Ramblings Of A Tired Mind

Ramblings Of A Tired Mind
- I was thinking about old age and decided that old age is when you still have something on the ball, but you are just too tired to bounce it.

- I thought about making a fitness movie for folks my age and calling it 'Pumping Rust.'

- When people see a cat's litter box they always say, “Oh, have you got a cat?” Just once I want to say, “No, it's for company!”




A roundup of bits from the web.

* Bizarre clam video weirds out the internet.

* Why you should never put your home address on your luggage label.

When The Hindenburg Was The Height Of Luxe In-Flight Dining

When The Hindenburg
Before it became a byword for disaster, the Hindenburg heralded an era of fine dining in the skies. Passengers received seating assignments for specific meal times. After dinner, many gathered in the pressurized bar and smoking lounge.

These days, in-flight meal service often consists of a packet of pretzels and a can of soda. It's a far cry from the days of the Hindenburg, where the sumptuous dining options included multi-course meals served in an opulent dining room.

Before it became a byword for disaster 80 years ago this month, the Hindenburg was the state-of-the-art in ultra-luxury flight: a giant passenger airship composed of durable aluminum alloy filled with highly flammable hydrogen. (That would prove its downfall.)

It was conceived as a swank transatlantic travel option for the well-heeled that was faster than the deluxe cruise liners of its day, making the journey in two and a half days — twice as fast as the Queen Mary, the star of the Cunard line.
