|Your Personality Profile|
|Your Fortune Is|
|Slow and Steady|
Traditional and comforting. You focus on living a quality life. You're not easily impressed with novelty. Yet, you easily impress others.
Okay, I can live with that! Alright, what's next!
You tend to notice the big things in life... But the details aren't exactly your forte
[Hmmm... I thought that I was extremely observant. ] Details, details.... whatever!
|Your Superhero Profile|
Your Superhero Name is The Snow Liberator Your Superpower is Chemical Your Weakness is Crystals Your Weapon is Your Turbo Claws Your Mode of Transportation is Kite
I thought my super hero name was going to be Super Grammaloo.... Snow Liberator... [huh]. Chemical... like deficiency? Like in menopause? I do have a weakness for crystals.... beading crystals that is! I used to have a cat named Turbo and another one named ClawPaws. I think I would need a humongous kite to super hero here and there! Some of these tests are goofy, but fun!
|You Passed the US Citizenship Test|
Hey I love Hawaii!
|Your Hawaiian Name is:|
Aww! That sounds pretty, wonder what it means? Okay I looked it up, it means.... Heavenly Seagull King!?
I believe my real Hawaiian name is Kani Malia. I don't know what that means though. Probably is not very impressive either!
Well that is enough tests, I need to take my poor puppy out for a walk now.
I hope you have a beautiful day!

We have had a very nice fall. It has been warm. Here in Houston we have had frost once, maybe twice the past week and it was light. I remember when our kids were in school, the first day of school was usually very cold with heavy frost everywhere! Now we have enjoyed warm temperatures - above freezing- longer and earlier in the spring than we used to. MSNNBC 's "Arctic ice melting faster as temperatures climb" (Link included) news article has pictures of the diminishing sea ice. Associated Press reports that the Arctic sea ice is "20 percent less than the average of end-of-summer ice pack cover measurements recorded since 1978." That has to be contributing to all the flooding down South and in Mexico today.
I remember the predictions someone gave of how the Earth would someday be flooding everywhere. The article I read included maps of the lands predicted to be swamped with water. I don't even remember who wrote it or who predicted it, but I always remember the maps. Most of Florida ended up being part of the Gulf! I can't help but think of that article when I look at pictures of New Orleans standing in water. Maybe New Orleans and the South should rebuild with houseboats! They can paddle away, paddle to the grocery store, paddle to Micky Dee's, paddle over to the neighbors. Just think, no more grass to mow! I see there is a new storm troubling the South again.
Here in our corner of Alaska, Twin Lake is higher than it normally is, and it has been since early spring! We thought it might be from a very industrious family of beavers at the outlet of Twin Lake. We checked earlier in the spring but didn't find a beaver dam.
Right now, it looks like we will have another warmer than normal, sunny, and windy day here.
