Something a little unusual for a dark and dreary day

Last night as I was on my way to the City Council meeting, I noticed workers in what was Larry's Shoe Repair. Today I stopped to look through the window and saw that the inside was being remodeled into what appears to be an office.

Today I checked an e-mail to see what was going on this week at SJC and noticed that the football team was playing a school I had never heard of, The University of God's Chosen. Curious, I looked them up on the Internet. They are a new school, started on July 14, 2014. I could not find an address for the campus, if any exists. The first sentence on their home page is, "We are the University of God’s Chosen (UGC), a non-profit university dedicated to using sports to build relationships in multiple cultural settings." Checking their academics page, you read this, "Our goal is to improve our students academically and provide them the opportunity to play sports at the collegiate level. Students of UGC are required to be enrolled in an accredited online college to earn credits towards a degree." It seems to be kind of weird, but higher education is full of weirdness these days.

Something to brighten up an otherwise dark and dreary day as we get some rain from what is left of Hurricane Patricia.
