The Major’s Tweets

I finally found a purpose for my 5-year-old-plus Samsung cell phone (commonly known as ‘Junkyard Dog’). I can actually tweet with it, and I have done just that on a few of my tweets. Most of the time I simply type in my 140-character-or-less tweet via the Twitter web site, but sometimes I’m not near a computer – so I use my antique cell phone instead.

Going back to last Tuesday morning here are my TOP 5 most amusing (and interesting) tweets of the entire week – in case you missed any of them:

5.  Remembering my Grandmom (1915-2004) – http://wp.me/p837L-1fC – Some of the greatest memories of my early childhood. [Aug 29th from web]

4.  At this precise time next Monday afternoon I’ll be sailing away with @carnivalcruise waving adios a Miami. I heard that one !  [Aug 31st from web]

3.  3 out of 4 Americans agree – Tomorrow is NOT Labor Day. That would be a week from tomorrow. [Aug 30th from web]

2.  Pretty soon I will own a 2ND home – a 2-story townhouse in Clay County FL. That’s right – I’m one step closer to being Donald Trump. [Aug 26th from web]

1.  I believe that Beef ‘O’ Brady’s in Homestead has the tastiest wings in town. Prove me wrong if you dare. [Aug 26th from web]

Trouble In The Tropics

Thanks to the continuing (and strengthening) El Niño phenomenon in the tropical Pacific Ocean conditions in the Atlantic Ocean, the Caribbean Sea, and the Gulf Of Mexico remain rather hostile and counterproductive towards the development of tropical systems. One such system continues to struggle to get its act together. It’s located a couple of days away from the southern Windward Islands, and it will produce inclement (rainy and squally) weather for the Islands as soon as Tuesday night. I am forecasting it to eventually become an unorganized Tropical Depression. At this time I don’t see it becoming a Tropical Storm, but if it were to do so her name would be ‘Erika’. Any potential effects on North or Central America are still more than a week away.
