The toughest critter on earth is not the honey badger or the wolverine but something called the tardigrade. The tardigrade holds the record for surviving the highest temperature by a living thing at 151 C (303.8 F) and the lowest which is -273 C (-459.4 F) which is a touch above absolute zero.
Gov. Tom Wolf and Secretary of State Pedro Cortes unveiled Pennsylvania’s online voting registration system, yesterday, Aug. 28.
Pennsylvania becomes the 23rd state to allow online voting.
The new policy is an administrative act by Wolf as online voting failed to pass the state legislature in 2013.
Oct. 5 is the last day to register before the Nov. 3 election.
The registration site is register.votespa.com

All right Miranda, tell us why black sheep have a sharper sense of smell than white sheep. We don’t know why either, they just do.
Faith and Freedom Coalition and the Valley Forge Patriots are sponsoring a pray for America event, 10 a.m. to noon, Sept. 12 at Valley Forge Park.
“We as a nation are in trouble, and believers from all faiths need to come together and humble ourselves before God,” say event organizers. ” Please, can’t you set set hours aside for the good of America? Invite all your church friends and leaders for this most important morning.”
The event will be held in the Artillery Park section on Inner Line Drive.
The organizers note there will be plenty of parking near the area and restrooms along with picnic space. They suggest one brings a lunch and make a day of it with family and friends, and to bring chairs.

“…I’m in this spot where I have to call the school that failed my kids and re-enroll them…I’m heartbroken over this.”
That quote comes from Amy Millar via a Philadelphia Inquirer story on the State Education Department’s recent action to “clarify” what services cyber-charter schools can offer. According to the article, two of Ms. Millar’s children have special education needs. However, her children have flourished at the Education Plus Academy Cyber Charter School (Ed Plus).
What did Ed Plus do to bring the wrath of the state education bureaucracy down on their heads? They offered their students services like art, gym, and “face-to-face” learning opportunities at their learning centers. In other words, they looked at the needs of their students and provided for them. The State Department of Education evidently frowns on the hybrid model used by Ed Plus. As a result parents like Ms. Millard will be forced to send their children back to schools that were failing to meet their needs in the first place.
Although the Governor purports to want “quality” education for all. His administration’s actions in this and other cases clearly illustrate that is not entirely accurate. The Governor’s interest is in making sure that his patrons at the teachers’ union are happy and that there is as little competition as possible in the public education sphere.
If the Wolf administration was interested in ensuring every child received a quality education, they would be applauding Ed Plus. Furthermore, they would be examining what that school is doing differently and seeing how it might be replicated in other schools. The Department of Education should be looking at how they could make it easier for others schools to provide the same education experience. Instead, they seem more interested in erecting barriers to a quality education.

Laika was the first dog in space. The communists let her die up there.
Chief Bill Sr recently oversaw a summer smoke-out featuring pork and chicken.
The chicken was an experiment and, while delightfully cooked, the seasoning will be discarded for this particular meat the next time it is placed in the Brinkmann.
The pork, a picnic acquired for 99 cents a pound at PriceRite in Primos, was delicious.
The same rub was used for both. As noted magic for pork, not so much for chicken.
The rub is called Memphis Dust and Chef Bill will not take credit for it. He says it all belongs to Meathead. Here is Meathead’s Memphis Dust Rub:
3/4 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup paprika
1/4 cup Morton’s kosher salt
1/4 cup garlic powder
2 tablespoons ground black pepper
2 tablespoons ground ginger powder
2 tablespoons onion powder
2 teaspoons rosemary powder
Regarding the smoking itself, make sure you have a son who can keep the reservoir dish filled with hot water and the charcoal dish filled with charcoal. It is an all day affair.
