BRUCE A. BRENNAN BLOG FROM THE WORLD AND MY MIND
The news as I see it and the views as I want them.
September 26 is … National Good Neighbor Day and National Pancake Day
Is this day brought to us by All State or IHOP? Either way, take your neighbor some pancakes for dinner tonight.
During the preseason , the experts were telling us the Bears had a two year window to win before their defense is too old. It appears the years were dog years. The defense the Bears have is not very good. I am sure the team will win again but they will lose more than they win. The future looks very bleak for at least three years. By then, the quarterback will be too old; forget the fact he is not very good. The Bears do not have a running back that would start for any other team in the NFL but the one they start wants more money. Forte ran the ball two games ago 12 times for less than 30 yards. Yesterday he carried the ball 9 times for 2 yards. What should we pay him.
The football season in Chicago is over before the baseball season. In reality, however, the Cubs season was over in early June and the White Sox season was over in mid August.
This guy just didn’t know how good he had it. It appears, however, that being rich does not mean you are smart, intelligent, not gullible or happy. The brutal murder of young bride by her much older husband, who then killed himself, has sent shockwaves through Port St. Lucie, Fla. -- where many neighbors didn't even know the deceased were a couple.
The bloodshed began in the middle of the night last Saturday when a 78-year-old man apparently shot his wife, who was 21 years old. Before turning the pistol on himself, the husband called a neighbor to say he'd murdered his spouse. He asked her to pick up his dead wife's daughter because he was about to set the house on fire, according to TV station WPTV.
There were at least two 911 calls that night that have been released; one from the neighbor who ventured into the home around 1 a.m. to retrieve the 3-year-old girl, and the other from the husband, identified by some news outlets as Geunther Floerchinger, who told a dispatcher that he would allow someone to enter his home to pick up the toddler. Once the child was safe, he said he would end his own life.
When emergency responders arrived, the wife -- identified as Carhina Floerchinger -- was in a smokey bedroom that had been doused with gasoline. Police found her husband first behind the front door with burns on his body, according to TCPalm.com.
It has been a slow weekend.
Just a couple of thoughts I had and you should too or at least think about.
