Fortunately, the famously exploding Edison gas main held tight for the occasion, but I still think the Prez was taking an awfully big chance by coming here, because ...
The Tastee Sub Shop is within yards of the locations of at least 2 recent gas main explosions. I even blogged about the last one which was on Jan 18th, 2010:
What is it about Edison and Gas Main Explosions? .
FYI - The Tastee Sub Shop is 1.6 miles from my home, but I was at work yesterday.

At the balloon festival, I was a contestant in a trivia game.
One of the questions I buzzed in on was, “Sing a Song That Has the Word Dream in It.” I thought I could get away with naming the title, but no…, I had to sing it.
I gave “Daydream Believer” as the song name, but, I realized later, the song I started muttering was “Eternal Flame.” No wonder I couldn’t figure out where the words "Daydream Believer" fit into it.
Somehow they let me have the point, but I would have been embarrassed had I won the game with sort of a not kosher answer. Even though "Eternal Flame" has the word "Dream" in it also.
But I would have been even more embarrassed had I lost to this group in what would have been a version of “Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader.”
Anyway I have been singing "California Dream'n" all week.
If you can think of any other song containing the word "Dream", feel free to post it to the comments section. I won't even make you sing.

The Sweatshop, Circa 2009 :
Well that was then. This is now. A portable air conditioner with a vent.
But there are no windows that open where I work ...
So yesterday, it was vented this way,
Today was vented this way:
Both days, venting into:
Which brought the temp in that room way up...
After which this sign was posted on the door to the room:
How was it it my room? Well, ... I seriously thought of putting on a sweater, but didn't want to be a show off.
