Spooky - Asteroid TB145


Clarks Pond

All sports fans and especially those over 70 will like this video. The expressions of those on the sidelines is priceless. This basketball video is very entertaining. 

Personal note:  This video was filmed in Bloomfield, N.J. at a place called Clark's Pond.  I grew up in a house that backed up to Clark's Pond, although in those days there was no park or basketball courts, just an old pond that I spent hours each day in the summer fishing and in the winter ice skating and playing hockey.  After I graduated from college I bought a house on the same street that also backed up to the pond….

I will no longer be impressed...

Human ingenuity at its finest

I will no longer be impressed 
by a Toyota Corolla speeding down the Interstate, 
with a double mattress tied on the roof.

Went Fishing, Caught 4 Deer

Went Fishing, Caught 4 Deer   

A once in the history of mankind kind of thing. The Best Day Of Fishing Ever! Some fishing stories are a little hard to believe but this guy has pictures to prove his story... I've heard of salmon jumping into boats, but never anything quite like this.

Tom Satre told the Sitka Gazette that he was out with a charter group on his 62-foot fishing vessel when four juvenile black-tailed deer swam directly toward his boat.

"Once the deer reached the boat, the four began to circle the boat, looking directly at us. We could tell right away that the young bucks were distressed. I opened up my back gate and we helped the typically skittish and absolutely wild animals onto the boat. In all my years fishing, I've never seen anything quite like it! Once on board, they collapsed with exhaustion, shivering."

"This is a picture I took of the rescued bucks on the back of my boat, the Alaska Quest. We headed for Taku Harborm.

Once we reached the dock, the first buck that we had pulled from the water hopped onto the dock, looked back as if to say 'thank you' and disappeared into the forest.

After a bit of prodding and assistance, two more followed, but the smallest deer needed a little more help.

This is me carrying the little guy.

My daughter, Anna, and son, Tim, helped the last buck to its feet. We didn't know how long they had been in the icy waters or if there had been others who did not survive.
My daughter later told me that the experience was something that she would neverforget, and I suspect the deer felt the same way as well!"

Why the life expectancy for women is so much higher than for men
