1 - time goes by

7695 - August Behind, September Ahead.

So long, August! Hopefully September promises good things in the coming weeks ahead.



I was given revised paid links last night... maybe the mystery of the phantom July payment will be solved.



I know for sure which entry of mine has the longest ongoing comment conversation at least across time, if not in sheer numbers. An entry posted back in July of 2002 about Roanoke and the Lumbee Indians (Long before those two wiki articles) still has people dropping in now and again, more than three years later, including a couple die-hard regulars. I come up as entry #30 on a google search regarding the tribe, and I'm not sure that any of the sites before mine have an area to post personal commentary. The biggest discussion seems to be whether or not there is African American blood in the tribe as a result of escaped slaves assimilated into the group. There doesn't seem to be a clear answer, and neither side of the discussion seems to be showing signs of backing down.

That said, there are only 50 comments in that entry as of this writing... I have two or three entries that have sparked off into long comment trails of 500+, but those discussions peter out about a week or two after being posted. That's a case of seven people just talking back and forth... it turned into sort of a chat room, rather than a discussion forum near the end.

Allergy Shots today - Cute girl named Angela always sits across from me, always has a book
Angela seems nice, despite the fact that I've never talked to her.
Books I've seen her reading - Great Gatsby and A few Tony Hillermans.

Slightly Wall-eyed guy...
reminded me a little of the seedy pawnbroker in MIB

Scotto Thoughts
Random stuff bouncing off of my brain...
Manatees, Newt, Global Disasters...

Moment of Lyric: (mp3 - via) {This song made me feel really good this morning.}

Collapse )

All through the morning rain
I gaze - the sun doesn't shine -
Rainbows and waterfalls run through my mind

In the garden - I see west
Purple shower, bells and tea
Orange birds and river cousins dressed in green

Pretty music I hear - so happy
And loud - blue flower echo
From a cherry cloud

Feel sunshine sparkle pink and blue
Playgrounds will laugh
if you try to ask
Is it cool?, is it cool?
