More Summer Decoration


  1. Bernie & Jane and their new Summer House are First!

  2. Ah, I just saw some Perseid meteors speed across between myself and Casseopia. It has begun. Exhilarating!

  3. 91F, humidity 55%, dew point 71
    "Feels like 97F." Heh.
    {An ice cream without guilt day!}

    Maple Ginger Lemonade:
    Squeeze the juice from one lemon
    Add an equal amount of real Maple Syrup (the darker the better)
    Add 1/4 teaspoon Ginger
    Shake these together.
    Add 12oz cold spring water
    Shake or stir.
    Enjoy iced!

  4. Okay, now for my Maxine moment. I have a "No Soliciting" sign on my door. My door mat says "Go Away". I have a ceramic dog holding a sign in its mouth that also says "Go Away". And yet people trying to sell stuff STILL bang on my door. How do they not get the message?

    1. A. All no soliciting signs apply to other people, not me.
      B. If I don't read it, it's not there.
      Or the ever popular C. Who gives a shit what you want? I'm here to harass you, and that's what I'm going to do!

    2. That sounds about right. The last guy who was pushing his religion came to my door. I opened the door, said, "No", in a disgusted tone of voice and shut the door again.

    3. He's probably praying for your soul to be saved. Not that doing so will prevent him from bothering somebody else.

      I always wonder. Do door to door missionaries and such actually make converts? I mean, somehow it doesn't really strike me as the same as St. Paul preaching in market squares and so forth.

    4. Let's ask that question a different way: Does knocking on doors asking people to vote for Howard or Bernie change anybody's vote?

  5. Replies
    1. "All I have to do is stop funding the Republican Party," the billionaire said.

      Uh, yeah. You just keep thinking that, Donald.

  6. Cat, yes. Mormons are very practical people, if it didn't work, they'd quit.
