    Very likely I will make good use of my time by brewing five gallons of beer, something I have control over.
    In any sporting event, it is already known that one team will win. I don’t care which, and my watching or not will not influence the outcome. But If I don’t make beer, I will be negatively influenced for weeks. Therefore, I actively brew instead of passively watch. Then everything goes better for me with a good homebrew or two waiting for me at the end of the day. I am not cast into a month-long depression if “my” team loses.

    A man is driving down a deserted country road when he has a blowout. Not having a spare he finally finds a house and asks the lady if he can use her phone to call for a tow-truck. As she opens the door for him to come in, a Three Legged Pig runs out. He asks “why does that Pig only have three legs?” She says that they had a fire and the pig woke everybody up and then went back and brought the dog out. He said “but why does the Pig only have three legs?” She said well another time my son was playing on the ice and it broke and he fell in and the Pig ran to the barn and got a rope and saved him. Again he asked “why does the Pig only have three legs?” After all the Pig did for us, it didn’t seem right to eat him all at once.

    How can a woman marry a man who has lived as a bachelor for 30-plus years and expect him to have full high-standard housekeeping abilities? Maybe some obsessive compulsive type does, but not most guys.

    If you want help, don’t micromanage, and don’t start complaining when the job is barely started. Show some appreciation afterward for something you didn’t have to do yourself. Allow more than two minutes for satisfaction over a job completed, even if not well, before you start in assigning the next job. Make a list that we can cross off things on, and do when we feel like it, instead of instead of springing emergencies on us at the last minute. Letting us do our own projects once in a while still results in things getting done, and greater worker satisfaction.

    The emergency weather alerts still use what must have been the first synthesized voice ever invented, so garbled that sometimes you can’t understand it. The 20th Century is over. Get Siri or one of her pals to do your automated announcements if the message is so damned important.

    My wife won’t let me wear my $5 thrift shop tuxedo. Not my fault.

    What brought that on? We seem to be nowhere near a conclusion to the story. Somewhere along the way, Nemo quit trying to get back to the princess.

    For example, see some of the aerial views in the first 30 or so of these cards. From the way one of the covered passages and the buildings on the lower right curve, I’d say McKay was working from an aerial photo taken with some sort of wide angle lens. He would have to use photos to maintain accuracy in this travelogue series.

    Many of these scenes look like the color postcards of the era.
