...sound decision...

Greetings. It is overcast and raining lightly in Chester County, PA this morning. The rain did stop long enough yesterday for us to eat outside and even grill without dinner getting soaked. I had the umbrella ready just in case and that was a sound decision. We were just getting ready to toast those tiny marshmallows with shish-ka-bob skewers when the skies opened. We decided to skip the toasting process and can save that for another night. Yesterday's blog was entitled 'Cheers' speaking of toasts and on this day in 1987, Diane Chambers' (Shelly Long) final episode for 'Cheers' aired. Her uptight, well spoken and humorous character added flair to the show and some missed her in later episodes. She wanted to go on to a major film career so left the top rated show and, well, back to sound decisions. On this day in 1946 Tokyo Telecommunications Engineering (later renamed Sony) was founded with around 20 employees. Sony is one of the leading manufacturers of electronics, video, communications, game consoles, and I.T. products for the consumer and professional markets. Its name is derived from 'sonus' the Latin word for sound. Does anyone out there remember the 'Walkman'? Bet Sony wishes that they had come up with the IPod. Speaking of IPOD central, my gym has been rearranging and adding equipment and the place is so much better almost overnight. They created a much nicer flow to the space but unfortunately kept the same purple, yellow and black color scheme, like something out of a bad Batman movie. Some decisions are sound, some not so much... I tend to like a black and white theme but the world does not revolve around me, unless something has changed and I have yet to be notified. Have a great day, try to make sound decisions and if you feel stressed get outside and walk man!
P.S. Personally I don't want to scale down any of my prayers. To each his/her own. Happy Prayer Day!
