Man it's hot. I'm not complaining! It is just so hot. Even at 9:30 at night, the air is so hot and humid. Plus 30 Celsius. I do love summer. I am experiencing so much stress at work that I have been forced to take a stress leave. Yesterday I went with my mom and granny to the valley . (Granny is visiting from B.C) where dad is cooking for summer campers. He invited us out for a turkey dinner during the lunch time. I enjoyed it very much. It was so peaceful to just sit and look out at God's creation. It was hot but there was a nice breeze blowing so it was not unbearable. The time away from work was so what I needed to forget about the strife and focus on the beauty surrounding me. I am thankful for the time I was able to spend out in nature and enjoy the beautiful landscape and summer weather. It made me forget the strife at work. I must say it was wonderful.

Two doctors opened an office in a small town and put up a sign reading"Dr. Smith and Dr. Jones, Psychiatry and Proctology."The town council was not happy with the sign, so the doctors changed it to"Hysterias and Posteriors."
This was not acceptable either, so in an effort to satisfy the council they changed the sign to"Schizoids and Hemorrhoids."No go.
Next, they tried"Catatonics and High Colonics."Thumbs down again.
Then came"Manic Depressives and Anal Retentives."Still not good.
Another attempt resulted in"Minds and Behinds."Unacceptable again.
"Analysis and Anal Cysts?"Nope.
"Nuts and Butts?"Uh uh.
"Freaks and Cheeks?"Still no go.
"Loons and Moons?"Forget it.
Almost at their wit's end, the doctors finally came up with:" Dr Smith and Dr. Jones, Odds and Ends."
And the town loved it.

Tonight I sat out on my balcony enjoying the gorgeous summer night. I looked in the blue sky and caught a glimpse of a bird soaring over head. For one brief moment I wished that I was a bird. Oh to fly free with out a care. What would that be like? To have wings to just fly away from all the cares of the world. The wind catching my wings and lifting me high above the clouds, up towards the heavens. In the middle of my day dream, my eye caught sight of a fluttering moth. One that I am familiar with as it has been twitting from leaf to leaf on my tree outside for days now. It doesn't appear to know where it's going. It flies between leaves softly touching down , then off it goes in an instant. I think the moth is lost, trying to find a place to land. I relate more to the moth than the bird soaring. In my heart I know the answer. I know how to become a soaring bird and not a fluttering moth. It's just the journey that I find so difficult.

For weeks now the TV has been advertising this great music concert , with fantastic music stars, to promote our world in crisis. Al Gore is at the fore front of it. A great cause this going green. But has no one else asked the question on how much energy it takes to put all the music stars together? How much power does it take to plug in the sound systems, guitars, microphones..... and for all these places all over the
world. And not to mention the media coverage it will receive. As I sat watching yet another plug on TV for this " SOS" "Live Earth concert" I could not help but think about all this! I see
other ads coming forth telling us to save energy by changing our light bulbs, and recycling, and driving environmentally friendly cars, or taking the bus, and Go green world. I mean really. So this message that Gore is trying to get across is a great one, I feel he is going about all wrong.With all these concerts all across the world you and I know that energy is not being saved one bit. Am I the only one to think about this? Am I totally out to lunch here thinking that all this effort and energy is so not the right way to grab peoples attention? I find it so much an opposite of what the world( Al Gore ) is trying to prove. I'm all in favor of going green. There has to be a better ,more energy efficient way to getting that message across.

I'm just busting a gut right now. I don't mean to be disrespectful, but I just heard the news tonight. It was a report on Al Gores son being arrested for the possession of drugs and other substances. That was too bad. That's not what I'm laughing at. For anyone who does not know who Al Gore is, he is the ex Us vice president and is now on a campaign against global warming. A very good cause! The news report that made me laugh was, "Al Gores son was arrested on the possession of drugs , but he was driving a hybrid, environmentally friendly vehicle. " That is what made me crack up. What an oxy moron. Sorry I do feel bad for Al Gores son. After all We all make mistakes. Sometimes the media does take snippets of stuff and run with it. When I heard the report it did give me a giggle the way it was worded. I only wish the best for the son of Al Gore.
