    Just had an IM conversation with someone in the Czech Republic who told me they "are responsible for the prolongation of a week end". I got the point, but am saddened by where our jobs are heading.

    Jdizz scores a major victory in court today with a change in visitation schedule. I have been limited to every other weekend forever. I gave up a movement for primary placement due to financial cost, but addressed the need for change in visitation schedule. I have been awarded every other week during the summer and am going for every weekend during the school year, which will be addressed at a later date. More to the story on this day in court, and it's good, but I have a meeting to go to.

    Just wanted to brag.

    Greetings earthlings! RH and WD send a big Hiya to all, he is bizzy traveling about on Cheapo Airlines!

    Sending Truth some buckets of water, borrowed from AleeD of course.
    Sending AleeD a big bag of wind to blow Debby's azz West where they need the rain. (I saw Truth's comment, so I plead a major blonde moment).

    Turns out an errand I had to run today has opened up an opportunity for me to get my car fixed up!

    -New battery (for the love of all that's good) CHECK
    -New tires (Sooner rather than later) IN PROGRESS
    -New wiper blades CHECK

    -Air freshener CHECK

    Just need to wait for the tires to come in and take 'em over to get them mounted somewhere...

    And oh... I have been indulging in watching old "Two Fat Ladies" episodes recently.

    Hello everyone... I think this is the last of the watermelon I have so far.

    Satellite images of the Colorado wildfires:

    • Truth™@MicheleG

      Good image, but it does not do justice to the smoke. The news is warning people with respiratory issues to stay inside, and our sunset last night was bright orange, in a way you don't often see. I hate like heck to think of what July and August will be like.

        Stay tuned for the Long Hot Summer.

        I think the entire inter mountain west is going to be on the front burner this summer (already is, really) and the burner flame is going to be turned up to HIGH.

        Douse your barbecues and cigarettes, please and prepare to watch the firefighter's air show. It's going to be a big one.

    A Mod Bot observation: If I type out a comment (within known Mod Bot parameters) the Bots are happy. If I copy, say, a word someone else has used (dumbazzez – I typed it, not copied) and then add my words, the Bots have issues.

    No copying, I guess. I was making a disparaging comment on dumbazz median IQ. (sigh...)

      I think it's a tax return.

        Or maybe they discovered one of their kids is on the 10 most wanted list.................

          Maybe they are looking at one of *those* websites...;)

          You just never know what kinds of recreational activities your parents might enjoy!

          I know they do the nasty, but I don't NEED those kinds of details. Somebody pass the eye bleach please.

    Morning all! Hope everyone's doing well today and doing their best to stay dry.

    We got a new air conditioning unit in the office today. So far it's working well past expectations as I am feeling colder then ever! Might need a few tweaks...

    Good morning. Overcast but cool here today in NY. I hope your weather breaks soon, Truth, and AleeD, I hope the storm leaves your area soon. Did anyone see the video on the news yesterday showing the baby bear using someone's garage door track as a jungle gym? So cute!!

    June 26, 2012 at 8:34 am |
    • MicheleG™

      Yeah, it's all over the news as the "cute" item for the day.

      June 26, 2012 at 10:19 am |
    • Mildred

      Yeah, the temperature dropped like a rock the past few days. What part of NY are you from? (I'm from Albany.)

        Little town called Patterson, about 10,000 people west of Danbury CT and about an hour north of NYC.

    Good morning all. We added another wildfire yesterday. We're up to eleven statewide. The folks fighting them are nothing short of saints, imho. And believe it or not, there are still dumbazzez out there who are complaining about the fireworks ban.

    How is everyone doing today?

    June 26, 2012 at 8:22 am |
    • AleeD®

      Funny thing about your dumbazzes, we have the same kind of stupidity here. Ours drive thru unfamiliar flooded areas as fast as they can then complain when their cars don't make it to the other side and the engine won't turn over. Would that I could send some of this rain your way – some intelligence, too. ;)

    Good morning! I have some Mint Tea for the group and some Berry Bread getting ready to come out of the machine :-) Also a new recipe up on DancingVeggies, this time a California Enchilada so hopefully our CA klatschers approve!

    Good morning folks. That biotch Debby is still out there. Slo-azz mo-fo. I need to stir up a bigger wind than dear old Deb and color her gone. Speaking of big winds: Rich, has WD eaten those redhots yet?

    JBJ, Truth has the truth of it. Debby is an annoying bag of wind in the Gulf o'Mexico (and thanks for the welcoming words). Fish, company and tropical storms stink after 3 days. Today makes day 4 and she stinks to high heaven.

    Jdizz, I hope you sanded off that wood before you gave it to her. Splinters are restricted to dungeon activities.

    Truth, how much DO you hate Summer?
