Many thanks Lis.
To DVNP, about 250 miles (little over 4 hrs drive).
I could'a gotten an AC years ago. Thing is, the windows slide sideways, and the open-window space is not big enough to install
an AC so that the condenser, with drain hose hangs outside.
Also, cutting a square hole in the side of the house, dedicated to an AC unit would only serve the living room, and possibly kitchen, unlike central air, making those costs largely inefficient.
But I DO appreciate the sentiment.
Yup, lived in Bako for 37 years and remember how stinking hot it can be. My brother still lives there with his family near Beale Park. I called him on Saturday and he was just sitting in front of the window AC spraying himself with ice water. LOL, I have to say I don't miss that at all. Lots of my Facebook Bako friends were heading to the coast to get away from it for a bit.
California utilities are just too expensive to run ac for very long. I feel for you all.

Is this the one? LOL! Sorry Bob, sometimes I do miss posts and this one is a good 'un.
I am afraid you may be right but I am still holding out hope that what happened at Benghazi will come to full light. So many theories out there as to why this happened and I don't believe it's ineptitude. Like Lisw I think it has been the reason the IRS targeting Conservative groups was allowed to see daylight hoping to redirect our attention.(ooh, shiny... and off we go)I don't think they intended all the other stuff to come out with it.
That mystery place in Utah is quite an interesting little building project. I have friends who are contractors on site and yup, it's a doozy.
I hope you're wrong about answers being given to the families of Benghazi but you stand a good chance of being right.
Thank you. Unfortunately Issa cannot force anyone in the Admin to testify. Subpoenas will likely only result in either more stonewalling or pleading the 5th.

The only way for the Benghazi truth to emerge is for someone to come forward as an independent whistle blower. That includes members of our military in Libya or here in the US at the time, or someone in the Admin. Of the 2, our best shot is someone in the military in Libya, who was an eye witness to the events. If anyone DID wanna come forward, his or her life would be in jeopardy, if that person was ID'd prior.

The other day, Muller knew he'd be testifing in front of Congress and could not answer basic questions of how many people would be assigned to investigate the IRS issue, nor did he know the name of the lead investigator. Amazing incompetence.

And after 6 weeks,(according to the ACLJ), the FBI has not moved one inch to investigate the IRS issue. AG Holder has apparently decided it would only put his boss (and friend) Obama in a bad light.

Looks like Barack has all the cards right now.

Bobbi, you're quick with the name-calling but let's hear your thoughts:
Should America give military aid to Assad or the rebels?
They ALL suck and whoever comes out on top won't matter. Which enemy is in control is of Syria is what the ultimate bottom line is.

"Curse this lousy weather"

Australians join in on Global Warming Hoax, follow NASA's climate fraud!

Somehow, the socialist global warming scammers have enlisted Australia in their deception!

"Manmade global warming was likely a significant contributing factor in Australia’s “Angry Summer” of 2012-2013, according to a new study. It was the country’s hottest on record and featured devastating wildfires as well as widespread flooding. The research, to be published in an upcoming issue of the journal Geophysical Research Letters, shows that global warming has increased the chances of Australians experiencing extremely hot summers by more than five times, and is likely to raise the odds by even more in the coming decades.

The study comes from researchers at the University of Melbourne, and follows the approach taken in other analyses of recent extreme heat events, such as the 2003 European Heat Wave and Russian heat wave and wildfires of 2010. Such fractional attribution studies don’t seek a single cause of a particular weather or climate event, but instead examine how some factors may have altered the risk that such an event would occur."

So true. I can't deny what you're saying here. It is discouraging. The Obama admin has done a fine job of covering it's rear. It is scary that something like this can exist in the USA.

Take a peek at one of the religion threads, and you'll see the treatment that "Christians" give to nonbelievers.

But hey, many, many gods have been postulated. One does not capitalize when speaking generically about gods.

When I was a little girl growing up in California we were taught that we were heading into an ice age. We were also taught that California was going to suffer a huge earthquake within 30 years (long past) and the coastal region would fall into the sea along the continental shelf. We were also taught that oil came from decomposing dinosaurs.
science has it's quirks.

The study did find that belief among scientists in “anthropogenic [human-caused] climate change has fallen from 75%(for the period between 1993 and 2003) as of 2004 to 45% from 2004 to 2008.” The Organization Studies analysis of scientific opinion did not update the figures after 2008, as computer models began to fail. The analysis also noted that many scientists who believe in man-made climate change do not see it as a disaster, as the Earth has experienced in its long history several periods of significantly warmer weather than in the last 100 years.

You may be right. It's a strange thing. I have worked with clients who are atheists, but when at the lowest point in their life, they call to God for help. When things are better they are back to being atheists, but I believe that at that vulnerable moment they knew there was something greater than themselves.

Oh I get it now. Since some you describe as Christians treat non believers badly on other threads you feel justified in insulting the beliefs of anyone you decide believes in God , regardless of the fact that they have not engaged in bad behavior themselves. Very rational behavior Catcher.

'Bad weather bob'. Yep. Two days ago, it was 116 degrees here. It was even hotter yesterday, though I ain't sure what the exact temp was. Finally got a break today, it was only a hundred.
some idiot just said that fracked natural gas is cleaner than coal. Doesn't keep up with the propaganda. Studies have shown over 240 Carcinogens have been measured in recovered water from Fracking drill sites. and most places where fracking is done, you can light your water on fire. If a body thinks that hat is OK, then you're probably already pissing napalm.
Places where fracking is in overdrive are wastelands, but the current administration won't acknowledge that. Those places are going to end up like that reservation in South Carolina (I think) The Ford Motor company used big parts of that rez aaas dumping grounds for years. Virtually everybody living there has multiple health problems, and no amount of hospital aid is going to make any of them better. Ford 'settled' with them about six years ago, awarding each member about thirty thousand dollars. The Ford Motor company told them 'This is as good as its going to get, because we are facing bankruptcy.' The tribe settled, and the government bailed out Ford. They got away from that suit with very minimal losses. I think that that judgement should be set aside, and a Real settlement should be put in place.
I mean, look at what PG&E had to pay for bad water in that desert town. Ford can afford a four hundred milluion dollar settlement, and the people of that reservation deserve Much, Much more.
Check out the documentary 'Mann vs. Ford'. It's on video.

Wishful thinking.

There are atheists in foxholes.

No, you don't get it.

I yam what I yam. Just like Popeye the sailor man.

I don't have to justify myself, to you or anybody else.

I'm like Howard Cosell: I call them like I see them.

Nah, Bad didn't build the track.
There is this special concept, been around for some time now, but likely NEW to you. Lotsa folks refer to it as "common sense".
There's also a concept known as 'selective disapproval'.

(It's a synonym for 'hypocrisy' which is about as new to you as your liver.)

I wasn't the only one posting on the subject, but god forbid you should chastise anyone but me, bob. That would be wrong.

Tough one. Now that the Egyptian military has ousted Morsi, there's a good chance to have a moderate President elected by the people.

If that happens, the Syrians may be emboldened to try for freedom from years of oppressive rule. The only way that might work is for BOTH sides to unite & kick Assad out.

Otherwise the US arming the rebels gets Russia and China behind Assad and as you know, Iran has always been helping Bashar.

But doing nothing gives the odds to Assad to remain the ruthless dictator in power. And that may ultimately force Israel to say they've had enough Arab persecution. Who could blame them for sending a multitude of Arabs back to Allah with a nuke or two in self defense? WWIII would surely ignite.

Obama's in a tight spot here, and I can't think of a better goat for the job. One wrong move and he's done (IMO).
