Man, this month has flown by.
RAIN we had over the last 72 hours as well, was it not?
After seeing some of the flooding in and around the city, the word "deluge" came to mind, although we (down here) didn't really see THAT much rain. Nice and dry here.
Still, it is making garden things grow.
Our Hooiserland weather today will be a bit on the partly cloudy side, but with a lot more "seasonal" temps, reaching a high in the mid-to-upper 80s today. With all that humidity hanging about, it will feel like it's in the 90s. Lows tonight only dropping to around 70.
Now, with that over and done with, go grab your cup of morning pleasure as we see what's been going on everywhere else...
|Check the oil, too?|
Dinner was Chinese food...and damn good (still have leftovers, too)
Didn't bother with all those candles (just a few)...didn't want the FWFD to have to roll down here for a fire-related violation...plus it would have set off the detectors HERE.
*** Next up, the NEW Doctor Who was wonderfully brilliant, and the lead-up to the new season was befitting any fan of the series.
I think the BBC has struck gold once again...not bad to show for FIFTY plus years, is it?
*** And, just in case you thought for a moment that crime in Fort Wayne has taken a week off, we had an armed robbery back out (again) at Chapel Oaks Apts.
Here's the story link:
|Big surprise, isn't it?|
What did I say about problems in the BLACK community? More black-on-black crime. Good thing the suspects weren't found there (by police) and tried to assault an officer...
Coulda been another Ferguson, hmm? They're all good people,. remember that.
*** Speaking of which - There was an article (from the AP) about the impending funeral for Michael Brown out in Ferguson, MO, and if this doesn't "stir the pot" of race-baiting, I don't know what does. Here's the link to the story:
|They COULD try THIS.|
Time after time, we hear about rappers being shot or killed, lewd language, a misogynistic attitude towards women, and the love of violence and money.
Yeah, that sounds SO damn gentle to me, too.
Here's hoping this inflammatory story doesn't ignite another round of protests, rioting and such...the black community has ENOUGH problems when it comes to finding ways to destroy ITSELF...right?
*** Last back to the memory banks...today also marks the EIGHTH anniversary of this blog...and bless those 28 followers I still have.
Didn't think I had that much to say...LOL.
|Another reason...for CAKE.|
Granted, this is a small blog, with a small band of followers, but it's true to the basis for which it was created.
I see other blogs grow in the number of people following them, and that's fine. Good for them.
I didn't create this blog to be a national sensation...Lord knows that much....heh.
I just provide the facts, the truth, and how all of life's puzzle pieces can often come together to form the mosaics of humankind.
And in that, I think I did all right so far.
Every day is a new beginning, someone once said, and to that end, this blog will continue until I can no longer write it.
Hopefully, by then, there will be others who are more than willing to take up the mantle and keep the faith, tell the truth, and get pissed off enough to speak plain and provide others with a voice.
Yeah, that sounds about right. Here's to another year under the belt.
Stay SAFE out there, America.
