Can I get an "amen" from the crowd!!!
It was a gorgeous day today in SoCal. Clear and mid 90's. Still a lot of snow on the local mountains from our wet winter. I went for a bike ride at Bonelli Park today. I guess I'm a little out of shape as two laps kicked my butt. Lots of water in the lake as well. The dirt road at the west end of the airport I usually use is under water in several places.

Recent Wisconsin protest sign against Governor Walker with a little thought put into it.
While this is a cute photo, as you can imagine, I have to disagree with it's message. I 've started re-reading "god is not Great" BY Christopher Hitchens again. I recommend it.
I see that the United States has found another sand box to play war in. I think assisting Libya with it's fight for liberty is a good idea, and we are not doing it alone. Gidaffi is promising a long fight. Let's hope not.

Today is the first day of Spring. According to the "The Old Farmers Almanac", "at the start of Spring - the vernal equinox - day and night are each approximately 12 hours long in the Northern Hemisphere. The Sun crosses the celestrial equator going northward; it rises exactly due east and sets exactly due west."

It started to sprinkle here in Ontario at about 10:00 am Sunday. Supposed to be a big storm. So we're on "Storm Watch" here in SoCal.

Perhaps I need to update my wardrobe!!!
Spent a good portion of the day glued to the television watching the news coverage of the 8.9 earthquake and subsequent tsunami in Japan. I also watched some really cool coverage on channel 5 this morning watching the tsunami hit the Southern Californian coast.
