    Cats: Threading their way into our lives.

    As a kid i read a book about a prim gentleman housecat who, after attending to his morning duties, would settle in a particular sunny windowsill to "read the news". Don't remember the name of the book, though it may have been "Cat", but i still assume this disposition and intent about any cat gazing at the outside from a secure perch.

    Was it on JetBlue? Last time I flew from Minneapolis to Boston it was on JetBlue. After years of Delta and SunCountry JetBlue felt like 1st class. Nobody next to me aaaannd like pre '90s leg room!

    My sister is "kind of a big deal" in the Pioneer Valley organic farming community, and periodically gives my Dad seeds or starts of this and that. Dad, proud of his daughter, will plant whatever she gives him in apparently random, often unseemly, or otherwise inappropriate (due to light or soil requirement) places. So a few years ago he placed a tomato start along his front walk and by the end of summer he had an 8' cherry tomato tree rising up between his rhododendrons and the juniper hedge. Dad loved it, and since then has nursed the volunteer sprouts that come up each year. I just shake my head disapprovingly, and tsk tsk about his "front yard vegetable garden".

    Life will find a way "BOSTON (WHDH) - Two green baby anacondas were recently born in an all-female exhibit at the New England Aquarium in Boston, making them “biological celebrities” due to the fact that they were created without fertilization from a male, officials said. The two-foot-long babies are a product of the unusual form of asexual reproduction called parthenogenesis or “virgin birth” in Greek, according to the aquarium."

    Happy Metric Day!

    If God had meant for us to use the metric system he would have given us ten fingers and ten toes!

    Avengers Endgame- SPOILERS II

    Thats a big unanswered question. I think all of the snap victims are either legit dead, or, best case, transported to the soul realm in some sort of unconscious limbo. Peter Parker describes a near instant dying/reawakening experience. I think if Strange were "alive" in any sense that allowed him to view happenings during the 5 year span, he would also have been able to interact with our heroes during that time through astral projection from his past or future self. Fair, therefore, to assume actual death during the gap.
