Share with a friend

More reggae music on this fine-lookin’ Thursday, with Bob Marley and the Wailers doing “Oh, what a rat race.” And it really is, you know, and I’m glad to be out of it (pun unintended). Go Bob. Tell it like it is. “Rasta don’t work for no CIA.” And then there’s this real gem: “In an abundance of water, a fool is thirsty.”

Rat Race (cover) with lyrics

Need a garage, self-contained and heated, preferably a double to store overflow including, possibly, a car. Please Private Message me on Facebook if you think you can help me.

Also looking to sell an electric, cordless lawn mower, charger included, in excellent working order, two seasons old, paid over $300; want $125. Please Private Message me on Facebook if you’re interested.

World Cup Action

Same as yesterday except for the bread, head.
By the way, Jase B. won $250 plus a $25 bonus in Wednesday’s JuicyLesson.
I decided to award the bonus to Jase, not because he’s good-looking because he isn’t, but because he actually added another photo to match an existing pic-less caption. (“Muller celebrating his goal …” Caption was included but pic wasn’t.)

Congratulations Jase B. Call me. We will work out the logistics involved in your getting your hands on the $275.

Same deal as yesterday EXCEPT for the money. No prize money is being offered today. This is due to the fact that, judging from the minuscule number of entries I received yesterday, $250 doesn’t seem to be enough to do the trick and I can’t see myself getting it together, at least not at the moment anyway, to increase the prize money being offered to, let’s say, at least $500.

So today, purely for the fun of it, match each of the following captions to its correct photo from those found beneath the captions. Unlike as in Wednesday’s JuicyLesson, there are an equal number of captions and photographs today.

Answers will be provided as part of an upcoming JuicyLesson.

All captions and photos come from Wednesday’s semi-final game between the Argentinians and Holland from which Argentina emerged victorious, winning the shoot-out 4 goals to two.

I picked Holland but we saw that Argentina emerged unscathed following a penalty shoot-out victory over a very game Dutch side. That semi-final match brings my record to 8-6.

The World Cup final for this year will see Argentina meet Germany. The game will be played this Sunday, 13th July 2014, at 15h00.

My heart says Argentina but my mind is telling me that the Germans will win their third World Cup since 2002. Note that 2014 marked the sixteenth straight time that Germany has made the Round of 8, the World Cup quarter-finals in other words.

Just to be clear, I pick Germany to win Sunday’s game vs. Argentina, therefore securing possession of the 2014 edition of the World Cup.

Peace. Out
