Living in the Ponderosa Pines

They're calling it the "Tinder Fire", and it is threatening the White Wolf Mine. The area has been evacuated.

The project is insured, but I'd be sad if the hovel burned. The metal roof was scheduled to go on the place this coming week, but it won't if the place is destroyed or if the road closures remain in effect.

Rain is forecast for Tuesday and Wednesday. I can only hope that the rain finishes stopping the embers. 

High winds today prevented aircraft from dropping retardant onto the fire.

If people are to be believed, everyone around Cosby (with the possible exception of the sponsors who lavished him with money and goodies to obtain his endorsement) knew that he was into drugging and then raping women.

We all know that if you're famous, getting laid is about the easiest thing that happens. However, that didn't scratch the itch for Cosby. The women needed to be drugged, and unconscious. Bill might have been into necrophilia as well. We don't know the answer, but the dead are said not to complain to the police - or to turn up pregnant with the comedian's seed in them. He'd have been better off if he'd stuck to corpses.

Will the famous old star end up in general population with a cannon ball and chain welded to an ankle ring? I don't know, but to me, he deserves it.
