  7. Were the admin a little more in charge of its own message, it would simply repeat what Thad says.

    Alas, there are off days.

  8. Do you want to talk about off days? I left the stove on all night with nothing in the pan. It was on a very low simmer mind you but still it was on. We were lucky.

  9. "We were lucky."

    So on second thought let's not think of them as off days, shall we? Rather, lucky days.

  10. The U.S. government scrambled on Friday to ward off an environmental disaster that could cost billions of dollars as a huge oil spill reached coastal Louisiana, imperiling shrimp fishing grounds, oyster beds and fragile wetlands with a rich variety of wildlife.
    With oil gushing unchecked from a ruptured deepwater well in the Gulf of Mexico off Louisiana, President Barack Obama's administration heaped pressure on London-based energy giant BP, the majority owner of the blown-out well, to do more to shut off the flow and contain the spreading slick.

    ...

    "The problem here is we have a leak that's uncontrolled right now, leading to a source of oil that's not infinite, but it's very very large, and we're not going to know the total impact and the oil release until we actually shut it down," Coast Guard Admiral Thad Allen said on CNN.
    "I think 5,000 barrels per day is a good estimate for now, but I think we need to understand, we can have something catastrophic happen down there, we need to be prepared for the worst-case scenario, and that's where we're headed."

  11. I'm lucky not to have burned down something over this many years. Due to often intensive activities involving a very large and ancient cast iron skillet - and the absence of a good exhaust fan - I always have to remove the battery from the smoke alarm nearest the kitchen.

  13. I nearly burned down the house attempting to deep-fry some won-tons, or something-a-rather a few years back now. Kitchen window drape caught fire burned up with flames licking the ceiling. Talk about a close one.

  16. That's the thing it never smoked or smelled or anything indicating it was on. No smoke alarm went off or anything. Although, my pan has this slimy sticky stuff that I can't, for the life of me, get off of it.

  17. I smoked a smoke on the porch, after having helped Walt, now dead, crushed under his own SUV, with harvest, then went to bed, only to wake up with the Fire Department banging on the doors. The wife was really mad. She said, you could have done a better job of it, as she doesn't really like it here, and would rather have a new home.

  18. I never burned anything down except for a few eyelashes and some hair in the frong of my head.

  19. When I was up at the lake, by myself, reading, I took one of these quart plastic bottles of lighter fluid, and sprayed it on the charcoal, which wasn't going so good, where I was making some steaks, sprayed from a few feet away. Whole damned porch nearly exploded, the flame came right up the spray. Don't ever ever do that.

  20. Today they closed the Louisiana Capline offshore crude terminal (off of St. James) due to the spill (likely do not want tankers spreading the spill and fire risk on the water). This is where crude oil import tankers tie up to unload for the Louisiana area refineries. Gasoline is up another 5 cents today wholesale.

  22. Another time, my sis and me ,who is six years older than I, were going skinny dipping, late at night one hot August night, in the lake, when the water is warmer than the air, and we had a fire, as usual on the beach. When we got out of the water, she putting a towel about her body, and me too, we had a smoke, and one of us threw a
    cig butt over there, in the bushes and it caught fire in the bushes. Just don't let fools play with matches! Or cigarettes!

  25. Only the Good Lord could possibly know, MLD. If I were making a budget now, I would plan on $4.00/gal, be prepared for $5.00, and hope for $3.50.

    But, really, too many unknown, unknowns. ANYTHING could happen. One would be: The economy falls off a cliff, and the price of gas actually goes down.

  26. One pretty reliable outfit thinks it's more like 20,000 barrels/day. That would be 840,000 gallons/day.

  28. If that oil ever gets over to the L.O.O.P. it'll shut off almost all of the oil imports to the Gulf from Louisiana, Eastward, I think, and maybe some to Texas. If it gets over to the Houston Ship Channel then I guess we're looking at all Gulf imports. Or, almost all.

    Obama will Tap the "Reserve," and, quite likely, impose rationing.

  29. Billions, and Billions, and Billions will be lost if that oil gets over to the Destin, Santa Rosa area. That white sand will Never recover. Not in a hundred years.

  33. The Pinal County deputy, who was not immediately identified, contacted authorities after being wounded in the desert, saying he had been shot by an illegal immigrant with an AK-47, said Lt. Tammy Villar, a sheriff's spokeswoman.
    ...
    Pinal County is between Phoenix and Tucson and has been described as a key transit point for illegal immigrants and drug traffickers. Sheriff Paul Babeu said an estimated 80 percent of illegal immigrants eventually pass through his county along the way to other locations.

    Earlier this week, a CNN crew spent 12 hours on patrol with Pinal County deputies. In that time, the deputies captured more than 50 suspected illegal immigrants and about 2,000 pounds of marijuana.

  35. I've seen the slick referred to as "Palin's Pond."

    Early on I saw a figure for "insured cost" being around $35 Billion. Only Jehova knows what the cost may end up being.

    If we end up with "Rationing," and a Crashed Economy it could run to a $Trillion.

    For half that I could replace every drop of oil we use in the United States.

  38. Right on Time:


    TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Florida Gov. Charlie Crist has declared a state of emergency in several Panhandle coastal counties because of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
    Friday's executive order covers Escambia, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa, Walton, Bay and Gulf Counties.

    The order says "The resulting oil slick is generally moving in a northerly direction and threatens Florida's coast."

  46. Too much Legal Immigration, already!

    Most Americans do not know just how many legal immigrants we let in each year. The Department of Homeland Security just issued their statistics for new legal permanent immigrants in 2009. Last year, we issued 1,130,818 green cards, the fourth highest year since 1914. From 2000-2009, we issued over 10 million green cards, the highest decade of American history. Currently, there are 38 million immigrants, 24 million of whom are in the workforce. This does not include temporary workers. DHS did not release the 2009 figures yet, but they issued 912,735 temporary employment authorizations in 2008.

    Most of these immigrants are low skilled and from the Third World. Less than 10% of new green card holders are from Europe. People of extraordinary ability, investors, and immigrants with advanced degrees made up less than 8% of the new immigrants.

    Faced with these numbers, how can anyone argue with a straight face that we don’t admit enough immigrants?

    ---

    Turbeaux said,

    That’s absurd. It is impossible for illiterate and unskilled workers to become contributing and productive members of American society. Not only that, but they are also not compatible with America society. Wow, only 8 percent of new immigrants are actually qualified.

    Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me.
    I lift my lamp beside the golden door."


    The only "Qualification" required to come to the United States, is desire to improve one's self.

    The Arizona Hysteria

    Racist! Nativist! Profiler! Xenophobe!

    "Finally, legal immigration should be reformed and reflect new realities. Millions of highly educated and skilled foreigners from Asia, Africa, Latin America, and Europe are dying to enter the U.S.

    Rather than base immigration criteria on anchor children, accidental birth in the U.S. without concern for legality, and family ties, we need at least in part to start giving preference to those of all races and nationalities who will come with critical skills, and in turn rely less on the social service entitlement industry.

    They should come from as many diverse places as possible to prevent the sort of focused ethnic tribalism and chauvinism we have seen in the case of Mexico’s cynicism.

  51. Your last three posts may be right on, doug-o, but not the course charted, for US, by our elected leaders of both political parties.

    When we did the refurbishing of Lady Liberty we did not change the inscription, so that remains the Standard.

  54. Sure would be nice if anyone in Media would just let someone who knows something talk and answer questions.

    A caller got on one of the shows yesterday, and I learned more in 30 seconds than my previous knowledge combined.
    ...but 30 seconds was all he got, then it was back to whatever the "issue" was being discussed.

    A critical fact is this:
    When the column is filled with oil, the weight of that column moderates the pressure.

    As soon as gas begins to come up with the oil, the weight is reduced, and if you don't get it shut off in time, the resulting pressure can blow up just about anything.

    Must be a hell of a feeling as they are monitering and the density starts going down:

    You know the chances of a shit storm are rapidly going up.

    Still seems like it would have been a good idea to leave the fire burning at the site, esp after the platform collapsed.
