I am here to bring back the art of listening. If you have anything you need to get off your chest, you have a sympathetic ear. I am not going to give you my opinion, nor chastise you in any fashion, and I would ask that those posting adhere to this courtesy.

Let the listening begin!

@Chumly,
I feel that the most of the long term members here are cruel.

I can understand that, for sure.

The crickets need a voice too, think of all the environmental degradation!

@Chumly,
I hear crickets, too.

The Potato's Dance
Author: Vachel Lindsay

"Down cellar," said the cricket,
"I saw a ball last night
In honor of a lady
Whose wings were pearly-white.
The breath of bitter weather
Had smashed the cellar pane:
We entertained a drift of leaves
And then of snow and rain.
But we were dressed for winter,
And loved to hear it blow
In honor of the lady
Who makes potatoes grow--
Our guest, the Irish lady,
The tiny Irish lady,
The fairy Irish lady
That makes potatoes grow.

"Potatoes were the waiters,
Potatoes were the band,
Potatoes were the dancers
Kicking up the sand:
Their legs were old burnt matches,
Their arms were just the same,
They jigged and whirled and scrambled
In honor of the dame:
The noble Irish lady
Who makes potatoes dance,
The witty Irish lady,
The saucy Irish lady,
The laughing Irish lady
Who makes potatoes prance.

"There was just one sweet potato.
He was golden-brown and slim:
The lady loved his figure.
She danced all night with him.
Alas, he wasn't Irish.
So when she flew away,
They threw him in the coal-bin
And there he is to-day,
Where they cannot hear his sighs--
His weeping for the lady,
The beauteous Irish lady,
The radiant Irish lady
Who gives potatoes eyes."

Glad to see you back.

Interesting, I would have expected the boom first (if at all) and then a loss of power. Unless the boom was first but due to the speed of sound you did not hear it first.

@Chumly,
That's what I thought. Unless, there was an initial boom that wasn't as loud. When I was a kid, I was woken up by a sonic boom once. The pilot had gone a bit crazy, I guess. Crashed soon after.
Regardless, back to the story at hand.. The funny thing was, after all was said and done, there were no sirens heard in the neighbourhood, so this could have happened miles away. Thus the sound and electricity switcheroo..
Hmm, I'll have to watch the news.

@Ceili,
I'm practicing guitar, while reading your posts, while watching The Big Bang Theory, so I'm listening on a number of levels.

@Chumly,
Big Bang is so goood. At this point, I've seen most of the episodes more than once in the last 4 months.

Wouldn't it be more fun to get involved in a big bang instead of just watching?
