Perfect score.

Just ordered this one. I enjoyed Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman. This is the background of the collaboration of Amos Tversky and Daniel Kahneman.

The historical section at The National Museum of African American History and Culture is breathtaking: including a statue of Thomas Jefferson standing in front of a stack of bricks—each brick with the name of a slave owned by Jefferson.

Chuck Berry's Cadillac and Michael Jordan from the entertainment and sports sections.

Took a cab to the Lincoln Memorial. Wanted to be there at night.

JFK at the Kennedy Center.

Another computer issue, my windows 10 wi-fi connection was stuck in airplane mode and would not turn off. A fix I found on my phone, since the desktop could not connect to the internet, did the trick. Go to network settings, then find your internet adapter, click properties and then turn off the save power function. Whew ! Everything back to normal. I am pretty good at research and DIY fixes. Frustrating that these issues crop up with both the phone and the desktop. Thankfully, there are a lot of answers if you try to find them.

I don't start listening to Holiday Music until December. I have quite a collection. My favorites: The Nutcracker, "Wonderful Christmastime" by Paul McCartney and The Christmas Song (Merry Christmas To You) by Nat King Cole.

My gifts to myself, ordered on Thanksgiving,arrived by Monday. I've made my Christmas gift list and already bought three gifts.

Almost finished, now I know what the meaning of "Free man in Paris" is about. Robbie Robertson and his wife were there with Mitchell and producer David Geffen.
