    was a 32yr old Fireman. And he made a horrible mistake jumping off a bridge for the thrill of it. He died. The memorial was last Sunday. It was packed, close to 400 people. The older we get, the more that deaths of those younger than us hurt I guess. And hurt it does indeed. My closure was when the bagpiper played Amazing Grace. I knew I would cry like a baby. I knew it was coming. I welcomed it. As I told the DH on Monday, I am cried out now. Cannot cry anymore. It is now done. Bernie is gone. Next summer, we will have a celebration of his life with a bbq. And we will laugh and drink and toast his memory. The memories can never be taken away.  

    if a habitat is flooded, the improvement for target fishes increases by an infinite percentage...because a habitat suitability index that is even a tiny fraction of 1 is still infinitely higher than zero, which is the suitability of dry land to fishes.
