I've sort of been busy

The Skyway Bridge
I have not put up a post in the entire month of April. There are a few reasons for that. The main one is that I am trying to take my mind off of how bad the taxi business is in the traditional form. The business is becoming a hybrid form of medical transport precariously dependent on a few eggs in small basket. I have simply lived long enough to know that is an untenable situation.

I am not, however, looking a gift horse in the mouth (whatever that means) for without it, it would be chips out. I am at least able now to have not such a myopic view of everything and I'm adapting a long view of the situation. Hence, the image of the Skyway Bridge.

I crossed that bridge six times in one day when I lucked out at and caught a double Bradenton run from St. Pete. The charge included deadhead and that worked out pretty good. Believe me, I never got anything like that when I was driving traditional taxi. So I am not able to complain too much.

I am coming out of my funk and slacking off on my chess games on which I need to. I am currently rated almost an expert with a 1975 ELO rating which puts me in the top 99.4% of all chess  players in the world. The ones left above me are IMs and Grand Masters and that is going to be tough nut to crack.

  1. No matter how crappy anything is, at least Trump is president and not the crap weasel. Imagine living in France today and having lost the one last chance to stop the destruction.
