Hi Michael-I have gotten on here a couple of times recently to see whats going on. I always enjoy your travel stories and your envior ideas. Pray all is well with you and yours. Have a wonderful week! God Bless!
Hi Mike! It has been a long time, but I feel compelled to actively join zoobird again! I remember when we met at the Portland Hostel, my husband and I were visiting Portland to see if we wanted to move there and I am very happy to say we made it here! Your site has grown so very much, it is incredible to see all the blogs and groups that are up!
Funny, out here near Boulder Colorado...they still call those hub caps
If yours are still missing, try the local chop shops or junk yards...it may be a stretch, but even the pawn stores just in case.
I do hope you get them back though...I would be happy to put them on my ride any day
Hey! I'm back in Chicago until school starts again. It was great meeting you! I haven't had time yet to explore the website too much- but look forward to doing so and keeping up with your travels/experiences. :0)
Well, I am finally an accessing member of Zoobird. After going through the motions to become a member about three weeks ago, I could not access my account. After going through the same motions during this past week, I can now access my account.
Answers (and maybe some questions)
I'm not familiar with Love craft. I know I've been asked this before, but even what it is escapes me at the moment. Instead of looking it up, I'll await your response. I've always found non-Euclidean geometry far more interesting. I suppose some of that is the result of having a grandfather who taught math at NYU. When he would visit, we would sit down after dinner and he would do what I guess are "math tricks"--drawing fractals, showing me a triangle with 90 degree-angles, drawing a triangle on a tennis ball with 270 degree-angles.
I think the ancient theory of atomic swerves is ridiculous, so yeah, I do believe in hard determinism. Al Mele at FSU just got a 4 million dollar grant to look into the problem of whether we free will. Surely you don't need me to point out a philosopher getting that sort of grant money is unheard of!
As for palindromes, what isn't interesting about them? I guess I've also noticed that these numbers follow me around. Most of my government issued ID has a palindrome. My birthday contains one (you notice that when you're a child and bubbling in your DOB on a standardized test), etc. I would say that when I do go to a store, I end up paying for a number that is a palindrome. Perhaps it's just the symmetry. Verbal palindromes are quite fun, too, but don't follow me around as much.
"The noticeably bitter taste of turnip greens has been linked by researchers to its calcium content. On an ounce-for-ounce basis, turnip greens contain about 4 times more calcium than a much less bitter-tasting cruciferous vegetables like cabbage."
Have you always wanted to make your own bread? Well, here's a little article about making rye bread with a bread machine. This bread machine came from a thrift store and only cost $11.99! The ingredients to make Russian Rye were so simple you won't believe how easy it was. Enjoy!
