I have the notion of taking a break and trying to get more things done around the house and such. I have set a date of next monday. I don't know if I will abandon this place (prolly won't) but I intend to change my patterns of behavior

Getting things done around the house is always good! I myself have a date with a bucket of drywall compound.

Are you willing to take passengers on this voyage of self-exploration and restoration?

I'll make up a list for ya.

U.S. Air Force General Jack Ripper goes completely and utterly mad, and sends his bomber wing to destroy the U.S.S.R. He suspects that the communists are conspiring to pollute the "precious bodily fluids" of the American people. The U.S. president meets with his advisors, where the Soviet ambassador tells him that if the U.S.S.R. is hit by nuclear weapons, it will trigger a "Doomsday Machine" which will destroy all plant and animal life on Earth. Peter Sellers portrays the three men who might avert this tragedy: British Group Captain Lionel Mandrake, the only person with access to the demented Gen. Ripper; U.S. President Merkin Muffley, whose best attempts to divert disaster depend on placating a drunken Soviet Premier and the former Nazi genius Dr. Strangelove, who concludes that "such a device would not be a practical deterrent for reasons which at this moment must be all too obvious". Will the bombers be stopped in time, or will General Jack Ripper succeed in destroying the world ? Written by Colin Tinto <cst@imdb.com> (http://www.imdb.com/search/title?plot_author=Colin%20Tinto%20%3Ccst@imdb.com% 3E&view=simple&sort=alpha)
U.S. President Merkin Muffley is on the hot line to Moscow with some rather embarrassing news for the Soviet premier: "Hello, Dimitri....I'm fine....Now then, you know how we've always talked about the possibility of something going wrong with the bomb....The bomb, Dimitri. The hydrogen bomb....Well, now, what happened is that, uh, one of our base commanders...he went a little funny in the head....and he went and did a silly thing....He ordered his planes to attack your country." A comedy about an accidental nuclear attack? One that ends with total annihilation, thermonuclear apocalypse? Preposterous! Stanley Kubrick thought otherwise. In the end his thinking prevailed. The mad saga revolves around a psychotic Strategic Air Command officer, Gen. Jack D. Ripper, who lets loose his B-52 bomber squadron on the Soviet Union. Ripper takes this unilateral action because of his paranoid belief that Communists are sapping and contaminating "all our precious bodily fluids" as part of their plan to take over the world." Unbeknownst to Ripper, his attack will trigger the Russian's ultimate weapon, the Doomsday Machine, a diabolical retaliatory device set to blow up the planet.

Phillip,

Yeah, there's wisdom in taking stock; I'm sure there are prolly things that have to get done. This place is a pit for procrastinators. But you've also got friends here - see if you can come to a way of using this place that you're comfortable with. You'd be missed, else.

Best,

LOL, good one.

I dunno why, but I'm reminded of the movie my father made - the leading lady was called Energine because she got lit so easy. I have to take what's left of the film and see if I can get it duped to disc. I'd love to see it again - haven't seen it since mid fifties. Anyway, ifn ya ain't got any Energine, Coleman fuel is "aces, Laddy Buck". Git yerself a match an yer hot.

It should be either "You, Riff Raff" or "You riff raff".

Take a break! Get right with yourself, if that's what's what. Seriously, dude, I recognize a philosopher/bricklayer when I see one... hell, I've worked with one these past few weeks!
