Good 39º clear gonna be a sunny day morning. Typical of this crazy place... heat on in the morning and ac in the afternoon. Well, not quite yet. It was nice with all the doors open yesterday afternoon!

Yes, here we are again... 4-17 .... California Penal Code section for "brandishing a firearm in a rude or threatening manner" and doing so is a misdemeanor punishable by imprisonment in a county jail for not less than 30
days. And if it occurs in a public place a fine of $1000 and/or jail is mandated. If this occurs on the grounds of a day care center for children under 18 years old then the jail time increases to no less than 3 months. If this occurs in the presence of a police officer jail in county for no less than 9 months not to exceed 1 year or in state prison for 16 months or 3 years.
Or.......................... it's a radio code in CA for "man with a gun". Got it? Good. 
Yesterday morning a few deer were in the pasture, and Bruiser was keeping an eye on them!

National Cheeseball Day

National Cheeseball Day is a day to stuff yourself with cheeseballs. But wait!!! What kind of cheeseball are we talking about? There's the light and airy, puffy cheeseball that you munch on for a snack by the dozens. There is also the cheeseball, often decorated with nuts, that sits on a party tray until spread on a cracker. Is this a celebration derived from the snack industry, or the dairy industry?  
When it comes to the cheeseball snack, we are certain that you can't eat just one. Not even a handful. Cheeseballs are addicting. Place a bowl of cheeseballs on the counter, and watch them disappear right before your eyes. Toddlers and young kids are Cheeseball hounds. So are teenagers and adults. In other words, everyone lives cheeseballs.
The cheeseballs of holiday trays is equally loved. Strangely, it is wildly popular around the holidays and hard to find other times of year.
Celebrate today with cheeseballs (both kinds). Serve them after dinner during your favorite Television show, or whenever its convenient.
