Not really, but I've started watching Game of Thrones from the beginning. I don't think I watched a complete season, ever. Only really watched when I sat down while Tracy was watching. It's good. I'm also following along with The Ringer's Binge Mode, with a podcast per episode. Somewhat helpful. I'm currently in the middle of Season 3. Donated blood yesterday, Power Red, so was a little tired. Slept early. No bike riding yesterday or today. Next ride in to work would be Friday (working from home tomorrow). It's been hot out. Hopefully it's not the trend for this summer. Don't think I'd like it much. Definitely see at least a 10 degree difference between the 3rd floor and the basement. Hasn't gotten bad enough that I go into the basement yet (except after I biked home on Monday, then I did). Upgraded the home network to all Ubiquiti UniFi gear, moved to a Ubiquiti UniFi Security Gateway, Ubiquiti UniFi Switch 24, Ubiquiti UniFi Switch 8, and a Ubiquiti UniFi AC In-Wall to cover my side of the master bedroom. Tempted to get a Ubiquiti UniFi Cloud Key. But allows me to use the UniFi app on iOS to view network status. Interesting that the 2 access points on the 3rd floor aren't auto negotiated to GigE. Wonder if it's a distance thing. Also, 5GHz WiFi makes a difference when streaming video. I tried watching Game 4 of the NBA Finals, but gave up because of commercials, and timeouts, and official reviews. I didn't even watch Game 5 until I got the notification that the game was over. My hot take on game 4? All the fouls/official review was like unofficial timeouts and plenty of time to rest for the Cavs stars. No chance they would get tired down the stretch because of all the stoppage of play. What's the actual minutes spent playing vs. length of game? Anyway, I'm happy the Warriors won. My hot take on KD? What other team would have maximized his skills?

Found out my parents got and accepted an offer on the house in Woodstock. Still want to get out there just before closing and do the walk through and walk around when it's empty and there's nothing there. Crazy. Happy for my parents too, got pretty close to expected, which is always nice. Last weekend went to Montrose beach with the kids on Saturday, then the water feature at Weisman Park on Sunday, along with Soupbox for lunch, since Lucy wanted hot soup on an 80 degree day. Go figure. Put Brooks Cambium Bar Tape and matching Brooks Cambium C17 both in Slate on the Miyata 610. Monday got a Sackville TrunkSack Small in grey for the front rack and put a double water bottle holder off the saddle. So yeah, the Miyata is in a good spot, except for the rear brakes squealing. Tried cleaning it, but that didn't work. Need to try something else. Bike does need a good overall cleaning too. Lucy's done with 1st grade, last day was yesterday. Already on season 5 of Game of Thrones. Way ahead of the Binge Mode podcasts. I guess after I finish I'll go back to Alias. Kinda want to do Chuck again as well, but I'm guessing I'll be all spyed out after Alias.
