I had a young friend so fascinated with fans that one of his first Halloween costumes (*the* first he chose on his own) was to dress as a box fan.

In other news - the Tavern has opened for Christmas - but sneak in the back way - Cletus is trying to charge admission at the main door.

When my daughter was that age she was also fascinated by fans, though she preferred the types that are on stands or sit in the room and oscillate. Every time the breeze passed her face there would be a happy little "gasp!" at the puff of air.

She'd probably get Donovan, her son, to beat me up. If he could stop looking at the ceiling fans long enough. He's really into ceiling fans, and he's learned to make them go faster and stop and everything by using the remote. For two years old he's pretty bright. And tough.

Maybe if you pronounced it "Asymptote" it would get over better. Or, you could at least get indefinitely closer to him or her, even if never quite arriving.

I think two of them are secretarii, and one is a secretariat. In the old days it was common for someone to come barging into an office asking "Where's my secretartiat?".

You probably need to invest in a carbon-based wetware systems solution for that, Rapaire, preferably female (better RAM) -- what used to be known as "a really good secretary'.

It has to do with global warming, and it's starting in the east.

Well, I lobbed a stinkbomb last night and I see the thread is back at the top, but I'm tired of squabbling with folks, so I think I'll let that one lie.

I just took a bird feeder, a shepherd's crook garden thing and a bag of seed over to my neighbors across the street. He complained that I'm hogging all of the birds lately, so I'm leveling that landing strip, so to speak.

Good MORNING, Mom! Warm, humid, sunny day here in Texas! My family in Washington haven't been so lucky, with all of the rain and trees falling. I called to check on an old friend north and east of Seattle who said the worst they got was rain, but there are some graphic photos online about the storm damage. As for me down here, I'm going to give the dogs baths today, because it's supposed to be in the low 80s by afternoon.

Wierd winter.

Dunno how they got there, it's a problem for the courts,
But there's men of all sizes lining up hip to hip
Just begging for a hitch on some big rocket ship
They're giving theguys from NASA every kind of lip
They're telling it long, and they're telling it short
They wanna get a ride to the cloud of Oort
To chase the svelte wahinis way out in the Oort.

Was there any of that dust that Peter Pan sprinkled over Wendy, John, and Michael? Or are the scientists keeping that for themselves? And to find magnesium ovaltine in the dust demonstrates that the solar system can't be as old as they think.

Scientists Forced to Rethink Solar System

Scientists used to think that the formation of the solar system was a fairly orderly affair. They were wrong. The analysis of comet dust collected by Stardust shows that things were much more chaotic 4.5 billion years ago.

There is something comforting about a theory. A good one, like Albert Einstein's theory of relativity, imposes order on a series of seemingly unrelated observations. A bad one, though, imposes order where there is none -- and that seems to be the situation now facing planetary scientists.

Material collected from the tail of the Wild 2 comet in 2004 by NASA's Stardust spacecraft has now been exhaustively examined. The results, published in Friday's issue of the journal Science, show that the formation of our solar system may not have been quite as orderly as researchers thought. The prevailing assumption had been that comets were made of space dust from outside the solar system. But scientists also found tiny bits of material forged in the ultra-hot inner solar system among the collected particles.

"It was extremely exciting," University of Washington astronomer Donald Brownlee, who headed up the research team which published in Science, told Reuters. "We expected the comet to be largely made out of interstellar grains, materials that formed before the solar system formed and were never really affected much by the solar system."

In other words, the primordial cloud of material, which 4.5 billion years ago became Mars, Earth, Jupiter and Neptune, was much less settled than first thought. Somehow, material created in the extreme temperatures near the sun was catapulted into the outer reaches of the solar system where the comets formed. Among the tiny granules collected by Stardust -- dust particles smaller than a grain of sand -- were bits of calcium aluminum, which is among the oldest matter in the solar system, and magnesium olivine, the greenish compound found in the sand of some beaches in Hawaii.

"You were transporting material over really big distances," Phil Bland, a scientist from Imperial College in London who was also involved in the research, told Reuters. "So that's kind of wacky for us planetary scientists."

The switch-thingie on the power pole just outside the employees' entrance. It was broken, it was raining, and it was snapcracklepopping like crazy from the water dripping inside. The power company people said that it could have exploded at any time -- damaging the pole and the Library building, the Library's contents and computers, and incidentally my car. It also would have shut off power to about half the Old Town area.

Speaking of explosives, the cops arrested a guy yesterday who violated his probation by bringing an explosive device (CO2 cylinder filled with gunpowder and fused) on his visit to his probation officer.

Probably the brother of the guy who walked up the the West Entrance this morning, read the sign the we were closed for electrical repairs, and then walked around and tried to get in the East Entrance. You know, just because the place is closed on ONE side....

And for the first time is simply ages we had all of the computers, lights, and everything turned off.

It's a good thing it was taken care of before it exploded!

Ode to Oxytocin



…To be with those I like is enough,
To stop in company with the rest at evening is enough,
To be surrounded by beautiful, curious, breathing, laughing flesh is enough…
I do not ask any more delight, I swim in it as in the sea…
All things please the soul, but these things please the soul well.

I should bury that remark, I don't want to call out the stinkers by saying their names or initials.

Robert Frost is a good foil to that kind of attention:

Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening

Whose woods these are I think I know,
His house is in the village though.
He will not see me stopping here,
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer,
To stop without a farmhouse near,
Between the woods and frozen lake,
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake,
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound's the sweep,
Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
