Yesterday we explored the universe and saw how vast it is. Today we go beyond our vision to the sub atomic...

Click on atomic to see the latest in neotronics! This technology is growing fast by 2012 it looks like the silicon wafer will be obsolete.

Once again we see that change is the only constant!

My grandpa use to say son, don't fuss when the wind is blowing dust in you face. It will change like the second hand on a clock!

Have you ever stopped to think about just how small we are in the grand scheme of creation!

Our finite minds have trouble thinking on this level of infinity.

The red dot in the center is the nearest known star; Proxima Centauri is 4.22 light years away.

A light year is defined as the distance that a photon would travel, in free space and infinitely distant from any gravitational or magnetic fields, in one Julian year (365.25 days of 86,400 seconds each). Since the speed of light in a vacuum is exactly 299,792,458 m/s (670,616,629 mph) by the definition of meter, one light year is exactly equal to 9,460,730,472,580,800 m (5,878,625,373,184 mi).

The most distant space probe, Voyager 1, was 13 light hours (only 1.5 × 10-3 light years) away from Earth in September 2004. It took Voyager 27 years to cover that distance.

Are you still with me? By comparisom we are but grainss of sand on the shore of time!
The center of our galaxy, the Milky Way, is about 28,000 light years away. The Galaxy is about 100,000 light years across.

We have learned so much to no so little! The big bang yap, Genesis 1-3 Then God said let their be light! We tend to forget that this was light on our small planet earth.

Genesis 1-1-2 In the beginning,when God created the heavens and the earth, the earth was a formless wastelandd, and darkness covered the abyss, while a mighty wind swept over the waters.

Sounds like a science fiction story! Well this is what some want you to believe! Our freedom of thought and speech is Ken to our God given freedomm of thought and look where it has gottenn us!

Are we close to choking on our on freedom? Why is the government and its courts succumbing to the whims of the minority?

Who gave our government the right to say, you can't pray, you can't have religious siembles on government propity? Have we forgotten who the government is?

How far must we back slide before realizingg WE ARE THE GOVERNMENTT!

Yes you have your right and lives have been given to protect that right but where is it written that you right can be forced on the majority of the people?

I for one, i'm sick of seeing people through dirt at the moral majority! Yes you have your right but don't try to force your rights on those who don't agree with you.

Those who blow them selvess up have their right too! However blowing others up with them is not their right! We don't beliefe in a God that would condone this! There lies our differences and these differences have kept us at war from the beggingg of community!

Time has a tendencye to let us forget, that we in America are misfits and castaways yet the mightiest nation the world has ever known has emerged from our forced beginnings! Morality has been an important part of our history from the beginning. Now we hear our founding fathers didn't intend it to be this way! Give me a break!

Geese, just think when I sat down to post this morning I had nothing to say!

Thought for the day, John 14, 6-7, Jesus told him: "I am the way and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the father but through me. If you relay knew me, you would know my Father also
From this point on you know him; you have seen him,"

This is for all those living and the south and dreaming of snow! My wife is still saying we're going to get some this year! I have been trying to get her to go to a doctor! LOL!

I agree it's beautiful but living in Chicago most of my life, I had my fill! To me it wasn't fun worrying over getting to work. No work to pay and the bill collectors never cared how much it snowed.

I never thought about the WEALTHY do they worry about things like that? Parable so, but about not making more money that day! :-)

Thought for the day, chestnuts roasting on an open fire hum... That's all I remember of that song!

As the year is drawing to a close, I am thinking of some of the things I have done this year. Places I have been,metropolis KY. Fantastic McDonald. The kids played in their indoor Jim for over an hour and also at the Welcome center they had a wonderful play area for the kids.

Paducah KY. Old town was a cite to see. Built right on the river. The day we were there they were Haveing a city fest. Hundreds of Harley riders were in town. I have never seen that many bikes in one place.

Your going to love this, we visited old friends in a small town north west of Nashvill Ten.. And neither one of us remember the name of the town. All I can tell you is they have a lovely place way back in the woods. It was great to see them we spent many a weekend together in Chicago.

I maintained the grounds at the lake. Quite a job, it took twelve hours every week to keep the grass cut. My ML. Passed and I spent a lot of time at the lake trying to keep the place up. We bought a new lawn tractor to cut grass with for the new season. This should cut the up keep in half.

I got involved with the grounds keepers at Church. Spending one day a week cutting and cleaning the grounds. We have twenty acres to keep up and it is a job for about six men. We are currently in a fun raiser to build a new Church. That is a post in the making.

A first for me, I cleaned out my flower garden on Christmas eve. It was worm and I just wanted to get out of the house. I am ready to plant for the new season. I would like to get something growing year round. Another I would like to project!

numerous family problems that some how become my problem! But I want to end this on an upbeat note so I am not getting into that.

I am looking forward to the new year and especial to the new golf season. My game was not that hot all year so I'm looking for a better year.

Well let me quit rambling and close with a joke...

A gorgeous young redhead goes into the doctor's office and; said that her body hurt wherever she touched it. "Impossible!" says the doctor. "Show me."
The redhead took her finger, pushed on her left breast
and screamed, then she pushed her elbow and screamed in even more. She pushed her knee and screamed; likewise she pushed her ankle and screamed. Everywhere she touched made her scream. The doctor said, "You're not really a redhead, are you? "Well, no" she said, "I'm actually a blonde." "I thought so," the doctor said. "Your finger is broken."

Thought for the day, Darn I hurt all over and don't have a broken finger!

For those who have any money left or those who haven't maxed out their credit cards, today is the BIG Day After Christmas SALE!

I asked my wife if she was going shopping today and I got a look that could kill! I left her alone the rest of the day! All she did tell me we would be having left overs the rest of the week! With the big eaters we have around I sort of dout that.

We had a first this year, ham and smoked turkey equal portions were eaten. Half of each is gone! If I charged by the pound I wood have made a nice take! LOL! My grandson did good though he eat every where he went he believes in equal rights! :-)

All in all we had a great day. The kids rode their bikes all day in the house! It rained all day! When they went to bed they wanted the bikes where they could see them. Needless to say they loved their bikes...

Their sister stayed in a room by herself...

Buddy just wanted to no when are they going home?...

I promised to take down our Christmas rain deer today. I don't no why she wanted them down so quick?...

Thought for the day, it's not what you did or didn't get but the joy of family that

My granddaughter came in from Chicago yesterday and were worn out. It's a long drive even if you like driving. The weather was good so no ice or snow to contend with.

Last night the house was full of laughter from them and some of their friends that stopped by to see them. We let M open her Christmas presents and she has Moore in Chicago. She made out good! My credit card company is smiling! LOL! She got a MP3 Player 512mb, CD/DVD/VHS player, Brats Big Jeep and camping clothing, close, shoes candy, CDs... Santa was good! Grandpa is in the poor house!

There's this blonde out for a walk. She comes to a river and sees another blonde on the opposite bank. "Yoo-Hoo!" she shouts, "How can I get to the other side?"
The second blonde looks up the river then down the river and shouts back, "You ARE on the other side."

Sometimes this is how I feel at the creek! I am on the wrong side of the river. It's like getting up on the wrong side of the bed. I thank you no what I mean. Don't speak TO me I'll BITE YOU HEAD OFF. What a way to start the day.

We all need one of those big red push bottoms(button :-)) from Staples. First thing in the morning you push the button and get an attitude adjustment! Now you can start the day with a smile instead of growling at ever thing that moves.

OR YOU Can start the day by saying thank you Lord for the gift of another day! All I am or well ever be I place in YOUR hands to guide me this day! Give me an attitude of gratuity to accept the things this day that I can't change and trust that it's your Will not my own!

Thought for the day, life is Moore than you or me so open your heart to all the possibilities!

Tense day around the crek yesterday! We had to take my wife's dog to the vet. He was passing quite a bit of blood. Not nice to talk about but he was in pretty bad shape. Rex is about 13 years old and as most pets, my wife has him spoiled rotten. We waited all day for word abut him.

I had to take M to the dentist so I was gone most of the afternoon. M has braces and has to get adjusted every month. On the way back I got a couple of pics. to share with you... Covered bridge

I have bee wanting to get a pic of this tree for a lone time, Look at the roots on this bugger!

Thought for the day, My wife is happy Rex will be alright!

Thought for the day, No one said a word about mom and dad but I could feel their presence!

Good morning, this is for all my CATlovers! Oldie but goodie!...

A newly discovered chapter in the Book of Genesis has
provided the answer to "Where do pets come from?"
Adam said, "Lord, when I was in the garden, you walked with
me every day. Now I do not see you anymore. I am lonesome here
and it is difficult for me to remember how much you love me."
And God said, "No problem! I will create a companion for you
that will be with you forever and who will be a reflection of my
love for you, so that you will love me even when you cannot see me.
Regardless of how selfish or childish or unlovable you may be, this new
companion will accept you as you are & will love you as I do, in spite
of yourself."
And God created a new animal to be a companion for Adam. And
it was a good animal. And God was pleased. And the new animal was
pleased to be with Adam and he wagged his tail. And Adam said, "Lord, I
have already named all the animals in the Kingdom and I cannot
think of a name for this new animal."
And God said, "No problem. Because I have created this new
animal to be a reflection of my love for you, his name will be a
reflection of my own name, "and you will call him DOG."
And Dog lived with Adam and was a companion to him and loved
him.And Adam was comforted. And God was pleased. And Dog was
content and wagged his tail.
After a while, it came to pass that Adam's guardian angel
came to the Lord and said, "Lord, Adam has become filled with pride.
He struts and preens like peacock and he believes he is worthy of
Dog has indeed taught him that he is loved, but perhaps too well."
And God said, "No problem! I will create for him a companion
who will be with him forever and who will see him as he is. The
companion Will remind him of his limitations, so he will know that he is
not always worthy of adoration."
And God created CAT to be a companion to Adam.
And Cat would not obey Adam.
And when Adam gazed into Cat's eyes, he was reminded that he
was not the supreme being. And Adam learned humility.
And God was pleased.
And Adam was greatly improved.
And Dog was happy.
And the cat didn't give a shit one way or the other.

Thought for the day, heaven is not a place but an aceptance!

By THOMAS WAGNER, Associated Press Writer 1 hour, 12 minutes ago

LONDON - Ancient tools found in Britain show that humans lived in northern Europe 200,000 years earlier than previously thought, at a time when the climate was warm enough for lions, elephants and saber tooth tigers to also roam what is now England.

Scientists said Wednesday that 32 black flint artifacts, found in river sediments in Pakefield in eastern England, date back 700,000 years and represent the earliest unequivocal evidence of human presence north of the Alps.

Scientists had long held that humans had not migrated north from the relatively warm climates of the Mediterranean region until half a million years ago.

"The discovery that early humans could have existed this far north this long ago was startling," said Prof. Chris Stringer, a paleontologist at the Natural History Museum, one of four British scientists involved in the study who announced the finding at a news conference in London. Their discovery is detailed in the scientific journal Nature.

In a commentary in Nature, Wil Roebroeks of Leiden University in The Netherlands said the evidence of human activity at Pakefield was "rock solid."

Roebroeks, who was not involved in the study, said it showed that "early humans were evidently roaming the banks of these rivers ... much earlier than hitherto thought for this part of Europe."

But another outside expert called for caution.

"One always has to be skeptical, given that previous claims of early human presence in northern Europe have had problems with the date or authenticity of the artifacts found. If indeed subsequent findings support this discovery, it would be very exciting and would change our ideas about the adaptability of early humans," Alison Brooks, an anthropologist at George Washington University in Washington, D.C., said in an interview.

Stringer said now scientists can search for human remains, and perhaps find humans arrived in the region even earlier than 700,000 years ago.

"We have a whole new area of research opening up to us," he said.

Prof. Jim Rose of the University of London, another researcher involved in the study, said that 700,000 years ago, England was still connected the European mainland and enjoyed relatively short periods of balmy weather between the time that massive glaciers swept through the area, freezing and reforming the landscapes.

During such thaws, he said, early humans would have been able to migrate to England from the Mediterranean and enjoy mild winters, flat landscapes and major rivers.

rhinoceros, elephants, saber tooth tigers, lions, hippopotamus and bears lived in the area at the time. The scientists said they don't know whether the humans used the discovered sharp-edged tools to kill animals for food, or merely to scavenge from carcasses that predators left behind.

The artifacts suggest that the early humans did not colonize northern areas of Europe, but merely expanded their migratory patterns there when the weather permitted, the scientists said.

Pakefield, a coastal village 120 miles (190 kilometers) northeast of London, is one of the few areas where glaciers preserved, rather than destroyed, the sediment that contained ancient artifacts, Rose said. Coastal erosion is now opening up cliffs around Pakefield, exposing fossils and artifacts.

Before that discovery the earliest unambiguous traces of human beings in Europe north of the Alps were dated to about 500,000 years ago, and included flint artifacts, bones of mammals and even some human remains that were discovered in Bosgrove on the southern coast of England.

The earliest traces of human presence in southern Europe are at least 800,000 years old and include materials that were discovered in Atapuerca, Spain.

Have you ever thought about how all this fits into the garden of Eden?

Is our idea of God and time wrong?

Is it possible that our ancestors came from another glalixe?

Have some of our specie traveled dimensionally!

A very self-important college freshman at a recent USC
football game, took it upon himself to explain to a
senior citizen sitting next to him why it was
impossible for the older generation to understand his
own. "You grew up in a different, actually almost
primitive, world," the student said loud enough for
the whole crowd to hear. "We young people today grew
up with television, jet planes, space travel, man
walking on the moon, our spaceships have visited
Mars... We even have nuclear energy, electric and
hydrogen cars, computers with light-speed processing
..... and uh."

Taking advantage of a pause for breath in the
student's litany, the "wizened" one said, "You're
right, Son. We didn't have those things when we were we invented arrogant little
shit head!! Now.... what are you doing for the next

I love senior citizens

Thought for the day, some times you just havt to speak up!

Long story but worth the read!!!!

Subject: The Folded Napkin, A Truckers Story

I try not to be biased, but I had my doubts about hiring Stevie. His
placement counselor assured me that he would be a good, reliable busboy.
But I had never had a mentally handicapped employee and wasn't sure I wanted one. I wasn't sure how my customers would react to Stevie. He was short, a little dumpy with the smooth facial features and thick-tongued speech of Downs Syndrome. I wasn't worried about most of my trucker customers because truckers don't generally care who buses tables as long as the meatloaf platter is good and the pies are homemade. The four-wheeler drivers were the ones who concerned me; the mouthy college kids traveling to school; the yuppie snobs who secretly polish their silverware with their napkins for fear of catching some dreaded "truck stop germ" the pairs of white-shirted business men on expense accounts who think every truck stop waitress wants to be flirted with I knew those people would be uncomfortable around Stevie so I closely watched him for the first few weeks.

I shouldn't have worried. After the first week, Stevie had my staff wrapped around his stubby little finger, and within a month my truck regulars had adopted him as their official truck stop mascot. After that, I really didn't care what the rest of the customers thought of him. He was like a 21-year-old in blue jeans and Nikes, eager to laugh and eager to please, but fierce in his attention to his duties. Every salt and pepper shaker was exactly in its place, not a bread crumb or coffee spill was visible when Stevie got done with the table. Our only problem was persuading him to wait to clean a table until after the customers were finished. He would hover in the background, shifting his weight from one foot to the other, scanning the dining room until a table was empty. Then he would scurry to the empty table and carefully bus dishes and glasses onto his cart and meticulously wipe the table up with a practiced flourish of his rag. If he thought a customer was watching, his brow would pucker with added concentration. He took pride in doing his job exactly right, and you had to love how hard he tried to please each and every person he met.

Over time, we learned that he lived with his mother, a widow who was disabled after repeated surgeries for cancer. They lived on their Social Security benefits in public housing two miles from the truck stop. Their social worker, who stopped to check on him every so often, admitted they had fallen between the cracks. Money was tight, and what I paid him was probably the difference between them being able to live together and Stevie being sent to a group home.

That's why the restaurant was a gloomy place that morning last August, the first morning in three years that Stevie missed work. He was at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester getting a new valve or something put in his heart. His social worker said that people with Downs Syndrome often have heart problems at an early age so this wasn't unexpected, and there was a good chance he would come through the surgery in good shape and be back at work in a few months. A ripple of excitement ran through the staff later that morning when word came that he was out of surgery, in recovery, and doing fine. Frannie, the head waitress, let out a war hoop and did a little dance in the aisle when she heard the good news. Belle Ringer, one of our regular trucker customers, stared at the sight of this 50-year-old grandmother of four doing a victory shimmy beside his table Frannie blushed, smoothed her apron and shot Belle Ringer a withering look. He grinned. "OK, Frannie, what was that all about?" he asked. "We just got word that Stevie is out of surgery and going to be okay." "I was wondering where he was. I had a new joke to tell him. What was the surgery about?" Frannie quickly told Belle Ringer and the other two drivers sitting at his booth about Stevie's surgery, then sighed: "Yeah, I'm glad he is going to be OK," she said. "But I don't know how he and his Mom are going to handle all the bills. From what I hear, they're barely getting by as it is." Belle Ringer nodded thoughtfully, and Frannie hurried off to wait on the rest of her tables.

Since I hadn't had time to round up a busboy to replace Stevie and really didn't want to replace him, the girls were busing their own tables that day until we decided what to do. After the morning rush, Frannie walked into my office. She had a couple of paper napkins in her hand and a funny look on her face. "What's up?" I asked. "I didn't get that table where Belle Ringer and his friends were sitting cleared off after they left, and Pony Pete and Tony Tipper were sitting there when I got back to clean it off," she said. "This was folded and tucked under a coffee cup." She handed the napkin to me, and three $20 bills fell onto my desk when I opened it. On the outside, in big, bold letters, was printed "Something For Stevie". "Pony Pete asked me what that was all about," she said, "so I told him about Stevie and his Mom and everything, and Pete looked at Tony and Tony lookedat Pete, and they ended up giving me this." She handed me another paper napkin that had "Something For Stevie" scrawled on its outside. Two $50 bills were tucked within its folds. Frannie looked at me with wet, shiny eyes, shook her head and said simply: "truckers."

That was three months ago. Today is Thanksgiving, the first day Stevie is supposed to be back to work. His placement worker said he's been counting the days until the doctor said he could work, and it didn't matter at all that it was a holiday. He called 10 times in the past week, making sure we knew he was coming, fearful that we had forgotten him or that his job was in jeopardy. I arranged to have his mother bring him to work. I then met them in the parking lot and invited them both to celebrate his day back. Stevie was thinner and paler, but couldn't stop grinning as he pushed through the doors and headed for the back room where his apron and busing cart were waiting. "Hold up there, Stevie, not so fast," I said. I took him and his mother by their arms. "Work can wait for a minute. To celebrate your coming back, breakfast for you and your mother is on me!" I led them toward a large corner booth at the rear of the room. I could feel and hear the rest of the staff following behind as we marched through the dining room.

Glancing over my shoulder, I saw booth after booth of grinning truckers empty and join the procession. We stopped in front of the big table. Its surface was covered with coffee cups, saucers and dinner plates, all sitting slightly crooked on dozens of folded paper napkins. First thing you have to do, Stevie, is clean up this mess," I said. I tried to sound stern. Stevie looked at me, and then at his mother, then pulled out one of the napkins. It had "Something for Stevie" printed on the outside. As he picked it up, two $10 bills fell onto the table. Stevie stared at the money, then at all the napkins peeking from beneath the tableware, each with his name printed or scrawled on it. I turned to his mother. "There's more than $10,000 in cash and checks on that table, all from truckers and trucking companies that heard about your problems.

"Happy Thanksgiving" . . . Well, it got real noisy about that time, with everybody hollering and shouting, and there were a few tears, as well. But you know what's funny? While everybody else was busy shaking hands and hugging each other, Stevie, with a big, big smile on his face, was busy clearing all the cups and dishes from the table. Best worker I ever hired. Plant a seed and watch it grow.

At this point, you can bury this inspirational message or forward it fulfilling the need! If you shed a tear, hug yourself, because you are a compassionate person. Well.. Don't just sit there! Send this story on! Keep it going, this is a good one!

Thought for the day, Sometimes there are no words to express how you feel!

Two boys were playing football at a park in Ann Arbor, Michigan when one of the boys is suddenly attacked by a crazed Rottweiler. Thinking quickly, the other boy takes a stick and shoves it under the dogs collar, twists it, and breaks the dog's neck, thus saving his friend.

A sports reporter who was strolling by sees the incident and rushes over to interview the boy. He tells the boy, "I'll title it 'Young Wolverine Fan Saves Friend from Vicious Animal.' "

"But I'm not a Wolverine fan," the little hero replies.

"Sorry, since we're in Ann Arbor, Michigan, I just assumed you were," says the reporter and he starts writing again. He asks, "How does 'Spartan Fan Rescues Friend from Horrific Attack' sound?"

I'm not a Spartan fan either the boys says.

"Oh, I thought everyone in Michigan was either for the Wolverines or the Spartans. What team do you root for?" the reporter asks.

"I'm a Notre Dame Fighting Irish fan," the little boy replies. "They're the best."

The reporter smiles, starts a new sheet in his notebook and writes: "Little Bastard From Indiana Kills Beloved Family Pet."

Thought for the day, and they always say "LUCK of the Irish"!

A Horse In The House


(CBS) Trying to stay dry in Oklahoma isn't just the work of the Homo sapien. It has extended to the Equus caballus - also known as the horse. One family has taken its pet horse, Amy, inside the house, as CBS News This Morning's Mika Brzezinski explains.

Thirteen-year-old Amy was upset about the rainfall and high waters outdoors. So, she broke through the front door of Kelly Buckner's home to share some quality time in front of the TV.

The television actually was the idea of animal control officers. Buckner says she needed some tips on what to do with a horse in the house, and the experts advised her that the boob tube would calm the horse down.

But the TV isn't the only distraction for Amy. Buckner says she looked at herself in the mirror for about three hours.

If you're wondering about hygiene, Buckner has a bucket on hand, and Amy is wearing a good old-fashioned homemade diaper.

But, the Buckners say that when the flood waters recede, there'll be no more horsing around - Amy's going back out to pasture.

I thought of this tonight as a baby opossum decided it was warmer next to the glass door than out in a tree!...

thought for the day, during the cold we have a lot of critters trying to stay warm and looking for food around the house. I bet you do too!

BERLIN (Reuters) - A German Protestant youth group has put together a 2006 calendar with 12 staged photos depicting erotic scenes from the Bible, including a bare-breasted Delilah cutting Samson's hair and a nude Eve offering an apple.

"There's a whole range of biblical scriptures simply bursting with eroticism," said Stefan Wiest, the 32-year-old photographer who took the titillating pictures.

Anne Rohmer, 21, poses on a doorstep in garters and stockings as the prostitute Rahab, who is mentioned in both New and Old Testaments. "We wanted to represent the Bible in a different way and to interest young people," she told Reuters.

"Anyway, it doesn't say anywhere in the Bible that you are forbidden to show yourself nude."

Bernd Grasser, pastor of the church in Nuremberg where the calendar is being sold, was enthusiastic about the project which is explained online at

"It's just wonderful when teenagers commit themselves with their hair and their skin to the bible," he said.
No dout this will be the hottest selling calendar in Europe and it it want take long for it to come state side! Sex sales even if it is taken from the Bible!

Thought for the day, my grandpa use to say son, never sell your principles!

Hey there those are two nice bobbies...

What a lead in, you can tell I don't have much to say today. I have been busy unloading some of the junk I had stored on my putter. Last night I tried to use word and it said I was out of memory! I collect to much stuff, and then just sit on it! I have not cleaned out my e-mail in heck I don't remember the last time I did!

Any way I burned some CD's, some floppy's and printed some stuff that I parable will never use. :-) Now I am wandering what will be the first thing I want and can't find!

Blonde LOGIC
Two blondes living in Oklahoma were sitting on a bench
talking... and one blonde says to the other, "Which do you
think is farther away..........Florida or the moon?"
The other blonde turns and says "Helloooooooooo, can you see Florida...?????"

Thought for the day, my grandpa use to say son, always keep a clean house, you never no when company may drop in!

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. - Tiger Woods won the PGA Tour player of the year award Tuesday for the seventh time in his nine full seasons, the final prize in a year that featured two major championships among his six tour titles.

It was the fifth time Woods has swept the three major awards — the Jack Nicklaus Trophy as player of the year, the Arnold Palmer Award for leading the money list and the Byron Nelson Award for having the lowest scoring average.

"It's not about winning player of the year awards," Woods said at the Target World Challenge. "It's about winning tournaments that allow you to get these awards."

Ihaven'tt said any thing about golf in a while and thought you might find this newsworthye. Tiger hasstruggledd all year yet came out on top. Money leader and player of the year. What can you say when you see the top players falling by the wayside! Milkison, Sing, Eles and Goosen could not keep oace with him!

We have to face it, at the present he is the MAN!

Thought for the day, has money changed Tiger? I don't think so!

I received this today and it made me think of what we as a whole are doing to ourselves!
Granted there are those with medical conditions who can't control their condition.

This percentage is small compared to those who just will not put forth the effort! The medical cost along in America is topping 300 hundred billion mark!

Little known fact, Waite Watchers Int. Inc net profit is approaching two hundred thousand this year. Not picking on them but using them as an example. Then theirs Jennie, LA weight Loss, Atkins, South Beach the list goes on and on! We are spending millions to of set our poor choices and bad habit's!

This is what we're doing to each other and it doesn't stop there look at our pets...

For those who may be interest here is a good self help sight and it's free!

Some where we must draw the line and reconer our discipline!

Thought for the day, my grandpa use to say son, only eat when you're Hungary! Darn I seem to be Hungary all the time!

rain day along the creek. Can't complain we need it bad! I did get out for a while to wallow World. I could not get over them creating a whole new department for the MP3 craze griping the world. Young and old have fallen for this tiny box that can hole thousands of song, pictures, movies, and some you can make a phone call on or get e-mail, or IM!

All this lead me too think of where we've come from...
The first radio Guglielmo Marconi: radio starSpecial Feature by Roger Bridgman: December 2001 Physics Web.The author Roger Bridgman writes on science and technology from the UK. He was formerly Curator of Communications at the Science Museum, London.

A lack of formal education, high-powered family connections and an unstoppable will to succeed helped Guglielmo Marconi to transmit the first radio signal across the Atlantic and launch the wireless-communications industry.

There cannot be many people who screwed up at school, failed to get into university, and then went on to win a Nobel Prize for Physics. But at least one did, and with good reason: he made radio happen. In a few years of manic activity, Guglielmo Marconi managed to transform an obscure piece of maths into a social upheaval that makes the '' phenomenon look about as radical as a new bike for your postman.
Marconi's 1909 Nobel prize seems all the more extraordinary when you consider that - unlike the physicist he shared it with, Ferdinand Braun - Marconi was not, by his own admission, any kind of scientist, or even much of an inventor. He did not really make any fundamental discoveries, and radio was mostly a matter of assembling parts created by other people. But the vision needed to see the possibilities of a new era of communication, and the unstoppable will to pursue it, were all his own. No intellectual, Marconi earned his Nobel prize the hard way by dragging a great chunk of physics out of the lab and holding it up for the world to see, approve and, more importantly, buy.
It was all a long time ago. In fact it is 100 years since Marconi proved, contrary to informed opinion at the time, that wireless waves could cross the Atlantic. Since then, radio has undergone a bumpy ride in the fashion stakes. Some 40 years ago, it was seen as ancient history and distinctly uncool, despite the invention of the transistor. Computers were the upcoming thing for ambitious scientists and engineers. Digital chips were hip; coils and capacitors were not.
But radio never went away, and today it is chic and centre stage again. It even gets called "wireless" by a generation that no longer associates the word with a wooden box that took ages to warm up. Bluetooth wireless technology may one day allow every conceivable electronic gadget to talk effortlessly to every other, while digital transmission is revolutionized television and will do the same for sound as soon as someone markets a receiver that does not require a second mortgage.

But the radio application that's had more impact than any other is, of course, the mobile phone. And, in a satisfying display of closure, this three-way marriage of radio, computers and the fixed phone network has enabled millions of texting teenagers to put life back into the concept that started it all: wireless telegraphy. Making waves just how did "wireless" and "telegraphy" get together? Like a horseless carriage, a wireless telegraph proposes to do away with the very thing that makes the technology work. Pursuing an idea like this demands the ability to enter a new world, not just optimize an old one. The Moravian-born US economist Joseph Schumpeter reserved the term "entrepreneur" for people with this gift. He saw them as prime movers of economic change, though their motives were not entirely economic. What drives the true entrepreneur is their dream of a personal kingdom, the spirit of conquest, the sheer joy of achievement. Guglielmo Marconi fits Schumpeter's model down to the last detail and he changed the world economy every bit as much as that model predicts.

So much to cover, I didn't even touch on Ham and Cb radio, surround sound five six and seven! Last pic. Car stereo with out the car!

Thought for the day, again we are reminded the only constant is change!
