    Default Had a lovely day in America today

    For about four weeks in the year America has the most fantastic weather. It's about two weeks in the Spring and two weeks in the Fall.

    The rest of the year is either too hot (thanks to American-made global warming) or too cold (because of the jet stream).

    But today was one of those glorious days. I went to a Fall Festival, full of pumpkins, country music and pork/beef rolls.

    It was a very nice day in America.

    Glad you enjoyed your two weeks. May we now suggest that you leave??? Just a thought!!

    We have about 360 days a year of unbeatable weather in San Diego, but we do try to keep that a secret because then everyone will want to come here!

    Why are so many of you so keen to get this person, who just happens to be an immigrant, to leave?

    I did a poll a few years ago and the overwhelming majority said I should stay.

    What has changed?

    Is it the economy?

    If I do go, you'll have another foreclosed property to deal with.

    Well, I say foreclosed. More of a case of "key left in the door".

    You are clearly a socialist (and best) and have a deep disdain for the American people and its form of government. You are akin to those who move next to an airport and then complain about all of the noise. You should have chosen your home more carefully.

    Soon I will grow tired of arguing with you. So far I'm having good sport.

    It may be too late to send him back but, if we stop posting responses he will surely go away.

    Personally, I beieve Ian's goal is to inflame us all so we make derogatory defaming statements of him here so he can somehow sue us and live on his settlement or "entitlement" and go back to merry old england and live like a king. Just my SWAG.

    You are a sensitive bunch. I'm not going to sue anyone. It's all about the debate!

    There is now indisputable evidence that the world is warming. Furthermore, scientists are 90% confident that global warming is man-made.

    I agree that China is now the world's largest emitter of carbon dioxide. But it only recently took first place from the USA.

    It's not rocket science. There are so many cars here. And you're a big, rich, energy hungry country to boot.

    So to avoid further (possibly catastrophic) damage we must begin to mitigate. Or we can adapt. Move well away from the coast if you choose the latter.

    And whoever said I hate America's government could not be further from the truth. I think it does a great job and should be made bigger.

    I also adore the people. I have written that hundreds of times on these pages.

    But it should not stop us from striving to make the ol' place better.

    We need to end this sense of entitlement to pollute. America should set the example for the rest of the world.

    Lose the V8. Cap and trade.

    China is sure catching up in the polution pie chart. And I'm sure their number is only going to increase.
    So Saturday I decided to walk while golfing instead of driving a cart. I wanted to do my part. Today I drove out to North Bend to watch a skiing movie with friends. It took some gas, but walking while golfing will make up for it..........Not!
    Last Thursday I went for a walk in the mountains to Franklin Falls. Our Summer was in September this year. Maybe a little bit of August too. I do remember doing some hikes then and some kayaking. It's all good in the hood guys.


    Twin Falls, about 30 minutes from my home. A nice hike to do after work in the Seattle area.





    Franklin Falls after work. 45 minutes from my home. This was done on a cloudy day that was misty.

    I spent 3 years on Camp Pendleton (near San Diego), and he is correct. It rains 30 days each spring there, and is absolutely perfect the rest of the year. It's too perfect, like eating too much choclate, you get sick of how perfect the weather is. Clear skies, low humidity, perfect temperature, each and ever day. I hated it. It was like listening to your favorite song over & over & over again, so many times that when you finally stop playing it, you hate it and never want to listen to it again.

    I'll never go back to San Diego. It's too pleasant, and the people (unlike LA) are also pleasant and well-educated. I'm too low-class for all of that, and can only be happy (like Ian) by complaining, in my case it's about ungodly high temperatures, high humidity, no rain in 12 months, cockroaches and and infestation of "immigrants" from the south that make a point of having a few beers before they get behind the wheel, because they think it makes them drive better.

    The horrible truth is that it does.

    I was annoyed by Ian at first, I admit, but his wife is attractive and so I forgive him. Or wait, was that Terry's wife?

    Terry, that last picture looks alot like the run that is on my mountain property! I hike there, flip over fossils and weather permitting the boys & I would enjoy the cool water. On each side there are bear dens but, thankfully, never presented a problem. We are careful near them, and only once, I peeked inside one. I saw alot of berries and ran.

    Looks like you had a great time, great pictures, too. Sue looks so sweet Terry.

    Looks like you might see a beaver dam there, we get those at times.
