Coastal Thunder

I love thunderstorms. An impressive system moved through the area last night, providing a beautiful show of nature’s power.

Flashes of lightning so bright I could see them clearly through closed blinds and closed eyes.

Thunder so strong it shook the house and rattled the windows. It could even be felt through the ground.

Wind, rain, and hail combined. It was magnificent.

I’m a certified ceraunophile.

Full Frontal Thursday: The Inevitable

In this installment of “Full Frontal Thursday,” Ms. Bee talks about the inevitable backlash against the #MeToo movement.

She also talks to the working-class Americans who have been largely forgotten about since the electoral college selected the Drumpf, and takes credit for being the first television personality to call the Drumpf a racist.

I can think of many people who have been calling him out as a racist for some time. I’m one of them. So, get those book deals coming my way, polish up a Pulitzer with my name on it, and be certain to have Lupita Nyong’o and Angela Bassett portray me in my autobiographical movie.

Chess, Anyone?

Stratego. Risk. Chess. Poker. Billiards. Darts.

Those are games which require a good amount of finesse, strategy, and skill.

A bit of luck helps in some games, as does recognizing an opportunity and grabbing it when it presents itself.

People used to provide genuine challenges.

Few know how to set up an old-fashioned board anymore. I doubt they really know how to play the game.

The Master Baiters

Fishing is a fun and useful hobby.

You can feed yourself and your family if you are good at it.

Successful fishing requires knowing which waters support the fish you’re after.

Proper bait is also required. If you use old, rotten bait you will catch nothing but bottom-feeders.

Some people like catfish, I’d wager.

I’m not one.

Muhammad Ali: 17 January 1942 – 3 June 2016

Ah, me…a titan has passed on. Muhammad Ali, born as Cassius Marcellus Clay, Jr., but forever known as “The Greatest of All Time,” succumbed to a respiratory illness which was exacerbated by the complications of Parkinson’s disease and CTE. He was 74 years of age. From the BBC:

“Boxing legend Muhammad Ali – one of the world’s greatest sporting figures – has died at the age of 74.

The former world heavyweight champion died late on Friday at a hospital in the US city of Phoenix, Arizona, having been admitted on Thursday.

He had been suffering from a respiratory illness, a condition that was complicated by Parkinson’s disease.

Ali’s funeral will take place in his hometown of Louisville, Kentucky, said his family…George Foreman, who lost his world title to Ali in the famous “Rumble in the Jungle” fight in…

Did You Give Up Already?

I find it too funny.

The cool, clever kiddies don’t even try anymore.

No wit and zero stamina.

It is to laugh.

R.I.P., Ms. O’Riordan

Dolores O’Riordan, the lead singer of the Cranberries, was found dead in a London hotel on Park Lane. She was 46 years old.

Quite an untimely death. She wasn’t much older than I am.

In tribute, here are the five Cranberries songs which have always been favourites.
