JARTS, LOGOS, Playing House, Thunderstorms

The first in eight reasons if you grew up in the 70's you should be dead.



Can your mind comprehend a more deadly toy than a weighted spear that kids hurl through the air like a missile? No one ever obeyed the actual manufacturer’s rules, we just flung these damn things everywhere.  We threw them. They stuck where they landed. If they happened to land in your skull, well, then you should have moved.

After roughly 6,700 emergency-room visits and the deaths of three children between 1978 and 1988, they finally outlawed Jarts on December 19, 1988. I suppose it needed to be banned, but a part of me is sad that kids today won’t have the battle scars and Jart survival stories we had. Goodbye Jart – you were an impaling arrow of death, but I loved you anyway.

Logo's and branding for companies are is a science but sometimes that science FAILS!

I just heard on TV that we need to stop eating fruit because it is rotting your teeth away unless you use this special toothpaste.

I was up late with the Brewer game and the storms last night.  Columbus received 0.92 inches, Madison 1.50 inches and Portage 2.33 inches!  We were sort of in between the systems.   I suspect Columbus should get 3-5 more inches of rain in the next 6 days.

If you are wondering about the upcoming days and WHEN the rain is due here are the times with the best chances for thunderstorms

hmmmmmmm - it will be easier to post when there WON'T be a good chance of thunderstorms.

These are the times when there is not at least a 50% chance of thunderstorms

Tuesday NOW until 3PM
Thursday 6AM to 8PM
Friday 2PM on

I was flipping around TV a few weeks ago and was on the USA Channel.  I rarely see anything on USA but a blond caught my attention.  Was she the TJ MAX blond? I had seen her before somewhere.  But then something happened in the show and I chuckled and watched the last 10 minutes. Sort of funny.

Saturday morning DJ and I were drinking coffee an and the show was on and I said "I saw part of this show a few weeks ago".  We ended up watching two episodes and DJ says '"Why have I never heard of this show, it's REALLY good".

Playing House - we now have VOD's the show (Video on Demand) and really had a hard time not binging.
