Honestly I get very concerned about how early you wake up. Which I know is compounded by how late I stay up (since I work second shift). But are you getting enough sleep, Rich? I worry (banned punctuation).
It’s a mom thing, I know. But I worry. I want you to stay healthy (banned punctuation).
As I tell my kids, if you’re happy, I’m happy. And I’ve been working a shifted sleep schedule since I was 18 years old (and I love it). I just want to be sure you’re healthy and happy. If you’re good, I’m good. :)
You’re right, Rich. I really do not want to talk about the Illinois and Purdue game, but what about those Cardinals. “Sweet 16″ - a streak that just keeps going, 11 wins in a row on the road and a 4 game sweep over my second favorite team, the Cubs. Life is good right now.
It remains a mystery how a state the size of Illinois with a rich history of producing college and pro football players, can simply be so bad at producing winning football teams on the pro and college levels.
It was a gorgeous weekend. I practically spent the whole thing outside. I followed the German election coverage, and noted some common pernicious customs (talking over one another without listening to what the other is saying). Someone needs to patent a gadget that simultaneously mutes a mic and sends an unpleasant electric jolt to the person overspeaking. The duration of the jolt could lengthen for each time this occurs. There are, apparently, at least two markets for this.
The Bears….*sigh*….are who we thought they were. And you can’t pin the loss on Justin Fields. Between blown coverages, missed tackles, and terrible blocking, it’s a wonder the score wasn’t worse.
Nagy and Pace…..should be on the bubble for this mess.
Not in Illinois but Illinois related, R Kelly guilty. I hope Jim DeRogatis is on tv or radio talking about this because he has been preaching the truth for years and getting hit on it often. Bless the women…often very young…who endured abuse and fought back.
