California Wildfires

On August 15th, lightning strikes started hundreds of fires across Northern California. Gov. Gavin Newsom said that California had recorded nearly 11,000 lightning strikes in a 72 hour peroid. Fueled by strong winds and unusually hot weather the fires have continued to spread. There are over 100 fires burning throughout the state and resources and personell are strained to say the least.

We pray that the 12 confirmed deaths do not rise. The property can be replaced but not the lives.

There are now 12 confirmed deaths due to the fires and several missing; well over 3-million acres have burned and there are over 100 known fires spread throughout the state; the Apple fire in Riverside County has been burning since July 31, over 40 days, and consumed over 33,400 acres and is reported 95% contained. The fire reportedly was started by a malfnctioning diesel vehicle. .
Wonder what the total acreage of the United States might be? Just under 2.5 BILLION ACRES.

1776 & 1941

 The Fourth of July—also known as Independence Day or July 4th—has been a federal holiday in the United States since 1941, but the tradition of Independence Day celebrations goes back to the 18th century and the American Revolution. On July 2nd, 1776, the Continental Congress voted in favor of independence, and two days later delegates from the 13 colonies adopted the Declaration of Independence, a historic document drafted by Thomas Jefferson. From 1776 to the present day, July 4th has been celebrated as the birth of American independence, with festivities ranging from fireworks, parades and concerts to more casual family gatherings and barbecues. The Fourth of July 2020 is on Saturday, July 4, 2020.

The Covid 19 Pandemic seems to be hanging around even though much of the population is choosing to act as though they are immune.

Likewise the protest over the George Floyd killing are still active but mostly non-violent.

Tomorrow I hope to be able to post some of the page updates on the website.

Secretariat Performed This Spectacular Display on June 9, 1973

With a spectacular victory at the Belmont Stakes, Secretariat becomes the first horse since Citation in 1948 to win America’s coveted Triple Crown: the Kentucky Derby, the Preakness and the Belmont Stakes. In one of the finest performances in racing history, Secretariat, ridden by Ron Turcotte, completed the 1.5-mile race in 2 minutes and 24 seconds, a dirt-track record for that distance.

On June 9, 1973, almost 100,000 people came to Belmont Park near New York City to see if “Big Red” would become the first horse in 25 years to win the Triple Crown. Secretariat gave the finest performance of his career in the Belmont Stakes, completing the 1.5-mile race in a record 2 minutes and 24 seconds, knocking nearly three seconds off the track record set by Gallant Man in 1957. He also won by a record 31 lengths.

Ron Turcotte, who jockeyed Secretariat in all but three of his races, claimed that at Belmont he lost control of Secretariat and that the horse sprinted into history on his own accord.

Secretariat would race six more times, winning four and finishing second twice. In November 1973, the “horse of the century” was retired and put to stud at Claiborne Farm in Paris, Kentucky. Among his notable offspring is the 1988 Preakness and Belmont winner, Risen Star. Secretariat was euthanized in 1989 after falling ill. An autopsy showed that his heart was two and a half times larger than that of the average horse, which may have contributed to his extraordinary racing abilities. In 1999, ESPN ranked Secretariat No. 35 in its list of the Top 50 North American athletes of the 20th century, the only non-human on the list.

marked the 100th anniversary of The United States of Americas entry in World War I and that move cost the lives of about 117,000 Americans or Doughboys.

I don't have time to get any of those anchors set today but I am working in that direction.

If one should think ("this person doesn't know wtf they are doing") then you will be correct. Please forgive me. I am no longer very young and many things seem to escape me, neither seeking nor having my consent! Alas!

Even this feeble explanation is likely not needed in that most likely only I shall read it.

I am studying the disease "peripheral neuropathy" because I think I am afflicted with it.

The content I post here is all from other peoples work and I will attempt to always give credit to the originator if known. Additionally, I will post the links to the sites where I acquire the information or intend to do so all the time.

I am also thinking of using this area for bits of information that may have been overlooked in another area of the page.
