Oh I remember a few times landing a Paris over yellow fields of mustard
We were in that region last year: the main current golden crop comprised "canola" for their hungry autos

That's how I discovered what that was. I used to ask what is the canola plant?

We might be of the few who knows.

Inauguration spending is good for the economy. A friend told me a Republican friend called to complain about the grass being trampled on the Mall :-)

I was surprised to hear about 25,000 persons greeted Bush on his return to Texas...visible proof of those extant, in Lincoln's word, "fooled all of the time." Of course, they may just be household staff for the Bushes, paid to show up for the cameras. Watching the oath being administered it was hard to tell, but I think those two Harvard guys were gunning at each other just for lawyer bait-laughs...Roberts came off as more of a geek -- he didn't even read the thing correctly and seemingly put in the middle name "Hussein" as a piece of baiting, and when he ended it in a question, "so help you God?" he made an effective blasphemous mockery of it...I'm beginning to think the guy may be in that part of Catholicism everyone is suing, lately...the market gave Obama a Bronx cheer -- he's got a lot to handle, all right

Interesting observations.. 25K is not much for TX. Like you said a lot of employees, etc. There could be a rodeo in Midland at this time. I am kidding.) The town is in the middle of nowhere. And very cold now.

Yes, Roberts had some fun for history to notice. His mistake is a surprise to me. Perhaps he just made a mistake. Cheney was not visible but for a second. Always behind the scene

I wrote yellow fields before I saw/heard the first lady wore yellow at the inauguration :-)

Anyway, what actions should be taken to correct the banking business? I wonder if our system is worse than the EU's. Remember two big failures, one in UK and the other in France.. but then I don't read EU news regularly

Cheney had wrenched his back packing, apparently. My back aches lately, too, so even though he's pretty much an enemy, I wish his back well and mine, too -- as well one hopes we've seen the last of his back until any explications/investigations of the Halliburton conditioning of our current planetary problems

When I saw that, I recollected that Yellow is the emperor's color in old China and Japan: peasants were disallowed from wearing it on the outside. The old Bushes scarves at royal purple were another matter...relates more into their view of themselves as some kind of royalty, one supposes; the old man is so wooden and now practically happily doddering...previously he had reminded me of wooden statue Trajan, who is said to have just looked straight forward in his royal processions, not even remarking on the multitudes to the left or right...and the recent dedication of an aircraft carrier in old Bush's name? Late Roman, too: in the classical period persons had to be respectfully regarded and deceased, to have things named for them: the recent naming of stuff while people are still alive smacks of Caligula claiming to be a god...it did not go unnoticed that the JFK aircraft carrier was retired by the Bush: conspiracy theory has the old Bush part of the hit team that got that Kennedy...correcting the banking-financial system? Hah, as reads a line in a film from the 1930's -- "That's a hot one!" It starts with accounting disclosures and ends with repairs: philosophically perhaps we should examine the Pleiadean system that does not require money and financial systems: after all they [money-finance-banking systems] are social adaptations subject to secret corruption(s) by elitists

First, sorry to hear about back problems but his might be a fakey because I doubt he would pick a box on his move out to hasten the process, etc..

From a psychological angle, back needs to be supported.. so tummy muscles come to mind and yoga stretch on the floor as remedies.. and flowers??

Yes, one could list war activities as source of energy shortage, pollution, death, etc

You caught me as red handed: although a kriyaban, I have avoided my Maha Mudra's for some time; even that which closely resembled them, an exercise from a Chiropractor (a Dr. Livingston, I presume -- that was/is his real name) I had ended off last Summer since I figured lots of bicycle riding would take up the back-slack -- no such luck...I resumed the chiropractic leg lifts -- yester morning; upon ascending the "HangUps" machine today there was this ominous "pop" in my lower back at which I nearly would have laughed had it not hurt so much...needless to say, I can see how old Odysseus might have welcomed the manta-poisoned lance from Telegonus -- with even a bit of a smile, as he said, "I'll say 'hello' to your mother, son..." I tend to think of pains in the lower back, rather as pains in the high a**; from what I could see I had that thought about Cheney, too -- the difficulty he exhibited upon getting into the car notwithstanding -- no sympathy from here, got pains of our own, not a few of which were caused by him in his Halliburtonish double dealing...as for flowers? We'd go back to our Odysseus and seek out some lotus to eat, but I don't think that's legal here -- so a double vodka martini will have to do, with an aspirin garnish...and as economic things go, the Bush legacy continues:
http://www.nationalpriorities.org/costofwar_h...
at $34l.4 million per day -- it's going to reach $600 billion any day now, and rising....

One gets into the battle fever of Celts, on occasion, and forgets to take a drink...Having drunk from the Well of Saint Brigit near the Cliffs of Moher, I am now enjoying my "rehyration" with a martini...

I'm glad you didn't say "hydration" as that reminds one of Hydra :-)

The answer is? No: the message does point out that Psalm 118 v. 8 is exact center of the Bible? Statistical interest for readers

P.S. Looks like your water budget is in deficit, e.g. min. 2 liters per day

You are probably correct: living in a version of Frank Herbert's "Dune," series we have an aversion to the local water and filter it...the water statistic for an human body is impressive: the eye being 98-99% water down through bones being 20-22% water -- our bodies resemble those Spanish wine sacks, walking, averaging a slurry 70-75% water...from the "purusha" point of view our bodies are composed, as Gautama said humorously, of "muck and slime." At times I think of drinking distilled water, to help flush & carry off the other impurities -- there is no question in my mind that our environmental problems create micro-bad environments some times in our bodies...wearing a magnetic waist-belt is helping some with this business -- it never ceases to amaze me what placebo's can do, and Scotch (:-)

Getting back to the topic at hand, with all the distractions of the banking-financial systems going Coriolis effect, we must reiterate as at the top/start of this thread:
http://www.nationalpriorities.org/costofwar_h...
At $341.4 million per day, this expense must be pared with black budget abusers exposed and dispensed with at the first priority. The analogy is this: a teacher lets some boys go to the rest room -- some meet up with Larry Craig, Mark Foley and Randall Cunningham, others take paper towels and stop up the sinks, still others turn the faucets on full and tape them with duct tape so that they overflow the sinks, still others light & drop fireworks down the toilets & flush...all that while, back at the class room there is the usual tittering and fidgeting until it appears the lights may be flickering as something is shorting out on the circuits somewhere...We must find the worst cases and correct them: the major flows must be stanched: it is like triage in a medical training disaster scenario -- save some of the patients are large/obese, and some like Lehman Brothers, are already dead

Good time to start thinking about infrastructure repairs and suitable make-work projects -- looks like we are headed for a new age deeper Recession/ Depression at this point:
http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090126/ap_on_bi_...
At $341.4 million per day, perhaps it's not really that economically ROI-ish to continue the "hunt for Osama," and so forth: and perhaps a special tax surcharge could be put on those oil companies most benefiting from our invasions & occupations of Iraq...some of the troops brought home could help rebuild our storm damaged cities and neglected roadways & bridges, oh, Happy Chinese New Year

For what it's worth, one cast an hexagram from the I Ching and it came out #53, Jen, Gradualness, signifying basic positivity, the which is always nice -- in other news, consumer spending for fireworks in China was up, showing they can still afford to celebrate in a growing way
