The year got off to a good start. Remember the billion-dollar lottery at the beginning of 2023? We won! Well, not the whole thing:

The big news though was about our “new” electric car.  We bought our little Kona at the end of 2022, but we didn’t drive it much until March, when we finally got a place to plug it in.  Faithful readers will remember accounts of remote bicycle trips in June and July, and then our first overnight journey, out to the Pacific Coast, in August. Until then the car still didn’t have a thousand miles on its virtual odometer. We fixed that, with a trip to Arizona in October.

For fans of provocative essays, there’s one from July:  Singularity

But that’s about all the news we had time to make!
