I was down in the Desert yesterday and last night and a fire broke out around 10pm in Palm Springs near the Tramway road. The winds were insane so I figured this thing was going to do some damage. Somehow they were able to stop it at 40 acres with no homes lost even though the winds were easily 30-40 mph. Sorry I didn't get very good media from the incident but you get the idea. The fire started just west of Palm Canyon Road and Tramway Road. Very Densely populated with homes.






Winter can leave now... Lets try to get above 50 degrees???

What's up with fire in PS? We drove to Palm Desert yesterday. When we were even with where 111 splits off a BIG (approx 12in by 8-10in) burning ember of something landed on the road a couple of cars in front of us!! We swerved around it thankfully. It was gone before we could call 911 to report it! WTH?

Red October is one of my all time favorite s and anything by Tom Clancy. I also like Vince Flynn and Michael Connelly, the Lincoln Lawyer author!!

Simba is slightly bigger and more aggressive than the Cookster.

If you look right now, Simba is closer to the camera. You can see Cookies grey shoulders. Also note that they are starting to help themselves to food

For now, when they are sitting side-by-side, Simba appears darker because his feathers are a touch more developed. Cookie still has some grey down in his shoulders. But that will last only for maybe the next week.

Finally got a close look at the bands. Simba is on the left right now. Nice to be able to tell tem apart. The are growing up so fast

It's a tossup between Mitch Rapp and Jack Reacher for the best modern-day Paladin.

Tom Clancy is a great writer. Any Vince Flynn fans out there?

BTW, the 5:52 movie reference was Patriot Games.
No takers...
