Monday Musings - February 1, 2016

1. Welcome Groundhog Day, tomorrow. Let's get some good news.

2. Orioles catchers and pitchers report in 18 days and the first signs of spring will emerge.

3. The original Star Trek NCC-1701 USS Enterprise is being restored for display in the Smithsonian. 

4. It was 56 degrees yesterday and the snow looks as if it is resisting the warmth. There is still a lot of it around. 

5. Today is Iowa caucuses day. The election season hits another milestone on the path to electing our next president.

6. Had there not been over a foot of snow on the golf course, yesterday would have been a good day to golf. Well, except at Torrey Pines located in San Diego, California, and the Farmers Insurance Open where play was suspended because of violent storms. 

7. I found a fun video of a Blue Angels performance

8. I wonder of the people of Iowa will be happy to be out of the political spotlight beginning tomorrow? They have been front and center for almost a year and I'm sure they will enjoy seeing advertisements on their TV's for something other than candidates.

9. Today Iowa, next Monday? Super Bowl aftermath! Broncos or Panthers? 

10. On this date in 1884, the Oxford English Dictionary (OED) debuted. It is the undisputed reference source for the current and historical meaning of words.
