Subject: RE: De-clutter & Fitness: House, job, life - 2019
Last night I started working on the cables behind the cabinet where all of the sound equipment sits in the den; I'll be able to run everything through the receiver and to the speakers (the television was absent from that unless I was playing something from the DVD/Bluray player). Getting the correct lengths - I found myself at one point wondering if I would have to buy more RCA cables; I think I found where a couple of the longer ones went and can avoid that purchase in this day of Bluetooth, etc.

I have a friend I worry about, who was fired 3 years ago for what we all understand was no good reason - he was a disabled person working for a know-nothing dean who drove off her best staff in the course of a few years, as they could escape to new jobs or retire, though a few did just quit and walk out the door. He has managed to do temp work since then, but not consistently. The combination of being older and being angry about what happened is dangerous to his health. We didn't do Thanksgiving yesterday, though he is invited to the family one on Sunday; what I did last night was have a couple of people over and we scoured the fridge and freezer for interesting leftovers. He's vegetarian and we ended up with a pretty darned good smelling quesadilla (onions, poblano pepper from the greenhouse, avocado, and cheese) and the others of us ate smoked salmon with our rice, salad, and such. It was a nice evening and both friends left after an evening of good conversation that decuttered the introspection of a holiday spent alone at home.

Today I hope to finish the sound system setup and maybe binge in a couple of favorite movies while I work on eBay stuff in that room.
