USPS Breaks All Barriers For Incompetence.

If you have been following our staffer’s saga on getting a USPS 2-3 day mail to its destination, you may have noticed that we jokingly said on Saturday that the mail moved and we attributed it to our original post.

Tracking shows the item was scheduled to go to a post office. Instead, the item went to a new “USPS facility” where it has sat for five days. That facility is literally 5 miles from the post office that is to deliver the letter / package to a destination that is 4 blocks away from that post office.

In short, the USPS can’t move a letter / package 5 miles in 5 days.

Today, he decided to call the USPS and see what was going on. They can’t tell you, but they would start a “case” on the issue.

(click for larger version in a new tab)

Palm Bay American Legion Post 117 is hosting a “poker run” tomorrow, June 19th to benefit “3 Angels Balls For All,” which is an organization that provides athletic equipment to kids which is a good cause.

As we come out of our COVID induced isolation, these are the type of events that bring people together and let them reconnect.

This Is The PIT’s.

Nicole Harper was traveling along an Arkansas highway when she was “lit up” by Arkansas State trooper Rodney Dunn, who wanted to stop her for allegedly going 84 mph in a 70 mph stretch of highway.

Harper, who was pregnant, slowed down and put on her hazard lights. She indicated that she was going to stop and was looking for a safe place to stop.

Seems reasonable to us.

After all, who wants to stop on a dimly lit road by some car that you cannot see whether it is an official police car?

It is much safer for both officers and citizens to find a well lit area.

Arkansas State trooper Rodney Dunn disagreed.

New York Sings The National Anthem.

We have long said that those who sing the national anthem before sporting events forget that the song was originally a song sung by a group of people. It was meant to be sung by everyone, and not just some individual looking to show off their range and stylistic interpretation of the song.

Before last night’s New York Islander / Boston Bruin game, singer Nicole Raviv started the song, and then the crowd took over.

Ms. Raviv was smart enough and in touch with the people enough to lead the crowd rather than trying to sing the anthem so no one could sing with her.

Kudos to Ms. Raviv, and kudos to the crowd.



1,500 Birds Invade House Through Chimney.

YIKES!

It was a scene straight out of Hitchcock‚Äôs 1963 horror flick ‚ÄúThe Birds‚ÄĚ for one Torrance, California, homeowner, who says hundreds of birds flew into her home through the chimney. ‚ÄúThere were birds coming out of everywhere. It was insane,‚ÄĚ the homeowner said. It took them three whole days to remove more than 1,500 birds by hand. The birds left quite a mess in their wake. Incredibly, the same thing just happened 100 miles north in Montecito, but a steel grate kept 1,000 birds out of the house.




Baseball, Pictures, And Suspensions.

Let us introduce you to the John Burroughs High School varsity baseball team in Burbank, CA.

After what is obviously a tough year for kids in school, the baseball team returned to practice and conditioning for the start of the baseball season.

As part of a two decade tradition, the seniors on the team were photographed in front of the school.

The photographic session was organized by the mothers of the players and then posted on social media.

It’s Back! Our Controversial Valentine‚Äôs Day Stance.

EDITOR’S NOTE: There are still people who don’t get what we are saying which is basically this: show the love of your life your love more than just on Valentine’s Day. It shouldn’t take one day a year for people to know that you love them.

Today is the day.

The worst holiday known to mankind is here: Valentine’s Day.

It is not that we think the idea of love and romance is a bad thing. We are all for it. (Nice to know, eh?)

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. 1 Corinthians 13:13 (NIV)

But here’s the thing. Here is why we hate Valentine’s Day so much.

Mary, Did You Know? – Carrie Underwood

A nice version of a thoughtful song.
