Who remembers vinyl records. Often called LP's for Long Play.
They ran at a speed of 33 rpm.

I was in the department store passing the music and video section to see they actually have collections of vinyl albums.

Another round of COVID...

I noticed the local pharmacy had remove the plastic shields at the registers. None of the grocery store staff are wearing masks. A small percentage of the customers in several stores are making up.
Things appeared to be getting back to normal and now I see the office staff at two physician's office are masking up this month saying some of their patients have tested positive for COVID, or variant.

It was reported that Donald J. Trump was using campaign donations to fund his legal defense. That may put him under investigation for misuse of funds.

It is now a top story that he has spent more than forty-million on legal fees.

I was confirmed the 21-foot tourist submersible named Titan had imploded and the remains of the wreckage were near the Titanic that it was attempting to explore.

Many engineering professionals said it the that hull made from carbon fiber that failed.

I disagree with that and believe it was the plastic viewport that failed. Either way, all 5 on board perished and it could take months of research to determine the cause of the implosion.

The 21-foot tourist submersible named the Titan had gone missing Sunday. News sources repeated the same story simply because they had no hard facts. Thursday morning, Debris found 500 meters from the Titanic are believed to be from the missing submersible Titan.

Some members still have a profile photo wearing a mask. Most places have dropped the mask requirements.

Formed in 1969, Lynyrd Skynyrd had gone through changes over the years but Gary had been the last surviving member of the original lineup.

News via Facebook said he passed away at the age of 71 and now he's in heaven playing with his Skynyrd brothers.
Let the smears begin...

An upcoming election and DeSantis is leading Trump in the polls for Republican front runner. Today's news has the kettle calling the pot black with Trump posting a photo of the Young DeSantis as a teacher partying with his students. Reader comments thought it was a funny smear as Trump was known for the same activity.
The important thing is actually getting Republicans to actually have Trump win the primary. In my recent blog the Koch brothers are supporting the 'NeverTrump' movement in an effort to deny him the republican party nomination. Donald may smear himself off the the vote.
Who knows, there's always time to create his own party and lose the support of the Republicans.
Drone ON...

For years, I've been reading about Amazon making deliveries by drone. for the record, it's not perfected yet. Good idea or not, something on a large scale must get the approval of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) which is the same government agency that hasn't allowed flying cars. Remember those?
I'm reading some drone companies have plane-like aircraft that drop their cargo from 10 to 12 feet and not land to release the package. Tell that to your Rolex vendor.

People who make flying cars often depict someone stuck in traffic and like a transformer, opening wings and taking to the sky. Read my lips: It ain't happening.
Airplanes (real or converted cars) have to get approval from a flight tower and have a prescribed flight plan... with the exception of a crop duster in Kansas, they all have to be 'on the radar' and takeoff and land from a runway. That includes manned drones.

While Amazon drones have great merit, you cannot fill the sky with drones dropping $200 Yeazy sneakers across town. What are they good for? In my opinion, special emergency authorization like a 20 minute direct flight transporting a heart (on ice) to a hospital 50 miles away where an ambulance transport could be more than one hour getting through one busy city to another busy city. Just like an ambulance helicopter transport, a designated heli-pad is where the package would be received. Logically, there would need to be a fast charge station for the return flight.
