Links here are good only for the week of September 25. After that... is anybody's guess.

The Upper and the Real Deal
The BBHQ Monday Morning Upper

Our Upper this week was inspired by our "When the Music was Fun" essay.

This is the essence of fun. And yes, it is another sing-a-long. But it does not take much urging. How can you not?

BBHQ

Well, we are back; the hurricane preparedness convention in Manitoba was a complete success. They are fully prepared up there. The Manitobans are convinced that they can withstand any hurricane that Mother Nature might throw at them.

And who were we to disagree?

But we have to announce another absence. This time it is an internal thing. While we were gone, the compound here underwent a major renovation. But as one might expect, it was not completed on time. We were told that we might not have Internet access next week.

So, we'll be on autopilot next week, with no newsletter. We will be back... in full force, on October 9.

This Week with the Chicowitz


After the Storm

I worked the ice line. Bags of ice were stacked on a pallet under a fly. People could drive up and collect up to four bags. Every 20 minutes or so, we had to unload more bags from the trailer and stack them on the pallet. After all, they don’t unload themselves.

To do this, we formed an impromptu ice line. Yep; just ordinary folks standing shoulder to shoulder passing bags down the line. It’s not rocket science. But they didn’t need rocket science; they needed an ice line.

The BBHQ Trivia Teaser & Subscriber Evaluation
Here are three questions from the BBHQ cloud:


1. First, our current events question:
Well, we hit another milestone recently. The total U.S. debt - the amount of money owed by the U.S. government (that's us) - topped what amount?

  2 trillion dollars; $7,000 per person
  12 trillion dollars; $39,000 per person
  21 trillion dollars; $67,000 per person
  44 trillion dollars; $141,000 per person
  Donald Trump's net worth


2. This comes from our "Places & Locales" collection; fill in the missing destination:

    Early in the morning she hitched a ride down to
    Holdin' onto a hundred dollar bill.


3. We're going to focus on song titles using girls' names here in the trivia section... until... until we run out of girls. We have binders full of them.

This was a top-10 hit in 1969 by a group billed as the Cuff Links. But the group was an amorphous bunch of artists that never jelled after this hit song.

    ______, when I'm with you
    Somethin' you do
    bounces me off the ceiling.
    ______, day after day
    When you're this way,
    I get a lovin' feelin.'
    Come with me,
    Don't say "No,"
    Hold me close,
    ______ never let go.


Who's the girl?

There are no prizes here... it's just for fun.


The BBHQ Joke of the Week
Just time for a quickie this week:

The Internet is a-buzz with rumors that Apple is working on a self-driving automobile to be available by 2021.

The contrarians say that it cannot possibly be ready by then... as the engineers are having trouble installing windows.

Have a great week... or 2. We'll share the fun again on Monday, October 9.
