Too late. . .

I suddenly had an inspiration for the name of one of the cubs at the zoo: Lion John.

Mozilla FireFox vs IE

I normally use Firefox for my browser.  Today, I thought I would try the IE to see if I could get rid of an error message concerning Microsoft Essentials. 

Immediately, there is a flash on my screen, telling me to contact support at 844...blah, blah, blah.  forget you, buddy.  This is a sales gimmick and I know it.  I'm so sure of it.  I log off of IE, go in with problem. 

Now my real problem is I keep getting this stupid error message whenever I totally shut  my machine off and then start it up at a later time.  It concerns this MSI update for Miscrosoft Essentials.  I have to tell it six or seven times not to make any changes...(it can't find Miscrosoft Essentials...I have it, but it can't seem to find it).  I have tried searching for a solution as to how to get rid of this dumb update that obviously I don't need.  Nothing. 

If I go into Microsoft Essentials, it tells me to use IE...I feel like a hamster on a wheel!


Four for Fridays

Hello everyone and welcome back! This has been a crazy week... Busy, busy at work plus the humid weather. I'm looking forward to the weekend. Anyways, your questions...

1) Which TV shows do you watch reruns of?

2) What musician do you consider an icon?

3) Would you be willing to do the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge?

4) Are you ready for the football season?

Enjoy your weekend!

Wildflowers Pt 9!

Yes I have more wildflowers to share with all of you today. I am trying to get everyone caught up with all the pictures I have of the different wildflowers that are out there. I am also trying to go and get pictures of the Fall Wildflowers that are coming out. It is hard to do with everything else that is going on for us. I will try to get one post up a week of my pictures to share. Here are some I thought everyone would like to see:

This is a Butterweed flower this picture was taken at Richard Bong State Recreational Area in Brighton Wi.

            This is a Common Mullein this picture was taken at Pikes Pathway in Mount Pleasant Wi

This is a Drummond's Skullcap this picture was taken at Chiwaukee Wildlife Refuge in Pleasant Prairie Wi.

             This is a Eastern Daisy Fleabane this picture was taken at Bender Park Oak Creek Wi.

               This is a Ground Ivy this picture was taken at Trout Ponds Conservesy Caledonia Wi.

                          This is Ironweed this picture was taken at Bender Park Oak Creek Wi.

               This is a Lardspur this picture was taken at Whitewater College in Whitewater Wi.

          This is a Moss Pink Phlox this picture was taken at Whitewater College in Whitewater Wi.

          This is a Spotted Jeweled Touch-Me-Not this picture was taken at Bender Park Oak Creek Wi.

I hope everyone enjoys these pictures and be sure there a lot more to come. I will let you know a lot of the pictures I am sharing are some new ones for me to find this year and it is taking me some time to find out what kind they are with my couple of sites I use.

Have a great day!

William Tell Overture

When was the first time you heard the William Tell Overture?

For me I'm sure it was the first time I watch the Lone Ranger. When that was I have no idea but I'm sure I was knee high to a grasshopper.

Orbs, with any luck you'll be humming this while you're blazing through town in your truck.

Dear Madame Zoltar

Hello, my lovely friends!  How are you?  It almost feels like autumn at times.  This has been one of those summers that didn’t happen.  Over the years, we’ve had a  few winters that didn’t happen, too.  I’m just waiting for a majority of the Irregulars to winter south.  That’s when I move.

I offer my condolences to the families of Robin Williams and Lauren Bacall.  I still giggle at that Mork and Mindy stuff.

I don’t know how I missed the start of the NFL Preseason, but I did.  Another step toward senility.   The Green Bay Packers look pretty good with the return of Mr. Aaron Rodgers.  Let’s hope that the new boys in down take up the challenge left by their predecessors.  And let’s doubly hope and pray that injury doesn’t chew up the Pack again. 

In the Yahoo Fantasy Football League, I’m ready to go for the draft.  Don’t forget that my team, The Screaming Psychics, came in second place last year.  This year we are concentrating even harder on sending out bad karma to opponents.  The important thing is that everyone has fun and we win.

I didn’t want to get into the political BS again, but I feel compelled to ask Mr. Mayor Dickert, “Where is the supposed video of Sandy Weidner improperly talking to developers on her own?”

He lies, then everyone just says, “Oh, there goes lying John, again.”    

It’s getting embarrassing to say where I’m from.  I usually say Wisconsin, but if they insist, I say near Milwaukee.

OK, enough of the bad, here’s some of the good:

I hope that your visit here is wonderful.

Who knows where the time goes? Ask

Some schools have already started, so watch out for the buses and the kids on the road again.  Pray for world peace.  We seem to be entering a nasty spell, so hang on for the ride.  Paizogony!

"City Attorney: Alleged recording by mayor does not exist"

"RACINE — The city attorney’s office says an alleged recording of an alderman interfering with the city’s plans to acquire property on Mound Avenue does not appear to exist."

Read more:

The more he opens his mouth, the more he lies.  Once again Dickert broadcast a lie on WRJN.  Does he really believe that he's better than the rest of us and his lies are not to be questioned?  Sad excuse for a man.

Useless Information

Did you know:

Cass Elliot (Mama Cass) of the Mamas & Papas died in her sleep at age 32. Sources state her death was due to a heart attack. Elliot died in a London flat, No. 12 at 9 Curzon Place, Shepherd Market, Mayfair, which was on loan from singer/songwriter Harry Nilsson. Four years later, The Who's drummer Keith Moon died in the same flat at the same age.

Elliot lost 80lbs by 'fasting' 4 days a week. It is believe do to the fasting it made her heart weak which cause the heart attack.  Rumors had it for decades that she die chocking on a ham sandwich which is false. During the autopsy nothing was found in her throat.

Smokey Robinson & The Miracles - "The Tears of A Clown" (Vinyl)

In Memoriam, Robin Williams:

"Racine Mayor John Dickert cuts Police and Bus Service Yet Funds a Seasonal Lift Bridge for over $.5M"

From Racine Exposed:

"The Dickert Disaster continues on in the City of Racine – which, for a City of it’s size,  doesn’t have a revenue problem, but instead a spending problem. In fact, many would argue that the City is taxing the residents out of their Homes, Businesses and Jobs, simply so that special interest wants can be funded over what is the legitimate function of government – to provide limited essential services to a Community at an affordable cost."
