Monday Scrapple


Easter, especially when it happens in April, is a great time of year.  There is such a "newness" in the air.

When the list of great songs is compiled, Jackson Browne's "Rock Me On the Water" has to be there.

I can't keep up with all the streaming services, and frankly, I don't want to.

It's nice to see kids back in schools.

Jim Nantz signed a new contract with CBS Sports.  Rock solid and never a bad performance.

Enough with the wind!

There is an upside to all those windy days.  All those dead trees are down and gone, cut up, hauled away, and destined for fireplaces all across northeastern and central Pennsylvania.

Martin Short just turned 71.  Yes, he's been around for a long time, but I was still surprised when I read that.  Very few people will appreciate this, but Short does a David Steinberg impression that always has me on the floor.

Don Farmer died last week.  82.  He covered congress for ABC and everything for CNN.  He was also a local anchor in Atlanta.  A talented man.

It's bike season!

"Quick Pitch"  is back for another season on MLB Network.  Great show.  Horrible graphics.  And they changed the "Premier Plays" segment.  It's not a change for the better.

Is there anything more tired than an April Fool's prank?

I wrote my first check of the new year on April 2, and that's a record for lateness.  It's tax time, so there will be more check writing in the days to come.
