Making the noodles disappear, Khao Noodle Shop, Dallas, Texas.

Fed gauge on inflation hits 40-year high

I’m old. I remember 1980 very well. This feels exactly like it did then – and that is not a good thing. The big difference is in 1980 I was 23 years old, had no responsibilities, and all I had to do was be able to buy a pack of ramen noodles and I could get through the day. That’s not true now.


LA opened a fancy new bridge and locals are doing their best to shut it down every night

I’ve been following the story of LA’s 6th street viaduct – at over half a billion dollars it felt a bit overpriced – but it’s a cool attempt at alternate transportation – I love the bike and pedestrian lanes and the views of downtown.

I Hate This

I am old. Still, I keep up, more of less. But I agree with this author – I hate when restaurants give you a QR code rather than a menu. It’s hard to order off a phone – they don’t always work (my work phone blocked QR codes, for example). Sure, use one for long lists like beer or wine, but give me a piece of paper.
