I guess the Nobel Peace Prize just doesn’t mean what it used to. The US Military bombed a hospital in Afghanistan that was being run by Doctors Without Borders.

Went to Draper City Court today for my parking ticket that was issued to my license plate while my car was parked in my garage in Sandy Utah. I told the judge I was not guilty and now I have a trial date for November. The city prosecutor will issue a subpoena for the officer who wrote the ticket. This is for a $40 parking ticket that someone entered into the system incorrectly. My only defense is my word. Here is your daily dose of freedom.

Got a parking ticket in the mail for a time and place that my car was not at. Not sure how I prove my innocence, but I’m scheduled for a court appearance. Do your job right as your incompetency or lack of effort may put hardships on others.

The Quail Hollow Fire that started today near my home. I saw the header get started while on my bike ride. Here are a couple of photos from near my home.

MLB.TV you disappointed me again. I was gullible enough to sign up for your MLB.TV service a few years ago, and I fell for temptation again here at the end of the season with your $10 sale. Now I remember why I didn’t subscribe again. All of those stupid blackouts of when I can’t see a live game. Tonight, I was going to sit down and watch the Cubs game and you sold your soul to ESPN instead of letting your fans enjoy a game. This only affirms why I stopped watching baseball a few years ago.

Last fall I started construction on an 80+ foot long water feature for our back yard. I hired Brian Male of Alchemy Group to help me with it. Most of the rocks came from my parent’s yard who had a water feature that they didn’t want any more. Some rocks were also found in my yard. It has a switch with a photo sensor that turns on at sunset. It is set to run for 4 hours into the evening so we can here it when we got to bed at night. The switch also supports a remote control for us to turn on when ever we like. Mostly, we just enjoy sitting out on the back porch and enjoying the sound of the water.

Today in Utah, its Pioneer Day. For the LDS people its a big historical celebration of their ancestors crossing the plains to settle here in UT. It is also a state holiday. For us gentiles, its a random day where things aren’t open and epic amounts of fireworks are shot that rival the 4th of July while I try to keep my dogs from freaking out because they think that once again this month the world is coming to an end.

Made it to the top of Little Cottonwood Canyon today on my first ride up. Checked off a goal for 2015.

I tell people who come to Utah, that there’s two things Utah people like

  • Fireworks
  • Guns

Apparently, blowing things up is popular here. I agree, those are fun things to do. Its quite the spectacle on July 4th and July 24th (Pioneer Day, its a LDS UT thing).

July 4th is coming up. I recently saw this posted on the Sandy City FB page regarding fireworks

To celebrate Independence day, the day we declared our freedom from tyranny, you may shoot and buy fireworks but only on certain days and times. Shooting is limited to July 1st – July 7th from 11AM – 11PM. And you can not use

  • Firecrackers
  • M-80s
  • Cherry bombs
  • Bottle-rockets
  • Roman candles
  • Single or re loadable mortars
  • Ground salutes Any other explosive obtained outside of Utah borders.

Am I the only one who sees the irony of this? You may celebrate your freedom but you must do what we say and when we say you can.

Firecrackers? Really? Firecrackers were the first fireworks my dad ever let me light as a small child. It was considered the safe one for me to do outside of sparklers. Nanny state…..

I know there’s probably good reasons for some of the rules, but you have to at least laugh at the irony. Or get angry, your choice. It is a “free” country after all.

I do have mixed feelings on the decision. As a Christian, I don’t like the idea of the homosexual lifestyle. As a freedom loving American, I also don’t like the idea of our government saying what people can and can’t do with their personal lives. Instead of being upset, one of the pastors of our church put this up on Facebook. It says all I need it to.

1 Why do the nations rage
and the peoples plot in vain?
2The kings of the earth set themselves,
and the rulers take counsel together,
against the Lord and against his Anointed, saying,
3“Let us burst their bonds apart
and cast away their cords from us.”
4He who sits in the heavens laughs;
the Lord holds them in derision.
5Then he will speak to them in his wrath,
and terrify them in his fury, saying,
6“As for me, I have set my King
on Zion, my holy hill.”

Psalm 2:1-6

The pastor’s paraphrase: “The nations can try to legislate what they want, but God sits in heaven and laughs, and will hold them in derision … Jesus still reigns.”
