Extra notes: In case I didn't mention it in an earlier log, the season-two finale of Cobra Kai was--literally--an ass-kicker. I'm still thinking of it days later!

The series has an 88% rating at Rotten Tomatoes. That's quite impressive. If you haven't started watching it, do. It's worth YouTube's subscription fee (which is fairly nominal) all by itself.

We're going to Medford next Friday to replace our car's windshield, which is cracked. By way of Medford we'll be stopping at Cave Junction and touring the local holes in the ground, which are reported to be pretty awesome. That's Thursday. We're staying overnight via some AirBnB bungalow. That, along with the caves, is also a first. Aside from my daily fractal art, I won't be posting those days.

I've noticed that the less I read online comments of any kind, the happier I am. Call it willful ignorance. I don't want to know anymore just how cynical, rude, insensitive, and just plain fuckin' nuts people are anymore. I believe I've got a pretty good handle on it now, thanks.

People are free now to comment on this blog. I strictly moderate any comments I receive; and if they aren't to my liking, no matter how innocuous I might believe the commenter to be, I won't approve them. I've had enough with the free-for-all attitude of the Internet. It's toxic as hell.

Of course, very few actually comment here. That's okay. I'm not everyone's cup o' tea. That too I've come, more and more, to accept. We're less than a dozen years from literally destroying our planet due to our ignorance, indifference, consumption, and hate. Hate--what is also known as capitalism. If I'm at odds with the herd, that's a good thing.

I hope you have a nice Friday.
