A Rant and Still Hot

Rantoul, IL.

68 deg. clear, no wind.

Forecast = Mostly sunny. Highs in the mid 90s. Southeast winds 10 to 15 mph.

We have a leak!!!!

That's the excuse that the oil companies are giving to raise the prices as much as 30 cents a gallon for gasoline here in the Midwest!!!

Yep, they're saying that they have to shut down the pipeline coming down here from Canada for repairs, so it's immediately causing the price of gas at the pumps to go up that much!!!

Come on!!!! Do they really think anyone believes that?????  It's just another excuse to raise the prices that are finally down some from their last major "Issue"!!!!!

OK, I got that off of my roof!!! Sorry about the rant..  : { 

Jim took another bike ride yesterday morning. The last time he rode his bike was way back in February, when we were in Florida, so he has been trying to take a longer bike ride each day. He says that he's really out of condition and is trying to build up leg strength and stamina. He still doesn't go very far, but each time out there is an improvement.

By about 10:00, the temperatures were already up into the 80's and by mid-afternoon, the thermometer was reading 95 degrees. : (  So, it was another inside day for most everyone here in the park.

Don't think there's anything planned for today. It's supposed to be hot again. Linda says that one of these days they'll need to go to the grocery store and has started a list, Jim will probably go for another bike ride, and I imagine that both of them will be watching some more of the Olympic Games on TV.

Did you know that the first women's swimming gold medal was won by the Australian Sarah 'Fanny' Durack, who won the 100m freestyle in 1912?
