Observations from the Coffee Shop 2.21 Randomness

Borders books filed for bankruptcy last week and is supposedly closing over two hundred stores. The thought of that makes me sad because years ago my mom would take me to the local Borders on a Saturday afternoon for kids reading day, or poetry reading, or whatever was going on. I think my love of books started back than, it was a good thing. My sister told me that local Borders is one of the many scheduled to close.

I haven't lived with my dad for a couple years and I have just now noticed a major side effect of that. NASCAR Sprint Cup racing no longer seems to appeal to me the way it once did. Than again I do know what it is and I do know that a twenty year old rookie won the Daytona 500 yesterday. Maybe you should disregard this paragraph.

Last year my brother got me started watching "Whale Wars" on the Animal Planet network. It's a reality show following The Sea Shepherd Conservation Society's struggle to end Japanese whaling. It tried to do this by putting its ships in the way of the whaling ships which became something I was rather fond of watching. Now filming of its fourth season has been suspending due to Japan's tentatively canceling the remainder of this years whaling season and going home. They blame the constant harassment by Sea Shepherd ships and its wee little helicopter. But what happens to the show with no whalers to harass?

And to prove life is still good ....
