I cannot find a copy of The Spoonbills Cry, attributed to him as well.

But did he like to be served with Tomato Surprise? That's what I wanna know.

Frank Albert Sinatra, age 5.

Definitely not the style in which Frank sang.

I've dreamt about a route named Via Sinatra someplace near some water. Are there cliffs in Hoboken? I know there are in Paterson.

Apparently so.

Found a one dollar copy of Why Sinatra Matters by Pete Hamill.

Very enlightening historically and musically.

Sinatra was willing to try anything.
"Such a skinny guy, no wonder he loves the Wide!" they may have said,
Had Frank Albert chosen not to sing but to climb instead.

Sinatra put his fame to use in ways other than the typical USO tours, none of which he made during the war.

Doin' it his way.

With an assist from transgenic mice. There may be help afterall.

►KL-VS Genetic Variant of KLOTHO Is Associated with Enhanced Cognition in Three Independent Human Cohorts and in a Meta-Analysis


We therefore investigated whether klotho can impact physiological brain function and, more specifically, whether it can prevent or counteract cognitive decline in human aging. We demonstrate that the lifespan-extending variant of the KLOTHO gene, KL-VS, is associated with increased klotho levels in serum and enhanced cognition in aging people heterozygous for the allele in three cohorts and across multiple ages. We also analyzed transgenic mice with moderate systemic overexpression of klotho. Independent of age, these mice performed better in multiple tests of learning and memory than controls. Further investigation of potential underlying mechanisms revealed unexpected effects of klotho elevation on the functions of synapses and glutamate receptors.

Clotho was the daughter of Zeus and Themis, and sister to Lachesis and Atropos, according to Greek mythology. Clotho is also mentioned in the tenth book of the Republic of Plato as the daughter of Necessity, the Mother of Invention.

All you gotta know, really, but thanks.

Fate? And fingers?

Phlogiston theory has to do with combustion and oxidation. It is outmoded.

It was good when it came around, just didn't explain things real well.

I like the idea of "inventing a necessity." It happens that oxidation is the reason we have graffiti, in my twisted logic. Phlogiston helped create thoughsands and thoughsands of jobs in the chemical industry, even thou it did not exist.

Apparently, according to this link, in 2010 U.S. spray-paint manufacturers produced 412 million cans.

That's a lot of boxcars.

Mark my words, in the future many will become "men of the klotho".

Can you pass the Klotho test - approximately 20% can.


A gene variant associated with long lives in those people who possess it may also make them smarter by improving brain function, researchers say.


It has been known for at least decade people with high body levels of Klotho tend to live longer, and researchers wanted to know if the hormone could protect our brains from aging as well as the rest of the body.

On the waterfront (of the Lower Merced), although I am now officially boycotting the Ric&Scudmo show, I was wondering if anyone else finds it strange that after nine years our intredpid investigator is just now getting around to investigating what caused the plane to go down. Apparently this private eye is an 80 percenter.

Yep, Dr. Q's sight unseen, all right, but how sharp is his hatchet?

We had Dr. J in here last month, though.

And your jay, Jay, he's jake with me.

That's quite a tour we took just now...Britain...then a lovely Shanghai, if a bit menacing...and now we are heading to not-very-deep space.

In fact, it's nearly next door in terms of our solar system.

hey there say, mouse... wow, happy to see and hear from you ... been a bit worried, but then, i REMEMBERED you had to use a library computer...

neat ducks, i love the way those ducks, SEEM to be painted, :)

say, great good morning sunrise, too!!

hope all your buddies are well there... and all the 12-to do friends, as well...

i STILL have fletcher's cookie cutter mouse to send, that my cat ate...
it will get there... just things were odd, of course, when my daddy was ill and died, :(

finally am getting caught up with things left on hold, here...







awwwwwww, i love seeing those mice all over the place... makes a house feel cozy, :) oh, wait, i think that is cats, that do that.... ;))


mice, keep a house BUSY, :)) you never know where they are running around at, :)



we got rain here... will be a non-sunny type summer, too, from the way the weather-computer-calendar looks...


say, i AM adding the gourds and color to the back of the painting but it is near done and i can even mail it after the weekend... but i will instead wait until the first week of june, as, i am at the 'scrape the bottom of the barrle' now, due to buying other canvas, etc... and,
a few things for my grandson, to send him...

so--this gives you time to 'hopefully' ask a few folks where she may be, for her to get the artwork... you don't have to tell what kind, just keep that part a surprise... i sure hope she will love it and that it will be a nice memory in her live, :)


welll,back to chores... finally cleaned the house and basement, wow!!

the ol' shed robin, has NOT nested this year, :(
i sure miss her and him... but, at least they, or other robins, ARE hopping in and out of the yard...


and,a scarlet tananger and her him, ARE nesting way out on the end of the ol' oak tree... great to see them!
a bit of sunshine, :))

happy good warm and productive day, to you mouse friend!

edit:
wow, love jasmine and rocks and the mice look great there!!!
