    How is everyone doing with the heat and then the T-storms and hail in the southern Piedmont in NC & SC?

    It's just another hot summer. Soon it will be fall. Next comes winter.

    The corporate media will spin anything into a rare catastrophe worthy of government attention and increased spending. Their primary job is to constantly remind you how much you need them...of course, we don't need them at all.

    I think you can fix it yourself, but if you can't, we will. Go to edit, go advanced, should be straight forward from there.

    We have been getting more rain here in sunny Florida too, not enough to bring the drought-stricken lakes and rivers back completely but it helps.
    Bad thing is, the wetness has really brought out the mosquitos! I literally get swarmed battling my way to the van each morning, and when I park and get to the house in the evening. Cannot be outside long before nearly getting buried in them! Gotta see if I can find some backyard fogger spray!

    The lower temps sure are a welcome relief. The AC actually cut off last night--first time in three weeks--power bill will be a killer. Been holding off planting the fall garden but today is the day--between showers--YES. Good thing about the drought is that we have not cranked the mower in about a month. The places we watered are needing a trim and the drain fields (septic lines) but they can wait.

    I tell my kids every night at dinner that they should be thankful that we have power and A/C (and food/house/etc). I feel for the people without power....

    On the flip-side...we made it for 1000s of years without A/C....I guess we could cope.

    Snowed here yesterday. Temps well below the norm, don't know about you, I'm ready for some of that global warming....

    Don't know if I'll even get spuds this year in the garden.
