    How I taught myself to spell BUTTIGIEG's name correctly

    Just a side note.

    This is how I taught myself to spell Buttigieg's name correctly.

    it is all about the IGI....the...igi...= I get it

    Butt....I get it....eg.

    BUTT...IGI....then...EG.... Now it is easy for me.

    Butt...igi...eg.....Buttigieg


    When living in South Dakota I used the same method to teach myself how to spell the Sioux tribe's name correctly too.

    S....then....IOU as in I owe You...followed by an X

    So...I owe you...nothing (X) made it easy.

    So...IOU...X = SIOUX

    Never spelt it wrong again since.

    Forget about the Nazis. Look to much more recent failings to see what may affect the US.

    It feels like I just had a stroke reading that.

    Whatever works for you.

    Just a goofy little memory key.
    Nothing personal or any affront to anyone.

    Merely a goofy little memory key my fevered mind produced.

    I have much more.
    I am a night owl and sit up and ponder and process lots of little things like this all night long.

    This is how i got one US Patent and have another pending.

    Of course, Billy Bones over there on the couch helps me out sometimes.
    See him there in the background here in my man cave ???

    I think it will be a very long time before we have to worry about anything like that.

    Hmm ...

    Interesting sense of aesthetics.

    I have a Nikon J1 that I bought used. Good camera for what it is, but I wish it could macro focus closer. Generally it's close enough, however.

    Mayor Pete is really a sharp guy!

    First things first, it’s “boot-edge-edge.”

    Not as hard as it looks, really, but a question so common, Buttigieg includes a pronouncer in his Twitter bio.


    He’s an “elder millennial”—with an almost bizarrely perfect résumé.

    Pete was born on January 19, 1982, (near the cusp of the millennial generation that starts at 1981) to two University of Notre Dame professors in South Bend, Indiana. Buttigieg’s late father, Joseph, immigrated from Malta; his mom, Anne, is an Indiana native. After graduating magna cum laude from Harvard College and becoming a Rhodes Scholar (yup), Buttigieg did a stint as a McKinsey & Company consultant before enrolling in the U.S. Navy Reserve and rising to lieutenant. He’d go on to take an unpaid nine-month leave during his first mayoral term to serve a tour of duty in Afghanistan in 2014.
    He’s got some fun hobbies.

    Buttigieg is a proficient musician, playing guitar and piano and, in 2013, performing with the South Bend Symphony Orchestra as a guest piano soloist. Buttigieg is also conversational in Spanish, Italian, Maltese, Arabic, Dari, and French and taught himself how to speak Norwegian because he was tired of reading a favorite Norwegian author in translation.

    I wont mention his "other" hobby which everyone knows about. We should not throw out the good in looking for the perfect. Its certainly not as shamefull as the one sitting in the Whitehouse.

    Can America accept an openly gay president? I don't know. Many cannot, I imagine.
