Saint Patrick’s Day

March 17, 2009 
shamrock You are supposed to wear a little green today in honor of St. Patrick’s Day.  I have to admit that I don’t know a lot about this “holiday”, but we could learn a little from the following links:

The Air Traffic Flow
Have you every wondered how many flights were in the air during a day, and what the flow of air traffic looked like. Well, even if you haven’t, you’ll be amazed at this 72 second video that shows all the air traffic in a typical 24 hour time period. Each yellow dot represents an airplane.

After watching that, you may wonder how air travel is the safest way to travel. But isn’t that a a great visual method of showing lots of data in a meaningful graphical manner!?

Gone Fishing
GoneFishing2 I called Swann’s Marina yesterday and heard a good fishing report. So I decided that today might be a good day to head back to Douglas Lake for some fat crappie. The weather looks accommodating with mostly sunny skies, high around 70, with light winds. I’ll let you know tomorrow if we do any good.

A bad day of fishing is better
than a good day of work.

Tennessee Granddaddy Says:
Be the first to smile at people you see today.
You’ll get repaid with a nice smile in return, I bet.

Quote of the Day
Be not angry that you cannot make others
as you wish them to be, since you cannot
make yourself as you wish to be. 
~Thomas à Kempis

Joke of the Day

Doctor Bloomfield, who was known for extraordinary treatment of arthritis, had a waiting room full of people when a little old lady, almost bent over in half, shuffled in slowly, leaning on her cane.

When her turn came, she went into the doctor's office, and, amazingly, emerged within 5 minutes walking completely erect with her head held high.

A woman in the waiting room who had seen all this rushed up to the little old lady and said, "It's a miracle! You walked in bent in half and now you're walking erect. What did that doctor do?"

"Gave me a longer cane."
