2019 Summer June 25 Tuesday

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.
