Tony - it sounds like you had a nice day with your family. Your son sounds really cool. : )

800! Best group around, of course. Hats off to Ruth for the initiative.

Will look out for that one, Chris. Thanks.
Chris, I'm definitely interested in the subject matter of that Oliver Sacks book. Thanks for mentioning it! I'm already looking forward to reading it.
WORSHIP ME, MORTALS!

I'll worship cats Ian. At least they're real and really cute! lol.
Lol, these are good pictures to start the day with, Melinda and Ian!

Love the lolcats Ian and Melinda.
Hope everyone is having a wonderful day.
Thank you, Steph and a happy new year to you too. Stealing the cat.
Can anyone identify the location of this lovely scene?
Thanks to Chris Breman
Oliver Sacks: What hallucination reveals about our minds
Joan, the photo is of the Plitvice Lakes in Croatia, and is listed as a World Heritage site by UNESCO.
Beautiful scene Joan! Cool you knew that Pat!
Happy New Year Cat is cute Steph.
My husband is glad the Bears won today, but wants the Packers to win because that puts the Bears in a better position? I don't get it. lol.
Pat, thanks! Oh my GOSH! These stunning photos almost seem like a fairy land. Is this the place called, "Falling Lakes?"
Joan, you're more than welcome. The Falling Lakes are in an area that borders Croatia, Bosnia, and Herzegovina. Sad to think that a place of such beauty saw so much bloodshed in the 1990's.
Actually, Melinda, I cheated. I took Joan's picture, opened it in a separate link, and then got on Google Images and posted the URL of the photo. The answer popped right up.
Thanks for the Oliver Sacks-link, Joan!
1 o'clock: I've done some shopping and now I'm going to shut ourselves in until next year. I've heard that in many countries it's not possible to buy fireworks - seems a good idea to me! Outside there are loud bangs and a smell of gunpowder, in a few hours you'll get breathing trouble. I hope the people outside are happy, and that they won't lose many fingers and eyes.

I WANT TO WISH ALL OF YOU A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR! Thanks for sharing a part of your lives with me and for providing many laughs and introspective conversations. Cheers!
See Pat, I wouldn't have thought of that, or known how to do it, so, I'm still impressed! lol.
You too Carl! I love my online friendships and the friends on here are absolutely the BEST!! I wish only terrific things for all of us in 2013! Hugs all around!~ Melinda
Happy New Year and be safe everyone!
Here's to another year of spending time with my friends.
I enjoy your company.
Happy New Year everyone. Looking forward to another turn around the Sun in your company.
Happy New Year to everyone as we take yet another lap around our insignificant star, travelling through the space-time continuum.
Happy New Year!!! I love the cats!! I am listening to My Cat(meow mix)!!
Looked in old messages: it can't be three years that I've hung around here! Thanks for sharing with me!
To all my friends who like to hang out together, my deepest desire is that you each feel great joy, and have good health, and peace even in the face of some interesting times ahead. At least we can share and learn and inspire each other to a better way of living. Even as it is interesting to be part of important change, it can be stressful, and enriching as well. My fondest regards to each of you. Joan

I love that button you posted Patricia. I agree No God Know Peace. So true.
Happy New Year 2013.
Well, another year has rolled around, and it was interesting, to say the least. Almost one year for me on the Nexus, meeting wonderful people whom I have come to cherish as members of my extended friends and family. As a species we continue to sputter forward. We are a contentious, loving, opinionated, loud, happy, sad, content, unfulfilled, artistic, kind, mean spirited, philisophical, practical, dreaming, superstitious, skeptical bunch of primates. Mostly out for ourselves, but flashes of altruism and morality do break through, giving me hope.
To all my friends here, I wish for you a Happy New Year. May you find peace, joy, and happiness, and awe in your daily lives.
My kindest regards to all-Tony
I don't want to think how many miles that comes to after seventy two years on the planet.
So you're well travelled in time and space, John.
Here I go, promoting my own stuff again ... but I thought Zack Koppelin and his fight against the teaching of creationism in New Orleans schools is very much worth your attention ... so please have a look here.
Hi Joseph! Glad you like cats! :)
Loren, you should promote your stuff here, it's always excellent!
We let our 'kids' have a New Years Eve party. Things got a little sticky. No, literally, when we got home, everything was sticky. LOL. Even the kids said it wasn't as fun to have a party when it was their home, and their responsibility! Good lesson!
Best wishes to all of my friends on here. You are such neat people and I'm very grateful to have all of you to learn from and talk with.~ Melinda
Patricia, GORGEOUS cat!!! :)
Goodness. This cat looks like a real baby in a hoody.
Good stuf, Loren. I'm still suprised that it's necessary. Then again, Danish history books are due to be changed. It's still taught as a "fact" that Columbus discovered the world was round!

Love that beautiful cat Patricia.
Ian that a good one.
Hope everyone is going well. I am trying to get over a cold. : (
love your file, delete LOL cat Steph! Hope your cold is gone soon!
Hope you get well soon Steph :(
