Hiroshima August 6, 1945

 

On August 6, 1945, the United States becomes the first and only nation to use atomic weaponry during wartime when it drops an atomic bomb on the Japanese city of Hiroshima. Approximately 80,000 people are killed as a direct result of the blast, and another 35,000 are injured. At least another 60,000 would be dead by the end of the year from the effects of the fallout.

Yep its a Buzzard

 Today is the first day I've seen a buzzard. They are a little
early this year (2/27/21)



I'm a bad person - left them 1 star

 I am 20 miles away. They may fix it in 2 months. Short handed.

Response from the owner 22 hours ago
Oh wow!! I’m the one that spoke to you on the phone and told you we were short staffed due to a NATIONAL PANDEMIC, you are literally going to leave a one star review for being understaffed??? Small businesses have literally closed up due to this and we are trying our hardest to do the best we can. It’s people like you that give a bad name to the human race!!! We are a small family owned business try our damnedest to do everything we can to serve everyone, we also have a training program of 3 months for all new employees if you can’t except the fact that we want to ensure that our employees are certified and trained properly to fix all and any appliances possible then we definitely do not want you as a customer! We take pride in our work and you must take pride in being a keyboard warrior! Shame on you for knocking a business that is short staffed during a NATIONAL PANDEMIC!!! You sir are a real piece of work!!!! My name is Jessica and if you have any more problems with how we run our business then you call me I’ll be glad to tell you what I think about you as a person!!!.

********* "definitely do not want you as a customer!"
Don't worry.

INDIANA WEATHER

 As you know people in Indiana are suffering from an unusually heavy snow storm, but as this picture shows Winter is almost over as we can see the deer wandering around now.



The common cold

 The common cold, also known simply as a cold, is a viral infectious disease of the upper respiratory tract that primarily affects the respiratory mucosa of the nose, throat, sinuses, and larynx. Signs and symptoms may appear less than two days after exposure to the virus. These may include coughing, sore throat, runny nose, sneezing, headache, and fever. People usually recover in seven to ten days, but some symptoms may last up to three weeks. Occasionally, those with other health problems may develop pneumonia.

Peggy the Flying Red Horse in Lawrenceburg

Built to "pull wheelies" in parades, Peggy is housed in Lawrenceburg behind glass so everyone can see it. https://www.roadsideamerica.com/tip/59391 

Peggy was built in 1935 by Frank Taylor, who lived north of town and was a Mobil Oil distributor. That's where he got the winged red horse ("Peggy" is short for Pegasus) that he bolted to a Model T, which he modified to buck like a bronco. Peggy was the acknowledged "king" of the American Legion clown cars. Frank drove the car in hundreds of parades well into his eighties.
