Does anyone actually watch live TV anymore? It's very rare that I actually sit down to watch a show that's happening right in the moment.

Gotta love fall weather. I am happy as a clamthese days where it's 75 most of the day but crisper in the morning. Monday I woke up and had the best run - I went out hoping to run 4 miles.
