Food Storage ~ Dude & Trees Inc ~ Wind ~ Dinner ~ Bruiser ~ A Movie ~ El Cajon Fire


Good 50º clear sunny morning. Looks like we are in for more hot weather.. probably up to three digits!

Here is another food storage idea....
A container of cottage cheese or sour cream will last twice as long if you put it upside down in your fridge. It creates a vacuum and inhibits the growth of bacteria that spoils food.

Yesterday about 8:30am I loaded Dude into my truck, opened up the back window

as he likes to sniff everything, and we headed into town. At the bottom of our driveway by the road was the Trees Inc crew on Dave and PJ's property taking down some trees....

The tree next to our driveway was marked so I asked them why.... The tree is a White Ash and they said it was so tall and interfering with the power lines and it needed to be taken down before it fell down as it was dead up at the top and the trunk showed signs of "ill health"!

I'll check down there to day and see what they did.

Yesterday afternoon about 1:30 it got quite windy... The temp went from 83º and 9% humidity at 1:30 to 87º and 5% humidity at 2pm.

Dinner was a can of Progresso Lite Chicken & Dumplin soup! Tummy needed to relax. Ahhh..... So, in my chair with Bruiser on my lap... first a bath then a nap:

... and a fun Hallmark movie... A Royal Christmas.
I know, Christmas in July.. it will be on again. Jane Seymour plays a total awful nasty person!

Stephen Hagan, Lacey Chabert, and Jane..
Of course the one thing I like about Hallmark movies is always a good ending!

The horrible fire on the Cajon Pass between San Bernardino and Las Vegas is still going. So many vehicles lost as it crossed the I-15... 

All I know. Nuff said. Happy Saturday. Ciao.

Good morning. Woke up to rain this morning. More thunder than rain. Here's a prayer the Cajon pass gets a good drenching.

I've always been fond of Richard Branson's story. No limits and good manners. Treats his staff as treasured family. No demarcation from his private and public life.

Babs- I imagine they truly love each other. She may see him as her equal- he may be the one person on earth she can relax with- which might make all the difference in how she treats her husband.

Some times, "a little" rain isn't even worth it! Hope they got that fire out. So sad all those cars and trucks destroyed. Insurance companies are not going to be happy!
