This is a good week to “shelter in place” for two reasons. First, weather patterns seem to have mistaken the middle and eastern parts of the U.S. for Siberia. Second, Super Bowl LIII (53 in modern numbers) hype has started on all media platforms.
Winter is not yet here (December 21) but snow is. While “snow” and “southeast” may be alliterative, it’s unseasonal, especially when two feet of white stuff fall in various parts of the Carolinas (North and South).
Counting down the days until you get some time off for Thanksgiving? Those of us in the U.S. are certainly yearning for a break. Even if that means you have to be nice to people you didn’t choose to hang with, as in family.
Have you rigged up dancing witches and staggering zombies to scare trick or treaters with IoT motion detectors for Halloween yet? How about a candy-cam over the bowl to catch your spouse dipping into the stash? No? Just wait a year or two, and these things will be on the market.
Short week last week for many of us lucky enough not to have to labor on Labor Day as the summer gives way to the mad dash event-filled sprint to Thanksgiving. School is in full swing! Football started! Serious movies appear at the multiplex!
Enjoying the pool? Enjoying the beach? Nah, we’re all working too much and worrying even more. If only we had some magic technology that could monitor our life’s busy aggravation points and report when things need attention.
