TexTech Free

First off, my screen name. I am a Texan working in a technical field. I did NOT attend Texas Tech. I went to a real university in Texas. Born and grew up in Houston, then spent about 24 years in Austin, back to Houston, and then in Indiana, first time to live outside of Texas. Back to Austin ten years and now 26 months (as of late August, 2021) in Miami, FL. Work keeps me moving around. I am now on my way to North Carolina. While only living in three states, I have passed through or visited 35-40 of the lower 48 states. I have missed the Big Sky country (Dakotas, Wyoming, Montana) and upper New England states. As should be obvious from my comments, I am a yellow dog Democrat with views on social justice based on the teachings of all the great religious teachers. I love music of most types. Not opera. I can tolerate some C&W. Have heard very little rap I can tolerate. My music is traditional Blues and 60s-70s rock. Also like classical and easy listening.

    Just to get the facts straight, Spaniards do not celebtate Cinco de Mayo, Mexicans do. Here is what Wikipedia has to say about it: "Cinco de Mayo (pronounced [ˈsiŋko̞ ðe̞ ˈma̠ʝo̞] in Mexico, Spanish for “Fifth of May”) is a yearly celebration held on May 5, which commemorates the anniversary of Mexico’s victory over the Second French Empire at the Battle of Puebla in 1862…." And the article adds this: “More popular in the United States than Mexico,34 Cinco de Mayo has become associated with the celebration of Mexican-American culture.” The Spaniards don’t give a fig about this one.

    I imagine Brady spends 8-12 hours a week studying “film” without it being in his contract. But then his work ethic is beyond reproach as is his success on the field.

    Just curious. Were you as worried about getting Trump the help he clearly needed? If Biden has dementia, I have no idea what you would call whatever it was that Trump had. I can listen to Biden and know what he is talking about. Trump? Not so much.

    I haven’t seen a TV with a hue control in 30-40 years. Is Granddad really so cheap that they have a TV that old?

    Do you like your cell phone? It is powered by a lithium ion battery. The guy who invented it has recently developed improvements to it that will increase its capacity and reduce the recharge time. Oh, and by the way, he is a researcher at the University of Texas at the young age of 95. Age really is just a number.

    Yes and he is in better physical shape than I am and I’m six years younger than he is. He also is still mentally alert and able to put together sentences that make sense. His only problem is a stutter which he has had since childhood. Hardly a sign of mental decline.

    Your use of the term “Sleepy Joe” shows your huge starting bias. I think it takss a huge stretch to see this as being about President Biden. Unless you have the builtin bias to start with that will take you there.
