24 and counting...

Thursday morning already. So there must be truth in the saying that "time flies when you're having fun..." The 64000 dollar question is who is having fun - really? We had our lighting system changed at the office this week, an incentive program from the Electricity company will see a possible reduction in the bill, but famous time will tell. Funny how you might think you save in one area but you sure make up for it in another pretty soon. Hey, I heard from Nancy's sister Linda who is back in Zimbabwe that there is totally no fuel even on the black market, and when it is available it will run you zw$1000 000 in hard cash for a full tank of gas is going to cost you in the region of zw$2.5 million dollars...pretty weird as the now average income is in the ballpark figure of zw$3 million...go figure - something is drastically wrong in the motherland! The latest past time is listening to the drum beat on where to find bath soap - there is none available. No doubt as the farm issue now starts to take its toll, there are no ranchers doing much herding and beef production, which results in less beef on the market which results in less animal waste fat which ultimately results in no "Tallow" - The suet or fat from animals such as sheep or cows," the substance base used in soap time you are in Bullies, take a walk (can't fuel) past EC LENNING, and take a deep wiff of the lovely smell of animal fat, yip that is pretty gross - that's why they say a "dirty way to get clean".

Monday Blues anyone?

It's the start of a brand new week again. Ever feel on a Monday like it is the first day back at school? Tummy churns, head spins, and feel totally not like doing any of this! In San Diego at this time of the year it is summer, and every morning starts out with a thick marine layer of fog that eventually burns off through the sun at around 10am - the last few days the marine layer has been pretty thick and drifting inland at least until midday. This makes a welcome change to the hot sun. The weird thing is that even though it is summer there is a lack of humidity which makes for very pleasant days. It can be a crystal clear sky with the sun beating down, yet there is no uncomfortable sticky muggy feeling. Take a fools' advice - still insist on using sunblock, trust me you won't regret it. I hope that whomever stumbles on to this blog, will have a blessed day, and a wonderful week ahead. Want to leave a comment? Go ahead and and click the comment link...
