Good Morning rasmataz,
I learn something new every day, your garage sale procedure.

I do hope you get your rain. So many areas of the country or so dry and then this morning I heard about flooding in Nevada.

Today is National Lasagna Day.

Lasagna, a wide flat pasta, is possibly one of the oldest pasta’s that there and is also a dish made with this type of pasta in several layers interspersed with layers of various ingredients and sauces.

* The origin of lasagna is debated with varying theories.

* Originally the word “lasagna” referred to the pot in which the dish was cooked rather than the food itself as it does today.

* Lasagna was featured in a 14th century England cookbook.

* Cartoon character Garfield’s favorite food is
lasagna.

Happy National Lasagna Day!

TT - the permit is $7 and you can have 2 garage/yard sales per year. My daughter wants to try again in the fall when it is cooler.

Did not wash vehicles nor home this weekend, but we should be getting some rain in a couple of days, which is kind of rare for July in Oklahoma, but this will be the second round this month with rain. Will probably bring us out of or almost out of the drought we have been in the last few years. It will at least help to moderate it.

Good Morning rasmataz,
You need a permit? How much is that?

You're only the 2nd person to mention the ins. company. I did notice it.

Did anyone wash their vehicle this weekend?

Maybe it was time to power wash your home. Did anyone do that?

It was warm here so this is how I took advantage of it.

I have something to give each of you. You know that when you get a new vehicle and I am aware of it I leave you a bottle of my special TUrtLE Wax. In case you've used it up, I have a bottle of TUrtLE Wax for each of you.

Have a Marvelous Monday!

TT - haven't counted all the change yet, but we made about $50 minus the permit and the water and ice we bought - we thought some people might want to buy a cold bottle of water, too, but no one did. We had cold water to drink while sitting in the heat, though.

Interesting movie for today, seemed to be an insurance company commercial at the end, but was still good.

Do you have an update on the yard sale?

You all know about Random Acts of Kindness. That's what comes to mind as I viewed today's movie. It comes from the website entitled, Thaigoodstories.com - Believe in good.
The video starts right in without an introduction so be ready.

Good Morning rasmataz,
Photo of begonias from Kim Carlson, posted on the County web site.

Do you not live in a neighborhood or in an area with very much traffic? I would hope the weekend will bring more folks out.

Continuing:
I have more blonde jokes that I will share, but there may be a brief hiatus.
------

One day, while a blonde was out driving her car, she ran into a truck.
The truck's driver made her pull over into a parking lot and get out of the car.

He took a piece of chalk and drew a circle on the pavement. He told her to stand in the middle and not leave the circle.

Furious, he went over to her car and slashed the tires.

The blonde started laughing.

This made the man angrier so he smashed her windshield.

This time the blonde laughed even harder.

Livid, the man broke all her windows and keyed her car.

The blonde is now laughing hysterically, so the truck driver asks her what's so funny.

The blonde giggles and replies, "When you weren't looking, I stepped out of the circle three times!"

Have a Fantastic Friday!

End of the day photo taken by Dan Wollin.

Reminder that it is a private web site. Today's pic was taken not far from where I live.

May the yard sale be very successful. Good for your daughter.

Continuing:

An overweight blonde went to see her doctor for some advice. The doctor advised that she run ten miles a day for thirty days. This, he promised, would help her lose as many as twenty pounds. The blonde followed the doctor's advice, and, after thirty days, she was pleased to find that she had indeed lost the whole twenty pounds. She phoned the doctor and thanked him for the wonderful advice which produced such effective results. At the end of the conversation, however, she asked one last question: "How do I get home, since I am now 300 miles away?"

Have a Thankful Thursday!

Thanks for responding to my Q's. Is that what you do now, apply on line? It's a whole different world out there.

Continuing:

A blonde and a brunette are skydiving.

The brunette jumps out the plane and pulls the cord -- nothing happens.

She pulls the emergency cord and still nothing.

The blonde finally jumps out of the plane and yells "Oh! So you wanna race, huh?"

Have a wild and wonderful Wednesday!

Good morning rasmataz,
I'll pray that you are able to find a new job. How is the job market in your area?

Continuing:

During late spring one year, a blonde was trying out her new boat. She was unable to have her boat perform, travel through water, or do any maneuvers whatsoever no matter how hard she tried.

After trying for over three days to make it work properly, she decided to seek help. She putted the boat over to the local marina in hopes that someone there could identify her problem.

Workers determined that everything from the engine to the outdrive was working perfectly on the topside of the boat. So, a puzzled marina employee jumped into the water to check underneath the boat for problems. Because he was laughing so hard, he came up choking on water and gasping for air. Under the boat, still strapped in place securely, was the trailer.

Enjoy a Terrific Tuesday!

Where did I miss that you were laid off? I scrolled back but I don't see it? Is it temporary? Thanks for the adtl info.

I'll come back to read about Rich, thanks.

Blonde jokes this week.
I chose ones that I haven't heard.

Two blondes had driven across the country to see Disney World in Florida.

As they approached it and got onto the final stretch of highway, they saw a sign saying "Disney World Left!"

After thinking for a minute, the driver blonde said "Oh well!" and started driving back home.

Happy Monday!

TT - yes, I did see your birthday greetings. My apologies for not acknowledging them. I, of course, was not working, since I have been laid off. Spent most of the day around the house. It had been nice and cool in OKC for several days and even the AC was off. We went to see a free showing of the movie "God's Not Dead" at a local church on Friday night. Had a special lunch the next day (Saturday) because we did not have time for it the night before.

Here is some information from Wikipedia about Rich Mullins. You may know the song "Awesome God" that he wrote. I really like his music. He was killed in a car accident in 1997.

ohyeah - that sounds like a really good deal for you, enjoy the new car.

Good Morning rasmataz,
Did you see your birthday greetings?
What did you do to celebrate?

Your Sunday Movie is, Ready For The Storm, based on a song by the same name which was written and performed by Rich Mullins, a Christian Rock singer from the eighties and the nineties, according to Steve Politte.

There is no text except the final frame so you can listen to the words and watch the graphics without having to read text.

I know you're going like this one.

Good Afternoon!

Well, last Saturday I decided to go and see what my Hyundai dealer was talking about... I have been getting emails and phone calls from the dealership... "We need your used Hyundai Elantra... Demand is HUGE... Bring it in and buy a new one!"

I took my little red Hyundai Elantra in and let them see what see what they could do. Now mind you, I have only had the car for 3 years and 17 days... I am in a brand new Elantra Limited (the old on was just a plain Elantra). It now has leather interior, 8 way power seats, heated seats, including the back seats (I guess they don't want my butt to get cold!), premium sound system, the coolest wheel covers, and lots lots more for (are you ready for this...) only $29 more per month!!! And, the length of the contract remained the same!!!! They gave me $2,000 OVER the buy out for my little red Hyundai!!! I got a BRAND NEW 2014 Sparking Silver Elantra!!!

I REALLY feel like I did well!!!! What do you think???

OKC is sprawled out in at least 3 counties, plus surrounding some other cities / towns. The OKC police department handles the crossing guard program for the whole metro area.

Good Morning rasmataz,
I'm assuming that OKC is you, right? If so, what do the kids think of it. How about you?

Note that I probably won't be stopping here till Sunday, busy on Friday and gone on Saturday. You can catch me in TL.

Once again photos and captions are taken from the county web site.

"When it comes to walking or flying, we de-Murre to the bird…"

The Murre is pretending he doesn’t notice Ken Gagne taking his picture…

The Murre awakens and shows Mr.
Gagne champion flying form…

Lesson over... the Murre saunters back down to the beach.

Want to know a little more about Murres in Oregon?

Male and female Common Murres look alike with a distinctive dark, slender bill and a black-and-white color pattern that makes many people mistake them for penguins.

The murre population in Oregon is estimated to be 250,000, representing approximately 60% of all seabirds that nest within the state’s boundaries. In Oregon, there are 24 known nesting sites which support this dense population. When feeding, Common Murres form large rafts where they dive from the surface and “fly” underwater in pursuit of small fishes. They can stay submerged for an average of sixty seconds and have been known to dive to depths of 400 feet to snap up squid and fish with their sharp bills.

...and know you know.

Happy Thursday!

TT - that is a smart heron to get out of the way.

Still seems early for school to start for me, too. OKC went to "year-round" school a few years ago, starts first part of August and goes until end of May or first part of June. There are 2 weeks in the fall, 3 weeks at Christmas, and 2 wings in the spring for breaks on that schedule, so the amount of time in school is still the same as before. Other school districts in the area didn't do that so start later in August.

Good Morning rasmataz,
For some the video played just fine, for others, not.

Today I will introduce you to the Devil's Punchbowl located on the central Oregon coast.

From the county web site, "Central Coast Photographer Kerry Terrel decided she was going to go into a dark and dank place to capture and then bring a great picture for all of us to enjoy. She decided that place would be Devil’s Punchbowl at Otter Crest, beneath the mighty Cape Foulweather. At just about low tide, clutching her camera and her courage, Kerry scampered down the trail to the entrance to the punchbowl’s inner sanctum. And here’s what she brought back!"

The descriptions are also taken from the website.

Knowin' where you are goin' and you take a deep breath!

Canyons of wave water pounding and sand grinding over the eons…

And here we are, the punchbowl that few people have seen from this vantage point.

There is a lot to see and do along the Oregon coast.

Good Morning rasmataz,
Not that I know of. The cherries come from WA state.
They do sell the Rainier ones here, but the supply is limited and very expensive. The red ones are $1.99 lb this week.

Your Sunday movie is, A Touch Of Love. The music is entitled, "I Give You My Love," performed by BJ Morbitzer.

From the web site written by Steve Politte, "This is a video that speaks about love, the kind of love that most everyone needs and deserves to have, a love for a friend, a love to be compassionate, a love that brings comfort to others. Love is never self centered, it is to be given freely from our hearts, as that is how it comes to us from God.

Every year on July 11th cherry enthusiasts across the U.S. celebrate the Rainier cherry variety. This golden colored cherry with a red blush is a specialty variety that was born in Washington State as a cross between – believe it or not – two red cherry varieties!

Here is a handful of cherries picked especially for YOU.

Today's photo is from Julie Sacchetti.

Good Morning rasmataz,
Great that you could enjoy them as a family, and yes you do have to go early to an event like that. How was traffic when you left?

Do you enjoy the Maranatha singers? I have been listening to a number of their selections on youtube. Sure beats TV. My favorite, "In Your Time."

Concluding our Independence Day Tribute with God Bless the USA. The music is the song of the same name sung by Lee Greenwood.

An added bonus for those who would like to listen, My Peace, performed by the Maranatha Singers.

TT - went to a fireworks show in Edmond, OK, a suburb north of OKC. Had a good time, we went a little early to get a spot and played a game of Spades while we waited.

Early morning work today, get off at 0600 and have to be back at 11 PM (2300) for my Sunday shift.

Good Morning rasmataz,

A video commemorating the 4th of July is, "Our Independence Day," by Brenda Pike Clark.

Then join hand in hand, brave Americans all!
By uniting we stand, by dividing we fall.

I like that quote about liberty for souls.

Good Morning rasmataz,
I hope that the transition with your new boss goes smoothly.

It's not long now until the 4th of July, Independence Day.

We on this continent should never forget that men first crossed the Atlantic not to find soil for their ploughs but to secure liberty for their souls.

TT - yes, I am off for the 4th, but have to go in at 0230 on the 5th and work until 0600. Was a little more productive today at work. However, found out that my boss has turned in her notice and her last day is 7/11 next week. Right now we will report directly to her boss, but am pretty sure that will change, just don't know when or to whom it will be.

Good Morning rasmataz,
Yes, hopefully. You're off on the 4th aren't you?

Good Morning rasmataz,

It's not long now until the 4th of July, Independence Day.

Freedom has its life in the hearts, the actions, the spirit of men and so it must be daily earned and refreshed - else like a flower cut from its life-giving roots, it will wither and die.

TT - I will check out the BD cake in a few minutes. Speaking of birthdays, my wife has one tomorrow. However, my daughter is also having her wisdom teeth out in the morning, so it will not be as celebratory as usual. We both have the day off, but I may go to work for half a day afterward.
