Land of the Flat Water


First thing I do each morning is go to National Geographic
network for the fascinating things they have there. Today
photos of Saturn are scintillating and magnificent. Then
I go to emails. I have subscribed to the magazine since
1959: and read it cover to cover. So I love the topic
you brought up, as well as that fascinating video from
a few days back on the DominicanREpublic critter that looks
like an opossum.

I can see it now. Shonky olm salesmen running around Europe flogging off baby dragons for buckets of ducats and hightailing it before they fail to grow up... laugh

That's quite a sentence there, I would not want to have to parse it, but I'd love to
be on that safari.
