Friday Varia and Quick Hits

Yesterday was the first day of the year that I actually felt HOT here in North Dakotaland and I suppose that means summer is upon us. Today, there’s a chance we’ll see triple digits and I’ve lugged the window-unit air conditioner (or, as we call them, egg-nishnah) to the second floor window.

Fortunately, there will be plenty of opportunities to keep cool this weekend as the NBA playoff roll on (apparently without Joel Embiid), the Phils face the Nationals, the F1 guys head to Baku, and the NASCARlers go to wine country. Plus, my summer research and writing schedule is coming into focus; so, there’ll be plenty of reasons for me to stay inside and chill out.

I hope your summertime is likewise rounding into shape and that you enjoy this modest gaggle of quick hits and varia:
