Attempted finding the passage of Homer's Iliad <where he describes Noha's flood> but found an equally interesting page containing the Voynich Manuscript, plus.......
<also at the Space.com site - check out Saturn's photo>

That photo of "Noah's Flood" is amazing, as are all the others. The only thing missing from ehBeth's good looking cover were the peanuts and Crackerjacks. And yes, I remember hump day too. And I had a cat, now deceased, named Odin.

And thanks for the bee link, Stradee. The bee decline will end up costing this country and its people billions and billions, before they are able to come back in any great number. Catastrophe.

That is some impressive looking iceburg.

ebBeth's photo sure made me lust after broadband. And the National Geographic Channel? Would love good cable again too.

sumac, the NG channel terrific. If you have access to Direct TV, the monthly charges vary depending what program package you choose. You may be able to register for just the cable channels <instead of local channels> which significantly reduces monthly costs.

I suppose I could take a turn at it. Carry on folks, while I ponder 60 and a suitable intro topic.

Oh, yes, more Malta. c.i.'s photos and thread on Travel have been fantastic. Here is the link for your viewing pleasure. If I can't retrieve it, I will post it in another window. I'm afraid this will get dropped in Yahoo. I will return with it.

pwayfarer,
Hope you see this, and check out c.i.'s travelogue and photos on Malta. It would be interesting to hear and see how you concur, or differ.

Can't tell you all how happy I am to report that last evening, the House of Reps BANNED THE SALE OF WILD HORSES FOR SLAUGHTER!

The vote: 249-159

HURRAY WILDCLICKERS!!!!!!!!!!

I'm really looking forward to seeing and hearing more of pwayfarer's trip to Malta. The lady has an extraordinary vision and voice.

I'm sure that the Senate will follow suit. It will certainly be seen as a win-win vote for everyone.

ehBeth - Since you know how to reach pwayfarer, how about telling her about c.i.'s thread re: Malta?

Rain, rain, stay awhile; go away from some other place. 3.5" down in the rain barrel this year.

Stradee - tks so much for these news, I know it's a subject close to our hearts and I hope the Senate confirms this monstrosity of killing our wild horses for "meat export" must stop once and for all:

Helen, what a lovely photo! They are magnificent animals arn't they?

With the huge margin of votes from the House, I'm confident the Senate will pass the legislation. The only problem now is finding good homes for the horses rounded up by the BLM. Enacting laws banning the grazing and raising of cattle on federal lands would certainly be beneficial for horse and burro herds, as well as predator animals though. We've still much to accomplish for wildlife and domestic animal protection.

Have a wonderful trip, and again, thanks for all you do for our animal buds. Godspeed

ehBeth...I realize that, but she may be too weary to read backwards through this to see the existence of the link.
