  1. Happy Birthday, Justin!
  2. Tea and Biccies with the Brits* * Technically Tea and Joanne's peanut butter and chocolate chip oat breakfast bars, and cookies, with a collection of hybrid / Dual Citizens, but you get the idea.
  3. Look at Mr Moneybags with his "premium" version, Rather than the plebian ad supported tier . Maybe they should collaborate with BMW on the "delete badge" option.
  4. Chicken Mole Enchiladas And Fish (Tacos) 'N' "Chips" At https://www.elmolinocentral.com/ Very Tasty!
  5. Applied for (expedited) Passports At the first "local" appointment we could find. Where an old school post office employee handled our application and thanked us for doing our homework and having all the necessary paperwork / documents to hand. Had them take the photos so there would be no doubt on the acceptability. Interesting that they have to explicitly state https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/passports/how-apply/photos.html That selfies and social media filters are not acceptable for passport photos. Now comes the wait.
  6. A world exclusive interview (well a land line phone conversation, actually) with Kate Bush. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/m0018gqv via: https://www.theverge.com/2022/6/23/23180083/stranger-things-kate-bush-running-up-that-hill Because: also mentioned in interview ...
  7. DOES IT SOUND BRICKWALLED? https://magicvinyldigital.net/2022/06/18/dire-straits-money-for-nothing-review-lp-cd-qobuz-1988-remastered-2022/
  8. So there's no truth that it's allegedly an acronym? or Urban Dictionary is not to be believed?
  9. You mean one of these exciting territories?
  10. Happy Birthday, Kerry! They have Bacon in Chicago! https://foursquare.com/top-places/chicago/best-places-bacon https://chicago.eater.com/maps/best-bacon-breakfast-items-chicago
  11. There were 3 post acquiring citizenship action items (in no particular order) https://risccmke.org/en/after-naturalization/ * Inform the SSA of your new citizenship status. Done. Surprised that USCIS and SSA don't do this automatically, joined up government and all that, but was done in under 5 minutes once my check in number was called. Maybe it's another check and balance? * Register to Vote. Done. Can be done online here in CA. Straightforward. No overt signs of voter suppression. Found the idea of having to chose a political party strange. https://my.lwv.org/california/article/how-choose-political-party-when-registering-vote Given that voting is supposed to be a secret ballot, And that the "Father of the country", George Washington foresaw problems with them. https://www.mountvernon.org/george-washington/the-first-president/political-parties/ Time to read his farewell address. Maybe I could take the approach of an ex-work-colleague, who, while being a gay San Francisco liberal democrat, registered as a Republican, so he could see what they ("the enemy") were up to. Thus he could vote for the most unelectable candidate in the primaries, and would share the contents of their talking points , or campaign contribution begging letters that they mailed to him, with us. That was enlightening. * Apply for a passport. One of the unintended consequences of becoming a citizen is that we are "trapped" in the country, until we have a Passport in our hands. With a green card we could re-enter the country, but we had to hand that back in. So no Passport, no legal re-entry. We have to apply in person at a Post Office for a new passport, and then wait 8-11 weeks (or 5-7 weeks if expedited) based on the current State Department processing times. No immediate passport appointments locally because: reasons (COVID?) But we did manage to find an appointment next week in Sonoma (Boyes Hot Springs!) as the earliest accessible appointment - so a day in wine country, shame! In the meantime I guess we are "stuck" with Hawaii as our deferred travel vacation choice for now.
  12. Stop me if you've heard this before ... Boat Bridge City But this time I came home with a hybrid American wife! What a country!
