Random Friday Morning Thoughts

  • That was some high entertainment in the first day of the Tourney yesterday (especially if you stayed up for the Texas game last night.)
  • The Fifth Grader in The House filled out a bracket which I noticed was filled with crazy predictions. Me: "You realize those numbers out beside the team names mean something, right?" Her:  "I used them on the left side of the bracket. On the right side I decided to trick it up."  I was just proud that she used the phrase "trick it up". 
  • Twitter unveiled a function yesterday which allows you to discover your first tweet. Mine was boring ("Watching fox4news"), but the date beats almost everyone: 2/27/07.
  • The producer of the Mark Davis Show promotes her teenage daughter's singing career like its her only hope. I hope she throws in a "Honey, this might not work out" every now and then. 
  • Decatur hired a head football coach last night who comes from 6A Colleyville Heritage where he took them to seven straight playoff appearances and compiling a record of 60-19. With a resume like that it seems like he took a step back. 
  • It may be years before they find that plane. It's got to be at the bottom of the ocean. 
  • "The government's top economic experts warn that, without immediate action by Congress, America could slip into a financial panic and a distressing scenario would unfold.More banks could fail, including some in your community. The stock market would drop even more, which would reduce the value of your retirement account. The value of your home could plummet. Foreclosures would rise dramatically." - President Bush in September 2008 (as I remember how the economy had been driven off the cliff.)
  • "I looked the man in the eye. I found him to be very straight forward and trustworthy and we had a very good dialogue. I was able to get a sense of his soul." - President Bush on Vladimir Putin in 2001.
  • According to the Update, a guy was arrested in Rhome yesterday for "solicitation of a minor." A guy with the same name, who lists Decatur as his home, is an accomplished professional dirt bike racer. That's either the same guy or a guy who just became very unlucky simply due to his name.
