Waaay to early panic bus edition of Cleveland Indians Baseball 2019

Hello and spiffy Monday morning to everyone!

As a long suffering Indians fan, I am here to put my spin on the start to the season and my brutally honest assessment of my team’s chances in 2019. Today is April 1st…April Fools Day and as of this morning, the Cleveland Indians are in last place in their division sitting at 1 win and 2 losses. The silver lining is that the season is just begun and the team is only a game out of first place. Continue reading “Waaay to early panic bus edition of Cleveland Indians Baseball 2019”

Michele Smith Interview…Podbean/iPhone Crash

Good morning…relatively speaking. The build up of anticipation and stress to set up and get my podcast interview with Michele Smith to go smoothly came and went. I navigated the normal work day and made a side trip to acquire a data cable to attach my iPhone XR to the speaker successfully. I arrived home after work and tested the setup for about 20 minutes to make sure everything seemed correct and viable with no issues. With the exception of the blue tooth function with the speaker disconnecting, everything else seemed OK. To circumvent this, I simply plugged in the data cord from the speaker to the iPhone and it worked like a charm.

With the testing and troubleshooting done, I recorded the interview pre-amble and sent Michele a text message to call me when she was ready. She responded that she would call in a few minutes and all that was left to do was wait. After a brief few minutes, Michele Smith calling popped up on my phone! We spoke for a minute or two to get acquainted as this was literally the first time I was talking to her. With my adrenaline flowing, we were now set to record!

Time Change!

Good morning!

It is a certain time this morning but I swear it feels an hour earlier! (crickets)

This joke went over about as well as the one I made when dropping off the child at school latchkey this morning. Perhaps the extra earliness took away from the joke’s zing or perhaps it just wasn’t that funny, it matters not! We as a nation should feel outraged that collectively we were robbed of another hour! Stop taking our hours away!

I acknowledge that this practice of adding & subtracting sixty minutes twice annually was to somehow benefit the farming community (although I do not see how) but it is antiquated and should be discontinued! Moving the sunrise up and the sunset up in the short term changes nothing. The amount of work the farmers do is still the same! The rest of us poor schleps have to mentally deal with knowing that we are up an hour earlier with no real benefit. It’s madness I tell you!

OK it’s mostly just whining. This whole moving the clocks/time an hour does nothing to improve my status as a non-morning person. In fact, it probably cements it even more to the extent that I’m less of an early afternoon person based on my internal clock settings.

Moving forward (pun intended), write your global congressmen and women and demand an end to this silly practice of manipulating the clocks! We need every single hour in my estimation!

Everyone have a great Monday (as possible anyway) and talk to you soon!

Peace.

Did you get a haircut?

Good morning.

As some of you may know, I recently returned from my belated honeymoon/vacation in Cancun, Mexico. The temperatures were fantastic and the beaches were the softest sand I’ve have ever tread upon. Add in the all-inclusive food and drinks within the resort and it was a pretty spiffy time.

Red Bull: Peach

Hello!

Welcome one and all and one again! Today’s topic is the ‘new’ energy drink flavor from Red Bull known as Peach-Nectarine. As a big fan of their Tangerine flavor (orange can) along with the Kiwi-Apple (neon green can), I decided to try a new branch on their energy drink tree: The Peach Edition. Continue reading “Red Bull: Peach”

March 5th!

Hello!

I have returned from Cancun Mexico, where the temperatures were anywhere from 79 degrees in the evening/morning to about 87-88 at their apex during the days, to here in St Louis where the temperature this morning was 6 degrees and there are remnants of snow and ice all about. It is truly a wonder…and freezing!

Please check out my personal website via Google. If you can find that, all else will follow! Have a great week and let’s connect again soon!

Peace.

<<03-05-2019>>

P.S. When I wrote this and recorded my podcast I thought the date was March 5th when in this reality…it is only March 4th! Plus all temperatures above are in Fahrenheit, not Celsius like the temps are noted in Cancun!

Up in the air…

Hello and welcome to my mobile blog! Some people like to think they are above others when maybe they really aren’t. But I can say for sure that I am above all of you! But, that is only because technically I am cruising at like 38,000 feet on an airplane. After my trip last week and about six hours of ‘downtime’ while on flights, I decided to try to utilize my time a little more constructively than just mindlessly staring out into space and playing iPad games. After some readers have read my blog they might argue that those activities are a better use of my time but I shall forge ahead undaunted! Continue reading “Up in the air…”

MLB: Recognize the Power of Three (year contracts)

Good day and welcome to my blog! Some days the topics are as random as they get and others I am very driven to box up a specific point (of view) and deliver it to my readers. Today is one of those such days!

Play By Play for High School Basketball

Greetings!

Over the weekend I got the opportunity to team up with a friend who has started up a live streaming business. His name is Ray and this business entity is called LiveStreamSTL. In addition to being on Facebook, his streaming service can also be viewed from his website and through YouTube. I have done a few screen captures of the event to show our mugs and also I have included the link in case anyone wants to check out my first shot at doing basketball play by play.

This was a fun time and all the coordinating parties involved were very accommodating. Should be a good building block for when we head out on location again this coming Saturday (December 15th) to call and bring live more high school basketball games live from Jefferson College in Hillsboro, MO. Check these out and tune in this Saturday!

Everyone have a great week and talk to you soon!

Peace.  <<12-10-2018>>

PitMad … The Twitter Game?

Hello friends.

It’s OK to relax in here, this is a relative cyber safe zone. But out in the social media realms, all is fair in love and posting. As of today, I noticed that the hashtag (#) PitMad was trending again. I noticed another one a while back and tried my hand at posting a blurb with a potential story. As you may have guessed, I received no bites offering me instant wealth or even an inquiry to offer more details. So today I threw out a story that I have had circulating in the back of my mind for quite some time. Continue reading “PitMad … The Twitter Game?”

Missouri does produce snow

Hi all! Or hey y’all! Your choice of which you prefer.

tanksnow

So it is once again mildly snowing here in the Show Me State. Tiny little frozen flakes of water are drifting down from the sky…only to disappear once they touch the ground surface. Why am I bringing this up? Because this is like the third or fourth time already this fall (not yet winter) that we have seen some sort of snow-like precipitation. This is quite noteworthy as I think we only managed two or three ‘snowfalls’ last fall and winter combined. The aggregate of those latter snowfalls I think was a centimeter.
