One night, after a coworker had shown me a great video on youtube, I got home from work and watched it again, then found other similar videos.

Finally got up at 11 p.m. and went to bed.

I watched pet dogs playing with river otters like they were the best of friends. Freakin' adorable.

This one was my first and my favorite:

I just love cross-species friendships.

Yesterday I said the Lake was a bracing 74 degrees, and even as I typed it, I knew it had to wrong. I had heard the life guard say it to someone and I assumed they should know.

Got a message from the city (telling me our beach is closed) and the water temp is actually 59. That sounds more like it.

We had a lovely evening at the beach last night, except for the biting flies; those f*ckers are nasty and persistant. When we got there, there was a group of 9-10 boys playing some type of ball game in the water (I even commented to the girls there was a lot of "boy energy" at the beach); I was kind of surprised that the life guard was letting this go on, but then I looked at him, and if he was 18 I would have been surprised.(I think he wished he could have joined in.) But the parents were watching and made sure the game didn't get too out of hand, but I thought it was really refreshing to see some boys being allowed to be boys.

Of course, my girls just saw their game as challenge and insisted on walking through the game at every opportunity.

Also, I don't like that your lifeguards seem to want to keep any physical playing around under control, as you've posted about before today.

I understand it when it's very crowded and there are lots of little little ones around. But it was sparsely populated last night and there were no life guard bosses around so...

I really enjoyed watching it. Boys have such different energy than girls and their fun was infectious. Me and the girls decided to have our own little game of catch; we have this square ball (I know, I know, and oxymoron) and if you throw it just right it will skip so we tried to get it to do more than 3 skips. We were unsuccessful but that was never the point.

I then got some sandpizza and sandcake while we warmed up. It's delicious but a little crunchy.
:D

If Buscemi were a good-looking guy, I think his career would have been bigger. But I think he might have been less memorable. I love him as a character actor. He was great in "Fargo."
I <3 Steve Buscemi. Not in an oh god he's hot way, just in he's a great actor and very under appreciated kind of way.

I know that at one point he is called Reb( rabbi, meaning teacher) but it is not clear to me if he was schooled in the oral tradition or if he could actually read the scrolls. His first 30 years did not sound like the life of a scholar.
Have you read Reza Aslan's book
I haven' read Aslan's book. As far as Jesus, wheat I have read says that he read the hebrew texts that were part of what became the bible and that he read the Torah. IF he read them then yeah he would have needed to be literate in Hebrew to do that. IMO (scholarly opinion) I would doubt that an average person from that time, even the priests except for a few very special i.e. high ranking would have been literate and the teaching/learning would have been more from the oral tradition.

That can be supported from the dearth of actual written texts. Some stuff existed sure, but most of the written records that survive from that time and place are Roman documents; boring governmental stuff like taxes and inheritance stuff...civil stuff nothing really Earth shattering.

By and large there aren't a lot of scripture type texts and I attribute that to lack of literacy more than anything else. Pre-paper literate societies used clay tablets, so if people are literate they will find a way to write (and read). Kind of like medieval Europe...the people were illiterate. The few literate people that did exist (monks) wrote stuff down; if the base population had been literate, they would have written stuff down too.

Of course...again...if...god...wo uldn't have been an issue and all that.(._.)

If you loved him in an "oh god he's hot" kind of way, I'd be seriously concerned...

Heh I googled his wife, she's a redhead with glasses.

Jo Andres.

And she's not your usual Hollywood hottie many of the guys seem to get. She looks normal.

FINALLY have decided on what to contribute to the Labor Day potluck we do with the cabin next door. Usually there's a theme, but people have not gotten organized so it's sort of a free-for-all. I was going to do corn bread, but I'd have to make it tonight, and we don't have the party until Saturday -- it'd be too dry by then. Then we thought veggie tray, but I can't make a veggie tray without it costing at LEAST $20, which is more than I want to spend, especially when I won't eat raw veggies.

Then I suggested root beer floats and Nick loved it. Whew. No work, really, and people can fix their own. I just provide the fixings.

I won't eat root beer floats, either, but the kids will love 'em.

Holy crap. 14yo girl is raped by her teacher. Judge has decided that the girl was mentally older than 14 and is victim blaming.

http://www.twincities.com/breakingnews/ci_239...

Nevermind the fact that the girl killed herself at 16 while this was churning through the courts and the judge never met or spoke with her.

Right? Actually I've seen pictures of him when he was younger...20s-ish. His mouth was closed and his hair a bit longer, he wasn't all that bad. Not hot, but not bad.

I almost always do mango salsa. I can make it a couple days ahead of time. I throw in a couple/few bags of chips (doritos, regular, lime...whatever strikes me at the time) and voila there it is. Inexpensive and barely any effort really.
