Sunday evening blog tentatively set to begin again October 6th

Greetings, readers. Yes, folks, it has been too long now not having two blog entries up per week. If the truth be told, I was going to wait until football season was over, but I think I shall try to sneak in an entry on late Sunday afternoons or evenings. My readers have come to expect two blog entries a week and as you know we aim to please.

For those of you who follow me on Facebook you will know I am trying to shake a cold right now. I just got finished telling Rebecca that I feel perfectly fine but sound very stuffy. If I hadn’t felt terrible two days ago, I might have actually called this an allergy attack. Remember it is fall here in central Pennsylvania. Happy second day of fall!

It is a gorgeous day here, nary a cloud in the sky. The new building next door is being worked on in earnest. They have five stories complete on my end of the building and four stories on the end closer to Beaver Ave. Completion date is set for next August, so quite soon the plumbing, lights, and the electrics will have to be put in. That means that the outside of the building must be completed first. It seems like only yesterday they were using the jack hammers to excavate for the foundation.

I saw a marked improvement in the Pittsburgh Steelers this weekend though they lost. Mason Rudolph was a wonderful young quarterback and I’m hoping he gets his first win this Monday night at home vs the Cincinnati Bengals. Other NFL surprises are the Buffalo Bills and the Washington Redskins. The Bills are 3-0??? And the hapless Redskins are 0-3. I think Redskins’ head coach Jay Gruden will be ousted if he loses to the New York Giants on Sunday.

In other sports news, the baseball playoffs are just around the corner. The Pittsburgh Pirates will not be in it, so I’ll take a quick glance to see if there are any other teams I am interested in rooting for before investing my time.

While watching NFL football, I have seen advertisements for new and returning TV series’. I’ve got to tell ya, I can’t say that I am truly dying to see any of them. If I really wish to see something there is always that beautiful invention called On Demand. With my new writing project now well under way (yay!) I think I shall watch TV catch-as-catch-can on Demand. I love Xfinity and its cable box.

Continued prayers go out to all who need it.

That’s all the news from here. Until next Wednesday, have a good week, take care, and happy reading.

On Demand has me hooked and the fall season of shows has begun

Greetings, readers. One day, I was watching On Demand from our cable system, Xfinity, something related to sports and during the commercial breaks they advertised three very good shows. As it turns out they are all related. They are NBC’s Chicago Med, Chicago Fire, and Chicago PD. I have been binge watching, trying to get caught up for this week’s season premiers. I am hooked on these shows.

I also like NBC’s new hit Manifest, as well as Fox’s show 9-1-1 dealing with the Los Angles fire company. Jennifer Love Hewitt joined the cast of 9-1-1 and I have always liked her as an actress.

Back to NBC for a moment, this coming Wednesday evening all three Chicago series will cross-over, as they do quite often. However, this is being advertised as the cross-over of all cross-overs. Apparently all three shows will mesh for an in-depth episode dealing with all the characters. I find the cross-over idea extremely intriguing. Why can’t I write gritty screen plays for characters with so much depth that they feel real? I don’t know, I think I lack the tools.

I did not get a chance to watch the new series New Amsterdam, but they all go directly to On Demand twelve hours after airing, so if I wish to, I’ll take a compulsory look. I am intrigued by its premise of a doctor who says to hell with the rules and regulations, let’s help people. The only reason I didn’t watch it, was because they put it on Tuesday which is not a good evening for TV watching for me.

On to a different topic, wouldn’t you know it, while dictating this blog entry, my recliner/bed decided to break. I’m not going to mention where I bought it, I got it used, but I think they fixed it up just enough to sell it. I’m going to have lots of work to do, for now I have two dead recliners. I was hoping the blue one would hold out until Christmas, but it didn’t. Now I have to talk to my accountant and see if we can pry out of the budget enough for something new. I will not buy used again. I am leaning towards a love seat or sofa, once I get both broken chairs out of here to make room.

Well, there’s our blog entry for today. I might be searching for furniture next Thursday, we’ll see, but Rebecca and I will be back next Wednesday. Tomorrow or the next day, we are supposed to have blue skies. Gee, what’s that? Enjoy the good weather if you have it, and continued good thoughts for those in the flooded areas. Please stay safe.

Until next week, take care, have a wonderful weekend, and happy reading.
