First Snow

Looks like winter is here. Night before last we got about a half inch of snow. In a brief walk I tried to find some tracks. Nothing but squirrels…. Crick, Sean, and Nye will be leaving today. The Mommy was stimulated by their presence which was good. The food Crick prepared with some help from Kate was all good, including the two large turkey breasts. Crick had planned on taking the Mom to church on Sunday but Mom suddenly announced she didn’t want to go. As I was in the bathroom finishing the brushing of my teeth I heard the conversation which was over quickly. Crick said she can visit Nick on Sunday now. This is all for the best… Looked at a few of the videos on brain structure that I’ve had for a long time. These are conducted by a charming and humble guy named Walid Aziz. My goal is to get better picture of hippocampus and the so-called temporal horns. That’s it for now.

Is it that mind-blowing? Depends on where you are I guess. Here in western Maine it’s a pretty normal spring. Lotsa cool rainy days with some sun, that kinda thing.

The flies (black) are out in force now. It’s hard to just stand still without a swarm building up around you. But yesterday I went for a quick walk through the woods around our property across the street and managed to avoid being bitten. That’s because I kept going.

Oh, I haven’t been doing much blogging of late, or even worse, visited anyone else’s blog. I’ve been distracted by a lot of other things. But I did change the heading picture — got rid of those porcupines and added my old Spring has Sprung header, with a new title about what Spring has Sprung means heah in Maine.

Oh, and I just added a neat colored twitter badge. But is twitter starting to loose its popularity now, just as I get interested in it?

Yesterday I found a great tutorial on the brain, the human brain. (I’m trying to find out how it works before I lose too many more neurons.) It’s a great informal lecture series in about 50 or so YouTubes by a guy by the name of Walid Aziz. And there is this wonderful psychedelic music in the background that really helps. It’s amazing in fact. I did the first 19 of them, not that I absorbed it all.

Today we’re having another Growth Group meeting over at the Bridgton library. The purpose is to plan how to increase attendance and church membership at the First Universalist Church of Norway Maine of which Cynthia and I are members. One thing we want to do is think of another name for Growth Group because it’s too easily slurred into Grope Group, and that’s NOT what it is.

Other than that I still enjoy singing in Heather Pierson’s choir at the church, enjoy the challenge of being the church treasurer, still have difficulties sleeping, still watching videos on the Science Network, but not doing as much blogging or reading other people’s blogs as much as I used to. Can’t do everything.

Maybe I’m going through a phase.
