Cmon Cubbies. Don’t Fail me Now

Smells like game day!! #Cubs #NLDS #GoCubsGo

The first game of the series. This will be the series that may determine a lot. I’m rooting for the Cubbies but I feel like a few pieces to their game aren’t just dynamite like they were last year. But – the postseason is a whole different animal. You just need to get hot for a few games and before you know it – you’re in the World Series.

Blade Runner…

I’m off to see the newest one today. It’s getting very good early reviews so I’m curious to see how it will pan out. Is Harrison Ford a replicant?!?! I have a feeling we still won’t have a clear idea and we’ll still be guessing.

More Justice League Photos…

Along with a new and the final trailer launching this Sunday.

Off-Duty SDPD at the Concert Shooting

I was brought this gem to my attention by my step-daughter Lauren on Facebook. One of her friends, Max, was at the concert who was an off-duty police officer. Between heroes like this and those that dove on top of their loved ones to save them – we have some amazing people in this country.

Lastly…Words on Alexa

I was told that my wife’s family couldn’t believe that we used Amazon Alexa for our lights, etc and more with the comment ,”Are you ok with it always recording?”

Well, you’re not really understanding how it works. It’s just listening and processing about ten seconds at a time and only looking for keywords. Of course, the keyword is ‘Alexa’. When it doesn’t recognize that in the recorded data it deletes it. It has a very small amount of flash memory onboard and can not afford to store/save any of these conversations.

Trump goes after Mika, Cubs Beat Nationals, and some America’s Got Talent

Trump and Mika

Well, the President became unglued and did what I’ve been thinking he’d be doing for so long. When will someone take away his phone and twitter access? Mashable even wrote a nice piece suggesting that Twitter should ban his account.  You’re the President of the United States. You represent all of us. Even those that did not vote for you. When you take your platform and you use it to attack another woman – you deface the value and integrity of the office to which you represent.

Many people brought up some great responses to him. Many Republican senators and even listened yesterday to a panel of entirely Republican women call him disgraceful. My favorite response was below.

As had become customary, JK Rowling had a great quote from Abraham Lincoln.

I also quite value the opinion of Bill Kristol – edit/writer at Republican magazine ‘Weekly Standard’

Republican Strategist and Communications Chief for George W. Bush Nicole Wallace also had some very valid points on her show.

Also this just in….

It appears that Donald Trump does watch ‘Morning Joe’. He posted this an hour ago.

Cubs Win

My Cubbies pulled out a win with an injured Kris Bryant over one of the best teams in baseball. My buddy, Pete, called Jon Lester a ‘turd’. Well, he was definitely shining against one of the best teams in baseball. Two World Series rings to his credit. How many pitchers have that kind of hardware on your team? *crickets*

America’s Got Talent

Usually, I don’t watch this show. But this amazing clip showed up in my feed. Very well done.
