Just finished my first Sunday long training run(/walk) and it completely kicked my butt. Need to wake up earlier next week to deal with the heat, hills and AQI
Super glad I woke up at 6:15 to run early - AQI is now at 169 and it looks like L.A. smog in our backyard. Training plan for TC 10 Mile set and entered in the calendar - 15 weeks to go
Listening to the 2018 remaster of Wings Wild Life album (originally from 1971). I've listened to a lot of music in my life, but always fun to hear stuff I've missed
Could just be me, but the monthly Apple updates seem to install quicker these days (and with no issues, knock on wood). Still also very happy with my current AWS Ubuntu server update process…
Detroit broke the 7 - Joe isn’t going to be happy
Broke in the new shoes with a slow four mile run before the Twins game and Mucci’s - Happy Father’s Day!
Had a great time in Rochester this week at the Mayo Clinic (not as a patient). What an amazing organization and team 💯
Spent some time this weekend cleaning up and re-organizing my iPhone: deleted apps I never use, experimented with some new widgets, tried to get more logical screen groupings, etc.
Wish live sports scores were easier - via a widget, lock screen, whatever. Need to research that more - maybe I’m just not seeing the right solution out there…
Don't know about the Minneapolis Cure show, but the one in Saint Paul last night was very fun
Almost forgot to report that lemon cake season is back again at Portillo’s
So great to see some purple on the timeline today 💜
Dammit, I'm not that old yet: these smart asses showed up *twice* on my long bike ride today
Honestly impressed that Mastodon didn't break today
Ran across some old photos I took at the 2009 PGA Championship and can't believe these came out of my D70
Ramen Kazama in Minneapolis has been on my list since they opened 8 years ago - finally had lunch there today with my oldest daughter
I've had a map of the London Underground hanging in my office for 25+ years and even now I can look up at it and discover new stops I hadn't heard of before.
Would love to get back there again someday…
So wait, Two Dots is now under Zynga control (which in turn was purchased by Take-Two Interactive)?
Sure didn’t have Vegas-Florida on my Stanley Cup bingo card
First lupine sighting of the year in La Lake Park, Woodbury, Minnesota
Fun morning at the Minnesota State Fair Milk Run 5K - now in May instead of in the fall
Saint Paul PSA: Shepard Road along the Mississippi River is now open to all traffic
I'll still usually respond to the marketing “feedback” emails I get from companies I like, but just once it would be nice to hear from a real person that they received it and actually did something with that data (for both good and bad feedback).
“Thanks, maintenance fixed that broken light”
"Thanks, we gave the bartender an extra hour of PTO”
Today I found Mountain Dew Zero 12-packs for $3.75 and I feel like I won the 2023 lottery
Mystic Lake Casino took my favorite slot machine off the floor (Black Orchid), but some other old games were fun and highly volatile (like this 160x win on a 40-cent bet)
Seems like it might be a good time to re-evaluate all of the latest macOS web browsers
This also reminds me I should probably figure out how to place a CW on an image in Ivory
Sad to report that the mosquitoes now have full control over Afton State Park. Well, except for these squirmy things that will haunt my nightmares
It was so nice outside today in Minnesota. Spring might only last a few weeks here, but it's great when you can get it
What a great first visit to the bison prairie project at Spring Lake Park Reserve near Hastings, Minnesota. Eight big ones and four babies! 🦬
Nature is awesome (but I also just removed a tick from my pant leg)
I’ve been going to baseball games for almost 50 years and today was the first time I’ve heard a pitch called a “slurve” ⚾️
CarPlay on my old Civic stopped working, but Troubleshooting 101 fixed it
It appears to be controlled burn season - saw two different ones today 🔥🔥
I think Minnesota is in the clear for a few months
Internet search really seems to have regressed lately. Many of the current services are unable to find information that I know is out there. Will all these new AI tools make this situation better or worse?
She finished back in December, but got to walk today - huge congrats to kid two on her graduation from UMD today. Very proud parents ❤️
A Minnesota Northland Classic
Fun to catch up with @afarrari at Kitchen and Rail in Eagan tonight
Minnesota mountain bike PSA: T-shirt weather has returned and the trails at Carver Lake Park in Woodbury are 100% open
I know why they do it, but I wish the NHL and their broadcast partners would drop the digital ads on the boards - the tech isn't quite there yet, the halo effect is distracting and the puck was already hard enough to follow without it just disappearing from time to time
