August.....Hot and full of rage

I was in Florida in August of 2004 for the 4 hurricanes.
Please, evacuate if you are told to do so. It is not worth the risk to stay with your stuff!

Even mighty oaks can fall....
(Charlie, you sure did make a mess. I am very thankful that all my family & friends were not hurt...just a little rattled).

Faked Moon Landing?

It looks like a great episode tonight of MYTHBUSTERS
(check out the sneak preview)
NASA Moon Landing

On this episode of MythBusters, the team tackles the tallest tale of all in Moon Landing Hoax Hour. Did NASA pull off the greatest cover-up in human history?

I have read several of the websites devoted to this subject. They make some valid points...But, since I grew up in that decade...Watching the ONE television in the home, two to three channels, pre-dish -rabbit eared antennae...I watched that landing live! Nasa would not trick me..or would they???

Anyway, the show looks interesting....I will not give up my warm childhood cocoon where I keep my hulla hoop, records, autograph book, teen magazines, go-go boots world that easily.

Entrecard Drops...and Tool Bar

Wow...I run out of cards to drop before I am through.
I don't know how everyone drops (I am new to it). I go through my EC inbox for cards that I have not dropped on, make sure my favorites have not been forgotten and I still see that 300 per day way too soon.

It is great to get up in the morning and have an advert waiting for log into your dashboard and then see that they have cancelled it before you even see it. I give the person at least a day or two to approve my ads. Oh well...I have to sleep some time. I am not on the computer at night since I am on it all day.

So, I apologize to anyone who I did not return their drops...It does not mean I did not want to.....I simply just ran out of drops for the day....

Post Update:
Entre Tool Bar (for Firefox)
If you have not tried it it HERE.
It works great for loading all of your favorites in tabs and they are ready in a jif to drop and read!

Inside the Actors Studio

I am watching Inside the Actors Studio with Elton John on Bravo....I mean Sir Elton John.  The show is so much better when they do not cut them down from the original 2 hours.   He brings back so many memories of growing up in the 70's,  music seemed to be such a large part of it.   Before the movie music...Elton and Bernie Taupin reached in and touched your soul.    I don't think I will ever forget the first time I heard "Your Song" on the radio (even if it was only a tiny little am radio,  it cascaded out of it and straight through me)......Thank you for such rich memories!

We need more rain and cool breezes!

I found this little guy in the water dish (no wonder I have to refill the dish of water all of the time).

It looks like it is hot everywhere else in the US, not just in Texas.

I really feel for the people without air conditioners and good insulation in their homes.
