    booklover, tazered cat made me laugh so much. Ice flowers are interesting; causing ozone depletion -have to learn more about that. Thanks for all your sharing, everyone. Nemo is snowing softly here, so far only a couple of inches accumulation. We had to cancel some plans till next week, when it's expected to get up to 54°. What a change. Did you all read that the expected El Nino didn't appear, and they're calling the long in between La Nada. Do I hear a faint echoing hollow laugh?

    Thanks for the ice flowers, Patricia!

  • Idaho Spud

    Thanks for the Ice Flowers Patricia.  Never heard of them before.  Interesting and beautiful. 

  • Ian Mason

    Just had a lovely afternoon with my daughter. Lunch then Puccini's "Tosca" at the concert hall in Aarhus. Was even allowed to see a phone-photo of The Boyfriend. He wants to celebrate Valentine's Day by seeing the new Die Hard film. He might be all right, this boy :D

    My daughter Astrid

  • Ian Mason

    "Astrid" is an old-nordic name. Original meaning is a little unclear but possibly "divinely beautiful" or "greatly loved".

  • Joan Denoo

    Ian, your daughter is beautiful! You must be very proud of her. May your relationship be rich with communication, deep and loving with emphasis on flourishing for both of you. 

  • Joan Denoo

    Melinda, your photo is so touching; their affection for each other is clear. 

  • Plinius

    A daughter to be proud of, congrats, Ian!

  • Plinius

    Would love to join, Napoleon, but my French is at the level of "Fromage chevre, s'il vous plait..." I understand far too little to join.

  • Steph S.

    oh hahaha so funny booklover - I laughing so hard at the faucet kitty.

  • Steph S.

    Ian - what a beautiful picture of your daughter!

  • Steph S.

    Patricia I love the beautiful Ice Flowers and booklover I love the horse picture - I love horses.

    Playing catch up.

    Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend.

    Just had to add another funny picture.

  • Idaho Spud

    Ohh, poor fawcet kitty. :(

  • Ian Mason

    Well, that's one way of keeping your cool as a dog.

    Yes, I think my daughter has inherited some of the best genes from both her parents. She's doing well at uni too - top marks in her two last exams, on "Human resources - challenges and possibilities" and is getting on well in her internship. Looks and brains :)

  • Idaho Spud

    My, what a big tongue that black doggie has!  Not as big as Odie's, but there are those that think that Odie's not real.

  • Idaho Spud

  • Ian Mason

    Just as long as the rooster doesn't chicken out.

  • Ian Mason

  • Joan Denoo

    Spud! I love the postman story!  Thanks!

  • Joan Denoo

    Ian, that poster tells the value the way it needs to be told! If only victims would be hitched up to this philosophy, they have a chance to get out of being downtrodden. Thanks!

  • Idaho Spud

    Just heard of "love locks", but I think this woman got it right.  They look like graffiti to me:

    YEEEEE-HAWWWWW!  Made my day!

    (I just hope they don't "elect" Cardinal Out-Law to take his place...)

    Maybe they will elect..........

    BASEMENT CAT!!!

  • sk8eycat

    Flying Atheist...that video is SO bizarre!  I love it!!

  • The Flying Atheist

    Melinda, try reloading the page and see if the video plays.  Works for me when there are black boxes.  There must be a problem with A/N.   

  • Joan Denoo

    I take back every nasty, awful thing I ever said about sarcasm and ridicule. In this case it is not only necessary it is not sufficient. Those two blinkin' nuns only look more ridiculous. And that poor sweet old man at the microphone, I wonder who/what provided the audio?
    The Flying Atheist, good job!
  • Joan Denoo

    Pope retired because he hasn't the wisdom or the courage to do the right thing.  We need a confession of the truth. Nothing else will do. 

  • Loren Miller

    Okay, how about something POSITIVE ... like a piece by Eric Whitacre, multitracked appropriately, by a boy and a girl ... with a blurb at the end promoting their work and Eric's coming Virtual Choir IV!

  • The Flying Atheist

    Good stuff, Loren!  I enjoyed that very much.  Thanks for sharing. 

  • John Lynch

    Great video. Never heard of this duo.

  • Grinning Cat

    A Cat-lick religion would be a great improvement!

    BYE!  I'll be back Shatterday!

  • Joan Denoo

    Loren, a lovely melody with peaceful harmonies. I like this very much.
  • Loren Miller

    Joan, that is part of the magic which is the music of Eric Whitacre ... and there is LOTS more where that came from!

  • Ruth Anthony-Gardner

    Thanks for sharing the lovely picture of Astrid, Ian. It’s great to have a daughter with looks and brains. Napoleon, your ‘flashey thing’ drives me crazy. Can’t look at it. Love the fan-loving dogs and the puppy tongue, Steph. That Ergonomic fwacet cat is toooo funny, booklover. Thanks.

    I was a bit disoriented without access to all of you for a whole day. Looking at the news, I had to keep reminding myself that I wouldn’t be able to share something that struck me a especially interesting. *sigh* Glad to be reconnected.

  • Ian Mason

    Great videos! In my mind I see a world of difference between the friendly postal worker who honestly likes people and the authoritarian Pope obsessed with sin.

  • Joan Denoo

    Eric Whitacre's Virtual Choir - 'Lux Aurumque'

    Loren, this is lovely music. Thank you so much. Joan

  • Joan Denoo

    Ian, I like your contrast between pope and postman.
  • Ian Mason

    I don't know what it is but it's really happy about something :)

  • Ian Mason

    Happy Darwin Day.

  • Idaho Spud

    Carl and Melinda, I like your posts about the pope having no god given strength, and I love Dawkins protesting the pope.

    Ian, I like your comparison of the postal worker and the pope, and love Darwin's great quote about wonderful endless forms evolving.  First time I've seen it.

  • Chris Dodds

  • Steph S.

    So now I am even further behind.

    But trying to get caught up as I can.

    Hope everyone has a great Darwin's Day celebration.

    So - how do you celebrate the day?

  • Steph S.

    Ok - went back and I just love all the posts and pictures. Ruth your napkin cat, Ian your happy animal : ), Grinning cat and the cat lick, booklover and the lolcat, Loren "A boy and a girl", and I hope I didn't miss anyone. Love everything here and so glad to reconnected to you all. Missed you all.

  • Steph S.

    Oh Chris - love the Darwin Day poster!

    Celebrate!!
