Football. Once again it is that time of year when we Americans obsess over who will make it to the Super Bowl. The fate of our beloved Cardinals has been decided as they got crushed by San Francisco.

The gifts are unwrapped. Holiday decorations are coming down. We ushered in a New Year. Another chance to look forward to what is coming and to let go of what didn’t work. We have a whole new chapter to write. And saying “goodbye” to a year gone and anticipating a chance at new beginnings might be the real thrill of a New Year.

Mental fatigue. Post-election hangovers. So much to contemplate. Winners and losers. Time to reflect and take it all in. And remove all of those campaign signs from every street corner! We need a rest from all the political ads. Let’s give ourselves a time-out.

I won the lottery (in my dreams). I see it all now, flashing before me. I turn on the television and watch excitedly when they call out the winning numbers. Nervously, I look down at my Powerball ticket and then in complete disbelief, I realize I have won 1 billion bucks!

Soon. Day of the Dead. Dia de los Muertos is approaching. So is Halloween. In Mexico, the holiday is a time when families welcome back the souls of their deceased relatives for a brief reunion that includes food, drink and celebration.

Flippy, move over. There is a new tin can in town. Elon Musk debuted Optimus, the “robot of the future.”

Sometimes, we just need a friend. A buddy who will walk miles through a scorching desert, escape the perils of predators, suffer through the wind, rain and dust of monsoons with no map, GPS or cell phone, just to make it up your driveway, saunter in through your open door (or doggy door) and once again, grace your life with a visit.

Oh Freya, how we loved you. Named after the Norse Goddess of beauty and love, you were 1,300 pounds of blubber, a chubby maiden of the sea, with all your sea mammal splendor and plus-size personality.

The British are coming! Yes, it is that time of year again! Would like some chips? No, not potato chips! I mean delicious French fries that are perfect with battered cod, which is a staple in all pubs in Great Britain. The annual British Pub Night and Fundraiser is a fine time for those of us who want to enjoy a wonderful meal, plus Old English entertainment. But first, let’s get in the “British mood.”

Oh Alexa, how did we ever manage without you? “I am not certain of this and have no opinion,” Alexa replies dryly. OK, Alexa, please speak to me in my mother’s voice and give me the weather report. “Judy, it is sunny today with a high of 95 degrees. Wear sunshade.” Thanks Mom, I needed that.

Roe versus Wade. Three little words. Millions of opinions, celebrations, protests, anguish, and jubilation. We have entered a new era, like it or not. Maybe our views, pro or con on the ruling don’t matter as much as our actions, especially in the days ahead.

Shortages. Our new reality. If we could only figure out what is next to be delayed, out of stock or unavailable, it might help us plan our lives. Instead, we have entered the chaotic world of “uncertainty.”

What do you have in common with a goldfish? Evidently more than you could ever imagine. Scientists now claim that the average adult’s attention span is eight seconds. A goldfish? Nine seconds.
