I LOVE this channel!! Along with NatGeo!!!! My favorite program is ‘Deadliest Catch’!! A REAL reality show!! King Crab fishing in the Bering Sea is truly the deadliest job in the world!! So many men die each season that’s it’s unbeleivable!! It’s hard work and sometimes they work 48 hours on and 4 hours off!! And the Winter storms with their 50 foot waves and 70 mph winds make it almost impossible to fish, and yet, they press on! Why?? Because each deckhand can make $80,000 to $100,000 in a month!! If you happen to fall overboard?? You have MAYBE 20 minutes to live!!
My other favorite is ‘Dirty Jobs’!! Too funny!! Mike Rowe takes on the dirtiest jobs around and he cracks me up!! (He is also the narrator on Deadlist Catch)! Some of the jobs he accepts are just too funny!! If I had one person to choose to sit at a bar have a few drinks with, it would be HIM!!!
Another great one is ‘Man vs Wild’! They drop him off (usually out of an airplane!) at the most inhospitable places on earth, armed with a canteen and a knife! His job is to survive and find his way out! His name is Bear Grihls!! He was in the British Special Forces. Oh yeah….. And eats ANYTHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I once saw him pee into his canteen and, you got it!!! But ladies?? You will love him!!
BUT!!!!!!! It’s Shark Week!!!!!!!! I just watched two divers ‘hypnotizing’ sharks by gently rubbing the top of their heads!!! It’s called ‘Tonic’! Unbeleivable!! It got to the point where the other 200 sharks get jealous and fight for attention! WOW!! These are Great Whites and Tiger Sharks!! This guy is ‘riding’ a Great White…… 75 feet!!!!! WOW WOW WOW!!!!!!
OK! Enough of this!! But if you get Discovery, tune in!!
But one more thing!! The commercials are becoming better than the actual shows!!!!
Dinner tonight?? Pizza!! Domino’s?, Papa John’s?, Pizza Hut???!! nope!! We have a ‘Mom and Pop’ place around the corner who make the BEST!! Even their plain cheese one’s are marvelous!! Their secret?? They rub garlic on the crust befor adding the toppings!! Better yet?? a 16", one topping pizza goes for $7!!! Hard to beat that!!
Back to Jimmy Buffett!! Funny song!! VERY FUNNY!! I may have to play one more tomorrow.
Hope you all had a Wonderful weekend!!
PS: Dammit!! I HATE myself!! I have been a crappy friend!! TOMORROW!! I am visiting!!! (Throwing my hat down…)!! Just know that I love ALL of you!!!!
