A neighbor a couple doors from me just had a house fire with two fire departments responding. The cause is new to me so I want to share in an attempt to head off any more such mishaps. The lady was burning a candle on her fireplace mantel and the candle was too close to the wall mounted TV. The TV overheated and exploded setting the wall on fire. Not only does the wall require rebuilding but the whole house was permeated with smoke and needs cleaning. Be careful with those candles; perhaps an investment in flickering battery powered candles is a good alternative.

Big Dude

This guy or at least some of his “co-workers” were in this year’s Rose Bowl Parade and they were awe inspiring. I rode horses a lot as a kid but I am not a big horse fan however the Clydesdales are special. My grandfather most of his life farmed with horses and he loved them. He said until his dying day he would “much rather walk behind a pair of horses to farm than ride a hard riding tractor” To be fair today I do believe the modern tractors have some sort of system to smooth out the bumps but perhaps not.

My daughter’s company provided a free night at Budweiser for their employees and relatives. My granddaughter joined us for the fun.
