The Green Hornet Trailer

I don't know if it is going to be any good. From the trailer it looks as if it will be successful. At least with the 13 to 18 year old crowd. The Greeen Hornet was one of my favorites from my childhood. I couldn't wait for the TV show to come on each week just so I could see Kato (Bruce Lee) kick someone in the face.

I'm On A Boat!

BP chief executive Tony Hayward, often criticized for being tone-deaf to U.S. concerns about the worst oil spill in American history, took time off Saturday to attend a glitzy yacht race off England’s Isle of Wight.

I guess he got his life back.

Well, The Weekend Is Upon Us...

Now, the real work begins.

By now you have probably seen this video on the news or the internets, but here it is again.

Have a great weekend and try to stay cool. It's going to be a hot one.

I've Got To Get Back To Work To Get Some Rest

I cleaned out the shed for the second time this year. It had gotten to the point that I had to climb over things to get what I needed out of there. Then I mowed the lawn, took a swim and went for a walk. That was Saturday.

Sunday my daughter's Volvo A/C quit. I worked on that all morning. Still haven't figured it out. The A/C is kicking in but the blower isn't coming on. Blower doesn't work on heat either. I'll get it eventually.

We are in the middle of having our house painted so today I took the front porch lights down. My wife painted them and I moved them to the back porch. We replaced those lights with ones my wife bought Saturday.

On inspection of the columns on the front porch I can see a lot of what looks like alligator or reticulating in the finish. So, I have started stripping them by use of a heat gun and scraper. I got one side of two columns done. There are 8 columns in all. This might take a while.

Man, It's Hot Out There!

11 o'clock pm and it's still 80 degrees here. This weekend it will be up to 99 degrees without the heat index. And summer won't be here for 10 more days.

I guess Al Gore was right after all.
