don't mess with electric wires unless power is off....and I have discovered that low magnesium is responsible for night time leg cramps.....I have avoided lots of cramps by taking magnesium within an hour of bedtime...........hope your day is wonderful....we are socked in with heavy fog.....

Good morning Kitty and all.  56 here this morn, thought it would be in the 60s.  I take a

magnesium tablet but around dinner time.  I expect leg cramps when I spend lots of time

on a ladder or using different leg muscles somehow, but don't think I did that day.

Knew we were in trouble when a rapist was put on the supreme court.  Was just the beginning,

still more to come. 

We went to our granddaughters graduation.  Was something to see, sad to have lost my little girl

but had to happen.  Wish my canine friends had only graduated but they're gone.  She's going to

SUNY Broome for Early Childhood Education to start.  Got some pictures on my Cannon camera

but I have to pull the memory card to get them transferred to this PC.  My sister's grandkid is joining

the Army, but that's where I saw that I needed college.

I mounted two more motion solar lights on the house wall towards the pool.  Was dark there since

our pole light is blocked from there.  Swapped the GPSs between the Subaru and the Monte Carlo

because the one has the speed on the right side where I need it in the Monte, it has a different

transmission than it was manufactured with and doesn't match the speedometer.  So have to keep

an eye on the GPS for my correct speed.

I know Kitty, my wife's aunt had a boyfriend killed cutting branches around a live power line.  Even

without that I know better.  A ground fault interrupt trips at around 20 milliamps or 20 thousandths

of an amp so playing around with 200 amps is reckless.  These branches are 10 to 15 inches around.

A home owner would need to prevent this from happening 15 years ago but dad was in poor health

and the brothers that were to inherit the property weren't thinking about the future. 

Very warm today, might be in the pool for a while.  Grandson is here again but only until later today.

Everyone enjoy the day and stay cool.

Good morning Kitty and all.  60 here this morn, a little warmer than lately, storms this eve,

I worked at a utility company last 17 years of my career but in a lab most of the time analyzing

and repairing remote terminal boards that control electric and gas flow.  We did go out to the

field and help the field techs, more some years than others depending on who was in power.

I tried taking magnesium at bedtime instead of dinner time.  Did sleep until the alarm went off

which doesn't happen that often, so hopeful it will help with leg cramps at night.  Usually only

happens when I use different leg muscles the day before., like working on a ladder, but didn't see

a reason for it the other night.  So thanks for the tip.

I just did odds and ends yesterday, 89 degrees here and warmer today.  It's illegal in NY for a

motorcycle to go ahead through a red light even if the bike doesn't trip the light.  Got a tip to

put magnets on the bottom of the bike and it may help so put two magnets on my bike yesterday.

I have gone through a red light when making a left turn because just sit there forever and can't

get over to make a right on red turn and try coming back through from a different direction. 

I know to look for the pads in the road and stop right at the stop line, just doesn't work at some

lights.

There were a lot of lawn mowers running last eve so wasn't quiet here.  Guess they were waiting

for the cooler evening air.  Would have preferred to live away from other hones but we were young

and poor when we moved here and couldn't be that picky.  Then the tornado caused us to invest

much more here.  Good chance wherever we lived so long ago, would've had others move in around

us by now anyway.  Glad to hear you got out a little for the mowing.

Have a great day.

Ernie

Hello everyone. Looks like summer has arrived. 

I went to a Mid-Summer festival near me last night. They had a huge Maypole. It was entertaining. 

Time to brave the heat. Enjoy

Good morning Kitty, Paul, and everyone.  69 out this morn, I remember Cocoa didn't like

jogging in these temps.  We have rain coming in a couple hours for a brief time.  Much

cooler day at 75 though.

Kitty, didn't you stop smoking in 2007?  So it's 15 years, right?

We have our grandboys and their dogs today while my daughter goes to NYC for dentist

appt.  Also, wife's parents are stopping by on the way back from a reunion.  I'm surprised

they attended the reunion, over 90 degrees and they are older than us.  They were going

to just stay at the house down there in PA.  Maybe they will stay a while and put up with

all the dogs.

I decided to take the old battery from daughter's garden tractor and get a new one, have

been jump starting it for a month.  I need to do the same for my wife's father, he's using

a booster box to jump his tractor.  Was surprised the battery wasn't closer to a full charge,

took about 5 hours for my 10 amp charger to get it there.

Mid Summer is a ways off, surprised they don't call it a Summer beginning festival, sounds

like fun.

Enjoy the day all.

I saw some people running yesterday and it was pretty brutal out.  Though younger and I guess healthier. The rain cooled it off some today.

I think Midsummer's name comes from being in the middle of the summer crop growing season. But officially it's the 21st for the Summer Solstice, so that may be an invented reason.

Be well everyone.
