70 degrees this morning, 94% humidity
Beautiful day yesterday, sunny most of day
Exercise yesterday, 27:53 minute walk, pace of 15:48 minutes or 12 seconds better than my goal!
Temperature started off at 63 degrees, a little cool for my walk, (at least at this time of year!, but I dressed for it.
This is the time of year I like to consciously enjoy the long days of light, since the daylight seems to shorten all too fast!
Due to the continuing delivery problems with the local (metropolitan) newspaper, I have graduated more and more to reading the paper “on-line”. I am at the point I should cancel the print subscription, but I refuse to do so, since it seems they are trying to force me to go “on-line” with their extremely poor delivery.
If I decide to cancel the print subscription since I am tired of it getting here at 8:30 or as late as 9:30 a.m. (or never), I will just cancel the entire subscription rather than feel like I was manipulated into buying only the on-line version.
Actually the Wall Street Journal isn’t a good on-line newspaper, although it has an excellent iPad version. The local metropolitan newspaper has “print replica” that is fairly easy to read on-line and I can easily ignore the junk news (entertainment, sports etc.) so I read it much faster.
Generally, I have found I read an on-line newspaper a lot less than I do a physical newspaper.
While in theory I read on-line magazines rather than physical magazines, I rarely read an on-line magazine (or any magazine) anymore other than for specific reasons or specific information. I don’t “browse’ on-line magazines.
Probably this is a function of spending more time on other activities as much as reading magazines or newspapers on-line, just like I am reading fewer books.
As I have mentioned before, I really don’t like videos (such as short news/entertainment videos. I think they take too much time and I almost never watch a video. I guess if you watch a video you are either by yourself or using headphones!
I really don’t understand the popularity of videos, but I guess a lot of people do. I can’t stand to sit through them, they take way too much time and usually have little information.
I should like instructional videos, but I don’t. I’d much rather have a “step by step” printed instructional manual.
That’s it for now, Tuesday, June 25, 2019.
