I just put long pants on for the first time since March (just a guess). After 2 days of rain, the wind came and pushed away the clouds and now it's friggin downright chilly! Well, 63F feels chilly after 90+ degree days for 5 months.
French firm Sorare, which sells football trading cards in the form of non-fungible tokens (NFTs), has raised $680m (£498m).
The NFT-based cards are used by fans to create fantasy football teams which can then "play" each other. The funding was led by tech investor Softbank, with ex-England international Rio Ferdinand also putting in money. NFTs are controversial, with concerns over financial risk and environmental impact. An NFT is a "one-of-a-kind" digital asset that can be bought and sold like any other piece of property. As with crypto-currency, a record of who owns what is stored on a shared ledger known as the blockchain and maintained by thousands of computers around the world.

He leaves Monday morning.
I'll be off to Houston tomorrow with a load for the storage unit. We are in the home stretch now!
We have someone over working in the yard today getting as much as possible ready.
Dominica is busily painting the dining room today.
You just made me log in for the first time in nearly a year just to thumbs down that assclown.
OMG - I didn't notice when reading this on my cell phone, who it was... he's still around? Jeez I know I can be obtuse and all,... but if I was such a Curtis I'd have had my account locked and left the scene....
Yeah, he's never stopped there and they just keep letting him go. It's nuts. He was reported so many times for abuse, lying, intentionally trying to get people to harm themselves, fake news... but always allowed to remain.
