Pesach (Passover) is Here!

Yes, the holiday celebrating the departure of the Israelites from Egypt began last night.  Hopefully you cleaned the hometz (leavened bread) out of the house before sundown; we had two slices left, and I ate them just in time.  Here is Pesach.com, the official website to tell you everything you ever wanted to know about Passover, but were afraid to ask.  They have pictures, videos, informative links, and even matzoh wallpaper.  Chag Sameach, and next year in Jerusalem!

Fun While It Lasted

That was the headline on today’s newspaper.  As you probably heard, the basketball playoffs are over for the University of Kentucky men’s team.  They made it to the “Elite Eight,” and then fell to West Virginia, 73-66, in a badly played game last night.  Also, the game was scheduled at the same time as a service at my church, so last night I learned the priorities of the other congregation members by who showed up.

Well, there is still the ladies’ team; they go against Nebraska tonight.  Let’s see if they reach the “Final Four.”

By the way, both today’s game and one of last week’s games (UK vs. Cornell) are scheduled to start at 10 PM.  Why is that, when neither of the teams involved is from the west coast?  Maybe the broadcasters can get more advertising revenue that way, but some of us DO have to get up early in the morning.  I don’t know about the real fans, but I don’t think one should have to take the next day off, just to watch a sporting event.

Headline: The Possum Didn’t See His Shadow

A drunk in Punxsutawney, PA was found trying to revive a possum that had been killed on the road.  Yes, the town known for the world’s most famous groundhog.  Well, they know their groundhogs in Punxsutawney, but evidently not their possums. This wouldn’t have happened near the Okefenokee Swamp, home of Pogo.

Six Videos of Lexi and Her Parents

Okay, I think I figured out what I was doing wrong when I tried uploading the first three videos of my granddaughter to YouTube; YouTube is not fully compatible with the Opera browser.  Here they are, with three more that were posted on Facebook yesterday.  I thank the father, Adam Sherwood, for all of them.

The Great Wall of Basketball

Yes, the March Madness hoopla continues here, with both the mens’ and womens’ basketball teams from the University of Kentucky in the “Sweet Sixteen” playoffs.  I believe that hasn’t happened since 1982.  Here’s a song composed for the mens’ team right here in Lexington, by Scott and Jeff “Sonny” Collins.

You will note that today’s opponent, Cornell, is mentioned a couple times.  Well, the song has been revised at least once already; another YouTube video from last week had East Tennessee State University as the opponent.  Those fans who have heard the song are hoping it will need more revisions before the playoffs are all over.  Go ‘Cats!
