Another TGIF

It's Friday again. Michael is back from his pet/house sitting gig (and happy to have water and electricity again) and I am nursing sore muscles from my 2nd ever 12-mile run (getting ready for a 1/2 marathon). We will be enjoying a nice cold Carib this evening.

If I had a car, I would have headed My Greek themed lunch today (Friday) at the Nathaniel John Hospitality Center of the Clarence Fitzroy Bryant College on Burdon Street, Basseterre, St. Kitts.   The menu is comprise of three 3) courses of traditional and classical Greecian dishes and will cost EC$40 or US$15.

This looks yummy (we need a Greek restaurant!).  I don't have a car, however, so I'll be nursing my sore muscles and getting ready for tomorrow's hash instead. I'll be ready!

Thought for the day (note the #s are from 1999, but you get the idea):

For a couple years I've been blaming it on lack of sleep and too much pressure from my job, but now I found out the real reason: I'm tired because I'm overworked. The population of this country is 237 million. 104 million are retired. That leaves 133 million to do the work. There are 85 million in school, which leaves 48 million to do the work. Of this there are 29 million employed by the federal government, leaving 19 million to do the work. 2.8 million are in the Armed Forces, which leaves 16.2 million to do the work. Take from the total the 14,800,000 people who work for State and City Governments and that leaves 1.4 million to do the work. At any given time there are 188,000 people in hospitals, leaving 1,212,000 to do the work. Now, there are 1,211,998 people in prisons. That leaves just two people to do the work. You and me. And you're sitting at your computer reading jokes.
