I'm 51 years old. I think it is highly probable that within my lifetime I will see a cure for some of the "easier" progressive neurological conditions, for example Parkinson's Disease. (Of course I want world peace, who wouldn't.. but a cure for Parkinson's is probably quite close and world peace seems light years away.) Ever since we mapped the human genome, amazing things keep happening in medical genetics. Finding the key to a condition that is poly-genetic, such as Autism Spectrum Disorder, will probably not happen in my lifetime, but then again - who knows???? Anyway, tackling something like Parkinson's Disease seems realistic in the next 20 to 30 years.

What I REALLY want to see is for our species to have excellent success willingly controlling our population. We are far too successful a species. Whenever somebody comes on tv and tells me to recycle (I do), drive a hybrid (I do) and put in a solar system (we are - this coming March), I want to scream at the tv "...but what about population control?"

Anyway, things I do NOT want to see, but that will probably happen in my life - more detrimental effects of global climate change as coastlines rise, island nations disappear, animals species become extinct and resources become more scare.

Criming While White


That link reminded me of what happened to a colleague's son several years ago. The kid was caught shoplifting - a white teenager from a very resourced community. He was not formally prosecuted. He had to go to something called "family court" with his parents. The kid got off with doing some community service.

I think his case was handled correctly.

All teenagers who do stupid things should be treated kindly, respectfully and given a second chance.

My Junior High School music teacher chose this piece for our choral group to perform at a holiday concert back in the mid-70's. Since then I have numbered it amongst my favorite Christmas carols.

Which is just as easily changed to "My very earnest mother just served us noodles on a plate".


On = Oort Cloud???
A = Asteroid Belt???
Plate = Plutoid sized bodies in the Kuiper Belt???

Cute!!!

That famous fourth grade mnemonic device:

My (Mercury)
Very (Venus)
Earnest (Earth)
Mother (Mars)
Just (Jupiter)
Served (Saturn)
Us (Uranus)
Nine (Neptune)
Peanuts (Pluto)

... is easily changed to "My very earnest mother just served us noodles."

It is a lovely set of ornaments, Vic. Very pretty, very artistic.

Vic, is that first ornament supposed to be Mercury or the sun? If it is the sun, it is way too small. If it is mercury then that means the last one is Pluto. Sorry Ulibelle and Rob, but that one has to go!

Oh and thanks for jumping down My throat Angela, I really didn't need that...

Vic, for heavens sake, I wasn't jumping down your throat!!! I was asking a question and gently teasing Uli and Rob.

As for Pluto, I am sorry that so many people are attached to it. Astronomers have determined that it is part of the Kuiper Belt. There are dozens of Pluto-sized things in that belt. Pluto doesn't stand out in that crowd. If you want to call everything Pluto-sized a "planet" then there would be thousands of planets on our solar system. You would have to include Pluto-sized bodies in the Oort Cloud, the Asteroid Belt and the Kuiper Belt. We are much better at detecting things in our solar system now than we were when Pluto was first discovered. Pluto was justifiably "demoted" from planet status after we learned more about what is zipping around in our galactic neighborhood.

@Ang, we will just have to rent that movie for our next slumber party.

That is a great idea! Eric and I never got around to seeing it in the theater.
