how are things by in your neck of the woods?

Some of the activities are back on for our kids, and have been for about a month now. My son is back at BJJ - but it is modified, no grappling or wrestling until at least mid august. Masks optional. he goes 3 times a week now since rock climbing did not restart yet. The BJJ place will have 2, week-long camp sessions starting next week and we signed him up for both to get them out of the house.

My daughter's dance class is also back on - masks optional. Horseback riding is on as well, but due to her arm we are doing another week off from that.

public swimming pools are closed - which sucks. Good thing we have some white privileged friends with swimming pools :D

He is racist.  He is delusional.  He is dangerous.  He doesn't give a shit about the real problems happening in this country.  I don't need to listen to CNN or MSNBC to form those opinions.  I have watched him spew vitriol from many a podium directly, without commentary, and that's more than enough for me to form an opinion.  My OWN opinion.  The man is a monster.  A liar.  A bigot.  There's nothing in that speech that could change that opinion.

I tried to watch his speech at the Space X launch.  I have tried to see what people see in him.  I have really made an attempt to give him any respect.  He has not earned it.  Period.

I really hope you're trolling now.  I refuse to watch that shit and I've heard enough about that speech to know that it's chocked full of lies and divisiveness.

I'm not trolling. And you heard that where, on CNN or MSNBC? Give it a shot, Ben, and make your own opinion

I have not seen it in the theater but my daughter did (somebody donated free trips for all 8th graders in our area to go see the musical in San Francisco). She and her sister are both huge fans and listen to the music all the time.

So when they found out it was on Disney+ they made the whole family stay up until midnight refreshing the page listing until it was available. Then we watched it until 3am as a family.

I think I dozed off a couple times but was able to see most of it. We definitely enjoyed it. It helped to have subtitles on especially so late at night when my brain wasn't fully functional. :) Lafayette/Jefferson was great and King George's small parts were pretty funny. Lin-Manual Miranda obviously did a great job creating the show, although I wonder how it would have been different with a stronger performer in the lead role.

Have any of you guys seen this Broadway smash hit?
I have not, but the original cast recording it going to be on Disney+ starting tomorrow.  I'm kinda excited to see it.

Anyone else?

I dig it.  It's weird that it is technically a 27" screen like my previous one but a bit bigger.  If I had known it was going to be this big I would have went for 2k.  But for how I use it, it works nicely.

I sit at a 45 degree angle to my desks.  Usually legs on the left of the desk at home and keyboard in my lap.
