Not my picture, but it could be. -This summer, we had the least rain since . . . ever. This winter we have had the most snow since . . . you guessed it, ever. Sigh. I could be wrong, but this is how I understand it. There is a finite amount of H2O on … Continue reading Weird Wednesday: Precipitation Participation
The Winter Olympics. When people become an expert in sports that they haven’t see in four years (or ever). I’m guilty. There are some sports that are covered on a regular basis, while others, unless you have a decent streaming/cable package, do not get as much media attention between the games.

One of the highlights of the Olympic games for me was always how the torch was going to be lit. The most memorable ones were, Mohamed Ali in … Continue reading Thursday Thoughts: Here we go again!
