Old guy born and raised in Iowa, now living in South-central Texas. Spent most of my life trying to figure out the meaning of life, and now that I have an answer that satisfies me, trying to get it written down before my time's up.

    He was obviously never in the Armed Forces. Your drill sergeant in boot camp tells you how to fold your towels, socks and everything else you have, and by golly, that’s how it’s done.

    There’s supposed to be an old man dressed in long robes with a long beard and sitting in the Lotus position who might know the meaning of life, but who only speaks cryptically about the truth. Had he been there, you would remember why you came, but leave no wiser than when you arrived.

    Can’t say for sure, having never seen the birds you mentioned, but is there any chance the birds you saw were Loons?

    Charlie ‘s Believe It Or Not: There is a constant solar eclipse occurring, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Somewhere in space our moon blocks visibility of the sun constantly. It’s just that it is happening in outer space, and not somewhere on Earth. That makes this wondrous stuff only visible in space. But when easily maneuverable space craft become available, expect someone to start selling rides to observe what will become the everyday miracle.

    The “c” in stalactites suggests the ceiling. The “g” in stalagmites suggests the ground.

    A tow vehicle for boats, trailers (both RV’s and working trailers), jet-skis and snowmobiles. A high clearance vehicle for poorly improved roads and trails. A cargo vehicle for moving and delivering materials from home improvement stores, including appliances, lumber, gravel, sod, roofing and other materials. My wife selected our first pickup, a 2 WD Dodge Dakota, but we have also had a Toyota Tacoma, a 4 WD Dodge Dakota, a Ford F-150, and a RAM 1500 with a 5.6 L Hemi for towing an RV trailer. I’m considering getting another, but chances are less than 50%. Trucks are very quiet and smooth driving these days. Incidentally, costs have not really gone up. Our currency has just been losing value.

    The primary goal is to exit the boat without getting hurt, and without damaging or losing any of your gear.
