I am SO tired of hearing about the musical Hamilton. How long before everyone has seen it?

I've only seen Hamilton on sawbucks (apparently, soon to be replaced) -- never heard him sing, hum, or otherwise be musical.

Old radio equipment
The folks at the University of Nebraska are getting rid of a bunch of old broadcasting equipment and will give to anyone who wants it and can remove it on their own, at their own expense (Deadline: May 20). For more info, contact: Haley Bush: hbush2@unl.edu 402-472-3341 or

For you nature lovers. 
@Gotham3 @tmtn I'm confused. Doesn't this show a bird's track on the ground which then takes off? (bunnys have broken tracks not continuous). Terhi NurmikkoFuller · Apr 7. Terhi NurmikkoFuller @tmtn. @MWilcoxson @Gotham3 Now you say that, yes, I think you might be right. How disappointing.

This is a bunny hopping along in deep snow, and in a flash of feathers, yummy yummy dinner.
You can see the oval impression of the rabbit's body, and the deeper leg holes. The bird landed on him with talons like a bear trap. Just the tips of the wings brushed the snow.

From the web, you can check your technician's name, see a photo, and track the vehicle as it approaches you. It all makes total sense if you think about it; Dish has a huge fleet of techs throughout the country, and this is yet another task they can handle to complement satellite installations and whatever else.
Dish is getting into smartphone repairs. The satellite provider has announced that beginning today, anyone in the United States can request an on-site screen fix or battery replacement, and Dish...

"The price of intelligence as we now know it is chronic anxiety." -- Alan Watts
Introduction
My interests include: Advertising, Apple, Art, Blogging, Books, Dogs, Gadgets & Apps, Journalism, Media, Movies, Philosophy, Science, Social Media and Books (http://www.librarything.com/catalog/smays)

Mom was a farm girl. Dad was a city boy. The war was over and they met in St. Louis. I was born in 1948 in Poplar Bluff, Missouri, and grew up in Kennett (about an hour to the south). Dad was a “radio announcer” and mom worked for the “welfare department.” Job titles that –like my youth–vanished years ago.

A little piece of shrapnel from the Baby Boom, I watched a lot of TV. In the early 50′s I sat two feet from the Motorola, staring at the Indian-head test pattern until the afternoon programming got underway. The spirit of Norman Rockwell hovered over me through a near-perfect childhood.

The Beatles released I WANT TO HOLD YOUR HAND in the US just after Christmas in 1963 and it a very big deal by February of ’64. Hard to imagine a better time to be a high school sophomore. We weren’t paying much attention to Viet Nam, yet.

By the time I started college in the fall of 1966, getting and keeping a draft deferment was top of mind. I quickly switched my major from Business to Theater. Guys were coming back from Viet Nam and bringing good drugs and great music and protesting was catching on, even in the Midwest.

I was part of the first draft lottery and drew number 210, just low enough to be dangerous. Following graduation in 1970, I goofed off all summer before –at my father’s suggestion– entering law school at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. I attended classes and kept my deferment until Nixon froze the draft (in December of 1970) at lottery number 195. I quit law school the following week, just before finals.

In the spring of 1971, I went to work for the U.S. Postal Service as a Postal Inspector. After three months of training in D.C. I was sent to Pendleton, Oregon, where I audited small post offices in Oregon and Washington. I counted stamps and money orders for almost a year and investigated exploded rural mail boxes (a federal crime). Like law school, not what I had in mind.

In early ’72 I returned to the Midwest and hung around Memphis for a few months before returning to Kennett in early summer. In July, I started working at KBOA on the overnight shift and found my true calling. For the next dozen years I spun records and MC’d the Little Miss Christmas Belle Pageant.

In March, 1973, I met Barb at Tommy’s North-End Cafe and fell in love. We dated for six years and married in 1978.

In June, 1984, we moved to Jefferson City, Missouri, to work for Learfield Communications, retiring in 2012 where I handled affiliate relations for the company’s various radio networks until the late '90s when I began annoying management and co-workers about "that Internet thing."

UPDATE

I retired from Learfield on December 31, 2012. What’s that? Twenty-eight years? Some would say I had “retired in place” a couple of years earlier and there’s more than a bit of truth in that. Always thought I’d die in harness but became intrigued with the idea of doing nothing. Despite what you might have heard, it can be done.

I’ve done a bit of traveling but don’t much care for it. I’ll do it if there’s someone(s) interesting on the other end. Getting there is not half the fun for me. 

These days I spend my mornings online at a local coffee shop. After lunch it’s home to play Red Ball with Hattie and Lucy (Goldens); a long walk; a nap; meditation; a little ukulele practice; some reading and the day is shot. The current plan is to stay with this routine until perfected.
