The spigot has been turned on, and it doesn’t look like it’s gonna turn off anytime soon. I’m blogging outside at the Tiki Bar tonight, the weather is perfect – outside temp is 80, the pool is 84 – and the world seems still. A perfect time to catch up on a couple of things:

Best wishes and prayers go out to Red Sox color analyst Jerry “The Remdawg” Remy, currently recuperating from cancer surgery last fall. Can’t wait ’til he’s back in the broadcast booth.

Anyone who harbored suspicions about the Red Sox Manny Ramirez of 2007 and pre-August 2008 vs. the Dodger Manny of post-August 2008 shouldn’t be surprised about this. You get as big as Manny is/was, you’ll do whatever it takes to keep your edge. In this case he got caught and now deserves to pay the price.

Me, I always thought the Tunguska explosion was caused by a comet. (Hat tip: Instapundit)

I have to laugh when I hear Democrats and Democrat wannabes offer suggestions to the GOP to moderate its traditional stands on smaller government, lower taxes, and increased personal responsibility. Lemme think: did the Democrats moderate their own stands on their traditional issues (larger governmental control and spending, higher taxes, etc.) in the last election? That’s what I thought…

Has their ever been a more dishonest, partisan Speaker of the House than Nancy Pelosi? A less reprehensible and vile human being in the center stage of national politics I don’t recall ever seeing in my life. She’s not just an embarrassment but a living, breathing condemnation of the entire American political system.

Meghan McCain, your fifteen minutes are up.

200,000 people left homeless as a result of flooding in Brazil. The mind boggles at the scope of devastation this weather event has caused. Please consider a contribution to help out.

See y’all next week from the Eastern Daylight Time zone….

  1. Dude…it’s gonna be 104 in Gilbert today. No wonder you blog at night at the Tiki Bar…daytime blogging would turn you and your laptop into goo.
    Woke up to the creek coming out of it’s bank…lots of rain overnight and more tonight, so I will have a river to look at in the morning. Hoping to plant my banana trees this weekend and get flowers into the gardens. I have a pineapple growing this spring…my second since I have lived here. What a treat!! By Aug it will be ripe and delicious. The first one was amazing and so sweet. Have a great weekend blogging in the moonlight.

  2. Thanks Jana – is that pineapple from the plant we gave you when we left KY? The one you said would never grow? 🙂
