Monday Musings - August 15, 2011

1. Traveling the highways anymore is an adventure in probability. Probably, there will be an extensive traffic jam. Yesterday a trip that too 7 hours and 15 minutes to complete on Thursday took over 9 hours. My travel advice--avoid the New Jersey Turnpike at all costs!!

2. Rain, rain, and more rain makes driving really hard.

3. Apparently someone shot the starter's pistol for the 2012 Presidential race.  And they are off and running looking for a challenger. I'm not sure they have a potential winner anywhere in the field yet.

4. The tragic collapse of the stage in Indiana begs the question about whether there are sufficient inspections of the elaborate sets and equipment being used by today's bands.

5. Weddings are a grand example of two people beginning a new life together. They also provide for a great weekend of fun and celebration.

6. I had the opportunity to consider other drivers on the highway this weekend--some drivers are too impatient and I wonder how they arrive alive at their destination, and even then, I wonder about ulcers.

7. It is always good to see my dog again after a weekend away.

8. And of course after a four day weekend, it is off to the grind again!
