7103 - Well, it's 2005!

Happy New Year!



Something I post at the top of every new year, and I appreciate the words more with every additional trip around the sun.

Love is
is not rude,
it is not self seeking,
it is not easily angered,
it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil
but rejoices in truth.
It always protects,
always trusts,
always hopes,
always perseveres.


-1 Corinthians 13:5&6




I don't know why I like this little transformer guy so much. I think it's because he wears birkenstocks.



Note to Dan - Thank you for the info on the Yucatan meteor and the term paleoclimatology.

1845-8 - Irish Potato Famine / 1902 - Tunguska event.

It is unlikely that the meteor blew a hole in space-time to make crops fail fifty years prior to it striking the earth... Krakatoa's 1883 eruption did drop the planet's temp by about 7 degrees, and killed 36,000 people, though.

1918 - Influenza kills 20 million people. About a quarter of the US population catches it and 2 to 3% die from it.



Tony Danza has a talk show. The man is a phoenix, rising from the ashes. Taxi, Who's the Boss... the funny thing is that I see the friendly palooka sort of charisma there. I have no idea what he's like off-camera, but he seems pretty cool on-screen. I'm glad he's been cut a break.



I think it's interesting that Sri Lanka declined Israeli medical aid because it would have been furnished by a military team.

Random Scotto factoid - When I was a younger Scotto, I had a hamster named Xerxes, a dog named Lilah, and Hermit crabs named I & O... Newton-cat had best count his lucky stars.



Random sites linking to my assorted output -Some blogs were Hot linking directly to my hosted mp3, rather than sharing the link back entry...resulting in about 600 downloads over the Christmas weekend. I may be passwording the links from now on, like some other clever bloggers out there now, just to keep bandwidth throttled a bit lower... I don't mind sharing the wealth, but would like to see where it's coming form more in-depth.

Interesting bits.. referred via blogsnow (which I always read as blogsnow not blogsnow)

I'm a little tired of the word "blog"... I think I'll go back to calling them all diaries.



The Scotty's home improvement/hardware chain is soon to be history. Collapse )

Scotty's was understandably well-placed in my personal Florida history... same-name issues aside, it was a fun little joint to hang out at in Boynton Beach. I haven't been in one for years... Home Depot completely demolished them in my particular habitat.



What the heck is this?

B-to-the-E (BE), Budweiser's newest entry in a long line of innovative beers by Anheuser-Busch, is a distinctive new product for contemporary adults who are looking for the latest beverage to keep up with their highly social and fast-paced lifestyles.

As the industry leader, Anheuser-Busch is the first major brewer to infuse beer with caffeine, guarana and ginseng. Well balanced with select hops and aromas of blackberry, raspberry and cherry, BE will offer a lightly sweet and tart taste - a great mixture of beer and new flavors for adults to enjoy when out with friends at a club or at a bar after work with colleagues.

"Our new B-to-the-E provides caffeine, guarana, and ginseng in a great tasting beer. It will contain 6.6 percent alcohol by volume"
When I first saw it, I thought it was some sort of joke... but they're not kidding. I thought Drew Carey was kidding when he referred to "Buzz Beer". Try and sleep off this bender!
