I am tired of...

By: mobal, 1:31 AM GMT on February 26, 2010

Of politics, worry, the small stuff, talking heads, commercials that go up in volume, TAXES!, clueless people, price of gas and food. I am sure I left a few off.

But now I have a plan!


They do not talk, vote......well not here, maybe Chicago...They watch on TV, I pay no tax and the small stuff can fertilize your garden. I am sure their waste can also make gas and they produce eggs. They are not clueless (eat, sh!t, make eggs). They don’t watch the news and can’t talk.

What are you tired of and what is your plan?

Email your prayers?

By: mobal, 2:54 AM GMT on February 23, 2010

First off I am not trying to preach or anything like that, just had a very interesting question asked to me.

Interesting question, asked to me by a 5 or 6 year old. "Can I Email God my Prayers"?

My first thought was dont expect an RE:

My Reply however to him was something in the order of He knows whats on your mind and you can just talk to him as you would me. The - you must really have faith, praise etc. was after. He was only six!

Anyhow, since then I GOOGLED "Email God". Seems there are sites that let you do such....Now that is strange to me!

Well I think I handled it right, his mother seemed pleased. And no, I have no idea why this question was directed at me, as the boy was pretty much a stranger. He insisted to hug me before I left though. Yes, a strange day.......

Hurricane Scale Change

By: mobal, 10:54 PM GMT on February 21, 2010

BAYOU LA BATRE, Alabama - Hurricane Katrina came ashore as a category three storm in 2005. But if you ask folks along the Mississippi and Alabama Gulf Coast how to rank Katrina, they will say it's a storm like no other.

Holly Bosarge who lives in Bayou La Batre says, "It was the most devastating thing that I think in my life I will ever go through."

Katrina's storm surge did not fit the category three storm critieria of 9-12 feet. Katrina's storm surge was over 20 feet in some spots, and that would've equated to a category five storm on the old Saffir-Simpson Scale. The wind speed and categories stay the same, but the storm surge will no longer be included on the Saffir-Simpson Scale.

Katrina was not the only storm to make this change necessary says Jeff Garmon from the National Weather Service. "Hurricane Ike was a big storm with category two wind, but storm surge over 15 feet."
Garmon says regardless of this minor change, you need to pay attention to the forecast. "Know how much your storm surge is. What you can take at your location and when you need to leave. Do this before hurricane season. Understand, what is 10 feet of storm surge, and what it is going to do in my community. Hide from the wind or run from the water."


Small Soap Box

By: mobal, 2:32 AM GMT on February 18, 2010

Well it has been awhile since I posted here, this would of course exclude the Alabama and Saints games. Good for them! But to hear some say it the Saints deserved to win and it could happen to no better city. Oh yes, I now have my chocolate football…..Give me a break. Good job Saints! No more, No less.

As far as current political events go, I will leave that to the masters here. I like Jers, GR’s and opposing post.

It would seem that in the subject of weather…according to this sites powers that be, we are DOOMED. We had 12 inches of global warming when I was in Dallas a week or so ago. I don’t think they read the news. If they did they would know that we get it now. BTW, I have some of those mercury laced bulbs at a discount. Talking about screwing up our planet!

I even looked at a SMART FOR2, at $15.000… it didn’t seem all that smart to me. Let’s be real here, we all want a Clean planet, but I am still attached to a Green Wallet, as are most.

I could go on about other things, Such as why the teacher at UA Huntsville slipped through and no one else was armed. but work comes early. In this economy work is GOOD!
