Troutbend's Comments

The view is a bit surreal - no vegetation, no sign of people - makes me think Superman is going to come flying around one of those buildings.

My dad flew a small plane, and I was fine flying at about 500 ft above ground until we came upon those very tall radio towers. That 'connected' me to the ground, made me realize we were up high, and then I got the light-headed, pit of the stomach symptoms.

They built bridges instead of walls.

I thought I commented on this, but don't see it here. I googled that restaurant and saw a photo of the salad, or near enough to how you described it. When I was a kid, iceberg lettuce was the only kind we ate at home, partly because our little grocery store didn't carry the 'exotic' types like romaine. My mother had a recipe for a tossed salad of various vegetables that at that time seemed so special, called for romaine and avocados, and today it's what I consider mundane. Nice enough, but not anything to write home about..

So many years ago, but some things seem like they happened yesterday.

Winter's tough, seems there's always something to deal with. The twister thing to wring out a mop would be very important to me.

Yes, good thing it didn't happen to you - Ed might rub it in. The bank account that check is for could have $100 or less in it, and he's got his 'real' bank account somewhere else.

I never thought of cowboy caviar being sold in jars.

We already have tunnels/pipes that bring water from the supposedly wetter western slope to the eastern slope of the Rockies - built in the 1940s/50s - before Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and Phoenix grew so large and now they wish they hadn't signed away that water. Within the various states, there are projects proposed to pipe water from rural areas to cities, but the rural areas are also growing, so people are feeling the pinch.

Great last sentence, Martin.

I think you're wise to ignore the request. He'll get there anyway, but at least it won't be you helping him. Hope you're feeling better today. I was watching an animated Snow Cover in the United States map - marveling at how much winter you all have had out there, and how little here in the west.

Hope it gets better real soon. The jet stream maps show how it has consistently missed the west which is warmer than normal, then swooped down over the midwest bringing maximum winter.

I've had those 'colds' in the past where talking dried out my throat (or something) and I couldn't stop coughing. I'd be on the phone when it started, couldn't talk at all, and had to throw a magazine at someone else in the room to get their attention so they could help.

You'd think there was some value in having the shade from mature trees. It's going to look like a prison exercise area.
