Recently there was a major story on the top of the main Yahoo! page.
“Climate-change disasters kill 300,000 a year” (an Associated Press article deemed scientific enough for the front page of Yahoo!)
Yeah, the dreaded “climate change” is killing all of those poor people and not from overpopulation, over consumption, corrupt local governments, horrendous living conditions, or lack of medical care to fight common diseases. It’s climate change’s fault!
Once again, here in the metro Atlanta area we’re seeing another day of scattered pop-up thunderstorms as the afternoon progresses into the early evening.
Last night we had a nice, slow moving thunderstorm develop overhead and pour rain on us for over an hour.
Personally, I love thunderstorms and will always welcome the rainfall, especially after last year’s nasty drought and heavy water restrictions.
To many people, Memorial Day means the start of summer.
For those people still living in the Land of Cold (a.k.a. Michigan, my home state), it’s safe enough into the year to plant a garden and not worry about a late blast of frost.
More importantly, Memorial Day also means time to roll out the grill and start cooking outside again.

Yesterday’s running of the Indianapolis 500 was an interesting race.
Apart from the first wreck when Mario Moreas slid into Marco Andretti on the first lap, the race didn’t seem to have anything controversial. And to top it off, the weather held out and didn’t seem to play a factor into the race.
And Helio “Spider-Man” Castroneves had the perfect month from being acquitted of the tax charges to winning the pole to the Indianapolis 500 to winning the pit crew competition to winning the race.
In about forty-five minutes from now, the Indianapolis 500 will officially be underway and those drivers will be pushing between 225 and 230 mph on the straightaways.
Later this afternoon / early evening will be the NASCAR Coca-Cola 600 from Charlotte, North Carolina.
In one day we will have 1,100 miles of racing between the two top racing series.
But by having the IndyCar race and NASCAR race in the same day, you can really compare the two of them and see how NASCAR has been falling behind and basically shooting itself in the foot.
The commercial for the new 2010 Kia Soul car strikes me at being fairly amusing, especially with the hamsters driving around town and trying to look cool.
I find it amusing because that’s about all that the new car will be about to carry. Check out the full version of the commercial below.
The month of May in the sports world isn’t only about the NHL and NBA playoffs.
No, it also means coverage of the big build up to this year’s running of the Indianapolis 500 this weekend.
And naturally, it means nearly nonstop coverage of the media’s favorite driver, Danica Patrick.
Last October, the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds were in town and I had the opportunity of attending the first day of the airshow.
The skies were clear, the crowds were heavy, and the Thunderbirds and other aerial demonstrations looked outstanding.
I shot away with my camera and took close to 1,700 photos that day, and now the best of them (about 170 photos) are part of my growing online photo album. Hooray!
It was revealed today that an ancient fossil (a lemur-monkey, pictured above) may in fact be the missing link that finally proves the Charles Darwin Theory of Evolution to be correct and establish scientific proof that connects human beings to the rest of the primates and animal world.
Last night and today I finally added more pictures to my online photo album hosted here at RellimZone.com.
This time around the photos are focused on recent Fourth of July trips up to Lake Burton in the mountains in the northeastern part of the state and some of the waterfalls in neighboring North Carolina.
