I love to go shopping. – Steven Wright

I love to go shopping. I love to freak out salespeople. They ask me if they can help me, and I say, “Have you got anything I’d like?” Then they ask me what size I need, and I say ” Extra medium.”

– Steven Wright

If the problem has a solution,…

If the problem has a solution, worrying is pointless, in the end the problem will be solved. If the problem has no solution, there is no reason to worry, because it can’t be solved.

Coffee leads men to trifle away…

Coffee leads men to trifle away their time, scald their chops, and spend their money, all for a little base, black, thick, nasty, bitter, stinking nauseous puddle of water.

Yogi Berra, Some of his famous sayings and quotes

Whether your a baseball fan or not, and if you don’t know who Yogi Berra is, he played his entire career a catcher for the New York Yankees, plus later on down the road, managed the NY Mets. His quotes, sayings, adages are truly funny and some can be head scratching. Enjoy.

Yogi Berra
Lawrence Peter Berra played Major League Baseball for 19 years for
the New York Yankees.
He played on 10 World Series Championship teams, is a MLB Hall of
Famer and has some awe-inspiring stats.

baseball history, and he was voted to the Team of the Century in 1999
Amazing accomplishments aside, they probably aren’t how you know
Lawrence. You know him as Yogi, a nickname given to him by a friend
who likened his cross-legged sitting to a yogi.

Sky or Skies

In a post before this one, I titled it: Partly Cloudy Sky. Why am I pointing this out? Because what irks the shit out of me, is when the local and national TV, along with the radio weather forecasters, always, without a doubt, say “skies” when it should be “sky”. When we look up at the sky, we only see one sky, not two. So why do they insist on using the plural, instead of the singular word? Are they that stupid, that it is obvious that there is, and will always be one and only sky. Get with the program. That’s it.

Partly Cloudy Sky

Took these two photos earlier this afternoon. Lots of clouds, and no haze at all.
