Good morning:-) I am checking out for a day or two. Nothing personal to DS, but real life kicked my kneecaps pretty badly, and my spoon drawer is *empty*, so I'm taking a couple days to just isolate, read books I already knwo by heart b/c it's easy and soothing, and maybe if I get reallllly radical, watch TV. I have the health rights rally today---holding a sign in a wind is going to be fun (not)---but I caught Hubby's cold and between that, and some other crap? Yeah, bedtime for the puma. Hot fluids, bed rest, and Monday I up-and-at'em.
Or pretend I'm up and at 'em. Whichever.
Who is Roberto? It's the name of m ybaseball bat. For Roberto Clemente, a player who died when I was a tiny tot, but was one of my dad's fave players, so .... Do you name inanimate objects? Cars, etc.? The bat's about it for me, but our neighbor calls his Cooper Mini "Zelda". (Took me weeks to realize he meant the car and not a girlfriend. Ew.)
So check *this* out....

A few locations: What is that huge crystal mine in Mexico? Selenite crystals!
The flower fields? Just pretty cool.
The Bolivia site that looks like a mirror? Is a salt flat. Huge lithium salt reserves there, very valuable, and the layer of salt can, at the right angle, act as if it's a reflective surface in the right spots. (Most of it just looks like a big white flat, btw, anad is noted for its breeding flamingoes. Bright pink birds on white. Freaky, but true.)
There's a lake in Senegal that looks like Pepto-Bismol pink. It's highly saline, and the algae give it the pink color, which is most vivid in dry seasons. (Diluted, obviously, the water is less "pink".)
This video is a nice travelogue of just odd places: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OZbWtUe5B3Q It's narrated, no need for your resident nerrd;-)
OK, off to rest up. Blessings, all.:-)
I thought some of us might find this NY Times article interesting and validating. It's about the reasons that victims of "sexual misconduct" sometimes aren't believed, due to common misconceptions.The word "article" above has a link but here's the URL in case that doesn't work:https://www.nytimes.com/2017/11/30/us/sexual-harassment-weinstein-women.html
Good morning. I saw the physio-rehab doc finally yesterday. He relocated two ribs (ow!) and did a bit of acupressure on my neck (ah!) and then he went in to continue the years-long battle against twisty-turned pelvic scar tissue. Which was so twisty-turny, as it happens, my lower abdomen was carrying tons of strain. Feels like I did about 500 sit-ups/tilts. Ouch. But the scar tissue let go of the...
