I could buy a one- or two- year T-bill paying better than 2.25 percent. So why would I buy a CD paying half or three-quarters percent?
Got in a very nice pre-breakfast run. Felt great throughout. 🏃
A very nice run yesterday along the bank of the Sangamon. 🏃🏻♂️
Today’s dessert: Chocolate fudge cake with ice cream, and caramel and fudge sauce.
Did a trail run at Allerton Park. I ran to the Sunsinger and back while Jackie walked as far as the Dying Senator and back. Worked pretty well—we started at the Visitor’s Center and then met up again near the Sunken Garden. 🏃🏻♂️
Jackie drinking a fancy old fashioned (a “not so old fashioned,” according to the menu) with some ginger liqueur. I have an Oberon.
Both drinking Schlafly APA at the Giant City State Park lodge, after hiking the trillium trail and the stone fort trail. #GiantCity
Or rappelling! (Trail sign in Giant City State Park.)
A delightful article (from 100 years before my birth) on the history of exercise:
“Nothing so pleasantly combines mental occupation with bodily labor as a pursuit of some one of the natural sciences, particularly zoology or botany. If our means allow a microscope to be added to our natural resources, the field of exercise and pleasure is boundlessly enlarged.”

I call shenanigans. That is a curb, not a ramp.
