Israel vs. Iran vs. Obama

Orson Scott Card makes clear our duty to stand with Israel
If history has taught us anything, it is that when fanatics announce their intention to kill Jews as soon as they get the means to do it, and then get the means, they kill Jews.

Lamp Post

24 hours before Maria and I were hosting a post wedding reception for my Niece Lynette, Maria came home with a lamp post for me to install.
For those of you who know me, you will agree there is a reason I am not an electrician or a gardener or any thing else mechanical. I am just not good at it. But I agreed, we really do need more light in the back yard for parties.

Of course the problem with a lamp post is that it needs power, and that means digging up the lawn the day of a party. To prevent future accidental encounters with the power cable I decided to bury the cable under the exiting cement. I had to dig under the cement with a hand trowel for about 16 feet. Maria was very concerned to see the lawn still dug up just 5 hours before the party

A total of 5 trips to home depot plus a very redneck gave the desired results
