Weird stuff seems to go with major comets. When a comet appeared in A.D. 60, the people of Rome assumed it meant the impending death of their still new emperor, Nero. He responded by exiling a potential rival. When another comet turned up just 4 years later, ancient historians say he ordered the execution of dozens of nobles. It is said that Moctezuma II saw a comet in 1517 that foreshadowed the downfall of Aztec empire. In 1910, a wave of hysteria swept over the United States amid reports that Earth was about to pass through Halley's tail.

QUITE SO.

And thanks for your kind words.

You have long earned a lot of my respect and a fond spot in my heart regardless of our different perspectives.

No doubt.

Certainly an impressive brood, for sure.

WHOA! Thanks, but...um...well...
Um...I try not to get emotionally involved in whatever thread I’m on, and I really do try hard to present my view with logic, but there are many times when I have failed miserably!

Still, being who I am, and having endured what I have over my life, I really try to present my argument(s) with a certain removed degree. Sometimes, I fail. Sometimes, I almost make it. Other times, I treat myself to chocolate!

Thanks again for accepting me!

Perhaps you’ll wake up and remember that I’m the bloke with all the emotional colors and fonts . . . LOL.

Dispassionate is not in my dictionary very often.

Wellll that’s not quite true . . . but sorta.

On the Undead Thread, differences held elsewhere are ignored, and current disagreements are carefully kept under control. We all need a supportive environment somewhere!

Hoping you have an excellent June!

"I have had to carry a vial of Nitroglycerin with me for at least 40 years."

Is that like the trick of putting books on your head to practice correct posture? I can see that it would tend to make a person move with carefulness, if not grace.

Guess you're going to wake up somewhere else, because it's Moving Day.

What a day. Gray and drippy when we got to the Seattle Center, and not many folks there. Later, with the event underway, still not many folks and it had turned to full drizzle. An hour or so later the rain had stopped, it hard stared drying, a little bit of blue sky could be spotted to the SW. An hour after that -- full sun, blue sky, and crowds.

I try not to remember things that hurt my eyes!
It’s OK. It will come to me some day...if my brain worked like it should, I may have the ability to post in lots of colors and fonts, too!
Some days, it’s all I can do to find the right button to push to see what time it is. *sigh*
It’ll come back to me, I’m sure. I hope. ;o])

Funny you should mention that~~
I carried books on my head for years, and I’m sure I could handle one or two these days, without dropping them.

Anoreth will have him reprogrammed by the time the cruise is over ;-).

She's going to have the whole SHIP reprogrammed. If she goes career, she could do the whole Guard.
