The season of controversy in the southern U.S. - its thunderstorms and mystery and much of what makes both interesting, also makes them dangerous. "In the USA civilian sector, lightning causes losses of $4-$5 billion per year (NLSI, 1999). In the government sector, the military (DDESB - Department of Defense Explosive Safety Board) has reported 88 identifiable lightning induced munitions explosions with costs and deaths not calculated. DDESB was formed as a result of the July 1926 Picatinny Arsenal incident, which killed 14 people and cost $70 million. The US Department of Energy (DOE) has reported 346 known lightning events to its facilities during the 1990-2000 period." [NLSI]

The Dog Has The Right Idea And Approach

When two minutes or three have gone bye and I haven't petted her, my dog will bump up against me with her snout, its a way of saying, "hey, you haven't petted me in a while, what's the deal?" Its a nice thing though, because it shows that she does in fact relate to me. Hmm, wonder if we might take a lesson on getting along with each other on some level from this behavior?

Probably not

Have you ever heard something, then tried to determine what it was that you heard? Seen something but wondered, "could that be real?" If you've ever had such an experience, express yourself, we'd love to hear about it.

The Day of all days

Days - it has a nice ring to it doesn't it, it might be daze, in some instances, because rare is the day that you go through it without
feeling that your senses have been sent reeling. We move through
these lives so quickly that we hardly have a chance to gasp, much
less catch our breath. Kurzweil is making the point constantly
that we really aren't getting our minds around what is coming
but that it's going to be here anyway. [click]
