Pennsylvania Lt. Gov. John Fetterman files paperwork for 2022 Senate run

I am glad to hear this. He's gotten a great buoy of attention from this election and the Pennsylvania GOP's antics. He's been a voice of a normal joe for the Democrats, bringing a blue-collar sensibility and personality. I would love to see him in the Senate.

One way I track the year is via my facial hair. For roughly 7-8 months of the year I have my mustache and chin beard, and then 4-5 months of the year I have my full beard. And the facial hair season is about to change. I grew the full beard last year in October and I'm feeling like it's getting close to time to shed it back to my "normal" facial hair. Maybe I'll do that later today or this weekend.

A friend turned me onto this CBC produced podcast. I've only hit some of my friend's episodes, but I plan to listen to more of the show as I find the 'infotainment' from the show to be good.

I will forever be in the debt of my good friend Nate for his introducing me to the delicious ginger beer and irish whiskey, aka the Irish Mule.
