    What do the dates above have in common ?

    A. They were Saturdays
    B. My employer threw a Christmas party
    C. The Zags played games on those dates
    D. The Zags lost.
    E. All of the above.

    RESULTS

    12/19/2009 Duke, 76 -41
    12/11/2010 Notre Dame, 83 - 79
    12/10/2011 Michigan State, 74 - 67
    12/8/2012 Illinois, 85 - 74
    12/21/2013 Kansas State, 72 – 62

    The Christmas party losing streak was snapped in 2014:

    12/13/2014: UCLA, 87 - 74

    And renewed with a loss on:

    12/12/2015: UCLA, 71 -66

    This weekend, after the Zags compete in Chapel Hill, I will be hoisting a few at the office Christmas party.

    Hope I'm not drowning my sorrows. . .
    One more reason that retirement looks good...no more office party or curse.

    5 days and a wake-up to retirement.

    Or: 4 working days left.

    Or: Approximately 144 hours until I walk out the door free from THE MAN. . .


    ( I love being a two digit midget. . . and it's more fun the second time around )

    On my first day of retirement, I had the Tacoma serviced in Carson City then took a drive to Lake Tahoe for lunch.

    Now farting around on a gently used iMac w/ 21" 4K retina display that was "up for auction" at work. Might be the best $220 I ever spend. . .

    Congrats Reno!

    Now, you can look for a part time contractor job that you can do from home
    or anywhere else in the world.

    Or you can become a part time professional gambler.

    ...All those casinos and buffets.... in Reno or Lake Tahoe, or Vegas or
    any Indian casino, and boy there are plenty of them everywhere in the West.

    Saw “Rocketman” last evening. The film frankly depicts EJ before he got sober and before he came out. As with any biopic, there are liberties taken with the chronology of some key events, e.g., the film depicts EJ's 1970 US debut at the Troubador by showcasing "Crocodile Rock," a song that wasn't written until 1972.

    “Honky Chateau “ was the first record album I ever owned and I wore the grooves out on the hand me down stereo I inherited from my sister. Much of Elton’s music has bookmarked episodes of distraction in my life.

    In the foreground you see lower Sardine Lake; the back drop is the eastern flank of the Sierra Buttes. Both are within the Lakes Basin Recreation area of Plumas County, CA, northwest of Lake Tahoe.
    I was camping at Plumas-Eureka State Park Tuesday and Wednesday night; took this hike on the way back to Reno.
