  1. https://www.wesh.com/article/florida-mom-shot-on-zoom-call/37952730 Cliff’s notes- Woman on live zoom call shot dead by toddler. People on zoom call 911, say they saw her bloody and fall backwards. Boyfriend (father of toddler) arrested for having the gun in house illegally. Gun was kept in a Paw Patrol (cartoon) bag, with a bullet in chamber “ready to go”. Also, states that toddler likes to play with cap guns. holy hell the stupid is strong with this one. Unfortunately for the dead mom.
  2. Welp… that sucked. Some quick thoughts going into the off season- -Rojas is now gone. i do think he will be a good manager at some point, but he wasn’t ready last year when he got called into it to replace Beltran. Someone had to pay for the way this season went. - While I think Baez is a great player, I don’t think he should be a priority. McNeil had a down season, but I think he’s adequate to put at 2B and he’s under team control and cheap. - i think we need to spend money on starting pitching. Bring back Stro, Qualifying Offer to Syndergaard. Add another top end starter. MeGill and Peterson are young and cheep, can be depth on the back end of the rotation. I also think Rich Hill can be brought back, he isn’t blowing anything past hitters but he was pretty consistent. - Aaron Loup needs to be brought back. - Lugo was a shell of himself after the injury in spring training, and showed no signs of improvement. He’s gone imo. -I think you can bring back Conforto on a short term “prove it” deal. 1 year, 16 mil. This gets us a chance to re- visit after 2022, and also keeps us from having to sign a big money deal. - Cano is back on our books next year. (Uggh). 24 mil for 2022 and 2023. I honestly would rather they come to a buyout number, but hey, we can always use a bat. If he still has anything left at his age and off the juice. - Nimmo and Alonso both played great defense this year, along with the most consistent offense on the team. I’m good with Nimmo back in CF next year. Above all else, we need a long term solution to our front office and manager roles. It would also be nice if they are not rapey alcoholics. 🤷‍♂️
  3. I’m in the same boat as you. I remembered an admission rep told me “fall” of this year, but no specific date. According to this link , the Fafsa for 2022-23 doesn’t open until 10/1. Deadlines vary by school/state, but federal deadline looks to be next June.
  4. I just read LOTR for the first time this past spring. I liked it, didn’t love it. Worth it to check off my list, but some times in just trudged along and I wasn’t real excited to open it.
  5. Oh boy, I hope he doesn’t see this! 🤣🤣🤣
  6. No idea on GCU either, sorry. But your son and mine sound somewhat on the same paths. My son (hs senior) has played baseball for most of his life, but knows that even D3 is probably not an option for him, so he’s looking at IM (club) baseball as his route to keep playing the game. It’s low on his list when choosing schools, but he’d love tge chance to keep playing. Right now is his biggest issue is that he’d love to be 1-4 hours away from home, loves the campus of South Florida (1.5 hours away). Also liked Florida Gulf Coast (3 hours away). But…. He wants to major in Forensic Science, and UCF has a top 10 Forensics program. Unfortunately UCF is literally 3 miles from our house. good luck!
  7. I really enjoyed it. At first i was hesitant because so much of it came from one perspective (unlike World War Z, which had many different stories intertwined around the main story). In the end, it worked because the story was centered in a small community in which the main storyteller interacts with all of the key characters, while sprinkling in some external interviews to round everything out. Solid characters and good story overall.
  8. Finished “Coffin Dancer” (second in the Lincol Rhyme series). Loved it, and will definitely continue on in that series. Taking a turn to something different- Devolution by Max Brooks (World War Z). About 1/4 way into it and so far I’m liking it. It’s in the same style as WWZ ( journal entries, interviews that piece together the story) and I wish that there were more varied points of view, as thus far most of it has come from one narrative.
  9. Wasn’t sure what to read next, went with “ The Bone Collector “ by Jeffrey Deaver. (1st in the Lincoln Rhyme series) I blew through it and loved it. Any insight on the rest of the series? I think theres 12 total? Worth continuing on?
  10. Finished “Project Hail Mary” by Andy Weir. If you liked The Martian, I highly recommend it. Plenty of humorous one-liners mixed with sci-fi tech.
  11. Mike Howe, former lead singer of Metal Church.
  12. Finished the Wayward Pines trilogy- loved it! On to “Project Hail Mary” by Andy Weir. (The Martian). It has me hooked 30 pages in.
  13. And proceed to hit 7 home runs to win 15-11 in 11 innings. Despite two horrible defensive outings in the last 2 games with lots of “lol” tweets, the Mets won both games with their bats, which hasn’t been the case all year.
