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

ND Legislature and NCAA bigshots to meet in Bismarck

Seems that the State of North Dakota is going to make a law regarding the name of UND sports teams. The primary target is the Hockey Team because it is a national power in NCAA Div. 1 Hockey. The law will require the University to keep the name, Fighting Sioux.
The NCAA has determined that it is demeaning, disrespectful, and "threatening?" The NCAA is about as much use as tits on a boar hog and balls on a priest.

I wonder how long before FSU is bows to NCAA pressure and decides to change their name. PC run amuck is what this is.

Sort of like my Navy now days.

It is to weep.

Yep the episode of the USS Stamp (I think) a couple of weeks back was ridiculous. As I understand it some officers and crew were censured for some "disorderly conduct" on liberty. A bit of "disorderly conduct" on shore liberty is a time honored Naval tradition. Apparently not anymore.

USS Stout. "My bad" as my high school students like to say.

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
