flag day, bad e coli, cws


today is flag day
here is a good website that will tell you more than you
want to know about the flag
it is http://www.pueblo.gsa.gov/

flag day was officially established by a proclamation
signed by president truman in 1949 that made this day
the national flag day

go to http://www.usflag.org/history/flagday.html to read
more about the history of flag day

so that e coli that is causing illness is europe is a super toxic e coli

wonder if we have messed with mother nature a little too much
and we are paying for it now

different bacteria can exchange genetic material that makes
them more resistant to our antibiotics and a toxic bug can give
the genetic info to another bacteria and so it goes

saw a show on 60 minutes about a scientist that has developed
an artificial bacteria from scratch-he made the dna and genes
that make the organism work
thats scary isnt it

this new artificial bacteria may be used to make all kind of stuff

already e coli is used to make insulin, medicines, gasoline, break
down gasoline, eat algae,etc

sure could think of a lot of bad things that could happen from all of
this couldnt you
maybe stephen king needs to write one of his horror books about it

its not nice to mess with mother nature
she always wins in the end

whats the cws-its the college world series
its one of the few times i watch baseball on tv
used to like to play it or watch my kids play but
usually find it boring to watch on tv
however i enjoy the cws

this year both the texas longhorns and the texas am aggies are
in the cws together
they tied for their conference title
anytime either teams plays each other or competes in anything its
a great rivalry
sometimes it gets a little too passionate
it can ruin families, romances, split up schools, ruin businesses etc

(if you live in arkansas its the feeling arkansans have against the
texas longhorns and even though they havent been established
opponents in years the feeling of animosity still exists)

what a great cws it would be at least in texas if the two had
to play again to determine the winner of the cws

well see
