ah thats completely the other side of the country. But, maybe you can help me here actually. Do you know a website of ppl living there that offer concert tickets? I need to buy tickets for a sold out concert that takes place in Bern and another day in Zurich :D

So is it like Bern, where you live? environment/looks wise?

It is similar to Bern yes, probably also pretty similar to where JM lives.

In extremely clear air it looks like this:

I have a little rant -- probably not the most popular position, but we spend millions and millions of dollars trying to figure out how to make women who can't have babies have babies when there are already too many people in the world. Now I just read an article about how having an artificial pancreas can help women with diabetes better cope with a pregnancy. I mean, I guess some women are overcome with the idea that they can't get pregnant or can't manitain a pregnancy until term. And, the science is interesting, but it seems a flawed bit of prioritizing or maybe it's market driven science. And please do not get me started on the tax breaks given to families with 15 children. :rolleyes:

From T.S. Eliot Four Quartets, Part I: http://www.tristan.icom43.net/quartets/norton.html

Time present and time past
Are both perhaps present in time future,
And time future contained in time past.
If all time is eternally present
All time is unredeemable.
What might have been is an abstraction
Remaining a perpetual possibility
Only in a world of speculation.
What might have been and what has been
Point to one end, which is always present.
Footfalls echo in the memory
Down the passage which we did not take
Towards the door we never opened
Into the rose-garden. My words echo
Thus, in your mind.
But to what purpose
Disturbing the dust on a bowl of rose-leaves
I do not know.
Other echoes
Inhabit the garden. Shall we follow?
Quick, said the bird, find them, find them,
Round the corner. Through the first gate,
Into our first world, shall we follow
The deception of the thrush? Into our first world.
There they were, dignified, invisible,
Moving without pressure, over the dead leaves,
In the autumn heat, through the vibrant air,
And the bird called, in response to
The unheard music hidden in the shrubbery,
And the unseen eyebeam crossed, for the roses
Had the look of flowers that are looked at.
There they were as our guests, accepted and accepting.
So we moved, and they, in a formal pattern,
Along the empty alley, into the box circle,
To look down into the drained pool.
Dry the pool, dry concrete, brown edged,
And the pool was filled with water out of sunlight,
And the lotos rose, quietly, quietly,
The surface glittered out of heart of light,
And they were behind us, reflected in the pool.
Then a cloud passed, and the pool was empty.
Go, said the bird, for the leaves were full of children,
Hidden excitedly, containing laughter.
Go, go, go, said the bird: human kind
Cannot bear very much reality.
Time past and time future
What might have been and what has been
Point to one end, which is always present.

Time has wrought a wondrous wound
You aren't what you used to be, I'm not what I used to be.

Questing hearts met as though they had never been apart.
You got lost, I got lost.
Two sets of footprints on one path.

Don't know where to go from here
We set off, but there was no path.
What my quest is I know not
With each breath our hearts weave dreams.

I'm reading a great book about the U.S. 1789 - 1815.

Obviously there's quite a bit about Hamilton in it. As you know it took 36 ballots to elect Jefferson over Aaron Burr. Hamilton hated Jefferson, but got along well with Burr who was Princeton educated and debonaire. However, he thought Burr was disasterous for the country, so he engaged in a frantic letter writing campaign for Jefferson. I thought you would like this quote.

"It is a matter of character. Burr has none; Jefferson has at least pretentions of character." :lol: :lol:

There's a lot about climate and how Europeans thought that climate was determinative of character and development and progress and just about everything apparently. But one of the observations made me laugh.
"The same amount of rain falls in Europe and America. But in America, it falls twice as fast." :lol:

Europeans were quite alarmed by American weather. :awww: :p

But one of the observations made me laugh.
"The same amount of rain falls in Europe and America. But in America, it falls twice as fast." :lol:

Europeans were quite alarmed by American weather. :awww: :p

The Europeans thought that clearing the woods and cultivating the land would improve climate and also allow for arts and development of culture in general. They pictured to landscape some kind of garden Eden, I think.
Regarding the rain, I suppose what was meant is that the rain events are more intense but shorter. hence the same amount of water falls in half the time span, ergo twice as fast. alternatively; it could mean that the rain drops where perceived as being bigger.

When old quotes sound silly it is a strong indication that we understand them wrongly.

I'm reading a great book about the U.S. 1789 - 1815.

Obviously there's quite a bit about Hamilton in it. As you know it took 36 ballots to elect Jefferson over Aaron Burr. Hamilton hated Jefferson, but got along well with Burr who was Princeton educated and debonaire. However, he thought Burr was disasterous for the country, so he engaged in a frantic letter writing campaign for Jefferson. I thought you would like this quote.

"It is a matter of character. Burr has none; Jefferson has at least pretentions of character." :lol: :lol:

Brilliant, just brilliant :worship: :lol: Thanks for that :hatoff: Why does the book end at 1815? The end of the Napoleonic wars?

There's a lot about climate and how Europeans thought that climate was determinative of character and development and progress and just about everything apparently. But one of the observations made me laugh.

His Macedonian troops forsaking him,

Demetrius the King (a great-souled man
he was) did not at all, so people said,
act like unto a King. For he then went
and took off the majestic dress he wore
took off the purple shoes; and hastily
slipped into plain attire, and stole away:
behaving as behaves a common player,
who, having played his part upon the stage,
changes his dress and leaves the theatre.

I knew you would love that one. :) I was saving it for your appearance. :)

1815 is perhaps arbitrary. I'm not sure. But it does fit in with the early nation forming quite well in that it was when the European powers backed off. So far we are dealing with the Jeffersonian revolution and republicanism. It's not chronological but is organized around topics.

I have a little rant -- probably not the most popular position, but we spend millions and millions of dollars trying to figure out how to make women who can't have babies have babies when there are already too many people in the world. Now I just read an article about how having an artificial pancreas can help women with diabetes better cope with a pregnancy. I mean, I guess some women are overcome with the idea that they can't get pregnant or can't manitain a pregnancy until term. And, the science is interesting, but it seems a flawed bit of prioritizing or maybe it's market driven science. And please do not get me started on the tax breaks given to families with 15 children. :rolleyes:
I do think that science goes too far but my cousin for example got diabetes while being pregnant and because of the sudden medication she needed to take, her daughter is severely handicapped. I'd applaud methods to help pregnant women cope with diabetes because the results can be horrible :shrug:
Her second child is adopted (from Southern India).

Did you read Wilander's latest rant on Murray?
Wilander made his feelings known on his blog, albeit in a somewhat rambling fashion: 'Andy Murray..grow up. Mom, lay down the rules,' he wrote.
'Stop swearing at yourself and all of us. When will chair umpire wake up and explain to Andy this is not "cool" and you better stop or be punished. We don't need this...so put a smile on your face and suck it up.'

I don't necessarily disgree with Mats on some of that though.

What really pisses me off about Murray in the final was not that he had a bad day on the court, that happens, but his whole attitude out there was relentlessly negative - he never really got fired up and determined at all. Djokovic fed off that so much - Djokovic got pretty tight at points, especially in that third set, but looking down at Murray ranting and swearing and whining and looking miserable must have really lifted him in crucial moments. He really needs to tone that shit down. Even if you're not feeling it, put the game face on and bluff. He has got much better at doing that but in this final it was right back to the bad old Mopey Murray days.

Djokovic's parents made themselves targets a few years ago but they've mostly avoided controversy since (apart from the dad and his battles with Serbian tennis federation).

That was the same with Marat btw, the opponent saw he was throwing rackets and getting down on himself, of course it lifts the opponent. And all this negativity directed at himself, it's destructive.

What does it mean when new posts are misunderstood? huh?

I did almost one year of research on the year without sommer 1816 and also on the origin of climate science, reading lots of old papers also from the USA regarding climate. One very important finding that my philosophy Prof emphasized multiple times is that, if old texts sound silly, often we interpret them wrongly. Because the researcher of that time were just as smart as we are today and often, todays viewpoints are not that much superor as we would like to believe.

I did almost one year of research on the year without sommer 1816 and also on the origin of climate science, reading lots of old papers also from the USA regarding climate. One very important finding that my philosophy Prof emphasized multiple times is that, if old texts sound silly, often we interpret them wrongly. Because the researcher of that time were just as smart as we are today and often, todays viewpoints are not that much superor as we would like to believe.

Senna signs for Lotus Renault

VALENCIA, Spain — Bruno Senna, who had an unimpressive first season in Formula One with Hispania, will be a reserve driver for Lotus Renault GP this year, the team announced on Monday.

"It's a great moment for me," said the nephew of three-times Formula One world champion Ayrton Senna.

The 27-year-old also said he was excited to be in the same team colours of black and gold as his late uncle when he was with Lotus in the 1980s.

Ayrton Senna died in a crash while leading the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix. He remains the last Grand Prix driver to die at the wheel of a Formula One car.

Depends.

I could come on Sunday but it'll be just to have a meal with you guys (if that's okay with you)

Let me check for a moment how long the train takes to get me to Rotterdam and how much € it costs:
it takes about 1h 25min and it'll cost around € 15 (on Sunday).

So, money and time shouldn't be an issue.

I do think that science goes too far but my cousin for example got diabetes while being pregnant and because of the sudden medication she needed to take, her daughter is severely handicapped. I'd applaud methods to help pregnant women cope with diabetes because the results can be horrible :shrug:
Her second child is adopted (from Southern India).




"

Good point. I wasn't thinking about gestational diabetes at all. But, I think it's the individual cases which I admit can be quite heartbreaking that drive the science. When I think globally, it irritates me. When I deal with individuals, I am less of a tyrant. :p I guess living in a state (and apparently a country) that thinks bearing full litters of children is groovy and something that might even land you a television show has made me a heartless cynic.

I don't necessarily disgree with Mats on some of that though.

What really pisses me off about Murray in the final was not that he had a bad day on the court, that happens, but his whole attitude out there was relentlessly negative - he never really got fired up and determined at all. Djokovic fed off that so much - Djokovic got pretty tight at points, especially in that third set, but looking down at Murray ranting and swearing and whining and looking miserable must have really lifted him in crucial moments. He really needs to tone that shit down. Even if you're not feeling it, put the game face on and bluff. He has got much better at doing that but in this final it was right back to the bad old Mopey Murray days.

To me, Murray is in the same place others have been -- do I really want all the pressure and risk that go with being at the top of the game. Some, have opted out. But, in so many ways it's like the rest of us who have had to face growing up and the pain that entails or to remain adolescents at heart even though our hairs are gray. Although at the time growing up seems less attractive, in the long run, it makes everything easier. Murray seems to be on the cusp, but it must be so much harder for an elite athlete who has the world revolving around him. Sometimes I feel motherly toward him just wanting to give him a push, and other times, I want to shake him. :lol:

People need to leave Muzza's mum alone - I've met her and she's a really nice person, for one thing. For another, it's an individual sport. For me, parents are only fair game if they put themselves out there and say or do stuff that's controversial. Djokovic's parents made themselves targets a few years ago but they've mostly avoided controversy since (apart from the dad and his battles with Serbian tennis federation). Nadal's folks, Federer's folks, Murray's mum, other tennis parents - what exactly do they do that deserves disrespect except cheer their son on at matches sometimes?

I am not up on all things Murray, but I thought his mother was having coaching duties here recently. I'm perfectly willing to be instructed and even lecutred on the subject.

I did almost one year of research on the year without sommer 1816 and also on the origin of climate science, reading lots of old papers also from the USA regarding climate. One very important finding that my philosophy Prof emphasized multiple times is that, if old texts sound silly, often we interpret them wrongly. Because the researcher of that time were just as smart as we are today and often, todays viewpoints are not that much superor as we would like to believe. I found that to be very valuable to keep in mind as I read thru those old material.

I did not take it as a dig. I took it as you completely misunderstood my post or why I was laughing about the quote.

I will spell it out for you. I am a history nut, geek, nerd, and whatever else. Merton likes history and he likes obscure quotes. When I come across one that I think he might enjoy, I try to remember it for his enjoyment. I laughed at the quote about rain out of delight because it seemed so apt and not because it seemed silly. Because of things Merton said previously about America, I thought he would appreciate it too.

Does this clear it up?

I think the things that we grew up with as children hold a great appeal for us, and sometimes it's hard for others to have the same appreciation and enjoyment, if they didn't grow up with them.

My favorite comic books were the Classic Comics where they translated classic novels into comics. I also liked Donald Duck and the Archie comic books. Loved Archie, Betty, Veronica, and Reggie -- but I would expect others who didn't grow up with them to like them. Oh yeah. I also liked the Wonder Woman comics.

Yup, that's the one! First I saw the series on TV (in Russian) and then I read the comics in Latvian. That was before I learned English :lol:

According to this list:
Tintin around the world (http://www.asterix-obelix.nl/tintin/print.php)
it's translated into latvian.

Maybe I should get one for my nephews :) Then I can read it for myself too and see what all the fuss is about :p

Hehe, was that the Donald Duck? :scratch: Even I had those comic books as a kid which is weird of course. But we even had some Disney movies shown here. :o

I think it was around 1989-1990 or something, the Ostankino channel was airing Ducktales on Sunday afternoons, and after Ducktales finished it was Gummy Bears and then Chip and Dale Rescue Rangers... Those were my favorite cartoons as a kid! :lol: Not that I understood everything but our parents helped us with translating :lol:

Gab, the link Hilde posted says the first book was published only in 2006. I know, we're so late to everything :o

I had several heated discussions with my parents when I started reading because they didn't think that reading comics is good for a child. So, I had to prove to them that I could read properly and that I liked to read proper books (so, without any pictures in it). When they were sure that I loved "proper" books, they grudgingly let me read comic books.
I had one Donald comic book (one my sister bought me) but the rest were either French or Belgian.


I'm not sure I'll like it with the characters not having their original french names. :unsure:

I'm a bit afraid of the end result because I love the series so much.
However, Spielberg and Jackson are huge Tintin fans. Spielberg has been dreaming of making a Tintin movie since the early 80s (but the widow of Hergé was being difficult). He made the famous Indiana Jones movies, inspired by Tintin, because he didn't get the approval to make the Tintin movies.

edgar wright (who wrote shaun of the dead and hot fuzz) is doing the screenplay, so expect offbeat humour.
Here's hoping that it won't suck.

The Castafiore Emerald?
Tintin in Tibet? I adore that one. Although perhaps you'd need to buy them the classic The Blue Lotus* to understand the backstory of Tintin in Tibet.

I don't think Tintin was ever very big over here. The only Belgian we seem to have taken to is Hercule Poirot, and he's fictional and written by an Englishwoman :lol:

and annoyingly referred to as a Frenchman all the time, to his understandable despair.

TinTin was quite popular in Spain, unfortunately now it's all Pokemons and whatnots...

From the link:

They later starred in the 1987 animated television series DuckTales, in which they appeared in adventures with their great-uncle, Scrooge McDuck (Donald having enlisted in the U.S. Navy). The boys' personalities in this series were mainly based on their comic book appearances versus the theatrical shorts.

I confess I didn't know he was their great-uncle, they always called him 'Uncle Scrooge', at least in Russian. Great to clear that up for me :yeah: But actually the Gummy Bears was my very favorite cartoon, I just loved how they could drink something and jump so high :hearts: Or was it run like a wind? :scratch: I don't remember anymore, I just know I loved it :lol:
