Yes,take a holiday from your blog, if you dare to you will be invaded by Japanese and Russian Spamslugs!
It has been quite hot in the Yakima Gulag. Smoke from the fires in Wennatchee and B.C. has hit me kind of hard. I don't go out more than necessary.
My son gave me used iPhone, and I have been learning to use it. I really like the fact I can lie down comfortably and go online. There are times I am really tired and don't want to sit up. Especially if it has been hot.
It was all a bit like the Oprah show, look under your seats.... the same friend who gave my son the used iPhone he gave me, gave him a slightly newer one, and the friend's wife gave my son's girlfriend a used iPhone too. I have not figured out how to post here from the iPhone though. My netbook is going to be a part of my life for some time to come. :).
I got advice from my son that fixed the connectivity problems too. I had bought a couple gel packs for taking things to eat with me if I am on bus rides, and he said use them to cool the router and then put a fan on the router. So I did that and things have gone better since. The router was as hoot as a $3 pistol.
Now I am not fighting so hard to get online.
All that was not why I stopped by though. Haris Pasevic in Sarajevo has donea wonderful play about fudbal. He was interviewed on CNN International's 'World View' and it was worth seeing the interview. I am sure the play is good. The report was from Hayat TV.
It has been pretty rainy in the Balkans of late. Betterr than burning up like Russia. I feel for the Russian people suffering like that. The smoke looks miserable. I was in Ketchum for their big fire and it hurt my nose and eyes nonstop. It was nothing like as bad as what Moscow looks like..
