Flotsam and Jetsam

Miscellaneous thoughts and observations.

Happy 78th birthday to the greatest winner in pro sports history - Mr. Bill Russell... I sooo want one of these... Todd Pletcher, one of and perhaps the greatest horse trainers in history got his 3,000th victory yesterday. His horses have made over $213 million and more than a few dollars for me and my friends. My buddy Paul makes any Pletcher and Johnny Velazquez horse an automatic bet... 11 Cool Thank You notes sent by famous people... Happy Georgia Day! On this day in 1733 James "Oggie" Oglethorpe founded Georgia - the last of the Original 13 Colonies... The Eastwood Chrysler ad gets the story exactly backwards. First you have growth then you get the jobs. You don't do jobs hoping the growth will follow... In an attempt to change the conversation about contraceptive services the Obama Administration orders all oral contraceptives to be bacon flavored so Muslims and Jews can be as outraged as the Catholics...  The strangest tattoo parlor ad you will ever see...
