Weekend Open Mic

Weather: St. Louis summer. Nuff said!

The week: Nothing much planned except we’re having some family over for pizza and games to celebrate my birthday on Saturday.

TV: We watched McCartney 3,2,1 (HULU). Mc Cartney and barefooted music producer Rick Rubin do a thorough 6-part ‘who, where and why analysis’ of McCartney’s music including his time with the Beatles. Excellent!
* We watched Gunpowder Milkshake (Netflix). (To protect an 8-year-old girl, a dangerous assassin reunites with her mother and her lethal associates to take down a ruthless crime syndicate and its army of henchmen.)
* We’re also midway through Heist (Netflix) a docu-series about big money heists.
* Finally, we’re also midway through LUPIN (Netflix) about a guy trying to exact revenge on the guy who framed his father.
* Coming up: We’ll be watching the new season of Ted Lasso (Apple+) and hopefully some of the Olympic games.

That’s it from B&P Headquarters in St. Louis. What’s going on in your world?

  1. Happy birthday!
    How come most of the images don’t show up without a click and open in another tab request? Like the weather image above.

    • Hmmm, I don’t know. I had one other person tell me they were having a similar problem. And I just told him no one else has mentioned it. Ev erything is showing up for me.

      My guess is that since they’re always updating plugins the site uses, that there is a conflict. I’ll keep an eye out for a fix.

      • I’m suddenly having the same issue with about ½ of the photos you post. But only on Chrome (Version 92.0.4515.107). I’ve been switching over to Microsoft Edge browser and no problem at all with B&P. Just started happening within the past few days on my PC. No problemos on Chrome on my Android phone.

        • Interesting. I’m using the Edge browser and everything is fine. I moved to Edge when Chrome just started messing up, maybe 6 months ago and I couldn’t figure out why.
          So, I just opened the site on Chrome and Firefox and all the images are showing up normally.

  2. Jonco: Happy birthday! May the best of this year be the worst of the next.

    I am watching a show on SyFy called “Killjoys.” It has 5 seasons and it is basically about some bounty hunters in part of the universe called The Quad. It is kind of interesting.

  3. Happy Birthdat! Love this, my second internet stop every morning, especially the St. Louis stuff. Nice to read somebody not making fun of us!

    • Thanks, Lynn! Our town has gotten a lot of bad press in recent years, some of it true but some not so much. It’s still a great city with a lot to offer residents and visitors.
