Peppers at 10, which seems low.

|1 day 5 hours ago||Jeff Beck's Strat has rollers at the nut||
that's how whe is able to use the whammy so much without resorting to a Floyd Rose
Jeff Beck just turned 72 last week, and Buddy Guy turns 80 tomorrow. And both can still play like there's no tomorrow....!
|1 day 6 hours ago||It is an AZ Giant Hairy Scorpion||
Found it just outside my front door Thursday morning. Something had pierced its shell and crushed a couple of its legs, the most likely candidate would have been a Roadrunner, which are carnivores and quite viscous, despite how they are depicted in the Bugs Bunny/Warner Brothers cartoons. The thing was still alive for a short period, they are quite hardy. A few years ago we scooped one out of the bottom of the pool, and after it dried out it started moving again.
Fortunately they prefer their burrows and stay out of houses. Their sting is extremely mild, and they eat other scorpions. We are well aware of the bark scorpion, and average finding one/year in the house. My wife has no fear of them (and has even been stung "no big deal"), but they absolutely creep me out...the one thing I hate about living in AZ, even in the middle of the summer.

but quit because she had been posted in San Diego for several years, and didn't want to go to her next post in Tokyo. The Internet has not yet invented the facepalm gif that would cover that situation.
Happy B'Day WD! No rush, but I am looking forward to when you turn 40!

|1 week 13 hours ago||The dry heat thing in AZ||
is true- 115° here in Phx is much more tolerable than 90° with high humidity elsewhere. You don't get all wet and sticky because everything dries so quickly. I lived in New Orleans for several years, 95° with nearly 100% humidity- that was miserable. You couldn't breathe, and you had to take three showers/day.
One thing I did do: Installed a ductless minisystem A/C for the bedroom. We can keep the rest of the house at 80°, but cool the bedroom down quickly to the low 70's at night.

M was 6-6 the year before, and wasn't expected to do anything that year. Instead, 10-1-1 and finished ranked #2 in both polls. Only '97 topped it in the last half-century.

I would consider getting the Five Rings tattoed on me. So far that's it with regard to ink. In the meantime, I am seriously considering getting a laser and going into medical tattoo removal....
