"All pitchers are liars or crybabies."

"A nickel ain't worth a dime anymore." Source: Baseball Digest (June 1987)

"Baseball is ninety percent mental. The other half is physical."

"Bill Dickey is learning me his experience."

"He hits from both sides of the plate. He's amphibious."

"How can a you hit and think at the same time?"

"I always thought that record would stand until it was broken."

"I can see how he (Sandy Koufax) won twenty-five games. What I don't understand is how he lost five."

"I don't know (if they were men or women fans running naked across the field). They had bags over their heads."

"If people don't want to come out to the ballpark, how are you going to stop them?"

"I'm a lucky guy and I'm happy to be with the Yankees. And I want to thank everyone for making this night necessary."

"I'm not going to buy my kids an encyclopedia. Let them walk to school like I did."

"In baseball, you don't know nothing."

"I never blame myself when I'm not hitting. I just blame the bat and if it keeps up, I change bats. After all, if I know it isn't my fault that I'm not hitting, how can I get mad at myself?"

"I never said most of the things I said."

"It ain't the heat, it's the humility."

"It gets late early out there."

"I think Little League is wonderful. It keeps the kids out of the house."

"It's like deja vu all over again."

"I wish everybody had the drive he (Joe DiMaggio) had. He never did anything wrong on the field. I'd never seen him dive for a ball, everything was a chest-high catch, and he never walked off the field."

"Little League baseball is a very good thing because it keeps the parents off the streets."

"Ninety percent of this game is half mental."

"Nobody goes there anymore because it's too crowded."

"So I'm ugly. I never saw anyone hit with his face."

"The game's isn't over until it's over."

"The towels were so thick there I could hardly close my suitcase."

"You can observe a lot just by watching."

"You should always go to other people's funerals, otherwise, they won't come to yours."

"You've got to be very careful if you don't know where you are going because you might not get there."

"We made too many wrong mistakes."

"When you come to a fork in the road, take it."

~When The Heat is On, New Face Paint Keeps Soldiers Safe ~




Face paint isn’t just for looks anymore. Recently, U.S. researchers have developed a camouflage face paint that can withstand the heat from a bomb blast and protect soldiers from severe burns during combat.

The face paint that soldiers have used makes the radiative heat from bomb blasts worse because it contains oil and wax, according to a Gizmodo article.

Researchers at the University of Southern Mississippi were given funding by the U.S. Department of Defense to create a heat-resistant product that would keep soldiers safe. Robert Lochhead, a professor of polymer science at the university, presented the material to the American Chemical Society about three weeks ago. “The detonation of a roadside bomb or any other powerful explosive produces two dangerous blasts,” Lochhead said in a news release from the American Chemical Society. “First comes a blast wave of high pressure that spreads out at supersonic speeds and can cause devastating internal injuries. A thermal blast follows almost instantaneously. It is a wave of heat that exceeds 1,112 degrees Fahrenheit. That’s as hot as a burning cigarette. The thermal blast lasts only two seconds, but it can literally cook the face, hands and other exposed skin.”

To shield skin from this heat, the team of researchers formulated a camouflage makeup that acts as a protective barrier to the face and hands for 15 seconds before a first-degree burn would appear, according to the release. This time would give soldiers a chance to move away from the heat.

The face paint consists of silicones, which absorb radiation and are not as flammable. It is also waterproof and insect proof, as DEET, surrounded by a hydrogel substance, was added to the formula. The release states that Lochhead and his team have plans to transfer the usefulness of this material to tents, clothes and other military items.

Freep mail me to be on or off the Daily Bread ping list


Least Powerful People

October 5, 2012

An unusual list called The 100 Least Powerful People in the World appeared in the online publication 24/7 Wall St. Among those selected were corporate executives, sports figures, politicians, and celebrities who shared one common characteristic—­they used to be powerful. Some were victims of circumstances, others made poor business decisions, while others lost their influence because of moral failure.

In 1 Corinthians 10, Paul draws a somber lesson from Old Testament history. The people Moses led from slavery in Egypt toward freedom in the Promised Land kept turning their backs on God who had delivered them (vv.1-5). Idolatry, immorality, and grumbling were among the things that brought them down (vv.6-10). Paul points to their collapse as an example to us, and sounds this warning: “Let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall” (v.12).

Every follower of Jesus can stand firm on God’s promise: “He will see to it that every temptation has a way out, so that it will never be impossible for you to bear it” (v.13 Phillips). All of us have power to influence others in their faith. How tragic to squander it by yielding to a temptation that God has empowered us to resist.

Lord, there are temptations to sin everywhere. Help me
not to give in. Make me sensitive to see the ways out
that You provide. I want my love for You to be real and
to encourage others in their faith journey.
The best way to escape temptation is to run to God.

Read: 1 Corinthians 10:1-13

Let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall. —1 Corinthians 10:12
Bible in a Year:
Habakkuk 1-3

For what it’s worth, I really appreciate these threads. I don’t comment but enjoy them thoroughly.

They take me back. Every veteran knows what I’m talking about.

The smell of slightly moldy canvas and diesel exhaust. The sound of a tent flapping in the wind and the reliable hum of a generator. The flat texture of CARC paint and dull pinch on your thumb from loading rounds into your magazines.

I miss it...

Yes, fall is coming on us quick.

The leaves are changing color very rapidly and already many types of trees are dropping leaves at a high rate.

I think some of it has to do with the drought.

Today it was in the 50’s and windy with some rain.

Oh what a day!
I was feeling SO good this morning after last night’s debates, so I went for a lovely motorcycle ride.

About 25 miles from home I gassed up. Then the bike wouldn’ turn over. I called AAA. The guy jump started the bike, but 11 miles later the battery died completely. Evidently the “JUMP” fried the battery! So I had to call AAA again for a tow. Towing a motorcycle is a toucy process...holing it on a 45 degree angle squeezing the brakes until the truck bed is raised up. Very scary.
The bike is back in the shoppe.

(sigh)

A PRAYER OF PROTECTION

The light of God surround you
The love of God enfold you
The power of God protect you
The presence of God watch over you
Wherever you are, God is,
And all is well.
Amen.

BLESS THIS HOUSE
 Bless this house O Lord we pray; Make it safe by night and day; 
Bless these walls so firm and stout, Keeping want and trouble out:
Bless the roof and chimneys tall, Let thy peace lie over all;
Bless this door, that it may prove ever open to joy and love.
Bless these windows shining bright, Letting in God's heav'nly light;
Bless the hearth a'blazing there, with smoke ascending like a prayer;
Bless the folk who dwell within, keep them pure and free from sin;
Bless us all that we may be Fit O Lord to dwell with thee;
Bless us all that one day we May dwell O Lord with thee.

In for a few...

Nice to see that my favorite Yogi Berra-ism is part of your list: “You can observe a lot just by watching.”

Thanks, AZ, for the Tribute to Our Troops.

Hope your day went well. FR is working better. I was in withdrawal last night.

Did you have an easy commute? No critters to hinder your way? *HUGS*

Gas was 3.99 on my way home last night and 4.09 on the way to work this morning. I need to put gas in the suburban, but, geez......

Hiya Speed racer & great to see you! *Hugs*

Mrs Z & Apple & crew doing well? *Hugs*

If you don't know where you're going, chances are you will end up somewhere else.

Sonboy & I had a riot a few days ago at the table reading his quotes. What a character.

Hi, Just back from a sojourn in the bush (outback to you Yanks LOL). Yeah, have a few flights. Best one was to Brissie for a weekend of fun. One emergency flight to the bush to pick up a jackaroo that got trampled but he’s doing okay.

Things are going well here in the Tweezers household. A few weeks ago Mrs. Tweeze decided to put a collar on Monkey. Every once in a while Monkey will slip off her collar just because she can; she almost never fights it when you put it back on.

Oh, and by the way I now hold an SCCA competition license! Ran my first races early last month at Thunderhill. I had a great time, and I'm seriously thinking about finding a part-time job during the evening so I can race again next season.

This season was supposed to be over as of last weekend, but Monday I had an email from Infineon Sonoma Raceway. They were looking for people to work a CSRG vintage race, so I signed up. The fact that I get paid for non-SCCA races at Sonoma made this an easy decision. :)

It was a good day indeed. Sonboy is on vacation so I took a couple of days off.

We had lunch the three of us & had a movie day. Good times.

Good gads it's a sorry state of affairs when you have to pay so much for petrol....especially considering where you live!
