Az here in Minnesota you can contact city hall for health hazards and unsightly garbage in yards. Look on your city web site to see what is allowed.

Have you ever found yourself laughing at practically everything just because of the ridiculousness of a situation?

So much better than being angry or sad.

Laugh and the world laughs with you; cry and you cry alone.

Don't know who said that first.

I took a friend from Florida to see NYC yesterday. He hadn't been there in 20 years. He always wanted to see the Frick Museum, so that was our first priority. We accomplished so much in the 14 or 15 hours we were up there: we visited the 9/11 memorial, the brand new "Occulus" transportation hub at the World Trade Center, Chinatown, midtown and Rockefeller Center, Central Park.

Although New York is the city of my birth I always get a feeling of being a little overwhelmed and alienation when I'm up there nowadays. I like big cities and I don't get that same feeling in Chicago or Boston or Baltimore or Washington or Miami ... and certainly not here in Philly. New York is just so crowded and expensive. It's not just the millions of people living there but the tourists, the daytrippers (like me!), etc. There are crowds even in the most unlikely places and the subway system is fine - much cleaner than it was years ago - but the stairs getting down there are steep and the wait for your train is noticeably longer and unpleasant than here in Philly.

Does anyone know if Yac is here or gone? Sent him a message for help and have not heard back.

But I'm leaving tomorrow (Monday) so maybe I just need to be more patient.

I do. I wonder at times how most people manage to get through the day without exploding. Just amazing.

Wow,it is really storming out tonight. Thunder and lightening and a whole bunch of rain. Thought it was going to miss us but it hasn't. I think the tornadoes did though. Haven't heard otherwise.

I personally like storms, but not tornadoes.

Much cooler here, some off and on rain, and snow in the mountains south of me. Leaves are starting to turn a bit. Great trout fishing weather!

Still very hot here. It hit 90 again.

Did I hear something about a tropical storm or hurricane brewing in the Gulf of Mexico?

92 here, which is considered mild for Texas in late August.

Hurricane watch for FL Gulf Coast.
