Hello, my honeybees!How are you?We’re finally
getting our summer heat and our summer storms, though we can’t compete with Ms.
OKIE for storms or Ms. Beejay for heat.That’s OK.They can keep
them.Not that our local climate can’t
get violent at times.We had trees down
and power outages after the last front went through, and there’ll be more.When a cold front hits hot weather, a storm
can erupt. Some of the tornadoes I’ve
seen online were monstrous in size.How
about a storm from hell four miles wide?A home, a car, and all personal belongings are lost as a tornado sweeps
them up, but does no damage to the house across the street. Summer storms can be beautiful, and deadly.
So can illegal fireworks.As we approach the 4th of July, I believe we’ll see and/or
hear more and more fireworks.Maybe
not.In the city last year, it was
comparatively quiet before, during, and after the 4th of July.Perhaps efforts have paid off.Wow, what a concept.
The Journal Times has a story on our ongoing City Administrator
I didn’t know that we have a problem here, but apparently Mr. Cousin Tom Fried
does.There’s mumbo-jumbo in this
article about the cost of a nationwide search to replace Mr. Cousin.More scare tactics.How come there wasn’t a nationwide search
when Mr. Cousin got the job?He was
decreed City Administrator by King lying John.The Serfs Council approved of him.Now we have this sticky wicket where nearly all city employees are
losing money and benefits.Streetlights
come down.And as more and more people
are forced to bite the bullet, for some reason Mr. Mayor and Mr. Cousin think
Mr. Cousin deserves a $30,000 raise.
We’re losing ground out here.Do any of you city officials give a damn
about this?I can no longer afford one
of my prescriptions because my plan doesn’t cover it.What are we supposed to do?Day after day, we are beset by problems.Day after day, you turn a blind eye.Shame on you!You represent the worst that humanity has to offer.Your selfishness and greed are
legendary.Your pride goes before your

Stay cool, stay hydrated, and stay as beautiful as you
are.Use sun-block if you’re going to be
outside.Put on more as you spend more
time in the sun.Protect your eyes and
epidermis in the summer sun.You’ll
still have a great time.
"For the gut wrenchingly heartwarming story of the day we go to
Hartlepool, Durham, England where a pair of stray dogs was recently
rescued. An elderly Jack Russel named Glenn (so many first names) is
completely blind in both eyes, but luckily he has a buddy named Buzz, a
Staffordshire Bull Terrier who is the little dog’s own guide dog.
"Animal rescue staff found the unlikely duo abandoned in a
sea tunnel. Now they are trying to find the inseparable pair a new home.
They both become very upset if they are away from one another for more
than a few minutes. This is understandable as Buzz acts as Glenn’s eyes.
"They are currentlyliving at the Stray Aid center in Coxhoe
where care givers say the approximately nine and ten year old dogs make
quite the odd couple. Centre manager John Bielby says;
"'They stay together at all times and Glenn follows Buzz wherever he
goes. Wherever one goes the other one follows. They have behaved well in
the kennels and they are both quite playful. They both seem to be doing
"While getting on in years, the two dogs still love to run
and play. The blind dog does well on his own, outside where he can run
freely. However, indoors Glenn needs help so he doesn’t bump into
things. The guide dog Buzz even helps Glenn find his food and into bed
as he guides him around the kennel.

"The famed Bald Eagles from Decorah, Iowa are back on their nest and ready to start a new family! World famous and live streamed via the internet by the Raptor Resource Center, anyone can view the parents raise their eaglets from egg to fledglings from the comfort of their homes. Using infrared cameras and microphones, the eagles can be seen around the clock during the nesting season, which starts in January or February and runs till June."
