I think that I hear crickets or maybe tree frogagep webs outsweide as a constant backgound noise.
Is that wocka,wocka noise coming from the trees katydids(at night) or cicadas? It doesn't sound like that awful racket that cicadas sometimes make.I didn't get to go up north to see the reduntsin, mi web page maples that I suspect are out in the Upper Peninsula.I'll have to settle for looking at the little mountain,michigan <a href=http://www.summitpost.org/little-mountain/ mountain,michigan web page. /a

Tomorrow marks the opening of the college football season and thus the end of the long, awful purgatory where baseball is the only team sport of any mention happening in the U.S. This occurs every year from the end of the NBA/NHL playoffs (whichever happens to last longer) until now - two months of baseball baseball baseball. Drives me nuts.
And only 8 days until the NFL starts.

How is it that no one walks to school anymore?
I'm not sure that the nickname of the DC NFL team is that offensive
. I could be convinced otherwise.
When did wearing bike helmets become the norm rather than the exception and why?
When did the NBA become such a bore (I'd say 1999)?
When will 100TBs of information fit on a thumb drive that costs less than $50?
Best comic book character of note?

Do not check your iPhone/Blackberry/whatever when I'm talking to you and mumble something along the lines of "I'm listening." No, sorry, you're not.

If the US really did pressure Portugal, France, and perhaps a couple other nations not to let the Bolivian President's plane fly through their airspace because US intelligence agencies thought Edward Snowden might be on board (and this is the exact story I've now seen reported in the WaPo and on CNN), what to think? My own view would be that we have seriously lost our sh1t, and why give Latin America yet another reason to hate the US?

Won't they every grow up?!!? Sometimes the four year old talks like he's 32, sometimes he talks like he's 2. Dude, pick one!
The 22 month old survives on cuteness alone, speech and otherwise.

First Chuck Hagel as SecDef (and Bob Gates before him), now Jim Comey as FBI Director
And this is just stupid: Comey’s nomination ... was described by some officials as a symbol of bipartisanship.
