ESPN College Game Day Arrives In Philadelphia.

I was an undergrad at Temple mid to late 70’s. We had a great Football team back then. Almost went to the Liberty Bowl if we would have beat Cincinnati one year. There was the Garden State Bowl in 1979. Two trips to Japan to play Grambling and Boston College. There wasn’t any cable or Internet back then. Times have definitely changed.

I would have been there on Market Street today. Whoot, Whoot!

Looks like Chip Kelly’s gameday play card made it, S8. These signs are a marketing genius. Hire Temple Grads.

Go Temple Owls Beat Notre Dame. I am a proud alumni.

National Cat Day, October 29.

I love cats, they are my favorite animals.  In 1980, I had my first cat given to me Cougar. Tiger was a kitten that appeared at my front door in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada in 1982. We were leaving to live down in the States again so off he went to the Vet to receive his shots to enable us to cross the border into the USA.  Moondance came in 1984. They were such a joy in my life. I will be a caregiver again to those little furry creatures that give you unconditional love soon, very soon.

Prayer, Its Power: John 14:13-14, Philippians 4:6, Romans 8:26-27.

John 14:13-14

13 Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 If you ask me anything in my name, I will do it.

Philippians 4:6

do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.

Romans 8:26-27

26 Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans too deep for words. 27 And he who searches hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.

OMG, what is this doing flying over the Northeast? 20,000 people are without power.

Via Patch.com

The runaway blimp has reportedly landed after flying from its home base at Aberdeen Proving Ground to Pennsylvania Wednesday.

The blimp had reportedly landed outside Bloomsburg, Pa., WBAL reported just before 3 p.m.

The North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) launched a pair of blimps over the past year to detect missiles, drones and rockets.

From their perch at 10,000 feet above sea level, they are intended to keep lookout for threats from New York to North Carolina to Ohio.

The aerostat was anchored to a cement pad by a tether, which broke at 11:54 a.m. on Wednesday, APG officials said.

Oh it only cost $2.7 billion of taxpayer dollars.

Processed Meat Can Causes Cancer, Red Meat? WHO.

I always knew this, luncheon meats and always suspected red meat.

Via Philly.com

Eating processed meat can lead to bowel cancer in humans while red meat is a likely cause of the disease, World Health Organization (WHO) experts said on Monday in findings that could sharpen debate over the merits of a meat-based diet.

“For an individual, the risk of developing colorectal (bowel) cancer because of their consumption of processed meat remains small, but this risk increases with the amount of meat consumed,” Dr Kurt Straif of the IARC said in a statement.

Processed meats do cause cancer – WHO
