Cities on Flame.....

Thanks for everyone who called and asked if the Hard Place was ok out here in la-la land. Yes we are - and we generally are all the time when fire season comes, although we had one close by for the second time in four years. Not to go into any geographical specifics but there just shouldn't be any fire west of the 405 freeway. Thankfully it was vanquished rather quickly - and like last time I was out of town anyway.

This was the PV fire. The Rockette said she could see the glow over the hill from the house. Obviously these guys had a better/closer/more inconvenient view.

And then here it is after it was put out. Drove by it yesterday. A little scorched but pristine as ususal. And thank you God for the rainbow.

Here's to our firefighters who do a difficult job very well every day.

Ha, Ha, Ha- Ha, Ha - Ha, Ha, Ha

Obama has now had several chances to explain his dreaded health care reform bill - you know, the one he wanted Congress to pass weeks ago. He had a press conference, where he was supposed to clear things up but only made new commenting on a local police story. Then he had his own Town Hall meeting in Portsmouth, NH in the aftermath of his congressional lackies not even being able to complete sentences in their own town halls - and what did we see? Plants, little girls with big questions who are daughters of Obama campaigners who don't even live in New hmpshire, other obvious selected questioners - but what was even worse - the President STILL cannot explain his plan - and then continues to lie about 1) single payer issues, 2) end of life issues, 3) who really endorses it and 4) then makes a major gaffe essentially comparing his health care plan to the post office. So what does that give you as our President?
The Joker.
