Well I’ve watched my full of college basketball for this point. Of course this was just a tune up for the big dance. This is one wide open tournament about to take place. And I’ll join the masses later tonight or tomorrow in filling out my brackets. Ah, I can feel spring in the air and the song “One shining moment” in a few weeks. Go Terps

MD vs Duke maybe one more?

Back to reality of the work cycle beginning again. Certainly seems to come around much faster and more often than weekends do. If I could find out whom to speak to about this I’d give them a piece of my mind. Of course I better be careful, not much there to start with.

Anyway its going to be a great week for a number of reasons. I refuse to let this wonderful week ahead turn into the crapper. I’m going to get inspired. I already have done a few things to get started and feeling good about doing some planning ahead. Like scheduling a day of vacation to spend quality time with family.

Also got the batteries charged up for the cameras. Going to get the mop on the top of the head cut. Got to work on finding a barber. Yeah there are lots of them out there, but haven’t found one to replace the one I had for almost 3 decades that I like so far. But the main thing is my mind is charged even though sleep has been a little erratic.

I was glad to see the stepped up enforcement on Rt 29 in Howard County. Hope they keep it up and do so in the morning rush also. I think they got some new unmarked vehicles. For a change of pace I got downtown today with not one person cutting me off or tailgating me badly or running a red light or unable to stay in lane.

Random Thoughts of the Day

Dumplings, need I say more. OK, beef stew. Now is that good enough?

It’s easier to be at peace with the world when you’re at peace with yourself.

While I always hold out hope for people, some seem bent on making that a useless dream.

I’ve got to get reading about the important choices ahead of us so I can pull the right lever. Oh that’s right, they don’t use levers anymore.

I’d like to see if the job of “Mayhem” is open for those State Farm commercials when I retire from this gig.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
