  • Thankfully Netflix is trying to take over Valentine’s Day by releasing ‘House of Cards’ today.  I should have watched it at midnight but then remembered it ain’t going anywhere and always available.  Hopefully it starts with a quick recap.
  • When I’m really into a show like ‘House of Cards’, ‘Breaking Bad’, or ‘Mad Men’ I have this fear that a lead actor will die and what’s left of the show is ruined or just stops altogether.  Yup, that’s me, Mr Positive.
  • At the end of the day, right when I get into bed, I’ll often reflect on the day and grade myself  as a husband and then as a father.  Unfortunately there’s no curve.
  • I’m really impressed with the work that’s going into my retaining wall, and to think I planned on doing it myself.  While it’s costing me an arm and a leg, I think it’s going to be worth it as I know the work will be done right and the kids can actually play in the backyard.
  • BoyGeeding will turn two years of ago on Sunday.  His party is on Saturday and WifeGeeding has been cleaning GeedingManor like all get out.  She still has laryngitis so all she does is whisper to me, and since I don’t have the best of hearing, it’s getting frustrating.
  • Amazing how much snow NY/NJ got before and after the Super Bowl, they sure did luck out.
  • That Dale Hansen commentary sure did go viral, he’ll be on Ellen’s show today.  It will be weird to see him on our NBC affiliate.  I know a lot of local news legends have been taking pay cuts as of late, so this exposure should help with contract negotiations.
  • Yesterday’s spitting image comment literally made me LOL.
  • The Allen Eagles football team won the state championship and not only can players buy championship rings, so can every student.  A lot of folks this is an outrage, I think it’s silly for high school champions to get a ring.
  • The TICKET had a segment yesterday playing over-the-top Republican campaign ads.  I’m glad I posted about it before they aired the segment so not to be accused of stealing a bit from them. Junior Miller did make a point I never considered before when those ads state that Obama doesn’t believe in traditional marriage.  Miller said Obama believes in a traditional marriage between a man and a woman, it just so happens he also believes in gay marriage, so be believes in two kind of marriages.  You can listen to that segment here, and you can listen to their spoof on one here – I had no idea Jesus and the Statue of Liberty was married.
  • One more TICKET bit, the Hardline’s observations about the fall of country music and their predictable forumalic style had me laughing pretty hard.
  • An Indian family is starting to attend our church, they asked how much does it cost and where do they pay for Sunday school.  We asked if they weren’t confusing a preschool that use to be at our church for Sunday school, and they were just curious about Sunday school.
  • The NCAA is thinking about creating a rule preventing any football team with the ball from snapping it with more than 30 seconds on the play clock, the exception being the last two minutes of the game.  One of my biggest gripes about college football is that they are too slow, so I’m up for speeding up the game, though I’m not sure how much this would help.
  • Florida State will open their football season at Cowboys Stadium (I just don’t like calling it ATT Stadium) and they have a motto going into next season stating that it all starts and ends in Dallas since the National Championship game will be played at Cowboys Stadium.  I believe FSU will be playing Oklahoma, so that might be a pretty good game to attend.
  • Esquire has a new article on Mr Rogers, this part towards the end stood out, “What is grace? I’m not certain; all I know is that my heart felt like a spike, and then, in that room, it opened and felt like an umbrella. I had never prayed like that before, ever.”
  • Despite most folks thinking they were ugly, the U.S. Olympic team’s opening ceremony uniforms are selling like hotcakes.
  • On Verne Troyer’s Reddit Ask Me Anything he said the craziest role he was offered was a television series in which he hid inside Abe Lincoln’s hat and then killed people.  Man, that would have been funny, and perhaps that means John Wilkes Booth was actually aiming for Troyer’s character instead of Lincoln himself – In a sense, a second shooter.
  • We like to refer to the President of the U.S. as the leader of the free world, I wonder if other countries feel the same way or are Americans just being stuck up.

    (maybe it wasn't a good idea to include Draw With Flames in the same post as Woman Set Ablaze..) Funny coincidence.
