    Me too.

    I think it might be the type of smoker(s). Ours are sealed incredibly well. I think his has a "smoke box" and a blower. Pretty sure he can just dial up a temperature and it does most of the work for you like the pellet feed type.

    Not a fan.

    I got bit by one when I was a kid. Me and three of my cousins were riding him and I guess he decided he'd had enough and turned around and chomped down on my foot. He wouldn't let go. I fell off (we were riding it bare back) and it was holding me upside down by my foot. I was about six and was on it with two older cousins.

    I have been to Kauai where it poured rain for 10 days straight (our honeymoon) but it was not like that.

    I cleaned out my rain gutters yesterday. There was so much muck plants were growing in a couple spots.

    Over here on the Westside the sky is grey and the ground is bright green everywhere.

    Chuck Moore says they got a foot of rain last night, and that Kauai had 27" of rain in 24 hours.

    There was some flooding over on the Windward side but where I am it was just rainy.
    Aaron said his grandmother's house in Hanalei is flooded to about 3' but they were fine in Kapaa. Thankfully his grandmother was staying with his mom in Kapaa. My friend who farms Taro in Hanalei is completely underwater. From the view point way up on the hill you used to be able to see their big white barn. In the picture he posted on FB you can only see the barn roof in the midst of the big brown lake that the whole valley became. But his family is safe too. They evacuated to higher ground once the river started to reach it's banks. They may have lost some pigs.

    For those of you that donít know Santa Catalina Island is a small island 26 miles off the Southern California coast. It has two small towns on it and is a vacation spot. Back in the early movie making days they filmed westerns there. They imported bison (and other animals) and just left them there. It became a problem when they started breeding. When the Island Conservancy was created they struck up a deal with Yellowstone and now cycle them in and out. They have become part of the ecosystem but in a controlled way.

    Didn't they also have a huge goat problem too? I think one of my buddies hunted goats there. As part of the eradication process they lotteried hunting licenses for goats there.

    Maybe that's the reason the one time I went horseback riding the horse tried to kill me. He could sense my reluctance.

    There are railroad tracks about a half mile from our condo, carrying both freight and passenger trains. While in Florida, I forgot how much I enjoy hearing the trains go by. Some folks find it annoying, but I like it....

    Just woke up from a long nap.

    Up early to take James to surgery to get drainage tubes removed from his ears. They actually kind of made us leave a bit too early when James still needed to rest because the baby next to him was going into respiratory and then cardiac arrest.

    I actually walked by the baby, and the mom had him/her on her lap facing outward and she was sleeping and the dad was just sitting in the chair next to them on his phone. The baby was purple so I told the nurse.

    They got the baby resuscitated, it was crying and then it just stopped again. They called for an anesthesiologist and came running with a crash cart. It was really scary so we didn't mind when they were asking if we could take James home a little early.

    As we were leaving I was lead past the baby again. It was a deeper purple and they were about to use the defibrillator on him. They took James out the long way around. The nurse that brought James out looked pale.

    Thankfully James was still feeling the effects of the happy juice and was babbling away. He got sick about a mile from the hospital so I pulled over until he fell asleep and then drove home. I didn't want to wake him up and bring him in if he still felt sick so I just stayed with him in the car for what turned into three hours. He was all snugly in blankets and a pillow. Now he's up and back to normal. He says he thinks he can hear better

    Poor little baby!

    Glad to hear James is doing well (see what I did there?)....
