Happy Super Bowl Sunday ~
We are adjusting to the granddog, Willow, being a weekend guest.

Enjoy the game.  Salmon for dinner tonight!

Willow has an intense gaze.

I have a SB box so that adds some interest. 

Weather was good for the run. 47 minutes for 4 miles. The important thing is I didn't need one of the ambulances that they had lined up at the finish line. :)

Admire  you so for your entry into a race. It’s wonderful that you found the Forum and that you can participate in such a venue.  Congratulations.  

Watching the Super Bowl…… could it ever be the Cleveland Browns or your loved New York team ??


From: JavaNY


You gotta believe Susan. The last Browns championship was pre-Superbowl. Had a bunch in the 50s if I recall correctly. Giants have had a bad decade since 2011.

A great game, nonetheless. Though I wasn't impressed with the Fox coverage, show, or commercials.

Good morning Susan, Paul, and all.  27 here this morn, would like a few more degrees but

we are lucky to be able to run in February at all.  Our threshold is around 18-19 and many

years all of this month is below that in the morning.  Always did run before work.  Some

people are offended that you go by their house in the dark but they'll just have o live with


I don't have much to do with these type sports but I do watch the commercials today that

make the news.  I remember liking the Bud Chylesdales and the Britney Spears commercials.

Some others but can't remember details.  I will be trying to catch at least part of the Dayton

500 or the Indy 500.  Though they seem to be much less than the ones back in the late 60s

or 70s, like the Superbird days or Richard Petty days.  I had a hard time watching when drivers

obviously were hitting other cars in their bid to win.  An $8k fine, should have been at least $80k.

Glad you made it through the race Paul.  Like I said before I went through one Heart Run and was

miles behind.  If I went these days I would be with the walkers.  Many people would be overjoyed

to be in the walking, the foot doctor I had, said.  My doctor acted like it was an ego thing but I feel

better jogging and it reduces my weight along with glucose much easier.  I might be useful in life

and to my family much longer than the standard Diabetic. 

Hope Finn is enjoying the granddog ok.  Our pups would trample him over and over, every time

they get inspired they take off barking and running.  When they hear one of us leaving a bedroom

it's a major celebration. 

Still cleaning up radios and other components and covering them with sheets when not in use.  The

dust takes years to collect and takes a lot of time and effort to remove. 

Enjoy the great weather all.  We have three days of sun with one day at 57, probably warmer down

at the coast.

Good morning, Paul ~

Enjoyed your comments regarding the game.  It was a good game…..nonplussed about the whole thing.  Commercials and Rhianna’s half time show.  Ugh.  I may be showing my age but it certainly was not the best.

Most of us from Cleveland are die-hard fans…..we are just happy with a “win” every now and then.  You are correct, they have never been in the Super Bowl.  And so it goes…. Happy Monday to all ~   Susan

Good morning, Ernie ~

The football game was good ~ We had no preference, although I believe one of the Eagles defensive coach was from St. Ignatius where Jim and his son went to high school.  

I didn’t see many of the commercials ~ what I did see, I was not impressed.  Thought the half time show was decently disgusting.  Hardly impressed with Rihanna or the dancers who looked like aliens.  Perhaps, they were dropped down from these unidentified objects flying above.

With that comment, have a good week.  Chilly day here.

Hi Miss Kitty ~

Thinking of you today and hoping that all is well with you.  We fly this week down to warmer weather and sunshine (I hope).  So tired of the gray sky that we have here by Lake Erie.

((hugs)). Susan

I guess everybody has their own taste, Susan. But my general thought is if you are up on stage alone or with a backup band/singers, you can show whether or not you have talent. If you are onstage with 800 other people, fireworks, smoke displays; whether talent exists become irrelevant.

Still tired from my run.

Good morning Paul, Susan, and all.  33 this morn, that seems better now.  I'm spoiled like

everyone, want all sunny warm days and nights.  Lots of years our worst snowstorm is

still to come in March, but my backhoe is ready and we're retired. 

I didn't see much clips of the commercials.  I think the Daytona 500 is on the 19th.  Look

forward to seeing at least some of it.  Would be the sons / daughters or grandchildren of

the drivers / teams that were winning when I became interested.  The actors were probably

trying to come up with something new or shocking, usually the way it goes.  I remember lots

of people hated Britney Spears but I thought it was funny when the dog barked.  smile

Trying to sell a ham radio, don't like selling.  All the used radios on the market were used by

a little old lady and only on Sundays after church. 

Still working on cleaning up my radio station and keeping it covered so the components aren't

crippled and look bad from dust over the years.  I have to take care of everyone's garbage today

but maybe I will get started on that cable I need to build, finally. 

Like all, I'm baffled by all the objects we are shooting down.  Seems strange to me that we couldn't

detect them until now with all the sophisticated equipment we have.  Or did this just start, are we

close to war like that general predicted.  Our pilots are probably psyched, waiting all those years for

a real target, getting awards, promotions, and such.  And not even having to kill any people or other

types of animals. 

Hope Kitty is getting along well too.  Learning how to keep safe from another attack. 

Everyone enjoy the nice weather days.
