7TH YEAR STRETCH

Some fine wine was consumed.. amazing food was, as well.. The Greystone in Pottsville PA was the location for a very special dinner.

Last night, my wife Tara and I cerebrated our seventh inning stretch.. We got married on a beautiful October day in 2007.

In the years since, there has been new life made and miracles born.. there has also been lives lost, some very painful..

Some days easy.. others days not. I cannot even imagine the burden of living with me, sometimes.

The state of marriage, seven years in.. by the time 9pm came, we rushed home to make sure we could tuck our child into bed and relieve a babysitter of some duties. Because parenting has now become the most important part of our marriage.. Everything else takes a second seat to ensuring you’re properly raising a human being into this world.

I hope we are doing well.
Last night we took a time out to consume some amazing food. And have some very meaningful discussions to attempt, in some small manner, to put a theme to the past seven years.. And move into the next 7 stronger.

STRANGER THINGS 2 looks incredible

The newest STRANGER THINGS 2 trailer hit on Friday the 13th .. amazing timing as always with the fine people at Netflix..

The excitement over this program is incredible. Not only are people re-watching and re-binging the first season in preparation, but there is an equal amount of re-watching and analyzing of the newest trailers..


Before discussion.. take a glance:



My initial thought: This is actually the weaker of the teasers and trailers for season 2.. Yes, I am inclined to wonder why Eleven is more androgynous  .. why she has more hair now and no one shaved it. why she is out of the upside down and eating Eggos in the normal world..

So many questions about her. But the trailer didn't pay much attention to her--I think on purpose. Instead we glimpsed into the post-pubescent boys and now new friends of another gender planning something, just as the world is being taken over by giant squid creatures from the upside down.

Not viewed at all? Mike's mom and dad. Barb..

Forgive me…

THE UNLUCK OF THE IRISH: TROPICAL STORM MAY HIT IRELAND!!

Yes, indeed.. a hurricane-ish type storm is about to hit Ireland..

Hurricane Ophelia is the 10th consecutive hurricane to form in the Atlantic basin this year. According to University of Miami hurricane expert Brian McNoldy, the last time ten consecutive storms became a hurricane was 1893. While a very interesting factoid, the "elephant in the room" is that Ophelia is headed to Ireland. It is rare, but not unprecedented.

There are a few interesting things about this.. First off, there have been really rare occasions that storms of this nature made it as far as Ophelia may..

Actually there have been only a handful in the past years since about, oh, 1851..

From 1851 to 2010, only 10 extratropical storms, typically the tail ends of tropical cyclones, have hit within 200 miles (322 kilometers) of Ireland....Hurricane Debbie was the only tropical hurricane to make landfall in that area, clipping the far northwest of the British Isles in 1961.

But this is 2017--the year that mayhem on …
