Saturday video break: Let’s have a little talk about tweetle beetles

I give you Dr. Seuss’ “Fox in Socks”, read by someone who can read it a lot faster than I can:

She goes so fast I can’t really swear that she’s actually reading what’s on the pages in question. The loud reactions from the audience don’t help, either. It’s still pretty damned impressive. Those of you of a certain age may be reminded of this classic commercial:

You think maybe she could be his daughter?

    If you didn’t go see the movie Secretariat, it is now out on CD and a movie worth seeing even though it is not completely “historically” factual. Secretariat was the greatest racehorses that ever lived, a sire of runners, decent sire and an outstanding broodmare sire. I don’t believe there will ever be another on like Secretariat AKA “Big Red.”

    There is an equally great QH racehorse named Dash For Cash who hails from the same female family as Secretariat. Dash For Cash was an outstanding racehorse, sire of runners, sire of sires, broodmare sire, and broodmare sire of sires. The artist Jim Reno did bronze sculptures of both horses and it their measurements were almost the same. They resembled one another also. Dash For Cash’s best son, First Down Dash surpassed his sire.

    Secretariat, Dash For Cash and First Down Dash also had a common factor: great heart of the X-factor gene.
