Good morning!

A devastating ecological disaster is overtaking the Gulf Coast area. Some criticism is being aimed at the O administration for its slow response, but ultimately it'll be the oil and energy industry, and us, the consumers, which will bear the weight of government control to come, I fear.

Rahm Emmanuel's rule to never waste a good crisis comes to mind once again.

Back in the 80’s I had a streak of 8 straight correct winners including that long shot, by simply watching the way they walked on their way to the gate. Then someone told me I should wager money on it. So the next derby - off I went to the betters cage and I haven’t picked a winner since.

I think I’m sticking with Make Music for Me. Post position 9. The track will be a bit wet today. ... ... Okay, they’re probably going to run in a pouring rain.

Thanks for the start, Molly.

Good morning everyone.

Today we plant 10 blueberry bushes. The holes are dug and ready to go.

Your luck will change again!

With the track conditions likely to be so poor, I'll just be happy if everyone finishes....safely

This next week, the plan is to put the bird netting over ours. Otherwise, we won’t get to pick the berries.

When we moved here we had many wild blueberry bushes. I could never beat the birds.

These new bushes will have netting.

Good morning, Geee.

Blueberry bushes are planted and I didn't lift a finger. Greg had them done by the time I finished my second cup of coffee.

GOOD MORNING KIND LADY, so far a light wind this A.M. here but expected ro pick up big time shortly bad news for the oil spill.

Your breakfast looks wonderful but me, one each bowl of grits. Not only do we use grits for breakfast but we also make grit topping for cake, grit dip for dips. grit sauce for pasta, to mention a few usage of this fruit, in fact, thinking of composeing a cook book with grits. A person here has never found a grit ge does not like.

Not much wind here now, but coming soon, blowing that oil on our beeches.

Kids gone camping with the boys so I a batching it, hate hate that cause I go wild on eating what ever I want. I don’t need this and thinking about charging crulity to PawPaw charges.

Toby

Good Morning everyone. It’s soggy and chilly out there this morning. The weather really doesn’t matter, as I need to keep my nose to the grindstone with paper work.

Last night on FB, I read several stories saying the Oil Rigs were attacked by the North Koreans,, and the Feds have ordered a total news black out. There was talk of SWAT teams guarding the remaining rigs. But there was no mention of black helicopters. ;-)

With the Second rig leaking, I’ve thrown coincidence out the window. These rigs survived how many hurricanes? I want to know WHERE the Earth First and ELF (Earth Liberation Front) people were every minute of the day for the week prior to each leak.

Wishing everyone a pleasant day!

Seeing this remind me of the days I attended police schools at the University of Louisville, way back when, the Derby ran when there and I bet on Native Dancer, he won but the horse did someting wrong so later the race was disqualifted for him so the bookie told me, the bigges thing I had ever seen anything like this were the mules running for the feed on cousins far.

Now you’ve got HIM trained right :) Haven’t heard anything from Mozie for about 4 weeks. There were bad storms and one tornado touchdown around that area last night. The tornado was not in Green Bay but the weather was bad in that area. Was concerned.

Good morning!

It's horse racing and big hat day today!

Now for the weather report for these NC parts: 85 degrees today and 90 degrees hot for tomorrow!

Two weeks after the oil spill, it is reported that thewon will visit the scene of the crime "sometime in the next 48 hours".

Everything is a crisis with Jug Ear’s administration. Except the harm he’s doing to the country and that’s progress. Pfft.

All of us at least considered, if not suspected this. I honestly haven't read anything about the cause, or what's being purported as the cause.

I'll have to try and find some of those stories on FB.

Strange, not much news here this morning with the oil spill. reckon the ‘officials’ are accessing, heck, just look south and say OH (DLRP)!

SIL when he gets back from camping is going to finish the fence about the back yard and pool then put a similar one around my porch on my shack with a gate and handrail (hurts my feeling but I need it every once in a while), Now I am fighting with the animals whern feeding, chickens try to eat horse food with their corn, horses eats corn, dog food,
horse food, scraps, you name it. Horses bigger than dogs, bigger than chickens so, goes life on my ‘planttion’.

Years ago, I had some mighty strange animal pets....although I had no chickens, the cats would come to eat when I called "chicky, chicky".

My 2 dogs would come to eat when I called "kitty, kitty". LOL
