Sorry to drop this time bomb on your Friday but today was Jim Croce’s birthday. He would have been 70. Not a typo. Sorry. Unlike us Time in a Bottle never gets old.
Like I said yesterday my scale would dictate my breakfast and lunch on this (extended) last day of juicing. I don’t have a Dr’s office rated scale, I use a digital readout that measures to the tenth of a pound. Like all non-professional scales it has a margin of error that escapes me but margin of error aside the difference was 15 pounds. It’s not all an optical illusion either. This whole adventure goes down in my book as pretty damned amazing. The green stuff still tastes like crap but If you’re in my age bracket you’ve had to take a spoonful of Cod Liver oil when you were a kid and that taste still reigns supreme as the nastiest stuff to ever pass my lips. A stop by Baybrooks Fresh Seafood in Seabrook will provide our first chewable dinner Friday night. Aside from yesterday’s grapes that is.
Did you know Skippers is planning a big expansion? Yep. Stop by and ask them about it.

Is it time to replace your US Flag?
With January upon us, many people reflect on the previous year and look forward to the new year. When you think about last year’s patriotic holidays and how you hung your United States of America flag, did you think it may be time to replace your flag? Is it getting old, worn, tattered, frayed or faded beyond repair? If you answered “yes”, then it is time for you to retire the flag, and NO, this does not mean simply throwing the flag in the trash can and purchasing another. The flag is our symbol of our country, a symbol of our patriotism, a symbol of all those that have served and those that have fallen defending our country. This symbol should not simply be thrown away but instead the flag should be properly retired. Boy Scout Troop 2322 will be conducting a flag retirement service in February of 2014 and encourages all residents of Clear Lake Shores to bring their US flags that need to be retired to the Clear Lake Shores City Hall during the month of January. All flags brought to City Hall will be collected by Troop 2322 and will be included in their service.
