The temp was 76 (F) when I got up this morning. This does not mean today is going to be super-hot. Our afternoon temps are predicted to be in the low 90s (F), with a possible high of around 94 (F). This is, for us, a normal summer. The week rains we were getting stopped about a week ago. This is the standard precipitation pattern we go through: July and August will be fairly dry, except for the occasional thunderstorm. All of the high heat and humidity are to our south.
I made lasagna yesterday. A good thing that's not so good if you're trying to eat healthy. I work today, so I wanted to take something for lunch. This does not mean I've chosen to stop eating healthily. I'm adding more nuts back into my diet. A note for those who eat nuts: when you see the calorie count, say 190 calories per serving on the package, understand that is not correct. Nuts are harder to digest than fruit, or... say lasagna, so they burn more calories. Also, the fat content in nuts is much better for you than the fat count in, oh, say.... lasagna, which is extremely bad for you.
For those of you who don't know, the two candidates vying to replace Pat Toomey (R) in the Senate are Dr. Oz, from New Jersey, and John Fetterman from PA. Fetterman is up in the polls because... well, he's running against Dr. Oz. While big John's ads are snarky, here's a look at one which will shortly playing across the airwaves in PA from Meidas Touch. Sit back, grab your popcorn, and enjoy.
And Steve Bannon's defense team gets to admit they have no defense in court today. This short, fat man is going to lose. He will spend some time in jail. He is a relatively unimportant fool who is desperately trying to prove his relevance and failing terribly. We need to feel very sorry for his fellow inmates because there is no way in hell he's going to shut up.
Finally, we have another Jan 6 hearing this evening. Prime Time. At 8PM eastern. I understand that there are going to be a number of high points, one of which will be a comparison of GOP Congressman cowering and trying to hide on January 6 and the statements they made shortly thereafter, with later comments in which they called the insurrectionists tourists, etc. These men are going to look like total fools. They are going to be laughed at, the way so many are laughing at the stupidity of Steve Bannon.
