Briefly. (sorry, minimal spell/grammar checking)

A 72-hour hold in a psych unit it beginning to intrigue me as a potential vacation opportunity.

Another year, another day, another personal record for consecutive days alive! Here’s to me (and anyone reading this)!

Trivia #1: In 1983, the American Medical Association (AMA) urged a ban on boxing noting what?
Trivia #2: Who won the 1979 championships in the NHL, NBA, MLB and the NFL (Super Bowl played in 1979)?

On this day: January 14, 1610, Galileo Galilie discovers Callisto, the 4th satellite of Jupiter

This week’s sign of the apocalypse: The University of Southern California’s School of Social Work will no longer use the word “field” because it “may have connotations for descendants of slavery and immigrant workers that are not benign.”

Pass the sunscreen? Since its inception in the 1960s, pickleball has been a popular paddle sport enjoyed by people of all ages. While the game is typically played with players wearing clothes, there is a growing trend of people playing pickleball naked. That’s right, there is such a thing as nude pickleball. The idea of playing pickleball nude might sound a bit odd, but it’s actually not that unusual. There are a number of nudist resorts around the country that offer pickleball as one of the activities available to guests.

After a rare 3-0 defeat to the Seattle Kraken’s, the Bruins still boast the best win percentage in the NHL. And, the Celtics still have the best record in the NBA.

Father Time wins again, remains undefeated! Bessie Hendricks, the oldest person in the United States, died on Tuesday at the age of 115 at the Shady Oaks Care Center in Lake City, Iowa.

Trevor, what’s the Story?

Dude’s Threads, a rather unique clothing line, proudly advertises that 17% of the shirts they sell are purchased from the toilet. Now, I’m sure that cannot be measured but it’s still funny.

Article I’ll skip: “Yellowstone” star Kevin Costner reveals why he was not at Golden Globes

Article I will read: Chocolate is as healthy as fruit.

Useless information supposed to fire my imagination: See above, “On this day…”

Taking advantage of “free.” The Miami Heat set an NBA record on Tuesday night going 40-for-40 from the charity stripe.

The 13-4, NFC #3 seeded Minnesota Vikings actually let up more points this past season than they scored (427 to 424)!

Good luck to all in tonight’s lottery.

I don’t know, can Rafael Devers hit with no one, potentially, in front of him or behind him?

Good news: VantageScore, is removing medical debt being from consumer credit reports. I think that’s fair.

R.I.P. Charles White (64) – A two-time All-American and Los Angeles native, White won a national title in 1978 before claiming the Heisman the following season, when he captained the USC Trojans and led the nation in yards rushing. White led the Trojans in rushing in each of his final three seasons. He also won the Walter Camp, Maxwell and Pop Warner awards after his senior season.
R.I.P. Jeff Beck (78) – After suddenly contracting bacterial meningitis. Legendary guitarist with The Yardbirds and an extensive solo career with The Jeff Beck Group and others. Personally, in the top five guitarists all-time, if not ten ten.

Keeping personal, circa 1979, I purchased Charles Whites’ game jersey. In 1980/’81(?), I purchased Jeff Beck’s “Blow by Blow” album (cassette tape). Two of my legends died on the same day.

Trivia #1 answer: In 1983, the American Medical Association (AMA) urged a ban on boxing noting what? – Muhammed Ali’s deteriorating health condition
Trivia #2 answer: Who won the 1979 championships in the NHL, NBA, MLB and the NFL (Super Bowl played in 1979)? – NHL (Montreal Canadiens), NBA (Washington Bullets), MLB (Pittsburgh Pirates), NFL (Pittsburgh Steelers)

Be careful out there. (It’s a jungle!)

Nothing makes me more productive than the last minute.

Happy National Blame Someone Else Day!

“Sick at heart and lonely,
Deep in dark despair.
Thinking one thought only
Where is she tell me where.
And if she says to you
She don’t love me
Just give her me message
Tell her of my plea

And I know if she had me back again
well I would never make her sad.
I’ve gotta heart full of soul.”

p- The Yardbirds

Bonus tune!
