BBC News - Facebook alternative Diaspora eyes launch date YES!!

Can't wait. Will certainly try it out. Interested in their privacy policy. Facebook is too big and too much into itself. If it looks good will be difficult to leave Facebook and so many new and old friends. That's the problem.

Packing up my colored pencil drawings and one watercolor for this weekend's art show.

Egg recall? Time to start thinking regionally rather than globally. And stop subsidizing factory/commercial farms. Start helping the local/family farmers. They produce better products and are true stewards of the soil.

Facebook sues Teachbook over name similarity (Telegraph) Close to sayonara, Mark. I'm getting fed up.

Mark, book IS generic. I've about had it with you. One more straw and I'm out of here.

My sister's husband is the official timer for the race. Hope some of you can see the daring drivers and cool motorcycles along the route.

On the way up.

Old-style coal plants expanding (AP)

A good reason to reduce our online labors and other activities that require electricity. Take a walk. Talk to your neighbors. How many books have you not read? Paintings you have yet to paint? There is something to be said about aspects of Pre-Edisonian life.

I'm confused. Is Vladimir Rasputin the current Russian Prime Minister?

Is it Religiment or Governigion?

In parts of out fair country religion and government are morphing into one questionable entity. I don't know if it is called Governigion or Religiment. Whatever its moniker, I think it is unconstitutional.

Humans will be extinct in 100 years says eminent scientist.

Homo sapiens sapiens will not be extinct in 100 years but their population may be much less and on a way to a more rapid evolution. The world as we know it could be much different world in a century. The banned phrase and program, "population control", is something we have to confront and begin implementing in some way or our grandchildren will live on a far different Earth. Politicians are scared to death whenever they are confronted with the population question, if the subject is "ever" brought up. Population growth is the basis of all the other problems we face and must be addressed. The population must unite and mobilize. The population is also the solution.

Nothing so refreshing as slicing open your finger on a mat cutter.

So Facebook advertisers are spending twice as much this year as last year. Aren't they wasting their money? Who actually looks at the ads? I barely have time to read a small fraction of my online social missives let alone read an advert.

7 Puppies Die after American Airlines Flight - CBS News

A lot to be said about "buying" locally. Actually, we should not be buying dogs and cats but adopting the homeless and abused animals. We may want to start asking if any animals are on the flight manifest of the aircraft we fly on next time. Then we can voice our concern about their welfare if there happens to be a delay. What are the rules for animals on delayed flights? The humans are covered. Not well, but they are covered. I can think of a lot of dogs and cats I would rather have sitting next to me on a flight than a human.
