Sunshine Day

Here is a clip from a 1975 Doris Day special in which she and John Denver sing a medley of “sunshine songs”. This video, like the sunshine in Denver’s “Sunshine on My Shoulders”, almost always makes me smile.

Quote of the Day

Allan Arbus

“Ladies and gentlemen,

Take my advice.

Pull down your pants

And slide on the ice.”  – Major Sidney Freedman (M*A*S*H)

R.I.P. Allan Arbus (February 15, 1918 – April 19, 2013)

Quote of the (Earth) Day

Oh Beautiful for smoggy skies, insecticided grain,
For strip-mined mountain’s majesty above the asphalt plain.
America, America, man sheds his waste on thee,
And hides the pines with billboard signs, from sea to oily sea.”
~George Carlin

A snowball’s Chance in….Syracuse


Well, according to the Syracuse Post-Standard, the Golden Snowball Award will be returning to the Salt City after spending a year in Rochester:

There may be nervous excitement throughout Central New York about how Syracuse University will do in this weekend’s Final Four competition in Atlanta, but there is good news – so to speak – from Pat DeCoursey, the East Syracuse man who serves as oracle of the Golden Snowball:

After many weeks of running second or third, greater Syracuse has again climbed to the top spot nationally – our accustomed status – when it comes to total snowfall for large cities. As of Wednesday, according to Jessica Rennells of the Northeast Regional Climate Center at Cornell, Syracuse was up to 114.7 inches of snow for the season.

The season’s snowfall has certainly surpassed last year’s record low total of 50.6 inches of the white stuff but so far we have not reached our average of about 120 inches, although we are just under 5 inches away from doing just that.

I’m not a greedy person and I am very much in favor of letting Rochester or Buffalo or Albany or Binghamton have possesion of the Golden Snowball Award for as long as they would want it….we’ve had it here far too many years in the past. Check out the history here.

Even though the recent weather has not been Spring-like, that will soon change and in a few months we will be complaining about the heat. Such is life in Central NY.
