21 degrees right now in the far south valley. 20 degree low last night on the front porch. i haven't checked the min/max in the gardens yet -too dang cold!

The weather page (which I believe lists the temp & forecast at Kirkland) says it's 32. Seriously? Is it actually 32 anywhere? (I know, I know. Cold sinks.)

Went to an abandoned mine one evening while visiting Valley View Hot Springs in southern Colorado. The bats left at dusk and they literally flew over our heads for 20 minutes (thousands of them)...an absolutely amazing spectacle. Save the bats!

"The pumpkin-tossing man said he hopes his form of vigilante justice is enough to make any burglars stay away."
In this world there's two kinds of people, my friend. Those with pumpkins, and those who dig. You dig.

Ben, Shotsie's post is a paraphrase from The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. I am pretty sure it was inspired by the idea of vigilante pumpkin justice, and has nothing to do with you.

I hope the resolution by APS will pass the board in a week! I know it might cost the state a little more, but in my opinion, education should be for anyone who aspires to obtain it, not just those who can afford it (both financially and citizenship-ily)

Yeah, that quote's from Clint Eastwood - I also thought about modifying some others - “You've got to ask yourself one question: 'Do I feel lucky?' Well, do ya pumpkin?” and "I have a very strict squash bug control policy: if there's a pumpkin around, I want to be in control of it."

I'm just totally amazed that he found a big pumpkin and smashed it over the perp's head. It's like a cartoon ending...Bugs Bunny beaning Elmer Fudd.... - I hope he gets a moment of fame on late night television....

I'm with you Shotsie - that is a total cartoon ending. I just wish they had footage of it!
