^ Hardly.  Maybe just your post Wink

Sad I was hoping to upset the delicate balance of this thread Cheesy
Delicate balance?  In this thread?!?  Sometimes it's more like exercises in mental whiplash than any kind of 'delicate balance', I think.  Cheesy Wink

Compared to some of the "same old subject again and again" threads, the "mental whiplash" is a bit stimulating.

For those of us who've been on this site for 5-7 years, I don't think there's too many new subjects to discuss; heck, I've really gone through the subjects, even arguing some issues from both sides. 'Random Postings' is as good as it gets any more. Wink

Maybe we just need to bring "It" back.

Anyone hate the Lakers as much as I do...?  Man...loathing just doesn't cut it anymore. 

I have a general dislike and indifference towards the whole sport, I probably couldn't give you a favourite team. But I know one thing with absolute certainty about basketball, I hate the Lakers.

As someone who lived in Boston for three years, I can see where you're coming from. But as someone who lives three hours from LA and has to deal with way too many Lakes fans (we're also three hours from the Bay Area...why not be Warrior fans? Bay Area teams are so much more likable than LA teams). Heck, when I lived in far northern California, there were more Lakes fans than Kings fans. The Lakers are the Yankees of Basketball...you just have to hate them. Wink

^ I wouldn't call the Lakers the "Yankees" of baseball.  The Celtics have had more success than LA throughout basketball history (and LA has only beaten Boston once in an NBA finals so far).  Plus, we both know how obnoxious Boston fans are/can be Cheesy

There is a small town in Poland called Międzyrzec Podlaski. In 1884 Michał Oksijuk and in 1892 Jan Bekisz were born there. The first one from 1951 to 1959 was known better as HB Makarius of Warsaw and all Poland, the second one from 1970 to 1977 was better know as HB Ireney, the first Primate of the OCA. As for know there is no single Parish in Międzyrzec. Funny, eh?

I suppose due to Catholisation of the Orthodox people there it was merged with the Parish nearby. Two former Orthodox Churches there are now used by RCCs.

Yup!  Grin  Anything beats the heat.

After my original trip to Africa was canned over funding, looks like I will have the chance to head there through another avenue.  I'm just glad all those bloody needles weren't for nothing.  Tongue

So the temperature is going to be a bit lower but the Forces of Humidity are rising up to counter the loss.  We now switch to "Sticky" and "Sweltering" and the sky is more yellowy-gray than blue.

Or am I just crazed with the heat?  It's supposed to be "cooler" tomorrow: 94  wheee

So the temperature is going to be a bit lower but the Forces of Humidity are rising up to counter the loss.  We now switch to "Sticky" and "Sweltering" and the sky is more yellowy-gray than blue.

Bleah.

Sounds like Mississippi weather....

...in June, before it really starts to get hot!  Cheesy

Just for fun, I checked the weather between Jackson, MS and Washington, DC (I know you don't live in DC, Ebor, but I thought it would be close):

Washington, DC:

current temp: 92 expected high 92  relative humidity: 47%

Jackson, MS:

current temp: 91 expected high 94 relative humidity: 57%

I just hope we get our usual afternoon sprinkle; it really helps to cut down the humidity here to the levels that Easterners are complaining about... Wink

Oh things are gearing up here for the rest of July and August.  They're having it a bit easier in DC and Jackson then.  According to the weather report I just saw Annapolis is a balmy 86 with 66% humidity (all of that Chesapeake Bay hanging about in the air) Frederick hit 100.  And we haven't had any rain for over a week, though we have a "chance" of the pretty common late afternoon thunderstorms (which can then knock out electricity if we're unlucky)   Grin 

I hope you do get that sprinkle.  Someone should get it at least.   Smiley

Anyway, I'm from Montana where even if it's 95 it's dry (and the air isn't "chewy").  I've been told by people who were associated with the British embassy in D.C. that before the coming of air conditioning, that station had extra hazardous duty pay for being there in the summer (maybe it was malarial, too)

Adayah, my 6 year old daughter, is fascinated by the jar of change I keep in my study. The other night she asked, "Papa, if you go to Heaven can I have your money jar?" "Sure," I said. So she ran and told her big brothers, "Papa said I can have his jar of money when he goes to Heaven!" To which my 10 year old son replied, "That's mean Adayah! I hope Papa never goes to Heaven!"

How do flies get into my place? How? What do they do, fly in through the ventilation or something? ARGH!

I thought that keeping the cremains of a loved one in your home was rather morbid, but I got used to it after a while, and even miss them now that they are gone.
