.......GLOBAL WARMING.......

Brazil flights canceled amid safety concerns...
Sao Paulo, Brazil.
Citing safety concerns over heavy rain and a short runway, TAM airlines canceled or diverted about 90 flights Tuesday at Sao Paulo's main airport, where one of the carrier's planes crashed in the rain last week, killing 199 people. Authorities periodically closed the airport to all traffic during the rain Tuesday, causing a ripple effect, as more than half of all flights in Brazil were delayed or canceled for the straight day.

Britons cleaning up after worse floods in decades..
Buscot, England..Gasoline-powered pumps roared into action Tuesday as stunned Britons tried to dry out their houses after the worst flooding in more than half a century. Although sunshine helped shrink water levels Tuesday, more rain was expected in the next few days. Forecasters, however, said additional flooding wasn't expected. The heaviest flooding was in the Gloucestershire region, where some 350,000 people remained without drinking water.

Heat wave sweeps south Europe, killing 35..
Bucharest, Romania..Southern Europe sizzled under a heat wave Tuesday, with temperatures hitting triple digits for a seventh day in Romania, blazes forcing the evacuation of tourists in Croatia and Italy, and wildfires in Macedonia and Greece exploding shells from long-ago wars.At least 35 heat-related deaths were reported. At least 27 people have died since last week in Romania,where heavy use of air conditioning caused power outages..

Oh, no! Water up to the knees is not good! Did you get flooded out?

Yes, global warming does exist but by the time people finally believe it, it will be too late. I'm not sure if I wanna die by drowing in a flood or burning up because it's so blasted hot out.

Catching up...I knew where his head was, but thought they might find his brain while they were in there!

My wife has been cutting my hair for 25 of our 31 years together...she had hers cut once 20 years ago and swore never again. Every now and then she has someone trim the ends for her.

If W. ever admits he's made a single mistake the dam will burst and he'll have to admit them all!

Hope you manage to stay dry! So far my wife's cousins in Fort Worth have, though one lost a kitchen ceiling from a leak.

Thinking of you...

Gee I fell behind.
Admitting Global Warming is real is bad for business. Oil electric and coal more than any other.
Sure would be nice if Al Gore would run then at least it would become a real issue in the election.

My friend in Romania wrote me about that heat. I was getting sick in the 100 degree heat. I don't know if I'd have been able to stand what was going on there.
