A very big thank you to all who are serving and have served the greatest country on earth, THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA - here is a cool picture which I took from Press Pros Magazine's web site - Symbol Of Service...The solitary figure of Union General G.K. Warren looks over the Gettysburg National Battlefield Park from atop Little Round Top, a poignant reminder of the dedication of American servicemen, then and now.

Going Streakin'

The Reds are going streakin'
I know I know, I have been slackin' - not near as much computer time with this gorgeous weather - don't be shocked if I become a twice a week blogger for much of the summer!!!!
These 3 young ladies along with the rest of the Russia High School Senior Class graduates at 1:30 pm on Sunday - Congratulations to Tori, Danielle, Lindsay, and the rest of the seniors - Best of Luck!!!
The Reds have now won 6 in a row and are in first place for the first time this season - lets hope that they can make it 9 in a row and follow up their sweep of the Braves (what Tomahawk chop) with a sweep of the Rockies (and their 49 year old starting pitcher on Sunday).
Does anyone else think that Homer Bailey looks like Christian Bale??? - here they are to compare
Reds Catcher Devon Mesoraco hit a grand slam last night to lead the Reds to the 6-3 victory - doesn't he look like he should have graduated from Marion Local???
 Todd Frazier hit a walk off home run on Wednesday night
This guy hit his 714th and final home run 77 years ago today
the New Mercedes Benz SCL 600 
no steering wheel or pedals!!!!!!
Is there any other song which reminds you so much of a specific movie other than this song?????

I am intrigued by Eclipses

Sunday will come to a close with a spectacular solar eclipse across much of the United States with the Southwest enjoying the best view and weather.
The moon will reduce the sun to what resembles a thin ring late Sunday along a path from Medford, Ore., to Redding, Calif., to Reno, Nev., to Cedar City, Utah, to Albuquerque, N.M., to Lubbock, Texas.  While officially deemed a partial eclipse elsewhere across the West, the astronomical show will still be amazing for Los Angeles, Phoenix, Salt Lake City and Boise with more than 80 percent of the sun being covered.  AccuWeather.com Senior Meteorologist Brett Anderson states that the display will be extra spectacular throughout the Rockies with the eclipse occurring right before sunset.
 For those hoping to view or photograph the eclipse (doing so while adhering to the safety tips outlined by SPACE.com), Mother Nature is set to cooperate.
High pressure will promote clear skies throughout the Southwest and northward to Idaho late Sunday.  Some clouds threaten to partially obscure the view across the central and southern High Plains, which includes Lubbock, Texas.
Seattle and Portland would be treated to the same show in store for Los Angeles and San Diego, but a blanket of clouds will cover the Pacific Northwest. Some of these clouds should spill across far northern California and the interior Northwest.
