A story for my techie friends.  You are not the only one with the need for a three finger salute.  Bloomberg has once again proved that the easiest solution is frequently just turn the D&^^^ thing off and try again.  I think it funny that one of the highest dollar operation in the world with multiple redundant systems for full time operation had to reboot to get back online.  Makes me feel much better about my tiny operation that occasionally has the same problem with the same solution.

My most beautiful, frazzled, agitated, and, exhausted wife just before the wedding of our youngest daughter Catherine.

The wild eagle at rest for the night after a quiet day if swimming, bicycle riding and movies. Caped off with hotdogs and Smores over the camp fire with wine for the adults. A great start for a week in the wilderness.

Who finished the google crossword and how many cheat did you use.  I had to look-up the riddle of the sphinx, and a diner cupful.

While I don't have the statistics to back me up, I suspect this list could be extended back to roman times or even earlier. I find it hard to imagine a way to use military force against a foreign country to effect changes in government unless it is a full takeover, and as the Soviet Union discovered, even that does not work forever.

Think Lafayette's assistance to the colonies during our war of independence.  No, you can't effect change in a foreign country, but you can provide strategic aid to the local faction that CAN.

Between his regard for the Americans and his animosity to Britan as an 18th century superpower, Lafayette had a clear preference.   I'm not at all sure we have that kind of clarity in Syria.

Arrrgh.....

Just when I thought the new year was off to a good start I came across the latest graph of global warning. I found an article on Mashable and the New York Times that use the graph below to declare the world has been warming since the 1900 and we are all doomed if we don't do something.

As an engineer I look at the data and see a Sine wave with a period of about 100 years. Since we know for sure the Sun has a radiation cycle of 11 years is it not possible it also has a radiation cycle of 100 years.

The most irritating part is that the politicians will take the linear projection and do some foolish thing then in 10 years or so claim success when the temperatures start falling even if what they did failed miserably and cost billions of dollars and thousands of lives in the process.

Arrrgh...

Ever wonder why such charts tend to start at 1880?  For perspective, check the data for the last 2000 years.  You will be somewhat less depressed.

Found this today on brainy quotes. I like Thomas Sowell. Here he succinctly displays my position on Oboma Care.

"It is amazing that people who think we cannot afford to pay for doctors, hospitals, and medication somehow think that we can afford to pay for doctors, hospitals, medication and a government bureaucracy to administer it."

Thomas Sowell

I just donated to help the Weston A Price create a lab to continue the research of Weston A Price into the nature of Nutritious foods.  You may want to contribute or join the organization.  They have a great Quarterly Newsletter.
You can help WAPF realize our dream of an independent research lab to study nutrient-dense food. The Univ. of Illinois assures us complete access to the Burnsides Research Lab if we make an annual contribution of $300000. Thanks to our contribution of $100000, our own Chris Masterjohn, PhD, ...

Introduction
Born in Macon Georgia at a very early age which, I quickly discovered, is a really tough place to start life.  I could not do anything for myself.  As luck would have it, I had a wonderful mother and father.  They took care of everything for many years.  Fed me raw milk and home grown tomatoes. Fresh field corn and fish they caught in the river.  Let me do dumb things like falling out of a tree house and failed to kill me when I spoiled plans, wasted materials, and generally made an ass of myself.  All in all it has been and continues to be a really great ride and I look forward to many more years of having fun and causing mischief.
Bragging rights
I am a pretty good photographer when you can get me to do it. Earlier in my life I created PeachNet, the network for education in Georgia, but I had a lot of excellent help with that project.

I have used Lauck Motors from the day it was purchased by Sammy Ducket. I knew Sammy's reputation from his work at one of the largest Mercedes dealers in Atlanta, RBM. AT RBM Sammy had an excellent record as a lead service technician until he left to open his own shop. He brought to his new business, all the years of training and the desire to please customers gained in his previous positions. Over the years, he and Lauck Motors have remained true to their roots. Quality, customer pleasing service using original equipment parts at reasonable prices. He has maintained 4 Mercedes and one Audi convertible for me. He still maintains my classic 1991 Mercedes 420SEL (1/4 million miles and counting). I would not take it anywhere else. They assign the same mechanic each time, if they can, so the mechanic knows your car and how you like it maintained. The thing I like best about the service at Lauck Motors is the easy way it is delivered. Call for an appointment. Arrive at the appointed time with a list of services you would like. They take your list, look at the mileage and discuss any other services that may be needed. You leave to go about your business and they call when it is ready. You pick it up knowing the job was done right. In all the years they have worked on my cars, they have never had to rework a repair or service. I can not say that about any other repair facility and I have used many others on my kids cars. While I have no connection with Lauck Motors nor any of their employees or owners except as a very satisfied customer, I have and do recommend them to anyone needing the services they provide. They do not disappoint and frequently they delight me.
