Are you tired of P2P messages? 


I'm hoping these political text messages STOP next week. Politicians are allowed to circumvent FCC rulings because they are politicians. I've been using BLOCK when I get these texts but they persist. After reading this article I'm going to simply use the word STOP and see how that works.

This may be my most enjoyable baseball season ever. I've watched most of the GIANTS games this year. They continue to win in every way a team can win a game. They've filled an entertainment void (while I stay at home more due to Covid). They may NOT win the World Series but they have entertained all season long. Kapler and Zaidi deserve any awards they may win at the end of the year. 

Football starts this weekend and I'm already tired of Trey Lance. He's an unproven rookie. The 49ers had a #1 pick in Alex Smith and had little success. They've already had a great running quarterback in Colin Kapernick. But the league figured him out and drove him into the ground. Maybe Trey is the next Mahomes but I for one hope Garopolo finishes the season (as the starter) and they use Lance like a trick play to confuse defenses while he learns the job. Even Mahomes wasn't a starter his first year.

A non-vaccinated friend got Covid and was in the hospital twice seriously ill. I'm glad he is still with us but I'm certain he wishes he had taken the vaccine. Don't be this guy. Get vaccinated.

Still haven't voted? Here's a simple solution. Vote NO on the recall and skip the vote on the back. I did choose the former Mayor of San Diego (in MY MIND he was the best of the worst). If you don't vote and Newsom gets recalled we get Elder and God help us all.

Michelle Lambert

Friday, Sept 10, @ 6PM

Michelle picked up the violin at a very young age and not long after began singing and writing her own songs. She spent her teenage years performing at many fairs and festivals in California before going to Berklee College of Music in Boston on a full scholarship. After graduating in vocal performance she moved to Nashville and toured with many acts around the Southeast. Some of Michelle's Nashville highlights were performing the NCAA Women's Final Four at the Bridgestone Arena and the Grand Ole Opry with a standing ovation! She met her guitarist, Robbie, in Nashville in 2015 and has been touring the states as a solo artist since then. They are now based in California, where her name is swiftly gaining notoriety in the West Coast music scene.
