Tomorrow is world rabies day and Cabrillo Day (commemorating the discovery of California by the Europeans (1542). Birth anniversaries include international actor Marcello Mastroianni (1924), European boxer Max Schmeling (1905),TV variety show pioneer Ed Sullivan (1901) and in Taiwan it is celebrated Confucius’s birthday and teachers day (he was born around 551 BC).
The National Aviary has added a garden gift shop right at the main entrance. This is a separate shop from the gift shop by the entrance from the parking lot. Both are run by the Aviary, not some outside vendor renting space. In keeping with their mission, the items are nature inspired gifts. The shop is open from 10 am until 5 pm and you don’t have to buy an admission tickets to visit it, just like the the other shop.
Really, the attorney for the latest Plum teacher being investigated for having sex with a minor made a statement that the 15 year old girl iniated the sexual encounter. A 29 year old adult was influenced into a relationship with by a 15 year old child? I think that attorney should be looked at.
Maybe there’s hope for us, Peanut Corporation of America’s owner Stewart Parnell just received a 28 year jail sentence for knowingly shipping salmonella tainted peanut butter. We need jail time to strike home to corporate America to reign in the corporate greed. Corporate executives make so much money, that even if their company doesn’t actually pay the fines, it means nothing to them. 9 people died and over 700 got sick. I bet if a few of our banking executives got jail time, it would slow down on their corporate malfeasance.
Yes, I’m a boring person (I seldom go out), but these independent movie houses are now starting to serve craft beers at their concession stands. It adds another layer to their offerings like I think it was the Hollywood Theater in Dormont that had a spaghetti dinner included in the price of admission for their recent spaghetti western series. Row House Cinema in Lawrenceville has several beers on tap and it’s next door to another venture of theirs Atlas Bottle Works next door, you can walk over to Atlas select from 500 bottles available and walk right back into the theater with it. The Manor Theater in Squirrel Hill also offers adult beverages.
The Montgomery Homestead Inn on the Appalachian Trail had a surprise the morning of May 16. Several FBI agents showed up in the door with a picture of James Hammes, a regular at her Inn and known only as Bismarck. Hammes had been up and down the Trail and is accused of embezzling $9M from his Ohio employer. I think he always paid with cash.
This week my little girl is getting spayed, I’ve been a mess over this. Unfortunately for sanity at The Parador Inn, it has to be done. Here’s the latest picture of her with her, as yet, big brother. I almost had to cut her choker off her she’s growing so fast. She has mainly her adult teeth now.
The moon is going to be closest to earth tonight than it will be for the next 33 years this super moon eclipse is not going to be easily seen, because our weather calls for mostly cloudy. In the chance of a break in the clouds, you should poke your head out every now and then to see this if possible.
Short post for today,
