Day LXII

I consider this an “experimental blog” for a number on number of levels. The way this blog is designed I increase the length of my blog posts by one word each time I post. I post every day. I can write about virtually any topic I choose. Who knows… I might go “all out,” and write a poem. That would be amazing❗

Day LXI

This is “Day 6️⃣1️⃣” of my blogging adventure. This post is 6️⃣1️⃣ words long. My next blog post, which will be “published” tomarrow, will be 6️⃣2️⃣ words long. The post after that one will be 6️⃣3️⃣ words long. Every day I add a word to my blog posts. In one year, I would expect the post would be 3️⃣6️⃣5️⃣ words long.

Day LX

A reminder to tell you what this “blog” is about. While I’ve been “blogging” on and off for about ten to twelve years, I really haven’t been “regular,” or “consistent” about the practice of writing and posting a blog post every day. This is an “experimental blog” that increases in the length of every post by one word each day.

Day LIX

Brooklyn Nets point guard Kyrie Irving made a twenty minute long Instagram Live video “explaining” his decision not to get vaccinated. Because Mr. Irving will not get vacinated, he will not be able to play or practice for the Brooklyn Nets. He will be paid 💲1️⃣8️⃣,0️⃣0️⃣0️⃣,0️⃣0️⃣0️⃣.0️⃣0️⃣; his salary for the away games.

I would like to have this arrangement.

Day LVIII

Donald Trump uses the rhetorical devise of  “glittering generalties.”  Some of the terms he uses include “radical left,” “massive fraud,” “fake news,” “Constitution,” and “stolen election.”  Trump throws out these generalties without providing actual evidence or any convincing logical argument.  Trump’s loyal supporters are not interested in pursuit of the truth or a vigorous investigation of the facts.

Day LVII

There is much speculation whether Donald Trump will run again for president in 2️⃣0️⃣2️⃣4️⃣. He’s back on the “campaign trail,” airing grievances, still claiming he won the 2️⃣0️⃣2️⃣0️⃣ presidential election. Factors Trump will consider include his physical and mental health, his finances, and his legal standing as he is plaintiff and defendant in civil and criminal cases.

Day LVI

Today I am getting my annual flu shot, and for good measure, I will get a tetanus shot (Tdap) as well. I also received my two shingles shots when I was eligible to get them. There are parts of the world were these vaccines are not available. They are in the US. Be smart. Be safe.

Day LV

Former President Trump is vigorously resisting sharing any communications that took place prior to the January 6th insurrection of the US Capitol while the United States Congress was busy working to certify the results of the 2020 US presidential election that he lost. That day four Capitol police officers were killed and hundreds were wounded.

Day LIV

I promised myself not to get riled-up by the antics of Trump. It only feeds into his meglo mania. I do have other interests besides politics and sports. But there are so many interesting things happening in these areas. I will eventually get into “personal” and “philosophical” ideas. Just be patient. More to come.

Day LIII

Other topics that I am willing to “discuss” include “science fact” vs science fiction; history vs futurism; economics: what works vs unproven theories; the “pros and cons” of “daylight savings time,” and the aims and goals of society’s education “system.” I’m not so much a “policy wonk,” but I could “give it a whirl.”
