I'm everyone's son Caputh. Will you share water with us? We can all walk through fields of surreal azure plains of multi colored flowers that bloom everywhere, their intoxicating smell penetrating through your every pore of desire. It's Utopia Man, really! Trust me. :wink: :lol:

I talked to her last night (thank you Skype). She's having a great time....no shit! She's going to try out for the Quiddish team. I thought she was pulling my leg at first, then I checked it out...Have to admit it's just dada enough for me to like the idea.

Was brave and foolish enough to check out the 20 minute music special Kate Bush made in my favourite place to be except for my bed, De Efteling.
I can't stand Kate Bush, never could. Reminds me of a very bad era in my life. Even besides that, she squeezes her voice too much.

I wondered who that rather large child with the moustache who has been tapping at my door every day for the last week was. You should have said,

Ever read Stranger in a Strange Land? Ever had someone at an airport "give" you a flower, then demand a "donation"? What're ya gonna do?... Smoke some pot, maybe a pint too, laugh about it, it's Utopia Man. What does anyone want with more of that Cosmic Debri? :lol:

Well I just saw the remains of what was my favorite place in the world from childhood burn to the ground. I am just sick. What little Hurricane Sandy did not destroy last winter, this fire just did. :cry:

Ha! I was tryin' to think of that word. (grock) All I could think of is "grope" which is a whole 'nother story!

Glad someone grocked it! :wink:

It's from "Stranger in a Strange Land," a sci-fi book about a surviving child of a Mars expedition who was brought up by Martians...and later returned to Earth...where he took on some Earthly ways, and those around him (more so for close one such as his girlfriend), began taking on Martian ways. To grock something is to fully know what it is, to know it as though you had all the experiences of it, as though you had been it...it's one step more than understanding something.

To have grocked it is to have been there, done that, only the experiences of these are all real for you because you grocked it to. In your memory. I never quite figured out how that one worked without a time travel memory. :?
We are all one and our memories too. Something like that. :wink:

Interesting home project "happened to me today"...

Hooking up a portable (7000w), generator as the power is known to go out for days out here on the outskirts of town. We get good serious hurricanes living on the coast, and when the power goes down they fix the more populated areas first b4 they get to us fringe folks.

Not as hard as I expected...total cost $2400. A licensed electrician is required to break into the incoming power, so I can't do it all myself, but that's the only hitch.

Step 1 is to select ten circuits I want to have energized from the generator....

...for that it's necessasary for a pretty good aerobic workout: Identifing which breakers go to the different house circuits...for that I pulled out my trusty boom box, starting at the second floor, plugging it in to the outlets and running down to the basement and throwing breakers until the radio stops....

...then back up the stairs to the second floor to move the radio to the next desired outlet...

...by the time you get through the house for most outlets and lights, you have run up and down a million stairs, (took 2 hours to do all).

So ten pounds lighter I had a list of breakers, and could select my ten:

Furnace
Sump circuit 1
Sump circuit for backup pump / cellar ceiling lights.
Refrigerator / living room tv
Porch computer / radio / stereo
Living room desk outlets / cable modem (phone, tv, Internet) / washing machine (not dryer)
Bedroom TV / downstairs bathroom light / fan
Bedroom bed table
Outside flood lights for driveway / doorway / generator area
Kitchen outlets (three out of four)

You can get switches that do other numbers of circuits, but with ten I think I should be stylin', even in one of those nasty week-long-outage mega ice / snow storms :)

____________________________

Of course if grid is down, cable tv/Internet will likely be down, and cable line repair gets second priority to electric...so to cover that I can get a hot spot from my job...if the towers are active, then I can stay on line :)

That's how ya do it :)

My joints themselves held up, fortunately. Right knee seems to be cured. But unfortunately it does look like the muscles in my lower left leg are still having trouble.
