6:30pm: When I became an apartment dweller in 2014, I found myself with a wealth of time and resources. I'd always been very curious about all matters of things, but did not have the time to investigate those things. Now in my new apartment life, I have almost unlimited time on my hands. And pretty much no responsibility to make demands of that time. As each day dawns, I have time to do anything I wish!
When I was about 20 years old, I bought a complete set of the "Encyclopaedia Britannica". The 24 book set was sold with a bookcase including three annual supplements. Cost: About $1,600 which I paid for with a 2 year time contract.
Now I have the internet and Google to do research. I am able to ask Google almost anything and instantly get an answer to my question. Indeed, I now have unlimited resources to investigate anything that sparks my curiosity. Far better than printed reference books like Encyclopaedia Brittanica.
I am very curious about the strange relationship between the banks and the federal government that came to light during the financial crisis of 2007 to 2009. I cannot comprehend the Federal Reserve injecting perhaps 15 trillion dollars into our banking system. I don't understand mortgage backed securities, collaterized debt obligations, credit default swaps and derivatives.
Movies and actors
I'm also fascinated with movies and actors. Very often while watching a movie on my TV using NetFlix, I'll put the movie on hold in order to go online with my MacBook to find out about the movie stars in that movie. Really cool!
9PM: Five Guys Burgers
I just got back from my favorite burger joint. Five Guys! Their burgers are the best. I used to think that In-N-Out Burger made the best burgers. But ever since I tried out Five Guys, I became a convert.
I think that Five Guys must be using ground steak in their burgers!
La Mesa where I live is really a neat area. Tons of good places to eat that are pretty close to my Guava Gardens apartment. The weather in La Mesa is the best. And La Mesa is pretty flat. Good for bike riding,
