My thoughts are with you Henry. Today would have been my Dad's 84th birthday. Pearl Harbor Day.

peter

Curtis Granderson is a really nice guy, and I wish him well in his career on the Mets. Yankees fans have their heads spinning, as the team picks up the Red Sox World Champion center fielder, Carlos Beltran, another great outfielder, re-sign Kuroda, and lose the team's greatest second baseman ever, all within 48 hours.

We watch obscure movies and docs here at the cabin.Last night we watched Knuckleball,featuring Hough,Neikro,Wakefield and
Dickey.Interesting brotherhood of pitchers.


marlene on Kindle

Kindle is a pita.

peter

This week I watched a DVD of the Prince and the Pauper, a 1937 Warner Brothers movie. Great cast, with Errol Flynn, Claude Rains, Alan Hale, Sr. Even had a Christian message. They don't make 'em like that anymore.

Jane

Henry,

I'm so sorry.

Jane

Jimmy,

I meant before the cruise, unless you decide to go on it with us.I'll come down a day early, just for the honor. Hopefully Caro will too. Alice?

Miss Marple

peter, Did you ever see "Stanley and Livingston" starring Spencer Tracey!

I don't know how that one got past the gatekeepers at TMC, but I saw it a few years ago. Very pro-British Empire and Christianity.

Good clod and frosty morning from the Midwest!

Miss Marple

Well, cold, too. The clod is me! LOL!

centralcal

Just catching up on the threads. Henry, so sorry to hear the news about your Dad.

peter

thanks for the tip, Miss Marple, will look for it on library shelves...

Miss Marple

You are welcome, Peter!

A more well-known movie with similar themes is "Mrs. Miniver" starring Greer Garson. It happened to be shown on TMC shortly after we went into Afghanistan, which made the story more relevant.

henry

Thanks all for the prayers and kind words. It is a bright, sunny day after a long night's sleep. I have my father's example to guide me going forward, and friends including here at JOM to share in the good memories.

Brian

Maguire, your grammar is awful.

Jack is Back!

Marlene:

Today's beach! Currently 76F and we are approaching our high today of 84F.

You pays your money and you takes your chances.

Whoa, global warming's regional to Florida, and by evidence of the photograph, the sea is alternately rising and falling.

hit and run

It's good to hear from you, henry.

God bless you.

centralcal

Remembering Pearl Harbor. Is this true?

Michael Goldfarb ‏@thegoldfarb 10m

History Channel says Roosevelt was doing coke 4 hours after attack on Pearl. I did not know that.

Sue

That's just mean Jack. It's 26 deg here. And icy. But I do have electricity since 1:30 this morning.

Brian

That looks more like The Gulf Of Mexico than The Atlantic Ocean off The Hamptons.

hit and run

It looks even more like the Atlantic off the eastern coast of Florida.

hit and run

the sea is alternately rising and falling.

Heh. I think it does so based on Obama's approval rating. Obama's up in the polls - seas fall. Obama's down - seas rise.

DrJ

That's just mean Jack.

Agreed. We got about two inches of global warming last night. It does snow here once in a while, but not that often -- maybe once every five years or so -- so this is a bit unusual.

I think this marks the end of our tomatoes and peppers. And the cats are very confused.

Brian

What stretch of beach on the east coast of Florida looks like that?

Walter

Henry, so sorry to hear of your loss. The time we have with each other is truly a gift.

Jack is Back!

Brian,

We live in Florida and only use our home in Southamtpton when its not rented. This beach is at Hammock Dunes, between St. Augustine and Daytona. Its a coquina beach. You can't see the rocks but there is a mile long stretch of very dangerous rock out near the low tide line.

Typepad insists I log out before posting again. Sure thing.

Ok, on the computer now, so let me go back to that Harry quote...Well, it's in quotes in the article, so I assume it's exactly what he said...

I will also note that there are 150,000 million different families that get their health care through their employees

TIL (things I learn): there are well over 150,000,000,000 (150 billion) families in the US.

I will also note that there are 150,000 million different families that get their health care through their employees

TIL: (if the average family is estimated at 3 persons) there are well over 450,000,000,000 (450 billion) people in the US who have employee-based insurance.

Wait. What?

Employee-based?

I will also note that there are 150,000 million different families that get their health care through their employees

TIL: there are 150 billion families in the US who have employees. Employees who offer the family for which they work insurance.

I must be lower down the economic scale than I had thought. Other than the occasional babysitter and the even less frequent house cleaner, I haven't ever had a family employee.

And no babysitter or house cleaner has ever offered me insurance!

Brian

The absence of moderate waves there is deceiving.

narciso,

Now you see why he was played by the serious Smothers brother in Casino, they titled him Sen. Harrison, but that's Searchlight Harry.

72d Pearl Harbor Day!

Jack is Back!

Brian,

Hardly any wind - a mere Zephyr today. Sea is very calm. No surf. But that is abnormal. Most times we have a steady 4 to 6 foot breakers. Flagler Beach down the road is surf bums paradise.

""When hospitals classify people as 'outpatients,' on observation status, rather than as admitted inpatients, those patients cannot obtain Medicare nursing home coverage and may also have hospital bills they would not have if properly considered inpatients," says Judith Stein, "

I'm so sorry for your loss.

Well, not even the pitcher knows where the knuckleball is going.

Duke football playing for a championship? Harmonic convergence.

Beasts of England

For what it's worth, the Gulf side of Florida (and Alabama) has some of the finest, white-sand beaches on the planet.

Good luck to that other school in my state today. Pulling for Duke and State, as well. Hell, it's a longshot, but we made it back against LSU a couple of years ago. Anything can happen. A re-match would be interesting.

Some Guy

BOE,

Yesterday I saw a car with Georgia license plates, but the plate had a large Alabama logo and the first two characters of the number were "RT". Never seen anything like that.

Some Guy

Henry,

Very sorry for your lose. I've never been the same since I lost my dad. Be well.

Stephanie

Georgia issues specialty license plates for most of the major colleges and for all of the in state colleges. Also other specialty plates for educators, vets, enviros, etc. They all have some sort of logo on them.

And people are stoopit enough to pay voluntary taxes to get them.

Tennessee offers them as well, Some Guy!

Love all those!

Since the surgery, I've become a weepy bitch. Oxymoron that's me! Damn you hormones!

Steph,

Glad to see you feeling better. The condition might be like the movie where a lawyer was shot in the head and then became a better person.

narciso,

Really. MarkO 'regarding henry', what are you trying to say here?

Stephanie on kindle armchair QB Statue of Liberty FTW

ARRRG. I need to be a cast iron bitch. I want to be a cast iron bitch. Next thing you know I'll be falling for democrat sob stories and protesting for the chillin. Eeeeek.

Thanks, Matt!

ISTM, the American audiences had lots more beaming faces during the performance, while the Spanish audience seemed to go more for conducting along. Funny, that.

Henry: So sorry and sad for your loss. Inspirational to read your comment this morning about the bright and sunny day. Your Dad is looking at you through that sunshine and smiling. He has left a piece of him in you.

Actually its up beach from where you think it is. Toward Jungle Hut road.

However, since you're a baker, beware you could get a year in jail for refusing to bake a cake.

Okay, guys and gals. You want flash mobs at Christmas?

Interesting day today. On and off lake effect snow.

A bald eagle landed in a tree about 100 feet in front of our house, stayed there for about 45 minutes, then circled low a few times before taking off. Got pix and video.

Later on I chain-sawed up the remainder of our sequoia.

It started as a finger-sized planting 15 years ago but, foolish me, I planted it ten feet from the house. I didn't think it would take. It grew so well -- a foot thick -- I'd plant another one a good distance away from the house. Lovely foliage.

NKonIPad

Henry-- just catching up. Deepest condolences for your loss. Take care.

Rick Ballard

"The condition might be like the movie where a lawyer was shot in the head and then became a better person."

Hmmm... How many shots did it take?

Stephanie on kindle armchair QB Statue of Liberty FTW

I know jungle hut road. We're trying to put together a golf trip with some friends to rent one of the houses in cinnamon beach this spring. Lovely homes that work well for multi-couple get togethers. Only problem is lack of casino. Y'all really need to get a casino in St Augustine or Daytona or Jacksonville. Put your tribal feathers on and get crackin!

AliceH

Off to shovel more snow.

What ever happened to those eager and energetic 14 year old boys who used to go door to door offering to shovel old folks' driveways?

Stephanie on kindle armchair QB Statue of Liberty FTW

Lol Rick.

Mwah Iggy. Xoxoxo. All the guys here are teddy bears.

Stephanie on kindle armchair QB Statue of Liberty FTW

Ok I'm having trouble getting into these early games today.

JiB what did you ever decide to do about the "big bow" present?

Ignatz

That was a lovely link by Stephanie.

However as a google lawyer who has not yet been reformed via gunshot wound to the ol occiput, I'm almost certain those government agents, in uniform I might add, and to top it off playing on US gubmint property, violated my Constitutional rights to be an a-hole Scrooge severely and those of every right thinking person as well I might add, by playing that particular tune.
Jesu Joy of Mans's Desiring?
Come on! Where's Stedman?!
He could at least arrest the white guys.

Stephanie,

Why do we need a casino? Go to Jacksonville of Daytona and take the slot cruises. We finally got rid of the Internet cafes - I am not a fan of casinos at all. Why don't y'all put one in Atlanta?:)

Ignatz

--What ever happened to those eager and energetic 14 year old boys who used to go door to door offering to shovel old folks' driveways?--

They downloaded the app.

I know, I know, but this is rather compelling and one of the best I've seen in 50 years of reporting on the JFK killing.

Now you know what's in it so you can take it or leave it.

Stephanie on kindle armchair QB Statue of Liberty FTW

Yeah. Where were the national parks service goons to put a stop to the oppressive religious imposition on gubmint property by gubmint tools of oppression? If a high school choir can't spontaneously sing on the steps of the Lincoln memorial how can these militaristic folks get away with a coordinated imposition on these unsuspecting strangers.

Beasts of England

Pure gold, Ig!

"I'm almost certain those government agents, in uniform I might add, and to top it off playing on US gubmint property"

That's what my dear one was saying through her tears: "What does anyone have against Christmas?"

Stephanie on kindle armchair QB Statue of Liberty FTW

(((Why do we need a casino? Go to Jacksonville of Daytona and take the slot cruises. We finally got rid of the Internet cafes - I am not a fan of casinos at all. Why don't y'all put one in Atlanta?:) )))

The slot cruises have awful payout rates. The group we play golf with are big gamblers (they flew down to Biloxi yesterday for a free play weekend) and they like diversions after golf.

Atlanta is talking about what to do with Turner field once the braves leave in 2017 and they are talking casino there. Bets the heck out of their last bright idea for a casino at underground Atlanta where no one in their right mind would venture after dark.

OSU v. Oklahoma ain't blowing any air up my dress.

It'd be a mighty cold breeze there DoT.

How many of the UCF players have even seen snow? They said about 30%.

Stephanie on kindle armchair QB Statue of Liberty FTW

Funny that both early games are in the freeze zone.

The SEC game is indoors. The ACC game is in Charlotte. Aren't they due for an ice mess today?

Jack is Back!

Our Pro-Am starts tomorrow with 24 club teams including Atlanta Athletic and Oakmont. But I doubt there will be any gambling going on.:)

Charlotte's not getting any ice from what I can see. High today in the 50s, dips into the 40s around dinner time, then low around 37 overnight....

Stephanie on kindle armchair QB Statue of Liberty FTW

Good hit. The maps they showed here had Charlotte in the iffy zone but you looked to be in the yucky zone. How goes it there?

In the 70s yesterday and it's 45 now here. YUCK.

The club is holding their Santa open 4 person scramble today. Canned goods donation to play and free beer. And I'm sitting on the couch :(

No ice for us Stephanie--as very frequently happens, it will be just north of us if it happens.

Lows in the high 30s.

I am very sorry for your loss. It is hard to lose a loved one at this time year.

My father died twenty-five years ago today. He was a WW II veteran. He and my mother were married on Thanksgiving Day and had eight children.
