He walks through the destruction with an attitude. And those eyes.

Let's say youth meant about 20 in 1983. They would be 57 in 2020. Progress much?

Another great moment in New Zealand Politics

Steven Joyce, the Super Minister in 2016. Yes, that is a dildo. No, the person who threw it at him did not get beaten by the police, go to jail, or get charged with any crime. Maybe because it is NZ, or maybe because it was a fair go.

Door Prairie Barn -- LaPorte Indiana

Door Prairie Barn -- LaPorte Indiana

My Mom sent this through today via a chain of forwards. Whoever took the photo did a great job.

This barn has been there since the 1800's. As a teenagers, working for my Dad, my brother and I removed the shingles in the more standard barn behind the trees prior to re-roofing. Hot, dusty work that summer.

This is my positive attitude.

This is my positive attitude was my catch phrase during research for my masters degree. For months, every day, seven days a week,  there was something new that went wrong / broke. I then had to solve the problem and move on. Perseverance and resiliance were lessons learned, painfully.

This one is mine. :)
