A Comet Landed On My Road

26 Jan

From a very young age my mother would tell me about all kinds of wondrous things.  Astronomy was one of them.  She really enjoyed reading and would often tell me about celestial events that were going to occur.  When I was only five or six years old she was excited that a comet would be visible in the early morning hours.  She, naturally, told me about it.  I had only ever seen a comet in drawings, or zipping through a cartoon sky on Saturday morning television.  I was very excited about seeing a real comet!

I’m sure one of the reasons I woke up on this particular evening/morning was due to this excitement in part, but apparently I had a habit of getting up after bedtime.  My Mother had told me on an earlier occasion, probably at 3am, “If you wake up in the middle of the night, don’t wake me up.  Just go back and get in bed.”  This night, when I woke up to a completely dark and silent house what my mom had told me was the furthest thing from my mind! 😀 Read the rest of this entry »

Only Losers Follow Professional Sports!

17 Jan

Each evening when I get home I sit at the kitchen table, readying myself for yet another wonderful home cooked meal.   I switch the television to one of the local stations to see what is going on in and around Houston, the country and world.  I enjoy the local news broadcast, up until they switch to sports.  “Sports is NOT news!” I’ll say in an elevated tone.  Hastily looking for the remote and changing the channel before I am subjected to a complete waste of my time.  I usually tune to a rerun of “The Simpsons”.

My wife explains to me, each time I complain, that some, albeit most people DO think sports is news.  My retort is always,  there are so many ways for people to receive news and information these days, can’t they get their SPORTS information elsewhere?!?!  Then I remember ESPN.   A channel dedicated to sports!  With the advent of HD TV local stations now have additional channels.  Can’t one of those extra channels be used for sports?   She doesn’t follow sports either and is quite happy I don’t.  I think she just likes fighting with me, but I digress.

I did follow sports, years ago, before reaching adulthood.  Not so much football or basketball, but baseball.  I played baseball and loved the game.  I watched the Astro’s and year after year I was bitterly disappointed by their lack luster performance.  It wasn’t until I saw a Jerry Seinfeld comedy routine on “The Tonight Show” with Johnny Carson (yes I’m that old) in which Mr. Seinfeld said something to the effect that you aren’t rooting for the players as much as you are rooting for the jerseys!  Players come and go, but the jerseys stay.  How silly to want a team of laundry to win over a competing team of shirts, pants and caps!

It’s 2012 are you ready for the next doom and gloom?

13 Jan

Well it’s finally here, 2012.  In just a very short time it will be December, then the 21st.  In case you’ve been living under a rock, I speak of the much publicized and talked about Mayan calendar.  Specifically December 21, 2012, the end of their calendar.  Personally I think the calendar maker just got tired and figured that 60 generations was plenty of calendar for his kids, grand kids, great grand kids, great great grand kids, etc…

You see it over and over again, THE END OF THE WORLD!!!!  We’ll unless the Sun does something totally unexpected and goes red giant 2 billion years sooner than it should, the Earth isn’t ending for a very very long time.  I believe when people claim the end of the world they really just mean the realm of human existence.  The Earth was cruising along quite nicely without us and will do just fine without us, thank you very much.  So really when we talk about these things we’re really just talking about ourselves, our lives.  Going green and saving the planet for example, nope just hoping to make the planet a little better for ourselves, and perhaps a few of the other species on the planet.

Watch your language!

Men vs Women

Men vs Women

I’m not sure if it is a generational thing, an age thing, a parent thing, or what but I am becoming increasingly aware and some what concerned about the free use of expletives, foul language, curse words, cussing openly, in public and also by women.  When I say women I’m not talking about alcoholic trailer “trash” woman, lady truckers, or Harley riding Mamas!  These are well educated non tattooed (as far as I can tell) intelligent and even otherwise well spoken women.

Now how many warning flags did I just raise with you? 😀  No I do not care for tattoos.  It’s a sign to the world that you don’t play by the rules.  You may be a wonderful person and generous to a fault, however that tattoo tells me that I should be concerned who you are.  Bullsh*t you say?  Really?  How would you feel about a person that you didn’t know that had tattoos on their face?  If you tell me it wouldn’t bother you, you are either a liar, or you have a face tattoo. 😉
