Geese ~ Historical Picture of the Day ~ Dodger Stadium ~ Strawberry Muffins ~ Patrick & Alice Reardon ~ Biofreeze ~ Alex Corsaro ~ National Devil's Food Cake Day

Good 46º dark cloudy morning, again! Stayed in the 60ºs yesterday and here we didn't get any rain, but over to the west of us they did and my friend down by Sacramento said it POURED BUCKETS down there.
Yesterday out in the backyard were a couple of Canadian Geese just resting by the tubs of water..........
Picture of the Day.... “Pin boys” manually line up bowling pins before automatic pinsetters were invented (1914).
Interesting about Dodger Stadium.....
This baseball park is occasionally called by the metonym Chavez Ravine (the name of the canyon where the stadium is located). Dodger Stadium is the home field of the Los Angeles Dodgers the city's Major League Baseball (MLB) franchise. The stadium was built in less then 3 years opened on the 10th of April, 1962. The construction was financed by private sources and costed $23 million.
Dodger Stadium is currently the third-oldest ballpark in MLB, ranking well behind Wrigley (1916, Chicago) and Fenway (1912, Boston). Another distinguishing feature of the place is its symmetrical outfield, the only in the whole National League.

This might be interesting:

  • Dodger Stadium appeared in several popular movies, such as The Fast and the FuriousStar Trek, Transformers and Fantastic Four.
  • Dodger Stadium sells the most hot dogs of all MLB parks.

 My friend Charline's mom had box seats at the stadium and Charline Aubin, her bf Sid Hackle (LASD SR Capt), Jerry, and I would go to the games and sit in those seats. They were right over the Dodger dougout (1) and the cover (2) over the dougout is where we'd set our beers! When the players came out to play they would always say hi to us!

If you have pain like arthritis or lower back or shoulder pain, then here is a great pain reliever. I am not one to take pain pills of any kind. I have arthritis in my hands and lower back pain. When I went to my physical therapist she recommended Biofreeze. It comes as a spray, gel, roll on, cream, or patches.
I use the roll on and it takes the pain away amazingly fast. I buy it from the therapist's office. It is sold on line at
Also sold at most chiropractic offices, Walmart,, Walgreens, and saw it at Costco. Ask your pharmacist.
My Italian son, Alex Corsaro, was up in Canby Oregon (near Portland) yesterday for The Warrior Dash (5k with obstacles and 10k) ... Won a medal ... pictures of him and the 5k....

Shower time!!! LOL.
On the link above check out the obstacles.
Alex participated in the 5k and the 10k (got medals for both) and his girlfriend Maria participated in the 10k with him. She got a medal for that too.

All I know. Nuff said. Happy Sunday. Ciao.

Observed annually on May 19, National Devil’s Food Cake Day is enjoyed by chocolate cake lovers throughout the country and around the world.
Devil’s Food cake is a heavenly chocolate cake.  It differs from a regular chocolate cake by its darker color and tends to be more moist and airy.  Devil’s Food cake recipes use hot or boiling water as the primary liquid. Cocoa is typically utilized in the batter, as opposed to chocolate, and coffee can be added for a distinctive flavor.  A delicious chocolate frosting usually accompanies the cake.
Recipes for Devil’s Food cakes often appeared alongside recipes for Angel Food cakes.  One of the earliest recipes appeared in the August 10, 1898, edition of the Hagerstown Exponent of Hagerstown, Indiana.
