Random Thoughts On July 14, 2008
On Monday, gasoline topped $4 all over in Kansas City. The Missouri side, that is. $4.09. I still can't believe it. It's always about 6-cents or 7-cents more on the Kansas side of the metro.
People always talk about how it's the humidity they can't stand about summer. I agree. But the humanity can be pretty bad too. :) Last week was fairly steamy in KC. I enjoy summer, but I do hate sweating when walking across the parking lot.
You know, who talks like that? I still can't believe Jesse Jackson said that. Who cares that he didn't know the microphone was live and that he was sitting in front of a camera? Does he really talk like that? He's really misguided.
I am disappointed that Anheuser-Busch was sold to InBev. The day it was announced, though, I knew the deal would go through. There would have been shareholder lawsuits and all kinds of other nonesense if the deal wasn't considered. The almight buck (albeit trading low against other currencies) always speaks.
Happy Bastille Day! July 14.
Mowed my lawn Sunday. With the rain we've had so far this season, my front lawn looks really nice. The back is a different story. Weeds. Yuck. The deer already have eaten all my day lillies.
My Noah's Ark guest room has a leak in the ceiling. A dude came out and patched the small leak around a vent pipe, but he suggests I file a claim because of hail damage. A new roof, I hope, could be around the corner.
