    Yes, hottest day of summer so far.....supposedly a cool change coming over night. Only in the 20’s tomorrow

    We're in for a dry hot summer here too @Bunks...The island water delivery companies are all booked out until late February - March...Stay cool @Bunks :)

    Thanks @Shoshin - I recall having to be careful with water when staying out on the island too.

    The saying was "If it's yellow let it mellow, if it's brown flush it down!" :awesome:

    Ha! I like how it included "parenthood" @lobster.
    You could possibly add "English cricket fan" to that list at the moment too I'd suggest :)

  • Re: Was the Buddha human?

    It is said that immediately after his birth, he stood up, took seven steps north, and uttered:

    "I am chief of the world,
    Eldest am I in the world,
    Foremost am I in the world.
    This is the last birth.
    There is now no more coming to be."
    

    That's pretty special in anyone's book!! :)

  • Re: Contemplating on the body

    Yeah - disgust is probably too strong a word for it.

    It's just when I think of what my heart looks like beating away in my chest....and my lungs....my large intestine all coiled up down there and full of s**t....it's hard to put in to words the feeling I guess. But it's a good thing, I know that much.
