Heavy thunderstorms struck us this morning but it's been drying up now. I'm still reeling over the Blackhawks loss last night. They looked simply awful losing 4-0. They play game 4 on friday.
The stock market is still in a jittery state. A lot of people are moving cash into bonds. Buying bonds is an excellent avenue to retirement. As long as you can wait until you're 140!
I tried watching Laura Ingraham on television last night but couldn't make it for 5 minutes. Not because of anything she says but because of her bizarre demeanor when she speaks. It always looks like she's sitting on a toilet dropping a deuce with her pained facial expressions. Any college freshman in a speech class could give a better presentation and look more professional.
Jimmy Ellis passed away this week. He was the WBA World Heavyweight Champion in boxing from 1968-70. He was a Louisville contemporary of Muhammad Ali.
Yesterday was the 60th anniversary of Sir Roger Bannister breaking the 4 minute mile. He did it on an old fashioned cinder track. In college, I ran the metric equivalent of a 4:08 mile on a state of the art Chevron track. In addition to becoming a British Knight, he also went on to have a stellar career as a world famous neurologist. A humble man, Sir Roger is still alive and doing great.
We found the source of our squirrel problems. They have been tearing apart our grass for a year now. It turns out our whacky neighbor behind us is feeding them nuts like they are a pack of elephants. They stash them in our new sod and dig them up later creating a mess.
Many of our friends have offered varied solutions. Just shoot them! Just poison them! Use a blow dart gun which is about the only item I don't have in my closet. Too many squirrels to finish them all. Besides, I still like them better than my neighbor!
