reorganization.
The news sent shock waves through the agency and has left career officials on edge, in part because of its abrupt nature -- taking place before their assignments end this summer and replacements have been found -- and in part because these officials help the secretary, a government novice, work with policy experts throughout the building.And the $$$ quote (very funny!):
- Tillerson presides over abrupt shakeup at State Department
"The motivation was to move people way from idle roles into productivity."
Trump Tweet OTD
Firing State Department nabobs.
Poking the media with a sharp stick.
One month of Trump... he's exceeded any expectation.
What a beginning!
peace out... yow, bill
