Kathleen



Kathleen is a given name, used in English and Irish-language communities. Sometimes spelled Cathleen, it is an Anglicized form of Caitlín, the Irish form of Cateline, which was the Old French form of Catherine. It ultimately derives from the Greek name Aikaterine, the meaning of which is highly debated.

Greg Maddux

Gregory Alan Maddux (born April 14, 1966), nicknamed "Mad Dog" and "The Professor", is a former Major League Baseball pitcher. He was the first pitcher in major league history to win the Cy Young Award for four consecutive years (1992–1995), a feat matched only by Randy Johnson (1999–2002). During those four consecutive seasons, Maddux had a 75-29 record with a 1.98 ERA, while allowing less than one runner per inning.

Maddux is the only pitcher in MLB history to win at least 15 games for 17 straight seasons. In addition, he holds the record for most Gold Gloves with eighteen. A superb control pitcher, Maddux won more games during the 1990s than any other pitcher, and is 8th on the all-time career wins list, with 355. Since the start of the post-1920 live-ball era, only Warren Spahn (363) recorded more career wins than Maddux. He is one of only 10 pitchers ever to achieve both 300 wins and 3000 strikeouts. He works in the Texas Rangers' front office as the special assistant to the general manager. Not a member of the Baseball Hall Of Fame (he is not eligible for inclusion until 2014), Maddux has the most pitching victories of anyone who has yet to be elected.

Well, looks like I've time-traveled, don't it? Actually, I was just getting the hang of posting and it took awhile for the first one to publish. Sorry about that....:-D

I'm new at this so it may be boring or sometimes downright stupid. I'm a transplanted Kentuckian, living in New Jersey. Even though I've lived in NJ longer than I lived in the "tri-state area", which includes Southern Indiana, where I also lived, I still am not used to NJ. In fact, I wanna go "home".... My mom and my oldest daughter live in the Louisville area and when I visit, I'm home. I feel comfortable there. Living in New Jersey is tough. People here don't seem to be as friendly. They're great at small talk and I'm not. Guess that's why I've not got any real "friends" here. Tried volunteer work, church stuff. Nothinng seems to click. Not that I had a lot of friends in Kentucky either, but it was easier to talk to people....But anyway, I'm here and guess I'm stuck here until the final days - or mine at least. I'll try to be more interesting and less self-centered next time. :-)
