Phoenix, AZ Phoenix is by far the hottest major city in North America; the average high temperature during baseball's regular season is 99.1 °F , and game-time temperatures well above 100 °F are very common during the day. Thus it was easy to justify an air-conditioned stadium with a retractable, 255’ high domed roof that opens and closes in four and a half minutes to its own music composed to the exact time needed to move it. The Chase Park stadium seats 48,633. Most of those seats are normal stadium seats but there are also a number of...

Like I stated on a Facebook posting, the end of an era has come. On our next to last day at the rig we had the carpets cleaned.

Assuming he was finished and needed to be paid Rick went out and they walked back to the rig. 30 minutes goes by and Rick hasn't returned so I leave our neighbors and...
