Scattershooting 03-08-15

Scattershooting while wondering whatever happened to the great

Sunday's Summary

My incomplete recap of the week

A message on the Bar Louie menu -
Once again our weather prima donnas are all excited because we have more -

Did anybody else see the premiere of CSI: Cyber? What a mess. Mediocre story/script, mostly bad acting, unbelievable computer stuff and a few other annoyances. This is not "must see TV', more like "must avoid TV".

This is what we have early this morning (3/5). Seems we got more snow than predicted. It is also a balmy 25° with 30 mph wind gust. That translates to a wind chill of 10°. All the schools are closed so there should be some snow men and snow angels later today.

Another new TV series premiere, this time American Crime on ABC. This one is pretty dark. It has gotten good reviews and seems to be an interesting story. It doesn't look like there are any clear cut good guys to root for. I'll watch another episode or two before deciding if it's worth the time investment.

These guys were on a rerun of Letterman tonight (3/5). Never heard of Grizfolk, but I like this song. Hymnals is not like any song we had in our hymnals -

The good news is that sunset on Sunday will be at 7:30 PM. Bad new is that sunrise is not until almost 8 o'clock. Do you know where all your clocks, watches and other timepieces are hiding? Don't forget or you will be late all day Sunday.

Yesterday (3/6) was the first bike ride in several days, today(3/7) it was a walk. With all the snow/sleet/rain lately, the Boys Ranch lake is full again. It also means that little or no work has been done on the renovations. Don't know if the full lake hurts those efforts. The ducks and gulls like it though. Seems to be a little mating going on. Still a handful of snow here and there but all the streets are clear.

I would like to meet the genius who is in charge of scheduling work at the parks in Bedford. They waited until recently to start major work at Boys Ranch which means there will be construction all through spring and summer, peak usage times. The playground and beach volley ball courts are gone. Baseball and softball seasons are about to begin so there is a new trench in left field of one of the t-ball fields. No visible work done in weeks. The trench is deep enough to lose a t-ball outfielder in. Just last week they started renovations at the Meadow Park softball fields. The outfield fences by the parking lot are gone. Shouldn't this kind of stuff be started around October? Government, when you want it done wrong.

Somehow this song seemed appropriate for this ‪#‎SongSunday‬ time transition day. It's a number done by one of the most successful musical groups of all time. This particular song was released in 1970 and reached #7 on the US charts. It was written and sung by Robert Lamm, the keyboardist and a founding member of Chicago (AKA Chicago Transit Authority). Robert is still with the group. Here is the song that asks the question we are all asking today, Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is? -

If you have the time (pun intended) you may want to listen to this longer version which is closer to the original album cut. Much less polished. I like it better. It's also fun to see how the guys looked in 1970.
