1) 20 years for 3 degrees? In LA there is a project to paint streets with a light-colored heat reducing seal coat. It is produced by a company called GuardTop. The cost is $40,000 per mile. Last year, due to climate change, Mayor Garcetti, said this is a 20-year project which will result in a reduction of 3 degrees Fahrenheit. That sure is an expensive 3 degrees. Two thoughts here. Rejoice the 3 degrees will mean, finally, a costly government project will be well worth all that money. Second thought is - invest GoodTop

1) Generation "Z" Teenagers are bored. With their Smart phones and unlimited Internet access they claim they have never been so bored. It seems, after a while, they've gone through everything there is to do on the device. Here is a idea for "The Bored" Try reading books. Get a library card and go checkout some books. There still might be a few available that some aggrieved group hasn't been able to ban for containing something, anything or everything that offends them. And kids you don't need to keep recharging a book.

They are Race, Religion, Color, Disability, National Origin, Sex (although now that's negotiable) and familial status. If a Trump supporter really wants the house don't just say you voted for Hillary. Be creative, tell her you voted for Stephan Colbert.

1) Here is the latest from Obama. Through his Non Profit Obama Foundation he wants to create a million young Baracks.

1) This has been fun. Joe Biden saying if he were still in high school he would take Donald Trump out behind the gym and beat him senseless. Donald Trump says he would give Biden a severe and well deserved thrashing.  Of course there will never be an actual match. If there were it could rival the 1975 Thrilla in Manilla between Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier. Ali won in a TKO in the 14th round. The Biden and Trump match could be called the Dud in D.C.  

2) The Post Office has issued a Mr. Rogers Stamp. Remember him changing into his cardigan on the show? The Cardigan Sweater Manufacturers of America awarded him their Person Of The Year Award three times. I always "wondered" about that Mr. McFeely. Turns out he was named after Mr. Rogers' grandpa, Fred McFeely.

Well four of them won't like it but that what's her name Republican will.

1) A sixteen year old English boy, Brandon Marshall, is the tallest teen in the world. He stands at 7ft 4in and is still growing. If he gets much taller, the NBA will be recruiting him. His team mates can just throw him the ball, while he stands by the basket, and drops it in. Of course it won't be long before the NBA issues "The Brandon Marshall Rule." You Can't Just Stand there and drop the ball in the basket. You have to shoot it.

# 1. Meet Flippy the Buger Flipping Robot. Flippy is now flipping burgers at Caliburger in Pasadena. Flippy, using cameras, thermal imagining and 3 D sensing, flips and removes the patties at the right moment. However, with all those skills Flippy still comes up a little short. It seems Flippy can't do the most crucial task, putting the patties on the grill. That requires a human co-worker. Flippy costs about $60,000 but without a minimum wage helper, Flippy Flops.

#1. Hunter College in New York is suing Lisa S. Palmer for basically being a "Squatter." She enrolled in 2016 but dropped out shortly after moving into a dorm. She has stayed in the dorm ever since refusing to move out. The college has served eviction notices and might even asked politely to move out but to no avail. Lisa says she will fight the lawsuit. She may be claiming a constitutional right to "squat." It appears that no one at this citadel of higher learning thought to throw her stuff out and change the locks.
