Love the new system yehhh !!!!
Ohhh, stop it! Your photo is making me homesick for the things about Tennessee that I miss the most. While I left many wonderful people behind all those years ago, it is still the memory of the damp, mossy, misty forests of Tennessee that wrenches my heart with longing. Colorado is breathtakingly beautiful, but it isn't the Smokies.
Thank you for all the thought and work that you put into your posts. I am in awe of your abilities! I now look to you as one of my staple sources of information. I also admire your cool head; sometimes I let people get under my skin a little. Keep up the great work!
what a beautiful avatar!
Thanks for your kind words!My avatar is a red ruffed lemur (Varecia variagata rubra), an animal I am very fond of and spent some time working with in the 80's. They are found in a small area of east central Madagascar and were almost extinct but brought back from the brink in captivity by researchers at various institutions. They are goofy and loud, and adorable as babies.
You are missed! I hope that you will be back soon. The threads are more interesting and informative when you contribute. And with you gone, harp throws all the hard questions MY way; it's fun to challenged but I don't always have time for it.
I hope that you are well.
Watch the video I've linked below. Then think and re-read some of the comments people like you and I are arguing with. The right wing propaganda has been more effective than they could have ever imagined.
The revolution will be televised
Thought you'd enjoy this. Putting this on the main post apparatus would only bring out the worst of the right wing knuckle draggers.
Dear Mountainlaurel -
It's is, right now, May 26, 2011, around 12:30 a.m. A perfectly ideal vacation in the north Georgia mountains, sans screaming children, TV, and 'internets,' was crushed by a family tragedy. We rushed back to Florida arriving a few hours ago. We have more stuff to deal with and as you can tell I'm way behind the curve.
Thank you so much for the signal flare. Back at the post, ready to do what I can, as best I can, for the cause. Still, the memory of deep forests, slow moons, and a structurally idyllic time-space dynamic, is haunting. Had forgotten the subtle charm of screaming silence.
The last time I checked in Francis had morphed into Sea Monkey. Are they both gone? Can you give me a brief cheat sheet of what's happened in two weeks? Without going, you know, over 10 thousand words?
Thanx; hope all is well is with you.
For your enjoyment,
You need to see this.
I command you to see this clip.
It’s Dylan Ratigan raving. His rant is neither left or right. He may have lost his cool, but he’s EXACTLY RIGHT. This is could just as easily be me arguing with friends and co-workers. Maybe if enough people see this and think a little bit, we might be able to avoid the fascism looming on the horizon.
I'm trying to spread this around. Hope you don't mind.
it was the authors take on the role dominace plays in bird life.
the theory had always been that birds defended their mates but this work puts forward the idea that they defend territory!(this is now pretty much accepted as fact today!)
actualy overall it attempts to explain WHY there is a PECKING ORDER and how it affects all living things!how, if you will, all living things strive to dominate!
he also pined "african genesis" which i found to be mind blowing!
it has been somewhat discredited since it was pub.in the late 1950's but still an interesting take on human behavior and whince it came!
