Happy 4th of July and more!

Thought I'd make a quick entry to wish everyone a happy Holiday!  Be safe if using fireworks!  Being a retired veteran myself, I want to extend a heartfelt thanks to all who are serving, or have served in the past, this great nation of ours.
DKW and I will be having our moms and a couple of friends over for lunch on the Fourth.  Nothing fancy, just grilling some burgers, dogs, and corn-on-the-cob. While I'm cooking outside, I'm pretty sure we will partake of the meal inside.  (Gotta love A.C.)
Just a quick salute to my MSU Diamond Dogs!  Unfortunately we didn't win the College World Series,  (Congrats to UCLA) but we were one of the final two teams to be playing college baseball this year.  I'll just cross my fingers and hope that we can get back.
Now, everyone that knows me, knows that I am a huge "Doctor Who" fan.  I was first hooked when I caught the show on PBS stations in the 70's, but now know quite a bit about the show and its history.  (I get questions from folks all the time when they want to know something about it.  Well, Matt Smith is leaving the iconic role at the end of this year and there is a lot of speculation out there as to who will fill his shoes.  Among others, I've heard Hugh Laurie (of "House") and Jamie Baber (of "Battle Star Galactica").  The pro is they are both British, but the con is that they are very well known outside the UK.  One name that was thrown out in passing, is my "Spot-on, Number One" choice to play the twelfth Doctor and kick off the next (hopefully) 50 years of the show.  He is young enough (to fit in with the last 2 or 3 Docs) and quirky enough to bring a fresh take to the role.  AND, dare I say it, I think he would be a great one to rival the fantastic Tom Baker's longevity in the role.  So, without further ado (drum roll please) - my choice to play the next doctor is . . . . . . . Andrew Lee Potts.  Now, for those of us who were fans of the BBC show "Primeval", we know Andrew.  But he's not "extremely" well known and I think he would be a great Doctor.  Anyway, just throwing it out there and I'll put a pic of him at the end of this entry so that you can see who I'm talking about. 
Everyone have a great day - and a Great Holiday.
Andrew Lee Potts - My choice for DW12.
