I'm almost positive I've seen this video before. It was posted to Break and YouTube today, but that doesn't mean that it's new. People re-post videos all of the time. Often, they're unaware that another copy of the video is already up.
Last night I was sitting on our patio playing cards with my ex's nine year old daughter. Then all of a sudden I was hearing sirens and then more sirens. I got Drew and he heard them, then he looked on the computer to see if he could find out what is happening and he said that there is a fire at the Mobil gas station right on the corner of 3 Mile Rd and Main st..
So the three of us walked over to see what was happening, They had the street in front of our apartment complex blocked off and there was about four or five fire trucks, about seven police cars and one ambulance. The owners of the gas station are all alright. I was talking with the lady and she said the the driver of the SUV was a woman and she just came off of 3 Mile Rd and slammed into the gas pump. It is just so scary when it happens so close to home. What is so weird is that I was at the gas station about three hours before this happened.
Of course Drew did bring the camera with so he could get some pictures of what happened. Here are a couple pictures to share with you!
Hello, my summer soul mates!How are you?We’re finally in the
temperatures appropriate for this time of year, but the rain hasn’t
stopped.Last year was just the
opposite: dry as a desert.Did God
promise not to destroy the Earth by water again?We should be safe, then, from too much
flooding.While we’re soaked, wildfires
rage across the dry western states.Like
our politics, our weather is polarized.
I hope you all had a fun and safe Independence Day.I didn’t go to the parade.Señor Zanza and I stayed home and cooked on
the grill.Junior went to the parade,
stopped home afterwards to wolf down some brats and burgers, and then took off
with his friends again.God knows what
those kids do all day.I’ll worry ten
times as much when Junior learns how to drive.
I’d like to thank all of the volunteers who helped clean up North
Beach on the 5th of
July.Bravo!You represent the best of Racine.Unfortunately, the people who left the mess
represent the worst.Boo!Why can’t they bring along some plastic
grocery bags and clean up before they go?Is that so hard?I guess so…I’ve tried talking to litterbugs.They don’t appreciate it.I think some will be littering their entire
lives while others will be picking up after them their entire lives.It’s almost symbiotic.
Did anyone go to Summerfest in Milwaukee?It’s been quite awhile since I went.Last time, I almost passed out on one of the
carnival rides, the Zipper.Never
again.No carnival rides.None.Never.Summerfest can become very
crowded and I don’t like that.When I
see large groups of drunken people, I am reminded of the drunken rioters in my
who burned out the Gypsies.I’m better
off staying away from Summerfest and enjoying what Racine
has to offer: smaller groups of drunken people.
Oh my, I’m teasing.I
Poor Paula Deen, crucified for admitting to using the
dreaded “N-word.”Really.I think it would be odd if she, or anyone
else her age, had not used the word at some point in their lives. Unless she’s been using it recently to degrade
others, I don’t quite understand the fuss.We have ceded so much power to the “N-word.”We fear it like superstitious natives.A collection of symbols can destroy a
career.That’s preposterous, but true.
Finally, is Racine
broke or not?I keep hearing different
stories.Our Mr. Mayor Dickert has many
ambitious projects in the works, but furlough days and removing streetlights
have been required to keep the books balanced at City Hall.Is everything going to happen with borrowed
money?Who will pay it back?Oh my.
Thank you for reading my blog today.Thank you for being you.I look forward to my visit with the
Irregulars and others every week.I
appreciate your patronage.
hard to believe that the 4th of July is already over.Take advantage of the weather while you can,
because 6 months from now we’ll be in the deep freeze.Pedestrians and drivers: look both ways,
Every Honda owner I've known has loved his/her car or motorcycle. They last forever. 100,000 mile is just break-in for a Honda. Even their lawn mowers and snow throwers are excellent. They once kicked Detroit's ass, and deservedly so.
"RACINE- It appears the Racine Common Council will be considering an
ordinance that will give Racine Mayor John Dickert the power and control
to pick who he feels is 'disruptive', and who is being 'respectable'
and who is 'conducting themselves with civility,' during the public
comment portion of the Council Meetings.
"The Public Comment section of the meeting is the residents
opportunity to address their elected officials, either with gratitude or
disapproval. Sec.2-64 of the Racine Ordinance will also give the Mayor
the power to end a speakers time for being 'disrespectful' or 'abusive,' basically giving the mayor the right to gavel anyone down
with whom he may not agree with or like.
"We’ve done hours of research watching old Common Council meetings
going back over 4 years looking for any sort of personal attacks or
abusive remarks by residents or people speaking at the pubic comment
section, and we found nothing even close to anyone acting out of line or
irrational. So we ask, is this constitutional? What is considered 'abusive' and what exactly is 'a level of civility'?"
