These show notes are going to be much briefer than usual. Time constraints just keep getting constraining. I apologize for any inconvenience.
I’m A Horrible Twins Fan
So, convinced was I that the Hated Yankees would complete a four game sweep on my beloved MN Twins in their recent visit to New York, I actually bet three dollars against my team. That in itself is horrible, but it was so much worse…
17 Hour Power Outage & The Great Bob Ross Mystery Solved
A storm blew through the Twin Cities a couple Saturdays ago and it knocked out the power all over Minneapolis and St. Paul. Our house was without power for approximately 17 hours. But just a few doors down on the opposite side of the park from us, those neighbors only had power out for two hours. My dad had the lights dim for a few seconds, but he never lost power.
I guess we were special.
While talking with the neighbors who were inconvenienced for a mere two hours, I met another neighbor whose lights went dark for 12 hours. She was also significant for being the person who watches Bob Ross virtually every night. She gave me her reason for her viewing habit.
The Queen Is Dead, Long Live The King
I’m an American and as such I don’t get royalty. America said no to the whole king thing in the late 18th Century. There was a war (actually two) to win and secure our independence. You may recall hearing about in school.
But for some reason the British Royal Family holds some kind of endless fascination for some Americans. I don’t get it.
I guess she was good at the job (don’t ask the Irish) she has been doing for decades. A job she qualified for by being born into the right family, at just the right position in the line of succession.
Now her son Charles is King. His mom was Queen for more than 70 years. He’ll get 10, 15 years. Maybe 20 years, if he hangs lives as long as his mom.
Britney Spears Is An Atheist Now, Y’all
People come to atheism for all sorts of reasons. Pop singer Britney Spears said she came to it because of how her family treated her.
Is that a great reason? A solid reason? Will it stick?
I dunno. I welcome her, because the more atheists we get in the world, the better off the world will be.
Cool Thing: My Wife Went To LA
My wife Amy and her oldest and bestest friend went out to California to see their favorite band: Duran Duran.
They missed out on seeing their show here in Minnesota last month due to stormy weather (it was an outdoor show). The band and the venue announced the show would not be rescheduled, so Amy and her friend decided to take in their show at the Hollywood Bowl in LA.
They took in some sites, saw the show on Friday night, and had plans for Saturday night. The Saturday night plans were dropped when they decided to see Duran Duran again at the Hollywood Bowl.
They had a great time. And they’ll be going back to LA in November to see Duran Duran again!
My Somewhat Major Announcement
After the better part of 33 years, I have quit my janitor job. My last day will be Friday September 16th.
I have quit that job a couple times over the 33 years, but went back because I needed the job. I hope this time sticks.
