That I have always lived on the edge and I wanted a place with a view. Somewhere that I could drop off the face of the Earth.
Here are some other locations that were suggested. I think I was taken a bit too literally.

We've had some breezes the past few days, which has cleared the air considerably. Not totally clean but a hell of a lot better. Looking for temps back in the 100's early next week.

The Republicans are working to find something to do with Bush at this year's convention. Just what is the big question.

"Let's all be careful out there!"


When this post went "live" today, that is how long I have lived on this planet.
  • 1,913,766,600 seconds
  • 31,896,110 minutes
  • 531,601 hours (rounded down)
  • 22,150 days (rounded down)
  • 3164 weeks (rounded down)
Here is where you can do your own calculations.

Forbes best counties in the USA to raise a family. And a listing, unknown by whom, of the 10 best places to live in the USA. Don't agree with all their choices. Do you?

The Nathan's hot dog eating competition ended in a tie yesterday and had to go into "overtime".

This guy certainly meets the definition of "deadbeat". Those "heart attacks" are going to cost him some time and money.

Italy has placed the ancient city of Pompeii under a STATE OF EMERGENCY. Considering that it was destroyed in 79ce, thats pretty rapid response, wouldn't you say? Interesting video on that link.

As I've suspected, intelligence isn't a requirement for being an on-air news personality.

100,000 Bottle Rockets in 15 seconds:

Not exciting enough?
Then how about 3.2 million firecrackers. Taking the "Superstring" theory to a new realm:

Of course, if you want pyrotechnic displays, you have to go back to the source:
The 1,676 foot Taipei 101 tower on New Years Eve -

He made Cheney look like a liberal:

The National Park Service may reopen access to the Statue of Liberty's Crown. Its been closed to public access since 9/11. I remember when you could go up the torch arm.

The planet Mercury is shrinking. Now that Pluto has been reclassified as a "Plutoid", Mercury has become the smallest planet in the solar system.

Unless you want to look like a piece of worn out shoe leather, it is time to start using sunscreen. Nothing less than spf-30 and make sure it has coverage of uvA and uvB rays. Remember, the Sun is NOT your friend.

Talk about being a day late and a dollar short:

Well, I have spent my first Fourth Of July back on the mainland. Talk about peaceful. Oh, there were the illegal pyrotechnic displays in this fireprone bone dry state. But nothing to compare with what was normal for Mau'i. A light whiff of cordite waifing through the evening's breeze. Not choking. Not thick enough to impair vision. And no attacks on my cab by teen terrorists sporting bottle rockets and roman candles. I also did not see any of the neighbors discharging the legal "safe & sane" available in California.

Never once had the feeling of being in a combat zone. The sound never loud enough to drown out the tv's audio. A peaceful night.

I hope everyone is enjoying their 3 day weekend. I'll be back later with more. Hope you can come back by.
