Wonderful Life

I love this cover of Black's Wonderful Life by Smith & Burrows. It can be a wonderful life if you let it, can it not?

Atlas Shrugged - Part III

Part three of the trilogy debuts in one week. Watch for it in a theater near you.

How do you spell English?

This head-scratcher was posed to me by my son while doing his homework last night. Instead of my stock "How do you think it's spelled?" response I was kind of mystified and said to him, "Come on, you have English every day in school, you must see the word all the time and know how to spell it. For crying out loud it's one of your core subjects."

He replied, "No daddy, it's called Language Arts."

I didn't know what to say. It's English. I've seen it and they are learning how to use the English language. There are no other languages involved, there is no art as far as I can tell, just grammar, spelling, etc. He has Art and it's entirely another subject and grade. Oh well, perhaps if they called it what it is, maybe he would know how to spell it. Just saying.

You know I'm no good

Felt like posting this today. A drunk Amy Winehouse sings better than 99% of the auto-tuned manufactured pop divas of today. Here she is singingYou know I'm no good live in London. R.I.P. Amy, we miss you.

Florida sweeps the worlds in Pro Men's Open and Men's Masters

Paul "McBeast" McBeth and Ken "Champ" Climo took the Pro Men's Open and Pro Men's Masters division in the PDGA Worlds in Oregon this past Saturday. Both play out of Florida. 

McBeast three-peated in the Open division and Kenny took the Masters. Kenny now has multiple crowns,  having won the Open multiple times in the past and now having won the Masters more than once. In total Climo is now the proud owner of 14 world championship titles.

Both wins were by one stroke, the Men's Open division coming on a par five fifth playoff hole. Ricky Wysocki managed a par on the hole while McBeth made a pressure uphill putt for birdie and took the crown for the third straight time. In the Women's Pro Open division Catrina Allen took the title. Full results can be found here.
