Quick Thoughts: Voltron (Season Two)

The girls and I are ten or eleven episodes into the new season of Voltron: Legendary Defender.  To say the very least, we are enjoying it quite a bit.

A few quick thoughts are below, hopefully without too many spoilers:

5 Things on a Friday: Let's Hope We Make It to Star Wars

It’s kind of a good news, bad news sort of day.  
Bad news: the Son of Satan will be inaugurated later today as 45th President of the United States, beginning a process that will inevitably trigger World War III, the Apocalypse, and possibly the Rapture, depending on whether you believe in those sorts of things.  Even if you don’t, now might be a good time to start reading the Book of Revelations—for near-term investment advice—or to perhaps start praying for the future of humanity.  Your choice.

Swim Workout: Jan 17, 2017

Tough workout last night.  I worked MLK Day, and as a result, this already feels like a long week for all that it’s only Wednesday morning.  They’ve also raised the temperature at the YMCA pool, which makes holding a decent pace a significant challenge over time.  
Still, I felt like I got something out of this workout, and as I said earlier in the week, I’m trying to archive more of these workouts for whomever is interested.

The child,
Who always was a child,

She yet is smaller,
And she knows that there is still growing to come,
But she is matured.

She understands you now,
Heck, she talks to you now,
But do you still see a child?

She is tripped sometimes,
Oh, poor baby, you cry.
But she is no longer a baby.

And she hears you now.

My buddy Andy, Captain of the Army Swim Team way back in 1994-5, asked me recently if I'd archived my swimming workouts on this blog.  I realized that I hadn't and that this was an obvious mistake.  One of the principle things you want to do as a blogger is increase the number of ways you archive your posts, so that you can continue to generate hits from your previous work.

This post is therefore the draft version of the SWIM tab, which will serve as my archive of swimming workouts going forward.

Weekend Swimming Workouts: Jan. 14 & 15, 2017

I wasn't going to write these workouts up, but if I'm archiving workout now, I suppose I might as well include these in the archives.  Coming off of Tuesday's blistering work, I've been tired.  Still, Saturday's workout was mostly aerobic work, but it was great.  Today's was a struggle.
