Today is the first day of 2011, therefore 1111. Now wasn’t that just brilliant on my part. I see on the news the historians are trying to figure out what to call the past decade. The Otzs, 2Ks,Y2Os, 2000 where just some that were thrown out but what do we call it? Something to ponder.
Sandy’s Christmas cactus must be a New Year Day cactus as when we awoke this morning there were blooms on her plant.
Maybe a record for me as since December 18 I’ve managed to watch part or all of 22 college bowl games and there are still 13 bowl games remaining. On top of the college bowl games the NFL playoffs are just around the corner. Sandy says football, football what are you going to do after Super Bowl XLV. I say NASCAR is just around the corner as Daytona is February.
Before the bowl games started I switched over to the Rose Bowl Parade and happened to catch The Wild Mustang float and while I didn't see all the floats this one certainly got my vote for the Trophy float. Of course I like horses. I understand the Ronald Reagan float won this honor.
The float's theme is Mustang Monument, in honor of Madeleine Pickens' proposed eco-sanctuary for horses. Here's her concept: Instead of leaving tens of thousands of wild horses — who have been rounded up from public lands — languishing in substandard, expensive government holding facilities, set them free in a sanctuary on their native range.
One of the things I dislike about the BCS bowl games on New years day is they have more games (4) going on at the same time than I have TV's. Flipping back and forth is not a choice, so you pick one and go with it. I chose the Outback Bowl which had Florida vs. Penn St turns out to be the better of the four. The other three were blow outs.
Until next time. . . .MtnAire Travlers.
