"We do not need any other Tutankhamun's tomb with all its treasures. We need context. We need understanding. We need knowledge of historical events to tie them together. We don't know much. Of course we know a lot, but it is context that's missing, not treasures." - Werner Herzog, in Archaeology, March/April 2011
I'm very very sorry for your loss ip.
People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor
So sorry for your loss IP. We miss you around these parts. I hope you find peace in this difficult time.

Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

Broke parts take a little longer, though.

I thought I would lose my mom to it 5 years ago. I agree. It sucks. Now its like living with a time-bomb that can go off at anytime. She was dx'd at stage four with it coursing through her lungs, neck, and brain.

Sorry about your loss, IP. I lost my dadalmost two years ago, but not to cancer. He just wore out.
