Yes Miss Sohos I an scared spit less of heights, every time I climb the truck ladder or step over the edge on a rappel I am shaking in my boots.
April I am a Maniac on a sewing machine especially the heavy duty unit we have at the fire hall.
Agent. 1989 I was diagnosed with the #1 cancer of young males Male testicular cancer.
all is better now (I will leave it at that)

OSU develops material that bends light
By KYLE ODEGARDGazette-Times reporter
Oregon State University scientists have helped develop a new type of composite material that can bend light the “wrong way,” and that could have a wide range of optical and electronic applications, according to the university. The material is made up of reflective and transparent layers, but right now, samples aren’t big enough to be seen by the human eye. “It’s pretty small, about a quarter of the size of a human hair,” said Viktor Podolskiy, an OSU assistant professor of physics. In theory, large amounts of the technology could make objects appear invisible by bending light around them.“Star Trek” fans shouldn’t begin plans for a Romulan cloaking device just yet, however. “I am pretty pessimistic about this, because it is cloaking for one wavelength,” Podolskiy said. The human eye or radar with multiple frequencies would notice objects, though there might be significant distortion, he said. Regardless, until recently, “negative index” material was science fiction and theory.Scientists started talking about the possibility in the late 1960s. “Up to the year 2000, there was no research,” Podolskiy said. “We had an explosion in that particular area. There are probably a couple hundred papers published every year on the subject.” Researchers at OSU, Princeton University and Alcatel-Lucent who developed the material believe it could be produced commercially, since it is created using existing tools available to the semiconductor industry. This material also is more robust and thicker than others that reflect light the wrong way, and as incredible as it seems, the OSU group’s sample is larger than others, Podolskiy said. “This is a big step forward,” he added. The material might be used to shrink infrared optical systems and create a super lens to see objects the size of a nanometer — about one-100,000th of a human hair’s diameter. It could also improve electronic manufacturing, data storage and medical systems, according to the university. Podolskiy said he thinks commercial applications of the material could be just a few years away.

I hope that I can bring something to the table and be a positive influence, I want to wade right in but I am going to force myself to ease in slowly.

Living In rural Montana we didn't have a lot of entertainment. we had a small theatre
(the Rex) and it played second run movies. One time we were in the big city of Spokane WA
(most of my family is from there) and Dad took us to the opening Of the "Jungle book", I was all of 5 but it burned itself into my little mind. and I can still Hear Louis Prima as King Louie sing "I wanna be like you" that Christmas I got a LP (Record for you youngsters) and I wore that album out....and drove Mama nuts, Bless her soul she was a patient person.

I listen to a lot of what my kids listen to and introduce them to new stuff, but I also can listen to Diane Krall and enjoy the hell out of it, my music tastes are all over the board.
Next Year Ozzy Osbourne will be 60 years and he looks to be 70 but when Zakk Wylde starts tearing up the frets Ozzy is all business, I love it he just keeps going. I remember my daughter at 3 singing at the top of her lungs "and Mama, Mama I'm coming home". Speaking Of the youngest of the wild bunch she is following me in Weight Watchers at home and loosing a lot of weight. She is kind of amazed at how easy it is
And I am proud she is taking it so serious.
And I am down 2 more pounds
