Judgement Day

Moab, Utah

Unless you've been under a rock, you are probably aware that Harold Camping, 89 year old California evangelical broadcaster, made a second attempt to call the end of the world at 6PM local time everywhere, beginning in New Zealand. It was sort of a rolling Judgement Day. The Apocalypse is running late.


Elsewhere in world news, Venezuela made a first by suspending a driver's license for 12 months. Ramon Parra, 41,  was arrested for driving an overloaded bus with a missing rear wheel. Gas costs 12 cents a gallon in Venezuela and they take driving rights very seriously. This is the first license suspension ever for this OPEC country.


We've moved even further east to Moab. It's a very busy place in the Spring. I lost in tennis to Mrs. Phred 6-3, 6-2. I no longer feel short of breath when she runs me around the court. It's surprising how my breathing has improved since I quit smoking. What was I thinking the last 55 years?


There are two lovely National Parks here. One is Arches. The other is Canyonlands.


The Colorado River tuns though here, creating many recreational opportunities: camping, rock climbing, jeeping in the back country, rafting, canoeing and canyoneering. I don't exactly know what the last one is, but it's advertised everywhere.



The rains are finally bringing out the prickly pear flowers.
