Here is the nut Bruiser watching a video of cats on Youtube sitting on my desk...

The little black and white feral cat is getting less scared of me. I call him "BC" for 'black cat'! I have put food and water in the bed of my golf cart and yesterday he actually came up while I was outside and 'mewed' at me! I came inside and took his picture through the slider door...

National Weatherman's Day
National Weatherman's Day honors weathermen, and woman who work hard to accurately predict the often fickle weather. Despite major technological advances and supercomputers, forecasting the weather is still a tricky, and ever changing business.
Knowing the weather is important in so many ways. It affect how we dress, where we go, and even if we go. Space launches are made or delayed depending upon the weather. And, knowing the weather can save lives. The most obvious example is knowing when and where hurricanes or tornados may hit.
According to the Air Force News, Weatherman's Day "commemorates the birth of John Jeffries, one of America's first weathermen". Jeffries was born on Feb 5, 1744. He kept weather records from 1774 to1816.
