Forming your own Twitter page aggregator

I wanted to provide a list of my favorite Twitter “follows” I did that here: all I did was to list the twitter addresses.
And WordPress created images of what was on each page and updates it! One benefit: I even listed the twitter address of someone who blocked me and…yes, her page is also visible.

That is a decent way to not miss your favorites, at least if you look from a computer (as opposed to a smart phone).

BU basketball: rolling at home

It was a grind. Yes, BU lead 30-22 at the half, but Southern kept attacking inside and hustling..and cutting the lead over and over again. SIU cut it to 61-60 with 1:04 to go, but BU made a lay up and went 5/5 from the line in the final minute to win 68-62. Though SIU shot 2 more free throws that Bradley did, they hit only 65 percent of them (13-20) whereas BU hit 15-18. It was a grind.

But BU found a way to win. Now when they can do that in front of a hostile crowd…they will move from “middle of the MVC” to the top.

Now the women are 3-0 in conference, with all wins coming on the road (one against a 2-12 team, one vs. a 6-6 team, one vs. an 8-7 team) and 9-5 overall. They have two home games this weekend (against 500’ish teams Southern Illinois and Missouri State) and have an excellent chance to get to 5-0.

President of sh***y people: Head Deplorable

Ok, we are getting used to this:

When the discussion turned to African nations, the people with knowledge of the conversation added, Mr. Trump asked why he would want โ€œall these people from shithole countries,โ€ adding that the United States should admit more people from places like Norway.

Remember, this is in a meeting with Senators and the like.

The problem: a sizable minority of people in this country probably approves of such remarks.

Sure, some countries are wealthier than others, some immigrants are better educated than others and some are smarter than others. And yes, it makes sense to have a mix of immigrants.

But this is NOT how I want my country to be represented. The President is supposed to be speaking for all of us and not just his precious “deplorables”.

Workout notes: weird. again my warm up (on the treadmill) was challenging; 1.5 miles in 19 minutes, 1 minute run, 1 walk.
Track (lane 2) 8:50 (4:26/4:24)
walk 5 more laps
3.1 mile course plus a bit more outside. (slow)

The 8:50 mile just about killed me…I am out of shape (yes, 1 week after blood donation)
