trials of a troll trying to get by in a world messed up by humankind [ I'M AT UTC -5]

 tonight while reading posts on Face Book i found a post that supported a hypothesis i had never heard before, whether for better or worse, it's in a topic that is flat in my wheel house, i know where to find on line all of the research tools to test said hypothesis......my conclusions were that it doesn't reach the level of proof to even give it thought to even consider that it's even plausible......but here is the problem I've been mulling over......now if this was on a scholarly page i probably would attack the findings.......but let's face it, if you attacked every post on face book that was at the very least naive, or at the worst just flat wrong......that's probably all I'd be doing and that's not why I'm on face book......I'm there to connect with old and current friends.......
(Please Note: i did not go into any details, and that was a conscience act....)

just a quiet, lovely spring day, rain is predicted for the PM tomorrow and most of Easter Day, took a short walk and picked up a few things that i needed to get thru to Monday if i can't walk the next 2 days
 have messed a little on my blogs.....added a few new links.....nothing done to the actual layout........

 Awoke this morning in a fog, not the weather outside which was a beautiful, sunny, warm spring day, had no real reason to walk, no place i needed to go, but walked anyway...but then for me, sometimes the best reason to do something is, pure whimsy.......
birds singing, Seagulls dumpster diving, woodchuck running, if you've never seen a woodchuck running away from you........one of the 10 funny things i know....
 so back to my rooms, messed a bit with the layout and theme of "Troll's Poetry Corner" also added a new poem...........

[note: it's a little spooky what will sometimes raise to the surface of the quagmire in what is laughingly referred to as my mind, or  at least what once was my mind]
a memory from many years ago:
when i was in my early 20's i used to run 20K races......this one was the "Sauerkraut Festival Run" hay no joke....run  in Phelps New York......every where you look below that little town, were fields of cabbages......
 To continue, i was running with this guy Dom, who ran for Rochester A.C..........on the corner where we turned was this old Hotel/bar .....probably built in the late 1800s........anyways that had a wrap around front porch complete with rocking chairs filled with beer drinking good old boy farmers........
 so as we past one of the guys on the porch yells "What you guys doing running away from your wives?"
 now Dom was a bit of a  wise ass, and always had a quick come back..his reply was 
" No we're running away from your wive"
said I "Are you crazy"
said  Dom "don't worry we can out run them"
said I "Dom they have pickup trucks"
[ Dom's reply has been deleted.......i don't use that kind of language here"
fortunately  they didn't follow us.........

( I have decided that my time is better spent here, than traipsing around Facebook...i may give an occasionally add a like, a funny reply or maybe even a snide one......but I've decided to take out my warped sense of humor and maybe even so vitriol here........)
on my walk today saw the first pair of ducks I've seen this spring.....it's still early and i'm hoping that this years number of ducks and geese will be near to last years numbers........just enjoy watching the little ones run around.........haven't seen any of the groundhogs.....aka. woodchucks yet......

i could give many sound reasons for why i walked today:
1) i was afraid that i might run out of somethings because the forecast for tomorrow is rain (not)
2) i wanted to check on the 3 ponds nearby to see if more geese had come back (true but thin)
3) i could probably fabricate several other excuses, oops i mean reasons........however
truth be told
it was 69*F and sunny, just a few wispy clouds, and a little wind......spring at least for today has sprung..............it was great to not have to layer and bundle up.........and just enjoy the warmer weather and just enjoy the walk.......

 Anyone who has read this blog before knows i have a burning desire to bore all my readers with my walks.......the weather up here is finally getting to be a nice spring, and today was a beautiful day....and except for a short walk to see if the pair of Canada Geese which spend time in  the pond just north of me were feeding.....but they were a no show.......i waiting to see the arrival of the goslings, but will still be a few weeks.........last year there were 7 pair of adults and between 25 and 30 little ones......
 but as to the walk, old age can be a bitch.........beautiful warm sunny spring day and all i can say about my legs today was that they reached from my hips to the soles of my feet.....was cold yesterday but the legs were good so walked twice and stocked up so i really don't need to walk until mid week....so by then i trust that the legs will co-operate.........
 As part of the on going construction [ some may say de-construction] of this blog, I have decided to include 3 posts from one of my now extinct blogs "Under the Bridge"[you can find them in  the footers at the bottom of the page].......that blog was more aimed at commentary about political and religious/biblical/social issue [or as some might say my rants].......and to be honest I've basically lost interest in politics......i may still from time to time comment on social/biblical issues......except for the poetry which will still appear on "Troll's Poetry Corner" [link on the left}.........what will result is to bring this going on 15 years project to what it was conceived of [ or is that ill conceived of] in the beginning, that is, a "garbage dump" so to speak for what ever comes out of my very varied, and completely warped mind......although none of the links to the best of my recollection ever appeared on another of my extinct blogs, a links blog "Trollie Hangs Ten".......I've added a bunch.....links that is......[ however my recollection could be questioned]
