b) we're not even 2/3 through the month yet.

Got ladder out in the rain, unclogged gutter and it's now going where it's supposed to ~12' away from the house.

🤞 for no more seepage.

"our tuning is responsible for much of our cultural psychology, the fact that we are so geared toward progress and action and violence and so little attuned to introspection, contentment, and acquiesence. Equal temperament could be described as the musical equivalent to eating a lot of red meat and processed sugars and watching violent action films. The music doesn't turn your attention inward, it makes you want to go out and work off your nervous energy on something."

Next election cycle there should be a grass roots movement to never vote Republican or Democrat ever again.
