What a day of surprises, and it's only 6:23 a.m.!
I started my day with a new treat that was exceptionally tasty - Blackberry ... uh, uh, ... not armadillo ... damn, what was that fruit? (They had a lot of them in the bible.) POMEGRANATE, that's it - Blackberry-Pomegranate yogurt by Yoplait. Try it.
Headline in USA Today (which I am not making up): "Outcome could rest with key players on the field." (World Cup) Hmmm, let me see, here - outcome (result) could (might, maybe) rest (be the result of) with (no comment) key players (stars?) on the field (DURING THE GAME, which is when the game is played). Yes, I suspect the headline-writers got it right. (With this level of professional output by writers, why is it that I cannot get a job?)
Newberry, South Carolina (near another USC, where another 'great' coach has a way with players) is a lovely little town with its own college - Newberry College, not surprisingly - a neat old opera house which featured Arlo Guthrie, as well as Percy Sledge, a few months ago, and some fine restaurants (so I am told). I can say from my experience that it has a fine coffee shop-deli-ice cream shop combination that can't be beat (Arlo's words about another restaurant).
