Another great blog from the wonderful Kathleen Bade.

I know what you’re thinking, but really people, this is a family website.  I’m referring to Before Airbrushing.  It’s also before I really understood the size and scope of this promotional campaign Fox 5 was about to roll out in May.  One in which I’m the central and only figure.

I’ve taken a lot of ribbing from co-workers (Ross Shimabuku) about these billboards, my husband’s staff has gotten in on the act of taking funny photos with my likeness, parents at my kids’ schools keep remarking “you’re everywhere.” Even Twitter followers are quick to point out where my face is popping up in their lives.  Comments are coming in as fast as my white hairs now.  (Being the overachiever I am, I skipped the gray phase altogether).

I haven’t come up with a good retort yet.  Those who know me know full well, that’s my thing, my talent, my holy grail:  the Art…

    unto his young men, Abide ye here with the ass; and I and the lad will go yonder and worship, and come again to you,Thirty milch camels with their colts, forty kine, and ten bulls, twenty she asses, and ten foals.They took their sheep, and their oxen, and their asses, and that which was in the city, and that which was in the field,And they laded their asses with the corn, and departed thence.And as one of them opened his sack to give his ass provender in the inn, he espied his money; for, behold, it was in his sack’s mouth. (some other double meanings there too)As soon as the morning was light, the men were sent away, they and their asses.Then they rent their clothes, and laded every man his ass, and returned to the city.And to his father he sent after this manner; ten asses laden with the good things of Egypt, and ten she asses laden with corn and bread and meat for his father by the way.This one might be a modern-type usage of the word:Issachar is a strong ass couching down between two burdensAnd thats just the first book of the Bible!  | 

  3. You want 3-ply pans. This means the pans are constructed of 3 metal layers typically stainless-copper-stainless. The middle layer distributes heat evenly. Sometimes aluminum is used for the middle layer. Make sure the pans you buy are constructed of 3-play on the sides and not just the bottom. The cheaper pans have a thick 3-ply bottom and just one layer of stainless forming the sides of the pan. I own All-Clad. This is top of the line cookware. I think Williams Sonoma had a 4-ply version of All Clad and in my opinion thats just a waste of money. Buy your cookware in a set and you will save money. When buying the good stuff remember it will probably last a life-time unlike most non-stick pans. Also, I prefer using stainless instruments like spatulas when using stainless pans.

  5. Saw the Threshers last night for the 8th (and final, heading north tomorrow) time this spring, and actually saw Cosart for the 4th time. He threw 91 pitches, 59 for strikes, his best command was obviously his FB, lesser with his change-up(I think, hard to tell, might have been a slider) and his curve his worst. Looks to me that’s the pitch he’ll be working on as most young pitchers usually do. Of the 8 hits he gave up, 2 were infield hits, one was a blooper, but the other 5 were well hit, one off a curve the others off his fastball. He kept his FB down on those hits so either they were over the plate or they are just good low ball hitters. Just a comment on Cosart’s last start, it really shouldn’t have been as bad(5er) as it was. In the 5th he had 2 outs and a man on 2nd (already down 2-0) and a 1-2 count on a guy he already twice struck out, but he hit him , then gave up back to back doubles making the score 5-0. So he could have been out of the inning but instead gives up 3 runs.Just a few comments on the hitters:Singleton- First time I saw him hit was 2010 ST when he was with the EST group playing a college team and what impressed me right away was how hard he hit the ball. Well 2 levels up he still doing the same thing and I hope he continues right up the ladder.Castro-Everybody knows he doesn’t take pitches but he also hits the ball very hard and has a good arm. I think his ceiling is as a 4th OFSavery- He could end up a Ross Gload type, with less power. He’s not afraid to take pitches or hit with 2 strikes and hits a lot of balls the other way even though the 1 homer I saw him hit went to RF.Ruf- He surprised me with his athleticism at 3rd(he made one great dive to his right and hopped up and threw the runner out) but not sure he’ll ever hit enough for any position.Mattair- He surprised me with his bat this year especially after his season at Lakewood, he’s actually looked very interesting. Just have to see how he progresses.Valle- worried about him, he really has an upper cut swing, and not many of those are in the big leagues.James- I still have a lot of hope for him despite his low average, because he hits a lot of balls hard just needs to lower those K’s.
