HOORAY!

Two more guinea pigs have moved on to a new herd!!!!!

Pig Tally: 4

We're down to half of them. Thank goodness. They were really irritating the you-know-what out of me.

Ok, that 's all. I am going to do the happy dance now.

P.S. Thanks, mom, for the favor you did for me today.

Oppressive Heat or Torrential Rains?

Here in Northwest Ohio, the weather this summer has been... well, strange.

It started out to be a very wet and stormy season. So far this summer, we have SHATTERED rainfall records. In July alone, we surpassed a record set in the 1800's. Let me repeat that: we had more rain than this area had seen in close to 200 years!

And when it's not raining, it seems to be unbearably hot. (Yes, I know, most of the country has experienced unbelievably hot temperatures this summer.)I spoke to someone in Texas during our most recent oppressive heatwave, and he told me that the temperature there was the same as our "feels like" (heat index) temperature. However, he arrived here in Northwest Ohio the next day, and couldn't believe how much hotter it seemed here.

This brings me to something that might make you think I'm conspiracy-minded. The movie "The Day After Tomorrow." If you've seen this movie, bear with me for a moment. The movie is about what happens when we see actual proof of Global Warming. But it happens almost over night. The currents in the Atlantic Ocean change so drastically within a few days that it entirely changes the world's climate. North America becomes a frozen tundra literally overnight.
So what I thought of the other day while watching this movie is this: This movie is going to turn out to be a premonition. My reasoning?

1. The hurricane forecast is constantly being downgraded for this season. The US is having record-breaking heat waves, which I believe (if I know anything about weather)is keeping the hurricanes/tropical storms at bay.

2. South Africa is having a record-breaking winter. As in snowfall accumulation where there has only been trace amounts recorded before. Workers going outside to stare at snow falling, because they've never seen it before.

3. Last year's weather headlines: devastating tsunamis. Hurricane Katrina...

Dear "Anonymous"

Dear "Anonymous",

I'm not sure what to make of the tone of your comment. Therefore, I will make of it what I considered to be your meaning:

From Exodus 20:4.

"You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them..."

Those are not MY words. I'm merely quoting them. I can show you my sources, If you like.

Enough!

Quit with the television commercials for churches.

It's not about the building.

It's not about the preacher/pastor/priest.

It's not about the music.

It's ABOUT GOD.

God isn't a fad.

Very Good Day

I just want to say, "Thank you, Mom!"

I had what I rate as a Very Good Day today. Nothing extraordinary happened. It was just a Very Good Day.

I hung out with my mom, sister, and the kids today. Ok, I'll admit I think I babysat while mom and Elissa worked in the yard (their REAL reason for inviting me over). But I had fun. The kids are nuts. Seriously. They're nuts. Alex played in a dryer-sized cardboard box, rolling over and over, and tipping it up and then on its side... Just nuts. We all went to Wendy's for lunch, and I didn't even get my own Frosty, and it still was a Very Good Day.

By the way, did you know that they have vanilla Frosty's now? YUM!

So Thank You, Mom. Even if you had alterior motives, I appreciate it ;)

P.S. Neener neener: I didn't get any mosquito bites :P

All I have to say is that with the heat index, it topped out at 110 today. The air temp topped at 96.

Yuck

Yuck

Is this what they mean by global warming?
