Well, one-half of my mouth is clean! It wasn\’t bad at all – in fact, I enjoyed the dental hygenist and the conversation in the next room was also enjoyable. Like always the part that hurt, was the part that is to keep you from feeling pain. The injection of novocaine. Dang, that hurt! I go back next week for the other half and then I am done!
The Cow Fire was caused by hot catalytic converter parts being ejected from the exhaust system of a passing vehicle. The fire is 761 acres and 50% contained according to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection. The Happy Valley Fire was stopped at 50 acres.
The weather apps have downgraded our upcoming heatwave to 115-118. That could happen. It happens for a few short days every summer. People forget – I don\’t. I usually write it down and take a photo to document it.
Our county did something right – for a change. They unanimously rejected the use permit for a controversial massive wind farm project planned for the Intermountain area. These wind turbines were in a fire-prone area – making it very difficult for fire planes to combat fires. There were a lot of environmental issues with this project plus it infringed on tribal lands. It was one of the few times, that many groups that usually are at odds with each other, came together. The unions were for it because it meant JOBS. The bottom line was the wind project\’s impact on the environment, the scenery, and the potential long-term harm it would do to the area\’s economy outweighed the benefits of this massive wind farm. The meeting which was opened to the public was packed and lasted 10 hours. We already have wind turbines – near there and half of them are broke down. Those were installed back in 2010. Of course, this Texas company will appeal.
We bought our car on Sat. June 5 and we are still at a full tank of gas! I am beside myself with joy. That was what we wanted – I can already see a huge difference in our budget. Regular Gas is up to $4.06 a gallon.
