    I just turned 63. Last year I had to renew my drivers license, and they are forcing the Real ID crap on us here in NM. I walked in with all of the stuff they wanted, and the little girl...

    David L @56 A friend at work has no middle name, so she always puts an X in the blank. That satisfies most systems and is accurate since "X" is usually used to mark a form. My brother and I...

    The series name will probably stay, The Laundry Files, since they occur in the LaundryVerse. After a time, there will be more novels without Bob than with. That's because we want to read stories set in the LaundryVerse, Bob is...

    _Moz_ @1125 Ken Burns did an episode discussing the Shakers. Sister Mildred Barker https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=euPJzOjffps They sought perfection in all aspects of their life. They basically invented industrial farming in America. We would not have developed the vast power of farming...

    Thanks for all the links and comments about "soul". I've been generating notes the past couple of weeks after I realized that the movie, What Dreams May Come, is actually Horror. That fits perfectly with Frank's comment: Of course, I...

    Greg, thanks for the links. We'll know in a few years if they install the first system. Once it's up and running, and covered on The Nightly Business Report, I will lose interest. Once a technology is established, I move...

    That is a good example of how useful this stuff is for Story. I could never make this stuff up on my own. "There was that kind of negative spin"? See what you did there. You pulled part of a...

    Thanks, the wiki is a good start. I was not aware that there was that kind of negative spin being generated. That comes in handy for Story. As I've said above I have "mad Google skills" but unless I'm in...

    Mark, Hans Rosling would be considered "Left Wing". You really need to watch the videos before you start ranting. He discusses the birth rates reducing, that is part of his examples as to why we won't have more than 11...

    People clearly have not watched the Factfulness link I posted above. This section is the main point about reaching 11 billion people. Watch this part at least, so that people stop saying there is over population and we need a...

    HA! Elderly Cynic @408, with his wiki link is what I am talking about. Pumpkins are orange skinned, and larger than your head. In many cases twice the size of your head. They are used to carve Jack-o-lanterns for Halloween....

    BTW, try growing onions and garlic mixed in among all your plants. The big bulb onions, I forget the variety. The flowers that come up from the onion especially seem to control the aphids. My mom would plant them everywhere,...

    I googled "peeling a pumpkin" and now understand. HA! Never knew that was possible. For decades I would roast, then scoop everything out. So pumpkin has always been mashed, never solid enough for chips, etc... That's why I usually keep...

    The easy way to cook pumpkin is slice it in half, and place on cookie sheet cut side down. Bake at 350 for about 45 minutes, that depends on size so experiment. In the link they talk about scooping out...

    That's strange, artists don't waste their money on things either, so why should they be upset. Materials are for their art. We are talking regular people, working, living their lives, doing occasional vacations, then retiring with their saved money and...
