This was one of Mayfield’s last recordings. If one listens to the lyrics, they’ll note that he correctly identifies much of the root cause of what ails his culture. I’ve mostly found that, regardless of color, folks that make up this generation owns up to cause/effect. Subsequent generations somehow seldom take responsibilities. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=L54wSJNUYbY

the shadow knows, I surely hope those mock drafts hold. It would give someone like me constant reference material, starting by addressing him as “Curtis.” Were he to be a successful Dolphin, a steady diet of Curtis’ hit single — 🎶 Move on Up!

We’ve been living in a Gables property here in Austin for over five years. It is not “in” the urban area. More rolling hills and trees. The newer properties are mid/rises, urban buildings that are more like hotels. While in Austin, we entertained the idea of living in downtown, in one of those buildings, but didn’t want the hassle of moving. What’s cool about them is that they are all equipped with all kinds of amenities; I’m buying my personal cue stick! Thanks for the kind words!

Yes sir, shadow. You are correct. There is also a Central Market nearby. Believe it or not, the best market I’ve ever shopped in between all of FL, CA, and Texas. And trust me on this one, I know food stores.

Well, the wife and I will be moving to Houston a week from Friday. It was going to happen sooner or later, as all of you know that our son is a medical student there, and we wanted to live closer. Anyway, for those of you curious types, here is a video of our new digs. After that community clip there’s also a second one that shows our exact model. It’s actually a floor above. Right-sized for two adults. https://www.gables.com/communities/texas/houston/gables-river-oaks/?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIwtq4vq3C2gIV1bjACh3qIwp-EAAYASACEgJbcvD_BwE#video-tour

“Justice Sonia Sotomayor broke her left shoulder in a fall at her Washington home.” ...but of course she broke her left wing...she doesn’t have a right one.

After listening to Nikki Haley’s address to the General Assembly concerning last night’s military strike in Syria, I’m reminded of Carol O’Connor in Kelly’s Heroes. “That's fighting spirit I was talking about! Listen to that guy! Attack! Attack! Attack!”

the shadow knows, One would be ill-served if one set out to obtain their political news through most media outlets. What sources like CNN, NY Times, network tv report is currently 99.9% invented rubbish. 5 minutes in any of that convinces an unsuspecting consumer that our President is an amalgamation worse than Hitler, Caligula and el diablo himself.

Philadelphia has lots of young energy and figure to be a team that will be relevant in the east for some time. I’ll take The 76rs over the Heat, shadow.

I’m envisioning Mr. Woodcock trying to send pics through an empty Campbell’s Tomato soup can with a string between it and an 8 1/2”x 11” sheet of paper with “OC’s blog” written on it.

Mr. woodcock, Looks like you’re a great candidate for one of those old geezer phones with the gigantic numbers. Clearly you no grasp of “modern” technology and/or, how to use it.

the shadow knows, I just so happen to go by my neighborhood Costco this afternoon and spoke to one of the tv “experts” there. I was surprised to hear from him that plasma sets are almost all discontinued. The LCD sets are lighter, easier to manufacture, lower consumption of energy and thus, more profitable in this day and age. The top of the line sets are currently around $2K but then dramatically fall to $1K for the next level down that almost look as good. After that, there is a far more discernible degrade in picture quality with sets in the $500-600 range. I did manage to have the guy swear by his personal plasma, citing that they were better for refresh rates and the sports he liked to watch. Hope that helps.

Techie stuff aside, I choose that $2,500 set at Costco. The image is simply jaw-dropping.

...also consider your viewing environment. Bright, well lit room vs. darker room. LCD may have an advantage there.

Jimbo, I’m sure that that song was particularly meaningful to those you managed too.🤡

A really good pitching AND hitting talent. That has a chance of reigniting baseball. And in O.C. California, no less.

Is anyone paying attention to this Shohei Ohtani kid? I was not around when “double threat” Babe Ruth was doing his thing, but this young Japanese phenom had a week for the ages.
1 reply
Not sure, shadow. Next time I go shopping for a new set I will go to Costco and take a look to see what looks best to my eyes. The “state of the art” these days is way too expensive, running $2k+ but WHAO, what a picture! Still, one choose a nice set, do some background research via internet for reliability, and purchase it for a modest amount. I would advise not to set limitations via one manufacturer only.
