RE: Where do you come from?
I was born in Lincoln, Nebraska.
Moved to Bentonville, Arkansas when I was a kid. Bentonville's claim to fame? Hometown of Wal*Mart. My dad still lives in Lincoln, and as a child I would go up and visit a couple times a year and actually moved back there to live with him for a year at one point (disastrous).
I moved out to the Washington, DC area when I was 20. I moved here as a nanny and lived and worked in Centreville, VA, which is the town/suburb next to Summer's Manassas, VA. I moved to DC about a year after moving to the area, and currently live in Silver Spring, Maryland. I have been in the DC region for about 12 years now.

I haven't ever seen anything particularly interesting around the Iowa/Illinois border that I could put here. It's pretty boring...(Unless someone else knows of anything)

I was born in Illinois, and currently live in Iowa.

I came from my mom and dad. I can't speak for anyone else.

'The difference between a Miracle and a Fact is exactly the difference between a mermaid and seal. It could not be expressed better.'
-- Samuel "Mark Twain" Clemens

"I think that in the discussion of natural problems we ought to begin not with the scriptures, but with experiments, demonstrations, and observations".

- Galileo Galilei (1564-1642)

"In short, Meyer has shown that his first disastrous book was not a fluke: he is capable of going into any field in which he has no training or research experience and botching it just as badly as he did molecular biology. As I've written before, if you are a complete amateur and don't understand a subject, don't demonstrate the Dunning-Kruger effect by writing a book about it and proving your ignorance to everyone else! "

Kingsport Tennessee. Smells like shit sometimes because of a local factory but the mountains are pretty gorgeous.
"I trust my own reason and my own capacities to think and educate myself and to reach greater levels of knowlege and status through learning and work. To me, wishing for a god is like wishing to be a slave, it is like declaring that one is too incompetent to handle one's own affairs." - the germans are coming

Currently residing in Berzerkly, California. Lots of colorful folk who get their bizarre on at the yearly "How Berkeley Can You Be?" Parade. (Not my thing but pretty amusing.)

Lots of serious gardeners here too. Definitely my thing.

The last two and this next one are of artist and garden designer Keela Meadow's garden. If you click on this last one it will take you to its flickr source, and if you scroll down you'll see several other photos that show her insanely bold use of color.

Artist and garden designer Marsha Donahues's own 30 year plus garden is here too but I don't have decent photos of it.
Belief .. is the insistence that the truth is what one would .. wish it to be. The believer will open his mind to the truth on the condition that it fits in with his preconceived ideas and wishes. 


Faith, on the other hand, is an unreserved opening of the mind to the truth, whatever it may turn out to be.
