Avatar: The Last Airbender

A daily episode of Aang, Katara, and Sokka, makes for a good bed time experience. I adore it. On Nickelodeon.

Fica na porta

Boundaries can be physical, or they can be the kind that become neurons in the brain controlling the future.

I loved the only grandpa I knew, who wasn't really my grandpa. I miss him. He loved me.

Real need vs. taking advantage

"First, when others are looking to us for help, we can notice the manner in which they are asking. I've noticed that those who are in real need are very different than those who are trying to take advantage of us. Those who are trying to take advantage of us have a hard time completely masking their true feelings and motives. You may notice an unnaturally saccharine niceness and flattery, or an underlying bossiness, impatience and aggression. Those who are truly in need are often very sincere in their gratitude afterwards, but those who are taking advantage often have a hard time hiding their gloating, and they often boast about it to others." - DH

Who let you inside my head?

"Don't rush to the rescue. In other words, we don't have to fight stupidity, irresponsibility, incompetence and insanity whenever and wherever we see it." - A wise person

White winters

by T
Living in the warm valley (OK, maybe not so warm in the last few days) makes one focus on clear skies, green trees, and dry spells. But, as the picture above shows, it does snow in AZ. A few thousand feet above sea level qualifies as "high country". Go there if you want to see white.

Liquid lakes on Titan

Titan, Saturn's moon.
The Cassini flyby of July 22, 2006, confirmed the existence of lakes of liquid methane on Saturn's moon Titan. Radar imaging data from the flyby, published this week in the journal Nature, provide convincing evidence for large bodies of liquid.
This image, used on the journal's cover, gives a taste of what Cassini saw. Intensity in this colorized image is proportional to how much radar brightness is returned, or more specifically, the logarithm of the radar backscatter cross-section. The colors are not a representation of what the human eye would see.

"I miss 2006..."

... she said upon awakening. The other said "7 is really only a number. Nothing changed" For those who do not take well to change, this particular time of the year isn't necessarily exciting. So, here's to a smooth transition, or the continuation of a well established path.
