Hi MOM,

Sorry to have neglected you. I see the boys have generally been up to their quarrelsome ways.

We love them anyway.

The "Foot Loose" production was quite nice. I'm going back tonight. Watching high schools test and explore their creative wings is quite uplifting.

Sum Yung Sun's drumming was spot on. In fact, the entire 5 piece band did a a great job. Turns out, he could have been nekkid because the band is behind a screen and not visable to the audience. Heard lots of comments, with which I agree, that performing to live music instead of canned really added to the musical.

Several of the kids had real pipes on them. I was very, very impressed with the singing of several, and the acting ability of all.

We're building the plants to build the solar panels so that Californians can pursue their lotus-eating lifestyle:

Hoku.
Nordic.

A company making photovoltaic film (rather than panels) is locating here, name etc. not yet announced, but it's probably going to purchase an existing building once used to make pacemakers, etc.

And the two local semiconductor companies who are forming a partnership to help better regulate both photovoltaic and wind energy sources should be mentioned.

And, of course, there are the two wind turbine blade making companies AND the work being done at INL AND the two windfarms being installed out in the backcountry....

All so Californians can continue to eat loti and elect a Governator...and later retire to Idaho.

The fact that my keyboard produced such a nice round number purely by reason of my talented fingertips tuyping on it kind of proves my point about pregnant paws, now doesn't it?


BTW if you have not seen the film The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, do so.

There was a pregnant paws....


"SAN FRANCISCO (Dow Jones)--Defying a global trend of weak solar demand, owners of homes and businesses in California installed a record 78 megawatts of solar panels in the first quarter of 2009, the California Public Utilities Commission said Friday.

While solar-panel prices have fallen 25% or more, on average, due to a global slowdown in demand, rooftop solar panels remain in high demand in California, the world's third-largest solar market, the CPUC data show.

The strength of California's solar market is due largely to generous state incentives, coupled with federal tax credits that greatly reduce the cost of installation and the fact that California has among the highest utility rates in the nation, making self-generated solar power competitive with conventional utility power, especially for large users.

The state is spending $3.3 billion to install 3,000 megawatts of solar panels over 10 years.

In a quarterly report on a solar rebate program it administers, the CPUC cited a recent change in the federal tax code that allows homeowners a larger tax credit for solar installations as a factor driving strength in that market.

Solar rebate applications filed with the CPUC in the first quarter hit a new quarterly record for capacity, at 52 megawatts, since the program started in January 2007, while the number of applications was down compared with the fourth quarter, the CPUC said."




Hey, Rapaire--how many Megawatts is Pocatello laying in?

I've walked the levees of the Mighty Mississippi when the water was so high the levees trembled like jello when you walked on them. I've been in a flash flood. My experiences with floods are comprehensive and international.

A flood's a flood. You cannot have a "nonflood flood" anymore than you can be "a little bit pregnant."

That's for the condition between the time it starts being in flood and the time it starts being a flood. Seems obvious once you know the secret.

Ladies and Gentleman and Amos:

I give you, from a weather watch statement currently in effect for the Snake River Valley, this statement:

* Nonflood flooding is possible.

Thank you for your attention to this...informative...piece of information.

I tried to press out the wrinkles in my brother once, but my mom caught me and took away the iron just as it reached the right temperature. It woke him up, too.

This is a kid who has had horrible performance anxiety for years, but did great at the open dress rehearsal. I'm proud of him!

A 17-year-old girl bit one San Diego police officer on the arm and stabbed another in the face with a pen in an attempt Wednesday night to keep them from arresting her father, police said.

The officers had gone to a home in the Lake Murray neighborhood to arrest the father on a warrant for assault with a deadly weapon. As they were handcuffing him, his daughter went into a rage and attacked the officers, police said.

Police used a Taser gun to subdue the girl, who was then taken to Juvenile Hall. Her father is in the downtown jail, and the officers received medical treatment, police said.




Come all ye local heros,
Who wear the badge and blue
Who fight all San Digo crimes
No matter where or who,
And take ye all fair warning,
Your lesson take from this;
Don't mess with a man who has a lass
Who's likely to get pissed.

Yodelaayyyy yodelaaiiii yodelooooo

Donuel, I've run into that problem repeatedly, and it's infuriating! I think it's the key with the "windows" symbol on it that's between the Ctrl and Alt keys at the lower left corner of the keyboard. Or it may be the Ctrl or the Alt key. Anyway, my little finger accidentally hits whichever damn key it is, when I'm meaning instead to hit the Shift key, and all my writing vanishes!

One needs to very carefully govern that left little finger to prevent this from occurring.

"Some years ago, I came across a Thomas Carlyle quote that could serve as the solipsist's definitive credo: "Let me have my own way in exactly everything and a sunnier and pleasanter creature does not exist.""

As the subject of solipsism was recently resurrected (even though it has been grossly overplayed on this thread)I thought I might mention it.

Amos, you're quite right. My dear old silver-haired mother used to say, "Don't speak ill of the dead, whether they're physically dead or only mentally dead. If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all."

And so, regarding Shame McBride, "the rest is silence."

The following poem is very touching. Although the names have been changed for poetical and legal reasons you can take my word for it that it is about Shame McBride:

There was a young man named Van Horn
Who wished that he'd never been born,
And he wouldn't have been
If his father had seen
That the end of the rubber was torn.


Kinda tugs on the old heart strings, doesn't it?
