Mint Julep and a Hot Dog, Please!!

The time is drawing closer for that phenomenal annual gathering in which speed and determination are so important. Bets are being made all over America. So much alcohol is being consumed, that Rum Runner Joseph Kennedy would have a hard time keeping the supply aligned with the demand. It is that event in which the winner can change places in the last moments. (OOPS, I am sorry, I was thinking of The Kentucky Derby.) I love to watch The Kentucky Derby.

But I am supposed to be writing about The Superbowl. What a downer. I was feeling good there for a minute. The boss tells me I must write about The Superbowl, so that is what I must do. I think I shall go and fix me a strong alcoholic drink.

Ho, Hum…..I am back. I will sip slowly on my Crown Royal so writing this post becomes more tolerable. (GULP, GULP…)

Let me set the stage….the game is being played in Atlanta, Georgia. (GULP, GULP…) It is a beautiful stadium. In the game today, the… I think I shallgo and fix me strongaholic drink.

I am back. (GULP, GULP…)

As I was sayin…out of gate number 1, we have Deflate-Gate being ridden by jockey, Shady Brady. Shady has been around a long time and already has 5, or some number like that, Gold Plated Horseshoes to prove it.

Out of gate number 2, we have No-Call being ridden by jockey, Damn Ram. (DR did ask me to say a special thank you to “The Blind Referee” what ever that means.)

It seems like my bottle of Royal Crown is dwindling away….so I am about to sign off here and go to guard it.

Oh, I forgot. Atlanta did agree to allow the referees to use their seeing-eye dogs and white canes in the game tonight.

I am sick of all these news commentators asking me who I want to win this super derby tonight….”Once and for all…I refuse to pick a favorite in this game tonight between Shady Brady and the team who is there due to the no-call from a blind CROOKED referee…..”

“to pick a favorite here…would be like trying to pick up a dog turd by the clean end.”

bye now-(GULP,GULP…) Go Secretariat!

Are You Having A Stressful Day?

In case you are having a rough day, here’s a stress management technique recommended in all the latest psychological journals. The funny thing is that it really does work and will make you smile:

Picture yourself lying on your belly on a warm rock in a crystal, clear stream. Picture yourself with both your hands dangling in the cool running water.

Birds are sweetly singing in the cool mountain air.

No one knows your secret place.

You are in total seclusion from that hectic place called the World. The soothing sound of a gentle waterfall fills the air with a cascade of serenity.

The water is so clear you can make out the face of the Democrat you are holding underwater.

See, it worked. You’re smiling. You feel better already.

Have a great day!!!!

Astronomy Picture of the Day

An Airglow Fan from Lake to Sky
Image Credit & Copyright: Dave Lane; Rollover Annotation: Judy Schmidt

Explanation: Why would the sky look like a giant fan? Airglow. The featured intermittent green glow appeared to rise from a lake through the arch of our Milky Way Galaxy, as captured during 2015 next to Bryce Canyon in Utah, USA. The unusual pattern was created by atmospheric gravity waves, ripples of alternating air pressure that can grow with height as the air thins, in this case about 90 kilometers up. Unlike auroras powered by collisions with energetic charged particles and seen at high latitudes, airglow is due to chemiluminescence, the production of light in a chemical reaction. More typically seen near the horizon, airglow keeps the night sky from ever being completely dark.
