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

Liberals Oppose New Winnipeg Team Logo

From Canada Free Press.
This one takes the cake. Along the lines of what is happening in Grand Forks ND with the UND Fighting Sioux.
Kind of makes one wonder about some folks, ya know. As one could guess, I like the logo. When I was in HS in Bow Island, Alberta from 68 to 71, I considered a career in the Canadian Armed Forces. Mom threw a fit and we moved back to the States.

Interesting article. BTW "Fighting Sioux" is one of the best names in college sports. IF they played in the "big time" the outrage and screeching would be deafening.

Division 1 Hockey is the big time. It is the only major college sport I follow.

True enough. I follow college football and if the Fighting Sioux were as well known as the FSU Seminoles the outrage would be through the roof.

The thing is the name is used under an agreement with a band of the Sioux. It is all legal. The NCAA is in lockstep with the PC movement. And as such, I have no use for said organization. It started when they left Kansas for NYC.

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
