Spent yesterday out on the ocean, didn't catch a thing again but had a wonderful day anyway. I was blessed with seeing lots of seals like the little guy above and even a few porpoises. Passed a Maine Lighthouse, Fort Knox, and the new bridge with a built-in look out tower.

Harper, thank you for posting that. You might be interested in this book written by my friend, Joy Gordon about the Iraq Sanctions - and the death they cause and that they never, ever do any good as far as averting armed conflict.

Good luck on the move and I hope that you put your clean underwear, toothpaste and deodorant where you can find them in the morning!

Peace and Plenty,

Just watched that video and have to say it IS offensive, and worse. Insulting, naive and ludicrous quickly jump to mind. To say our service people are racists is disgusting. To say we treated them worse than Hussein is as idiotic as it is offensive. And as for the same old, tired, 60's hippie explanation for all wars - I'm still waiting for the cheap Iraqi oil we were going to steal. Please point me to these cheap gas stations cause they ain't in my neighborhood. Lastly, I heard MANY times that we would be occupying Iraq (and Afghanistan) forever - of course to exploit the people and resources, force our way of life on them, intimidate the neighboring countries, yada, yada. Last I checked, we are completely out of Iraq and will be out of the other one in two years.

Sorry - don't want to cause problems or initiate a long discussion of this taboo topic, but I felt this needed to be responded to.

Hope your move went smoothly, Harper, & that you will be happy in your new home...War is hell, Victor, and there is great misery on all sides... freedom from tyranny must be accomplished for all people...as you know, my DH was in WW11, but he also had Quaker relatives, so he saw both sides of the argument...there is no easy way...we can only pray that peace will come for all of us...

Just read this...

CDC: West Nile season off to an early start
ATLANTA (AP) More serious illnesses from West Nile virus have been reported so far this year than any since 2004, health officials said Wednesday.

Through the end of July, 241 human cases have been reported in 22 states, including four deaths. Texas, especially around the Dallas area, has seen the bulk of them.

Health officials believe the mild winter, early spring and very hot summer have fostered breeding of the mosquitoes that spread the virus to people.

Most West Nile infections are reported in August and September, so it's not clear how bad this year will be. But it doesn't look good.

Off to the hospital tomorrow to begin a new road of trying to solve the extreme fatigue and pain riddle. Ultrasound, MRI, and more blood tests...then endocrinologist consult to see where we go from here. Our trip is very likely a no go, but I'm not giving up yet. If not this year, maybe next. I just want the answers and I will be able to deal with a solution. When you can't weed, it's time for answers. Latest blood tests were totally screwy. Pretty blooms, sweet puppies and a loving husband have helped the spirits every day, so it's all good. :)

the magnets do work although they are a sensitive piece of equipment - usually require a $100 tune up each year and the cost of the bait, trap, is crazy. we have one and it works most of the time although i just had to bring it in to charge the battery. west nile was found here in the last couple of weeks, no one has come down with it so far.

Thanks, guys, for all the great support and prayers. I know I haven't been able to keep up much, and that is a bummer, but I'll be back in the saddle sooner than later, I hope. I have tried very hard to ignore this and keep smiling, but it's time to see what is going on and fix it...so my friend's daughter gave me a French manicure today and now I can face whatever! LOL. Thank you all again. Means so much!

Baby Adam is not getting good reports although since being home he has done amazingly well! It's so weird how being home he has gotten stronger, can reach for things now and hold his own head up pretty good. He eats solids again and is babbling away in conversation with you like you taped his mouth shut for those 4 months he was in the hospital. He has continued to have chemo once a week while he was home but it seems that wasn't enough. :(
On the inside a war was brewing and now he'll have to fight again. He has new tumors, several that have grown along his head, some have grown on the gray matter of his brain and the largest is about the size of a pea. He was admitted Wed. back into the Barbra Bush wing of the hospital where they will start a stronger more aggressive treatment.
Please keep him in your prayers, im no fool folks, i've been reading everything I can on this cancer. Science, documentation and common sense tells me it's only a matter of time. Most kids die within 9 -17 months...but I still believe in miracles.

Don't know about that, wha. His FIL was supposed to go also, but had hurt his knee badly and needed surgery. DIl's cousin and wife went too. My son grew out a beard for the trip and DIL said that the river guides were very jealous of it. Heehee.

She said yesterday they were on a raft, helicopter, 2 little shuttle buses, a little plane and a larger plane. They were taken to a dude ranch where they could use the shower facilities. After 7 days she was glad for that.

Think your job is tough? My homicide detective BIL recently investigated a case of a severely autistic five year old boy who had trouble dealing with jealousy over his recently born little brother. When the mom was out of the nursery, the older brother pulled out the drawers of the dresser and used them as steps to climb into the crib. He then threw his baby brother across the room, killing him.

Can you file a complaint with a gov't agency ?

You might get re-considered, if you don't mind a hostile workplace.

A lot of places have low-key hostility levels, even towards well-behaved employees who have never made a fuss.

I think all 50 states have some sort of bait-and-switch laws on the books. Just mentioning "possible legal action" can sometimes get results; employers don't want legal costs, or a community black eye.

Tell the (bad guy *blanks*) that TV stations and newspapers LOVE to reveal abuse stories like this, so that the "average Joe" will become a sympathetic regular viewer.

Also: were these interviewers "harvesting" the personal info of the prospective job applicants?

They might be selling those social security #s or addresses, or your phone number to supplement their business activity.

In the 1980's, I went through a detailed application form at Radio Shack, and AFTER they collected my personal info, they said they had just filled the position...and they refused to give me back my application (or to black out the ss # !!!!!!).

We have to get pro-active about these kinds of practices, folks.

My sister who lives near Prescott in Arizona declared bankruptcy late last year while neither she nor her husband had jobs or prospects of jobs at the time. Hubby finally got a job last month in Phoenix - so he rents an apartment and comes home (2 hours) on the weekend. Now she has been offered a job in Cottonwood which is 125 miles from where their house is located! Jobs are very sparse in Az and this is a County job so there are benefits including lifetime medical insurance if she retires from the County. I am glad that I am not in her shoes!

Hi all. There's been no time even to click a cell phone camera, though maybe this week! Our triplets start college moving-in next weekend. They're nearly all ready, working until we leave. I'd like to record the music they play before they go.

How are people handling the weeds with all the heat and thurnderstorms? I've resorted to spreading paper bags in the garden.

My bill from today's purchases at the drugstore including kids' prescriptions and a month of contact lenses came to about $900. And they had been collecting stuff all summer. It's been easy to get our cars serviced. Everyone who sees me walking offers a ride and we share what our kids are doing. This is a milestone the same as a birth.

I am trying the Pantech Emerge, which is an Android. Either I'm not used to it or there are some bugs. Very tempted to exchange it for the iphone. The pairing of the phone with the tablet is what sold me, so Apple would cost some big bucks while the Pantech is under $200 with the plan. I'm still very conservative with its use because the minutes for the data plan go way too fast and everyone is trying it out. I thought I'd try it while we're traveling soon.

ATT guy told me by end of september there will be some changes in the data plans. They said it positively--one cost for an entire family plan. My DS says it's because they have to start limiting the public's use because everyone's getting them.

Thanks for the good wishes, Ronnie and all.

Yeah, my phone was free too. It's the data plan that costs the bucks, and an ipad would really cost some money in a package. My DH was talking about getting a smart phone, too. That's when I sprang for mine. I really need it for work and he seldom even charges his. It isn't fully reimbursed by the commonwealth, though I do get a slight discount with either ATT or Verizon.

(not admitting I have a phone) A Trackfone was given to me 4 years ago. I would buy a 30 minute card and it had no experation. I have bought 3 cards in 4 years.

Now the 30 mins will expire in 90 days.

The whole matter of having this thing is when Jim goes up into the woods with the tractors. If someone got hurt out in the middle of no where, I accept them having a phone.

Celeste, are you going to buy fancy running clothes and shoes that light up? Got to get something good for all your pain!

They are repaving the street I live on. I came home last night and when I hit the driveway - I literally hit the driveway! The ground down street is 8" lower than the edge of my cement apron! Banged up the bracket that holds the stabilizer bar, but it seems to work OK. I put a 4x4 in the street so I can ease up the apron - but I am not going out again until Monday morning if I can help it. There is a sewer drain at one edge of the driveway that has sunk over the years. I will call the city first thing Monday morning to see if they can come out and raise it back up - or I may have to have a new apron poured.

There are only 90 in the entire park so this was truly a treat. Will talk more about it when I post pics. Hope everyone is good. MIL was transferred back to the hospital once again. Saw her today. Some type of high pressure in her urinary system. They still have not pinpointed it. Baby London is improving slowly.

I'm debating if I'm going back to mine, getting tired of the same old stuff, need some motivation to keep me going. So hard to do it at home though.

Sounds real good! Classes or just a gym? I like the classes, can't get motivated to do it on my own. I get bored.
