Progress continues

February 25, 2010

Spent the 20th of FEB checking out the hotel I wish to use for a Tolkien Conference.  It looked doable.

Spent time on the 23rd & 24th working with my web mistress on the web site.  We may be able to go live in a week or two.

Join the 3rd Conference On Middle-earth early & often!

One way to look at it.

Men rarely (if ever) managed to dream up a god superior to themselves. Most gods have the manners and morals of a spoiled child. -Robert A. Heinlein, science-fiction author (1907-1988)

I like this.

Do not condemn the judgment of another because it differs from your own. You may both be wrong. -Dandamis, sage (4c BCE)

Adoption begins at home

February 12, 2010

I’ve been reading about all these adoptions of Haitians and, of course, adoptions of Chinese, Russian, etc.

I wonder what the effect would be if no one was allowed to adopt from outside the country until all the US orphans were adopted.

this seems somewhat reasonable at first glance.

The world isn’t flat? Darn!

In questions of science, the authority of a thousand is not worth the humble reasoning of a single individual. -Galileo Galilei, physicist and astronomer (1564-1642)

The beginning of June is accounted for.

I now know what I’ll be doing at the beginning of June. I’ve been approved to work on the June 2010 Star Trek New Voyages: Phase 2 Shoot!

It should be fun.
