Sunday's Summary

My incomplete recap of the week

A blast from the past - for whatever reason, I recorded American Graffiti a few days ago. It was on Encore. I half watched it tonight while doing some other stuff. I've seen it a million times, but always enjoy it. Of course a big part is the music and the old cars. Our passage from youth to adulthood. Never easy, but damn sure interesting. Classic movie.

What part of Mexico is this new Taco Bell breakfast Waffle Taco from? I'm sure it's a very traditional breakfast in Oaxaca. Probably calorie and fat free too. And don't forget the traditional maple syrup salsa.

Good one -

  • Seems like every few weeks we find out about another acetaminophen (Tylenol) side effect. The problem is acetaminophen is an ingredient in many prescription and over the counter drugs. Now it may be linked to ADHD.

It's a start - 

 Federal judge strikes down Texas' same-sex marriage ban

And more good news -

A beautiful place shown with some amazing photography - Erin go bragh.

 Nature explores the Shannon, Ireland’s wild river.

Mother Nature keeps playing games with us. It was 84° today (2/28), shorts and T-shirt for the bike ride. Might have to wear long sleeves on Sunday & Monday.

This guy seemed a little overdressed for our 80° temps today.

Thankfully the big commercial farms can now go about their questionable practices in private.

 Idaho gov. signs 'ag gag' bill into law

Now the weather folks are just making up stuff. Not bad enough that the temps are going from 80° today to 25° Sunday, they are now also predicting thundersleet. Is that a real thing?

What A Difference A Day Makes... -

Not feeling good about the Gators baseball season. They are 6-6 to start the season and that doesn't include any SEC games. They started the year ranked #20 but will certainly be unranked after this week. The SEC is loaded with good teams as usual. Could be another long year for Florida.
