      Thank you

    Hi, chrissy. I posted an update above. Yesterday we went to sleep with 5,000 acres burned, today we awoke to 15,000. We had 65pmp winds yesterday, and the hottest day in the history of our beloved Colorado Springs. This, comined with recieveing only 18% of our usual rainfall over the past two years.
    You folks argue 'global warming' which is entirely natural, for it has been written...the entire earth with one day be a warm Paradise with natural climates and seasons.
    All that mankinds pollution has done to this natural change is to take what would have been a 1000 yr. process (think Millenial reign of Christ already begun) and tried to cram it into 100 years.
    Atmospheric pollution keeps water from evaporating at a natural rate. (google pan-evap rates) Evap. water is the engine that drives our weather.
    Think about these things, and ask me some serious questions pls. I do have all the answers. I really do. 🙂

    ...and Mary meant that I was too busy working to not only keep updated, but to post here.
    My sleep habits have been altered since Saturday. It's like an old hound dog having his last bone taken away from him. He kinda gets grouchy when little puppies want to play, and with HIS last bone! (my theory on global warming vs. the other two)

  7. Philip posed as bciah

    ...plus we've all heard reports of senior citizen abuse at these places.
    I once tinted the glass on this "old age home" in Corona Del Mar. Most of these seniors were worth more in cash than we combined are. Anyway, they were the loneliest people I ever met. And just as kids scared of men wearing hats jump all over me wearing mine, old people are drawn to me in person. I felt like i did when my doggie Muffet had more puppies than she had teats, and i was covered in puppy smell. Dontcha just love puppy smell? I do. But...he he, it didn't smell like puppies them kindly old folks and lonely.

    If yer really sorry, acknowledge my theory on global warming. None of you have heard the truth about global warming. You are told by one side that it's manmade, and told 'no it's not' by the other.
    You ALL discuss these two opinions. What about mine? I've never been charged with lying to US. I've never been charged with using campaign funds to coverup my cheating ways. You listen to men like these BUSTED lying to US...EVEN ABOUT GLOBAL WARMING if you educate yourself.

    Sheesh, chrissy. I have no idea what your personal BMI is. Joey and I are so vain so as to post our physicality, ya'll women ain't that equal yet. Keep going. You will be, i promise.
    And i was only playing with the bone of mine that got taken away. (discussion on global warming as related to the truth about it as found by science and bible) I've got uglier obese jokes. I'd rather not post jokes, so...give me back my doggy bone or we can just keep playing with it.

    How about this?
    Philip, you post what you want, and bobcat, you post what you want.
    If people are interested, they will read them.
    If not, they won't.
    People like bobcat's jokes; people like Philip's posts.
    Let it be!

    I am glad you are safe, Philip.
    May it always be that way.

    Keep posting your jokes, bobcat.
    They are just as welcome and worthy as Philip's posts.

      Mary:
      Please explain why my post would illicit an insult from you, for I do not see what "game" I am possibly playing.
