    This is just beautiful - I really appreciated the videos, I had quite forgotten the pressure/drilling gradient stuff but it all came right back.  Of course we know that old thing is still leaking -  so - SURPRISE there is lots of damage and dead animals on the Gulf floor.  Shocking!  ;)  By the way, for those "experts" who say the GOM is warmer, that is true - at the top. Down below, not so much. Bah!
    There really is only so much death, damage, and destruction of the environment and, in a more general way, with what is left of our country.  I wonder how long we can go on without having some kind of collective breakdown.  I don't like to think about it, but it's certainly not a good place inside my own head these days.
    This was a gorgeous and informative diary and I know you worked hard - it shows! Thank you, as always.
    Happy President's Day, GW's.

    •  Hah. Didn't even know it was Prez's Day (7+ / 0-)

      until someone told me the vet's office was closed tomorrow.  (Got a pooch with a very upset tummy.)

      Thanks, Jan.  This is why we need to make sure we stop and fully experience those tiny moments of joy every day (I know -- I sound like a fruit loop, but it's true).  A bird, the position a cat is sleeping in, the way the setting sunlight shines on the bright underside of a gull in flight... Gotta soak those in in a big way, every day.

      Makes it so much easier to keep going.

      I'm sorry things are rough.  Know the feeling.  But hang in there -- when you can't keep walking, we'll carry you.

      •  You are correct :) (6+ / 0-)

        A bunch of us teachers got together and made signs for today's rally and had a delicious dinner together last evening, we had a good time "discussing" (emphasis on 'dis') Gov. Ka$ich and his buddies.  We'll get through this, we all recounted our days when we were young single moms with younger kids at home, no money, nasty principals...
        It's going to be a rough time but we'll be alright.
        SORRY about your pootie - seems to me like you've had quite enough of sick pets lately.  :(  Hope the kitteh is better!
