    Morning Everyone πŸ™‚

    The first image was originally different colors, but I 1st saw it all blue, and well – it is aviation & I really like blue

    To go with the above illustration here are some 1893 photos of Otto Lilienthal test flights. He was a German pioneer of aviation who became known as the flying man. He was the first person to make well-documented, repeated, successful flights with gliders.

    Have a great day everyone – it’s off to sleep for me! πŸ˜‰

      Good morning, Nyet! TOG&C inspired me this ayem to live dangerously in the sky; so I’m not sure whether I should eat breakfast before or after I test out some gliders. …

      …over Rio de Janeiro…

      I’m staying in the penthouse at the Hilton on Copacabana Beach where I have a fabulous view…

      …and later will be having a conference with Brazil’s new president, Jair Bolsonaro…

      …to encourage his nation’s closer ties with the U.S. and the possibility of hosting a U.S. military base there.

      Obrigada! (Found out today that males say, “Obrigado” and females “Obrigada”)

      • And get me a woman. I think that’s kind of important.


        • lovely says:

          No Wooly getting yourself a woman is not “kind of important” to your getting sober. I’m calling bullshit. You don’t have the right to put that onus on anyone. Especially a women who you want to be the love of your life. Get sober for her before you meet her. Give her that gift. Give yourself that gift. Be a gift.

          Wooly you have the tools, you have the desire, you have the impetus, you have your unshakable faith, you want a better life, or do you? Stop punishing yourself Wooly, your brother wouldn’t want you to punish yourself for something that you have no ownership in.

          Wooly, you exhaust me from hundreds of miles away, I can’t imagine how exhausting it is to be inside your brain, you are deserving of the beauty of this life Wooly, you seem to be the one person standing in your way.

          Nothing is wrong with you so don’t ask me that. You need to forgive yourself Wooly.

          Christ died for our sins, for all of them big and small and yet you are telling Him that His sacrifice is not enough, His suffering is not enough, you know better than Him and you must punish yourself for your sins both real and imagined, Christ crucifixion is not enough for you?

          Sobering thought Wooly.

          Again you are worth more than the life your living, you are capable of living a sober happy life, it’s all yours Wooly if you choose it. I love you Wooly, all of us here do, love yourself, I wish you could have the gift of knowing how special, gifted and beautiful you are, my prayer is that you give up your burden and that you embrace this beautiful gift of life.

    How to Download the Books That Just Entered the Public Domain

    Public Domain Day was yesterday, but you were probably hungover, so here’s how to download the tens of thousands of books that became legal to download for free in 2019.

    Basically, 2019 marks the first time a huge quantity of books published in 1923β€”including works by Virginia Woolf, Agatha Christie, and Robert Frostβ€”have become legally downloadable since digital books became a thing. It’s a big dealβ€”the Internet Archive had a party in San Francisco to celebrate. Next year, works from 1924 will enter the public domain, and so-on…

    The Mackinac Bridge!!! πŸ˜ƒ

    I went to the library after work the other day, looking for O’Reilly’s ‘Killing the SS.” It was checked out, so I got two other WWII books and went home.

    I was plowing through the first book last night when it occurred to me that while I was in college, there were all the news stories about college age folks who needed coloring books and safe spaces so they could be protected from ideas that scare them. I have the misfortune to have these folks as my contemporaries (I think I was closer to graduation at the time and they were freshmen, but I could be wrong.) And here I am, reading a book about WWII. Wanna talk about uncomfortable ideas? War is the ultimate uncomfortable idea.

    I wonder whatever became of those college students who were so intimidated by life.

      “In two presidential elections since 2000”, we Democrats have unjustly lost the Presidency due to that horrible Electoral College…because the Presidency is rightfully ours, you know…OURS!! And we don’t like anyone who thinks the Constitution, as originally written, is the law of the land or that the Founders had good reasons for including the Electoral College. Boo-hoo, boo-hoo, boo-hoo!

    lilbirdee12’s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.

    A prayer for Justice Kavanaugh and Col. Flynn:

    Prayer to St. Michael

    St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle;
    be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
    May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
    and do you, O prince of the heavenly host,
    by the power of God,
    thrust into hell Satan and the other evil spirits
    who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.
