Good 40º drizzly morning. More rain today, then a break. Another 1¼" in the rain gauge. Since the 1st of March we've gotten 6" of that stuff!
I was watching the news Sunday night and OVamit was shown leaving his plane in Cuba. It was raining... but does he hold the umbrella over his wife's head? NOOOOOO... only his! GAG GAG GAG Self-serving Self-important ADAM HENRY!
Ok, speaking of OVamit ... remember this.. LOL!
Ok, picture of the day.. I had put this on my FB page already but needed to share, as the bridge and Presidio look so beautiful! So enjoyed trips to San Francisco with Darling and the great food. (OK, I GOOFED!! THis is Fort Point, not the Presidio! Thanks Owen. Brain fart on this end!!!!)

Historically this date..
1622 – Jamestown massacre: Algonquian Indians kill 347 English settlers aroundJamestown, Virginia, a third of the colony's population.
.... Good grief, sounds like they should have had a treaty~
1765 – The British Parliament passes the Stamp Act that introduces a tax to be levied directly on its American colonies.
... THIS MEANS WAR!
1984 – Teachers at the McMartin preschool in Manhattan Beach, California are charged with satanic ritual abuse of the children in the school. The charges are later dropped as completely unfounded.
....The trial lasted seven years and cost $15 million, the longest and most expensive criminal case in the history of the United States legal system, and ultimately resulted in no convictions. Can you believe it... Chuck Norris, the actor, was identified by one child as being one of the abusers!
1997 – Tara Lipinski, age 14 years and 10 months, becomes the youngest champion women's World Figure Skating Champion.
And births this date include....
1908 – Louis L'Amour, American author (d. 1988)
Jerry's favorite author!
1912 – Karl Malden, American actor (d. 2009)
1920 – James Brown, American actor (d. 1992)
Awww.... I loved Rin Tin Tin and even have an autographed picture from Mr. Brown!
.... and look at this, the little boy in Rin Tin Tin was Lee Aaker who played Rusty... OMG
He went from 'so cute' to 'so weird'!
1931 – William Shatner, Canadian actor
1933 – May Britt, Swedish actress
She met Sammy Davis, Jr. in 1959. They began dating, and, after a brief engagement, were married on November 13, 1960. Their wedding caused controversy. A rumor or myth, John F. Kennedy and Robert F. Kennedy told Frank Sinatra to tell Davis not to marry May until after the 1960 Presidential Election. At that time interracial marriage was forbidden by law in 31 U.S. states, and only in 1967 were those laws (by then down to 17 states) ruled unconstitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court.
She must have 'retired' because there are no recent photos of her anywhere!
1976 – Reese Witherspoon, American actress
Bruiser not happy with being out so he sat on the table and just watched... then finally laying on his mat...
I wanted something different from the corned beef for lunch, so I decided to make paté.
Into the food processor went the left over corned beef, some horseradish sauce and mayonnaise. Processed til well mixed and smooth.
I spread some on this puffy "Magic Pop" and topped with pickled asparagus. YUMMMMM! (as you can see I was already gnawing on the edges!)
Magic Pops can be purchased here
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Tuesday. Ciao.

National Goof Off Day
Now here's a day that just about everybody can relax and enjoy. It's a day to do anything and everything.....except what you're supposed to do today.
Assuming you won't get in trouble at work or school, go ahead and play some golf, or play games all day. Spend extra time surfing the net. Go out and spend the day window shopping with your favorite friend. Or, just read sit down and read a book or watch TV. This day is set aside for you to do anything you enjoy doing.
A few years ago, a survey was performed to identify the most popular activity for goofing off. The top activity was playing video games. Who conducted the survey? Ninetendo.......no surprise. It kinda makes you wonder just who might have had the brainstorm to create this day......hmmmm. Nowadays, the most popular Goof Off Day activity is likely playing games on the internet, or on our Smart Phones.
