You're already 3/4 of the way there, the second one is a booster. Good job, everyone! I saw in the NY Times this morning that over the weekend was the first fully-filled event at Madison Square Garden, where the Foo Fighters performed. If they were good enough to see off David Letterman on the occasion of his last show they're good enough to escort New York City back to full-speed-ahead concerts. The article said it was before a "fully-vaccinated audience." That ought to temp a few people to go ahead and get the vaccine.

Trash went out to the curb early today since I missed the last couple of weeks. And now that it's really hot they start coming by really early to finish their rounds before the hottest part of the day.

I finally figured out how to turn off the new Windows/Microsoft "News and Interests" icon thingie that was showing up on the bottom right toolbar. Don't you just love it when they foist new settings on you? That was the best feeling declutter of the morning. The other computer declutter I've been working on is Dropbox. I use the free version of it and it is now threatening me daily with the message that it is nearly full and I should upgrade. I need to stop paying for services, not add another one. I'll turn off Flicker's paid account this year - every time you turn it on there are the lovely photos that convince you to pay, but I don't use it except for backup, and Google and Dropbox and Microsoft already do that. I have seriously too many photos backed up around here. So I'm pitching out big clumps of photos from Dropbox. (I periodically load phone photos into the computer via cable also.)
