Rub-a-dub with me....

'Are we gonna get wet in the hot-tub'? 'YEAH' 'Are we gonna sweat in the hot-tub'? 'YEAH'
ATLANTA (AP) - "Godfather of Soul" James Brown remained the hardest-working man in show business to the end, telling friends from his hospital bed that he'd be in Times Square on New Year's Eve, even though he had pneumonia. His heart gave out a few hours later, on Christmas morning.

I got hopes and dreams and plans and schemes enough to make you cry.....
Few places are less festive than a supermarket checkout in December, with overworked staff scanning frozen hams and bags of mixed nuts as fast as they can. Not all of us find it easy to spare a smile for these hardworking people at Christmas. But there is now one more reason to give checkout staff our sympathy: Not only do they labor for low rewards, but they are also being spied upon by economists.

I can imagine little more frightening or more psychedelic than the idea of being in a hot tub with James Brown. My 90 year old uncle also passed away yesterday, peacefully in his sleep. He was the last sibling of either of my parents. The end of a couple of eras....

I'm sorry to hear about your uncle, David. That is a tough lose.

The 'hot tub' JB reference is from an Eddie Murphy skit back in his SNL days.
