This edition of The Week That Was is brought to you by Kellogg’s Froot Loops cereal, or as they say in Toucan Talk, Oot-fray Oops-lay.
First, you’ll notice the QR code that had graced the page for a month or so is gone (and has been for a couple of weeks) and replaced by the badge for this year’s 10th Anniversary A to Z Challenge. The former is gone because they wanted money to keep using it, the latter just became available. I hope everyone plans on participating in the A to Z Challenge. Signups start on Friday, March 1. Watch this space and the Challenge blog for further updates.
It’s been a good week here. Rainy, but that’s to be expected. Our high on Thursday was 77° (25° C); it’s about 30° (17° C) cooler than that today. Most important, baseball season gets underway later this week in Florida and Arizona, a more certain way of telling us that spring is just around the corner, never mind what Punxsutawney Phil says. So let’s talk about last week…
The prompt “ocean/lake/sea/bay” led me to the Jesse Fuller classic “San Francisco Bay Blues.” Always fun to pull that one out.
Cathy is picking themes this month, and hers for this past Monday was “mail, soup, vacuum,” which I guess were the three “Day”s we celebrated last Monday. I managed to get my ten, anyway.
Keyboardist extraordinaire (and DePaul University graduate) Brian Culbertson was the featured artist.
Morgan at Once Upon A Time In… shared a very funny sign that she found on her blog, so I asked her if I could use it Wednesday. She graciously said “yes.”
I reviewed the Reiyin WT-01 Bluetooth transmitter, which I got as a way to provide Bluetooth capability to my old iPod. It’s a great solution to the no-Bluetooth problem.
My latest batttle (or, as I said in the post title, “batle”), between Koko Taylor and Janiva Magness, ended in a tie.
We visited Anniston, Alabama and radio station WDNG and examined their Top 10 from 1976.
As was the assignment, I started and ended my post with an adverb, the bête noire of English teachers and Stephen King. Knowing they bother Steve that much just makes me want to use them more.
Nothing out of the ordinary planned. Maybe something unplanned will show up.
