The pattern is starting to repeat itself again this year. I don't know if it is global warming, "El Nino" or what, but rainfall in the 50th State is drastically low. On the verge of being a drought again. And until the next monsoon in the late Fall, no relief is on the horizon.

Prior to the 20th Century, very few people were exposed to EMF. In fact the exposure rate was pretty stable for most of the world until the post-WWII boom. Now, your body is bombarded 24/7 with EMF. From power lines, cars, appliances, TV & radio transmissions, cell phones and wi-fi, just to name a few. Some folks are starting to claim an allergic reaction. They probably are correct but, sadly, the genie is already out of the bottle and I don't see how we'll ever recapture it.

A Continental Airlines pilot claims that a rocket whizzed past his plane. No, not from terrorists but a model rocket. Those things can reach heights of 40,000 feet.

I see that Canada's foreign minister has resigned after a scandal involving a former girlfrined and mishandling of gov't documents. And the Prime Minister of Israel may not be in office much longer either. Just a wee bit of a corruption problem for him.

Remember taking the SAT and ACT tests in high school? They pretty much determined what college/university you would be able to apply for or be forced to accept. There seems to be a growing trend for institutions of higher education to not even look at those scores anymore.

America has gun crimes, the UK has knife crimes. A cultural difference with the same outcome. Death. I guess the Brits just want to get more "up close & personal" when they snuff out a life while the Yanks tend to go for volume. Knifes went out of style in the US after West Side Story.

I have my opinions about the immigration issue and I am sure that you have yours. McCain seems to serve his up de jour, depending on which way the wind is blowing.

The Atlantic hurricane season starts on Sunday, June 1st, and runs until the 30th of November. This year, NOAA plans on using drone aircraft to supplement our traditional "Hurricane Hunters." While the C-130's penetrate a hurricane at about 10,000 feet, the drone's mission will be to enter the storms just 300 feet above sea level. They are hoping for 2-5 missions.

Over The Limit?
