Constitution Cat:  It’s in The Constitution.  These two  ( 2 ) racist getting fired made my day.  I still won’t watch ESPN, if I want political opinion I will read Mein Kampf..  I hope they lose another eighteen  ( 18 ) million viewers.

I wonder why companies aren’t satisfied with a reasonable profit.  Oh, I almost forgot, Greed.

Astronomy Picture of the Day

Meteors, Planes, and a Galaxy over Bryce Canyon
Image Credit & Copyright: Dave Lane

Explanation: Sometimes land and sky are both busy and beautiful. The landscape pictured in the foreground encompasses Bryce Canyon in Utah, USA, famous for its many interesting rock structures eroded over millions of years. The featured skyscape, photogenic in its own right, encompasses the arching central disk of our Milky Way Galaxy, the short streaks of three passing planes near the horizon, at least four long streaks that are likely Eta Aquariid meteors, and many stars including the three bright stars that make up the Summer Triangle. The featured image is a digital panorama created from 12 smaller images during this date in 2014. Recurring every year, yesterday and tonight mark the peak of this year’s Eta Aquriids meteor shower, where a patient observer with dark skies and dark-adapted eyes might expect to see a meteor every few minutes.

Power Outage

During a recent power outage my PC, Laptop, TV, DVD, IPAD, and a new surround sound system were all shut down. Also my cell phone battery was dead. To make matters worse it was raining so I couldn’t play golf.

So I go to the kitchen to make coffee, OOPS, the coffee maker requires power, so I sit down and talked to my wife for a couple of hours.

You know, she seems like a nice person.

Grammatically Correct Animal

The manager of a large city zoo was drafting a letter to order a pair of animals. He sat at his computer and typed the following sentence: “I would like to place an order for two mongooses, to be delivered at your earliest convenience.”

He stared at the screen, focusing on that odd word “mongooses.” Then he deleted the word and added another, so that the sentence now read: “I would like to place an order for two mongeese, to be delivered at your earliest convenience.”

Again he stared at the screen, this time focusing on the new word, which seemed just as odd as the original one. Finally, he deleted the whole sentence and started all over. “Everyone knows no fully stocked zoo should be without a mongoose,” he typed. “Please send us two of them.”

Grandfather Clock

 “Well, what seems to be the problem?” asked the clock repair man.

“It’s my grandfather clock. It used to go tic toc, tic toc, tic toc. Now, it just goes tic, tic, tic, tic, tic,” replied the young lady.

“Hmmm, I think I can fix this,” he says. He opens the door on the clock, looks at it, and then says to the lady, “Don’t worry, we have ways of making it toc!”
