    Excitement

    Things got a little exciting around here Sunday afternoon. First a helicopter spraying weeds hit a power line and crashed. Pilot is OK. Then Bar B Que grill fire set a house on fire. Pretty well gutted the house.

    Ok I will bite. Why were they using the barbecue inside the house?
    If it isnt broken, dont repair it.

    Local ordinances prohibit the use of grills on apartment decks because of the fire risk. I do not think grilling at one's own home is restricted. Wherever there is fire one must always pay attention to it.

    People here in Maine are foolish. From running generators in their home, be cause it was too cold to refuel the generator outside. To burning their houses down with the barbecue because they thought "wouldnt it be great to have that smokey smell inside". Yeah, they are that bright around here.

    Do not limit that level of ingrained stupidity to your area; it is indeed nationwide and spreading! They schools teach a lot of things that just make no sense. Look at a 6th grade math book. It is more to cause confusion than to help someone live in the real world. They can not even figure out that 1/2 dozen is six without going through 14 or 15 steps! Our country is being "dumbed down" on purpose! Much easier to herd sheep than wolves!

    That's the kind of excitement nobody needs.
