wishing you much love rick..
thanks for being my wonderful friend..

Seeker and Explorer.
Earth guy living a conventional lifestyle. Totally enthusiastic about life. Into pushing boundaries and exploring the fringes of our existence (OK, well when I have spare time).
Focused. Work really hard. Very serious about things I need to be serious about.
Sometimes like to question that status quo. Being a rebel is sometimes a good thing.
I try to be good person. Usually I am.
Sometimes I give off a lot of raw energy.
Goodness and light rule. And curiosity and honesty and generosity and openness and simplicity.
"In wildness is the preservation of the world." (Henry David Thoreau)
"Carpe Diem." (Some wise ancient philosopher who spoke Latin and had a white beard)
Wild imagination. If you want someone to create really cool alternate universes, I'm the guy. Imagination sometimes needs to be subdued with metaphorical tranquilizer darts.
I like wild places. I think swamps are a great metaphor for life. I'm into deep thoughts and whimsical trivia. I'm a really fast keyboarder.
I was a kid once.
Some of my friends say I am a lousy driver. Sometimes I forget to tie my shoes in the morning. Otherwise, I got my act together.
I think laughter is a good thing.
Ask me anything you want.

And now the weather-people are saying that the "polar vortex" is about to return. A storm system is coming in sometime Wednesday.
Does that mean winter is still here?

And I shoveled the driveway again. I lost track of the number of times I've shoveled the driveway this year. I think it's more than any other year in the last two decades.
Got to a hot greenhouse Sunday, and more pictures to come.
Meanwhile, 52 days 'til the official start of spring.

Dr. Ryan Stone, physician-astronaut, a/k/a Sandra Bullock, becomes detached from her spacecraft while out on a space walk. Remnants of a destroyed Russian satellite come hurling toward her and astronaut Matt Kowalski a/k/a George Clooney, which send them spinning out of control into the blackness of space.
Won't go into the plot but Dr. Stone a/k/a Bullock ends up making a survival odessey through space, first to a Russian shuttle and then to a Chinese space station.... read more

Ben Franklin was born yesterday, 307 years ago.Sat, January 18, 2014 - 2:04 AM permalink - 0 comments
IMO, Ben Franklin was one of history's greatest characters. He was an entrepreneur, statesman, ambassador, scientist, editor, writer, inventor, printer, philosopher, philanthropist, mentor, and more. Not to mention that he was an extreme party guy. Not to mention that he was one of the founders of the USA.
He was an optimist, and he was persistent.
Think about how the world would change if we had more Ben Franklins around today.

Re: Weather? (in Tribal Lounge) Yep,a lot of stuff was closed in Washington, DC. Schools, government agencies, etc.
Washington is really a Southern city, and they don't know how to handle snow.

Re: Weather? (in Tribal Lounge) Another burst of bitter cold expected here for the next few days.
The long range forecast says no temps above 55 for the next five weeks. Usually we have a few days in March and early April that hit the 60s.

Re: Short Snappy Trivia about anything - thread 7 (in ! Trivia Tribe !) On this night, 31 years ago (February 28, 1983), the final episode of MASH aired. It drew 121.6 million viewers, a world record of watchers. The record was broken, however, in 2010, by the Super Bowl.
