While last night’s rain will have minimal impact on our drought, it will accomplish the task of ushering in colder air and dropping our daytime highs below 80 for the first time in many months. It may not happen today, but you just wait…
What Is The Purpose Of Water Towers?
I am serious.
While driving around rural Georgia I saw many water towers. While I can perhaps understand their need prior to modern-day plumbing, I cannot for today’s purposes. Do towns still store their water in these vessels for distribution? How do they get filled?
Explain it to me, or point me at a web site. I really would like to know.

You can find a lot of things when you are not necessarily looking for them.
Apparently Cordele, like many Georgia towns, used to have a drive-in theater. I had no idea, but while driving from Cordele to Vienna to attend the Big Pig Jig I found its marquee. Even more bizarre was that I peered through the trees and could see the back of the screen.
Watching The Worst-Kept Secret In The World
Last night I watched the final four episodes of the 2007 World Series of Poker’s Main Event. Having found out the winner months ago I was watching just to see what bizarre events transpired.
At one point last night I was confused and disturbed to watch one of the participants (the eventual winner) and one of the other participant’s girlfriend square off during one hand with calls to Jesus for luck; as far as I could tell the young lady was even quoting Scripture.
Now I am far from the most religious person that you will ever meet (see also my rants against “Big Brother 8″‘s Jameka and Amber, and “Survivor: China”‘s Leslie), but doesn’t it seem odd to be calling for The Almighty’s power to win, especially at gambling? Aren’t poker winnings ill-gotten gains?
Besides, I always figured Jesus to be more of a Black Jack player….
Finding Happiness By Eliminating The Unhappiness?
It’s funny when the things that bring me happiness don’t. It doesn’t take long to find out that I love to eat and drink beer. However the affects of the two items, along with my inability to motivate myself to exercise, have contributed to the one issue that makes me the most sad — my weight.
Having said that, I am planning on being at George’s tonight to run/walk. Please don’t feed me or offer me free beer. Mine will be a short night, both in distance and post-run festivities as I am still in the process of catching up with tasks around my house. Oh the travails of the home owner whose banks go out of business while traveling for three weeks in a row.
