If you are reading this, THANK YOU!
Thank you for tuning us in. Thank you for reading our Blog!
THIS IS A MILESTONE. We started this Blog in February of 2013.
Yes, we have a “Seven Year Itch” and sometimes think about not blogging,
but it has been valuable to our experience during four months of Forced Lockdown.
(There are currently 50 Parts to our CoronaVirus! daily diary – read them!)
We thought about all the restaurants we “reviewed” and how they have to change their entire business model or go out of business. We thought about all the travel companies, vendors, and travel consultants we know that don’t have any business right now.
AND FUCK THE AIRLINES, HOTEL COMPANIES, CRUISE LINES AND CASINOS!
And please STOP BUYING THINGS “MADE IN CHINA” – SERIOUSLY JUST STOP!

“Say what you will about science…”

Logic follows clearly defined rules and tests for critical thinking. Logic also seeks tangible, visible or audible proof of a sound thought process by reasoning.

Greek philosopher Aristotle (384-322 B.C.) invented logic. He wrote the first known treatises of logical theory and taught the first logic classes in history. He was a student of Plato who was a student of Socrates.

The 2 types of logical arguments:
deductive and inductive reasoning provide evidence of the truth

logic

Science is the study of the natural world through observation and experiment.

Science is a systematic and logical approach to discovering how things in the universe work. It is the body of knowledge accumulated through discoveries about all the things in the universe.

Science is valued because the application of scientific knowledge helps satisfy many basic human needs and improve quality of life and standards of living.

“Science affects us all, every day of the year,
from the moment we wake up,
all day long, and through the night”

Prisoner of Fun

I’m Still a Prisoner of Fun!

A source of fun, playful behavior or good humor, behavior or an activity that is intended purely for amusement and should not be interpreted as having serious or malicious purposes, (a place or event) providing entertainment or leisure activities for children.
Adjective: providing amusement, amusing, entertaining, enjoyable, lively, pleasant, pleasurable, pleasing, boisterous, convivial, or merry
Verb: to speak or act in a way that is not serious, to joke or tease.

Spongebob’s Definition:
F- is for friends who do stuff together!
U- is for you and me!
N- is for anywhere and anytime at all down here in the deep blue sea!

From Scot Nery’s Blog:
We can trick people into really enjoying themselves and paying for fun. We just need to accept that they’re probably not going to pay for the fun directly. Here are some things to consider for the way we package fun entertainment.

  • coolness. people want something that’s cool and coolness can be expensive
  • social status. Like a selfie museum, it’s not always about being cool. It could be about looking valueable as an employee, or seeming like you fit in
  • memorable experience. A vacation is an example.
  • edifying experience. Maybe it’s educational or strengthening?
  • something expensive PLUS. The Palazzo circus show promotes themselves as a gourmet dinner plus entertainment.
  • connection to fame. See someone famous and be tricked into having fun
  • stress relief. If you ask adults why they play video games, they’re more likely to say this reason than simply that it’s fun, because stress relief is important
  • kids fun. if we give a kid something fun to do, it can be joyful to watch and also take away our headache for a little bit.
  • brand engagement. A good tv commercial is fun and it also is worth money to the brand because audiences deem it attention-worthy.

The scientific method is a method of investigation involving experimentation and observation to acquire new knowledge, solve problems, and answer questions.

tumblr_oycsqzBRbh1vy747uo1_500

Scientific method involves making conjectures (hypotheses), deriving predictions from them as logical consequences, and carrying out experiments or empirical observations based on those predictions. A hypothesis is a conjecture, based on knowledge obtained while seeking answers to the question.

The 3 principles of scientific thinking
The scientific method is practiced within a context of scientific thinking, and scientific (and critical) thinking is based on three things:
1. Using empirical evidence (empiricism), data collected through direct observation and/or experimentation. Observations are based on specific events that have already happened and can be verified by others as true or false.
2. Practicing logical reasoning (rationalism),
3. Possessing a skeptical attitude (skepticism) about presumed knowledge

The 9 steps of the scientific method in order
The scientific method and consists of the following eight steps:
1. Objective observation (remain totally value free when studying; try to remain totally unbiased in all investigations and experiments)
2. Ask a testable question,
3. Gather information and background research,
4. State a hypothesis (and make predictions based on it),
5. Design and perform the experiment and test the hypothesis (and predictions),
6. Collect data and make conclusions,
7. Draw conclusions and report,
8. Evaluate (and use the results to draw conclusions and refine the hypothesis, make new hypotheses and/or predictions)
9. Publish findings (optional).

source

When conducting research, scientists use the scientific method to collect measurable, empirical evidence in experiments related to a hypothesis (often in the form of an if/then statement), the results aiming to support or contradict a theory.

Scientific knowledge allows us to develop new technologies, solve practical problems, and make informed decisions

Five skills scientists use in observation to learn about the world:
(we observe objects and events using all of our five senses)
1. communicating,
2. classifying,
3. measuring,
4. inferring,
5. predicting.

She Blinded Me With Science!
Synth-Pop and New Wave from 1982
Songwriters: Jonathan Kerr / Thomas Dolby
2313
It’s poetry in motion
She turned her tender eyes to me
As deep as any ocean
As sweet as any harmony
Mm, but she blinded me with science
She blinded me with science
And failed me in biology, yeh yeh
Now uh, huh huh
When I’m dancing close to her
Blinding me with science, science
Science
I can smell the chemicals
Blinding me with science, science
Science
Science
Mm, but it’s poetry in motion
And when she turned her eyes to me
As deep as any ocean
As sweet as any harmony
She blinded me with science
She blinded me with science
And failed me in geometry
When she’s dancing next to me
Blinding me with science, science
Science
Mmm mmm, mmm mmm, mmm
I can hear machinery
Blinding me with science, science
Science
Huh, it’s poetry in motion
And now she’s making love to me
The spheres’re in commotion
The elements in harmony
She blinded me with science
She blinded me with science
And hit me with technology
Good heavens Miss Sakamoto, you’re beautiful
I, I don’t believe it
There she goes again
She’s tidied up and I can’t find anything
All my tubes and wires
And careful notes
And antiquated notions
But, it’s poetry in motion
And when she turned her eyes to me
As deep as any ocean
As sweet as any harmony
Unh, she’s blinding me with science
She blinded me with science
She blinded me with SCIENCE!

Thank you all for your messages! I truly appreciate your kind thoughts! Heartbroken over the loss of my little girls, we had to get a new friend for my Big Boy: Introducing the new girl (she just flew in and boy are her paws tired) – instant love!

Again, THANK YOU all for your messages! I’ve been happily distracted meeting the new girl today. If you missed the update she arrived this morning. She is an amazing dog at 8 weeks old! Going to be fun training her. It’s also really hard because waves of sorrow keep hitting me hard off and on too. So, it’s been an emotional roller coaster ride all day long but now we have a beautiful new puppy!

UPDATE: Tuesday, August 16, 2016 – End of Day 3

13924855_1466452936714601_8989035219302284586_n

Tuesday Afternoon!

“So gently swaying thru the fairyland of love,
if you’ll just come with me and see the beauty of Tuesday afternoon”

5 days and I miss them so much! Day 3 with the new puppy and she is a fun and furry handful! I’m loving this little girl and she’s also a great distraction because it’s hard to be sad when you’re enjoying the innocence and exuberance of a new puppy discovering the world. My Big Boy is super depressed and hasn’t fully accepted the new girl, it’s still too soon for him, and he constantly on alert when we go outside. So he’s getting a lot of love, extra attention and daily special time too.

UPDATE Thursday, August 18, 2016 – End of Day 7 (just before midnight)

She is adjusting well to her new home and exploring everything. She learns really fast and is just a beautiful little girl.

Thursday Morning!

So it’s been 8 days since the tragedy and we’re dealing with the loss, it’s really hard and everyday there are reminders and there’s an emptiness here without them…

The little puppy is the best distraction and she is getting constant attention and love. And she’s getting bigger already! She went to the vet on Monday and the results from her stool sample showed that she has giardia (an intestinal parasitic infection) and maybe an ear infection, so she is on a couple daily medications. She’s always hungry now and been eating well since the last update. She very active, feisty and fast. And very curious about the borders of the rooms and yards when she roams free.

More pictures from Wednesday and Thursday:

The Big Boy has been very depressed and really misses his friends. He gets special time each day and we’ve been trying to get him to accept the new puppy. There was a little progress today but it’s still too soon for him and she’s still too little. She is fascinated by his big tail, but he is not amused when she attacks it. He’s being such a good boy and tolerating the new puppy’s attempts at play. He did growl at her a little today and backed her off once when she was biting on him.
