Riff-Raff (or whatever that means)

– I’m thankful for: gettin home okay. Roads were kinda bad. Took it slow. Coulda taken it faster; but why?
– I’m thankful for: Got to use a micrometer today!! Some other guy’s parts were being done wrong while I was check for bad parts; I caught it when I was about to start making some of my own, & I looked over at his & they looked a little-off. When I started my own, I noticed some of the bits were wrong, so we had to go get them fixed before we could even start to make anything more! Felt almost like throwing up my hands, but it was toward the end of the night, so I just went with it; it’s not like things don’t go wrong sometimes – you just sidestep it and find a way to get more product going.
– I’m thankful for: S-N-O-W! (“snow;” “genius.”)
– I’m thankful for: I moved a bottle from under the kitchen table. Little spiders scurry in my wrath!!!!
– I’m thankful for: got up early & got some cleaning done.
– I’m thankful for: No-work at work which gave me time to think-up how to do-worse than a pun!! (now if I could only rememmer it!) :-}

– “still thinking about” has been temporarily bleep’d til I can put it somewhere more “mature,” (or whatever that word is). In its space, read the edit at the bottom.

– “Common Core = “complexity” http://www.npr.org/blogs/ed/2014/11/13/359331057/common-core-reading-the-struggle-over-struggle I’ve figured it out! Common Core is just one in a series of steps to get to “Teacher says 1+1=59, then (“duh”) 1+1=59!!!” Seriously. Seriously.
(Yes I have to say that twice; cuz some people will not take to “seriously” just once.)
– Remembering a recent video seen… a new dad tries to get his baby baby to call him his “favorite,” but the baby keeps saying, “Mommy.” On the surface this is cute-as-a-bug, but I’m sure that somewhere far far away, there is 90-some-percent of the Universe crying-out in agony.

– from Science Daily…

“Is it possible to change the amount of information the brain can store? Maybe, according to a new international study. The research has identified a molecule that puts a brake on brain processing and when removed, brain function and memory recall is improved.” !

Edit: Woke-up too-dang-early and had to lay there and think. So, as usual, I started thinking about the troubles of childhood &, as recently, about forgiveness… and I had an interesting thought that let a lot of emotions dissolve well; as-well-as an A+++ idea for a discussion-point on circumcision!!
