For whatever reason, several times this week my mind was a day ahead that the actual day. For instance, Wednesday night I was thinking it was Thursday, so I posted Opinions in the Shorts a day earlier than normal. Of course that was a carrier over from Tuesday night when I was thinking it was Wednesday. In order to fulfill my self-imposed obligation, I looked through old bookmarks to gather a collection of random thoughts – and now I can delete these. Enjoy. Which did you watch? Any favorites?
On Looking Back
Does anyone remember this commercial from days gone by?
On Food & Wine
Food recalls are serious – so when one happens, the media has an important role in informing the public. Does anyone remember any of these recalls? 😉
Did you know that guitarist Jimmy Stafford (of Train) is involved with wine?
If you needed a kidney, who would you ask? If a friend asked you to donate one of your kidneys to them, would you do it? Would you ask a stranger or consider donating to a stranger? You will have to watch this one on YouTube.
Are you looking for a unique adventure? Would you consider staying here?
On a Musical Treat
Being in the grip of winter, fall seems so long ago. Besides, after the move – no more fall leaves to rake or mow!
On to the Weekend
Because it has been so long since I’ve done a cartoon post, here’s a tribute to a classic character.
Another weekend is in the books, so how was yours?
Because my wife “no ballroom” for two weeks instructions from the doctor, we stayed home on our normal dance night to open a bottle of good wine and watch a movie. Saturday was full with a funeral visitation, a contractor at the house, handbell rehearsal, and the church’s 50th anniversary celebration event, Saturday flew by.
The handbell piece premier was only acceptable – mainly because we played in a big room that is acoustically dead – a real sound killer! However, we had three good rings Sunday morning!
In this past post featuring a fall-colors walk in my neighborhood, many commented about our fiery Japanese Maple. It’s transition is in progress, so this image is from Saturday when we could see the transition with hints of green, deep maroons, and brilliant reds. (But this pic didn’t capture it as I hoped.) Interestingly, we could see more change on Sunday.
Many thanks for the testimonials. I hope to publish the new subpage sometime this week. Many thanks … and for others, I’m still taking them here.

My favorite pro hockey team is the St. Louis Blues. Many of you also realize there is also a song of that name. Plus, it is also fitting as the city’s baseball Cardinals caused fans to sing the blues for losing the World Series. For your Monday Morning Entertainment, enjoy the St. Louis Blues – but done in a quirky way. Have a good week.
