Thank You, Sir George

We lost a giant yesterday. I am talking about the producer of “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.”

Think about his contributions to “Yesterday”, “Penny Lane“, “Eleanor Rigby”, “Strawberry Fields Forever“, “In My Life“, “A Day in the Life” and “Good Night” to name a few. They are beautiful Beatles tunes for sure.

Sir George Martin was brilliant. I can’t say he will be missed because there are many tunes that I listen to that have his contributions.

All I can say is thank you, Sir George.

Uh, oh! Better get all your recycling done ASAP. Check these tweets:

This means the city’s recycling program will likely halt after next Wednesday, when its contract with Waste Management expires. #houcouncil

Turner said he’ll make an announcement on Monday about how the city can move forward with recycling in a cost-efficient manner. #houcouncil

So Waste Management is out for now.

Then this tweet:

Mayor @SylvesterTurner says the city will not be bullied into a bad recycling deal. We will look for additional players in this market.

In today’s Chron, the head of H-Town’s Solid Waste Management Department said Waste Management is the only firm capable of handling the amount of materials that folks from H-Town recycle annually.

So this ought to get interesting.

Being tough with Waste Management is one thing. Not being able to fully recycle is another. I am not going to like it and I don’t think I am alone.

Of the current ‘Stros, who has the most career dingers?

All I can say is some Dems want the presidential primary to continue. They also want Secretary Hillary Clinton to stay on the progressive course. Maybe they think she will move toward the center once Senator Bernie Sanders is out. So some Dems are going to keep fighting for Bernie like they did yesterday in Michigan.  It could very well be a trust thing.

I get that and I am OK with that.

Colby Rasmus of course has 141 career dingers.

On Friday, July 22 when we host the Angels at The Yard,  10,000 fedoras will be handed out. Yes, fedoras.
