    Does that pigeon have a peg leg?

    Current temp 59. Forecast high 90. Mostly sunny, 0% chance of rain. Actually it’s been an unusually cool summer here in the midland’s of South Carolina. Don’t think we broke 100 degrees even once, which is the first summer that has happened in the 12 years we’ve lived here. I’m ready for the cool though (doesn’t really get cold until after Christmas).

    Snow’s going to get thumped! Obviously she needs to put him through remedial husband training again.

    Though those look like ribs on the banana leaf, the dancing cat facing out is smoking. You have to remember that his strips started back in the 60’s and continued until his death in 1990. If you see a self portrait of his when he was younger he usually has a cigarette in his mouth. Different times.

    This definitely looks like a backyard get-together instead of a tourist luau. Lay you odds those cans were supposed to be beer too :).

    I feel for him(her? I’ve been reading for years and I don’t think I’ve ever seen it said). We’ve got 3 cats and the friend who moved in with us has 4, so we have to feed in 5 different areas to keep the few food aggressive cats from causing fights and stealing the other cats food.

    If they actually ingested coffee beans, at the minimum they’d be at the vets in critical condition. Caffeine is HIGHLY poisonous to dogs and cats, especially bad if they are small (like kittens). http://www.petpoisonhelpline.com/2011/09/is-caffeine-poisonous-to-dogs/

    That is the voice of MOM. I have it, my sisters have it and every woman I know who has a mom who laid down the rules and enforced them, has it. Sometimes it’s quiet for a long time and then you hear, “Sit up straight” or “it’s doesn’t, not don’t” (I get that one when hubby uses “don’t” inappropriately, which is all the time). I guess kids who grew up with parents that wanted to be their “friends”, don’t have that, but I wouldn’t give it up for the world.

    Myth Busters played with the experiment on one of their episodes and, if I remember right, diet coke is better than regular coke. Not sure if the whole episode is here or not. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LjbJELjLgZg . The guys from EepyBird were the ones who started the whole thing :). http://www.eepybird.com/

    Oh, just a bit of trivia here. When it’s 100 degrees out in basic, it’s considered black flag weather.

    Flag Conditions, Based on WBGT readings ONLY

    Definitions

    For the purpose of flag conditions, essential activities are those basic to the completion of the assigned mission of the Naval Station and tenant commands, they can not be suspended or delayed without a serious effect on mission accomplishment. Leadership must ensure proper acclimatization and implementation of Operational Risk Management(ORM) to ensure mission accomplishment. [COMNAVACTSPAININST 3140.2]
    Green Flag (80°-84.9° WBGT)- Utilize discretion in planning heavy exercise for unacclimatized personnel because the environment is at a marginal heat stress limit for all personnel. •Heavy exercise for unacclimatized personnel should be conducted with caution and under responsible supervision. Buddy system is recommended.
    •Heavy exercise for acclimated personnel is unrestricted.
    •Drink 1 quart of cool water per hour. Use 75% work and 25% rest for outdoor work (example: 45 minutes work and 15minutes rest). Heat cramps and heat exhaustion possible with continued exposure.

    Yellow Flag (85°-87.9° WBGT)- Strenuous exercise and activity must be curtailed or markedly reduced for new and unacclimatized personnel during the first 2 weeks of heat exposure. Heat stress can occur. •Strenuous exercise is limited to those acclimated 14 days or longer.
    •Drink 1-2 quarts of cool water per hour. Use a “buddy system” and have teams monitor each other’s condition. Use 50% work and 50% rest* (example: 30 minutes work and 30 minutes rest). Heat cramps likely. Heat stroke and heat exhaustion possible with continued exposure.

    Red Flag (88°-89.9° WBGT)- Strenuous exercise must be curtailed for all personnel with less than 12 weeks training in hot weather. Heat stress is likely to occur. •All physical training should be halted for those who have not become thoroughly acclimated by at least 30 days of physical activity at this temperature. Those who are acclimated may carry on limited activity.
    •Drink 2 quarts of cool water per hour. Use a “buddy system” and have teams monitor each other’s condition. Use 25% work and 75% rest (example: 15 minutes work with 45 minutes rest). Heat stroke possible with continued exposure.

    Black Flag (>90° WBGT)- Non-Mission essential physical training and strenuous exercise must be suspended for all personnel. Heat stress will occur in most cases. •Outdoor work should be limited to critical missions only (requires commander approval). Use 25% work and 75% rest (example: 15 minutes work with 45 minutes rest). Use a “buddy system” and have teams monitor each other’s condition. Drink 2 quarts of cool water per hour. Heat stroke likely with continued exposure.
