    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

    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

    TOTD: Gator, definately Gator.
