...Rainbow Connection

Rainbow, rainbow. On this day in 1993 the Rainbow Bridge, connecting Tokyo's Shibaura and the island of Odaiba, was completed. A few years earlier, Akiko completed the album from which this song was taken. We experienced an earthquake earlier this week and now are preparing for effects of a Hurricane. Batten down the hatches, always be aware of your surroundings and wish for that rainbow. And for that pot of gold, no matter the denomination.

...I Feel The Earth Move

...well, actually I didn't. I was high on a ladder and what I mean by 'high' was elevationally. Two young children were barking orders at the 'Giant', (me) while I installed drapery. With all of the carrying on that I did along with hammering, I missed the entire episode. Give me a 5.5 out of 10 for observational skills, please. I spent the day in K o P and it was nice to be there. I had lunch with the beautiful SK and found both a good luck penny and a quarter on our walk. I, of course bent down to pick them up. Never walk past abundance. On this day in 1967, led by Abbie Hoffman, the Youth International Party temporarily disrupted trading at the NYSE by throwing dollar bills from the viewing gallery, causing trading to cease as brokers scramble to grab them. Have a great day and if you are feeling a little bit shaky, take a deep breath. Everything will be fine. Please keep EA and MW in mind as they are both going through some rough terrain.
