Monday Musings - October 29, 2018

1. Amazingly, it is the last Monday of October and Halloween is this week. Wow, where did the month go?

2. The remodeling project continues, Chris and I made two trips to Lowe's yesterday for supplies. 

3. Who knew that selecting a paint color for a room could be so difficult? Why is selecting a color for the walls of a room so difficult is what I really want to know.

4. I played a round of golf yesterday at Blue Mash in Laytonsville! Yay! While it was good to be out on the course, it was cold and I didn't play very well. The temperature at Tee Time was about 50 degrees with a cold, biting wind.

5. I believe that the President should have taken a more deliberate and tough stance on the recent violence that we have experienced in the country. Saying that the synagogue should have had an armed guard is not the correct response. This is not fake news, I saw and heard the President say those words!

6. Family NFL Report

   Ravens (4-4) lost to Panthers 21-36
   Steelers (4-2-1) defeated Browns 33-18
   Redskins (5-2) defeated Giants 20-13
   Cowboys (3-4) had a bye

7. On the golf course yesterday, I happened upon these milkweed pods along the banks of a pond. Autumn is definitely deepening. No, I didn't lose a ball in the tangled underbrush, I was waiting for the group in front of us to clear the green.

8. I watched the World Series final game last evening, at least until 10 PM when I went to bed. Baseball is over until February. I hope the Orioles begin reconstructing soon.

9. What are you doing for Halloween? It is Wednesday!

10. Daylight Saving Time ends next Sunday morning. I hope to enjoy the extra hour in bed, but am already mourning the loss of sunlight at the end of the day.

11. Other than skin cancer, prostate cancer is the most common cancer in American men. The American Cancer Society’s estimates for prostate cancer in the United States for 2018 are:
              -- About 164,690 new cases of prostate cancer
              -- About 29,430 deaths from prostate cancer

12. Today in History: 1998. Nearly four decades after he became the first American to orbit the Earth, Senator John Hershel Glenn, Jr., is launched into space again as a payload specialist aboard the space shuttle Discovery. At 77 years of age, Glenn was the oldest human ever to travel in space. During the nine-day mission, he served as part of a NASA study on health problems associated with aging.

Ronald Reagan Quote for the Week

I'm convinced that today the majority of Americans want what those first Americans wanted: A better life for themselves and their children; a minimum of government authority.
