Re: Random Thoughts About Thoughts Random

Haven't played much since my kids have gotten older. Getting 18 in has become increasingly more difficult. I don't often have 6 hours to spare, (door to door).

Re: Podcasts

For some reason, this pod spends at least the first hour talking about the Japanese soldier who continued to fight the war in the jungles of the Philippines for 29 years, and not my grandfather. 1 out of 5 stars.

There's probably a 75 percent chance Lin Manuel Miranda is an EGOT winner by march. I'm assuming he has the best shot at song from the Moana movie. PEGOT if you count the Pulitzer.

BeIN and 90 in 30 are great (especially if you like Barcelona or Madrid). Their app and web player are a bit lacking, and access to the channel is one of the things I miss about cutting the cord.
