Re: Censorship continued: first the Parler app then @realDonaldTrump

Calling Smithers, hello Smithers!

Just curious as to what the comments/mood/street talk were in Hong Kong re. the assassination attempt on former President Trump.

Your pictures are great.

Re: Daily "Check In" Thread For Us

I agree that the Vanguard service has gone down hill significantly. Seems like it began with the push to brokerage accounts. I’ve tried for over 3 months, unsuccessfully, to get check writing and checks sent to me for a joint money market account. Absolutely abysmal service.

Re: What Journal/Notes Software Do You Use?

I prefer a good grilled cheese than a grilled Fauci. Sourdough bread topped with mozzarella cheese and roasted red peppers. Far superior to a roasted Fauci.
