I believe in this, and it's been tested by research.

Joe's famous reaction when he was told that a Billboard (I think it was them, or maybe Rolling Stone) Magazine poll put London Calling as the top album of the 80s ... "I thought it was released in 1979".  Love Joe ... RIP brother.  Even though Joe was the son on a Diplomat and born in Turkey he grew up to be the best poet of his time.  He is right, of course.  London Calling was released in the UK in December of 1979 and in January 1980 in North America.

I did not discover London Calling and The Clash until 1982.  I was 18 and that album definately changed my life.

Bumpity bump.

Here's a bit of good news on a Friday:  it has been much cooler in upstate NY the last couple of mornings, which makes a morning run much more pleasant, which in turn creates a good mood for the rest of the day and facilitates a good night's sleep.

Any signs of fall there? Goldenrod is coming out here, and the hillsides are subtly starting to show color change.

I like lighthouses.  We still have many functioning ones here in NS.

Another Friday and I'm still in love ...

Yes! I'm in NH but it's been cooler here, too.  About 58 when I go outside at 5AM the last couple days.  So nice.

I wouldn't say so, but I'm also not the first one to pick up on that kind of thing (or many other kinds of things, for that matter).

I'm sure it will get hot again soon though.  Just enjoying it while it's here -- it was a pretty hot July here.

First day off in months. So needed. 

Started out with a nice flatbread breakfast pizza, then for a hike and hanging out by a creek for a bit.  Had to stop home to get the kid to work and now we're off to Irish Mafia for lunch and some lazy summer afternoon beers to be followed up by more lazy summer afternoon beers at Seven Story brewing along the canal.

Yeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaah..... so needed.

Yeah. I've been going out almost every weekend this summer (I live in southern NH. It's a ~2-2.5 hr drive depending).

Last day at the current job today.  Emptied my plate of work.  Sending out goodbye emails.  Fielding alot of calls from co-workers.  HR said they will call me in 6 months to see if I change my mind.  Definitely bittersweet.

But Monday at the new job is gonna be pretty awesome.

Had today off so I spent some time on the water.   Took the kayak out this morning.  Had a good morning.  Caught a bunch of smallmouth bass in the 2-4lb range, a few crappies and perch.  And got in some good exercise in the process.

Yup ... it's Friday.  Survived another week.  A week that started out okay and then got a bit shakey in the middle and seems to be winding down nicely.

Of course, since I work for myself and lost pretty much 3 days due to 'Teddy', I will be working on the weekend, but that is usually the case anyway.

Spent the afternoon at a brewery in the southern tier.  Wife's birfday.  Headed off to a fancy restaurant shortly.
