TexTech Free

First off, my screen name. I am a Texan working in a technical field. I did NOT attend Texas Tech. I went to a real university in Texas. Born and grew up in Houston, then spent about 24 years in Austin, back to Houston, and then in Indiana, first time to live outside of Texas. Back to Austin ten years and now 26 months (as of late August, 2021) in Miami, FL. Work keeps me moving around. I am now on my way to North Carolina. While only living in three states, I have passed through or visited 35-40 of the lower 48 states. I have missed the Big Sky country (Dakotas, Wyoming, Montana) and upper New England states. As should be obvious from my comments, I am a yellow dog Democrat with views on social justice based on the teachings of all the great religious teachers. I love music of most types. Not opera. I can tolerate some C&W. Have heard very little rap I can tolerate. My music is traditional Blues and 60s-70s rock. Also like classical and easy listening.

    They sort of got run over by the vastly more althetic players today. I imagine a good fastball back in the ‘20s and ’30s might have come smoking in at about 75=80 MPH unlike today’s 100 MPH fastballs. I think today’s players are also more all around players with no particular skill such as bunting or base stealing. Back in the day, certain players were highly prized because of their specific skill. The rules have changed (for good or ill) to keep up with the change in the players.

    Sort of like love and vole are anagrams. Does that mean love is just a burrowing rodent?

    I believe Putin blames America for the fall of the USSR rather than their own financial mismanagement. He is now hoping to return the favor by bringing down American democracy. The scenario that really scares me is Trump in the White House and total chaos in the streets. So Trump calls in some “outside help,” Russian troops, to help quell the unrest. Once Putin has his troops on our soil, no telling what could happen.

    Now how do you wash that out of the protoplasm?

    Reminds me of a comment by some baseball player. He said his ex-wife made him a millionaire. He used to be a multi-millionaire.

    That must have been a very long, long time ago. I haven’t heard of a boy checking with Dad about marrying his daughter in a lot of years. Now they just do it. Then they get married.

    Actually, they are. You allow things to descend to such a state of chaos that you will accept, willingly, anyone who claims they can fix it. The problem is just that you won’t like the way they fix it.

    I think the Illuminati disappeared several centuries ago so that part is out. So who or what group is taking their place?
