Editor’s Thoughts
Going to try this as the new newsletter of the day/week. I post on here most days and it gets annoying to get out a bunch, and also it will be nice for you to have it all in one spot. AND no need to hunt down an email from weeks ago. The goal is two-three items a day. A good productive hint. A website that is cool for the Website of the Day. And perhaps a list or steps to create coolness. And if it needs a bit more a link to the section where the details exist.

God for the Order

“It sounds plausible enough tonight, but wait until tomorrow. Wait for the common sense of the morning.”
H.G. Wells


National Dog DAy

National Dog Day!! WOOF!

Man’s best friend. You knew there had to be a day for this, and today is that day. A dog truly is a different creature. They do have a sense of loyalty to their owner, especially if they are spoiled. If you have a dog please share. I have only had one, still do. Found her in a paint bucket. Have always has a cat, or two or three. She has her own Instagram page also.

KC Chiefs

SAD NEWS from the NFL – Chiefs

Saddened by this NFL news. I knew nothing about football sitting there with my leg in cast in Atlanta. Was watching what turned out to be one of the longest games in NFL history. On a small black and white color TV. The Chiefs logo was so cool and been a fan since. Their quarterback Len Dawson has passed away at 87. Great guy and served so many others after his retirement. Rest in Peace Len Dawson.

bees, honey bees

Honey Bees, Have Their Day Too

Looking for my honey bee video from one the Celebration Days in Glendale. These guys get busy and don’t much care what goes on around them. Pretty cool. Also when my purple bush blossoms they get very busy.

What is cool about this day is that ir has nothing to do with the 20th, but that is the 3rd Saturday of the month, August. Who knew right?

soft ice cream

Soft Ice Cream Has Its Day

I guess ice cream always has its day. And today it is soft ice cream’s turn. Pretty cool that you can go into a number of places and walk out with a soft treat. It is what Dairy Queen makes the best after all. They do add some extras sometimes.

Arr, arr Now That’s Funny

I am looking for my new found joke list. It is the one that reminds you of all the jokes you forget. Or maybe its one liners today, mini quotes. List of jokes to come if you see none below. Or comebacks and more.

I sold our vacuum cleaner; it was just gathering dust.

A guy walks into a bar, and there’s a horse serving drinks. The horse asks, “What are you staring at? Haven’t you ever seen a horse tending bar before?” The guy says, “It’s not that. I just never thought the parrot would sell the place.”

roller coaster

Roller Coaster Day

This makes me miss my dad who passed away back in 2020. We would ride the coasters together, and enjoy the trips. There weren’t that many, but I recall we did pull over once on a summer trip back through Oregon or Washington. Saw on just off the freeway, so we pulled off. Went for the ride and then continued our hurried back trip to Arizona.

We did a few at Disneyland and the Scream Machine at Six Flags in Atlanta. Those come to mind. I also did them with my friend Alissa. The one she didn’t go on with me did me in though . California Six Flags. We did a couple of the others but one did me in.
