P1070479L. to R.

  • Dual threat–blueberry/cherry mashup. I know nothing about the missing pie(ce).
  • Traditional canned pumpkin–if you’re into that sort of thing. I’m not.
  • Pumpkin from scratch. It looks like a piece would keep you alive for a week and clean your colon.
  • Cherry. This keeps the wife happy.
  • Coconut cream. I put a spell on you. Because you’re mine.
 
Hope you all have a great Thanksgiving.

Just killing time until Geoff posts something important.

Yesterday we had the worst hailstorm in the past 12 years, it pretty much flattened the garden. All the leaves were blasted off the plants, exposing the zucchini, cucumbers, pumpkins and squash.

The pumpkins aren’t ripe yet, they are usually harvested around Halloween, (go figure). We can eat the zucchini and feed the rest to the livestock, so not a total loss.

Now for the Smut. It’s Safe For Work.

I’m just beating Michael to the punch.

It’s the “Five People playing One Guitar” group… with a twist.

Went to the Western Idaho Fair. Saw Foreigner and The Guess Who. They were awesome.
I was worried that the new Lead Singers would not be as good as the original guys. Wrong on both counts, in fact I liked the new Guess Who singer more than the original guy.

Texas Wins Another Case Against Dept. of Commerce June 5, 2013

I met Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott last year at a luncheon, and had a chance to speak with him a bit.  He was just celebrating a successful case filed against the EPA.  I asked him “what is it that you spend most of your time on?”  and he answered “suing the Federal government.”

Loved that answer.  Here’s another one, successfully pushing back a stupid emergency ruling that arbitrarily shortened the red snapper fishing season in Federal waters off the coast of Texas.

Abbott understands federal bureacracies abuse their power constantly, and doesn’t back down from a fight.  The case he was celebrating was a ruling in the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals that the EPA had improperly rejected the state’s “Flexible Permitting Program” regarding the establishment of controls over permits for electricity generation plants.  Texas wanted to keep control of permitting in our hands and not the EPA’s.  The EPA’s intention was to take it over and start denying applications.  It’s what they do.

Here’s a snippy NPR article about the outcome of that case.  Forget the typical NPR bullshit, look at the photograph of Greg Abbott in the article.

Greg Abbott is wheelchair bound.  Nice photo, isn’t it?

Incidentally, Texas was thrown into the provisions of the Cross-State Air Pollution Rule based on a model that showed a monitor located across the street from a steel mill, shows a theoretical reading that is slightly above attainment.

A monitor in Illinois.

Let’s be very clear about the facts.  The last-minute inclusion of Texas in the sulfur dioxide portion of the rule is based on modeling that says an Illinois monitor, located across the street from a steel mill, shows a theoretical reading that is slightly above attainment.  Actual data from 2009 forward shows that this monitor is meeting the federal air quality standards today.  And even if the feds relied on their own computer simulated modeling predictions, that monitor would be in attainment in 2014 without any reductions from CSAPR.  So does Texas’ tenuous link to this monitor justify the state’s inclusion in CSAPR? No.

He’ll run for governor soon.  I’ll support him.

We were so close to the best Thanksgiving in at least 4 years.

I went to Africa for a couple of months in the late 80s. I flew into Nairobi late at night and took a cab to a hotel that had been recommended by a friend. The room looked like you would imagine a low-end hotel in Nairobi would look–I don’t know, maybe you can imagine it, I don’t think I really could before seeing it. I would describe it as 1940s prison cell chic. I had packed a sheet and rolled up in it and stared at the ceiling while listening to the drunks in the alley below my window fight and piss. It was a long night. Two months later, when I was preparing to leave the continent, I returned to the same hotel for my last night before flying home. I was at ease and slept well. The hotel hadn’t changed, but my perspective on the necessities for comfort had.

So, what’s all this about? I’m guessing if the lady in this story ever finds a finger in her chili she will simply set it aside and finish her meal.
