• Israel isn’t that competent. More likely that 98 pound weaklings overpowered pumped up USAFA grads with box cutters.

  • Best cartoon of the year.

    Breakup of U.S.-I special relationship would be good for every 99er in the globe.

  • Clever ad but how many who see the billboard will know what “cloud” means?

    OK. It’s been real, but must see reruns on inside of eyelids.

    Be well.

    I stopped searching on Brit royals when I found out they were into necrophilia. Though that makes sense, bc what alive person would have sex with them.

    Apple trees are high maintenance items. Wood is gnarled & doesn’t fit into wood stoves in reasonable way.

    Bsides, when dead apple trees were cut down, discovered I have a view.

    Almond crop is WORST for honey bees. Queens start laying in Jan-Feb, daylight, not temp related. Almonds in CA, 300 miles of monoculture without a flower or weed in evidence. Almond trees have no nectar, only pollen, or something like that. Gallons of GM corn syrup poured into hives.

    Imagine feeding human babies such a diet.

    EU betw a cold and a cold place.

    How predictable is this situation. From Nuland’s cookies and FU-EU.

    And Kerry’s 35 we-knows wrt Syria.

    Humans have managed the land for thousands of years. “Environment” means human participation in nature.

    There is the extreme, wh is Prince Phillip (might be more extremes, but I don’t know who they are).

    He is alleged to have said: I talk to my plants. So far so good. But then he goes on: and they talk back to me.

    Of course, what would one expect from hundreds of years of inbreeding.

    The local SUNY college seems to be a unique place, wh is what I was hoping to find.

    Started a conversation about ebola with a new-to-campus 30ish development functionary sitting next to me at dinner. Laid out two outre scenarios, both of which would evoke derision on FDL, and his response was: I never heard of those, but who could believe anything USG says, they kill so many people & lie so often.

    I hadn’t met the man before, took a chance, ready to back down if I perceived he thought I have 3 eyes, but instead met with receptive ears, & acceptance that I had delved into it more than he had.

    Speaking of cold, seem like EU, Uk, Russia reached a gas agreement.

    But it’s all Russia’s fault, bc it won’t give its gas to Uk for zero euros and full forgiveness of back IOUs. Bad Russia, wants to be paid for value provided. How godless communist & evil is that.

    Heating with firewood, they say, warms you 3X. Cutting it, stacking it & burning it. One year I figured that the # is more like 10X, if it is cut on your own property, which is more expensive than buying it. Go figger.

    My tree management “policy” has made a 180. Used to let everything grow, except dead apple trees. Property was an orchard 50 years ago.

    Now I have too many trees growing too close to each other, so the model is: cut it down.

    All the rage.

    Had a speaker come in from Cornell last year. He made a great presentation. Audience of 200ish.

    BC there is already a program here, though the big grant came after that program, there were enough faculty & students to ask good Qs. Another one of those rare lectures that were better+ than expected.

    In addition, from what I’d read online, I didn’t really understand it. He brought a printer & some samples of complicated articles it could produce. Nothing beats show & tell.

    Custom body parts, like hip & knee replacements, seem like one of the promising commercial applications.

    SUNY system is complicated. Many campuses. Nelson Rock put one in every county to get legie to pass it.

    Each college must manage up to SUNY central and manage down to myriad of campus constituencies.

    Difficult job. Don’t know current prez well. Partly went today to get some face time to get to know him better. Seems up to the task.

    As you say, Xing fingers.

    Last year (a vurry burrrrry winter) I used 3 cords for the kitchen only. But it was wood with less BTU content per weight. (The useless info one acquires in the process of living.)

    This year I have 3 cords of good wood, and owing to large while-you’re-at-it project owning to finding tree guys with big chipper & otherwise talented chain saw handlers, I have 3 cords of, mostly ash, aging for the following winter.

    One person informed me that after speaker departs, enthusiasm wains and bureaucratic BS overwhelms. We’ll see.

    Speaker presented earlier this year. Don’t know why I didn’t know about it, but whatever. He was invited back to engage new segment of community. Response, as I mentioned was enthusiastic. Academics typically feel overwhelmed, so if they are dunned to participate in fundraising they have rolled their eyes and stonewalled.

    But ask them what they would do with $1 million (the largest single donations school has received, one for 3-D printing program, the other for some engineering program), their eyes light up. They have all kinds of good programs in mind, and when pressed, were able to think about ways to make it happen, use funds to attract donors with common interest.
