Good morning, folks. We had our first sorta-monsoon storm here last night. I qualified it with a "sorta" because we got lots of wind, glorious Arizona lightning, thunder, but no rain. That's the desert for ya'. I loved it anyway.

On the agenda for today is a trip to IKEA in the afternoon and then over to my sister's house to watch Jurassic Park on their brand new HD big-screen TV. They wanted to do their part to stimulate the economy, I guess. We may also see fireworks in the evening if the boys are up for it.

TOTD: Last night, I watched a movie called Untraceable. Overall, the movie was good except I feel robbed of a decent ending.

Anyway, it's about an FBI agent who monitors and stops "cybercrimes." To track down a psycho killer who is streaming his grisly crimes live on the internet, they poured through thousands of message board posts, chat rooms, you name it, for clues.

Suppose an FBI agent is pouring through this particular board right now. Which poster would he suspect is really a psychotic killer and why?

My guess would be gator. He owns lots of guns, can be very irrational in his thinking, and he lives in Florida. Three strikes against you, darling. :p

God Bless the USA

If tomorrow all the things were gone Iíd worked for all my life,
And I had to start again with just my children and my wife.
Iíd thank my lucky stars to be living here today,
ĎCause the flag still stands for freedom and they canít take that away.

And Iím proud to be an American where at least I know Iím free.
And I wonít forget the men who died, who gave that right to me.
And Iíd gladly stand up next to you and defend her still today.
ĎCause there ainít no doubt I love this land God bless the U.S.A.

From the lakes of Minnesota, to the hills of Tennessee,
across the plains of Texas, from sea to shining sea,

From Detroit down to Houston and New York to LA,
Well, thereís pride in every American heart,
and itís time to stand and say:

Iím proud to be an American where at least I know Iím free.
And I wonít forget the men who died, who gave that right to me.
And Iíd gladly stand up next to you and defend her still today.
ĎCause there ainít no doubt I love this land God bless the U.S.A.

Happy Birthday America and many,many more to come !

Freedom isn't free. Enjoy yours this Fourth of July and pray for those who serve, have been wounded or died to pay for it.

Happy Independence Day everybody!

I just came in from setting out the flags and doing a little weeding. Mr. Snaps has gone off to upgrade a fountain pump (or something like that - I wasn't listening). I'm going to clean the house and listen to America on XM before people come over this afternoon.

TOTD: Gator is a good choice but I'm betting asdf would trip all the psycho flags of real professionals. :D

Greyt posting there LL. The DUmmies will self implode if they read that till the end. :D

Not a bad day here so far. Clouds are breaking up and it should be a nice day
for me to chop up the tree limb!

Our liberal rag paper here just had to run a piece on how the fireworks many of us
will be watching tonight are filled with toxic stuff and...CARBON!!!!!:eek:
To the LA Times for writting it: Fuck You Assholes. :D

TOTD: Who would be CU's killer? Has to be Ralph, no one would ever suspect him....

I heard a great song on the radio about the flag this morning. I'm gonna see if I can find it. It came on the heels of America the Beautiful...God I love that song!

TOTD: I think it's Jen. It's always the quiet, nice neighbor types.

Since fireworks are used on this day, I'd thought it'd be a good idea to post a safety video in the use of fireworks...enjoy

I'm watching a marathon, too - Dave Ramsey, on Fox Business, and basking in self-congratulation. We haven't had credit card debt or car payments in several years, we're at the 15% retirement funding level, and now we're focusing with what he calls "gazelle-like intensity" on paying off the mortgage.

Oh, and TOTD: I'd have to say Gator too, after that post of his where he said blacks should be grateful for slavery since it got them to this country. :rolleyes:

Yea, you are right. It is much better to be a Black person living in the Sudan nowadays than to be a Black person living in Daytona Beach, Florida. I apologize for being so stupid.

Going on the table today...

Grilled brats dumped into the slow cooker with beer and onions.

Huge shrimp that have been marinating since yesterday cooked on grill skewers.

Adobo pork steaks.

Corn on the cob.

Salad.

Baked Southwest style beans.

A pie to be determined later. (Probably go with apple to celebrate Ma, country, ect..)

TOTD

Nice attempt at misdirection SR!!!

Everyone knows that the police have been looking into missing Obama and Hillary canvassers in your area for a while now.
AND your dogs are SUSPICIOUSLY well fed what with this gawd awful Bush resession crushing us like bugs!!!

Sure Ralph may have killed a hooker here and there, but I think everyone knows who CU's tag team of serial killers REALLY is!

TOTD: I think it's Jen. It's always the quiet, nice neighbor types.+1 on that.

As the tenth body gets pulled from her freezer I can almost hear the neighbors saying..."I don't understand it. She was always so quiet and kept to herself."

It's certainly not the face I made when I first read that remark of his. The idea that it does not matter how they got here as long as they're lucky enough to be here now is.... well, worthy of him. I'll leave it at that.

and stop picking on Ralph, you know he's more likely to bail the hookers out of jail than kill them
