I've gone to my farm in Kentucky for the weekend. It's a great place to relax, do a little hard physical labor, and forget about the rest of the world. If you don't have such a place, I highly suggest you get one.

In the meantime, incase we missed one of these last year, here's a little review.

See you on Monday.

Re: #4, Watson & Crick's x-ray diffraction image of the double helix was a lot more compelling than Enzo Fabrizio's electron microscopy photo.

When I catch up with Tommy Two, my scoundrel clone created by Double Down Labs located 2 blocks off 2nd Avenue, I am gonna kick his butt for slipping into the house when I was in Kalamazoo on business and making jungle love to my wife. He blinded her with science & though I've never exposed that scalawag; the Misses keeps raving about that one "Enchanted Evening". I have seen him cruising by late at night in an old AMC Gremlin dressed like a Gaucho from a Brazilian Steakhouse flashing my toothy grin. Criminey!!!!

RY- on self-buttering corn, my husband's family holds the corn on the stick of butter and rolls it until buttered.  (I still use a knife.)

One year in five we got a good enough summer to ripen corn on the cob. An excellent vehicle for consuming Welsh butter. A French farmer who we were renting holiday accommodation from was amused when we asked if we could buy some of his corn on the cob. "You want to eat it?" he asked incredulously, "I grow it to feed my cattle!" We invited him to join us for dinner featuring corn on the cob with butter made from his own cows, it was delicious, the farmer was amazed. (HaHa) I make garlic butter, melt it, add salt& pepper  and apply it copiously with a paintbrush. Lots and lots so it soaks into the cob and you can slurp on it for ages. Does this count as an invention? I love those silky whiskers that grow on the end of corn cobs.

Carol~ and a cure for the common cold - if you take medication you'll be better in a fortnight. Nature takes two weeks. I was a yoga teacher back in the days - handy for cleaning the inside rear window of my little hatchback. Then when you think you did a good job, there's this smear in your rear view mirror. I know what you are talking about! Maddening!

A neighbor of ours, who had an official putting green in his backyard, moved south and at the sale afterwards his sixty-four blade (they went in two directions) made-in-Scotland mower went for about twenty bucks. It must have cost a bundle and was a beautiful thing to look at which, I suspect, is about all its new owner has ever done. Retrospective…

Some of the new farm equipment is amazing. Giant machines that can harvest,compact, and wrap hay,soilage,fodder, into giant rolls,and wrap them in plastic. No more throwing bales into the maw. Pity,really. At least with the oldstyle bales, the cows got a square meal...

Speaking of square meals, Floyd just appeared at my back door, complaining of the absence of food in the Village. I told him about my watercress soup and he was not impressed. Had to go to the Convenience Store and get a can of dog food.

As Floyd turned his nose up at my soup, a bowl of watercress soup with a swirl of creme fraiche per portion will be served in the club car. I recntly discovered that my new locality has watercress farms, yay! peppery vitamin laden greenery, delicious.

I think "one of the Greats." most amazing significant discoveries, where a talented family of six which included an extra-ordinary married couple, who were mute/deaf parents that raised a foresighted boy who grew up with future aspirations in solving problems in nature; He invented artificial blood that micmics blood hemoglobin------>this is sooo cool..important to help saving human life.....fabulous.....he must of put alot of thought into making this invention.and had encouraging parents.....Thinking of politics today...it makes any sequestered United States Federal budget a contrite statistical math calculation compared to the artifical duplication of blood hemoglobin. Available blood products can save lives! Yet the Federal government, our lawmakers, have so much greed that there are willing to the selling of the government assets:  hospital care, education, water/energy industry assets, liquor sales assets, land assets..etc.,,, foolishly to the lowest bidders  and can be any nation ...too if the price just "in hopes," hopes to funnel more liquid assests to toss in the making of one "big" mud pie...is ridiculous..Raising taxes on the extra-girth of prosperity releases a strength of being able to  keep building and helping to prosper for all people..the wealthy not paying a fair share of taxes.....tries to weigh us down to continue under achievement...in life....I am fading into sleepiness..but I am trying to express a concern...about the worries I have that the government is prompting more hunger, higher prices..INflation and it is harder for  the average citizen to make ends meet.....  in Washington DC we need to balance money solving equations and avoid interior repentance..those that are used to living in poverty will continue to so ..if the groups in office understand the government is about all the people. who are telling  their representative that this and that and the consortium have agreed on many important decisions changes, etc..so now lets implement..what the majority of the consortium.has a agreed on.....please do not wait...we need help..in the smarts arena... help Science and Peace move forward.I am a little tired when writing this...so reviewin the morning..... Have a nice day...
