Looks like we have a couple new candidates for the school of driving Inc.
Cobra has a sense of humor, naming these particular exhaust pipes, the “Neighbor Haters”.
I took Bob out and started warming him up for a couple hours of riding today, wish the pipes weren’t so embarrassingly quiet. 😉
Nothing more serene than the sound of spring tree frogs.
COVID has broken a lot of things, not the least to mention is our view of the world.
This morning I made a comment to Braeden, that I was performing my morning mental exercise, e.g. trying to find matching sock colors in the “sock bin”.. it’s not an easy thing to do.
His response: “Why do you have to wear socks, people can’t see your feet on video chat.”
I wonder how far you could take that line of reasoning, or how far some people do take it… 🤨
Lying on a hammoc, listening to the pre-spring peepers..
What a lovely night.

Just finished up a thought provoking and highly-entertaining treatment of concepts and ideas swirling around related to life, the universe and everything.
Unlike some reviewers of the book, I specifically appreciate that the author tries to synthesize the scientific world view with the religious world view.
There are too many in life that think the world is so black and white, on both sides, thus being completely unwilling to give credence to what another might say or think across the divide.
The dichotomy reminds me of a couple maxims summarized by Covey and Bragg: 1) first seek to understand, then to be understood, and 2) science and religion are opposed as the thumb and forefinger – between the two you can grasp anything.
I came to a similar simulation theory ages ago (without much science knowledge to back it up, just through general observation and cognitive experiences), I’m glad to see we have some great thinkers spending significant clock-cycles on it.
Somewhere in our future is “The Theory of Everything”. Keep seeking!
This morning I was reminded of a memory from facebook. I tried to laugh, but it hurt too much, and then I threw my back out in the violent aftermath of an unexpected sneeze. I hope I didn’t wake any of the cats. Maybe I am allergic to cats; I hope not though, I like living at home.
I wonder what sebastian is having for dinner tonight.
History is definitely tainted by the lense through which you look.
Here is my contribution, a picture of the super wolf blood moon eclipse.
I laid out on the ground for 15 minutes, in shorts, to get you all this shot. It was approximately 29 degrees outside.
