A Fishing Story

The king wanted to go fishing, so he called on the royal climate scientist
and inquired as to the weather forecast for the next few hours.

The climate scientist assured him that there was no chance of rain
in the coming days. So the king went fishing with his wife, the queen.
On the way he met a farmer on his donkey.

Upon seeing the king the farmer said,
"Your Majesty, you should return to the palace! In just a short time I
expect a huge amount of rain to fall in this area". The king was polite
and considerate, he replied: "I hold the palace meteorologist in high
regard. He is an extensively educated and experienced professional.
And besides, I pay him very high wages. He gave me a very different
forecast. I trust him."

So the king continued on his way. However, a short time later a torrential
rain fell from the sky. The King and Queen were totally soaked and their
entourage chuckled upon seeing them in such a shameful condition.
Furious, the king returned to the palace and gave the order to fire the
professional.

Then he summoned the farmer and offered him the prestigious and
high paying role of royal climate scientist.

The farmer said, "Your Majesty, I do not know anything about forecasting.
I obtain my information from my donkey. If I see my donkey's ears drooping,
it means with certainty that it will rain."

So the king hired the donkey.

And thus began the practice of hiring dumb asses to work in the
government and occupy its highest and most influential positions.

The practice is unbroken to this date and thus, the Democrat symbol was born!

Are we doomed?

In the 30+ years I've lived here (North Bay) I don't recall ever having rain in August. Well today it's raining. I'm REALly REALly scared that we won't make it through the day. My cars have rain drops on them, my citrus trees have drops of water on their leaves and I'm sure the creek next to my house will flood again.

Should I build an ark, move to higher ground or just sit here and continue to laugh at the climate DOOMers?

Is it PRESIDENT's Trumps fault? Should he be impeached for this disaster? Is he colluding with the RUSSIANSs to make it ran on all of the looney Leftys in an attempt to ruin their weekend by drowning their Cannibus and harshing their mellow?

DOOMED, we are surely DOOMED!!

A Tale of Two Homes

House #1
A 20 room mansion (not including 8 bathrooms) heated by natural gas. Add on a pool (and a pool house) and a separate guest house, all heated by gas. In one month this residence consumes more energy than the average American household does in a year. The average bill for electricity and natural gas runs over $2400 per month. In natural gas alone, this property consumes more than 20 times the national average for an American home. This house is not situated in a Northern or Midwestern "snow belt" area. It's in the South.


House #2
Designed by an architecture professor at a leading national university. This house incorporates every "green"feature current home construction can provide. The house is 4,000 square feet (4 bedrooms) and is nestled on a high prairie in the American southwest. A central closet in the house holds geothermal heat-pumps drawing ground water through pipes sunk 300 feet into the ground.

The water (usually 67 degrees F) heats the house in the winter and cools it in the summer. The system uses no fossil fuels such as oil or natural gas and it consumes one-quarter electricity required for a conventional heating/cooling system. Rainwater from the roof is collected and funneled into a 25,000 gallon underground cistern. Wastewater from showers, sinks and toilets goes into underground purifying tanks and then into the cistern. The collected water then irrigates the land surrounding the house. Surrounding flowers and shrubs native to the area enable the property to blend into the surrounding rural landscape.

~~~~~
HOUSE #1 is outside of Nashville , Tennessee ; it is the abode of the "environmentalist" Al Gore.

HOUSE #2 is on a ranch near Crawford , Texas ; it is the residence of ex President of the United States , George W. Bush.

I thought both candidates were white?

Amazon Warehouse Deals

Anyone had a bad experience with Amazon warehouse deals? I've had good experiences with them until today.

A couple of days ago I ordered a canister filter for one of my aquariums. I ordered the Hydor 350 and it arrived today. The first thing I noticed was stuff rattling around in the box. I thought no big deal because the filter media probably broke through the bag. Well, I opened it and noticed that the the box containing the filter was too big for the filter. I opened the filter and it still had water in it. The BIO media was wet and the sponge filters were dirty. Not a big deal as I have extras. The next thing I noticed was that there were only two media trays when there should be three. Next I noticed that one of the blades on the impeller was missing.

It seems that someone bought a 250 and broke the impeller. They then ordered a 350, put the broken 250 in the box and returned it to Amazon getting a refund for the more expensive filter. Amazon then "inspected" and resold it as "Like New" when it was anything but "like new".

What kind of scum would even think to do something like that?

Father O'Malley

Father O'Malley awoke to a winter day in his new Washington D.C. Parish, a short distance from the White House. He walked to the window of his bedroom to see a beautiful day outside. The snow had stopped and the sun was shining. However, he then noticed there was a jackass lying dead in the middle of his front sidewalk. He promptly called the White House.

The conversation went like this:

"Good morning. This is Barrack Obama. How might I help you?"

"And the best of the day te yerself. This is Father O'Malley at St. Ann's Catholic Church. There's a donkey lying dead near me front steps and would ye be so kind as to send a couple o'yer lads to take care of the matter?"

Barrack, considering himself to be quite a wit and recognizing the Irish accent, thought he would have a little fun with the good father, replied, "Well now Father, it was always my impression that you people took care of the last rites!"

There was dead silence on the line for a moment...

Father O'Malley then replied, "Aye, 'tis certainly true; but we are also obliged to notify the next of kin first, which is the reason for me call."
