Can you believe it is 2012 already? Me neither.  Unlike many people, I am not worried about the supposed Mayan Apocalypse that is supposed to hit this year.  This doesn’t bother me for several reasons.  One being:

Life is really busy right now. There are a couple of things I’d like to blog about, but I do not have sufficient time for those right now.  So here are some of my random ruminations about less important things:

  • I am really itching to watch Tombstone and eat a Tombstone Pizza

Doc Holliday I'm Your Huckleberry

Tombstone is a great movie.  I was reminded of it today when I came across the last name Huckleberry. It caused me to remember Val Kilmer‘s line as Doc Holliday: “I’m your huckleberry.” If you haven’t seen this film, you need to.

I always was entertained by Carlos Zambrano, but it was time for him to move on.  I don’t know a whole lot about Chris Volstad.  His 4.59 ERA makes me nervous.  I do, however, like that he plays by the code.  You might remember a little altercation he had with Nyjer Morgan, as summarized on wikipedia:

“In September 2010, Volstad was involved in a bench clearing brawl against the Washington Nationals. In the day’s previous game, the Nationals’ Nyjer Morganintentionally ran into Marlins’ catcher Brett Hayes on a play at home plate where Morgan was called out. Hayes separated his shoulder and it was determined later that night that he would miss the remainder of the season. In Morgan’s first at-bat, Volstad threw at Morgan, hitting him. Morgan proceeded to steal two bases when the Marlins had an almost double digit lead, breaking an unwritten rule of ethics in the game. Offended by Morgan once again, Volstad threw another pitch at Morgan in his next at-bat, with it going behind Morgan’s back. Morgan quickly charged the mound, despite the fact that Volstad stood nearly a foot taller than him. Morgan’s punch at Volstad missed, and Morgan was promptly clotheslined by Marlins’ first baseman Gaby Sanchez, resulting in the bench clearing brawl. Volstad was suspended for 6 games because of the incident.”

Here is a picture of the aftermath of the clothesline:

  • Here is one of many exciting items I found photo-worthy at a recent trip to a flea market:Flea Market Patriotic Rooster

Nothing quite says “I’m an ardent patriot” quite like a ceramic rooster in a star-spangled jumpsuit.

  • Excited about a quality, automatic coffee brewer:Bonavita Automatic Coffee Brewer

The Bonavita coffee maker is only the second automatic coffee brewer to be certified by the SCAA, and we have one at work! It is wonderful.

That’s about all I have today. Hope all is well with you.

Until later friends…
