Wind Turbine Syndrome a placebo affect

A week ago we discussed Wind Turbines causing illnesses.

This article shows that one side is clearly winning the legal cases brought forth by the two sides. The winners thus far have been the turbine companies.

In many of the cases the courts are ruling that a "placebo affect" is taking place that people are thinking the turbines are bad for them and psychologically they then become sick.

‘I don't want presents this year. I want to donate 101 pairs of shoes to kids that don't have shoes!

HOPKINS COUNTY, KY (5/18/12) – For their birthdays, most 6-year-olds want presents and cake. Not 6-year-old Jasmine “Jazzy” Larkins (pictured on far right beside her mother, and older sister Lilly). Jazzy has requested something much different for her 7th birthday this year on June 9th.

Toledo City Council Wisdom

According to Council President Wilma Brown- " I have a comment to tell you why I'm going to vote no on this. It's because the kids in the central city that would be going to Smith pool won't be able to go to some of the others because they are not welcome. We got quite a few complaints about our kids going to another pool. So if you can't find money for Smith pool I will be voting no."

If you look to left you will see no shame (or dignity)...

Unless you've been living under a rock or have been completely consumed by the Royal Wedding, you have undoubtedly heard of the massive devastation that occurred this week in many of our southern states. Even more heart-breaking is that the death toll is now over 300. When something this horrible happens, it almost goes without saying, that we will see an outpouring of support ranging from prayers to material assistance. I know there were many prayers said around here last summer.

Unfortunately, it appears we won't see much in terms of support from the leftist hacks over at ThinkProgress.

Continued after the fold...

Snow well to the south of us!

Just checked in with NWS Houston. The preliminary daily climate summary up to 1700hrsCDT showed 0.8" of snow had fallen. This would make it the earliest snowfall on record. Heavier amounts were reported around the area. Winter storm warnings continue for a while yet and shift ENE into Louisianna and central MS as the evening wears on. Feel for those folks as they don't have plows and too many spreaders...

What is this, Christmas in July?

Not quite, but this unseasonably chilly midsummer month is about to break cold-weather records throughout the Midwest -- some more than 100 years old.

Meteorologists from Madison, Wis., to Chicago to Toledo, Akron and Columbus -- and dozens of cities in between -- are watching their thermometers as the month winds down.

Americans for Prosperity "Hot Air Balloon Stop" At UT

Carter Field is located directly across from the campus Rec Center and is on the corner of Oakwood and N. Westwood.

CNN Breaking News: 100 idiots trapped on ice near Toledo

You just gotta love it..... Flipping thru channels, and as I pass CNN, I see a map of Lucas County on the screen. I stopped and went back (like I'd watch CNN, puh-leeze), and sure enough we are currently breaking news. 51 degrees here, and 100 idiots decided to go ice fishing. Gee, the ice is breaking up and they are trapped..... Apparently both Lucas and Ottawa Counties are involved in the rescue.

What's your impression of the snow removal efforts on the City of Toledo streets for the latest storm?

Flood plain update stirs fears

Sam Phillips remembers the flood of 1973, when a few inches of rocks protected his Point Place house from the crashing waves of Lake Erie.

The water threatened, but it never entered his Lakeside Avenue house. Others in Point Place, though, weren't as lucky.

Iowa's Resillient Residents

The people of Iowa are a shining example of how American communities can really come together in times of need and disaster. They are not whining, not blaming the Feds, not shooting at rescuers and I haven't seen any reports of looting either. A testament to the Midwest mentality.

Odd weather and enviornment

Ok...tonight this was a storm. The wind was blowing quite bad.

Have you noticed that the weather and other events are really strange? Earthquakes, storms, tornados, and monsoons. It just seems like a lot going on. What do you think?

Tonight's storm, two worlds apart?

So I was watching 13abc after the sirens went off thinking something may be bad. Well I looked at the radar, heard the commentary, and thought oh we will get a bad one. I once I saw the rain approaching, I went and shut our windows so the rain would not come in. I waited and waited. Well I was disappointed that there was only enough rain to wet the sidewalk.

Rainy Sunday

As I sit here at Beaner's (err...Biggby's) enjoying a grande size $3.00 Latte (and their Free Wi-Fi) on this Sunday morning, the sound of rain hitting the window panes and the Sweet Jazz emiting from the sound system I am immersed in a Sea of Tranquility far away and outside the world of Political Talking heads on the TV, the reading of the latest escapades of Mayor Finkbeiner in the Toledo Blade


I just got in Toledo after having driven all day from Delray Beach, Florida.
What a great vacation I had. I recommend Florida to anyone.

My plane landed in Orlando about a month ago and I have been having a ball ever since.
Up one coast and down the other.

Florida has it all - you name it.
Fishing, swimming, Disneyworld, Golf, great weather !!!!

Blizzard Bill will now be on 13abc

Blizzard Bill Spencer is moving to 13abc. I thought he was covered under a franchise contract at NBC 24. Why not? The presidential election will ensure there is lots of money flowing this year to the TV stations.
