Look: I am eager to learn stuff I don't know--which requires actively courting and posting smart disagreement.

But as you will understand, I don't like to post things that mischaracterize and are aimed to mislead.

Sometimes a caption isn't necessary.

I love this.

And thank you very much for your compliments.
Encouragement keeps me going. Thanks. :)

I think you made a good point with this picture. It speaks. Ya know?

Right on.
Although I haven't seen the rest of your stuff in here, I intend to. I first saw this and decided to speak on it.

Keep it up.

Two thumbs up!
(I'm back-tracking...you can tell!)
And dying to get in...
and BTW again, the more I read, the more I realize you're both "congenital" and "congenial" with your verbage. Keep up the great work! Now I have to get back to real work for a while. It's a privilege to live in Michigan--make it a GREAT day!
