YOU have to watch THIS. You will THANK ME for it.
Pretty amazing. I have over the years seen plenty of acrobatic, aerial stuff, BUT this was still pretty amazing.
I thought they were from Israel. NO. Brazil. Do not ask me how so many of them were able to come over and WHO paid for it.
Enjoy. Be amazed.

Given that I have a Google Pixel 2 I have used Google’s “Project Fi” from the get-go. It was a no-brainer for I since I do NOT have a big need for data. Has worked well for I — plus I use the built-in software SIMM.
The BIG drawback of ‘Project Fi’ was that it basically ONLY supported Google Pixel/Pixel 2 phones a couple of old Motorola phones. Well, this week they have fixed that. Interesting choices. In terms of pricing the two LG phones are much more expensive than the Pixel 2. Wow.
Well, check it out.
I, as a pet owner, fully understand and appreciate the distress of a missing pet (though I have to say that in over 40-years of owning dogs I have never had one go missing).
I have no gripes with folks putting up ‘Missing Pet‘ signs. If they think it helps, by all means. I also realize that it is cathartic.
My gripe is that they NEVER take down these signs! These days they are invariably laminated, in plastic sleeves or on thick, plastic-coated paper. These signs, nailed/stapled to trees stay on for years.
About 5-years ago a very prominent and wealthy family in town lost one of their (supposedly) trained, sled-pulling huskies. They plastered signs within a radius of 15-miles. They never found the dog and that has always bothered me. I still see these signs … 5-years later.
The two signs I show above went up a few days ago. They plastered the area around us. These two signs were about 10’ apart — set well back from the road. Very few people walk these streets. Most drive. The signs are too far to be read from a car.
These signs will stay up …
That is my issue.

This is a very serious matter to I. Which is why I wrote, extremely respectfully, to the Queen.
I now know that the letter, at a minimum, was safely (I trust) delivered to Buckingham Palace — by the trusty ‘Royal Mail’.
I know that somebody of semi-import will cast their eyes on it.
Not sure what will happen after that.
I am hoping that it will make it at least to one of the Queen’s Private Secretaries.
I am HOPING to hear back, but I am not holding my breath. If I indeed get any correspondence I will, of course, share with YOU.
Pretty prompt delivery. I mailed it around 3pm on Thursday, May 24, 2018 at the Alton Post Office.
It left Newark, NJ on Saturday, May 26, 2018. So, it missed the U.S. holiday on Monday.
So, 6-days from Alton, NH to Buckingham Palace isn’t too bad. I am cool with that — though I have to confess it was NOT cheap. I am so glad e now have e-mail and Facebook. International postal rates are a killer.
This morning on the news I heard that the FBI was reconstructing shredded documents in the Michael Cohen case. I thought I had misheard that. I rewound it and watched it again.
They were RECONSTRUCTING shredded documents.
What is the point of shredding documents if they can be put back together?
I will ask you that again. Why shred if all it does is slow down somebody from being able to access the document.
I Googled it. I was gobsmacked. They have been able to do this for years — with or without software help.
Made me laugh.
I have never owned a shredder or felt the need to shred a document. I kid you not. I must lead a sheltered life. So, I have never really worried about the ‘security’ of my old documents. Much of the time I throw my old documents away with the rest of the garbage. IF anybody wants to rummage through them … have fun. My credit card statements? So, what. People know what I buy. I do not consider it a secret. My medical records. Have fun. I don’t care.
So, this cracked me up.
Ahhhh! What a GREAT world we live in.
You need this type of, AT LEAST ‘P-5’ Security,
Micro-Cut Shredder IF you want added protection.
I saw this and couldn’t resist — though I knew that my IQ was NOWHERE close to 146. I am more in the double-digit range. I just wanted to see how difficult it was.
It is a SCAM.
It is trivial.
If you need an IQ of 146 to get 100% on this, then there must be a ton of folks who have 146+ IQs.
OK, I HAD to look it up. 146+ IQ is said to be restricted to LESS than the TOP 1% in the world. In that case this test and article is a FAKE.
I think this is way to premature and speculative — and by that I mean the ‘link to (true) intelligence‘ part. I am sure that these 150 genes are related to thinking skills, BUT I am personally not convinced that enough research has been done to establish how they relate to intelligence.
But, I wanted to make sure that you did not miss this news. Hence, this post.
Though we are now homeschooling Teischan, I like her to take the same NWEA Testing, at year end, as she would have taken at school. That way there is never any misunderstandings, with anyone, as to whether she completed the year or did the appropriate testing.
One challenge of homeschooling is finding test preparation material — especially online and with automated, self-assessment.
I stumbled upon ‘prepdog.org’ this weekend and was delighted. It has a fair amount of tests and automated scoring — PROVIDED that you use Chrome. We found that out to our costs this morning. Teischan, on a Windows 10 PC uses Internet Explorer. She was NOT getting the scores. I tried it on an Android Tablet and on one of my PCs and I would get the results, each time, with no problem. Then it dawned on me. Chrome. Downloaded and installed it, BINGO. Everything works.
So a heads up.
