Monday Musings - July 14, 2014

1. It is Bastille Day, my second favorite foreign holiday. Vive la France! Cinco de Mayo is my favorite foreign holiday. I realized that I do not have a third favorite foreign holiday, yet!

2. Major League Baseball's All Star Break begins today. Amazingly, the Orioles are in First Place with a four game lead. Let's see of they can avoid their usual July-August post-All Star Game slump and keep it up.

3. Congratulations to Germany for winning the World Cup. Although the USA Team did win, they made a good showing and there is a lot of promise for the future. 

4. Climate change is affecting Australian winemakers. The Barossa Valley, where world-class Shiraz comes from may be mostly unsuitable for winemaking by 2050 according to an article in the New York Times

5. Lounging on a floatie in the pool is the bet way to cool off after another around-the-house-Sunday-afternoon project.

6. What would Captain Kirk do? Saw this and it made me laugh, especially since I idolized the character of Captain Kirk when I was younger. 

7. Is it me, or have the network TV offerings become dull and boring?

8. Why was I up at 4AM on a day I didn't have to go to work?
