Corn Is Your Enemy

I was reading around a few different things this morning and of the many items I ran across such as Clark Gable’s grandson being arrested and facing three years of prison if convicted of pointing a laser at a passing airplane, and the fact today marks the 7th anniversary of Laura Branigan’s death; none were so compelling as the item about the temporary closing of a certain Nashville, Tennessee interstate highway ramp. It was due to the loss of four propane-sized containers of bull semen.  According to a transportation spokesperson, the smoking canisters (due to the dry ice) which began to emit a foul odor, was “…no different to us than if a mattress fell off a truck”. 

Well, what better way to close out a week that began with an earthquake than with a hurricane. From the sounds of it, it’s going to be the storm of the century and several shore towns have been ordered to evacuate. We’re prepared, too. We cancelled the family get together that was supposed to happen on Saturday and we’re armed with a bunch of recipes for summer squash.

Everything here in the house is electric–and by everything I mean the pump for the well (I really mean we can’t flush the toilets if the power goes out) and the stove….

But nothing says preparation quite like this:

Stay safe all!
