There's no there there

Wanted to ditch my Samsung tablet because of issues with Samsung locking me out of the SmartHub app (it works fine on my Pixel phone) but nobody makes an 8" tablet except ASUS and some Chinese/Korean off-brands. ASUS would be great except they don't allow using the SD card to store apps. Idiocy. Huawei has something for $350, I think.

Out late on purpose, traffic is better on Fridays.

Nothing to do at work. Grabbed a roast beef sandwich, should have heated it up. So much noise in the break room - pool table, ping pong, foosball and people just hanging out chatting.

Tried to help NP, but the issues she was seeing were beyond anything we had control over.

Once again, no progress on the lab. Furniture task was handed off yet again. NP tested the network connections and found there were none.

4-ish, moved my car to the one free charger.

6-ish, home, traffic was okay.

Lee bugged me about my bay laurel on the porch needing water. Turned out that the dying plant in the planter was a weed, which I pulled out and tossed. Watered the laurel while I was there, as well as the three Thai lime trees, which all are flowering and bearing fruit. One of them I had cut back to almost nothing because it had some dread disease, but it has come back most of the way.

Refilled the hummingbird feeders.

One nice thing about the new office is my desk has a view of some flowers which one red-capped hummingbird makes the rounds of a few times a day. And there are white birches, but they are old and not very healthy. Probably too hot & dry for them here.

Delivered was one box of Kind bars, an ounce of eye drops, and the Lenovo 8" tablet, which is now boxed up to return via USPS tomorrow. It doesn't do 5Ghz, which defecates the purpose of a new tablet. It also has a micro USB connector. Those things break.

Watched the first half of the Raider's game. To be continued.

Dinner was leftover chicken drumstick & crab cake, with cole slaw. Lots of ice cream for dessert.

The Kardia EKG device looks legit. It found my Afib twice out of 4 tries, which is a bit high but not bad for random.

Plans for tomorrow:
Drop off the return
ATM for Cash
Massage (?)
Watch football & other Tivo stuff

    It seems the reason some of my fish completely disappear is I have three four bottom feeders which devour the bodies. So I went to…
