Yesterday was hot and sticky humid. Weather choices were: showers, thunder showers, and torrential rains with high winds. The rose I had ordered arrived, and is not planted by the front porch. While I did get a lot accomplished, I still felt much of the day was wasted.
The dogs wanted to go out, however they refuse to do so during a full monsoon. I did get a nice close up of Biggie.

There was an interesting bit in Reuters this AM about Nestle and how an American Hedge Fund is trying to force it down a path they believe would be much more profitable for investors. Little secret here: the public sector always loses when investors win. You see, they're aren't concerned about fair dollar value. Nope, their main goal is to make as much money as possible, as cheaply as possible. If Nestle doesn't fulfill their greed, these investors will move on and find another company to ruin.
And, speaking of greed. Scott Pruitt resigned. That's important, you know? There's a difference between getting fired and quitting. Where as Jim Jordan represents the moral failure of conservatives, Pruitt fully fleshes out their need for greed and power. Just like the Idiot Jerk in the White House, he wanted to be a dictator. Epitomizing the worst aspects of the 'me' generation, everything needed to revolve around him: his sound proof phone booth, his security, his wife's job, his need for a used mattress... Mattress? That' right, he had one of his aides call one of the Idiot Jerk's luxury hotels and inquire about buying a USED mattress. For 11 years I worked in the accounting department of Interstate Hotels, Inc., a company which ran success Marriott franchises, and I can tell you, with all honesty, there is no way I would ever want to buy, let alone sleep on a skanky hotel mattress. Wanting to do so, is a clear indicator that there is something terribly wrong with Scott Pruitt.
Oh, and in case anybody is interested, the forecast for today is showers and thundershowers. Yippee!
