Pouring rain in the sunshine on the farm. We spot a rainbow and one of the kids hops on the golf cart to find the gold at the end. She is my pot of gold. Lucky me.

For the record July was the wettest ever. We had upwards of 14 inches of measurable rain on the farm. The corn remains good with no water damage- the apples on the other hand not looking so good.

Being a farmer does not preclude us from having a pool. Had to syphon water out, then days later run the hose to fill it up from evaporation in the summer sun. Broke down and put the air conditioning on for 3 days as we had house guests, and the pool heater was on. Go figure.

Windows open and a nice breeze,
a/c off! Sadly counting days til school and missing my kids. And, no one hates homework more than a parent with busy kids on the farm and sports.

On a political note- too many “phony” scandals is bullcrap. 4 dead, how is that phony? IRS, NSA, F&F. How people voted O in a 2nd time is beyond comprehension. We pray for USA and our Prez to be forthcoming in truth to the allegiance to the patriots in America.

Oh, and a new litter of kittens yday! Meow.

Right now there is calm before the storm on the farm, but it’s not going to last long by the looks of the sky. Rumbling noises abound and a wallop of a thunderstorm is imminent.

We need the rain though, May has brought only one inch so far. Much to our dismay weather forecast is calling for a chance of frost. The other farms have one inch high corn and while we’ve held off planting, they have to be nervous. Our fruit trees are blooming and flower beds planted. Pray no frost!

Can’t imagine those folks in Oklahoma what the sky must have looked like. Might head to the basement just in case. Stay safe friends.

Global Warming my ass.  56 degrees this morning with another couple of inches of rain to go with the 14 inches we got last week here in FEMA Zone 5.   What happened to summer and hot and humid days?  How many years will I have to watch The God Father movie reruns inside on the 4th of July?

Have all those x marks the spot chemtrails in the sky finally caught up with us mere planetary inhabitants? 

Region V is the second most populated of the 10 FEMA regions serving more than 49 million people. The region’s most common challenges are floods, tornadoes, blizzards, and earthquakes. It also has the highest volume of shipped hazardous materials of all 10 FEMA regions, and is home to 16 of the nation’s nuclear power plants which, reside in five of the six of Region V states.  http://www.fema.gov/about/regions/regionv/index.shtm

It’s just cold and rainy and it sucks.  To top it off,  We the People are being held hostage to another piece of crap legislation, the House crap-and-trade energy bill.

I woke up on the right side of the bed today, and put my furnace on while the pool heater is on at the same time.  The washing machine and dryer are running, the stove is on, and so are all my lamps because it is so dark from the overcast sky.  Can’t wait to see how many carbon credits we spend and use today.

Released today. Four independent scientists respond in detail to the evidence that government scientists claim shows that carbon dioxide causes significant global warming. The real debate continues. After the return fire from the skeptical experts, there was not a single point left standing.

“Our conclusions are:

  1. that whilst recent increases in greenhouse gases play a minor radiative role in global climate, no strong evidence exists that human carbon dioxide emissions are causing, or are likely to cause, dangerous global warming;
  2. that it is unwise for government environmental policy to be set based upon monopoly advice, and especially so when what monopoly is represented by an international political (not scientific) agency; and
  3. that the results of implementing emissions trading legislation will be so costly, troublingly regressive, socially divisive and environmentally ineffective that Parliament should defer consideration of the CPRS bill and institute a fully independent Royal Commission of enquiry into the evidence for and against a dangerous human influence on climate.
  4. We add, with respect to point 3 that the scientific community is now so polarized on the controversial issue of dangerous global warming that proper due diligence on the matter can only be achieved where competent scientific witnesses are cross-examined under oath and under strict rules of evidence.
