Questions and Answers

My Dad was a scientist, and this was one of his lessons in scientific method: Ask the question you want the answer to. He wanted me to apply this lesson to all questions, and to the next thing which is also a lawyering thing: Answer the question you have been asked. It is amazing how little most of...

To Eat or Not To Eat

What exotic foods would you be willing to try? Which ones would you absolutely not, not even a taste? What is the most exotic food you have eaten, or at least tasted?

"If you are faced with something that scares you and excites you, you should go ahead and do it!" For me, this is the China trip. Getting married was one, too: Commitment scares me. What has it been for you? What scares and excites you? And were you glad, in the end, that you did it, or didn't? Sign in to see full entry.

Where do you want to go?

Even now, I am thinking of other places to go, things to see... Australia is high on my list, and also Great Britain--Wales, particularly. What's on your To See list? If you are no longer making that list, what are the best places on your I've Seen list? Sign in to see full entry.

Phenom!

This weekend gave us, at least here in Colorado Springs, a gloriously clear view of the lunar eclipse from first shadow through totality to the brilliant, unshadowed moon again.

What they said, what I read

"Chicken Will-maker" an ad from Quicken Books... "These Top Cruise Lines Are Elegant & Randy For Seniors..." Elegant and Ready... Sometimes my brain just reads what it wants to read. How about you? What stuff have you mis-read that made you double-take? Sign in to see full entry.

Sounds like...

Do you ever listen to recorded ambient sounds? It's one of my favorite things, adding the sounds of nature to my surroundings, including to go to sleep by and wake up with. Here's a new sounds library from Yellowstone Park: https://www.nps.gov/yell/learn/photosmultimedia/soundlibrary.htm Do you have... Sign in to see full entry.
