Hello Happy-Sad Ball

"Blue Bird" Vintage Rubber Ball . . . . . . . . . . . . . Priceless

Blue Bird Ball

Funny the things we are capable of declaring precious.

Less than one week ago I posted the musing, "Is This My Rosebud?" wherein I pined over my long lost bipolar yellow ball from my childhood. Let me just say that you cannot imagine my reaction upon opening a Christmas gift from my sister and seeing this guy looking up at me from a tissue paper nest. Mind ==> Blown!

LMAO. My sister said that she read my post and thought, "I still have that ball in a box in the closet." But she did not tell me... she wanted to surprise me... nice one. Yep, pictured above is the genuine article. One of the first things I did - I admit - was to sniff in that familiar scent. Alas that petrochemical odor has long since vanished. So although I have been reunited with my long lost pal, it remains that the scent I had long associated with "smileyball" must persist only within the ether of my memories.

Thanks Sissy!

DAMN INTERESTING

Rider on the Storm

Article #330 • written by Alan Bellows

Rider On The Storm

    In the summer of 1959, a pair of F-8 Crusader combat jets were on a routine flight to Beaufort, North Carolina with no particular designs on making history. The late afternoon sunlight glinted from the silver and orange fuselages as the US Marine Corps pilots flew high above the Carolina coast at near the speed of sound. The lead jet was piloted by 39-year-old Lt Col William Rankin, a veteran of both World War 2 and the Korean War. In another Crusader followed his wingman, Lt Herbert Nolan. The pilots were cruising at 47,000 feet to stay above a large, surly-looking column of cumulonimbus cloud which was amassing about a half mile below them, threatening to moisten the officers upon their arrival at the air field.

    Mere minutes before they were scheduled to begin their descent towards Beaufort, William Rankin heard a decreasingly reassuring series of grinding sounds coming from his aircraft's engine. The airframe shuddered, and most of the indicator needles on his array of cockpit instruments flopped into their fluorescent orange “something is horribly wrong” regions. The engine had stopped cold. As the unpowered aircraft dipped earthward, Lt Col Rankin switched on his Crusader's emergency generator to electrify his radio. “Power failure,” Rankin transmitted matter-of-factly to Nolan. “May have to eject.”

Bruce Willis and the Temptations

Bruce Willis – Under The Boardwalk…

Something strangely hypnotising about Bruce Willis wearing Jerry Seinfeld’s trainers and swinging his hips. It’s like a dream you don’t want to wake up from.

Does Bruce Willis have the voice of an angel?

Did you make it all the way through this video?

Should John McClane start singing to the terrorists instead of shooting them?

Are all actors good singers and all singers good actors?

Did you find this unsettling?

Web-Safe Color Chart

The following table shows all of the "web-safe" colors, underlining the really-safe colors. (One shortcoming of the web-safe palette is its poor selection of light background colors.) The intensities at the low end of the range, especially the two darkest, are often hard to distinguish.

Color table

In the table below, each color code listed is a short-hand for the RGB value; for example, code 609 is equivalent to RGB code 102-0-153 or HEX code #660099.

Editorial - Sandy Hook

My Side

I have always held the position that this blog should strive to avoid controversy and present a non-political, non-denominational face to the world. However, in light of the horrifying atrocity that has befallen our kindred in Mother Earth I feel the need to lift the vail and editorialize in this instance.

I have never been a gung-ho Facebook guy but I do use RSSGraffiti to keep my "time-line" busy with BlogDogIts and I am not without my "friends." Over this past weekend I was alerted to the following friend status messages and (against my better judgement) entered the fray. I have omited the comments of the others involved feeling that my statements stand on their own but you may infer the remarks to which I address.

Please understand that I am not reproducing these comments here to incite debate. I am posting simply because I think these qualify as masodo's musings and I do have the freedom to express my opinion so express I shall...
