Happy Hour

"IF A LIFETIME CAN BE LIKENED TO A DAY, THEN THIS IS HAPPY HOUR!"

Mother, Mother Ocean

Mother, Mother Ocean, I've heard you call
Wanted to sail upon your waters since I was three feet tall
You've seen it all, you've seen it all
Watched the men who rode you, switch from sails to steam
In your belly you hold the treasures, few have ever seen
Most of 'em dream, most of 'em dream
Yes, I am a pirate, two hundred year's too late
The cannons don't thunder, there's nothin' to plunder
I'm an over-forty victim of fate
Arriving too late, arriving too late

Counted the Stars

Counted the stars on the 4th of July
Wishing we were rockets bursting in the sky
Talking about redemption and leaving things behind
I have these pictures and I keep these photographs
To remind me of a time
These pictures and these photographs
Let me know I'm doin' fine
We used to be so happy once upon a time
Once upon a time
But the sun sank west of the Mendocino County Line
And the sun sank west of the Mendocino County Line

Kings Hockey and Sierra Nevada


The Kings and Wild are on the FSN-West from Staples Center in Los Angeles. It just got started. The Kings have gone from first in the West to fifth. Losing 3 out of 4 will do that in the Western Conference. The Chicago Blackhawks are in first. And the libation of choice is the afore posted Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale. Available at Albertson's in Rosamond and Tehachapi for a fair price, considering it is the People's Republik of Kalifornistan. But there is that CRV thing.
And on New Year's Day it may be some of the above libations when the Flyers and Bruins meet, outside at Fenway Park. The only way to play......................................on Frozen Ponds.

Yeah... I'm gearing up for the Winter Classic, too. Are you a Kings fan, Glenn? Or is it just the local affiliation aspect? I didn't think the Kings would do as well as they have this year, nor did I think The Hated Avalanche could come back as quickly as they have. Hockey is MOST interesting this year!

Slowly becoming a Kings fan due the proximity. But I still am a Canadiens fan. They aren't having a very good year. And my favorite Canadien is now an Anaheim Duck, Saku Koivu!
With Kopitar and Smyth, this is a good team. And the two kids in net aren't bad either.

I will not go down and tell my children I didn't have the courage, the conviction, the commitment or the character to fight for this country...Don't go home and let your children down~~ LTC Allen West
