Have a Good Year!

There's been a lot of complaining that 2016 was the worst year ever; especially with the number of celebrities who died in 2016 and the election of Donald Trump to the Presidency. Yes, I'll agree that I wish those things didn't happen. But, hell! Life will go on anyway; and we need to pick up and deal with it.

Here's a reminder by Louis Armstrong about the present. I hope this will serve as a cheer up. This is one of the most optimistic songs ever recorded.

The Last of the Red-Hot Llamas

While my wife and I  were shopping last week, we found this intriguing Christmas decoration for sale at Target. How about a Christmas llama? Maybe this will catch on . . . .



After all, in Catalonia, there is Tio de Nadal. He's a log that poops out presents. No crap:  


Maison Blanche, a store in New Orleans, uses Mr. Bingle each Christmas for a long time. He has a fey little voice.


Have you encountered any odd Christmas characters?

Nobel Prizes

So Bob Dylan won the Nobel Prize for Literature.  I'm astonished. Is that the best lit can claim nowadays?

But then, they gave Paul Krugman one for Economics. 

Will a jingle writer win one in the future? I nominate whoever wrote "I wish I was an Oscar Meyer Weiner."

It could morph to "I wish I was Anthony Weiner."
