A Few Items of Interest...

Some lightning and thunder came through late this afternoon. It showered here at the house...

But not much.


We need some rain.

I can see lightning and can hear a bit of thunder right now.

I went outside to check it out, but above my head is clear sky.


We need some rain.

My new hot water heater was installed today.


I got a letter in the mail from the university that I attend.

It was an invitation to apply for a special academic program.

We have reviewed our academic records and have identified you as one of a select group of OCU students who we believe is qualified to participate in the distinguished State Regents' Oklahoma Scholar-Leadership Enrichment Program (OSLEP) in the coming academic year.

I didn't know who, or what, OSLEP was so I checked them out. It seems that there are only 22 students accepted each year.


I'm honored to have even been considered.

However, I'm a little short on the tuition.


Plus, I would have to stay at the University of Oklahoma for one week for the special class. So it would cost me a ~little more~ than the $450. I would lose a week of pay too.

But it would probably be a lot of fun to stay in a college dorm again.

For a few days that is.

Maybe I would be more focused on my studies this time around.


I enjoyed reading my friend's blogs this evening in spite of Blogger.

Yeah, everyone's pages are loading like I'm on dial-up, or something akin to it.

Darrell, the Southern Conservative (South Con), has written an interesting post today.

Muslim Fun Day Cancelled??

I really enjoyed it.

The thunder sounds like it is getting closer.

A few raindrops are starting to fall.

Thank you Lord.

You guys have a great Friday and I'll catch you all back here...

Hey Sicilian...


Mom keeps me updated on a regular basis on your weather down there. So when I pray for rain, I'm praying for the Hill Country of Texas too!

;+ )

For once, I believe that we have been a tad more miserable than you guys this summer. *wink*

Hey Wolfbaby...


I enjoy your posts about school. A lot of times, you mirror some of my anxiety! Have you started classes yet?

Hey Darrell...

You're welcome.

Hey Pattie...

I could see you going back to school! I think you would enjoy it immensely.

I will take all raindances, pretty or not. I would like a video tape of it though.

Maybe you could load it up on YouTube?

Hey Peggikaye...


Fall? And after that follows Winter?


I'll be begging for these days here in the not too distant future.

I know I will.

Hope you get some serious rain - but NOT in the form of anything destructive!

Sure wish we could send you some of what we've had so far this year ... *rolls eyes*

Me too Moof!

There should be some form of transcontinental pipeline created that could move large amounts of water from one section of the country to another.

Flooding waters could be channeled into it and directed to someplace that is experiencing a drought, and vice versa.

A system of canals could do it, which in turn, could be used as a mass transport system of goods that could reduce our need for petroleum products that 18-wheelers gobble up.

When the water arrives in the drought stricken regions, it could then be "bled off" to where it is needed.

Just a thought.
