Planting a tree is profound, imho. [In reply to] Can't Post


I love that you can watch it grow and thrive. I'm always amazed at how hardy and lovely trees are. I swear, I can hear their whispers sometimes ;)

Have a great time, m'dear!

bit of a trial [In reply to] Can't Post

had to have the old one taken off because there was a cavity under. That was dealt with . . . in about an hour. Then the sweet assistant spent an hour crafting me a temporary crown, which didn't fit; she then made another one, and while it fit better it was really still too high, but I was exhausted by then and so was she, so I told myself and her it would be okay. Went home, was starving (it was 1:30 by then) and had some soup & a piece of toast and . . . the temporary crown went to pieces! Back to the dentist, where they put on an ugly steel temporary crown instead. You can't really see it and so far it's stayed put but I am eating on the other side of my mouth . . .

I am a dreamer of words, of written words. I think I am reading; a word stops me. I leave the page. The syllables of the words begin to move around Ö The words take on other meanings as if they had the right to be young.

teeth [In reply to] Can't Post

One of the many things I am grateful to the Lord and my parents and forebears for is good teeth, Haven't been to a dentist in...well, just last Sunday, but he is the choir director of my church. Heart

We are the fighting Uruk-Hai! We slew the great warrior! Well, yeah, first he killed a bunch of us and another whole lot of Mauhķr's lads, and we had to shoot enough arrows into him to drop a MŻmak. But we got him!

*hands cover mouth* oh geez [In reply to] Can't Post

It was bad enough to have to go through the procedure in the first place... but the complications and anxiety (not even to mention the discomfort) is just awful. *warm hug* I'm sorry... I hope this next step does the job right and you can enjoy a normal meal soon.

Wanna see New Zealand join the space race? [In reply to] Can't Post

Our first rocket to reach orbit was launched yesterday. Go here to watch the video and fast-forward to 17 minutes in:

https://www.facebook.com/...os/2000574863488986/

Rocket Lab is focusing on small rockets with commercial payloads - and boy does it look tiny compared to the rockets we're used to seeing. Laugh

My favourite bit is the view of Mahia Peninsula from high altitude. Smile

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

Yeah! Wasn't that cool, [In reply to] Can't Post

watching Mahia and the rest of Earth from farther and farther away? I watched the scrapped test the day before and had to miss the launch yesterday, but it was still thrilling to see the video. I clapped and cheered just the same.

Was that you at the back of the room, Ataahua? I remember you were going to try out for Rocket Lab. Wink Come on, let's do this, ladies! It's just rocket science not Prime Minister!

*wild applause!!!* OH WOW! [In reply to] Can't Post

I was trying SO HARD not to have the MTV Rocket Music play my head!

This is SO COOL! I couldn't get your link to work on my ancient computer, but I did get to it here: Auckland Launch

I can imagine the hassle of directing the flights around the international airport while they did the deed.

The sky was so incredibly blue that changed over to totally black... Fabulous! I loved that one point when the contrail squiggled around so it looked like a dragon/worm ;)

Congratulations NZ! That was a BLAST! :D

Well, [In reply to] Can't Post

while mission control was in Auckland the launch itself was half-way down the North Island's east coast, on Mahia Peninsula outside of Gisborne. The site was chosen in part because of the lack of planes in the airspace.

Another link for Rocket Lab launch yesterday. [In reply to] Can't Post

Here's the YouTube page for it if Facebook isn't someone's thing (like me) Blush. Isn't that just so weird that a private rocket - with satellites on board - which are now in orbit above Earth - has a YouTube page that I can share with you?! What a world: I watched the first manned landing on the moon on our tv; my grandfather got a home movie camera in the 1940's; my great grandfather was proud to have one of the early Model T cars. Now I get emails from NASA when the ISS is passing over New Zealand when we can see it. AND the Prime Minister of New Zealand is having a baby - AND her partner is going to stay home and take care of that baby.

What an amazingly fabulous few days. This stuff just blows me away, kids. Laugh
Have a nice day! Smile
