1 - time goes by

8079 - Welcome, 2006!


Something I post at the top of every new year, and I appreciate the words more with every additional trip around the sun.

Love is
is not rude,
it is not self seeking,
it is not easily angered,
it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil
but rejoices in truth.
It always protects,
always trusts,
always hopes,
always perseveres.

-1 Corinthians 13:5&6

Dan Turns 44 tomorrow.

I won't bother with a year in review, as there were 976 entries for 2005. ( 2004 had 716 entries, and my numbering system started in mid 2003, so if you want to know how many entries I did for earlier years, feel free to check here and add at whim.)

I'm happy to say that I've maintained at least one entry a day since 8/21/2000. It's an easier feat than it sounds... who says a man can't commit?

Light haze mixed with clouds is present in the Southern part of the US (also refer to TERRA MODIS Rapidfire image below). EPA ground based air quality monitors reported mostly moderate conditions in this region. I suspect that some of the haze/smoke is also coming from Mexico in addition to the fires Jill and Amy noticed earlier in the week. IDEA produces a composite of wind trajectories and MODIS AOD; today’s product reinforces my claim.

Several noticeable fires were also evident in Florida.

Cats lack receptors for sweet taste. I can vouch that they do have an affinity for basil, oregano and spearmint, however.

BCNU, dear journal. Quite a bit in the new year, I suspect.
