About Me

Do not go gentle into that good night, Old age should burn and rave at close of day; Rage, rage against the dying of the light. Though wise men at their end know dark is right, Because their words had forked no lightning they Do not go gentle into that good night. Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay, Rage, rage against the dying of the light. Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight, And learn, too late, they grieve it on its way, Do not go gentle into that good night. Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay, Rage, rage against the dying of the light. ~~~~~~~~~ For, it ends in the blink of an eye. Carpe Diem (Seize the day)!

Rest in peace, Tom Petty

It sounds like there's a hitchhiker on the Hibiscus I brought in for tonight.

Maybe it's a tree frog.

Air Quality Alert Issued For Hudson Valley Thursday

Ground-level ozone is the pollutant in question.

By Michael Woyton (Patch Staff) - Updated August 3, 2017 10:58 am ET

HUDSON VALLEY, NY — Greater than normal air pollution expected for Thursday has led the state Department of Environmental Conservation to issue an air quality health advisory for most of the Hudson Valley. The air quality alert is in effect until 11 p.m. Thursday for Dutchess, Orange, Putnam, Rockland, Ulster and Westchester counties.

Air quality levels in outdoor air are predicted to be greater than an Air Quality Index value of 100 for the pollutant of Ground Level Ozone. The Air Quality Index — or AQI — was created as an easy way to correlate levels of different pollutants to one scale. The higher the AQI value, the greater the health concern.

When pollution levels are elevated, the New York State Department of Health recommends that individuals consider limiting strenuous outdoor physical activity to reduce the risk of adverse health effects. People who may be especially sensitive to the effects of elevated levels of pollutants include the very young and those with preexisting respiratory problems such as asthma or heart disease. Those with symptoms should consider consulting their personal physician.

A toll-free air quality hotline has been established so New York residents can stay informed on the air quality situation. The toll free number is 1-800-535-1345.

New York Agrees To Give Voter Info To Trump

BREAKING: The NY Board of Elections will comply with the feds and hand over the state's voter database. Here's what that means for you.

ALBANY, NY — Personal information about all New York voters will be released to President Donald Trump's controversial "election integrity" commission, the state Board of Elections announced Wednesday, despite promises from New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo that the state would withhold its voter database from the feds.

"We will comply," a spokesman for the Board of Elections told Patch. "The data will be sent out this afternoon."

Back in late June, after Trump's commission requested voter info from all 50 states, Gov. Cuomo said: “New York refuses to perpetuate the myth voter fraud played a role in our election. We will not be complying with this request, and I encourage the Election Commission to work on issues of vital importance to voters, including ballot access, rather than focus on debunked theories of voter fraud.”

However, each state's decision on whether to share its voter info with the feds — or with anyone else — is ultimately not up to the governor's office. It's up to the board of elections. And Wednesday, New York's board made the choice to comply.

Gov. Cuomo's office did not respond to a request for comment.


What The Data Dump Means For You ... at the link

I used very similar words as I explained the problems to my best friend.

Better now than in winter when opening the doors to do the repairs could give our house birds a unfortunate chill.

I think everything (except the AC) will be repaired or replaced sometime soon.


Thanks for your positive thoughts, hermetic.

That's 3 ...

Turned on the heat to dry out the excess moisture in the house due to July 23rd flood under the hot water heater.
Furnace started screaming. Shut the breaker (this shit is getting old). I'll call the gas company tomorrow. We have a service contract. Maybe this will be a small problem (small repair $$$ bill).

July 23rd https://www.democraticunderground.com/1018970554 Hot water tank cracked. Need a new one.

July 10th https://www.democraticunderground.com/1018966035 Central AC cooled for the last time.
