Starting Music for March 16th, 2022

Aloha world and happy Everything You Do Is Right Day! It’s a day to be OK with mistakes, because we’re all human. Here in the Hall of Fame city located in NE Ohio (USA), it is Wednesday, Mar. 16th –the 75th day of the year. On this National Freedom of Information/Artichoke Hearts/Panda Day, we are starting with sunny skies. Following are the weather stats from 8:15 a.m.


FYI, the Goodyear Theater is having a pre-sale from 10 AM today until 10 PM tomorrow for Gordon Lightfoot (“The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald”) for Saturday, May 14th, at 8 PM (passcode: SUNDOWN).

Forecast temps for yesterday were 39 and 58.


ASTRONOMY

Side note: We have another incoming CME from the sun projected to possibly deliver a glancing blow to the Earth’s magnetic field on the 17th. Details at spaceweather.com

ONLINE SECURITY

I opt out of all unnecessary cookies, don’t do those ‘what kind of animal are you?’-type surveys, don’t ‘like’ posts my friends/family share if I can’t find/don’t trust the source, and avoid most of the ‘big media’ sites. Nonetheless, I still have to remove ‘big tech’ trackers every morning:


–and this is just my PC; it does not include my mobile devices!



THOUGHTS

On this date in 1987, I worked my 1st day at my 2nd employer in Texas: Life Design Systems (LDS). This was my first experience with working 2nd shift, and I gotta say, I’m not a fan. Mainly because I’m an early morning person. Sure, I might be grumpy when I first get out of bed, but that is often the result of awakening from a good dream.


My roommate and I both worked here, helping to fabricate the manual pulmonary breathers that EMT workers use to help those suffering with breathing issues, often after a fire. We started out trimming the rubber after it came out of the oven molds, and eventually worked our way up to the ‘coveted’ (higher pay) oven operator roles. We eventually wound up on 1st shift, helping out with final assembly and inspection.


During our time here, we managed to destroy 2 vehicles (mine, then his) due to our lax maintenance, as engines don’t like to run without coolant/oil. We both knew better, but we were dumb, young, and.. well.. too busy partying. Despite living and working together, we were good enough friends that there was never really any friction. Of course, one of us was usually out on a date or we were out gallivanting with friends in the evenings and on the weekends, so that helped. Plus, he was in the National Guard.


This was also my first real experience with non-Americans. I got a taste of the Hispanic culture at Kmart, and was surprised to learn how family-oriented most of them are. I also felt a bit of kinship, as I had experience with Catholicism, which most of them practiced. Here at LDS, I met my first people originally from such places as Nigeria, Indonesia, Pakistan, India, and more. We all enjoyed each other’s company and had many laughs, forming or own family-type of bonds. The surprising thing was that we never really formed any cliques.


TODAY’S ELECTRONIC TRACK

“The Glitch Waltz (Original Mix)” by SirensCeol (I believe it is pronounced ‘siren’s call’). I really like the modern twist he gives this classical piece. It starts out sounding like a perfectly calm melody, but you better hold on to your hats! The drop comes in hard with layered growls and so many layers of sound, it’s hard to keep up with. The beat is constant and the melody comes back, sprinkled throughout the track, before the sudden ending.

FINANCIALS

Everything that I’m watching saw mostly positive results at the close of yesterday’s markets. (NOTE: “overall” below refers to: since I’ve been tracking daily; mid-January for MTCH and T; mid-February for VMEO).


TKR – temporary replacement for MTCH


The Minds coins cryptocurrency (based on Ethereum) was also up this morning, approximately +$0.07 to ~$1.20/coin; -$1.67/coin overall


Check out Stockpile for traditional shares because you can order by a dollar amount instead of whole shares and build from there.


THE WRAP/MUSICAL START

Well, that’s a wrap. I’ll be starting the day off with the next song in my Spotify playlist (Randomly Cool Big List No.1), “Best I Can” by Queensrÿche. Originally, this was the 1st track on the album ‘Empire’ (1990). Former lead singer Geoff Tate said, "It was a situation of us writing about handicapped people and their determination to reach their goals. A lot of people really embraced that song, people with serious disadvantages, and we are happy about that as it was a rallying song to get behind of -and kind of inspired them to seek their goals and move in the right direction."


Remember, Fear is the Mind-Killer, Don’t Panic, Keep Your Head Right with Ball, and May God be gracious to you and bless you and make His face shine upon you.
