Dear Dawn,

It is "good" to find "another piece" of the "family history" - you can see me at "eaglesflyhigher@gmail.com", along with my "profile", and other "public comments" over the years!

I have been known as: "Henry Wilder Foote IV", but also as: "Papa Foote" or "The Old Mountain Goat"!

Let's start "our communications" - it's time, Papa Foote, The Old Mountain Goat!

FYI - GOOD STUFF, from "Thoughtfully Thinking and Processing" for the Future!

"...It lifts off the table, hovers, and flies in different directions. At this point in its evolution, the bug is still tethered by thin wires that allow its designers to power and guide it. And landing remains an issue. The robot ends its sorties with all the grace of a mosquito nailed with a burst of Raid.

Still, the tiny craft's success – the team that designed it said it was the first such object to fly in a controlled manner – represents a key step in developing insect-size drones that designers say could one day search collapsed buildings for survivors after a disaster, sample an environment for hazardous chemicals before humans are sent in, or pinpoint enemy soldiers or terrorists holed up in urban areas..."

FYI - "THINGS" WILL "CHANGE", "EVERYONE" NEEDS TO "CHANGE" WITH IT, IN ORDER TO "LIVE"!

"...Off the New England coast, for instance, marine scientists tracked migration trends for 36 fish species and found that 75 percent had moved north or into deeper water or both to keep their cool, Dr. Fogarty says.

At the same time, "the Atlantic croaker, a subtropical species, is moving north and is having higher reproductive success as well" in northern waters, he says.

Meanwhile, fishermen in the Gulf of Maine are reporting highly unusual species for the area: black sea bass, which could earn them a tidy sum; new species of squid; and blue crabs, Fogarty adds..."

"WE HAVE ALEADY "STARTED THE JOURNEY INTO THE STARS"!

 "If we're ever going to become a true spacefaring civilization, we're going to have to think outside the box a little bit, were going to have to be a little bit audacious," Obousy said.

The Old Mountain Goat - "UNDERSTANDS" that "UNDERSTANDING" is "EVENTUALLY" the "GOAL"!

"NO STRONG GOVERNMENT" - YES, ON "ANARCHY" (A state of disorder due to absence or nonrecognition of authority)!

"Flexible" vs. "Inflexible" / "Progressive" vs. "Conservative"

One Definition for "Flexible": Able to be easily modifY to respond to altered circumstances or conditions.
One Definition for "Inflexible": Unwilling to change or compromise or adapt to the new circumstances of the day.

One Definition for "Progressive": Advancement toward better conditions or policies or methods; continuing to evolve.
One Definition for "Conservative": Traditional attitudes and values; cautious about change; typically to politics or religion.

EXAMPLE:
Before Columbus sailed out to see what was on the "other side" - most of the humans thought the Earth Planet was "flat", and that they would fall over the "edge of the world"! Finally, most humans began to "understand" that the Earth Planet was actually "round", so other "explorers" ventured out to see what "things" they would find! Columbus was a "really adventurous explorer" - "COLUMBUS" MUST HAVE BEEN "PROGRESSIVE", in order to "thoughtfully think it through"!

NOW:
The "continual war" between "progressive vs. conservative" thinking has been around for centuries! Sometimes, the "sides" have been "relatively calm" - sometimes, the "sides" have been "actively stormy"! But, the "war continues”!

"People Power" has its "time", if "they" want to get to the "conference table" and look for "better solutions" - BUT, “ENOUGH” NEED TO BE AT THIS "CONFERENCE TABLE" IN ORDER TO "COMPROMISE FAIRLY"!

IT'S TIME:
Me, The Old Mountain Goat, wants to "TRY AGAIN" - how about "YOU" - the "KEY" is in "OUR HANDS"!

TO PAPA II,

"AVOID DISCUSSION" - JUST MEANS THAT "YOU" ARE "NOT WILLING" TO "TRY" FOR A "BETTER WORLD"!

"IF MOST" - "AVOID DISCUSSION", THERE IS NO POINT IN "TRYING" FOR ANYONE!

"FOR ME" - I WANT TO "TRY NOW", BECAUSE "WE" HAVE ONLY "ONE LIFE" TO "LIVE"!

FROM PAPA I, THE OLD MOUNTAIN GOAT

To Brett LoGiurato, "The Writer", along with "The Younger Folks" - from "The Older Folks",

Definition: "LOGICAL"; easy to "UNDERSTANDING"

In order to "Communicate with Understanding", the "Young" need to "Slow Down", with "Speech and Writing", if the "Old" are to "Understand" - otherwise, the "Bridge" will not be there for "Communication" between "Us"!

Thank You, The Old Mountain Goat

FYI - THE "LOVE OF FINDING NEW STUFF" for The Old Mountain Goat to "PONDER WITH"!

“...If this gas is being accreted by the galaxies, then we need to understand how they're doing that. That information could, in principle, help us understand how galaxies like Andromeda, like our own Milky Way, can acquire gas to form new stars,” says Spencer Wolfe, a PhD candidate in astronomy at West Virginia University and the lead scientist on the project..."

"THIS" is "actually true" - some, "do not care", some, "do care" - that's "the way it is" in our "Earth Planet"!

"THIS" IS A WONDERFUL "FIND" - ABOUT OUR "EARTH PLANET"!
The Old Mountain Goat - Likes "This" Stuff"!
NPR Social Tools
Scientists have discovered water that was sealed in Canadian bedrock for nearly half of Earth's history. It may contain the descendants of ancient microbes. The discovery could give scientists new insights into early life on Earth and inform the search for life on other planets.

Bottom Line

For several years now, neither the pro-choice nor the pro-life label has been dominant among Americans. Nevertheless, 51% of Americans perceive that most Americans are pro-choice -- slightly more than the 45% personally taking the pro-choice stance. Barely a third of Americans, 35%, think most Americans are pro-life, considerably less than the 48% who are pro-life.

While Americans overestimate the strength of the "pro-choice" position, the same poll found them vastly underestimating the degree to which their fellow Americans support gay marriage. In other words, on abortion they think society is more liberal than it is; on gay rights, they think society is more conservative than it is. This seeming contradiction might be explained in terms of timing, as on both issues, Americans' perceptions of public opinion are merely a few years out of date. As recently as 2006, and routinely prior to 1998, the majority of Americans called themselves "pro-choice." And until 2011, the majority opposed gay marriage.

While it is unclear what impact Americans' current perceptual errors might have on their behavior or on public policy relative to abortion and gay rights, it is possible their perceptions will catch up with reality if current attitudes are sustained for any length of time.

FYI - from The Old Mountain Goat - LOOK AT THE LAST PARAGRAPH, PLEASE!

"...A government founded in a revolutionary moment is always vulnerable to a determination by a zealous minority that its revolutionary ideals have been compromised by itself. When that happens, each side will engage in its favored rhetoric, one proclaiming, watch out, they’re coming for our guns, the other warning that militant right-wing nuts are preparing themselves for armed insurrection. One side will cry “tyranny”; the other will reply, “You guys are crazy.” And both will claim the title of true American. That’s where we are..."

YES - but, "EVERYONE from EVERYWHERE" is "WHERE WE ARE"!

SORRY - "THAT'S JUST HOW IT IS"!

Introduction
"The Old Mountain Goat"

Since my Joanna has let go of her life, Charlie (my little companion dog - now, also let go of his life) and I (Papa Foote, "The Traveling Man") were still walking down the "road of life" - smelling the thoughts of the world. But now, since my stroke has started to creep into my old body, my mind is still with the "Eagle’s Flying Higher" but mostly, I just want to try to squeeze my thinking and writing into just a few words that count towards a better world - like no more anger and selfish thinking that comes from warring between human clans instead of helping each other in our World! My choices are my own - from my inner self!

"Thoughts"

Plant Kiindness and Harvest Love
Beware of Charlatans*
*False expert: Somebody who falsely claims a special skill or expertise - Early 17th century: "to babble, patter," an imitation of the sound of empty talk!
Keep Your Mind Open and Balanced
Try To Be True To Your Inner-Self

"Facts"

Some "Facts" are actually truths that we are able to uncover and understand!

Some "Facts" are only truths until something changes as we become able to understand more!

Some "Facts" will never become truths because we will never be able to understand!

"So"

That is why the human mind has trouble with "factual conclusions"!

What am I afraid of and why? Because, after living many experiences, and with my mind still balanced with my thoughts and thinking, what is there to be afraid of, as I slowly get to the time of letting go from life - and, perhaps, going forward to more adventures! -The Old Goat-
