    Taking time to read at home instead of watching Netflix and relaxing amid the jitter and panic about WCV (which on my mind wouldn’t stop me from doing what I do). The How To... blue book is the most comprehensive guide to being a (not better) well-rounded guy who likes to put the seats up when he pees, among others. The Man & His Watch (underneath) is for those who aren’t into Apple Watches, among others. And the big black one is a graphic novel of Hellboy before he became Hollywood famous, well sort of.

    The binoculars are for bird-spotting, among other things :whistle:

    The New Normal Cookbook

    Quarantine cooking has never been better. Or worse. Consider 51 different recipes for canned sardines. And mastering the art of scrambled eggs, and why adding milk is the secret ingredient to it.

    Now looking for a book The New Normal Exercise Manual, to burn off all the fat from those new normal cooking.

    Must admit in the last few years I don’t devote much time to reading books. Figure I’d start spending 30 minutes before bedtime reading. Good way to cut back on screen time before sleep.

    I was reading up and watching biographies of Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos.

    What they had in common was a childhood of reading.

    Not just any sort of reading for entertainment but a reading of facts, figures and other reality based learning.

    Like almost all of them read the encyclopedia from books letter A to Z.

    They also read the biographies of business founders, leaders and star athletes.

    If I had a kid I would model their up bringing after these people.
