All About Me

Saying for the day: I am a mystery to myself so I must be to others as well.

I am trying to get my blog life into some kind of order so I am trying to get as many days themed as possible. Monday is “ Leave a Comment Monday” , Tuesday is Finnish Day, Wednesday is “ Fast Forward from Ralph” and now Thursday will be “ All about me”. On Thursdays I will put meme’s or tell stories or show old pictures that tell you something about me. It will be a day for me, not deep thoughts or shallow thoughts either. Not a place for great ideas or dumb ideas. Just a place to share a bit more of me with you.

So we begin with this meme that I took from Catch’s blog. It is supposed to have one word answers but I allowed myself (hey its my blog) up to three. Where my answers are the same as Catch I colored them red.

@@@@ News from Pigeon Falls-The little town in my garage where the trains still run, dragons fly, and life goes on despite The Dream– The first of the Liar’s Club contestants for this years Pigeon Days contest went yesterday. It was Eino Maki , a potato farmer. There were ten judges. Five of them Liar’s Club members and five tourists who agreed to be judges. They were to award anywhere from one to ten points depending on the performance and story. Here is Mr. Maki’s story:
I often read the blog of some guy who calls himself Quasar9. He shares all this scientific stuff about stars and black holes. You know the stuff scientists discover looking through fancy telescopes. Well the other day he had an article that would blow your mind. It seems that according to the scientists at the Birdwall Institute there is an object out there unlike every other object discovered in space. They found this object using the new Geo Force telescope system that was built at White Sands , New Mexico. I don’t understand the technical stuff but this telescope uses some kind of filter to get some kind of data in a way never done before. So these scientists found this object in a galaxy not far from ours. What it does is repel things. Every other object in space attracts things. When something gets close to a planet or a sun their gravity pulls the object in to smash on the surface. But this object forces things away. Anything that comes near is expelled with great force out into the universe.
More than this the object seems to expel things from its surface that have the same property. As they move out into the universe any thing in their path moves out of the way. This according to the Birdwell scientists explains some of the recent universe events were suns have crashed into suns and black holes have moved to the edge of the galaxy. They were pushed.
The scary thing according to these scientists is that one of these things may already be moving toward our galaxy. It can’t be seen except in the movement of the objects it repels . But if one is headed toward us then one day in the next fifteen or twenty years we could see one of those repelled planets moving toward our earth and then its all over for us. This has me so scared that I have stopped reading Quasar9’s blog.
Now if you don’t believe me you can go to his blog and you will even find full colored pictures of the way the scientists see this object. Or you could call the scientists at Birdwell yourself.
Mr. Maki got two eight’s, six nines and two tens for an average score of nine. That’s the score the others have to beat.

Today's Link-Erratic Scribbler-A look at what purity means to him and how it drives him. Leave a Dr. John in the comment to get another chance for tomorrow's drawing.

This is tomorrows prize or choose one of the doors.

Today I spent the morning calling. I contacted Walgreen to see when my scooter was coming. I called the tub company to see when the tub was coming. I called a handyman to install our deck and a plummer to install the tub.
Then I watched my soaps.
In the afternoon Betty and I worked in the basement of the new house. We got rid of more junk. Put aside some stuff to try to sell on E-Bay. Put some stuff to give away on freecycle. Got two phone calls. Both the tub and the scooter are coming tomorrow and the plumber is going to come and look. Well I need a breathing treatment.

PS, I just sent you an email at the scglobal address. It just occurred to me that it may be your UP one.

Basically, there is a reception at Richesons Monday night. Terry said to come.

Hey Dr. John!
Loved Mr. Maki's story, lol. Pretty good, I can see how he won!

I agree with the consensus that learning more about Dr. John helps us to understand the science behind astro and quantum physics but most importantly the purpose of life.

(I have no idea what I'm talking about.)

Good idea- it's fun to learn more about fellow bloggers. Maybe you should start a Mr. Linky deal with it.
