Rosetta Stone is the only way to learn a foreign language. Someone who didn't do well with high school Spanish, but learnt amazing stuff using Rosetta Stone, like how to ask where the bathroom is, told me so  angel

I dislike Rosetta Stone (at least the Japanese one).  It's great for memory and pronunciation, but it just has too little information for the gigantic price it has.

I canned 17 quarts of dill pickles today. Actually some of the jars were litres, some Imperial quarts, some US quarts. I've been doing this for quite a number of years.

Some garlic. Not a lot - just enough for some flavour. And no extra heat added. My two oldest grandchildren, now 12 and 11, will eat only my pickles (and I think, their mother's, since she learned from me  Smiley). They know the difference between "store bought" and the real thing!

When I remember bits of dreams I've had the night before I sometimes recall sights, sounds, touching sensations, and things I've said... but never smells. Why not, I wonder?  I want to have a stinky dream some time, just so I can say I did.

Have you acquired the knowledge thus far that there are people who suffer from conditions beyond their control, and are naturally in that state? My aunty, for instance, happens to be a person of that nature. She is a crane operator that has bad joints and a bad spine from operating the crane but you probably lack empathy for that case also. I do not fall under this category as I am 6'5, 300lbs and every day I make an effort to stimulate myofibrillar hypertrophy by inducing skeletal muscle mircotrauma. I would be most enthusiastic about you saying such a thing of unkind nature to my aunty in the vicinity of my physical presence. This has a low probability of coming to pass however as you are courageous only when your words first travel through an electronic medium to a public display forum. My belief is not strong that you would vocalise these insults when there is little spatial distance between yourself and that person. That is my thought process. I would like to know yours. Oh I do offer my apologies as you lack a frontal lobe with the necessary neurons and synapses which are prerequisites for a sentient being. I myself, however, would be most happy to book you in for a three day cruise to travel to my location and visualise yourself making such taunts to a person of my acquaintance with the removal of an electronic discussion medium.

And I am certain some poor soul will actually pay for that option. 

Adding the hybrid option does little for acceleration and fuel economy.  Edmunds.com said that one has to keep the car for 62 years to recoup the additional cost of the hybrid option.

BMW is releasing the all-electric i3 for the US market in 2014.

"The reason why clichés are so satisfying is because the truth never loses its residual force."

I just saw this sig and I'll get back to it later. In short, cliches are stagnating and do not pierce into what is actually in "reality".

Life is utterly strange, and the problem of using cliches on life is that they are superficial in describing the very peculiarities of such. For example the cliche of time healing all wounds, well not exactly. That cliche only articulates a superficiality about time, healing, and wounds but it does nothing but go beyond this. This is not the final word on time insofar as healing, but what else lies behind this cliche on our first discovery of our wounds and how they are healed? The cliche, thus, tells us nothing. And does this not hinge on a priori knowledge of the exact qualities of time itself?

Cliches serve no other purpose but to detriment our experiences and whittle down life itself into such "maxims".

And that is why I dislike cliches...

Achronos, posts by you are few and far between but you need to believe in yourself. Don't get me wrong, what the future holds no one knows, but needless to say, you need to make the best of it. You've been through thick and thin, and come back to reality (ie. PA), and now have hope for a bright future. Time will fly by now that you are on top of the world and having the time of your life, but just remember that all good things must come to an end.

I probably watch more TV today than I ever have. Not sure whether it's stupider. My childhood was filled with Happy Days and Gilligan's Island, so...

One of the "Happiest Days" of my life was meeting the ENTIRE cast of "Gilligan's Island"! Cool

When they had their 2nd wave of popularity back in the early '80s they did some personal appearances as a group. I actually got to talk to Mary Ann and Gilligan up close!  Squee! Grin

I decided to try out a frat party on a Saturday night before church, and have come to conclude that frat parties kind of suck. At least Natty Light does.
Lol first parties are h0mo

Rode about 50 miles today which doesn't feel all that much on the plain roads of the Midwest . Also heard Yo-Yoma albeit from some distance .

I probably watch more TV today than I ever have. Not sure whether it's stupider. My childhood was filled with Happy Days and Gilligan's Island, so...

One of the "Happiest Days" of my life was meeting the ENTIRE cast of "Gilligan's Island"! Cool

When they had their 2nd wave of popularity back in the early '80s they did some personal appearances as a group. I actually got to talk to Mary Ann and Gilligan up close!  Squee! Grin

If you have Me TV, they'll be on for an hour every night at 8 PM (Eastern time) starting Sept. 2.  I didn't check the Pacific time schedule.

Love this:

"The facts of life do not penetrate to the sphere in which our beliefs are cherished; they did not engender those beliefs, and they are powerless to destroy them; they can inflict on them continual blows of contradiction and disproof without weakening them; and an avalanche of miseries and maladies succeeding one another without interruption in the bosom of a family will not make it lose faith in either the clemency of its God or the capacity of its physician." - Proust in Swann's Way.

Tramping around the zoo is a great workout, but dadgum if it doesn't cost as much as a personal trainer. Undecided

I would have rented you my sister for 1/2 the price.  (Hmmm....why does that sound, uh,.....off?)  Let me explain.  She's a former zoo keeper and finagles herself into free admission to zoos all over the world on the strength of that and her gift of the gab.  Mind you, you would have been there 3 times as long, though.   Grin

I love the zoo! I only don't like the way my ankles hurt after all that walking. Smiley (And some smells like elephants. Eeeew.)

Coming literally eye to eye with a tiger was totally worth it. Grin
