The first TV show to ever be put into 
reruns was The Lone Ranger.

Eleuthera is the Greek word of freedom.


The East Antarctic Ice Sheet is as thick
as the Alps Mountains are high.

if one knows something worth knowing,
one should just spit it out,
get it right out there.

then forget it and get on with living. 
one may not think so, but this is good advice. 
but best of all: this good advice is totally free. 

desperation makes people stupid
while running a fast last
in a race of contrition
requiring certain stimuli 
while reminiscing over old Heehaw shows.
and, as anyone knows, this really blows. #

do not judge; history will take care of that.
after all, that's what history does best. #

One ounce of gold can be stretched 
into a thin wire measuring 50 miles.

those that cannot should not;
but remains open for debate 
by all those that can. #

Maine produces more wild blueberries
than anywhere else in the world. 

best man I ever was, was a man I never was.

all we need is someone to blame.
with someone to blame,
we might, then, survive ourselves. 

there are no guarantees.
we need know that right up front.
save a chicken. eat a duck. quack, quack!

scandals: oh, how we love our nasty little scandals.
more scandalous the scandal, the more we love it.
but that's just our human nature, isn't it?
we cannot wait for next juicy scandal.

then our name suddenly appears
in one of those nasty, juicy scandals,
and we nearly go berserk wondering:
just how the hell did that happen?

someone said the world is promiscuous.
am not one to argue for or against this.
quite frankly, could give a flying crap
whether world is promiscuous or not.

actually sleep through most of the crap
world so graciously flings our way.
and that I cannot escape, easily wipes away.

William Shakespeare was born and died on 
the  same day; April 23. 

The top of the Empire State Building
was originally built as a place to anchor blimps. 

There are more fake than real flamingos. 

One acre of peanuts will make about about
30,000 peanut butter sandwiches. 

seems quite foolish burning our bridges behind us.
 might possibly need those bridges in our retreat.
especially a hasty arranged retreat. 
one should always remain quick of feet. #
