I was going to finish cutting the grass that I didn't finish yesterday. Um, it's 91 F outside -- that's 32.8 C for you other guys who use the wrong temp scale ;) -- and there is an air quality alert in effect for my area right now too. I think I'll wait another day to finish cutting the grass.

Ground out another $1.35 at poker today. Yeah, nothing to write to Giorgio Napolitano about, especially since I don't even know the Italian president.

After H asked what website I was learning Esperanto at, I realized that I'm almost through with the lessons they have there, and started thinking what I'd do when I do get through the last lesson.

I think I know the site I'll switch to. My first impression of it makes me think it's orientated toward kids though, lernu.net. At least that site is both free and actively teaches Esperanto, the one I'm working with now hasn't been updated since the mid '90s from a little last update note I saw.

Wow, just heard on the radio that Don LaFontaine and Jerry Reed both died. :/

It's a pity about that Mr. LaFontaine. His voice was quite special. It's a good thing that Pablo Francisco does a quite impressive imitation of his voice.



As for the other guy, I only vaguely remember him (after doing a google picture search).

Anyway I hope the weather will give you a break and you'll be able to finish cutting the grass before long. :)

I hadn't heard of Pablo Francisco. He is a good impressionist.

As for Jerry Reed, well, to really know him I think you'd need to have been living in the US during the late 1970's to really remember him.

He hasn't really been in the spotlight in decades. I mostly remember him because for a grade school thing way back when, I lip sinked to one of his lesser known songs. I remember that more than for his being in the Smokey and the Bandit movies or the hit country songs he had which are prob. his two greatest claims to fame.

I thought that's where I had seen this guy before. I loved those "Smokey and the Bandit" movies with "Buffort T. (something)" being the exact role model for Sheriff Rosco from the Dukes Of Hazard. Lol!
