Panorama ~ Princes ~ Plumbridge ~ Beer ~ Knotty & Gang

Good 54º (heat wave!) morning. Gadz. Summer has arrived. Dang. Wanted more Spring. Was 90º yesterday, today will probably be the same.

Because it's so warm I have the dining room windows open. All I can hear is that danged rooster up at the neighbors. I'd like to strangle him! WHY would you want roosters???? They are as irritating as someone sitting next to you chewing with their mouth open!


And here is the Princess I apparently disturbed taking pictures! LOL


Today is my nephew's birthday. Jim Plumbridge, real estate agent at Lake Tahoe in Tahoe City, former USN, husband, dad, golfer ...  HAPPY BIRTHDAY JIMMINY CRICKET!!!! HUGS. Lookin' GOOD! xoxo

Got this from Ike Saben (ret LASD) .... omg.

"The European Union (EU) has granted a permit to an Austrian brewery to officially use the controversial name of their beer: Fucking Hell."
It is a fully legitimate permit. "Hell" in German means 'light' and the beer is produced in the town of Fucking. 

... and yes, there really is a town called Fucking.
Also, I looked up "hell" in German...
leicht             light, easy, lightweight, simple, slight, mild

licht               light, bright, thin, sparse

hell                light, bright, pale, clear, fair, high

All of this apparently has angered the population of Fucking! Or should I say, it's angered the whole Fucking population!

Historically this date...
1945 – World War II: Off the coast of Okinawa, the aircraft carrier USS Bunker Hill is hit by two kamikazes, killing 346 of its crew. Although badly damaged, the ship is able to return to the U.S. under its own power.

1949 – Siam officially changes its name to Thailand for the second time. The name had been in use since 1939 but was reverted in 1945.

1987 – In Baltimore, Maryland, the first heart–lung transplant takes place. The surgery is performed by Dr. Bruce Reitz of the Stanford University School of Medicine.

1996 – The 1996 Mount Everest disaster: on a single day eight people die during summit attempts on Mount Everest.

And births this date include....
1811Chang and Eng Bunker, Thai-American conjoined twins (d. 1874) Because they were Thai (formerly Siam) ergo the name Siamese Twins! Interesting story...

1911 – Phil Silvers, American actor and comedian (d. 1985)

1912Foster Brooks, American actor and comedian (d. 2001)

1920Denver Pyle, American actor (d. 1997)

1935 – Doug McClure, American actor (d. 1995)
....would you believe, smoking killed him! Geeze people. Stop smoking!  It kills. AND you smell bad!

I really wanted to cook some shrimp yesterday, but in the market I could only find shrimp from Thailand and Viet Nam. NO THANKS! They grow them in ponds with human excrement. UGH. I want shrimp caught off the southern coast of the good old US of A ! 

So, I made a quesadilla with American and provolone.

Yesterday Jason was here finishing up the weed-eating. I took the Maggs and Dude on a ride down to Jason's folks to pay him... then the pups posed ... with Knotty...

.... for my friends.... who asked for a Maggie fix! xo

Picked up Bruiser from the vets. He had his ear flushed again and an antibiotic put in the ear canal. They had to sedate him for this so when I picked him up at 5 he still wasn't out of it completely. A total nut case, running from one end of the house to the other. He finally settled down about 9pm.

All I know. Tucker's team will be playing today but he and family will be in Glendale Oregon for one of Tucker's pal's birthday party. I will work in the yard. Will take the sprayer down to Dave first thing so he can figure out why the danged thing won't run! Again.

Happy Saturday. Nuff said. Ciao.

International Migratory Bird Day celebrates the incredible journey that migratory birds take each year. They travel thousands of miles between breeding grounds in North America, and their winter homes in Central and South America. Organizers say this is a day to both support, and to increase awareness of conservation efforts in support of migratory birds. They also suggest a field trip into a woods to look for and enjoy migrating birds.
