Random Thoughts

I'm linking up with Stacy for Random Tuesday Thoughts.
I'm so proud of our Houston Astros for choosing to accept the invitation to visit the White House.  Regardless of who is in office, it is an honor and a privilege to visit our nation's capitol and meet with the President of the United States.

The president of business operations had this to say when the Astros received the invitation:

“This is a tradition and an honor. For many people, this might be their only time to ever be invited to the White House,” Astros president of business operations Reid Ryan told the Houston Chronicle at the time. “And as the representatives of baseball and the World Series champs, when the White House calls and invites you to come up, it’s something that as an organization we felt both a responsibility and an obligation to be part of.” (Source)

Putting politics aside to be honored for your outstanding performance is a characteristic of a true champion.

And in other sports news... Our Houston Rockets are number one in the league right now!  I would be so thrilled if the Rockets won the championship, too!

And on another note... This animated Uncle Ben's commercial seems to come on frequently, and every time it does, it creeps me out.

Why, you ask?  It's the song.  A little kid is singing Peter Frampton's "Show Me the Way."  I was a teenager when that song was popular.  It became a hit after it was released on Frampton Comes Alive in 1976.  Some of the original lyrics: 

 I watch you when you're sleeping
And then I want to take your love
Oh won't you show me the way
I want you day after day

So when I hear a little kids singing some of these words (albeit not all of them), it seems creepy to me.

And this is creepy...

Did Amazon ever figure out what was causing the creepy laugh?  Was it a hoax?  Or was it genuinely a glitch that has been fixed?  I never really heard the outcome.

And this- this is definitely NOT creepy!  It makes me laugh every time, no matter how many times I've seen it!

And that's all I have for today!  Have a happy week!
