And Donuel, in the meantime, just posted no. 57300.
He can have it.
I'm only hear to hoist MOM back upstairs.

After a small group of men spend the morning bashing through the small portion of the Fort Worth forest that is my back yard, a limb is now down from contact with the electrical wire. And the pine that was next to it got a really bad trim in the process. Gives me something to plan for this summer.

My keyboard died this morning. I shall obtain one from the Replacement Depot, and then bury the old one with Taps and a 21 gun salute...taps from a hammer.

I was posting by copying, letter by letter, from the special characters file. Chose, copy, chose the next letter, copy, etc. and then copy the string. This is a very tedious way to do things. It is nearly as bad as posting each letter in ASCII.

I am right now using an old keyboard that was laying around somewhere in the house. It is better than a quill pen or writing with my finger in blood, but not by much.

Slowly, I am unpacking from my journey.

I heard a tree fall in my woods, but I could not find it. I suspect that what I heard was not one of my trees at all, but that famous tree that fell in the woods but didn't make a sound because nobody was around to hear it. In fact, it did make a sound, but that sound has been floating around the atmosphere undetected until it chose to land on my back porch at 1:00 PM yesterday. Lucky me! I feel so special!

Unfortunately, I have solved the fallen tree mystery and it has naught to do with quantum dynamics, parallel universes, UFOs or any other SF stuff.

It was not a tree that fell, but only a mid-sized limb. It landed on top of my pottery studio, whose metal roof amplified the sound of ipact. It only sounded like an entire tree.

I am sorry the solution is so banal and mundane. I shall endeavor to endow the next such occurrence with more cosmic significance.

BWL, it hardly counts if there wasn't a fire associated with the falling limb. I wish I'd seen the show when my hackberry sagged into my Afghan pine, the slow-motion slumping limb putting pressure on the hot wire and small branches burning through and dropping to the ground. The hackberry was so tangled in the pine that they had to take turns cutting pine then hackberry to finally clear the lines. You can't tell anything happened to that big old hackberry but the pine looks like a bottle brush that was left too close to a burner on the stovetop - instead of melted plastic bristles it's just a line of stobs left after the branches were lopped.

My studio is physically fine, but it is having some emotional issues. After all, it had known that limb for twenty years. When the studio woke up in the morning, it always said, "Hello sun! Hello birds! Hello limb!" Now it says,"Hello sun! Hello birds! Hello place where limb used to be (sob)!"

Okay, but I'd like to see photos of your ceramics, B-Dub.

It's only May and it's too darned hot right now. I was going to walk back to the creek to take a photo, but my brain says it is going to explode if I stay out there in the 100o weather any longer. I've been out a few minutes at a time working on tidying and (mostly) clearing the path to the grill to spatchcock a chicken. Right now I could put the bird in the unlit grill and it would be half-way to cooked temperature in a couple of hours. Slap it on the hot concrete first and it'd be completely ready (if gritty) even sooner.*

Ah, halfcooked chicken. I remember it from my youth. First we'd snatch a chicken and prepare it for cooking*. Then we'd cook it over a fire, using the time-tested "stick it in a can with some water" method. Then, overwhelmed with hunger, we'd eat it. Later we'd all get sick.




*That is, be certain it was dead. Cooking live chickens is both messy and dangerous. Free nutritional hint: feathers are a good source of dietary fiber.

The chicken came out great, and today I watered the edge of the brick area beside the patio so I can dig out the grass, put in sand, the put down more bricks. I'm tired of nearly breaking an ankle at the edge of the patio (the dogs dug it up). They'll dig again, but further from where I want to walk.

Level the sand, put down some bricks, level that, repeat as needed. A weed barrier under the sand and bricks is useful in the long run. Putting in bricks is a lot like leveling tombstones, and I've had lots of experience with both.

The chief difference between leveling tombstones and installing patio bricks is that one is done to mark where a dead body is located and the other is sometimes done to hide where a dead body is located.

Meanwhile, if you want to think about something profound, even deep, this is an unpublished link to a video I digitized off of a VHS tape. Mr. Rogers on ABC Nightline. Watch all 20 minutes and you'll understand the true meaning of altruism.

Oh, yeah. Donuel, remember that in two complex dimensions, the K3 surfaces furnish the only compact simply connected Calabi–Yau manifolds. Non simply-connected examples are given by abelian surfaces. Enriques surfaces and hyperelliptic surfaces have first Chern class that vanishes as an element of the real cohomology group, but not as an element of the integral cohomology group, so Yau's theorem about the existence of a Ricci-flat metric still applies to them but they are sometimes not considered to be Calabi–Yau manifolds.

Believe it or not Yau and Calabi are not new to me. Yang-Mills in comparison are really on to something. Yau and friends strive to such minute detail that they are not seeing the forest for the trees.
They are at least two assumptions away from seeing my conceptual universe born of torsion and energy.
They see with sub atomic holographic eyes, i see the universe in torsional space time spirals that gave rise to all particles and dimensions.

Even at our core we are all programed by spiral geometry

Hi, Mom!

I caught a good-sized shark this morning and had to clean out my freezer to accommodate all the packages of shark meat. I doubt I was ever going to actually use that five year old package of beignet mix anyway.

Hey, Bee-Dub! Here's a way to use your shark meat!

Take one large shark, gut and discard the fins, tail, innards, the cartilage and the head (BTW, a very healthy oil is processed from the liver and used as a food supplement). Cut flesh into large pieces.

Wash in running water to get all slime and blood off. Dig a large hole in coarse gravel, preferably down by the sea and far from the nearest inhabited house - this is to make sure the smell doesn't bother anybody. Put in the shark pieces, and press them well together. It's best to do this when the weather is fairly warm (but not hot), as it hastens the curing process. Cover with more gravel and put heavy rocks on top to press down. Leave for 6-7 weeks (in summer) to 2-3 months (in winter). During this time, fluid will drain from the shark flesh, and putrefication will set in.

When the shark is soft and smells like ammonia, remove from the gravel, wash, and hang in a drying shack. This is a shack or shed with plenty of holes to let the wind in, but enough shade to prevent the sun from shining directly on the shark. Let it hang until it is firm and fairly dry: 2-4 months. Warm, windy and dry weather will hasten the process, while cold, damp and still weather will delay it.

Slice off the brown crust, cut the whitish flesh into small pieces and serve. A large glass of something strong (like ice cold Ever Clear) helps.

This is called hákarl and is one of the national dishes of Iceland. Bon appetite!

I think I'll stick with "Cut the shark meat into roughly one-inch cubes, dip in egg, dust with fine corn meal, deep fry in canola oil until golden brown."

Icelanders (and other people who live where the sun doesn't shine half the year) have too much time on their hands, so they come up with weird things to do with fish and, somehow, convince themselves that they've created something delicious. After all, if it takes the better part of a year to create, it has to be be good, even if it tastes like week-old snot.

Okay, Bee-Dub, try this recipe instead.

         1. Dissolve 1 cup salt in 1/2 gallon water. Soak 2 heads of Napa or other cabbage, quartered, in the salt water for 3 to 4 hours.
       2. Combine a bunch of peeled garlic, a couple inches or more of peeled ginger root, and fish sauce (anchovy is fine) and/or salted shrimp in food processor or blender until finely minced.
       3. In large bowl, combine daikon or other radishes, chipped green onions, torn mustard greens, garlic mixture, about 1/2 cup chili powder, and 1 tablespoon salt. Toss gently but thoroughly. (If mixing with your hands, be sure to wear rubber gloves to avoid chili burn.)
       4. Remove cabbage from water and rinse thoroughly. Drain cabbage in colander, squeezing as much water from the leaves as possible. Take cabbage and stuff radish mixture between leaves, working from outside in, starting with largest leaf to smallest. Do not overstuff, but make sure radish mixture adequately fills leaves. When entire cabbage is stuffed, take one of the larger leaves and wrap tightly around the rest of the cabbage. Put the stuffed cabbage in a or stoneware jar 1-gallon jar, pressing down firmly to remove any air bubbles. Cover or screw the lid on.
       5. Let sit for at least 2 to 3 days in a cool place before serving. Remove former cabbage and stuff from jar and slice into 1-inch-length pieces. Refrigerate after opening.

Here's another use for that shark (or any other fish, like sardines and mackerel and crappie):

Cut a pound of whole fish (bones and guts and all) into 1" pieces and add to a big jar.

Mash fish into a slurry with a potato masher or mortar or your hands (if the last, rubber gloves are recommned).

Smash a whole bunch of peeled garlic cloves by pressing under the blade of a wide knife or something. Add to jar.

Grate or peel a lemon and add lemon peel to jar.

Add a lot of crushed peppercorns, a couple of bay leaves, a cup of salt, and enough water to jar to cover fish completely. Mix well.

Cover tightly with lid. Let it work (don't mix it!) for 12 weeks to a year. Filter before using, if you do.

14 years ago Amos said Creation doesn't "come from" somewhere. It is what you bring into being from nothingness, an act of aware will, POW! That's where inspiration comes from. Hooking up with enough of your lost, scattered, disconnected, discombobulated, or denied bits of awareness to bring some back together again with a rush of accompanying energy, a proper Shazaam of the soul. Why go around painting yourself as another power?

Bold and forthright I would concur with Amos but leave a little room for the transmission and reception of a sixth sense. It is easy to distinguish great musical talent and performance from the tone deaf without rhythm but is hard to compare those with access to another power.
