Ollie stopped by
and asked me what
I was doing today.
Told him what you
see is that I’m
Yoga’ at the same
Ollie said, well
your stretched out
on the couch.
My response, that’s
the way I do it,
and there is no
better way to do all
He asked, three?
Yes I say, three:
and TV. It doesn’t
get any better than that.
In 1962 there was only one TV channel in Sweden, and it broadcast in black and white. The station’s technical expert, Kjell Stensson, appeared on the news to announce that, thanks to a new technology, viewers could convert their existing sets to display color reception. All they had to do was pull a nylon stocking ove r their TV screen. Stensson proceeded to demonstrate the process. Thousands of people were taken in. Regular color broadcasts only commenced in Sweden on April 1, 1970.
For the past couple of nights, I have seen ads of all things: lawn care. It seems odd to show green grass, flowers, etc., when there is so much damn snow on the ground, and it looks like it will be here for quite awhile.
By the way, we’re expecting another inch to three inches tonight, and then change over to freezing rain and then just rain, early Wednesday morning.
Well Agnes, we’ll just have to grin and bare it until Its finally gone.
The 4th of July has come and one, but if anybody cares as to what I did on (Democracy Day, Independence Day), was watching the rain from Hurricane Arthur come down, which started shortly before noon. It came down heavy at times, but for the most part, it was a light rain. I actually enjoyed watching the rain , in between breaks of watching TV, reading a book, and a crossword. So with a stormy holiday, I kind of enjoyed it.
It’s early Saturday evening, and in an hour, the sun will be setting at 8:24 PM. Have the windows open, the baseball game is on the TV, and the best part is, the numerous birds all happy and chipper as they are tweeting away in one massive chorus. Sitting here listening to the birds, they are saying that there is still a lot to like about the earth, that we all call home. With a touch of Zen, life is grand.
Since the middle of the week, I have only posted once. There’s a reason for that. I came down with the flu, and it knocked me on flat on my ass. The worst part is over with, but the nuisance part of it is still with me. The flu is wide spread throughout four states: Mass, Conn, RI & NY.
So, because of this malady, I couldn’t even spend five minutes looking at the screen, and I shut it down, and just TV, and/or read a book. With that said, I don’t know when I will be back on a regular basis.
We go to school
We watch TV
We go to movies
All the things we do or, for some people some of them.
We’re all human, and since we’re on this planet for a very short time, we should enjoy everything we do.
It’s what makes life on Earth interesting.
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.
