I first posted this in 2013:
This is the latest crop of grapes from our grape vines...
It reminds me of an old joke:
A duck walks into a bar and asks, "Got grapes?"
The bartender, confused, tells the ducks that no, his bar doesn't serve grapes. The duck thanks him and leaves.
The next day, the duck returns and asks, "Got grapes?"
Again, the bartender tells him that, no, the bar does not serve grapes, has never served grapes, and, furthermore, will never serve grapes. The duck, a little ruffled, thanks him and leaves.
The next day, the duck returns, but before he can say anything, the bartender begins to yell: "Listen, duck! This is a bar! We do not serve grapes! If you ever ask for grapes again, I will nail your stupid duck beak to the bar!"
The duck looks at the bartender and asks, "Got nails?"
Surprised, the bartender says, “No, we don’t have any nails.”
“Good," the duck says, "Got grapes?”
It's an oldie but a goody.
Our crop this year has yielded very few grapes. Luckily we only use the grape leaves and not the grapes.

As the long holiday weekend approaches, be warned about the dangers of driving and drinking, but did you know that deriving complex calculus problems while driving is even more dangerous than texting while driving?
Leave the calculus book at home this weekend and stay safe.

Seems like a lifetime ago when George W. Bush quit playing golf because our soldiers were fighting in the Middle East...

In this American Thinker article, Daniel John Sobieski asks whether we hold NFL quarterbacks to higher standards than presidential contenders...
Brady Deflates, Hillary Skates
Sobieski writes, "We should all be asking ourselves just why there is more concern and angst over Tom Brady’s use of slightly deflated footballs to get a better grip and improve his chances of winning a football game than regarding Hillary Clinton’s use of private email accounts on a private server and her deleting of 30,000 emails to improve her chances of winning the White House in 2016."
Let's not forget that Brady didn't bring us the horrendous events in Benghazi, or lies about undergoing sniper fire in Bosnia, or the acceptance of millions of dollars from donors (foreign and native) in exchange for favors.
Hillary hasn't answered a single question since April 21st... and the media is fine with that.

The Curiosity Mars rover's Mastcam high-resolution, color camera captured the setting sun on the Red Planet.
This Is What Sunset Looks Like On Mars
Of course, this brings up the Martian Sunset Debate... when you look at the Mars sunset, is that blue or do you see gold or black?
Sorry, I couldn't resist.

Pigs Can Fly: Chinese May Day Celebration Criticized For Pushing Pigs Off Bridge
I spent my May Day at my daughter's Commencement Convocation for her graduation from university.
Different strokes for different folks, I guess.
