Gusher of lies

I saw this on http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-religion/3208559/posts and find it worth posting that they are using it to attack climate change in a new way.

I believe that only wind and solar are truly the cleanest sources. We use to much water in other processes. I like water, and yes I like food. It's not that the water table is ruined. The water used in the actual process becomes useless.

Winning the Iowa (75% vowel, 100% awesome!) primary is not possible unless the candidate supports ethanol. That means we are increasing the cost of food for crappy fuel to win.

RINO country is getting smaller

I find it amazing that the Tea Party is so harmful to the GOP. Luckily, I can't be voted out of the party. Not like "traitors like amnesty-loving Graham, Alexander, Jeff Flake and John McCain"!

'Forget About Hatch,' Colorado's Green Chile Obsession Is Going Home Grown

http://www.kunc.org/post/forget-about-hatch-colorados-green-chile-obsess...

"The whole purpose of this is we are striving to find ways to make unique crops that are adapted here to Colorado, particularly here in the Arkansas valley," said Bartolo, who only devotes a small portion of his time to chile breeding."

I'll have to send some Colorado Green Chile down to NM!

Regulatory Capture

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Regulatory_capture was the "word" of the day on marketplace.

HELOC

What does this mean?

"Term is 20 years, consisting of a 10-year advance (draw) period and a 10-year amortized repayment period"?

If I want to borrow $10,000 now, what would that mean? 3.64 APR is the rate.

Things

This web site is somewhat usable on a phone.

My point is a lot of things happened today. Mom's will is being formally being submitted to the court tomorrow.

Things are fine with me.

Lastpass is having connection issues

http://lastpass.com might not be the last password manager you ever need. Evidently, they are having issues connecting. I'm in local mode now. http://www.theregister.co.uk/2014/08/12/lastpass_outage/

Where has RG been? Hated by some, loved by more.

Galaxy Nexus is dead

I should have talked to AM. I'm getting a ~250 Galaxy SIII from Virgin Mobile. I'm planning to keep the 303 number.

I feel like I'm back in time having to use a computer to check the scores of web pages out there.

Simple interest

OK, I get a bill for 722. on 6/13. I forgot to deal with it. They send me a new bill for $783 on 7/30. They now say that it is $783. The interest goes up by $3. They add a new line for $58 and call it "+3% interest". How can that be?

Words matter

Rob is right!

Even the losers get lucky sometimes

THe Battle of Marks' Mills happened today back in 1864. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Marks%27_Mills

The fact that the Union army was so soundly defeated so late in the war is astonishing to me.

Top of the world

It's all about you Brenda!

"Everything I want the world to be
Is now comin' true especially for me
And the reason is clear, it's because you are here
You're the nearest thing to heaven that I've seen."

London, 1802

Another favorite from Wordsworth:

London, 1802

MILTON! thou shouldst be living at this hour:
England hath need of thee: she is a fen
Of stagnant waters: altar, sword, and pen,
Fireside, the heroic wealth of hall and bower,
Have forfeited their ancient English dower
Of inward happiness. We are selfish men;
O raise us up, return to us again,
And give us manners, virtue, freedom, power!
Thy soul was like a Star, and dwelt apart;
Thou hadst a voice whose sound was like the sea:
Pure as the naked heavens, majestic, free,
So didst thou travel on life's common way,
In cheerful godliness; and yet thy heart
The lowliest duties on herself did lay.[1]

I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud

I wandered lonely as a Cloud
That floats on high o'er Vales and Hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd
A host of dancing Daffodils;
Along the Lake, beneath the trees,
Ten thousand dancing in the breeze.

The waves beside them danced, but they
Outdid the sparkling waves in glee: –
A poet could not but be gay
In such a laughing company:
I gaz'd – and gaz'd – but little thought
What wealth the shew to me had brought:

For oft when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude,
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the Daffodils.
