FINDING TRUTH WHEREVER IT MAY BE FOUND:  "Technology is nothing.  What's important is that you have faith in people, that they're basically good and smart, and if you give them tools, they'll do wonderful things with them."  Steve Jobs

QUOTE II:  "One could not be a successful scientist without realizing that, in contrast to the popular conception supported by newspapers and mothers of scientists, a goodly number of scientists are not only narrow-minded and dull, but also just stupid."  James Watson (co-discoverer of DNA)  Both quotes found in the book "The Last Days of Night"


On pictures that I was hoping would turn out but didn't really:

The brown sign in the picture below reads, "Glendale Cemetery: Beauty, History, Serenity."  The Orange sing next to it says, "BLASTING ZONE AHEAD"

 This was in the Thirsty Dog men's restroom:
If you can't read the second part it says, "If employee is busy, you may wash your own hands."

Speaking of the Thirsty Dog, David Stavars pictured below will be speaking at the next Theology on Tap on Wednesday, December 14th.
The blimp was flying over the other day.  I used to know the sound of it anywhere.  I could be in my office with headphones on and the dog barking and I would know that the blimp is passing by.  This one is not only considerably larger, it is also sneaky!

re: the serene cemetery near the blasting zone...

On one beautiful summer day, years before she died, my Mom asked me to accompany her to purchase a grave plot at Lorain Calvary Cemetery. She wanted to be buried in a wide open area, with unobstructed view, with all headstones flush to the ground. Most importantly, she wanted no trees anywhere that could "grow their roots into her." No amount of reasoning with her, i.e., that she would be inside a metal coffin, within a concrete burial vault, would dissuade her opinion.

After she died and was buried,of course, the cemetery changed its policies: Upright tombstones and trees are now allowed in all of the newer sections. So that grassy area with level grave markers, where she was laid to rest, is now riddled with newly-planted trees and upright headstones! It is always something...
