Tell us about yourself:
Joined AARP in 2020, when I turned 50. My father was a big fan of the organization, so I guess I've joined it based on his recommendations. (He's gone now.) I am neither avocado nor dog. Nor do I have a dog. (But I love animals.) I had to come up with a user name when I joined, and I looked up and saw a silly quote I had pinned to my bulletin board that includes that unlikely combination of words. Pretty irreverent about a lot of stuff, but I never mean to offend. I think of myself as a decent guy.
Area of knowledge and what I know well:
I am a veritable cesspool of useless knowledge, to quote some "Jeopardy!" contestant I remember from the 1980s.
Bio
Because my Dad was a big fan of AARP I joined the organization when I turned 50. I believe I am a cesspool of useless knowledge who simultaneously operates as a professional social distancer.

The streaming channels are great. I love "Tubi." All kinds of old nostalgic stuff on there.

I play the card game Quiddler a lot. I prefer Scrabble but my regular opponent evidently can't deal with the possibilities a grid demands of him, so we play this card game instead. I like Wordle, too. Big fan, big fan! I played it every day for almos...

I was really excited when the game originally came out in the early 1980s and I was not yet a teenager. It was expensive, but there it was under the Christmas tree that year. Thanks Mom! Sadly, no one wanted to play with me. I think I played it once ...

Just a few nights ago I re-watched one of my favorite movies, after I was talking to a friend about it and he got me thinking about it. Here's a screen shot I took off the TV:  It's A Mad, Mad Mad, Mad, Mad World seems to be an acquired taste. Most o...
