I saw that photo a little while back, listener; both strange and spectacular. Nice.Alan
Yes, the article was dated February 6th. I often set up posts 2-4 weeks ahead,
Am struck once again by how beautiful we are! Astonishes me that some would trade that for filthy lucre. Makes NO sense to me. None at all.
*shrug* To some people money is more beautiful than God's creation. These are people in name only, since hey lack souls.
From a newsletter that somehow started showing up in my inbox:"You’re a completely different person at 14 than you are at 77. At least, that’s the conclusion of the longest personality study ever conducted."If you're willing to accept "completely" as mild hyperbole, that's my experience.
We used to hear that all the cells in our body are replenished every 7 to 10 years or so, but researchers have shown that neurons in the cerebral cortex are never replaced. There are no neurons added to your cerebral cortex after birth. So you're pretty different, but never completely. 🙂
That finding can't be too new, Listener. I just read the same info in Asimov on Chemistry in a chapter originally published in the early '60s.

Got two fundraising calls tonight. The first from the DCCC, really noisy - sounded like one of those boiler rooms where they have hundreds of people making calls for pay. That one was quick: Just said, "Sorry. No. Bye." and hung up. A little later I got one from a man with a very nice voice raising money for Sherrod Brown. I let him ramble on about Josh Mandel and all his corporate money and we all have to work together and THEN he asked me for $150. I just plain cracked up. I laughed a genuine belly laugh, and he said, "I guess that means No." I said, "Dude, I'm on Social Security. I'm 73 years old and I only donate through ActBlue, never by phone." I really, really wish they'd STOP CALLING ME!
Emails never stop unless you go to the bottom and click on Unsubscribe for EVERY unwanted entity that emails you. The same holds true with phone calls. Unless you say "Take me off your list" they won't; and for some you have to say it four times.
Oh, and I have laughed too. But more often I have gotten kind of angry. During the Recession, when Mah*Sweetie's home business was doing poorly and he hadn't yet gotten the job he has now, we were getting pretty worried about making ends meet. When I'd get a call begging for a donation, I would explain our predicament, framing it as an issue of the Recession. I'd say we're making only half way we were. I honestly thought they'd get it, say something compassionate, and maybe even vow to work harder. That NEVER happened. Instead they would just go to the next line on their script and ask for half as much. Were they all rich and clueless? I even deliberately said once that we were making less than a third of what we were and were concerned about putting food on the table. The person then asked if we could give $20 instead of $100 this time. !!! I have not for one moment missed our land line. Ha!

Me neither, Alan. And in fact, never again. My Escort died last summer, and I'm getting used to it. Barely. Haven't been without a car since my early 20s. Huge adjustment.
Have you replaced it with something that eats? Speaking of which, here's astory re local food pantries. [Click] I think I will set up a continuing donation to the food bank, rather than continue giving them intermittent donations. It isn't much, but they sure do make it go a long way--they say one dollar provides food for seven meals. Food insecurity and frank hunger are far from small problems around here, despite the huge agricultural production.--Alan
Wow, Listener, that's incredibly cool! Thanks.
