Larry, I'm not sure James has ever played golf, but just got interested in it - like me.  He has recently taken a job doing something at a golf course and I don't know what.  I think it is in some management area.  I was glad the game was something we could share Sunday.  It wasn't the weather that kept me from getting the mail yesterday, I just plain forgot.  One of us will get it this morning, I am sure.  We have an Applebee's near here and we sometimes go there.  I like their food, but if we go in the evening (seldom), it is noisy.  Noontime can be noisy too.

At 10 am it is 70 degrees and will get into the 80s - not bad.  I think we will get some rain, maybe even a storm.

Bubble, should I look out my window, at fog and rain? Or should I look at your terrific photos and wish I was there? Hmmm, such a hard decision.  :-\   ::)

maryz we have a mimosa by the back steps  , I wait patiently every year for it to bloom & attract the hummingbirds .  The tree is 44 years old & still going strong .  We had a Mulberry tree that was planted by the birds & had it cut down . It was a good shade tree but the berries got tracked into the house & it made a mess .

Hi Everyone.  We are headed to 98 degrees with high humidity this afternoon.  I am meeting a friend for lunch around 11:30 this morning and beyond that plan to stay home and in where it is cool the rest of the day.  I just fixed Pat's breakfast and have the other kitchen work done for this morning.

Sandy, when I found out the area where we live is on the 6th most active earthquake fault I decided it would be money well spent so added earthquake coverage to my insurance.  Just like fire and other insurances I will be most happy to spend the money and never have to collect on it because of some type of disaster. 

Jane, Pat has found that the canned yams work just as well as dealing with cooking and mashing sweet potatoes.  Hope your casserole turned out well.  I see that  you got the mirror replaced yesterday on your car as planned.  Those mirrors are so important for safe driving.  We are waiting for the peaches the lady at Church Sunday gave me to ripen up.  They sure have been good this year even though they are not freestone.  I know the men of our Church have a wild meat dinner once a year.  However, that is not my thing.  To my knowledge none of the markets around here sell venison but there a dear hunting season. 

Shirley, we were always required to clean our plates and at least have a little of whatever Mother fixed for meals.  Unfortunately that trait carried over to adulthood.  My dad was also a meat and potatoes guy but always like to have something sweet to end the meal.  There is probably a function key on your laptop keyboard that will turn off your touch pad as that is most likely the cause of your curser hopping all around. Do a Google search on the problem identifying your particular model of laptop and you will probably find instructions for turning it off.  If you don't then call the technical support people at the company making the computer and ask them how to do it. I expect most of us with laptops have experienced the same problem as we unknowingly touch the touch pad.  For a long time I just cut out a piece of cardboard and taped it over the touch pad and that also solved the problem.  The Magic Tape comes off easily if I wanted to use the touch pad as I only put it on the sides.   I haven't seen Pat use a cookbook in a long time.  Anymore she finds recipes on the Internet and prints them out.  She does reuse those printed recipes. 

Good morning Peter.  Are you having very hot weather over your way as we are here?

Mary Ann, I think that link you shared on the earthquakes is probably the longest URL I have ever seen.

June, glad you were able to see at least the first half of South Pacific.  It is nice you have theme weeks at your residence as it adds variety and gives the staff different decorating and probably cooking ideas.

Carol, we experienced several earthquakes when we lived in Anchorage including one that rolled the desk chair I was sitting in away from the desk into a bookcase.  We moved to Alaska a couple of years after the big 1960's earthquake there and the evidence of it was still very visible.

Amy, my mother used to can a lot of peaches each year and put them in our fruit cellar and they were so good whenever she would open a jar of them.  The peaches here this year have been outstanding.

Sandy, hope you are staying nice and cool during the hot days you are having.  I looked at the eagles web cam yesterday afternoon and there was only one of the three sitting on the limb.  I didn't know what you shared about the growth of the eagles.  Glad you are happy with your living arrangements now.  Time does cause us to make changes in the way we live our lives and spend our time.  Like you I just try to live life one day at a time and not to worry about tomorrow.

Mary Ann, I expect with those twins and the expense of getting started on the family life that James in Holland doesn't have the time or probably the extra resources to play much golf.  All of my work life I had been paid every two weeks but when I retired the income is only once a month and that took some getting used to.  My mother drove the car but my grandmothers never did. Like you I haven't checked my mailbox in the late afternoon as usual because it has been so hot.  I had a couple of small packages that the mailman brought to the door yesterday afternoon and when I checked the box this morning it was empty.  Unusual not to get at least one catalog to throw away. 

Marilyne, how nice that your son and dil invited you to come and have the Father's Day dinner at their house.  It give you and your daughters extra time to talk and not be in the kitchen.  I bet that salmon was delicious.  We no longer have a grill as where we would have to keep it in the back gets the hot afternoon sun and it iwouldn't be convenient to get things out to it and back in the house.  It sounds like AJ will enjoys some nice quiet if you are resting your vocal cords.  :)

deAngel, we used to go to Applebee's a lot.  I am sure there is one over in Augusta somewhere but we haven't gone there since we moved.  We always got good food there and would often go after Church on Sunday with our lunch group.

Marilyne, I finished Ghost Fleet.... It followed several different tracks with some intersecting and some not. At first i thought it was going to be the first of a series, but no, the author managed to wrap everything up in the epilogue. The characters I most took to were Major Doyle, who led a small guerrilla band throughout the war, and Colonel Vladimir Andreyevich Markov, a Spetsnaz officer tasked with investigating a series of murders.

While it makes a good read, it is flawed as this article I just found points out.

At the bottom of the article the writer does recommend P. W. Singer's nonfiction, Corporate Warriors: The Rise of the Privatized Military Industry. The book has been updated since I first read it. Published about the same time as the original book, is this article (.pdf) for the peer-reviewed academic journal, International Security.

Your husband might be interested in Corporate Warriors... if he hasn't read it yet.
I might take a look at the updated version myself to see how much has changed.
