BSA creates new merit badges: (From Twitter)


Approval at 36%.

Still too high, IMO. If his base is around 27% (read that somewhere today), then 9% need a swift kick.

And where are the missing 5%? Maybe they are in a coma.

Tillerson has been unhappy for awhile.

Reportedly, he has been unable to staff the State Dept. as he would like.

Or maybe he can't overturn the sanctions, thanks to Congress. Who knows?! Whoever gets the position will be worse though. We can count on that.

Peppers are doing well this year!

I bought some cool looking purple bell peppers at the May Market and they are really doing well. Also, green bell, jalapeño, and Hungarian wax.

Got a few little tomatoes but the blight is back despite vigorous spraying. No cukes yet, but lots of blossoms and healthy vining.

Herbs in pots are all doing great. I also bought lemon basil, but wasn't sure how to use it in recipes. BTW, is purple basil edible? I have a pot of that and it's really pretty.

Today's Google Doodle: Happy July Fourth!

Today's Doodle honors the National Parks:

Google is celebrating today’s Fourth of July holiday with a doodle inspired by the U.S.’s first National Parks Service Director and noted conservationist Stephen Mather.

The red, white and blue logo leads to a search for “Fourth of July,” and includes images of deer, bears, moose and other animals you may find in one of America’s 58 national parks.

According to Google, Mather’s birthday was also on July 4th. He was named director of the the National Parks Service — often cited as “Amercia’s best idea” — in 1916 by President Woodrow Wilson who created the NPS the same year.

“Over a century old, America’s national parks span 84 million acres and host more than 275 million visitors every year,” writes Google on its Google Doodle Blog.

Toomey will hold a televised "town hall" next week:

The event, scheduled for 7 p.m. Wednesday at the news outlet's Harrisburg station, will be broadcast by other ABC affiliate stations in Altoona, Wilkes-Barre and Erie.

Viewers will be connected with the Republican senator during the live event via social media. ABC27 will take questions for Toomey on its Facebook page.

Because of capacity limitations at the station, admittance to the town hall is by invitation only.
