When we Mature, we Grow!


 MATURE- the state, fact, or period of being mature.

"their experience, maturity, and strong work ethic"

This may be a theme, but talking to my dad last night he says I can't believe how much Jayson Tatum has matured! 

Say what you want about the in the heat of moments when he questions the refs. If I were him I'd do the same knowing the bias refs have against Celtics players. 

For those of us who have been watching JT since he entered league, you can say this- that young man has grown each and every year. His game and his body have shown that each and every year. This season we are truly watching something special! 

Offensively the only holes I see are the fixation on the three, that's a team and league wide issue. Yet when he's on from deep NO ONE CAN STOP HIM! His ability to hit mid range shots is strong, when he posts up it's game over. Last night he hit a rainbow fade away that said Michael Jordan to me! His strength has given him the gift of getting to the rim and bringing the House Down! 

His skills as a passer are a clear sign of his basketball IQ, dare I say he's heading into Larry Bird type status there! He reads double teams, and just has a knack of finding the right guy. We always knew he had the offensive skills. Since last season and now his D is becoming elite! He also has no fear in guarding the other teams best players! 

In a few weeks I'll get to see him up close and personal with dad, and let me say I expect to see a very mature performance by him! 

Bleed Green! Celtic Pride!

Rules of survival: When search-and-rescue turns into body recovery

 How the Hell did this happen? Two days after 19-year-old Emily Sotelo was supposedly dropped off in Franconia Notch (NH) at roughly 5:00 AM ET, Sunday, November 20, 2022 by her mother, to hike several mountains alone, the search continues for the young lady. Photo by Linda Lane The information from news agencies indicated that Emily started hiking the trails while it was still dark. She was supposedly wearing only sneakers, a coat and workout pants. I can persona;ly attest that the weather in the area was very cold with high wind speeds, and gaining elevation on the trails would only add to the horrendous conditions. Ms. Sotelo was reportedly a seasoned hiker, but had little or no experience hiking in winter. At the peaks, temperatures on that Sunday dropped to zero degrees with a wind chill of minus-30 degrees. It is beyond my comprehension to imagine a hiker-of-experience tackling that kind of travel - in extreme weather - with only basic clothes and few (or no) supplies. I have hik

The Elm Street Nightmare

 A true-and-suspenseful horror tale of haunting, homicides and the hunt for triple-murderer, Daniel Laplante - as told by the cops that were there By Lt. Thomas Lane (Ret.)  Daniel Laplante - cold, calm, clever, calculating- Photo: YouTube   Elm Street  surfaces on four occasions in the Laplante saga: 1.) He  resided on Elm Street  in Townsend, Massachusetts 2.) He  kidnapped a woman  at gunpoint on  Elm Street, Pepperell , Massachusetts 3.) He was arrested and transported to Massachusetts State Police Barracks on Elm Street in Concord . 3.) He was  tried, convicted   and sentenced for the murders at  Superior Court , corner of  Elm Stree t and Gorham Street, Lowell, Massachusetts. When evil and cleverness reside in the same mind, the stage is often set for true horror. Such was the case with triple-murderer, Daniel Laplante . As a 16-year old , he quickly transitioned from: Minor thefts and breaking into homes To: Taunting and threatening a father and his two daughters as an unseen
