Hot ~ No Comments ~ Travis ~ Smoking ~ ODF ~ Chicken/Corn ~ Piña Colada

Good 57º gonna be hot again morning. I had 98.7º on my thermometer but PJ said it was 100º on her patio.

Wow, well yesterday was a record day... not ONE comment on my blog. Hmmmmmm.......     :o(


Randy Travis has been admitted to a hospital in Texas in critical condition. A heart problem, may be brought on by a virus, heart muscle is inflamed. May need heart transplant surgery. Waiting for updates.

Ok, I continue my campaign to get friends and family to quit smoking. It's killing you!   Cigarette smoking causes about 1 in every 5 deaths in the United States each year. It's the main preventable cause of death and illness in the United States.
Smoking harms nearly every organ in the body, including the heart, blood vessels, lungs, eyes, mouth, reproductive organs, bones, bladder, and digestive organs. On top of that, why do you want to smell like an ashtray?????? ICK.


PICTURE of the day...
How about this scoot, guys?? A 14 cylinder radial engine. WOW!

Yesterday we were out early, 8:30 (early for me!) and Dude had his run then I mowed the grass, front and back, fixed a sprinkler, watered, filled water tubs for the wild critters... I have 3. The gray squirrels, deer, wild turkeys, and a variety of birds partake of the water. Came in too cool off. Was 81º by 10am. Stayed in the rest of the day except for moving the sprinklers around the yard and running to town to mail a card at the PO. At 2pm it was 97º.


Oregon Fire Statistics:
January 1, 2013, through today, July 9, 2013*
Lightning-caused fires: 51 fires burned 19 acres
Human-caused fires: 268 fires burned 987 acres
Total: 319 fires burned 1006 acres

ODF personnel are currently fighting fires in Alaska and Colorado. The Oregon Department of Forestry and its sister agencies in the other western states routinely share firefighting resources as needed. The arrangement is reciprocal: If ODF needs outside help on fires in Oregon, its partner agencies will provide personnel and equipment when possible.

All the fires in our area are under control now.
