What an amazing story.  

"That's when I was able to say this is a place that I can be connected to, that can be a home," he said. "And it took me 10 years to get back. I went back to New York (through the 1970s) and spent 10 years in New York prior to being able to return, but that was always the concept, game plan, dream, returning. I dreamt of Tanzania for three nights out of seven for 10 years."
A world away from the California where Jackie Robinson grew up or the Brooklyn where he made his name, Jackie's son David is living in Tanzania, happy to be a coffee farmer, father, teacher and vehicle for social and global change. It's an unexpected life, but it's his.

I'm always glad to hear the stories of people who found the places where they belong, and are now there.

Spread the signal.  
The countdown is on to rebuild communications with a spacecraft before it drifts past this summer. The craft has functional instruments, but NASA has no budget to reactivate the program. It's up to private donors and dedicated volunteers to recapture the abandoned spacecraft.

Said something similar to this at a young adults group at my dad's church and they pretty much said God isn't only love, but also equally justice.

They just want a witch hunt. Makes their religi-dicks bigger for their circlejerks prayer meetings.

Well, doesn't this make everyone's day?
Is 24 the new 50? A new study suggests that cognitive decline begins earlier than we think. The study of more than 3,300 volunteers tracked the relationship between age and the speed at which people make decisions and shift between tasks

Oh, hey, +Candice D -- just for, you know, planning purposes for your future:

#2 son woke up at 2:15 coughing.  He then proceeded to come downstairs to sleep on the hida-bed with me.  If you consider running around the room, jumping on me and singing for 90 minutes "sleeping."  He finally fell asleep at about 5am -- 20 minutes before I had to get up to get #1 son ready for school.

Thought you'd want to know.

Introduction
Drew Nicholson is an early-middle aged geek. He’s happily married the second time around, and has two fantastic sons. He’s a die hard Cubs fan, which contributes to his pathos, which makes being a poet marginally easier. He directed the Great Google+ Art Experiment video, which led directly to him being appointed Art Director of Sociologyplus.com, where he curated an arts community made up of painters and sketchers, musicians and songwriters, poets and videographers for a time. Circle him on Google+, where he writes poetry and short stories while engaging in some of the best conversations on the net. He’s was going to be the co-editor of the online writing journal “Scriptorum Tantillum”, but that never worked out, and has been published on CuriosityQuills.com. He harbors a deep love for Star Wars, Star Trek, Firefly, BSG, Horatio Hornblower, Farscape and David Brin novels, as well as a new found love for scotch to go with his long love affair with good beer.
