Get a newspaper round!

Whenever I have to get up at 5 or 4:30, then spend two hours outside cycling and walking, I get cold. Very cold. I often end up wearing vests and sweaters way past noon, even on hot days. It helped me through heat waves!

Okay. 40 degrees is freaking hot! That's much better. I feel so much cooler. Why didn't I think of that before?

Learned that, unlike the earlier games in Windows claimed, NOT all FreeCell games are solvable.

For instance:
Game #11982:

AH AS 4H AC 2D 6S TS JS
3D 3H QS QC 8S 7H AD KS
KD 6H 5S 4D 9H JH 9S 3C
JC 5D 5C 8C 9D TD KH 7C
6C 2C TH QH 6D TC 4S 7S
JD 7D 8H 9C 2H QD 4C 5H
KC 8D 2S 3S

I read that a few months before he died, Jimi Hendrix was planning to have a meeting with Emerson, Lake, & Palmer to discuss joining them under the name of H.E.L.P.

Brain Salad Surgery indeed.

Found an interesting Wikipedia article, in which we discovered that the changing of letters to form new phrases is called Spoonerism, and through Wiki I discovered that meant Shiloh Pitt becomes Pile o' Shit.

And:
Apu Nahasapeemapetilon's surname is a spoonerism of the name Pahasaneemapetilon, which was the surname of a school mate of Simpsons writer Jeff Martin.

Edit:And on the Apu entry of Wikipedia I found: His surname, Nahasapeemapetilon, is a morphophonological blend of the name Pahasadee Napetilon, the full name of a schoolmate of Simpsons writer Jeff Martin.[1]

Beghilos is the name used for calculator spelling. There are 118 words possible using this technique.

One particular fan of using Beghilos has written two haikus using this alphabet. One of them is:
Illegible blob
Legless eggshell oozes oil
Elegize his loss

I've learned about the insidiousness of fear.
There once was a time when people said "I didn't like that", and left it at that.
Over the past month, I've noticed most forumers making even a marginally disparaging remark about a ZPZ concert, follow it up with a disclaimer/apology, fearing Big Trend Attack.
Don't look behind you! The insidiousness of fear.

Coots (the species of bird...) have rather peculiar feet. Saw a couple down by the nature reserve today.

The phenomenon of having tunes stuck in your head is called earworm.
From Wikipedia:

Earworm, a loan translation of the German Ohrwurm, is a term for a song stuck in one's head. Use of the English translation was popularised by James Kellaris, a professor of marketing at the University of Cincinnati. His studies appeared to demonstrate that different people have varying susceptibilities to earworms, but that almost everybody has been afflicted with one at some time or another.

Earworms may be songs or tunes that become stuck in the phonological loop, the part of the brain that rehearses verbal information in Baddeley's model of working memory. This usually happens when a person sings the song or hums the tune once and then repeats it in his or her mind.

Synonyms for earworms include "Last Song Syndrome", "repetuneitis", or in extreme degree "melodymania". A "repetune" is a song or other musical piece stuck in one's head.

Medications that are used to treat Obsessive-compulsive disorder or anxiety can alleviate the symptoms of earworms
