I'm sure everyone knows that July 4th is the day of independence for the United States, and most of us knows that July 1st is Canada Day. However, other countries also have their "birthdays" this time of year. This blog salutes a few of them!

Hey, WTS, if the weather in Cali is always so lousy, why do so many people live there? :' )

Found my cams! Now to start the new blog!

Now it's the summer polar vortex?? Some people get all the cool weather ;-) We were cloudy all day, and not just low clouds/fog, real clouds! No rain of course, it's not December, yet! Looks like California is heading for mandatory water restrictions, oh joy....

Good evening! Had some rain earlier; soon, the cold front will pass, and a few days of 70s/50s will be had! :' )

Will try to collect the remaining cams, and get a new blog up by morning!

GG, I think it was raining then; I remember waking up to rain a couple of times last night!

Sandi, mail me the red shoes when you're done! I won't ruin them with my big feet, I promise! :" )

cal, I have been called a squirrel before, but I think I'd be safe from TnT! :' )

Good morning! Muggy day already! Might get into the 90s, unless we get some stormage this afternoon!

Cams look pretty good right now, except for the Tonga cam, which has been down for a while! Will try to find time to cam scout today.

Sandi, if I get a new blog up, I'll keep the Michalovce cam up until the festivities are over!

I wouldn't get too arrogant, GG! We might have us one of those Polar Vortex thingys, and you could get snow! :' )

Ylee, you can't change the header until Slovakia has had its Independence on Thursday. WE have watched them built the arena, we must see them use it! Lol

Everywhere quiet..not even a deer or racoon at the feeder, nor a monkey in the pool.

Good morning!(Barely) Busy day so far, and a warm one, temps are already in the mid 80s, with high humidity! I see a line of storms forming to the NW, and headed this way; don't know if we'll get any of that, or not.

Anybody ever see anyone on Calypso Beach? Me, neither! Might get a new blog up this week, depending on the time!

Cal, I'm glad I don't live near you; you'd sic TnT on me if I didn't make Dakotah's life better, lol!

Tony, I'm sorry to hear that Abbey's getting up there, but ain't we all? At least she's still trying to get the gophers!

Haven't seen any fawns at the feeder lately, wab! Probably laying low!

I like my hot tea with milk and sugar, GG! I prefer Twining's English Breakfast Tea to Lipton!

You're getting quite the collection of shutterbugs, Briar! I appreciate the collages, too; I think the "extended glitch", which allowed me to see Flickr that one day, was on the corporate level. I haven't been able to replicate the glitch on this computer. :(

Sandi, as with such lists, as soon as I get something done, two more takes its' place! :' )

Hi, jus! Well, I'm working, lol! Not sure how much downtine you'll have in Canada, but after 4 chapters, I'm at about 18, 500 words! This is going to be a long story by the time I'm done! :' )

Here's a sampling of Compositionally Challenged photos, Shadow Play challenge. Only photos with Creative Commons permissions are included in this collage. (Many more photos were posted in response to the challenge, but we have to respect their wishes.) Our little Flickr group is now up to 11 members -- 2 Brits, 2 Filipinos, and 7 Americans -- not bad for only our 2nd week.


Looks like a gorgeous evening at AirArctic and I finally made it around to see Milos in the morning.

Cheerio, ave some tea guv? Whats not inviting about that? Okay, two different Cheerios. Coffee has been fighting with me lately so it's black double strong tea with lots of milk.
I agree with Calpoppy, just want to start kicking butt and taking names of the people who are mean to Dakota.

Nice sunrise at Healy, a nice day in La Digue, Milos, and the Bahamas, and one redbird at the feeder!

Got some more work done on Ch. #5; right now, I'm feeling out which way it's going, although the overall plot of the chapter is pretty much set!

Sandi, I guess the monkeys take no heed of tropical storms, lol!

Time to go home! I'll be back Saturday!

Good evening! My last night, I think! A nice day here, temps topped out in the mid 80s. Kinda muggy so far, though; hopefully, it'll cool off nice tonight!

Six deer at thefeeder, and one boat on the Potomac, and one boat on Lake Louise! One monkey!

Sandi, I hope you like Ch. #4 as much as you like your coffee! :' )

Pros, sometimes life just takes over, and your blogging time, or other downtime just has to take a back seat! I know you're still around!

Oz,thank you for your support! I hope you like the rest of it, including what I haven't written yet! :' )

Hi from that stranger who disappears for days at a time.

The Lake Louise cam is showing a beautiful scene at the moment. The DC cam shows a foggy ugly scene, and that's pretty accurate for the last couple of days.

I am off to leave a brief comment on my buddie's blogs and let them know that I am around.... Take care.

You're probably wondering what I'm still doing here at work! Me too, lol! Just one of those things......

Lake Louise looks picture postcard perfect this morning, as does the sunset at the Seychelles!

Well, I'd better get off here and finish up! Be back tonight!

Good evening! just had a heavy downpour! Little storm just popped up out of nowhere, and dumped heavily on us. It's about over now.

D.C.'s lit up nicely, and there are six deer! Monkeys in the sunshine, nice afternoon at Lake Louise.

Glad you found them, ycd!

Hi, oz! Are things getting back to normal, yet?

Had a line of storms pop up just east of here' and move on. He got a brief shower out of it.

Started on Ch. #5; funny how what you originally planned changes so much!

Wab, we got some wind and rain out of that line, but it wasn't too bad. Hope you didn't get hit too hard!

GG, Cheerios and tea doesn't sound that good to me! :' ) Whatever it takes to get you through the day, I guess!

Time to go home! be back tonight!

Good evening! Had a line of strong storms(Sorry, a two minute gust front doesn't qualify as severe, IMO) pass through; strong wings, but very little rain or lightning. It's rained more since, though.

Lake Louise and the snow monkey cam are in bright sunshine, Tonga remains stuck under clouds. Still no sheep there, and nothing at the feeder.

Try this link to get to Chapter 4, ycd! Maybe the link I was talking about earlier is at the very bottom of the page on the Samgal, I'm not sure.

My guess is that the Powers That Be decided that Wordpress doesn't count as social media, for some reason. I still haven't been able to replicate the trigger that allowed me to go to Flickr the other day. Random glitchiness, I guess! ;' )

Actually, at the time, there was a strong breeze, so it didn't feel too bad!

Glitchy 3 is presently throwing a widget.
Is that kinda like when a horse throws a shoe?
I wonder why it is you can see WordPress on Glitchy. It's good that you can, just wondering why. Inquiring minds and all that...

Lake Louise looks interesting right now. The sun angle is such that the lake appears to be iced over.
It's a gorgeous day at Healy State Airport.
Rain moving in at Calypso Beach and, judging by the palm tree, it's windy there.
The solar farm at Tonga isn't catching too many rays, as it's mostly cloudy. Yeah, I got curious what I was looking at there and investigated.

Mostly cloudy and 89° in Lewisport at the moment, so I'm guessing it's feeling humid, and maybe a thunderstorm on the way if the radar is any indication. Keep cool, Ylee, if you can.

ycd, the link to latest chapter of the story is at the top of my recommended links, under Raca Baka.

Sandi, they did have a blue tarp over the tub! Perhaps? It does look a bit different!

Snake, if I was you, I'd stick to post-it notes! :' )

Time to go home! Be back tonight!

Good evening! Slow day on the blogs, I guess! Things were a bit warmer today, with upper 80s, and a stiff breeze at times from the SW! Supposed to have a slight chance of rain tomorrow!

Seychelles cam is still down; might have to replace it before I leave if they don't fix it tomorrow! Raining on the monkeys, and nothing at the feeder! Nice evening in D.C.!

Plenty of blue sky in Healy, and in DC!

Tony, it must be really odd to have so much rain in the middle of summer for the rivers to flood like that, especially since it didn't flood this spring after all that snow!

You presently have a heat index of 91F! No wonder you're melting! :(

Good day Ylee.
The Portage diversion is running at near full capacity.
The Queen took me out to the river today and it's running to the tops of the banks.
When I was working we made a trip by boat from the diversion to Winnipeg with the river running at 11000 cfs and houses near Winnipeg had water a foot from the back door. The government is predicting flows of 18000 cfs on the river. Basement will be flooded. The river is only rated at 15000 cfs so the dykes would be overtopped if the cut wasn't made at the Hoop and Hollar bend in the river which is an oxbow that normally cut off from the main stream.
Enjoy your day while we bake in sauna like conditions..

Good morning! Another nice, cool start to the day, 54 at sunrise! Might get into the low 80s this afternoon.

Seychelles cam is down; dont know when it'll be back up. A mix of sun and clouds on the other cams. A blue tarp on the monkey cam? Curious!

No Enhanced Glitch mode so far, though I can still see Sandi's Flickr rabbits, but not Pros' and WW's Photobucket rabbits! Very odd!

Hi, Sandi! Obviously, a conspiracy begun by Steve Jobs, lol! Did you try to turn the phone sideways. to see what it looked like then?

Moon over Milos, and boats on the Potomac, awaiting tonight's fireworks, I presume!

Big, big, news! Glitchy 3 is presently throwing a widget, so now, for the moment , can see social media images, such as Flickr and Photobucket! This is just temporary, as this happened briefly once before, at the end of a shift! There must be a trigger, as one of Bogon's old blogs once was, causing this phenomenon to occur. I can now see the white rabbits Sandi, Pros, and WW posted, that I couldn't see before! :' )

Tony, hope you dry out soon!

Wab, I wouldn't want to be working for that pizza parlor tonight! :' ) Why do the call them "parlors" anyway?

BF, I can understand, as you've been really busy! Happy 4th!
