Would you prefer that I fill you on the wicked day of windsurfing I had this afternoon? I will spare you the details, but suffice it to say that Hans is starting to come into his own with the skill of jumping/catching air/launching it/skieing/touching the clouds/jumping over the adirondack mountains/you should probably get the point by now. The swells on Lake Champlain get super, super big and steep.
Who else thinks that Hilary should move to Vermont? Don't be shy...

When i found this out i wondered the same thing ya'll are pondering right this moment, " How, in all of creation did this child of kats end up being a Fenominal student?" Well either the apple fell far from the tree, or the apple fell from a different tree. And since i believe the ladder isn't a possibility, (although i did see Jesus fighting Sants Claus on Youtube the other night, and we all know how You tube doesn't lie) that makes the farmer more likely, but if neither are the case, than someone has to finish this sentence, i'm basically out of steam on this one.
Hans, for the record, I read 80 pages at work today. I made $1.20 for each page i read. Moneys knockin, pages are flippen, ....bills still arent being paid.

so, one driver is the 'tude.
in the slightest attempt to adjust that, i want to share a nice note about this new mexico --
(that might kill me before it makes me stronger)
each deciduous tree here turned gold. no bright red, barely an orange. just an orangey-gold. vibrant.
and in the high-altitude desert light (i don't know if there's really something to the high-altitude and desert that makes this light, but it does seem more spectacular than other lights i've lived in )
the gold is so gold.
especially around the time of sunset. just glowing. think of the movie "what dreams may come." think of the renaissance or impressionism. chiaroscuro. think of heaven.
it's very nice.
Vermont = Green Mountain
State motto for Vermont = The Green Mountain State
Vermont: The only state with the genius to have the name of the state also as the state motto....i think...
p.s. Seth, you have the wicked easiest life. I mean, it was so incredibly tiring windsurfing at Cape Cod yesterday and then driving all the way home last night. And then, if that weren't enough, I went windsurfing AGAIN today, and ripped it up on Lake Champlain. Then, I went all the way into Burlington to drink coffee and work at a coffee shop...Oh, what a life.
I'm in, im here, im ready to ....blog.
Echo wants EVERY princess dress, thats about the only interesting thing that has happened today. Oh yea, got lost in d.c. for 1.5 hours and had to pull over every few minutes to keep my car from over heating. Also had to turn it off at red lights. Fun times. seth

On average, how many hours from now will it take to break even considering i have 2 $45 tunings and 1 $50 tuning due to be completed tomorrow by 3 post meridian!?

Nedroid - Was the first to be challenged to create such an amazing piece of art.
200 Bad Comics - Part 1
200 Bad Comics - Part 2
200 Bad Comics - Part 3
200 Bad Comics - Part 4
Capn_Special was the second person to complete the whole 200 Bad Comic challenge. Although, internet speaking, it is technically a fan art of the first completion by Nedroid. Funny how the internet works huh?
Capn_Special 200 Bad Comics Fan-Art 1-10

i have broken most of the rules (not the grammatical ones, of course).
i, for one, probably won't make many changes. i'm not concerned about the general public (regarding this matter anyway), especially those who read a random family's blog. i still don't get why anyone would do that. i don't like to advertise myself on the internet; i just think it's a fun, cool and easy way for us to keep in touch. but the spacing advise is good. and it's all good to keep in mind, anyway. thanks fletch!
so real personal now--- fletch, i'm so impressed with your writing abilities. i actually thought some "blog master"( do those exist?) read our blog and was lecturing us about the do's and don'ts. like, we might get kicked off. nope, just fletch. the most serious blog master of them all.
remember, dr pax is hilary

The probability of randomly choosing the numbers 675385345913 is .0000000000035, or 1/285714285700. This means that if you were able to randomly choose a total of nine numbers many, many separate times, you would come up with 675385345913 every 285714285700 times, on average.
The probability of randomly choosing the numbers 9, 15, 23, 12, 6, 30 is .00000000129, or 1/775193798.4. Thus, this choice has the higher probability of occurring.
FYI, some of you may be able to perform these types of calculations in the future if you choose to earn a doctorate degree. Good luck.
Things To Avoid
Do not write text next to pictures, instead of below. There is an easy way to achieve this. Go down to where the picture ends and the text begins then right above the text you have created, type
What this will do is create a blank white line right above the text. That way, your text will move down the post and eventually leave the pictures sides and be below the photographs. Make sure you type
<br><br/>enough times to achieve this goal.
This isn't an email. When you type a new post up, you aren't writing per-say, to your family alone. Think of writing an essay, you know, WITH the capital letters, spaces and correct spelling. It doesn't have to be standard MLA Format, but it would be nice if the post was legible to the broad community, and not just to the people who like to squint their eyes.
Break up comments, not everything has to be one solid paragraph. If it quickly becomes two separate topics, add an indentation in order to give the reader a brief pause before continuing on.
Good Ideas you may want to take note of
Clear subject headings, as well as meaningful points. I'm not attempting to restrict anyone, as much as remind you all of the creature you are dealing with. If something most likely seems more appropriate in an email, than email it. I know you are all thinking that this blog will be viewed by an infantile few across the span of the web, but that is where you are most likely wrong. If you feel like posting some personal remark that I'm sure only those of us in the family will understand, than feel free and do so, just remember, we aren't the only ones reading it.
Example of what not to write. A post by mom.
ok, my pics didnt' go,
did something wrong,
will try again, but need to ck with someone
who has done it,
you're all doing well,
Lets go over what could have been done better in this post. I will give an example of how I would write this, had I been trying to convey the same message as mom.
OK, my pictures didn't go up when I posted them.
Did I do something wrong?
I will try again, but I need to check with someone who has done it.
you're all doing well,
Now, there is obviously a fine line between personality and professionalism. What wasn't "wrong" per-say was the fact she wrote "lvoe" (I still can't tell whether this is something she has sticked with, or whether it happens literally every time she writes it). Also, she is mom, so having a quick typing hand with little care for grammatical errors is kind of her thing. However, I would still suggest that each post be done with consideration.
Despite the fact that all of the above may sound harsh, I am just informing everyone about the standard practices of blogging. Still be yourself and try to make each blog personal to you, while at the same time attempting to reach out to others and share an experience with one another through this fine art.

Twelve Single-Digit Numbers. Example: 675385345913
Six numbers, each number can range from 1-30. Example: 9 15 23 12 6 30
So, to restate the question for those most likely confused. If each of these options were numbers randomly chosen,like a lottery, and you had to guess the random number chosen, what option has the higher probability of being chosen by you?
York and I discussed this for quite some time. I thought one way and York the other way, although he converted me over to his choice. I also called up two separate math graduate students whom both picked the same option.
