Pres. Obama Loves to Jog…And Jog…And Jog

Wherever he travels, wherever he goes


He jogs in large groups


He jogs alone


He jogs while he’s happy


Jogging is one of his favorite passions


He jogs near bales and bales of hay


And he jogs with dogs

      Been trying to say “Hi” and Congrats using WordPress. I finally realized I can sign in with Twitter. I did send you a tweet (couldn’t remember Chip’s email address) to let you know WordPress is not working for me. I don’t know if anyone else is having the problem. Yesterday, it worked for a while, but today not at all. BTW, just disregard my tweet 🙂

        WordPress has been horrible to me for about a week now. Sometimes it let’s me post, sometimes not. I have started the habit of copying all my comments before I try to post because there is no retrieving a lost comment once it’s gone. I am usually able to post on about my third attempt.

    So this has been my weekend:

    Yesterday bought a couple of toys at Lowe’s. Took the puppy for a ride to pick up dinner. Bought some car washing supplies. Had a couple of margaritas.

    Today: Woke up. Had breakfast. Watched the Hungarian Grand Prix. Watched the Gold Cup final (USA! USA!). Bought provisions for dinner for the next two nights. Hung out on the front porch with the missus and the pup, which imbibing a wonderful Malbec.

    If only every weekend could be so.

    And so, for tonight’s menu:

    Dry rubbed pork loin chops, pan seared and then roasted in the oven
    A vegetable succotash of corn, zucchini, and red pepper

        That’s in NW AZ…they are getting lots of rain up north…we had our big rains last weekend. Dry here now…but literally had a raging river with whitecaps on the street in front of my house last weekend!

        Anyway, local news here says that those passengers are all ok.


        A group of tourists on their way back from visiting Skywalk at the Grand Canyon had one heck of an adventure when the bus they were on got caught in a flash flood.

        A spokesman for the Northern Arizona Consolidated Fire District said it happened just before 2 p.m. Sunday about 30 miles north of Kingman.

        Patrick Moore said all 33 people on board made it to safety.

    Been spending all weekend reading books and just doing absolutely nothing. Today my sister decided to come over and we watched movies for the majority of the afternoon/evening.

    Just found out that the morning DJ I listened to on my morning drive in DFW dies right here in NOLA yesterday of an apparent brain aneurysm??

    The five things Don Lemon talk about, I agree. I don’t like to see these young boys with their pants hanging down showing their underwear and walking like they have something stuck in the butt, Stop the use of the “N” word, graduate high school, stop having babies out of wedlock, and littering. I didn’t agree with him about Bill O’Rielly though.

    • July 29, 2013 at 5:33 am

      It is no just young black boys who wear their pants down…it is a young men’s thing…part of the hip hop culture…but the point being…is the Lemon has joined the radial right in piling on young black men…but coming from Lemon…are we surprise at his criticism

        When education fully covers contraception and young people are taught something other than abstinence – maybe there will be less babies to young single parents – but the “out of wedlock” – by whose rules & for what standards. There have been a large % of children born “out of wedlock” since forever. Treating women badly because they were pregnant outside of marriage was the method used by the church to control women – the GOP follows much of the ways of the churches of past centuries. In times past it was difficult for women to survive without a male to support them – not so much today.

        My daughter is a single parent – it is a path she chose – probably not one I would have chosen, but I was raised in different times and different circumstances. I respect her right to choose. It is also something that happens to people of all races – all colors – and is not restricted to US minorities.

    Would you believe this was written two years – 24 months – ago and the #GOP are still standing in the path trying to prevent any #FORWARD movement! The more things change, the more they remain the same. 🙄

    Joe Klein (Time): Let us not put too fine a point on it: Thursday’s House vote on Speaker John Boehner’s debt ceiling proposal is a joke. If it passes the House, Harry Reid has said it is dead on arrival in the Senate. If it somehow passes the Senate, which it won’t, President Obama will veto it. It is, therefore, a symbolic act that is wasting precious time. It follows last week’s Republican theatrics, the passage of the Cut and Demolish Act (or whatever they called it), which also was a waste of time. These are the actions of a party that has completely lost track of reality – and of a leader, John Boehner, who has lost the support of his party.

    …. This has been an exhausting process – one that might have resulted in an exhilarating triumph, if the Republican party were not led by nihilists like Rush Limbaugh and Grover Norquist.



    • 48 anniebella
      July 28, 2013 at 10:59 pm

      It seem to me that John Boehner is just concern about being call Speaker. Because anyone else with any darn sense when history look back at them would want it to show that they accomplish something, something that made people lives better. When history look back at Boehner it will show what a joke he is, it will show that he was a sorry Speaker of the House. That he held onto the job just to say he was speaker. What a disgrace John Boehner is.

      • 49 vcprezofan2
        July 28, 2013 at 11:09 pm

        Annieb, there have been moments when I seriously believe that Boehner hasn’t a real clue what his job entails, other than he has a huge gavel (matters not how long he has been in Congress). In every sit-down interview I’ve seen him he looks unsure and bumbling. I’ve never seen him show confidence. The ‘poor’ man is out of his depths IMO.

I still have her VCR recordings with her illegible handwriting on the labels! She loved all kinds of music, and these concerts remind me of her. 🙂

When I got back, I saw these. So beautiful.

                  Love Ms. Briggs and Yanni. You all do realize that we have such a beautiful space here where so many times we are thinking the same thoughts. It is so beautiful in our space here. Give me music and beautiful poetry anytime. Thanks so much jacquelineO and Dudette.

    James Baldwin Tells Us All How to Cool It This Summer

    Is it too late, now, to put out the fire this time? An interview, forty-five years later.

    By The Editors of Esquire Magazine

    In Esquire’s July 1968 issue, published just after the death of Martin Luther King, Jr., the magazine talked to James Baldwin about the state of race relations in the country. In light of the Trayvon Martin case, we’ve republished the interview in full below.

    Q. How can we get the black people to cool it?

    James Baldwin: It is not for us to cool it.

    (Reuters) – Amazon.com Inc shares hit a record on Friday after quarterly results increased optimism about the Internet retailer’s U.S. business.

    The company reported a second-quarter net loss and weaker international growth on Thursday. However, its domestic business expanded quickly and profit in the region improved.

    “Their biggest market looks really healthy,” said Matt Nemer, an analyst at Wells Fargo.

    And this:

    (Reuters) – Amazon.com Inc unveiled a new hiring spree on Monday ahead of a visit by President Barack Obama to one of the Internet retailer’s giant distribution warehouses this week.

    Amazon said it is looking to fill more than 5,000 new full-time jobs at 17 of its fulfillment centers across the United States. That’s roughly a 25 percent increase in full-time fulfillment center staff, which currently number more than 20,000 in the country.

    Amazon has been building lots of new fulfillment centers closer to customers in recent years as the company tries to speed up delivery of online orders and reduce shipping costs.


    Happy Monday!

    Gas prices are $0:04 down…..wow. But Crude is nearly $108 plus. Hmm?

    Consumer index is up. Jobs being created at 200K plus monthly, but the GDP is just at 1.5%? 10K baby boomers retire daily, many state jobs are not new firings, but retirees and yet the UE is at 7.6%?

    WOW! http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-07-28/heart-surgery-in-india-for-1-583-costs-106-385-in-u-s-.html

    Devi Shetty is obsessed with making heart surgery affordable for millions of Indians. On his office desk are photographs of two of his heroes: Mother Teresa and Mahatma Gandhi.

    Shetty is not a public health official motivated by charity. He’s a heart surgeon turned businessman who has started a chain of 21 medical centers around India. By trimming costs with such measures as buying cheaper scrubs and spurning air-conditioning, he has cut the price of artery-clearing coronary bypass surgery to 95,000 rupees ($1,583), half of what it was 20 years ago, and wants to get the price down to $800 within a decade. The same procedure costs $106,385 at Ohio’s Cleveland Clinic, according to data from the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.
    “It shows that costs can be substantially contained,” said Srinath Reddy, president of the Geneva-based World Heart Federation, of Shetty’s approach. “It’s possible to deliver very high quality cardiac care at a relatively low cost.”

    Medical experts like Reddy are watching closely, eager to see if Shetty’s driven cost-cutting can point the way for hospitals to boost revenue on a wider scale by making life-saving heart operations more accessible to potentially millions of people in India and other developing countries.
