He is RIGHT. He is, of course, always right. And he is the master of branding. Trump Steaks, Trump Wine, Trump University, Trump Condoms …
DON is perfect. 3-letters., just like MAX.
‘Don’, moreover, is an honorific. So, this works well.

They have YELLOW Caps.
I kid you not.
I had asked a somewhat of a recluse Jewish friend what is plans were for Passover. He said he planned to go out and get some Matza bread and SWEET Coca Cola. He doesn’t kid much so I knew that there had to be some basis to this comment. So, I Googled ‘Passover Coca Cola‘. BINGO.
He called it ‘SWEET’ because it, unlike regular Coca Cola, is made with REAL SUGAR. That is what makes it Kosher for Passover. No corn syrup! Normal Coke is sweetened with corn syrup. Corn does not meet the Passover prohibition on grain and leavened items.
Hence, the use of real sugar.
I don’t think I have ever seen YELLOW CAP Coca Cola bottles in New Hampshire. But, I am going to go looking.
He came 1st in one of the Boston Qualifier races to secure his place.
This was special. I tried to catch him on TV — to no avail. But, I followed his impressive progress online. The 1:14 time for the ‘half’ got me real excited. That was brilliant. I was e-mailing his time to folks that understand this stuff.
Yes, his father ‘John Tuttle’, ran the Boston Marathon multiple times. But, having Drew run it seemed different. I have known him since he was a kid.
Saw him running last week and wished him luck. Was ‘talking’ to his Mum, via Facebook Messenger, multiple times this morning ahead of the race. She was so glad the rain had stopped/
So, a BIG day for Drew. I am hoping to get some pictures of him running.
New York’s Cardinal Dolan, Re. Notre Dame Fire, Again Confirms Why He Is NOT Considered An Intellectual.
Dolan, Dolan, Dolan.
You have to feel sorry for him. God was NOT kind to him in the intellectual stakes. But, he has done OK. Lives like a Railway Barron and looks like one too.
Too bloody late for ‘Our Lady’ or for ‘God’ to intercede.
Plus, does he REALLY THINK they need to be asked. Don’t they know? Doesn’t God spend most of his day, in ‘Executive Time’, watching Fox News on a 600′ TV?
They could have STOPPED this from happening.
Oh, Dolan. Oh, Dolan!
You are a treat.
This is a tragedy. Intercession should have happened BEFORE the tragedy.
See Category ‘Religion’.
First and foremost, I sure hope that it is nothing more than a tragic accident.
I hate to even think that ….
But, where the heck was God?
This is why I am an unbeliever and always have been. Also, why I refuse to pray — to anybody.
If, God or the Virgin Mary will not intercede to save Notre Dame it is unlikely that they will jump to my aid when I bust a knee.
One other thing.
The Paris fire department had NO CONTINGENCY plans for this?
Jesus. That seems irresponsible and incompetent — when for the lovely French.
As some of you know I love cathedrals — albeit, I am shamelessly biased towards the beautiful British Cathedrals.
That said, I am quite partial to Notre Dame. I have visited it MANY times. Remember I lived in Paris for 1-year, and my parents lived there for over 15-years.
This is a shame.
NO we can’t rebuild it to its original glory. We no longer have the skills.
Redoing in glass, which I know the French will look at, is NOT going to cut it.
A sad day for us. Kind of like a 9/11 — though without, luckily, the loss of life.

If the Vivoactive 3 roll-out was any indication things could start to rapidly change from this point onwards. So, I guess we are looking at the first week in May.
I am still hoping to get my hands on the ‘Expedition’ model.

Having it happen in consecutive years is rare. So, rejoice and take note.
It will happen again in 3-years, i.e., 2022.
But note, we are talking about Friday — Good Friday — rather than Easter, which is on the Sunday.
Given that the two holidays are related it should not come as a great surprise that they do fall, close together.
Hence the connection. In early Christianity Easter was celebrated at the same time as the Passover. So that they fall together, per a now very convoluted and artificial formula used by the Western Church, is to be expected.
Easter Sunday, per the ‘latest’ formula, can fall between March 22 (the day after the nominal ‘March 21’ Spring Equinox) and April 25.
Last year Easter was quite early. This year it is quite late.
However, Easter Sunday can NEVER COINCIDE with the Passover! The formula used to calculate Easter has this built-in.
So, it is always GOOD FRIDAY that can coincide with Passover — and never Easter per se.
Just thought you might find this interesting.
