Tuesday Night Grab Bag O’ Thoughts

I.  I for one am glad that Jay Leno is returning to the venerable “Tonight Show” on NBC-TV. I watched the long-running show for some 27 years or so from 1982 to 2009. I watched the last decade of Johnny Carson and all 17 years of Jay Leno. I was never a fan of Conan O’Brien’s humor or style, so I never even considered watching the show after Jay’s final night last May. I’ve seen every single episode of “The Jay Leno Show” in primetime since it debuted last September, and unlike most fans of Jay Leno I also enjoy watching David Letterman’s “Late Show” on CBS-TV. I’ve been watching Dave ever since he arrived on the late night scene more than 28 years ago. I learned how to program a Sony Betamax back in the early-1980s for the sole purpose of taping Johnny Carson, David Letterman, and Saturday Night Live. We used to watch those three shows as a family (Mom, Dad, Brother, Cat) back then. Good Times !

II.  I do declare my first cold of 2010 to be done and over with. I picked-up the cold germs exactly one week ago while I was up in the Jacksonville Florida area. It started with an instant itchy and scratchy throat that eventually became sore, and then all of the rest of the typical cold symptoms followed thereafter – peaking on Friday and Saturday. I took the maximum recommended dosage of Zicam (RapidMelts with Vitamin C) on both of those days, and that pretty much did the trick. I felt much better on Sunday, as I retired the Zicam for my next cold whenever that may be. Looking back on this week-long cold it was minor in comparison to the severe cold that I suffered through just two months earlier. If the severe cold was an Arctic blast invasion of germs then this recent minor cold was a mere cooldown of germs. They came. They went. So long wimpy cold !

III.  I’ve always been a big fan of Domino’s Pizza for as long as I can remember. In fact here in the Homestead / Florida City area there is no other place to get a more delicious pizza than Domino’s as far as I’m concerned. You may disagree with me, and that’s fine. We all have our personal tastes in food. Pizza is one of my favourite foods in the entire world, and I’m generally not too picky about it. I usually keep it simple with one popular topping – pepperoni. If I add other toppings then they must all be meat (sausage, ground beef, ham, bacon, etc.). With their recent ‘reinvention’ of their pizza I think that it tastes even better than ever. It really is worth bragging about !
