Happeeeeeeeeeeeeee Saturday to most of you . I wanted to chime in and wish a good day, leaving for work in 30 minutes. Yesterday, I made up my hours for being off work Thursday and it was a great, great, productive day. The heat is going to kill the majority of us and I am hoping for snow. Shall be back on here sometime later, going to lunch after work with a few co workers.
Hey there Veeeeeee! Whether sick time, vacation or just one day off, it seems we put in more we leave and more when we return. Why bother to take off?!

I made up this holiday week for my own time off the week before.

Stay cooooooooool!

<quoted text>Good morning El and Grace and all my friends
When you talk about it being hot I smile. The heat doesn't bother me much. My wife doesn't understand how I can enjoy sitting out on the patio when it is 100. I turn on the mister and enjoy reading in my reclining lawn chair :)
I'm with ya Denny! Not find of the A/C and prefer it over 80F. Can do without the humidity but then we can't have everything!

that could be part of it ... and ensuring that the system was abused for the solidification of the power and comfort of the Muslim Brotherhood faction.

But, the current unrest is the dis-satisfaction of the other segments of the Egyptian populace and political activists in being steam-rolled by Morsi, the Islamist-stacked parliament, and the constitution they developed; asserting that their voice in resolving various domestics issues was not being heard.

Selective events in timeline outlined here:

http://www.bostonglobe.com/news/world/2013/07...

Nov. 28, 2011-Feb 15, 2012 — Egypt holds multistage, weekslong parliamentary elections. In the lawmaking lower house, the Muslim Brotherhood wins nearly half the seats, and ultraconservative Salafis take another quarter. The remainder goes to liberal, independent and secular politicians. In the largely powerless upper house, Islamists take nearly 90 percent of the seats.

Nov. 19 — Members of liberal parties and representatives of Egypt’s churches withdraw from the 100-member assembly writing the constitution, protesting attempts by Islamists to impose their will.

Nov. 22 — Morsi unilaterally decrees greater powers for himself, giving his decisions immunity from judicial review and barring the courts from dissolving the constituent assembly and the upper house of parliament. The move sparks days of protests.

Nov. 30 —Islamists in the constituent assembly rush to complete the draft of the constitution. Morsi sets a Dec. 15 date for a referendum.

Dec. 15, Dec. 22 — In the two-round referendum, Egyptians approve the constitution, with 63.8 percent voting in favor. Turnout is low.[while the Muslim Brotherhood turned out in sufficient numbers for the very 'favorable' vote]

and for brevity, I omitted physical attacks of Coptic Christians and secular activists and protesters by Islamists zealots.

It's deeper than corruption and graft.
Wow! And here I thought it got better for the people when they ousted Mubarak. Just exchanged one devil for another.

'Morning Grace.
I'm glad to hear that the incident went off without serious
consequence...
It was warm here yesterday, today, although the newspapers say
we are to have the hottest Summer for seven years, it is really
cool, in fact I am freezing! Hopefully the sun will burn through this mist! Ah, the joys of living near the mountains, lol.
I notice you speak with what is on your mind Grace, so I feel I
can talk in the same vein. Would you mind explaining why your
dog does not come back to you on command at this stage of her
life? I would seriously work to that goal if I were you, I
would not take too kindly myself to someone's dog charging at
me in a threatening manner. Who knows, that fellow may possibly
have had a heart condition himself.
EL ... it has been my experience that not all dogs are as trainable as others ... I have had a Schnauzer and Beagle, and in both cases they were of the personality that they would be obedient when they CHOSE to be obedient ... once they got their minds focussed on something else, they seemed to turn off thier ears to thier master.

I have had other friends tell me of the same experiences with thier dogs.

Ali seems to be of that personality as well ...

I'm pretty sure the only snow you will see for a while will be what you can scrape off the inside of your freezer.

After I wrote my post I did read more on the religious aspects and the Brotherhood's involvement ... but your post above fills in a lot of blanks so thanks for that ....

Once again, religion seems to be the basis for political and social unrest ... partly because religion is being used as a basis for creating a position of power and control.

SIGH!!!

Ah! The racket racket I'd completely forgotten. Good point!
Score: 15, love ... franko
I'll be happy when the score is 6-1 6-1 6-1 ... LOL!!!

WEll the women's final is over ... Lisicki was mentally worn out after beating several top 10 players and Serena, she hardly put up a fight ... Bartolli had the easy path to the final ... OH well, she deserves at least one major in her career.

I am pretty sure that the men's match will be a very tough match ... both players are at the top of their form.

and travel time and money ... and time is money!:)
I don't remember if 'we' went up Grouse Mountain and some other specifics ... in Vancouver, did remember seeing Gas Town, Old China Town, boat ride on False Creek to the 'island' that's really a peninsula. Markets, shops, and the night spots where the 'cool kids'[of all ages] hang. And the Asia West shopping, eating experience.
And then Victoria by day and by night.
My brother and father have often hosted guests from out of town and they know the lesser known gems to take them ... for example all the tourists pay big bucks to see the Capilano Suspension bridge ... but the locals know they can see a similar setting and bridge for free at lynn canyon ...

How long was it since you were out here?

Hey Franko....I believe it was a brilliant match, saw a few
highlights later on (Djokivich)....I really like Jerge Janovich (sp) in fact I was 'come on Jerge' lol..but it was nice to see
Andy win in all fairness, and of course being British and all
that, would be nice..I wouldn't miss tomorrow's game for the world.
the match starts at 6 AM my time so I will have the PVR set to record and I will "watch" it about 2 hours later ...

It has been my observation that the sort of people who rise to power tend to be the kinds of people who hunger for power and will do anything to get it ... you're not going to get very many truly socially responsible leaders at the highest positions ... they are "too nice" and tend to get pushed aside
