    "The only safe rule is to dispute only with those of your acquaintance of whom you know that they possess sufficient intelligence and self-respect not to advance absurdities; to appeal to reason and not to authority, and to listen to reason and yield to it; and, finally, to be willing to accept reason even from an opponent, and to be just enough to bear being proved to be in the wrong."

    ~ Arthur Schopenhauer, The Art of Being Right: 38 Ways to Win an Argument (1831), Stratagem XXXVIII.

    Given the previous image and the following image to the image that S.G. showed, that "hole" appears to be very shallow, about a millimeter in thickness.
    If you hold up your hand and look at your pinky, imagine a line going through about 1 and 1/2 millimeter through the tip. It would create a small bowl type shape. I think it's quite likely that is what is in the image.

    On another note...my ranting random comment for the day: I think my company killed a few forests today...possibly every day. The use of the copier is just...wow. I honestly wonder why everyone is printing so often, and so much? Anyway! (To seagypsy, oh I hope everything turns out ok. You're in my thoughts.)

    We try in our business to do as much as we can via computer and paperless, but many entities still require a hard copy.

    The other day I heard a news program say that highlining was becoming the fastest growing extreme sport in the US. Well highlining is just slacklining in the high places. A slackline is usually a very strong ribbon like material that will be described in the first video. In the first video the guy is not using any safety line and it's a real nail bitter, because the drop is 3500 feet.

    In the second video the line looks more like a rope than a ribbon, but it is stretched over a beautiful waterfall and the guy does use a safety line, and it's a very good thing he did.

    Extreme High-Lining - YouTube

    High Lining over Yosemite Falls | Gadling.com

    In case you hadn't heard by now, Yosemite National Park has seen an unusually high number of fatalities this summer. With the recent fall of a 23-year-old climber from Yosemite's Half Dome, the 17 fatalities for the summer season are double the park's annual average.

    While five of the deaths were attributed to natural causes, the remaining 12 were considered to be preventable accidents. Included amongst these were the woman who fell while descending half dome, three hikers who were swept over a waterfall, and a California teenager who died when he slipped and fell on the park's popular Mist Trail.

    So when I see videos such as this one, courtesy of our friends over at the Wend blog, it gets me thinking about how far we are willing to push the limits of safety for an adrenaline rush and a remarkable view.

    Granted, there is something to be said for training and professionalism, but with all of the death that seems to be surrounding the park as of late, I would probably think twice before attempting a stunt like this.

    I didn't notice, but even with a safety line, pissing myself would be the last of my worries in that situation.

    Even though the fall might not have been as high as in that first video, that waterfall is a major distraction.

    I've been watching the Inside Nature's Giants series on Youtube and man, what an interesting series it is! I'm having trouble choosing which one I'm going to watch next each time. What next? Hippo, Elephant, Giraffe, Crocodile, Baboon, what to choose!

    I am reflecting on the day and thinking that the effort required to track down and finally procure a Lithium Ion Battery Powered chainsaw was worth it. The machine is everything I expected from the research that I had done. The fast charger had the battery ready for operation within the 60 minutes stated.

    Today, I field tested mine by running it for 25 minutes to limb and buck up a very heavily cone-laden spruce top that had been snapped off by high winds several weeks ago. I am suitably impressed. My two older gas chain saws will be going in the newspaper shortly.





    The rest of the wood, I had stacked around the base of the spruce tree, not in view of the camera.

    When I was little my dad used to let me help him split logs. I had my own little hatchet and he would give me small "logs" to split and he would split the big ones with an ax.

    If you have a wood splitter you can do a lot of fire wood in a day. It helps a lot when your old and you depend on enough fire wood to get you through the cold season. And your neighbors really like it when you loan them the wood splitter when your not using it. But you still need to cut the logs into rounds so it's still a bit of work and there's nothing easy about moving all that wood around. If you want the thrill of using an ax just save a couple of choice rounds for that.

    I just remembered something I heard from Ideas on CBC radio a while ago... During the renaissance, the deep blue was one of the most - if not the most - revered colour to paint with. This was because the pigment was made of Lapus Lazuli, which was a very expensive import at the time. Because of this it was most often used in paintings that were considered especially important, particularly religious paintings. As a result the deep shade of blue became commonly associated with the Virgin Mary, as the colour was frequently used for her garments.

    Another interesting one: Spain had a monoply on the dye used in deep red pigments. They got the dye from South American tribes after the discovery of the new world. The source of the dye was a closely guarded Spanish secret. As a result, this pigment was also very expensive. Painters often learnt how to properly mix this particular pigment themselves because it was very common for paint shops to cut pre-mixed pigments of this dye with inferior dyes such as clay dust.

    I didn't think Hawaii had a cold season? You must be talking about somewhere else. But I did remember you saying something about Humboldt?

    I am just returned from a brisk autumn ride on my endurance mare, Caramel. We knocked off 7 km in 22 minutes and that including our warm up and cool down time. We are a couple of wild things, my mare and I, enjoying this cool interlude prior to the onset of the cold season.

    This picture of Caramel was taken back at the end of May but you can appreciate that she looks like 'a sports model'.

    That's what keeps her structurally sound and her length of stride is phenomenal for a horse of just over 15HH (60 inches at the top of her shoulder) because of her angulation. All of her energy goes forward and is not wasted in up and down motion or winging and paddling. We have one upgrade that we like to race up. Already at a canter as we approach it, I literally grab the saddle horn before I ask her to kick in the afterburners or else I would be left sitting on a piece of the sky as she smoked out from underneath me. We hit 55 kph for about 100 yards and then we settle back to a sedate 20 kph. I have a GPS to determine these facts.

    Played in a charity golf tournament today. We have played in this one for many years, win or lose wasn't the issue, having fun and helping a good cause has. In 15 years, this tournament for this small area (we live 5 1/2 hours away, so this is not a local tournament) has raised a million dollars for machines needed for local hospitals, for Hospice, and for other entities.

    This year it was geared to grief counseling for children, at no cost....for as long as they should need.

    I am PROUD that golf often raises hundreds of thousands of dollars for charity in communities. It brings business, people, charities together.

    Tuesday I had to go to the ER because something with more than two legs and much smaller than myself, likely not a mammal, decided to make lunch out of my finger. Luckily it didn't like the taste much so didn't take a second taste. But it did end up getting infected and so Tuesday I was in the ER with a right hand index finger looking like a mangled sausage. After an hour of IV antibiotics and 4 days of multiple antibiotics in pill and ointment form, I was able to drain it yesterday quite a bit and today pulled a plug of goo out of the middle. I now have a gaping hole in my index finger just passed the first knuckle. It's about 5mm deep and 5mm in diameter. It's totally awesome. There is a secondary hole to the side of it not quite ready to drain but that's a hole of my own making when I tried to drain it by force the day I went to the ER. This will be one very cool scar. I have two brown recluse scars, one between my shoulder blades and a smaller one behind my right ear. Who needs cool tattoos when you have awesome scars.

    Something cool discovered this morning. I think I have a new bite on my ankle. And since I am already full of antibiotics it shouldn't get infected. But It will be neat to see what the toxin will do without the cover of infection to hide it's activities.

    I have cheese but will stock up on yogurt, thanks for bringing that to mind. I hadn't even considered it.

    Have you been able to ID the bug doing the biting on you yet? Has any other house hold resident been bitten? What room is the most likely place where you are being ambushed? Are you even sure it's a bite and not something else? Most bugs that want a meal off your blood would not choose a finger, maybe an ankle, but even that is kind of iffy. I sure wouldn't wish a bed bug on anybody, but I've been told they like to follow the veins when they bite and that makes it pretty easy to ID them.

    These are most likely spider bites. I am in the garage most of the time. Neverfly constructed a makeshift office area for us out there and I am there anytime that I have free studying, working, or playing games. I don't believe in killing spiders because they look cool and they eat the bugs that are more likely to bite me intentionally, like mosquitoes. And the other annoying ones like flies, roaches, or gnats. Not that any of these are a problem but then we don't kill spiders. I likely endangered the spider without realizing it and it bit in self defense as most spiders would.

    It's surely a tiny little spider or else I would have felt the bite when it bit. And if it were dangerous, I'd likely be dead already.

    I am allergic to most insect bites or stings, not deathly allergic, but I swell and itch far worse than anyone I know, so I consider spiders an allie.

    Maybe but most types of spiders don't have fangs long enough to pierce human skin. But then when I was in Texas, I noticed that most of the bugs there had nasty bites and stings. If it was me I'd get a large bug fogger set it off in the middle of the garage and then come back in about 4 hours and let it air out a bit. If a few spiders die, so what, they were in the wrong place at the wrong time, and new spiders will take their place in short order.

    I find throwing my offending club as far as possible helps alleviate the grief a bit. Then I need embarrassment counseling.

    LOL bites suck but I like being part of the food chain. Helps me deal with the guilt when I accidentally step on one of them. Not only that, if I never got bit, I'd have to restrict my viewing of pustulating sores to what I can find on youtube. I like live action.

    In regards to golf, I think Adam Sandlar is my favorite golfer ever.

    The following short video showed up on a thread that I am subscribed to and I found it interesting enough that I thought I might share it. You know how a lot of folks consider young people today to be quite lazy? Well, here is a response from several young people...

    And now a typical Belgian dish:

    "The only safe rule is to dispute only with those of your acquaintance of whom you know that they possess sufficient intelligence and self-respect not to advance absurdities; to appeal to reason and not to authority, and to listen to reason and yield to it; and, finally, to be willing to accept reason even from an opponent, and to be just enough to bear being proved to be in the wrong."

    ~ Arthur Schopenhauer, The Art of Being Right: 38 Ways to Win an Argument (1831), Stratagem XXXVIII.

    I'll settle for one piece of this as the main course and maybe one more for dessert. You could maybe drizzle a sweet or chocolate sauce over the dessert slice...



    Belgian chocolate, sweets and dessert are much lauded by those who enjoy such treats.

    Belgian chocolate is quite famous, despite the 'big' names such as Côte d'Or, Milka and Toblerone.
    An example of supreme quality is Guylian:

    Anytime I find mayonnaise on anything I can't eat it. There is nothing about it that's appealing to me.

    And what is the difference between crisps and fries?
    The Oxford Dictionary was not so clear about it.

    Nice, that means I never have to share my Belgian fries with you!

    Steak fries (what I usually get when I order fish & chips) and only eat with ketchup.

    Three, as a matter of fact... They are rather tiny and usually served as an appetizer or side dish.

    I just caught a bit about this song on CBC News. A Canadian student combines science, a Capella, an excellent choice of t-shirts and an Einstein hand puppet.

    That are two words and do not fit into the eight asterisks.

    Congratulations on your engagement, wegs. Your recent lack of posting had me speculating that your 'experiment' was going well, lol...

    In the past, long engagements were common and there is something to be said for the custom. Co-habiting is the fastest way to get to know another person, in my opinion. Hubby and I lived together for eight years before I 'suggested' that he might want to ask me to marry him. That has already been over seven years ago now...

    How time flies when you are in good company!

Hubby and I lived together for eight years before I 'suggested' that he might want to ask me to marry him. That has already been over seven years ago now...

    How time flies when you are in good company!
