Since its 90 degrees here in Houston, I thought a little cool "Summertime" would be appropriate. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=10IVmfjoNaM

I was surfing YouTube and found this wonderful song about Ellis Island. "Isle of Hope," written by Brendan Graham, is performed here by world renowned Irish tenor Emmet Cahill during the "Joy to the World" Christmas concert presented by the World Outreach Fund. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4QG7wbVt0Og

here is the article I meant to post Instead of following father’s OU legacy, UT’s Casey Thompson will write his own in storied rivalry https://www.dallasnews.com/sports/texas-longhorns/2021/10/05/instead-of-following-fathers-ou-legacy-uts-casey-thompson-will-write-his-own-in-storied-rivalry/

Nice Article The pageantry of Texas-OU returns this weekend. But soon, the game won’t be the same It will be an emotional Saturday, a proud father watching his son follow his three-decade-old path. Same rivalry game. Same position. Same Cotton Bowl stadium, taking the field through the same storied tunnel. The contrast, though, will be equally vivid. Charles Thompson co-quarterbacked Oklahoma’s crimson and cream Sooners to Red River Showdown victories in 1987 and 1988. Casey Thompson will quarterback Texas’ burnt orange and white Longhorns in Saturday’s 117th edition of the rivalry. https://www.dallasnews.com/sports/texas-longhorns/2021/10/07/the-pageantry-of-texas-ou-returns-this-weekend-but-soon-the-game-wont-be-the-same/

How many of you have checked if their computer will run Windows 11? https://www.microsoft.com/en-in/windows/windows-11 Scroll down to the Get Ready section and download the app. My 4 year old HP laptop won't run it (CPU not new enough) but my Lenovo will.

From Maggie's Farm A poem to which we can relate I remember the corned beef of my childhood, And the bread that we cut with a knife, When the children helped with the housework, And the men went to work not the wife. The cheese never needed a fridge, And the bread was so crusty and hot, The children were seldom unhappy, And the wife was content with her lot, well, maybe, maybe not. I remember the milk from the bottle, With the yummy cream on the top, Our dinner came hot from the oven, And not from a freezer; or shop. The kids were a lot more contented, They didn’t need money for kicks, Just a game with their friends in the road, And sometimes the Saturday flicks. I remember the shop on the corner, Where biscuits for pennies were sold Do you think I’m a bit too nostalgic? Or is it….I’m just getting old? Bathing was done in a wash tub, With plenty of rich foamy suds But the ironing seemed never ending As mom pressed everyone’s ‘duds’. I remember the slap on my backside, And the taste of soap if I swore Anorexia and diets weren’t heard of And we hadn’t much choice what we wore. Do you think that bruised our ego? Or our initiative was destroyed? We ate what was put on the table And I think life was better enjoyed.

While horrific, I still did get a chuckle out of the last line of this report: The victim reportedly sat on the tracks before he was struck by the subway. His head fell down from the elevated tracks and landed on a sidewalk, police sources said, while his body remained on the tracks. He died on scene. https://nypost.com/2021/07/02/man-decapitated-by-train-on-nyc-subway-tracks/?utm_campaign=nypdaily&utm_source=sailthru&utm_medium=email&utm_content=20210702&utm_term=NYP%20-%20Morning%20Report
