It’s been a lovely weekend, if you don’t count the power outage blowing-from-hell angry skies episode on Friday.

Maybe that’s what set me off – the barometric pressure and electrical currents sweeping through the cooling air. I went off the deep end of seriousness yesterday. I’m not regretful but I think it’s time for some levity. Getting ‘all het up’ about things I can do little to change sucks up too much energy. I don’t think I’m cut out to write about grave and important topics.

Here is a dashcam video shot in Russia where all types of surveillance are in vogue. There’s a lot of trash on YouTube these days now that anyone can upload whatever dreck they’ve produced. But this one is funny, especially since I’ve been writing a few Russian gangster figures into my novel to ramp up the peril factor for my protagonist.
