Unlittering is a good, universalizable value -- imagine if lots of people left public spaces just a little cleaner than they found them!

What a good meeting with the clean-up man Chris.  I do that on the sidewalk, in the street, and in the alley by my house, but after reading that, I'm going to try that elsewhere.

This morning a man was at the busstop waiting like me. While I was reading, he picked up all the cigarette butts and candy wrappers from the ground and put them in the dustbin. When he saw me watching what he did he started to talk to me. When I asked about him he told me that he was an engineer from Mumbai who had recently arrived here. His wife had taught him (and their children) to clean up when he had a little time left. So he was happily cleaning up, knowing that the neighborhood would profit from it, he would feel useful and his wife would smile on him. I loved that meeting!

Hot oal meal (with dried cranberries and hickory nuts added) and an orange (half). No more o.j. Too much sugar. Coffee, of course--black.  Gee, it's Saturday already. Promises to be a nice weekend, weatherwise, but it's foggy and gloomy at the moment. Anyway, stay positive.

That dog amazes me.  I wonder how quickly it learned that.

I share your opinion, Spud. The erection of churches, etc., reminds me of the saying, "Fools and their money are soon parted."

It's finally warmed up--relatively speaking. I got out for a nice walk yesterday, with more today. Enjoy your lives, everyone.

I prefer natural scenery to anything man-made.  

I've never seen a car that I thought was beautiful, but they are impressive for their usefulness.

I'm not impressed by most buildings, including cathedrals.  When I see edifices erected by slave labor or religiously indoctrinated people, any beauty I see, or amazement I experience is overwhelmed by my sadness for the lives wasted, and disgust at those that demanded they be wasted.

The man-made things that impress me are the things that are useful.  The more useful, the more impressive.  I love technology.  

But, I don't want technology all the time.  Conversing with like-minded people is greatly to be desired, and relaxing in my garden or a forest is needed often.

I am drinking coffee right now and enjoying the company of this group.

Sounds good, Randall!

Looking through the itinerary of my upcoming Danube River trip, I see that most tours are of churches and castles, including the "Sound of Music" fairyland. Not for me. I will avoid the tours and see the sites and sounds on my own--cities and countryside--off the beaten paths.
