A different view

The change of seasons is upon us.  The bus school schedules taking some getting used to.  A different view.

We tried the new pizza place in the Hauppauge industrial park.  Rigatoni's.  At $3.95 for a specialty slice, it will be hard to switch up.  I like Mario's and Emilio's better.  A different view.

Planning a trip into NYC to commemorate and celebrate the closure and shutdown of Reuters core editorial system, S77.  LYNX is the new game in town.  A different view.

This day in history "On this day in 1814, Francis Scott Key pens a poem which is later set to music and in 1931 becomes America's national anthem, "The Star-Spangled Banner." The poem, originally titled "The Defence of Fort McHenry," was written after Key witnessed the Maryland fort being bombarded by the British during the War of 1812. Key was inspired by the sight of a lone U.S. flag still flying over Fort McHenry at daybreak, as reflected in the now-famous words of the "Star-Spangled Banner": "And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air, Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there."

As others wage war or attack our US embassy on foreign soil, I can say that our flag is still there.   The more   I think about it, the angrier I get.  After-all, the USA helps everyone, and we could use the money we spend in foreign, not so friendly countries that we can use here at home.  A different view.

Kyle is run down and not feeling well.  He need to pig out.  Instead of the new menu at school which is deficient, or the fact that he has NO LUNCH period is starting to piss me off.  Sue went out to shop for all sorts of food, power bars, snacks, and foods that he can take to school to sneak a bite to eat.  He lost 5 pounds since his physical last month.  A different view.

I shop for some porterhouse steaks (on sale of course).  I fix a nice energizing dinner for Kyle an family.  Caesar salad, and mashed potatoes.....A far cry from the chicken or fish...So good !!  A different view.

With the new schedules, I have been running less in the morning.  I miss the sunrise while running.  This morning I saw a bright and beautiful sunrise in the side view mirror on the way to work.  A different view.
