Drew takes a 10 minute break to try and get at least one post up per day. Running myself ragged here. I haven’t even had breakfast yet but I’ve already put down carpet in one closet, swapped in a fancy showerhead, put a coat of paint in another closet, and decided how I’m going to modify one of the built in bookcases so that it has a power outlet and a cable TV outlet in the base and one off the front corner, mostly out of sight. Just in case someone wants to change my mind about where to put the stereo and TV later on. I’ll be gol-durned if I’m going to unmount these 7 foot tall chunks of oak from the wall ever again. But I am making progress. Got a mess of stuff done yesterday, including getting the stove hood vent pipe opened up to the outside (idiot vinyl siding guys put up siding right over the hole, duh) and redrilled the front door deadbolt to fit the newer, larger diameter lockset. And I got the WiFi up and running, although I still haven’t figured out how to get Outlook Express functional again. Ok, on to a bit of blogging.
Israel moved closer to an all-out ground war with Hamas Thursday, as Israeli planes, tanks and gunboats pounded suspected militant positions in Gaza in retaliation for another day of Hamas rocket attacks that left at least three Israelis dead.
Tel Aviv residents say they heard an explosion following an air-raid alert across the city, raising fears of a Gaza rocket strike on Israel’s commercial capital.
Israeli authorities were trying to determine where the rocket may have landed on Thursday. Eli Bean, the head of Israel’s rescue service, says no injuries have been reported.
Israeli military spokesman Brig. Gen. Yoav Mordechai says nothing landed on the ground, raising the possibility it fell in the sea.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told reporters on Thursday that Israel could no longer stand repeated attacks on its southern towns. He said that Israel has “made it clear” it won’t tolerate continued rocket fire on its civilians.
Earlier, Netanyahu had declared, “If there is a need, the military is prepared to expand the operation. We will continue to do everything to protect our citizens.”
Egypt’s Islamist president has ordered his prime minister to lead a senior delegation to Gaza in a show of support for the coastal strip’s Hamas rulers in the face of Israel’s offensive.
State television said Thursday that, on orders from President Mohammed Morsi, Hesham Kandil will go to Gaza Friday. It said the delegation will also try and meet the “urgent needs” of Gaza residents.
Earlier on Thursday, Morsi vowed to work to stop Israel’s campaign against Hamas, calling the Jewish state’s actions there “unacceptable.”
So glad that our Muslim-In-Chief helped oust that
benevolent evil despot in Egypt so that he could be replaced by a bunch of terrorist jihad jackwads. Way to go Ibn Barak, way to go.
Hot Diggidy, a Muslim/Jew war and it only took a week after the re-election of Captain Wonderful. Grab the Popcorn .
