(and other necessary creatures)

needy creatures?
I'm the needy one - emotionally, hence all the cats and animals in my life. No human can stand me! :-D
I've seen worse :)

...I'm considering inviting him to the spare room with a shower suit in my new flat so I can provide more inspiration...
I’m trying to decide whether the mental images triggered by this quote are merely a product of my vivid imagination or indeed aligned with your intentions in writing it. Anyway, I like them.

Several days of bitter cold over the holiday and now a few days of rain.

So have been cleaning the house and thinking about the simple things in life.

From Smokey and me to the Forum. (A few of our favorites objects...)  :)

You and Smokey share the passion for balls of yarn :-) The burgundy carnations are beautiful.

From us for both of you:

1. A paperboard box, in which you can sit content.
2. Cosma / favourite treats
3. Old rat from Ikea / the only toy of which we never get bored
4. Ursula Le Guin's Earthsea Quartet / important book and a card from the author
5. A coconut my uncle brought for me from his travels when I was at most 4
6. The Division Bells / important music album
7. M'aamul / my favourite treat :-)
8. Flowers, not necessarily dead :-D

Life wouldn't be the same without them.

This time of year, the American football season is peaking and you wind up watching *all* weekend.

And then the commercials - here is a great one, featuring Aaron Rodgers, the superstar quarterback for the Green Bay Packers (Wisconsin). Finishing a pre-game warm-up in rival Chicago Bears' stadium, he dons Bose noise-cancelling headphones and...

Well you can watch the video.  Good for quarterbacks, chess players, quant finance forums... : D


I have my Sennheisers right here and it's time for some of the new Motown/Philadelphia Soul. 

A bit of soul sweetness in this hard old world  ; )

I saw this advertised

newton silk scarf
The Newton Silk Scarf created from the text, diagrams and annotations from Isaac Newton’s personal copy of the Principia in which he outlines his universal law of gravitation. Made in Britain. Pictured in the Wren Library, Trinity College, Cambridge.
ppauper, i saw that they were roughing you up a bit today and so here is a counterpoint to that. ; )

My Newton scarf arrived in the mail today and it is wonderful.

Would not have known about it if you hadn't posted that image and link on this thread a few weeks back.  So, thank you very much!

People, it's like Alice in Wonderland in here, just try to remember that. ;)

And now I am going back on sabbatical!

I'd at least add a strand of pearls and a feathered hat! 

Getting ready for a little skiing here soon - have fun while I am gone.

(But not too much fun!) :D

S = 1 - 1 + 1 -1 + 1 .... (forever)

Find S
1/2
indeed, IF S EXISTS THEN
S-1 = -1 +1 -1 +1 .... (forever) =-S
so 2S=1
