Good morning from the sunny West Coast.

Usually, the furnace has been cranked up by now but today we are expecting 27c/80f. All the doors and windows are still open wide and we sit and enjoy our coffee in silence out on the patio.

So sad to hear of Kevin's losses, hopefully, friends and family can help lessen the burden ahead. It will take some time to get back to any feeling of normalcy. Good friends of my wife lost over 200 head of cattle, they have been sending pics and their barns are just gone.

A lot of my wife's dogs have become SAR and Cadaver retrieval dogs as well as explosive and drug sniffers. Many of them have been descending on Florida to aid in the recovery effort. We have been getting photos from the handlers.

About the auto security thing, one thing we have done a couple of times with the new Toyota is we have just walked away and left it on. It makes no noise so if you get distracted after you park but before you get out, you forget it is on. We rarely ever lock any of our vehicles and it is hard to think about doing that now. Someone could have gotten in it and just driven away.

I got up on the roof with the leaf blower yesterday and cleaned the crap and needles off so the rain can flow freely to where it should. I use to sweep it with a broom and then last year I got a leaf blower. The roof is about 6000 sqft and takes about 10 minutes with the leaf blower and two hours with a broom. I feel an idiot for not getting it sooner, but I had no real use for the blower. I do blow all the dog hair out of the garage as well now.Laugh

I am going to be a real deadbeat today, maybe a little more prep for the Winter ahead. I need to go fill the gas cans, we have about six weeks of lawn cutting left and then I will fill them again so we can run the generator when the time comes. Living out in the sticks makes us a low priority for the power company, fair enough. I think four days was the longest we were without power and I didn't miss a hockey game.Laugh

All the best to all.

Brent

Saints march down and covert the two-pointer.  This could be one of the more competitive games across the Pond in a while.  I always wondered how American footballers managed the extra distractions of playing in London.  Today I'm wondering what the grounds crew at Hotspur's home venue feel about having to install goal posts and reline the pitch so dramatically.  Then turn it around again.  I'm betting the NFL pays them a pretty penny (or Pound).  Even so . . .

Question for David:  How would you assess the interest in Britain for this game and the occasional American college teams that show up for a tilt in London?

Is York1 watching or dipping into the Sunday donuts at church?

John loves his churchYes and church donuts, but he also loves the Saints.  You'd think he would have ate his donuts on the way, rushing home for the gameLaugh...Wink

We just got home from church and have the game on.  Looks like it's been back and forth.

When the Saints' coach Payton and quarterback Brees retired, my hope of good seasons went down.

For many years I sat in the Superdome on Sunday afternoons watching the Saints get kicked around the field.  It wasn't until I moved away from New Orleans that they won a SuperBowl.  Must be a coincidence.

It doesn't look good.  Fourth down and behind by three.  I hate this.

I guess I will owe TF a breakfast tomorrow.

Whoa, dude: a 60-yarder to tie!  Even the Brits will appreciate this as similar circumstances and distances in rugby apply.  This will be fun . . .

Have been a big fan of Drew Brees because of his Purdue history. It is very easy to root for the Saints.

Continued good thoughts for Kevin and his family. Stuff can be replaced; people can't be.

In spite of the end, that was an exciting game to watch.

The coach used to say that the game wasn't lost on the kick.  If your game comes down to a kick, you haven't played well enough the rest of the game.

Congratulations, Vikings fans!  I guess I will be buying you breakfast tomorrow morning in the diner.  You can order anything you want (as long as it's under 45¢).

 

This is what Saints fans looked like sitting around me on Sunday afternoons:

Judy said, since she had to go to work today and I get to crack a beer at noon and watch football all day, that I have to make the potato soup with those farm fresh red potatoes we got at the roadside stand last weekend.

I've never made potato soup before??? and she left me a recipe on my phone.  This ought to be interesting running back and forth to the kitchen during commercials on my next football game todayIndifferent

 

Wish me luck because I'm not exactly Chef Pierre Cortel when it comes to making something newLaugh

But I like to keep the peace and I have my set of instructions from the War DepartmentLaugh
