    • The Ukraine Crisis Is Just A Chance To Acknowledge Choices Already Made
      I read two fairly good articles this week.

What do those guys live on anyway?

I read something in WaPo about how many of us are feeling schlubby after 18 months at home. Yep. And before I sprained my ankle, I was feeling like my metabolism was starting to return to normal. But in a couple months, I should feel sleek and energetic. It’s a goal.

This is about my cadence tonight:
