booklover, tazered cat made me laugh so much. Ice flowers are interesting; causing ozone depletion -have to learn more about that. Thanks for all your sharing, everyone. Nemo is snowing softly here, so far only a couple of inches accumulation. We had to cancel some plans till next week, when it's expected to get up to 54°. What a change. Did you all read that the expected El Nino didn't appear, and they're calling the long in between La Nada. Do I hear a faint echoing hollow laugh?

Thanks for the ice flowers, Patricia!
Thanks for the Ice Flowers Patricia. Never heard of them before. Interesting and beautiful.
Just had a lovely afternoon with my daughter. Lunch then Puccini's "Tosca" at the concert hall in Aarhus. Was even allowed to see a phone-photo of The Boyfriend. He wants to celebrate Valentine's Day by seeing the new Die Hard film. He might be all right, this boy :D
My daughter Astrid
"Astrid" is an old-nordic name. Original meaning is a little unclear but possibly "divinely beautiful" or "greatly loved".
Ian, your daughter is beautiful! You must be very proud of her. May your relationship be rich with communication, deep and loving with emphasis on flourishing for both of you.
Melinda, your photo is so touching; their affection for each other is clear.
A daughter to be proud of, congrats, Ian!

Would love to join, Napoleon, but my French is at the level of "Fromage chevre, s'il vous plait..." I understand far too little to join.
oh hahaha so funny booklover - I laughing so hard at the faucet kitty.
Ian - what a beautiful picture of your daughter!
Patricia I love the beautiful Ice Flowers and booklover I love the horse picture - I love horses.
Playing catch up.
Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend.
Just had to add another funny picture.
Ohh, poor fawcet kitty. :(
Well, that's one way of keeping your cool as a dog.
Yes, I think my daughter has inherited some of the best genes from both her parents. She's doing well at uni too - top marks in her two last exams, on "Human resources - challenges and possibilities" and is getting on well in her internship. Looks and brains :)
My, what a big tongue that black doggie has! Not as big as Odie's, but there are those that think that Odie's not real.
Love this story of "Mike the Mailman":
Just as long as the rooster doesn't chicken out.
Spud! I love the postman story! Thanks!
Ian, that poster tells the value the way it needs to be told! If only victims would be hitched up to this philosophy, they have a chance to get out of being downtrodden. Thanks!
Just heard of "love locks", but I think this woman got it right. They look like graffiti to me:
YEEEEE-HAWWWWW! Made my day!
(I just hope they don't "elect" Cardinal Out-Law to take his place...)

Maybe they will elect..........
Flying Atheist...that video is SO bizarre! I love it!!
Melinda, try reloading the page and see if the video plays. Works for me when there are black boxes. There must be a problem with A/N.
Pope retired because he hasn't the wisdom or the courage to do the right thing. We need a confession of the truth. Nothing else will do.
Okay, how about something POSITIVE ... like a piece by Eric Whitacre, multitracked appropriately, by a boy and a girl ... with a blurb at the end promoting their work and Eric's coming Virtual Choir IV!
Good stuff, Loren! I enjoyed that very much. Thanks for sharing.
Great video. Never heard of this duo.
A Cat-lick religion would be a great improvement!

BYE! I'll be back Shatterday!
Joan, that is part of the magic which is the music of Eric Whitacre ... and there is LOTS more where that came from!
Thanks for sharing the lovely picture of Astrid, Ian. It’s great to have a daughter with looks and brains. Napoleon, your ‘flashey thing’ drives me crazy. Can’t look at it. Love the fan-loving dogs and the puppy tongue, Steph. That Ergonomic fwacet cat is toooo funny, booklover. Thanks.
I was a bit disoriented without access to all of you for a whole day. Looking at the news, I had to keep reminding myself that I wouldn’t be able to share something that struck me a especially interesting. *sigh* Glad to be reconnected.
Great videos! In my mind I see a world of difference between the friendly postal worker who honestly likes people and the authoritarian Pope obsessed with sin.
Eric Whitacre's Virtual Choir - 'Lux Aurumque'
Loren, this is lovely music. Thank you so much. Joan

I don't know what it is but it's really happy about something :)
Happy Darwin Day.
Carl and Melinda, I like your posts about the pope having no god given strength, and I love Dawkins protesting the pope.
Ian, I like your comparison of the postal worker and the pope, and love Darwin's great quote about wonderful endless forms evolving. First time I've seen it.
So now I am even further behind.
But trying to get caught up as I can.
Hope everyone has a great Darwin's Day celebration.
So - how do you celebrate the day?
Ok - went back and I just love all the posts and pictures. Ruth your napkin cat, Ian your happy animal : ), Grinning cat and the cat lick, booklover and the lolcat, Loren "A boy and a girl", and I hope I didn't miss anyone. Love everything here and so glad to reconnected to you all. Missed you all.
Oh Chris - love the Darwin Day poster!
