The electricity went out due to frequent rain & lightning. It made presence yesterday when I sat to write in this thread. To be in safety, people must unplug the fridge, TV, computer etc. during it. Today now it's sunny - favorite type weather. The frequent rain's annoying, it makes everybody bored, some dumb people decided to walk in the rain, they even laughed. Their problem if they start coughing & sneezing. "Columbo" series don't show by Fridays-Sundays. Therefore, today's plan to see is documentary about some guy arriving to cities to help the local hotels from going bankrupt - by rebuilding, new standards, new furniture, dealing with administrators, doing the right talks with people who threatened to shut down the hotel etc. It's interesting. The cat lies in his basket with orange checkers & rounds in bright yellow background - good friendly colors.

Yes, indeed, don't mess with electrical storms. Lightning can cause some serious problems.
Many years ago, a lightning strike at our country place caused one of our light bulbs to explode. Very impressive!

Have been dealing with the weather. Yesterday we started having some rain, then some more, more, more, more...  20+ cm worth in 3 hours!
Lots of flooding and lots of angry people in the city today.

I took a video of our neighborhood late yesterday afternoon. Sounds like I ingested some helium LOL; my speaking voice is usually lower!

Yes, the weather's been wacko everywhere. There was flooding in Las Vegas yesterday, also in Los Angeles a couple of days ago.

Drove to a sister's house to watch TV of the eclipse in the US. Down here the eclipse was 75%, enough to darken the sky just a bit and confuse the crickets into starting their noisy racket. It was great watching the total eclipse events moving west to east throughout the country.
Another one of my sisters left at 3:30 in the morning from Laurel, Maryland, and drove about 700 km to Greenville, South Carolina, where she saw the total eclipse in a parking lot. When over, she got back in her car and drove back to Maryland!

Was thinking about songs relating to planets, the sun, moon, stars etc, Decided to play 8.

 Solar System - Beach Boys
How High the Moon - Les Paul/Mary Ford
Moonshadow- Cat Stevens
Shining Star - Earth, Wind and Fire
Total Eclipse of the Heart - Bonnie Tyler
Moondance- Van Morrison
Here Comes the Sun - Beatles
The Warmth of the Sun - Beach Boys

That's interesting, E. I have this "Crazy 8" topic at my other board (my other other board these days) and I was just planning one of eight titles with the word "planet" in them.

Today, however, I made Milk Bottle Man. He has since joined Baker Man and Toothbrush Man on the shelf in the living room.

All three gentlemen are made of Lego. Baker Man relocates to the kitchen top when a new loaf is to be taken out of the freezer that night. Toothbrush Man is to remind me to brush the dog's teeth every evening at eight after the news on TV.

Like Baker Man, Milk Bottle Man is to relocate to the kitchen top when there's only one packet of milk left and we need to buy more.

I'll add a snapshot of this unlikely trio some time.

Yes, please post that if you can.
We have a Lego club at one of our libraries. There's an age restriction - no one under 21 years of age can attend because booze is served. Bet by the end of the afternoon there are some interesting Lego creations!

I'm sure these are very primitive in comparison (booze or no booze) but all they do is convey a message. Regrettably Baker Man's rolling pin went missing a while back and now he's stuck with a plank. That's Toothbrush Man in the middle, if you hadn't already guessed. Milk Bottle Man's platform soles are a reference to the days when milk came in bottles rather than cartons...

Cool!

Ah, milk in glass bottles. Don't remember getting them at our house, just remember cartons.
However, my Grandmother would get the glass bottles. Her milk wasn't homogenized so the cream was at the top. When we visited her we would fight over who would get the cream. Good memories.
