The heat wave this week has interfered with getting yard work done. Even at 9 am it’s been too hot to work outside. Fortunately, I haven’t had anything that needed to get done right away.
The International Community of Christ is making a trip to South Africa in October to do some lectures and, hopefully, get some new members.
I hope the end of the space shuttle won’t mean the end of U. S. leadership in space exploration. NASA says it won’t, but that’s based on the assumption that private companies will be able to take over for the next several years until NASA is ready for more long distance space travel.
I’ve noticed while walking my dogs recently, an example of how nature strives to keep balance. Thanks to global warming, poison ivy is growing faster and spreading everywhere around where I live. It’s getting as bad as kudzu. I found some climbing a tree in my yard that went up about ten feet. But now I’m seeing some in the woodsy areas that has wilted leaves with pink zits on them. It looks like nature is giving at least some of the poison ivy some type of blight.
