Tossed Salad Friday

~~ The yoga teacher was a brand-spanking new graduate embarking on her first solo class. I think she did fine, though she elicited quite a few chuckles from the class when she advised us to turn onto our right sides and “curl up into the fetus position.”

~~ Anybody can apparently get a driver’s license nowadays.


~~ I lectured my husband about my extreme dislike for viewing the 11:00 pm news before retiring. “I know the world’s a terrible place,” I said, but “stabbings, rapes, and hit-and-runs before bed are quite disturbing.” Thereafter, I left him and went to take out my contacts. I turned on the NPR broadcast of BBC America, hoping to hear the usual insightful reporting on far-flung places. And did I ever! There was the story about Chinese ranchers grinding up an antibiotic to feed to cattle — the same last line of defense medication employed in US emergency rooms to combat antibiotic-resistant bacteria. And the one about Tanzanian candidates for elections paying big bucks to witch doctors to procure the limbs of albino people so as to sway the mojo towards the office-seekers.

~~ The moral of the story above? I should listen to sports 24/7.

~~ Spotted on the first floor of an office building, right next to the staircase:


~~ Someone was talking about a baby named James and the performer James Taylor. A friend remarked that her favorite song by Taylor was Sweet Baby James. I laughed aloud and said that my favorite James Taylor song clearly showed how different we are!


~~ Thanks for reading my blog (last week I was gently chided for choosing a topic by someone who had just looked at the photos). I don’t mind the feedback I receive from readers, like the woman who emailed me a few weeks back and said, “You’re still picking on Barbara Bush? She’s an old lady who hasn’t harmed this country since spawning awful children.” Or the reader who wrote, “Why don’t you change the name of your blog to Tales from the Liberal?” Stuff like that makes me smile, laugh, and continue writing!

~~ Speaking of thanks, have a wonderful Thanksgiving. It’s the best holiday for everyone except turkeys.
And if you can find it in your heart to adopt a turkey rather than have a gentle creature slaughtered, this organization will put your $30.00 donation to great use: http://www.farmsanctuary.org/giving/adopt-a-turkey/

Have a great weekend!
J!-E!-T!-S! JETS! JETS! JETS!
LET’S GO RANGERS!
GO, NY KNICKS, GO!
