So far, I'd say Boerne's been lucky.  No fire here, yet.  It's a tinderbox, though.  Anything could set one off.

Hang in there, Steph. They still keep saying 30% contained. I have a fantasy that this will continue for weeks, 30% contained. I'd be climbing a wall. How do you even sleep?

Ding ding ding! All fans of TMBG receive Instafriend status. Who else do you listen to?

Although I'm just a dumb ass oil patch truck driver (I haul oil drilling rigs), science has fasinated me all my life.  When I was 7 years old, I met the man who was to become Canada's longest serving Prime Minister, at the Saskatchewan legislature buildings, in Regina (Regina is the capital of the province of Saskatchewan).  I don't really remember much about meeting Trudeau (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pierre_Trudeau), but I do remember my father pointing out the fossils embedded in the sandstone blocks that the legislature buildings were made of, and being very fascinated with these extinct critters.

In high school, one of my teachers sent me to work as a lab assistant with his ex prof., at Agriculture Canada's Regina Research station.  I loved it, and wanted to become a biologist.  Unfortunately, The school I was in was so bad academically (I pass all my classes stoned, drunk or asleep!), that I would have to do an extra couple of years of school just to get into university! As my father refused to support me, unless I became his apprentice (or rather his "whipping boy"), and I was fighting for social assistance just to stay in school, I finally gave up, and joined the army.

I always wanted to go back to school, and up-grade to enter university, but earning enough money to eat and pay the bills took precedent. I did get significant educational up-grading in the 1980s, thanks to the Communist Party of Canada, but that was law, not biology, and after working in a war zone in Nicaragua (in 1988), I couldn't work in an office any more.

Now I drive truck, make tools, and read books by scientists.

Anytime!  Thanks for posting the donation information too.  It's hard to respond to tragedies but by being able to contribute and/or physically do something really helps people feel not quite so helpless in tough situations.

Thanks. I switched.  I am getting Certificates in Database Developer and Microsoft Office.  I feel most comfortable in Librarianship and I am trying to find a job in that field.

My school had very little visible damage and that is why a school is moving in with us.  Irene was barely noticable in my area.  Nothing like a little earthquake and hurricane to stir things  up tho.

Hi Steph, how are things going? I have been busy moving a lot of school furniture after our earthquake.

Thanks, Steph. We've almost finished getting back to normal after Irene. I only have one more lesson to do in the course, and the final.

been a fan for many, many years! i think a lot of atheists are because they see all the questions we've always had figured out in the story lines.

It is so nice to be part of a global community of atheists :-)

That's kind of you to say - I'm enjoying it too!  I'm sure we'll bump into each other, in fact I look forward to it!
