"On June 14, SpaceX's Grasshopper
flew 325 m (1066 feet)--higher than Manhattan's Chrysler
Building--before smoothly landing back on the pad. For the first time in
this test, Grasshopper made use of its full navigation sensor suite
with the F9-R closed loop control flight algorithms to accomplish a
precision landing. Most rockets are equipped with sensors to determine
position, but these sensors are generally not accurate enough to
accomplish the type of precision landing necessary with Grasshopper."
Yes we have been out this week with birding for Drew and wildflower for myself. I hope everyone will enjoy the pictures. Drew is off work this week so there will be a lot more pictures to share with all of you.
This is a Canada Thistle it was taken at Horicon National Wildlife Refuge. We found these special for Daddy Orb's because he had mentioned something with my other post. So I looked it up and went out looking for this one for him. The top and bottom are the same flower.
These are Tulips the picture was taken at Chiwaukee Prairie Reserve. I could not believe I found these flowers in the field.
This is Garlic Mustard the picture was taken at Colonial Park in Racine.
This is a Wood Rose the picture was taken at Richard Bong State Recreational Area . I just thought this flower was so pretty.
Hello, my roamin’ candles!How are you?Aside from the rain,
recent weather has been much to my liking.It’s the cool nights that make it nice.Temperatures in the 80’s are fine by day, but the evenings are best chilled
down.Why can’t it just stay that
way?I’d pay for good weather.Perhaps weather control will be a growth
industry in the coming century.
Tomorrow, of course, is the biggest party day of the year in
Racine: the 4th of
July.For one day, an entire city goes
nuts.Bars on the parade route open
early and keep pouring until well after the fireworks end.The parade is the highlight of the day.As in previous years, I’m not sure if I’m
going to the parade or not.Probably
not.Of course, like every year, Junior
will attend.And like every year, he
will watch girls much more than the parade.Those hormones go crazy sometimes.
Maybe we’ll set up the grill and make some brats and burgers
in the afternoon.Or maybe someone else will. (Free food for whoever wants to
come over and cook for us on the 4th.)I know that I won’t be attending the
fireworks.They’re beautiful, but the
crowds keep me away.If I can see them
from a rooftop or somewhere, fine.I
won’t be in the thronging masses on and near North
Beach.That’s too much sweaty humanity for me.
As in previous years, I’d like to salute and thank the Law
Enforcement Officers and others who work tirelessly on the 4th to
keep the holiday safe.God bless you
Mr. Mayor Dickert is number 6 in the parade lineup.He’s smart to get it over with before the
crowd gets too liquored up.
Now that kringle has been named Wisconsin’s
Official Pastry, I feel obligated to help spread the good news.Therefore, each of my clients today will
receive a complimentary kringle.I know
that most Racinians have a favorite bakery and flavor when it comes to kringle.Mine are O & H Bakery and pecan kringle,
but I wouldn’t turn down a slice of any flavor from the competition.It’s all good.Eat your favorite kringle proudly.On Wisconsin!
should have an Official Psychic.I’d
consider the position if the perks were right.I have to get some sort of affordable health insurance for Junior and
myself.A state job would have the
benefits I need.Who do I have to
hypnotize to get this ball rolling?Which
palms need reading and which need greasing?I know what to kiss, and when.
Kisses and hugs to you, my dear readers.Thank you for making my blog a part of your
day.Linger as long as you’d like.Things move slowly, but surely, at Dear Madame Zoltar.

hunting, so he approached his assistant.
am goin' huntin' tomorrow and don't want to close the
clinic. I want you to take care of the clinic and take care
of all my patients."
"Yes, sir!" answers Ole.
The doctor goes hunting and returns the following
day and asks: "So, Ole, How was your day?"
Ole told him that he took care of three
patients. "The first one had a headache so I gave him TYLENOL."
"Bravo, mate, and the second one?" Asks the
"The second one had stomach burning and I gave him MAALOX,
sir," says Ole.
"Bravo, bravo! You're good at this and what about the third
one?" asks the Doctor.
"Sir, I was sitting here and suddenly the door opens and a woman
enters. Like a flame, she undresses herself, Taking off
everything including Her panties and lies down on the
table and shouts: ‘HELP ME - I
haven't Seen a man in over two years!!’"
"Tunderin' Lard Jeezus, Ole, What did you
do?" asks the doctor.
"Die Antwoord. If you’ve seen this South African rap group’s name before, you don’t need to read any further because you already love Die Antwoord, or you already hate them. If you hate them, you don’t want to know anything more about them, and if you love them, you already know everything there is to know about them."
