wednesday, squirrels, & other things...

Had a gray squirrel sighting this a.m. while on my way for the Preliminary Cup of Java. Don't see too many squirrels in my neighborhood. Wonder if it has to do with the proliferation of coyotes... I've seen a bunch of coyotes running up Disc Dr., though they look a lot more gaunt than the one in the picture...




Just listened to a really thought provoking message on the Book of Job & addressing 'suffering' - John Goldingay, Professor of Old Testament at Fuller Theological Seminary... great accent too.




TheBean & I are getting ready to go on a double date with Matty & Nikki C... headed to the Tide for wings & a frosty beverage to combat the blistering sun & to quench a king's thirst... as soon as she gets home... I'm not a fan of waiting-age.




Is it time for football season yet?




It cracks me up when theBean moves stuff from one room to another. And back again. And forth. Once upon a long time ago, I may have even tried to understand it, but mere mortals like myself can't hope to comprehend the greatness & genius of such masters of design & arrangement.




I think its a shame that home field advantage for the World Series is decided by the outcome of the All-Star game. If THEY are going to insist on continuing this (& according to Bud Selig, they are,) then a couple rules about the All-Star game should be done away with, like:

  • The mandatory "every team gets represented" rule - meaning that at least 1 player from every team has to make the All-Star team. Instead, let the players & managers pick the team & the reserves - so that deserving players don't stay home just to make sure every team is represented.

  • Fans don't vote in starters - I'm all for removing the fan vote 100% - & again, let the managers, coaches, & players vote/select the players that make the team.

  • Treat it like a real baseball game - let the bestest players play, & the bestest pitchers pitch. Instead, the game looks like Simpson's episode - with most player appearances amounting to no more than a cameo...


  • There's more, but that would be a start. Now, if baseball would just adopt the same rules for both leagues, that would be fantastic...




    Self-cooling socks would be a great invention.




    We are officially running late for our double date...




    I am content. Ahhh.

    3 launchings into the blogosphere....:
