On Its Last Legs

I will have to cut down on my posting till my new computer arrives which won’t happen for a few weeks yet. My current one has been acting up, as the power supply won’t stop buzzing, which drives me crazy.  My Outlook crashed and now I have to view my email on the internet, which is a pain in the butt.  When a runner finishes a marathon their wobbly and exhausted legs feel like they are about to crumple, and this fatigue is how my inanimate computer feels now. It is screaming out, let me die and buy a new one!

Russian Radiation

On Monday the Russian people expressed their anger about an explosion that took place on a small nuclear reactor at a military test site last week which went unacknowledged for days by their government.  The mysterious accident was cloaked in secrecy and the initial report said the blast killed two people and injured six, but later it was disclosed that the explosion killed five of its workers and injured three others.  Radiation levels have spiked, but we will probably never get a straight answer from Vladimir Putin.

Caught Off Guard

Trump was unaware that he was standing in front of an altered presidential seal that featured a Russian symbol a two headed eagle, which instead of having arrows and olives branches clutched in it talons, it is holding a set of golf clubs on one side and a pile of cash on another, and instead of e pluribus unum, the words “45 is a puppet” was written in Spanish.

Seriously No Comments

I just sorted all of my 1,595 posts and I discovered that I have 399 posts where there are no comments, which means that about one quarter of my posts, nobody had anything to say.  It does not allow me to sort on LIKES, but that would be interesting to find out what is going on there.

You Can’t Control The Weather

In the 1988 drama/sport movie Bull Durham, these words of wisdom were taught to Nuke (played by Tim Robbins) by Crash Davis (played by Kevin Costner).  “Anyway, a good friend of mine used to say, ‘This is a very simple game.  You throw the ball, you catch the ball.  You hit the ball.  Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, sometimes it rains.’  Think about that for a while.”  Just in case you didn’t watch, the American League defeated the National League in the All-Star Game once again last night, winning by the score 4-3.
