I got a new phone which is both fun and frustrating. Switched over to a Samsung Note 2 so im getting used to the way android works and a screen the size of the TV I grew up with.   And I'm redoing our kitchen which means scraping wallpaper, sanding cabinets and fixing the previous remodel screwups. I hate wallpaper.

 

I've culled out the only decent calendar page from the last week:

 

Friday

Can you name the four "animals" that patrolled the Cubs infield in 1984?

 

Today

Why did Bill Voiselle, who pitched for the Cubs in 1950, wear the number 96?

Penguin, Snake, Rhino, Bull. This was the first Cubs team that I remember. Ron Cey was my favorite back then. 


You better Dance, you better live, you better love with a sweet romance. While you still have the chance, I think you better Dance.

Alright, he wore 96 because he went to high school in a town called Ninety-Six, SC.
