I wonder how many Phils there have been since the beginning of the celebration.

Sure hope an early Spring is predicted 'cause frankly, I've had enough of this damned Winter! :)

Indeed, his boney warriors haunted my dreams for years.

One of his last efforts. Worth a watch though a bit long winded.

P.J. O’Rourke, 74.

Parliament Of Whores was a great read. He had a lot of great reads.

I recall him describing "Poppet" letting out a shriek. Not knowing what to do, his better half arrived, plopped her before the television and gave her a sippy cup. O'Rourke mused about giving sippy cups to various tin-pot dictators.

A Maine woman recognized by the New England Patriots as their oldest fan has died at age 106.

Myrtle Milledge, of the town of Mexico, was well into her 40s when the Patriots became a franchise in the old American Football League in 1960.

Why couldn’t it have been you?” said my old friend, Jack Shafer, once the bad tidings had settled. Such a pal. No, really I hope for the same.

I loved and considered for a Thought for the Day:
We were on the Big Island, Hawaii proper, the place where migrating Polynesians originally landed more than 1,500 years ago and where Captain Cook died in 1779. Cook was the first haole (a Hawaiian word meaning “person whose luggage is still at the Los Angeles airport”) to visit Hawaii. His crew spread venereal disease through the islands, the Hawaiians beat Captain Cook to death with clubs, and the tourist trade has continued with only minor alterations to the present day.

Shane Warne, 52, heart attact.

Greatest leg spin bowler in history, scourge of England in the 1990s and early noughties. Grudgingly respected baggy green cap wearer. Second highest test wicket taker in history.

Shame, Shane.
