Tuesday's Ramblings...

Well, it's Tuesday....the day after Monday....a Monday where we set a record high for Atlanta....a record high of 98-unfrickinbelievable-degrees. It felt every bit of it too. It's pretty bad when you come home from work, no one's in the house doing anything to generate heat, all the curtains are drawn, and the air conditioner is running full blast and the temperature gauge inside the house says 79 degrees AND you have it set at 75 degrees!!!!! God help us all - it's not August after all!!! Give us something to look forward to.....

Day two of the Ritchie Miller Walk Across Georgia ended with the following vlog post from Ritchie, Dusty and Brent. Standard hilarity ensues

I'm fighting off allergies or some other kind of crap. I think it's the smog that's generated from the "low air quality conditions" that surround the Atlanta area. Ugh...

Okay...what the heck is up with gas prices? Seriously! Shooter paid $4/gal last night. It makes me very sad and angry at the same time. I heard a news report too that said that the current price of a barrel of oil truly translates to about $4.50 per gal - they said by the end of the week we might be seeing those prices....guess I'll go ahead and fill up my car too.

I did a cursory glance at BP and Exxon and here's what I found:

BP Oil Company
BP's first quarter replacement cost profit was $6,588 MILLION compared with $4,444 MILLION a year ago. PEOPLE THIS IS AN INCREASE IN PROFIT OF 48%!!!!!!!

Exxon
Record first quarter net income was $10,890 MILLION, up 17% from the first quarter of 2007. Geez, that's SURPRISING!!

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

I'm sure you've all seen the "trunk monkey" commercials, but I saw one the other day I hadn't seen before...so enjoy!

Seriously, I'm considering taking up biking so that I can save a few bucks!!! I hope it rains here soon, my garden is dying for some wet love!!!

Dang! I wish we had the trunk monkey commercials here!

What we do have is the heat (and now, too, the flood waters), and the gas prices that are inching dangerously close to $4. I got my bike tuned up last week for the goal of biking on shorter errands and ventures around town rather than using the bike.

However, if it stays this hot (or rainy), I'll be stuck indoors. It's too much to bear sometimes, which is why, wow, your pastor's goals is quite impressive (and, from the sound of it, painful!). Many prayers for him and his team!

I love your new header! Also the gas prices anger me too especially when the profits are so high for the oil companies.

Okay, I respectfully withdraw my request for said trunk monkey.
