New Computer ~ Clouds ~ Why Barns Are Red ~ Rufus Harper ~ Gar Austin ~ Parasites ~ Newborn Fawn ~ Menu Secrets

Good 52º cloudy morning. Rain was predicted but I doubt if we will see any.
Breakfast was low fat cottage cheese topped with fruit (cantaloupe, pineapple, strawberries, grapes, blueberries, raspberries)

Yesterday I did more stuff with the new computer, installing all the programs I like... American Greeting Card Factory, Malwarebytes, Dynamic Auto Painter, Smilebox, Hallmark Card Studio, Webshots, AOL, Adobe Photoshop, and a couple others. Thanks for some expert advice from my son Brian, I solved the problem of too small icons and text. Now I can see the text!!!
The clouds started gathering early... pretty!

3pm we had some heavy weight clouds:

Stayed comfy all day and never got above 77º!
Also, thanks to Ron Weiseberger (LASD ret) I found this out..

Two birthdays today..... Jim Harper's pup Rufus is 10 years old. HAPPY BIRTHDAY RUFIE!

And Gar Austin (LASD ret) is celebrating. HAPPY BIRTHDAY GAR!!!

You have to watch this. These men found a newborn fawn in the middle of the road. Good ending!!! 2 minutes...

Dinner was some pork/jalapeño sausage, cheese ravioli, veggies, and sun dried tomato Alfredo. Photos tomorrow.

Speaking of food, here is a secret menu item from Burger King... basically a heart attack on a bun. Burger King doesn't slack on this bad boy, it comes stacked with 4 meat patties, 4 cheese slices, bacon (obviously), and BK's special sauce. Make sure you grab a handful of napkins after ordering the Suicide Burger!

... And a secret menu item from Taco Bell... this sounds interesting,  "The Hulk" consists of a 5-layer burrito that comes with guacamolé instead of nacho cheese. Oh, and make sure you go out of your way to drive to the "good" Taco Bell. That way you get the fresh guacamolé and not last night's brown leftovers.

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

National Iced Tea Day

With the official start of summer just a few days away. The timing is perfect for National Iced Tea Day.
Chances are, it is already hot in your area. Today may serve as a good reminder to make and enjoy your first (of many) Iced Tea drink of the season. Have it plain, add a little lemon, or sweeten it with sugar. Iced Tea is certainly a favorite summer cooler of millions of Americans. And best of all, tea is good for your health!
It takes no imagination to decide how to enjoy this great day: Grab an Iced Tea and head out to the hammock strung under a shady tree.

*I remember visiting the South with my parents when I was about 10 years old. The Southerners drink "sweet tea" which is SUPER sugary iced tea. ICK. I couldn't drink it. I like mine with lemon, not sugar!!
