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.
I'd love to hear what you learn from WJ. I've been culturing kombucha for give or take 20 years. I got me a system. In the cold months, the fermentation process takes a little longer but, generally, I have a fresh gallon batch ready every couple weeks - the perfect amount for me to have a cup of kombucha daily.
What is McRorie? I'm new to town. I've spent over an hour on the web trying to find info on the home van and how to volunteer. Now I've found Arupa's page but I'm still not finding out how to volunteer nor do I see the link for the newsletter. Hmmmm Any suggestions???
Hi Mike! Thank you for all your comments! The painting with the hand and the fish has the Blue Ridge Mountains in the background and a snake crawling through the mountains and up my arm. I hope you have a beautiful holiday weekend!
Right now, I don't have a garden, but I live in an apartment building for seniors (I can't believe I'm old enough. Where did the time go?) and the management has promised to dig up a sunny spot for us to have an organic garden. There are quite a few residents here who like to dig in the dirt and grow our own veggies. So, I can't wait. It will be nice not to have to travel to the garden. But I do miss the nice people at McRorie. If you know anyone who wants garden signs, let me know.
I gave up my plot at McCrorie because I couldn't seem to get over there and it was so hot, I always seemed to be out of town and I thought someone else could benefit more. In case you don't remember me, I'm the lady who made the signs. How's it going over there?
Thank you, Mike. I live in AZ. I teach middle school and we are working on a school yard garden. We are hoping to donate our produce to the community food bank. I am new to gardening, and especially new to organic gardening, so I am really trying to educate myself so I can pass that along to my students. Thanks for the welcome! :)
Happy Birthday Mike
