My morning fluff piece!
Markelle Fultz threw out the first pitch for the Phillies game the other day.
Afterwards, he shared a few words about the Sixers – yes. he is confident that they will make the playoffs. Not cocky. Confident. And yes, he trusts the process!
“Anywhere you go in Philly, you’re going to hear that,” he said. “Embiid started that and you have to trust the process. It’s something I say, too. You won’t be surprised. You can go anywhere. You can be in McDonald’s. You can be walking down the street and you’re going to hear that.”
Yes, you could be in McDonald’s …. errr … though other options might by higher on my list. One wonders,for example, do they trust the process at Tatlula’s Garden?
No, this is not news. Fluff pieces are not supposed todelivere news!
It is summer. Deep summer. We have time for amusements. And not all of our amusements make us laugh. Some of them are intended to bring a chill to the spine. I am talking about ghost stories.
If you are into this genre, you must know that the best ghost stories are told about haunted mansions and forts. And the British countyside is loaded with them! A new book is coming out with noted authors spinning new tales of horror!
Here is a snippet from the article.
Once a month, English Heritage, which manages the (Dover Castle tunnel) site, evacuates the tunnels for staff to perform sweeps, searching for any of the mysterious figures that tourists have reported seeing. In one report, a heavy door slammed shut and a stretcher trolley, part of a wartime exhibit, raced along the corridor as if pushed by a violent force. In another, a stranger in wartime fatigues approached a small boy asking for his help to find “Helen” (neither man nor his quarry were found).
One of my favorites is the story that Bill Murray tells to a camfire audience in the surprisingly entertaining film, Meatballs.. Here it is! Enjoy! And watch out for the claw!
This is not the most serious post in the world. And in the middle of July, why not have some fun?
It seelms that Philly star Joel Embiid is paling around with Manchester United star Paul Pogba. The two stepped out on the court and Pogba promptly made a 15 footer over the outstretched hands of Embiid.
Then came the dunk.
If you live in Brooklyn, look no further!
Williamsburg has it.
A new “tailored event space,” Dobbin St, has opened in the heart of Williamsburg—and before you start wondering what goes on in a tailored event space, let us save you the trouble. On Wednesdays, head directly upstairs to the 3,000-square-foot terrace beginning May 24 for a free movie series, “The Sunset Screenings.” You have to register here but again, it’s completely free, and the views of Manhattan’s skyline are spectacular.
A key attraction – the quality of the screenings.

Let’s face it. Life is not perfect. And the more we try to make it perfect, the more amusing life’s imperfections can be.
Take Cedric. He is a beautiful bulldog. And he was taken in by a wealthy animal lover to be a companion for her Pekingese. What could go wrong? Tune in to the world of James Herriot
You might have missed it, but yesterday was World Naked Gardening day.
Launched back in 2005, the unofficial event happens every first Saturday of May and encourages gardeners around the world to get out in the fields, bare ass exposed to the sun, to get dirty in the name of growing things in the earth.

The image speaks for itself. Yes is not relevant.
