Good morning. A few notes that I wanted to record for this lovely fall Friday.
- Near record warm has passed us and we’re back to normal cold fall. Should be great for saunaing.
- Made a fantastic oat milk cortado this morning. Using regular Oatly blend, normally I use the Barista’s version, but today’s turned out fantastic. I’d say top five of all time home made cortados.
- Driving T to school this morning he commented that so many people have black jackets. I replied saying they were a popular color. That brought up the question of what does “popular” mean. After I explained that it’s something that a lot of people like, for example Christmas, ice cream, soccer are all things that are popular because many people like them. When I asked him if he could think of something that was also popular, a few seconds passed and he replied “I know something that is popular for adults”. I asked what and he said “relaxing”. He got that right.
- The Armchair Media Explorer has been slowly gaining traffic among the fans of the popular podcast Armchair Expert. People love it, but I really need someone with a large following to help promote it. So this morning I emailed Dax, Monica and their producer Rob in hopes that they read my emails. Having them Tweet (X?), Instagram it or just promote it would go a long ways for the platform.
- Started a new project I’m calling the Radio Station Project. It’s going to contain a lot of radio station data and some nice data visualizations. More to come after I can collect some data.
