Thursday, August 24, 2017 – Six Flags over Texas and Preparations for the Hurricane


Thursday, August 24, 2017 – Six Flags over Texas and Preparations for the Hurricane

This is what is wrong with education today. ICYMI The Six Flags over Texas amusement park recently replaced the six flags that flew over Texas with United States flags at the park’s entrance. As expected there were numerous thoughts on Facebook. This was my favorite:

Question: What were the 6 flags that flew over Texas?

Reply: France, Spanish, Mexico, Texas, Confederate, US and one more.

The current flag that may be flying over Texas this weekend is the one marking a hurricane. The red square one with the black square in the center. One flag means storm and two flags mean hurricane.

Harvey the Hurricane is approaching the coast of Texas bringing enormous amounts of rain. An eclipse and hurricane in the same week gives me pause for concern. But I am prepared and in an effort to help you prepare for Harvey I offer the following assistance. You will need the following:

    • 2 oz light rum
    • 2 oz dark rum
    • 2 oz passion fruit
    • 1 oz orange juice
    • Juice of half a lime
    • 1 table spoon simple syrup
    • 1 tablespoon grenadine

Squeeze lime into shaker over ice, pour in the remaining ingredients, shake, strain ice and pour in big glass. Then think “What would Jimmy Buffet do?” Now break out in song and sing…

Pour me something tall and strong; make it a hurricane before I go insane; It’s only half past twelve, but I don’t care It’s five o’clock somewhere.

Stay safe.

    Stay safe…not necessarily sober.
