May I remind you all that Soylent Green was set in the year 2022.
I forgot about that! It was based on the book Make Room! Make Room! and it's easy to forget those things. :)

Ahem...

Be careful what you eat this year, hosers.
Odd coincidence that my husband was talking about Soylent Green just the other day.

I do not really follow stocks, so I am not going to make a topic for this. It was just a Canuck coincidence. Back around September, Canon Inc (yes, the Japanese camera company) bought up a Canadian Xray company "Redlen" because it had developed a new CT scan technology. That surprised me because the most common buy-out of a company is usually between Canada and the US. But yeah, the X-Ray field is fairly specialized, so Canon clearly looks globally for acquisitions. Anyway, I thought I would read up on it today, and I searched Canon's website, and I found that In Dec (2021) they had also made an investment in an Ontario IT company "Supra ITS". It's all very normal "big business invests in smaller company" stuff. But it seems we are doing some stuff right in Canuckland. Good.

I have to measure the window; I'm interested in the 12x12 version. Now where is MLW with the truck?

MLW are trying to get to Portland, ME next month ... lazy_lobster has another photo in the gallery at MECA, plus the four at a gallery in NJ that we haven't been able to see. Interestingly, the banner for the Institute of Contemporary Art is one of LL's from a series on decay.

Newly obsessed with Wordle. Got today’s word in 2 tries. Anyone else playing? I’m new to it so not sure if today was an easy one or typical. Also check out the alternative game of Absurdle for more word play!

Ordered a new backdrop today for the pup's Valentine photos. The backdrop is generic so I can use it for other projects. The pup's said no to head gear so I will stick with scarves.

I remember the kids talking about Squirtle, from Pokemon.

We did another Jeep thing.

This morning, MLW and I went to the local Jeep dealership to help escort Mr. Vanderquack through part of Southern Maryland. Mr. Vanderquack is is visiting all 50 States and the District of Columbia, raising money for St. Jude's Hospital.

Mr. Vanderquack is a duck. Ducks and Jeeps go together (Official Ducking Jeep Est2020).

Some of the escorts (ours is the grey pickup)


My new friend, Ziggy (and his mom)

Haven’t looked at todays yet. I usually check it while I’m having lunch. An easy one would be nice.
