And I Thought WE Had A Lot of Rain

The rain continued today. Is there still a sun out there somewhere? What happens if it just rains every day all summer?

However, it looks like more interesting things wash up in Austria when it rains heavily...

Rain washes tank ashore

Heavy rains have washed a Second World War Russian tank ashore in the Danube River in Austria.

Munitions experts in Bad Deutsch deactivated 50 live shells, grenades and machine gun rounds before the machine was taken to a military museum.


Check out the story for a picture.

So far the only thing that has washed up here are my cars.  I'm looking into converting them to amphibious vehicles and putting in a dock at the bottom of the driveway.

It's Saturday!

I'm sitting on the screened in porch with a glass of wine and my trusty little Asus netbook.  It's finally warmed up and even though it's mostly cloudy, it's not raining.  WOOHOO!!!

I think I need  to find my camera and take a picture. It's been slim times for the camera lately with all the rain and gloom.  I was afraid to take it on our walk today in case the looming clouds decided to emit even more water.  It didn't rain though and I missed several excellent shots that won't come my way again.  Oh well.

One good thing - the plants and trees all LOVE this rainy cool weather. They are very happy. 

As for  me, I'm happy it's a lazy Saturday.

Wouldn't It Be Hilarious...

Scott Bourne twittered an iPhone give away.   In general I don't win stuff so I figure I'm pretty safe passing on the tweet.  If you really want to know, I would rather win one of the Drobos he gives away so consistently.  However, I could still buy my own if I wanted to - I'm just lazy.

I can see it now... it would be just my luck to win this thing.  (wonder what I'd do with it). However, I did want to give everyone else a chance at it if they so choose.  It's also amusing to see if my name does turn up when I least want it to.

Headlines

With an inauspicious start to the day, I have been trying turn things around.  It's been a losing battle for the most part.

The guys came to do some driveway repairs - I was told they'd be here at around 10am - they showed up at 8am.  This would be a good thing, except I couldn't get out to go get my coffee. Had I known, I could have taken the car out early.  Finally got out about noon. 

Things did not get better. 

Oh well.

Therefore, I have headlines because that's all I can come up with. 

***

Car loses all four wheels on highway

As bad as some of the people are who call Car Talk, I haven't heard of anything like this. I think I'm surprised.

***

Australia's Afghanistan troops aghast at Dutch food

They are rather coy with the explanation, but I did love this bit:

Houston said the Dutch-prepared food was generally nutritious, but was not as fresh as Australians were generally accustomed to in their diets.


***

What happened to Flight 447?

With all the endless speculation by media types who haven't got the first clue about how airplanes even leave the ground, this is one person who is a voice of reason.

***

Palm's Pre: a star is born?

Can't wait to hear what it's like once it's on the market... that would be this Saturday.  I will never get an iPhone as long as it's on AT&T.  So I'd love to see Palm get something good going.  Besides I don't game and so much of the "app" stuff is all about diddling around and playing with the thing.  It would cause way too much eye strain for me.

Cnet is giving it a good review... so I'm staying tuned in.

***

Well, that's it for tonight.  Time to get offline for a bit!  Tomorrow the furnace guy comes to do the yearly cleaning.  Oh joy.  I will get out and get coffee before he gets here.  Appointment is for 10am... we shall see.

Clever

From the young man who brought us the Space Bat Memorial.  His High School media project.  Fun stuff.
