IN CHICAGO THEY DO THEIR HOMEWORK….

“The errors about Biden bring to mind the recent satirical report from humorist Andy Borowitz: “A member of the U.S. Olympic diving team was disqualified from competition today when it was learned that he did not have a sufficiently compelling human story line to exploit on the NBC telecast of the worldwide sporting event.”

Biden just didn’t have a sufficiently compelling human story line for a presidential campaign. Luckily, he does now.”

Dear Readers with the exception of one faithful reader… the national politics covered on this site…in recent days…due to the conventions…the political “chess game”…the captivating… mind boggling events…and a “lull” in LBTS politics…the response from local readers…and the growing numbers of readers far and wide… shows it has been well received…and all are welcome to add their two cents….such as the last post with the George Bush site…I encourage you do so….it broadens the scope of information for the readers as well as this writer…

Update…Sarah”s 1st “Sausage” Day….

August 30, 2008 by Barbara

REPUBLICAN V P NOMINEE….SARAH PALIN’S “SAUSAGE” ….DAY 1…

QUOTATION OF THE DAY
“Hillary left 18 million cracks in the highest, hardest glass ceiling in America, but it turns out the women of America aren’t finished yet, and we can shatter that glass ceiling once and for all.”
GOV. SARAH PALIN, of Alaska.

WELCOME FROM THE “BIG BOYS”……..

“Obama campaign highlights Palin’s ‘zero’ experience”

“Affirmative action….

Boykin, a graduate of Dartmouth and Harvard Law, was debating the selection with Republican Joe Watkins at the end of MSNBC’s 4 PM EDT hour. After some preliminary jousting, Boykin dropped his bomb.

KEITH BOYKIN Let me just say something about this choice. The reason why she doesn’t help, quite frankly, is because it’s an insult. It’s an insult to women. I spoke to several women today at the Democratic National Convention who said it’s insulting John McCain would pick somebody—an affirmative-action candidate basically—who is not qualified.”

“McCain’s Palin pick is the epitome of tokenism

Suddenly all anyone needs to qualify as a potential commander in chief is to be a religious ideologue with female gender characteristics?”

By Joe Conason

“Wexler: Palin a ‘far-right, pro-life zealot’”

“CNN: Hey, won’t Palin be neglecting her Down’s syndrome baby?”

“If she’s only on the ticket to try to get disaffected Clinton supporters to cross over, it’s a bad choice. Joe Biden may already be practicing his drop-dead line for the vice-presidential debate: “I know Hillary Clinton. Hillary Clinton is a friend of mine, and governor, you’re no Hillary Clinton.”

“Fasten your seat belts…..it’s going to be a bumpy ride!”….

Birdie: “What a story! Everything but the bloodhounds snappin’ at her rear end.”

Sea Ranch Club 8/27/08

August 30, 2008 by Barbara

Areas Association Board Meeting…8/27/08

The shutters are still up in the Ocean Room…with…3-4 potential disturbances…lurking in the waters…good thing!…..

Update…the shutters…were not put on properly…and have pretty much been re-aligned …still requiring a tweak or two…

Jonathan …Landscape Foreman…brought us up to date with the tree trimming ongoing…bringing pleased responses from many…

He also updated on the pest control over the chinch bugs….previous post… and the installation of palm trees at B pool and plants…

Also brought up…he asked for a trailer to  be purchased for pick-up and delivery of items that will save his truck from any damage….

The board asked him to check one prospect out…and agreed it would be acceptable to get one…this one or another…

Responses have been received for the Maintenance Foreman position…with one applicant that was expected to come in for an interview this day….

Building A pool heater will now be ordered …after the Manager did some more investigating and decided a change to a commercial heater was the way to go…at a minimal increase in cost…but a switch that brings with it a warranty…a service agreement…that will be included with the previous service contract from B & B pools…

Building A pump needs to be replaced next week…….

Weather delays and illness ….still plague the C tennis courts being finished…

Still waiting for all bids on the cabana plumbing….

Leaks in the garages are ongoing…great results…but increased time and work…found after the torrential rains last week….

Expansion joint work…still waiting for scheduling…

Much discussion over the B pool structure…discussed last week also …still leery of conflicting reports on the membrane…it was decided to get another opinion …someone to cut out a piece of the outer shell on all three pools and see what is really in-between….

The pool personnel…will be out at night over Labor Day….

Also addressed …. people coming off the beach to use the facilities…and whether No Trespassing signs should be put up…the answer was no…due to problems with the signs..per Broward County…the signs we presently have will be replaced after hurricane season….

The buildings will meet separately to address the budget on Oct. 2,2008… throughout the day with the Comptroller …a change of day due to the Jewish High Holy Days…

Still no Comcast delivery of the contract….

Next meeting …..residents might want to attend….a presentation by new Building B Manager Brenda Callahan on replacing our lights with cost savings…and energy efficient LED light bulbs….

The bill for one month …..for two of the three buildings ….$23-28 thousand!…

Ms. Callahan did research and wrote an article…not yet published with numerous sites used as sources…
