Floods And Bad News Everywhere

June 14, 2010

It's a cloudy gray morning, and about 60 degrees here. But the weatherman assures us that as the day goes on, it will clear up and get about 18 degrees warmer. That would be nice, especially later when it is time for me to go home.

Not much is happening here. I've been watching the news and it is so depressing. There are so many really weird storms happening with more floods and people dying. Not the kind of thing you want to hear day after day, but if you insist on burying your head in the sand the world will just go on by without you. You sort of can't win for losing!!

I will be joining up with a really neat blog train for the beginning of July, but I will give you more details on that as the time comes closer. The only hint I can offer is that it will have to do with the July holiday.

I'm watching scenes on television of some of the damage in Alabama from the oil spill, and it is disgusting. With all of today's technology, you would think that a lot of that oil spill should have been cleared up by now. It just doesn't seem to me as though they are doing much of anything to solve the problem and stop the damage that is being done to our environment.

Mr Obama seems happy just to be hopping around and talking about it. He doesn't seem to have what it takes to get anything done NOW. Does he realize that actions speak louder than words? He seems to have lots of words, but it would be nice to see some immediate action.

That's enough ranting. I have some photos to share with you today. This first photo is lily leaves in the rain. I really love trying to capture the raindrops on leaves. Sometimes I get lucky and the photos come out pretty good.



These next two photos are of a really gorgeous rose colored hydrangea. I don't think I ever saw one this color. Makes you realize just how awesome nature really is.
Well, the Mrs. is waking now so I have to get back to work. She will be wanting her breakfast soon. Till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantastic day.
