Monday Musings - January 21, 2010

1. Happy Inauguration Day. We can argue about the results of the election, but we cannot disagree about the importance of this day happening every four years to reaffirm the viability of the Republic.

2. Just gotta write this: The Ravens are going to the Super Bowl! I was reading the news and the sports people pointed out that the favored teams were 8-2 in the playoffs this year--the only underdog that won were the Ravens, twice. They are already 4 1/2 point underdogs for the Super Bowl--I'm feeling kinda good about that one.

3.  Note to self--never be a hostage in Algeria. The death toll there has topped 80.

4. It is not a good day to be going to London--they are having a snow storm which has canceled more than 10 percent of the flights.  I don't hear about snow in London very often.

5. I found an interesting web site: 10 Things to Know for Today.

6. I didn't realize that President Obama is the 17th President to win reelection.

7. I am sitting here writing and I hear the sound of two grandsons waking in their beds. It is strangely different to have these sounds back in the house again.

8. Who knew that Memphis was the fifth most dangerous city in the US? See the article about the five most dangerous cities in the US.
