greeneyes has the gardening thread.

What frustrates me is that seed sellers don’t get specific enough about the taste of the fruit from the seeds they sell.

"A day ago, the northern hemisphere was bathed in sunlight for a slightly longer period of time than the day before."

Very few people have the ability to let the eye in their head see the world spinning 'round.

The primitive lizard portion of our brain thinks that the sun going down means the sun is going out. There's plenty of room in Earth orbit for more real estate, if someone knows how to make it real.

The energy is there already, and will be for quite a while. It is that realization that led early mathematicians to calculate how much energy the sun was putting out, and then to wonder where such prodigious amounts of energy could come from. Whatever could be its source?

That led them to realize that energy and matter are two forms of one thing. Matter is the solid state of energy.

Such concepts expand the mind, and we will need expanded minds to deal with the expanded Universe we are discovering.

Happy Future.

In the winter (now) the sun comes in the living room window without obstructions. By March, it will be bright but all “sunless” until about November, again.

There is a small “planter” about 12” wide around the patio fence, but bear in mind that my apartment is on the northeast corner of the building. It will be cool in the summer. And that’s about the best thing I can say about the exposure.

"In the 0bama-nation, that is an oxymoron."

Hmmm. Perhaps steady employment would be a more apt description. Regardless, I'm deeply grateful to have employment, period.

Of course, with the American electorate having just rogered-up for another four years of Obozo, anything can (and probably will, presuming it's horrible to contemplate) happen.

My mom said she’d talked to my brother after Christmas dinner your time. Fortunately, the weather is reasonably temperate in Norfolk, so he didn’t have to stay indoors all the time with the four nieces-and-nephews under 4, including a 3-week-old baby.

My brother likes children more in the soccer-playing age. He always coached sports when he was in the military, even though he doesn’t have children of his own. He started coaching with his friends’ younger siblings when he was still in high school.

"Have you figured out how to keep the rest of us from expanding?"

Many ways are known.

None of them are pleasant. That seems to be the problem.

This is one of the challenges we deal with on an individual basis. It's like having a widely variant genome, in the presence of a disease organism. Some may fall prey, but some will always survive. The various coping mechanisms we develop for dealing with our uncontrollable cravings will stand us in good stead when the temptations are even more irresistible.

It's going to be a long march. If you think Olduvai Gorge was in our distant past, you can't understand how far we have yet to go.

Fortunately, we'll have non-biological assiistance with our challenges. But that also means we'll have to work out whether we are controlling them, or they are controlling us.

I am working diligently on these problems, by thinking quite hard about them. Think, think, think, as Pooh would say.

Happy Boxing Day. It makes me think of the Boxer Rebellion, featuring Charlton Heston in the movie.

December 26 is the first day of After-Christmas Sales here, but it’s raining. Anoreth’s dog needs to go out, but doesn’t want to.

My big indulgence was French onion soup. I counted all my Points (a lot!), so today I feel fine. It’s not about deprivation, but about making smart, controlled, thoughtful choices for yourself, instead of emotional, thoughtless choices that you’ll wish you could undo.

See how this applies all through one’s life, not just to what one eats!

DP and Tom have gone to get their glasses repaired. They have clutziness issues!

I love french onion soup with fresh baked bread. Yummy! I haven’t had any for years.

Some places in the valley have snow this morning, though not here, even though we’re quite high and we’re at 37 degrees. It’s coming from the west, so I don’t imagine we will see too much of it.

Happy Boxing day to you 'Face, Tc,Ff.
Boxing day:
The Day after CHRISTmas when gift boxes were traditionally given to household employees and other service workers.
The Staff in the 'Big houses' used to be given the day off, if they were lucky.
Observed as a Bank holiday in most Commonwealth countries.

Today is Rain,this has taken up residence and will be with us until Sunday.

Anoreth's Dog sounds as if it's got the right response for a wet day,good doggie!

I just read that in a Wilkie Collins short story. Before that, I didn't know why it was "Boxing Day."

The rain might clear off this afternoon. If it doesn't, we'll put off after-Christmas shopping until tomorrow.

Low clouds and ugly stuff out there, this morning, but at least there is light.

Maybe some rain will hit us a little later. Since we are in the SE corner of the valley, a lot of “weather” misses us by going NE. We are hotter in the summer than Vegas and colder in the winter.

LOL! Bryan emailed me that link and three others. Thank you for being so thoughtful, Joe, my dear friend.

You can see that the Mare’s Leg doesn’t kick much.

It’s snowing heavily here today, we may get up to 13”, and we can’t see across the cornfield, so I can’t shoot my new pistol (Firearm, Tax-Chick! Firearm!).

We’re housebound for the duration, and then Bryan has to plow the driveway.

DC and I have been theorising something similar.
It would be linear amplified magnetically contained plasma discharge, but the wattage is uncertain.

linear amplified magnetically contained plasma discharge

Magnetically contained plasma discharge: Large tubular magnetic source with pulsed switched fields and a copper plated shaped charge.Or a gas supply injected through a high voltage arc passed between two electrodes in an Oxygen free environment.
Linear amplified: Now this i need to hear about.Are we amplifying the plasma discharge or the magnetic field?

Think of it as a bastard offspring of an unfortunate linear induction motor mated to a drunken stepped transformer that molested a railgun on psychotropic medications.

At least that is the starting point theory.
