2 Kids, 2 Shots, 2 baskets
Marsha and I started our new Summer bowling league last Tuesday (May 13). Like most Summer leagues you don't use your past average as a starting point, you have to establish a new average.
So what do I do? I go out and bowl a 753 the first night with games of 276, 221, 256. This put my average at a smooth 251 heading into my 2nd week last night.
Well, as expected, I lowered my average. Surprisingly...by only 4 pins though! I shot 737 with games of 257, 246 & 234. Heading into next week I'll come in with an average of 248. Ouch! Too bad this is a handicap league.
Thought I'd post this classic PBA moment for your amusement...

Well, here we go. There is still a lot of legal mumbo jumbo to go through, so it may sill take years, but eventually we will have money like the Euro, which comes in all shapes and sizes. Maybe this is the ideal time to get rid of the Penny and the paper $1 bill ?
NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- A federal appeals court Tuesday ruled that the U.S. Treasury Department is violating the law by failing to design and issue currency that is readily distinguishable to blind and visually impaired people.
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit upheld a 2006 district court ruling that could force the U.S. to redesign its money so blind people can distinguish between values.
Good ol' American Enterprise at it's finest. Buying and fixing up Geo Metro's, which get the same gas mileage as teh Hybrid Prius, and reselling them for 5 x their Blue Book value.
