good post Vee
I gotta admit there were times I wanted to ask him what happened, but thats not normally something I do, whether its on offbeat, a pm or emails I don't generally ask people something simply because I feel like its none of my business and besides if someone want to tell me something about their personal life, thats totally up to them and its stays right here in my head and isn't shared with others either. its not because I don't care, I know I say that all the time - I don't give a crap - I do really, just don't want to be nosey, lived with stuff like that growing up in my neighborhood and always pissed the h*ll out of me that everybody even knew when u farted. lol
I gotta say I love the way u say if u don't like someone - wonderful etc. cracks me up and reminds me of what my mom use to say all the time - they don't like me, they can kiss my irish azz. lol
anyway I hope what I said in my post earlier didn't annoy anybody because it certainly wasn't meant to do so, its just me yakking away like always, talking first before thinking about what I say.
just me.. don't like it? kiss my irish azz. LOL LOL
:))
Mind if I pass on kissing your Irish azz, lol, but to say I
admire what you have to say and you certainly don't annoy me.

Hmmmm .. my industry has not been known to use gimmicky offers such as those. We have always tried to show advantages based on quality or reducing waste, etc etc ... however I am trying the gimick of promoting volume buying .. many customers tend to make smaller orders every 2 to 4 weeks. If I can get them to double the order size by offering a 10% discount, and order every 1 or 2 months, then I make nearly twice as much per delivery and the customer saves money and time ... also, I can support nearly twice as many customers and make more per day. I will have to think about other ways to inspire someone to switch suppliers. Some of our competitors offer a free case for every tenth case ordered.
Sounds good to me...both the movie and the promotion.

We cannot lay the blame at the Royal baby's feet...he is

What we can do is lay the blame at the feet of the dictators
of the countries where babies are dying of starvation...the fat
cats...and I agree with you, it is disgusting it should be allowed to happen when our respective countries send aid to these countries. Where does the aid go? Not to those in need.

El,
Thanks for your 'welcome back'

catching up on a few things,
Yes,'twas great news re the royal baby
That all went well,
Kate & hubby seems real nice natural folks
And I doubt if they are in to all the ballyhoo
Surrounding them
(But, unfortunately) it goes with the job!!

I saw ..
on TV, outside the hospital,
a guy getting up on a ladder trying to get a
Better view...?...
the day the baby was born, when there was ZERO to see
Just a spokesman giving a few details!! Lol..
Talk about being carried away!

*****

El,

I'm sure you too, thought immediately
of Vee when the news of Dennis Farina's death
came in-sad.

Do you remember all the fun we had with the
Dennis/Vee novel we created between us,
And everyone had a go..

Happy memories, in the midst of sadness.

***

The weather has broken here too,
Rain forecast for 2days, but, it is needed.

Must go catch up around here now..

Yeah, good to be back.

<quoted text>Hi GN, nice to have you back. Where in France did you go? We're off for three days in October (treatment will be long gone by then)- ferry withy car to Roscoff, then a drive to St Malo and three nights in a B & B in the intra Muros - a great little hotel I know. Unbelievable, ferry, car, cabin over and three nights is £300 for the two of us.
Wow! That's a deal Tony!
Enjoy it to the fullest. Glad the treatment will be done and am hoping things are much better.

Well, El,
if you ask me,
you and Mr. P
prospectors should be!

When Welsh farmer Ifor Edwards, 56, dropped his keys on a tract of land he owns called Oak Farm in Bronington, he was determined to find them, so he and his wife, Anna, 40, called in metal-detecting experts from the Wrexham Heritage Society.

Cliff Massey, 83, found the keys, but he also found 14 medieval coins from the 14th and 15th centuries, according to a story published Monday in the Shropshire Star.

John Gittins, a coroner who performed an inquest on the findings, described the coins, which are composed of 90 percent silver and likely from the days of Edward III, Henry V and Henry VI, as a “treasure.”

It is one of my favorite images — Uranium Tailings No. 12, taken at Ontario’s Elliot Lake in 1995, part of photographer Edward Burtynsky’s troubling series documenting the ravages of mining. The most disturbing part of the work is the beauty apparent in all that ugliness: the molten orange of water tainted by nickel tailings, the taupe and gray shades of soil — smooth and tender-looking as skin — swept clean of living mess.

It’s an aesthetic paradox evoked by many industrial castoffs on wide-open land. The kelly-green pool of copper laced water that lingers at the bottom of the Santa Rita Pit near Silver City, N.M. The startling colors in the salt ponds on the edge of Utah’s Great Salt Lake. The elaborate whorls of road that lace Wyoming’s gas patches. I thought of this seeming contradiction as I stood on the viewing deck overlooking the deep-blue water that now fills the notorious Berkeley Pit, a defunct copper strip mine on the edge of Butte, Mont.

**********
The billions of gallons cradled here are highly acidic and thick with heavy metal pollution. In 1995, this toxic soup killed 342 migrating snow geese that took shelter upon it during a storm. Should the water top a certain level, it could begin spilling its poison into local groundwater and ultimately the Clark Fork River. That possibility has caused enough alarm that the mining companies responsible have installed a treatment plant to divert some of the inflowing water and clean it up. And yet, throughout all of this, the Berkeley Pit has managed to nourish a weird ecosystem all its own.

As Jason Zasky reported in November for the intriguingly titled Failure Magazine, it is “a rich source of unusual extremophilic microorganisms … fungi, algae, protozoans and bacteria, many of which have shown great promise as producers of potential anti-cancer agents and antiinflammatories.”

The dead geese even added their own germ to the mix. It’s an unusually hardy yeast — typically found only in the rectum of a goose — that can pull a lot of the heavy metals right out of the water. That means it could eventually be used to aid in toxic waste cleanup or secondary ore recovery (essentially, re-mining).“We are very grateful to the snow geese,” bioprospector and researcher Andrea Stierle told Zasky.
**********

Such resilience is not limited to the microbial world. A dreadlocked stray dog named “The Auditor” managed to eke out a solitary living on the Berkeley Pit Superfund Site from the late ’80s to the early aughts, occasionally scrounging handouts from miners. Even the surrounding communities have managed to squeeze positive and lively things out of the dreadful situation — from creating and performing a Cool Water Hula to raise awareness about Butte’s pollution in a humorous and accessible way, to constructing a new economy around the money coming in to heal this blasted ground.

This may be why places like the Berkeley Pit are magnetic. These landscapes aren’t really dead; they are in dramatic flux, the kind that not only destroys life, but also shapes it and creates it anew.

This article informed and entertained in its own right, but the passages within the asterisks are why this article appeared in search results, in particular the work of the researcher Andrea Stierle.

She has an amazing story about the role of serendipity has played in her work - a "gee whiz" or "things that make you go hmmmmm" tale.

**IF** you can listen to the audio story in this first link "OOPS" in these search results, or another radiolab link down the page, I recommend. Other links will do, however.
