5-4-3-2-1; Ready For Take-Off
With the 7 astronauts strapped into their seats and the hatch closed and locked, the space shuttle Discovery’s crew is ready for a 10:39 a.m. lift-off. The astronauts are scheduled to perform three space walks while at the International Space Station. These walks will include the repair of equipment on the ISS. NASA estimates the risk of catastrophic failure is about 1 in 100.
Jamboree or BBQ?
A boy scout jamboree scheduled at Fort AP Hill – one hour south of Washington DC – turned deadly when a deadly electrical accident killed four adult Scout leaders that were setting up camp for opening day. The troop leaders that were killed were visiting from an Alaska troop. It is believed that a tent pole struck a power line. "The Jamboree will go on," said spokeswoman Renee Fairrer.

Long Story Short
Carlos C. is still hospitalized with clots in his chest and legs. Doctors hope to release him by the end of the week. Daylen has made a full recovery since his hernia op and is now eating, screaming and givin’ the Boogie Down hell. Hector C. drops E. and R., puts P in his place and looks to a couple of drinks with S. by Friday – stay tuned. Did Freakin’ get freaky? Questions abound, but details are fervently requested. Krissy brought her Angel to the Village for a double date of sorts with Cocoa and friend. The night was a success, but what was with the GAY-torade order at the bar? Evelyn C. won the court battle with the city board to keep her two story deck. Congrats, now safety check that thing! J’Moo married? Inquiring minds want to know! BTW: Lounge tonight?
Keep passin’ the open windows…
