What I Learned This Week: #151

Monday, June 29 – Sunday, July 5 The Week in Confinement Returns: This week felt very similar to how I felt during the height of the Confinement, but a little sadder.

What I Learned This Week: #106

Monday, June 3 – Sunday, June 9 The Week in Years: I went to a 100 year Birthday party this week. Frank was born in 1920 as the Great Flu Epidemic was winding down.

Sunday, April 8  – Saturday, April 14   The Week in Peanuts: As I write this, my Cincinnati Reds are 2 and 13. Gosh, that hurts. At least I can enjoy Reds-branded peanuts, or so I thought.

What I Learned This Week #13

Sunday, August 6 – Saturday, August 12 + the 13th This Week In Fresh and Easy: As you can see from the main picture above, keepin’ a public toilet clean is “Fresh and Easy.” Just attach a tube to the Fresh and Easy dispenser and put it in the toilet where women can pee onContinue reading “What I Learned This Week #13”

What I Learned This Week #12

Sunday July, 30 – Saturday, August 5   This Week in The Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra: On Sunday, the CSO offered a free concert as their kickoff to their European Tour. Free concerts always mean “greatest hits” or crowd-pleasers. So there was Gershwin’s An American in Paris, Berstein’s Candide Overture, Dvorak’s New World Symphony, and the fastContinue reading “What I Learned This Week #12”
