years in a row! Gotta Love It!
Welcome to fall
baseball once again...
After being out of
it for so many years, it is an odd sensation as a fan to have a legitimate
shot at winning it all for the third time in a row. Baseball is a
funny game. Just look at the way the Dodgers won 44 games in a row
only to come back to earth and barely play .500 ball. We will see
what happens but it's great to see all the W flags flying and the
anticipation of a post season run. The first team to 11 wins takes
Pictured above is
Marisa Miller (of SI swimsuit issue fame) sporting her Cubs gear when
throwing out the first pitch some years ago. During the rebuilding
years, the Cubs had to use pretty girls and gimmicks to get butts in
seats. Those days are gone as there is so much to see when you field
a decent team (thank you Theo, Jed and Ricketts family). Time to
break out the jersey again Marisa (that is if you are still a fan). I
bet she's a Dodgers girl.
And now for a new
picture above- Can you guess where it is by looking "through the
progressive city in an otherwise gun toting, conservative state is really
'batty'. A capital city, almost the size of NYC, was home to Matthew
McConaughey's naked bongos in the park incident." Can you guess the location?
Correct answers will be given recognition but half the fun is trying to
figure it out. The correct answer will be revealed in the subsequent
issue. Good luck and have fun.

Beach, St. Maarten - Keyhole Answer
island country plays host to one of the greatest (and
scariest) landing patterns in the world. 747s are so close you can
reach out and almost touch them. Beware of the jet blast on takeoff
as it can blow you away... "
Last month, Bob Conwaywon the location by guessing correctly. He correctly
answered not only St. Maarten (which would have been fine) but also Maho
beach. Thanks for playing and well done.
This island has
two sides to it - a Dutch side and a French side.
It may interest
you to know how the island was supposedly divided.Story has it that when it was decided to
divide St. Martin / San Maarten, the fairest way was determined to be to
have two priests start walking from opposite ends of the island and where
they met would be the boundary between the French and Dutch sides.Each community selected their
representative, a French catholic priest and a Dutch Protestant pastor. At
the selected time they each started walking towards the other.Legend has it that the French priest was
excessively hosted by all the Dutch folks on the way while the ditch pastor
consumed nothing but water.This
explains why the Dutch side of the island s significantly larger than the
French side. Don't know if it true, but a good story nevertheless.
Maartin has been destroyed by hurricane Irma. And I mean destroyed.
Of course, I had
no way of knowing this kind of devastation was headed their way when I
penned this communication, nor would I think there would be so much
devastation across so many lands. The Caribbean will be a mess for
some time and Houston, the State of Florida and the commonwealth of Puerto
Rico are devastated...

ROCKET BOOSTER Elon Musk did not pivot when his rockets
failed. “If you already
know it's going to work, it's not an experiment, and only through
experimentation can you get real invention. The most important inventions
come from trial and error with lots of failure, and the failure is
critical, and it's also embarrassing.” – Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon

It will make you LOL
LOL vs. haha (or
My opinion is that you use
haha when you are responding to an unfunny or dim-witted comment. LOL
is more a signal that you are amused. That's just my take - hehe.
A recent study says...
“LOL,” once the face of teen
textspeak, is now favored primarily by the oldest demographic of Facebook
laughers, with a median age of about 28. Emoji smiley faces are used most
frequently by the youngest subset of Facebookers, typically those in their
teens and early twenties. “Haha” and “hehe” occupy the space in between.
The study found clear
preferences when it comes to gender as well. Women are more likely to use
emojis and “LOL”; men more likely to type out a “haha” or “hehe.”
