I've been to Japan and I've been on the trains, but that was a lot of years ago. I am glad that I missed this little bit of insideous oriental torture.

Carl Orff's Carmina Burana, certainly one of my favorites.

From Brewster Rockit comes an affliction for the aging, forgetfulness. That forgetfulness that occurs when you are having a conversation and the name of a person, place, or thing will not come front and center when you need it. It is maddening to say the least and not a real good asset for any conversation. I can't tell you how many times while conversing, the name of a person, place, or thing will not come forth when bidden. Older people will know exactly what I am talking about. It's that greatest of all conversation busters, "Oh I'll remember it in just a minute."

Knowing that millions of other people, including Brewster Rockit, (short attention span is not exactly the same, but you get the idea) have the affliction does not make me feel any better.

I snatched this pic from the blog Diatribe. Today is the day I do believe that the actual auction for C.C. Sabathia will begin. I think also today will be the day that the tribe will begin to clear their roster of a whole lot of dead weight. Those who follow the tribe know who I'm talking about. I also think that while the worthless are being discarded the roster will be populated by a whole lot of players from Buffalo.

It's sad, but hey if you are a Cleveland Indian fan of more than ten years, you know it takes a regular dose of the philosophy that 'whatever will be will be, tomorrow will be better than today, or any other philosophical crap that will be the trick.
