Supposed to get up to near 60 here Tuesday and I do
think that is an official record of sorts. A real heatwave
we all around here are really appreciating.
The snow is nearly gone and with that. you just know
another storm must be looming to cover the ground again.
The wildlife here are taking this break with much joy.
I have never seen so many birds and squirrels scrambling
about making the most of the weather.
MY OPINION ON….
There seems to be a trend in the sportsworld these days.
The big name celebrity status jocks are all now apologizing
for using all kinds of drugs and such. To them, they think this
is okay. When they get caught..THEN they come forward and
"fess up". What in the heck does that tell our youth of today?
They sit and watch them and use them as their role models and
figure..well if they can do that so can I. If I get caught THEN
I will CONFESS. HOW WRONG! These atheletes may get fined
and they may get suspended for sometime. They may get
arrested and then "get off" by their high powered lawyers.
I don’t think they are getting stiff enough penalties for
doing what they are doing. A slap on the wrist and they get away
with it. Disgusting.
I am not naming names here.. I am just saying that the sports world
ought to make it CLEAR to the youth of today, that if you decide to
do such things there will be stiff judgements ruled against you.
You won’t be able to enjoy the sport you love the most might be
a good idea. Athletes nowdays are swayed to perform better and
make records and out do the next guy or gal, but they still get to
perform despite the penalties. Mere monetary fines etc just don’t
cut it. Guess that is why I like NASCAR. You cannot drive a car
going 190 miles an hour and be high or drugged. It takes skill
and alertness. The cars are gone over so expertly that NO ONE
has any disadvantage over the next one. If you are caught..
well you are in big trouble. You learn they do NOT fool around.
Well that is just my opinion, for what it is worth.
P.S. I have not recieved any spaces alerts in over two days..
wonder what is up with MSN? Today (Wednesday) we are gettng heavy
rain and some threat of high winds and thunderstorms. Part
of the system that went through Oklahoma and devistated them
with many tornadoes. My thoughts and prayers go out to those
who lost their loved ones. It is more like SPRING weather here than
winter. Pretty dark and gloomy. Have had quite the reaction (sinus-wise)
to this big shift. Hoping to get through this stormy period with the power
on and the basement dry.
HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A GREAT DAY!!
