I’ve been watching clips of the revival of “One Day At A Time”, which premiered back in 2017 and was canceled after four seasons (three on Netflix, one of Pop!) in December. The show is really good. I don’t know why the show was canceled, but I look forward to catching up on the seasons.

Todd Grinnell plays Schneider. In this incarnation he owns the building. Admittedly, Todd is quite feast for the eyes. Enjoy!

Back Roads.

The weather is not favorable for VFR flight this weekend. VFR stands for “Visual Flight Rules”. This is means we can see where we’re flying, as opposed to IFR or “Instrument Flight Rules”. Under IFR we’re flying mostly on instruments. I am not an instrument pilot. Yet. Goals.

Since we were grounded today, we went for one of our Saturday drives. West of us they’ve seen a lot more snow and ice than we’ve seen here in The Windy City. We drove on the prairie around DeKalb County, which is about 60 miles to our west. I captured some photos along the way.


In 2020 I wrote a blog entry at least once a day. Actually, once in a great while I’d write two on a day and then back date one of them because I didn’t get the chance to finish that first blog entry on that intended day. So yes, there were blog entries on every single day in 2020.

There were probably way more blog entries than readers. Personal blogs of this nature are really not the “in” thing anymore.

This blog turns 20 years old this year. My first blog entry was in the latter half of 2001. I can’t believe this site has been around for that long. It seems like just a short time ago I figured out how to move from raw HTML files to MovableType and then later to WordPress.

Many folks are hoping 2021 turns out to be a magic cure-all for everything the ails the planet right now. I just say that 2021 will be only as good as we make it to be. We’ve got to work together to make things better. That being said, I’m still quite excited about the arrival of 2021. Keep moving forward, keep learning, keep striving to make things better.
