Seek The Truth

“Persuade me or prove to me that I am mistaken in thought or deed, and I will gladly change–for it is truth I seek, and the truth never harmed anyone. Harm comes from persisting in error and clinging to ignorance.” Marcus Aurelius

Manners Matter

“I called on the king, but he made me wait in his hall, and conducted like a man incapacitated for hospitality. There was a man in my neighborhood that lived in a hollow tree. His manners were truly regal. I should have done better to call on him.” H.D. Thoreau

Bragging, Are we?

A man goes to confession and tells the priest, “I’m 75 and last night I made love to two 20 year old women. The three of us were together at the same time.” “When was your last confession?” asks the priest. “I’ve never been. I’m jewish.” The priests asks, “So why are you telling me this?” The man repiles, “I’m telling everybody!”

Joltin Joe – The Yankee Clipper – 1941

This year marks the 70th anniversary of the greatest accomplishment in the history of major league baseball. A record that may never be broken. Jolting Joe Dimaggio hit safely in 56 straight games. He hit the ball hard in game 57 but great defense broke his streak. He then hit safely in over 20 more straight games. He could run, throw, catch anything near him (including Marilyn Monroe), but lord could he hit. I think the longest streak since then was Pete Rose with 44 and he didn’t get a Marilyn Monroe and he was banned from the baseball and the Hall of Fame. The Yankee Clipper – 56 straight games – 1941.
