Daylight Savings Time



The change to Daylight Savings Time is just hours away. It doesn’t bother me, then again, I am not tied to a strict schedule. But there are reasons that I prefer it.

The President pardoned the submarine sailor who took unauthorized photos of his boat. The reason is fuzzy to me, but it seems to be that Hillary Clinton did it too, so why punish this sailor for doing “the same thing?” Well… for starters, it wasn’t the “same thing.” For seconds, a Nuclear Machinist Mate First Class Petty Officer is a tad bit more important to the National Security than the Secretary of State… yes, I said that. Secretary of State is a “non-job.”

The Seattle Seahawks released Richard Sherman and now he has signed with the 49ers. People up here aren’t sure what to think about that. The Angels new $uper$tar isn’t doing very well…

The Military Parade is a “Dog and Pony Show.” If the President really wants to say “Thank You” to the troops, there are some better ways to do it…

Mt. St. Helens Day Trip

I kind of apologize for not having a Saturday show this week. We took a day trip to Mt. St. Helens, another of Ben’s copious interests (it’s the deadliest volcano in US history!). It was a great family getaway for a day.

The 360



So… first things first.. the audio quality of this particular show is just nothing short of complete crap. I

Mt. Rainier from our new street

know that. So save the technical eMails. This was recorded in my Brother-in-Laws kitchen with equipment that is less than satisfactory but was all that was available. I highly recommend NOT using headphones. 

I really thought that I should just round file it, but after a few days of fiddling with it I decided that it has been too long since there’s been a new show, so here it is.

Our POD arrives on the 2nd of August (a seminal date in my history), which means that by the middle of August the new studio *should* be set up, although there is one factor that could push that back a week or two.

We are in the house, roughing things until we get our stuff. But otherwise things are really great. Except for the heat. Yep, it keeps hitting 80 degrees here.

It’s crazy hot!

Yes, I’m kidding. Stay cool, my friends!
