## Morning Mastodonians!

It was a reasonably nice day yesterday, puttering about the house, pressure washing the deck and back patio. I did get in some much needed hammock / beer / book time. Really enjoying *Jade City*. Still too danged cold to get in the pool though. It gets too cool in the evening for the sun alone to heat it up enough to swim in. I've had it open since before Memorial Day and haven't been in yet.

I did finally get to watch a movie with my new set up yesterday. Spent some more time fighting with the Logitech Harmony remote but I worked around its flaws enough to use. The new Onkyo receiver with Dolby Atmos is really amazing. My current setup:

+ TCL Series 6 65" Roku 4k TV
+ Onkyo TX-SR393 A/V Receiver
+ 2 Phase Technology Teatro 7.5 floor standing speakers
+ 3 Phase Technology Teatro 6.5 speakers (surround and center)
+ Polk 10" subwoofer

It's a pretty good set up and performs great.

The movie I watched as "Cha Cha Real Smooth", which was on my "To Watch" list for Sundance 2022 until I bowed out. And it was a very good, heartfelt movie, although the dialog was, once again, drowned out by the soundtrack. Reminded me of CODA in a way. Recommended. Check it out on Apple TV.

Crawling back into the slime of the salt mine today, much to my chagrin. It's been hard to face today. Just catching up on my emails has exhausted me. Ever have so much work you feel paralyzed instead? Yeah, I just need to get started and I should be fine. Just fine.
