The sun is quite bright
As I rise from my night.
It most certainly seems
I've lingered in dreams.
The pump of my heart
Means, my day I can start.
Another fine morning
After leaving the snore thing.
Now, coffee in hand,
And isn't that grand?
I'll get back into the swing.
What joys will Saturday bring?
I need 8 hours of sleep to function properly, 9 or 10 hours to feel good & refreshed.
How about you?
(Boosts good for a wider sample)
@alan It is definitely a unique taste. That fact that I liked it above all other soft drinks until my late teens says it held a great attraction at one point, then to have that turn off, never to return does make it a quandary in my life.
@alan I loved it as a child many decades ago, when a root beer ice cream float was a real and rare treat. I don't think I've had it since and can't stand to even sip a taste of it now. Interesting...
I won't ever have a sundial embedded in the earth as long as I live with daylight saving time and just have to accept the wrong angle of shadows on the exact minute of the Summer Solstice on June 20 this year. 😂
Daylight Saving Time has now begun here for 2021. I now get more make my annual statement about how much I hate it but will spare all the details as to why. This year I did some research on DST and was shocked at how many countries in the world use DST.
Do you like Daylight Saving Time?

Had a tech nightmare this week when I couldn't login to my (cloud-based) password manager (Encryptr). It turned out that the service had been discontinued and they shut down the servers, meaning I couldn't access any of my passwords.
Thankfully there was quite a bit of uproar and the servers are back on this weekend for users to export their data.
I could have lost 200+ passwords for my entire (digital) life. I should have known better. We all make mistakes, please learn from mine!
@stanhamil I drove 20-24 ft straight trucks and cargo vans. The nice thing about the bigger trucks was when people were rude and sped up to get ahead of you when you were signaling to change into their lane in front of them (with plenty of room) and how quickly they would back off and disappear from view in your rear view mirror when you changed lanes anyway, squeezing them between the truck and a retaining wall. I never hit them but didn't know where they went either, except away.
A badly need cup of strong black coffee at daybreak this morning, given the semi rough week/month/YTD it has been. It helped! #coffee
Enjoys coffee, history, visual communications, the creative/technical. My interests are vast and eclectic.
Consider this a friendly, local pub. Make yourself at home, bring your friends, have a good time! Meet new people, have a laugh, enjoy the ambience, and the Oxford commas.
