Where to start today...

I'm semi-rudderless on where to go and how today might or might not suck so let's just start here...

This is my 'If I ever hit the friggin' lottery' car.

Been a tough week to watch and it ain't over yet. Buncha my stocks hit stop levels in the last 2 days.

This is the way CNN is calling the election. Already...
No wonder everyone's brains are turning to mush.

My wife and I occasionally watch Wheel of Fortune while we're having dinner.  

NOT because we're brain-dead zombies -no - we actually enjoy playing along and gamble a buck a clue on who can solve the puzzles first. For the record, I'm ahead 3,784 - 4, but that's another story for another day.  

Anyway, we're watching the other night when this chick did this and my brain exploded.

I cannot begin to imagine how much money the Catholic Church has stashed away in the bowels of the Vatican. A strange organization run by crazy old men.
... 

This is the guy the Yankees wanted
 to sign back in 2018.

Shohei Ohtani spurned the Yankees after the 2017 season by signing with the Angels. He really should be playing in the National league 'cause he's a rare double threat - a quality pitcher who can really hit. That's a story for another day. Back in the winter of '18 when they couldn't sign Ohtani, they still needed a big-name, big impact player to add to the roster.


The Yankees felt confident about their chances to land the two-way star. Except Ohtani did not even make the Yankees one of his finalists. The Yankees quickly pivoted to Giancarlo Stanton, a decision with ramifications (mostly negative for the organization) that show no signs of abating.

Flash forward to 2020 Spring Training. Stanton is injured once again, this time a calf strain. He is becoming a bigger, stronger, more expensive Jacoby Ellsbury. The Yankees are going to have to continue to build rosters that assume his regular absence and do it with a payroll elevated by his contract. They have won 203 regular-season games and postseason rounds in Stanton’s two seasons. So winning is possible, but also more complicated — and this is before the aging decline of the 30-year-old Stanton. 

Meanwhile, this madness doesn't abate - 
The money is piling up 


According to Cot's Baseball Contracts website, Stanton is owed $214 million by the Yankees through the 2028 season. That's assuming the club declines an option and triggers a $10 million buyout of his final contract year.

Before I go any further, let me say this...

I want to take a minute to thanks each and every one of you who take the time to ride this blog of mine - whether you follow it and look for it every day or just bop in occasionally.  

I am truly humbled that you appreciate and enjoy what I'm trying to do here. It seems to some to be an exercise in frivolity to have and to read blogs like this, but we all hopefully understand that this form of news / entertainment / information is, at least in my opinion, considerably more important, enlightening and empowering than any other.  



It's a different kinda news stream and to my mind is more enriching than what we're spoon-fed every day by other so-called news outlets. especially the mass-media big name news outlets who continually, day-by-day, continue to loss credibility at such a fast pace you'd almost they they aspire to it. 

Thank you also to all of you who have responded to my comments about using this blog as a portal to buying stuff on Amazon. It really is gratifying to me that you understand that this blog is truly a labor of love. A small, reasonable recompense is appreciated when and if I'm successful in what we do here. 

I TRULY DO APPRECIATE YOU GUYS.  

THANK YOU ALL VERY MUCH.

Let's file this under 'And you thought (or hoped) that we were smarter than this, didn't you'... 



Some American beer drinkers are avoiding Corona, the beer, amid the deadly coronavirus outbreak, according to a new survey.

A surprising 38 percent of beer drinkers insisted that they would not, under any circumstances, buy Corona as the deadly virus spreads across the globe. “There is no question that Corona beer is suffering because of the coronavirus,” a spokesman for the industry said in a statement. 

There is OF COURSE no known similarity between the beer and the virus — except for the name, you fucking idiots.

And now, a much-needed distraction:



You are quite welcome...

Because there's a new level of crazy out there...


The pet dog of a coronavirus patient in Hong Kong was found to have a “low level” of the deadly virus, the autonomous region’s government said Friday. The pooch’s oral and nasal cavities were tested Wednesday, with the results showing a “weak positive” to the new coronavirus.

Health officials are not sure if the dog, which is not exhibiting any symptoms, is actually infected or just carrying the virus in its mouth and nose from “environmental contamination.”

You have no idea how many of these fuckin' crackers down here look exactly like this guy.


Detectives say the man pictured above (who looks just like 10,000 other guys here in Florida) entered the store, located at 13705 U.S. Hwy. 27/441, on Feb. 21 and stole a DeWalt tool kit. He was then seen running through the parking lot after he exited the store.  

Anyone with information about the crime or the suspect is asked to contact Detective Binegar at (352) 793-2621 or Crimeline 1-800-423-TIPS (8477) and reference case #644.

Here's the best part. Last Friday, this semi-toothless piece of shit came up to me just as I'm getting back in my truck at Home Depot (about 1/2 mile down the road from the Lowes), pops his head in my driver's side window and asks me if I wanted to buy the very exact same fuckin' drill for $ 250. 

He notices the Newark Police sticker on my window (yeah, I usta be a cop - shut up) and bolts like fuckin' banshee from the parking lot! Too funny, Certainly no meth workin' there, bubba...

Some dooshbag stole mine outta my truck last week in the parking lot at a big box home store that will remain nameless (Home Depot). 
Hadda get a replacement because I live and die by this little beast. Came with a new battery and an extra charger at a great price so It didn't hurt that much.
