Leaving on a Jet Plane

Tomorrow i'll be flying to a warm location.

Friday i'll board a ship that will take me to an even warmer location.

Friday is also my birthday. A BIG one. i was rather depressed about it - i just can't believe i'm that old.

However, the cruise to the warm islands will probably help with that depression.

Be back later

Sad day for Philadelphia Sports Fans

Our beloved Harry Kalas, sports commentator for the Phillies, died today at the age of 73. When i was 12 or so, i really became interested in baseball and used to listen and fall asleep to all of the Phillies games. Harry's voice became the soothing one of commentary and i learned alot by just listening to the games on the crackly AM radio station. Last season, he called the best games ever - especially when we went to the World Series and won it. He was in the Parade, i saw him and screamed (yeah, like a crazy person).

He will be missed - His commentary, his love for the Phillies and the fans, his knowledge of baseball...

Thank you, Harry Kalas, for all those wonderful years of commentating and for teaching me about the beautiful game of baseball. May you rest in peace.

Taking care of pirates

As i write, the Somali pirates who 'captured' the American-manned ship still hold the Captain as a captive.

i have the perfect solution. Four Navy for each terrorist...four bullets. They can scale the lifeboat, do their thing and rescue the Captain, return him to the ship and slip back into the water...all in about three minutes.

i wonder if i should email my idea to the Navy?

Queen of France

Don't ask how, it's a long story, but i have a nickname-given to me by some of my friends and family- as the Queen of France.

Today, the QOF needed cake at 9.30 am.

So the QOF went to the store and got some cake, made a fresh pot of coffee and is now sitting peacefully at her desk doing her work...very happy and licking the icing from her dainty fingers.

Keeping the QOF happy is a very important job.

Trust me on this.
