Have a GREAT DAY! and good luck with your liberal relatives!
See you tomorrow.
First: You have to wonder, if this an ad for Dubai, Jetpaks, or Airbus A380.
Second: I’m not sure I’d want to be those two guys, exciting as it looks.
Whatever, it’s some really great footage, isn’t it?
Don’t worry about that comet that looks like a skull coming at us! That’s not an omen, are you kidding? Imagine the odds?
Excuse me while I go get my Almond Joy bar, some popcorn, and watch Sleepy Hollow reruns. (I know I’m lame.)
NOBODY ADMITS DEFEAT
I have Windows 8.1, and drivers are crashing…I’m lucky I can even connect to the internet.
Now, I have NO idea how long this will be in the ‘computer’ shop, but I am hoping that if I take it in today, it will be fixed by next week.
You know me, I will always blame most everything on a vast left/right-wing conspiracy if I can.
If Hillary can do it, so can I. She did this.
I just finished Mark Levine’s book and Ben Carson’s book, and had a lot to say about both, but it will have to wait.
In the meantime, stand by all you excellent nobodies! I’ll be back!
I usually don’t have much time to just sit around and watch a movie more than once, but yesterday I watched the documentary “What the Bleep Do We Know?” again. Basically it’s about quantum physics and how our very thoughts can affect events and what happens to us. It’s worth a view. Really.
There was one section in the movie where a man said they did an experiment in D.C., a sort of psychic experiment, where they gathered a lot of people who came to the city, and just meditated on stopping the crime rate. It went down that year, 25 percent he said. Of course…that experiment was debunked on Youtube, and I think, it depends—on many things, whether you are a skeptic or not. CAN our thoughts tap into some kind of molecular universal force that will manifest outcomes? After all, Thomas Edison, who was no fool, tried to tap into it.
Some call it the “god” effect, and I must say, I’ve had some really strange thing happen in my life time, that could not have been mere coincidences. Millions of people have this happen to them everyday, but they don’t think about it much.
For instance, when I was 19, I had just started playing the drums, and I remember passing a hotel, one of the maybe 100 hotels in the city and I thought to myself, “Wow…if ONLY I could be good enough to get in a band and play there. Get out of dodge woman… you dream, I said to myself.” And then I forgot that thought completely.
Would you be surprised if I told you that just by random chance, within a month I had gotten a job with my first band, who just HAPPENED to get booked in their next job there by chance? Did I WISH that so much that somewhere in the quantum physics of the universe it just happened?
Coincidence? Or quantum physics at work? Or just that force we call God. What do YOU think?
To everyone who reads this blog: I just wanted to let you know I’m going to be out-of-town for a few days–It’s the last of summer here, and gas is the cheapest its been in a decade. I plan to get sunburned, float on a big raft down a cool river, and forget the world and all its problems.
I’ll be back to posting on Tuesday.
I hope everyone will have a great holiday (here in the States at least) –don’t labor too much, and drive carefully.
Until then, enjoy this lovely picture of the moon….see you on Tuesday!

This is such a delight…young Tanishq is a real joy to behold…..and the REASON he will do great things is because he has really smart parents.
What I liked about this little film, is that the professor brought up a great point: Genius gets put aside. There are so many programs for the ones who have trouble, but the really bright kids, get pushed aside by our school systems. They get bored. They drop out. A lot of them are not lucky enough to have such great parents.
Some big corporation already has eyes on this kid…
What a great story. Enjoy!
I had one of those really bad days,…..I left the house at ten am, and didn’t get home until well after midnight, due to my car breaking down, and me running around town trying to get it fixed before it kills me on the highway, and here I am thinking…
Should I write really meaningless stuff, that even I will be bored by because I’m so tired? After all, I have NO idea what damage Obama did to the country today, but if it’s like any other day…I need to give it my FULL attention, and since I’m wet, (from the rain) and tired…the answer I gave myself is:
You torture enough people.
Trust me, I do this because I really appreciate everyone who visits here daily.
In the words of the Terminator…”I’ll be back” ….shortly. After I get some sleep.
Tonight, or tomorrow.
She’s two. I can’t wait to see what she will be doing at four.
Mensa is probably already sending her postcards.

I thought this Nature Valley commercial sent a message that was so much more to think about— than an energy bar.
Video games ARE addicting. They have done studies on the effects of the brain. While they do improve some brain functions, too much is not a good thing.
Go by any park, and the baseball lots are empty…all the kids are inside playing video games.
I don’t know about you, but our parents told us to “go outside and play” and we were outside playing, building forts, making up games, exploring the woods..until the last rays of the sun. The LAST thing we wanted to do was to go inside…and be with boring mom and dad.
Back then, it was safer. Back then, kids learn independence. Solitude. The wonder of God, the universe, bugs, animals…the wonder of the world.
Still…listen to these kids. Sad.
These are the kids who will BEG for someone to wire their brains directly to the web.
And the developers are working on that right now.
Makes you glad you grew up when you did, doesn’t it?

Hey! We made it to the weekend! And that means…Nobody gets out of her gloomy self and posts uplifting and fun stuff…like this:
Diver puts a GoPro camera on a Hammerhead shark, and you get to see the ocean from the shark’s view. I’d say, he lives in a better neighborhood than me.
Beautiful. Those GoPro camera’s are amazing.

This little four-year-old girl’s first aerobatics flight was such a joy to watch. What a great laugh.
Lucky Dad…. Lucky little girl. And smart. Dad will have her flying that plane in no time.

Have a great Father’s Day all you great dads! Hopefully, somebody will mow the lawn for YOU!
