Hey, Joe, you wanna ship in some snow? Voulez vous coucher...

I digress...

So... I don't think snow had to be shipped in to the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. I know there was the possibility, but I don't think it actually happened.  On the other hand, snow was shipped over to the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. 'Member that?  Yep.

Okay, so what I'm thinkin' now is, isn't there some brilliant engineer out there somewhere who can figure out a way to scoop up all the huge ice chunks being created by the Coast Guard's ice breaking ships (on the Great Lakes, the Hudson River, etc) - and deliver them to all parts of Cali in need of water? I mean, can't that happen?

Can't it happen where the ice chunks are gathered, transported and perhaps melted during transport or once it arrives in California. Then it gets stored somewhere (I'm not the engineer, so I don't have all the answers!) but it gets released when needed? Am I thinking too small? Would that just end up being a tiny, tiny amount of the water that's needed and therefore be too costly to do? Somebody?

Okay, well, um... how about this theory for California... Cloud Seeding.  Not making it up.

New Year = Out with the Old, in with the New!

...And so... I am finally bidding farewell to my LIVESTRONG wristband. You know the one... the one that cheating/winning bicyclist Lance Armstrong wore. Yeah, THAT one. The yellow rubbery wristband.

I've worn mine since like... I'll say the summer of 2004. When it first hit the scene... Man! Everybody was wearing one! I swear, I think I even remember a story on Entertainment Tonight talking about how it was a celebrity craze. Uh huh. Well, I'm not Ms. Bobby Trendy, so I didn't start wearing it because celebrities were wearing it. I just happen to like "jewelry" on my wrist; I knew about the wristband and I really supported the cause -- or I supported what it represents (represented?) which is? was? finding a cure for cancer.

And despite Liar, Liar, Lance on fire's admittance that he'd been enhancing his performances, I wasn't turned off enough to disown and discard my wristband -- because, as some of us still see it -- Lance may have cheated, but he really DID do a lot for raising money for cancer research, AND, I'm personally still impressed with his own ability to BEAT cancer, so...

But anyway, I'm retiring my wristband. Moving on to something else!

Zimmerman - and (some of) my issues with his trial... or with his claims

I TOTALLY COPIED this comment from another website - to which I am NOT giving credit because there is a LOT of hate on it, quite frankly, but this was one of the well thought out comments: ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ "His (Zimmerman's) wounds are small and the blood isn't flowing down the back of his head. It's trickling in indivdual rivulets, toward his left ear, and the right side of his head. It appears as though he's bent over for the photo to be taken. A glimpse of Trayvon's gray sweatshirt and possibly his hand is in the upper right corner. If these wounds were made by pavement, they wouldn't be so neat and sharp (and only two, with the pounding his allegedly received?) The blood would have flowed down the back of his head when he stood up. He claims he was trying to get to the grass while Trayvon was on top of him, hence the grass and dampness on his coat. He never put his head on the ground? Where's the dirt and grass that should be stuck to the blood? Most people when injured try to feel the injuries. The blood isn't smudged or smeared. He jumps up from being beaten nearly unconscious and has someone take photos of the back of his head? Who is this person? He claims to have seen powder burns on Trayvon's sweatshirt. How is that possible when he was shot in the chest and found face down? Did this person hit Zimmerman in the head and help him turn the body over?" ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Zimmerman - and (some of) my issues with his trial... or with his claims

Uh huh... so there's a guy on the stand now explaining MMA style fighting (mixed martial arts). He is a defense witness, and he's kinda sorta like an "expert" in MMA fighting. One of Georgie's friends/witnesses, you see, was the first to mention MMA style fighting (at least he was the first person I ever heard mention it). He (the earlier witness) claimed Trayvon Martin was on top of Zimmerman and doing an MMA style "ground and pound" on Zimmerman. I got a problem with that. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ My problem is, the defense is suggesting that Zimmerman is actually the one who has knowledge of MMA fighting. So... how is it that he could not find a way to FIGHT BACK -- with his damn fists, feet (and shrewd brain power) if, indeed, Trayvon Martin started punching him?!? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ And I'm thinking... guys... dudes... they FIGHT. I have asked a lot of the males I know if, 1, they've ever been in a fight, 2, did they FIGHT BACK, and 3, during the fight, did they REALLY ever feel like their life was in jeopardy... or... did they just basically feel like they were going to beat up the opponent. They all pretty much said they just felt like they were going to end the FIGHT with a FIGHT, not with a DAMN GUN being shot! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Just sayin'... ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Zimmerman - and (some of) my issues with his trial... or with his claims

Hey "yawl" (as our beloved Paula Deen likes to say), here are some of my issues with what I'm hearing in the Zimmerman trial... ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Today is Monday. July 8, 2013. I'm watching this Zimmerman trial - the one with a guy named George Zimmerman, who's on trial for second degree murder in the shooting death of a young (17 years old) male, Trayvon Martin. Today is the defense's turn (George Zimmerman's side) to put their case, their "evidence" before the jury. So, you got all that? Okay. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ So... the folks on the stand, so far, are long time FRIENDS of George Zimmerman. They each are swearing and testifying they KNOW George's voice. One woman even called him "Georgie". So endearing. Yes, yes, yes. And, she's SO friendly with him that she knows it's his voice screaming for help. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Except... she (or his other friends) DIDN'T know it was "Georgie's" voice when they each were on the phone calling 911 and reporting "someone" is screaming. Not ONE of them called the police and said something like "Oh my God! My FRIEND George Zimmerman is yelling for help! Please send the police!" They each were asked questions by the police to describe who it was who might have been calling for help, and not ONE of them said it was "Georgie". They ALL referred to the screamer as "someone". I got a problem with that... because... a really good friend shouldn't need the George Zimmerman trial to prompt them to realize - with absolute positivity - that, oh, wow, that's their friend screaming for dear life. If they know their friend's voice with absolute positivity, then I'm thinking that, in their 911 call(s), their asses should have been reporting to the police that GEORGE ZIMMERMAN was being attacked and calling for help! Just sayin'... ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
