Sunday! Sunday! The NFL Football Championships! Two Winners go to the Super Bowl.

Kansas City Chiefs v. New England Patriots – Los Angeles Rams v. New Orleans Saints

As a kid, I watched Pat Haden, Roman Gabriel & Joe Namath quarterback for the Rams at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. And after 22 years without a local football team, three years ago, the Rams came back! And then two years ago the San Diego Chargers announced they would be relocating to Los Angeles. NOW THE CHAMPIONSHIP AND THE SUPER BOWL ARE ONLY ONE GAME AWAY! GO RAMS!

The Rams Win in Overtime is SWEET!
Pulling victory from the jaws of defeat, a lucky interception and a long field goal,
the Los Angeles Rams are going to the Super Bowl! GO RAMS!
Los Angeles Rams 26
– New Orleans Saints 23 (Final – Overtime)
NOTE: YES, the refs blew the pass interference call that would have changed the game.

And the New England Patriots also win in overtime, with a little help from the refs….
New England Patriots 37 – Kansas City Chiefs 31 (Final- Overtime)
NOTE: WE HATE CHEATIN’ TOM BRADY AND THE PATRIOTS.

“Enjoyin’ My Coffee”

Chinese New Year 2019 is February 3rd-4th in the USA!
Happy Year of the Yin Brown Female Earth Pig!
newyear-pig300

The Pig is the twelfth of the Chinese zodiac animals. According to myth, the Jade Emperor decided the zodiac by the order in which each animal arrived to a party. The Pig was late because he overslept, arrived last and ended up number twelve.

The Pig is yin. The Pig is associated with the Earth element and the hours 9–11 at night.
Pigs are a symbol of wealth. Fat faces and big ears are also signs of good fortune.

TIME! A YEAR IN THE LIFE…

 

TIME! A YEAR IN THE LIFE… and Death.

NOTE: Here’s another draft from the past. We started this Blog before we received the news that two of our old friends died suddenly and unexpectedly over the space of two weeks, giving this Blog a whole new perspective. We left this one alone for a short time, tributes to Ann and Mario (of blessed memory) are in other Blog posts, and we returned and changed this around to make it something new, and then it sat again until today, when we finally published it. Take a moment in time and think about your life.

“Every year is getting shorter never seem to find the time…..”

Yesterday was the two year anniversary of the death of another good friend, and we also received word that another old friend from our past took his own life rather than face an uncertain surgery. He had no next of kin.

“TIME”– Pink Floyd (from Dark Side of The Moon)
DAVID JON GILMOUR, NICHOLAS BERKELEY MASON,
GEORGE ROGER WATERS, RICHARD WILLIAM WRIGHT

Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
Fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way

Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain
You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today
And then one day you find ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun

So you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it’s sinking
Racing around to come up behind you again
The sun is the same in a relative way but you’re older
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death

Every year is getting shorter never seem to find the time
Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines
Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way
The time is gone, the song is over
Thought I’d something more to say

Home/Home again/I like to be here/When I can
When I come home/Cold and tired
It’s good to warm my bones/Beside the fire
Far away/Across the field
Tolling on the iron bell/Calls the faithful to their knees
To hear the softly spoken magic spell

All that you touch And all that you see
All that you taste All you feel
And all that you love And all that you hate
All you distrust All you save
And all that you give And all that you deal
And all that you buy, beg, borrow or steal
And all you create And all you destroy
And all that you do And all that you say
And all that you eat And everyone you meet
And all that you slight And everyone you fight
And all that is now And all that is gone
And all that’s to come
and everything under the sun is in tune
but the sun is eclipsed by the moon.
Pink Floyd “Eclipse” from “Dark Side of the Moon”
