Indeed you do.

hey there say, mouse...

say, is the gal around town, still?

here, this is almost done...

have some of the hair to still add to...
and then, THE 49'ers??? on the shirt... SHE had that on her shirt,
but--
i could leave it plain... however, for the memory etc, she may like the
"white dots" design, it IS true to the photo then...

and not sure... i might ADD some kind of thanksgiving stuff on the wall etc??
might be nice with the added color for memory fun, too of the day:
as, was this ???? from the thanksgiving day town meal, or not???

here are the two ideas... not sure which i will do yet...


what do you think? or any one else, as to feedback...
however, i know, i will go my gut-feelings, too...
but i did not want to risk messing it up and using more time
to reFIX it then...


not sure which... still have to work with the hair, too... :&#41;

Kate Sedley is the pen-name of Brenda Margaret Lilian Honeyman Clarke, an English historical novelist.
She was born in Bristol in 1926 and educated at The Red Maids' School, Westbury-on-Trym.
She is married and has a son and a daughter, and three grandchildren.
Her medieval historical whodunnits feature Roger the Chapman, who has given up a monk's cell for the freedom of peddling his wares on the road.

The latest I have read, from 2008.

I have enjoyed Kate's work immensely. Roger is one of the "white hats," naturally...

I haven't seen "her" (mystery gal) lately, but she's gotta be around.

I will keep checking. I wish that I could recall her name, which she told me.

I think either one looks fine. You are the judge, not I. You do fine work, and we all appreciate it. Thank you, one more time. :0)

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".


**Some may have already declined too far.
