I'm a retired science and health teacher and tutor (taught 1967 to 2012), and a father of two successful, independent adults (one step-, one that I'm in touch with often). I'm a grandpa to one grand-daughter and one grand son.

I consider myself quite fit, and healthy! Full head of hair, and close to ideal weight. I get a workout in every day! Sweating is in my daily play-book!

I do volunteer work a local botanical garden that's famous having the biggest/best Bonsai collection east of the Mississippi.

Search Botanical garden in Ft. Pierce, Florida.

I've been there since 2016, focusing on the veggie garden.

See my pics of me working the veggies!

Every once in a while I have an erotic dream...with a variety of women...but that happens too rarely....kind of like my life? I recall trying to help a fella (or gal? not sure which) in this section, who complained of horrific dreams. I was so sad that I had (apparently) no way to help him/her re-direct away from the frightening "nightmares"....but I guess that's the nature of life. Some imagine horrible situations, and they become part of their "dream-scape" and then they're stuck with repeats of them. I tried to suggest reading pleasant stories, watching pleasant movies...but (s)he was resistant....insisting that they were indelible... oh, well. I guess it takes a repeated face-to-face to work on changing ones' dreams...?

Robecology comments on Jul 18, 2019:
Futurists like me are scientists. We have to be science-minded to plan for the future. The problem is that Greed is a welcomed and nurtured strategy in America (and most of the "free" world). ...and greed is the antithesis of science. It's adopted by all the #religulous, the climate change deniers. the war mongers. the Fossil fuel addicts. Greed is shunned by the wise, the ecological, the conscientious. Greed is a perfect addiction....the greedier you get, the more your rewards....nothing to shoot/snort/take.... your family loves your "habit".... ...but it is an addiction....losers in the "greed" game go through depression and suicide. A high rate of self-defeating eating and smoking behaviors afflict the greedy. We will either let the greedy dominate the planet and speed up our approach to doomsday and extinction....or we'll vote them out of office, vote to support restricting the greedy from abuse....and slow down our approach to termination. I'm expecting the former...I hoping for the latter.

Love this story; ...and non-scientists/skeptics about the past are in absolute denial about this. This is how we discovered the concept of "nuclear winter". This explains, also, why Venus is so hot...hotter than Mercury. The clouds and gases (from Volcanoes, then) trapped the heat - or kept it out....putting the whole planet in to either an out-of-control rise or drop in temps. Most of the time that Dinosaurs were on the earth there was NO snow nor ice due to the high volcanic activity.

Acclimatize as much as possible. Let yourself and baby J "feel the heat" once in a while. The future is much, much hotter for much, much longer. To survive you/we need to adapt. Global warming is real, it's happening, and it's accelerating. Let me add; Look at this graph. Air conditioning is only 40-50 years old. Many of us were born without it in our lives. We need to open the windows more often. Get out in the heat. Don't be afraid to sweat. Adapt or die....the planet is getting hotter, at a faster rate...

Religious Shunning
Robecology comments on Jul 17, 2019:
16 yes, 15 no...so about even. Interesting. I'm a regular donor to a Christian education group (TimothyHill.org) - mainly because I met them, discovered they're not "preachy" so much as humble and devoted to rescuing kids who were either kicked out of their homes. or schools, or courts...or all three (usually). They really bend over backwards to accommodate them; so I've set up a charity through "Smile.amazon.com" and share it regularly with folk. I've been to family affairs where "prayers" were said....I just say nothing. I don't make my feelings known...I don't create issues or debate with them...so I can't say I've ever been shunned...even by the devout that I know.

Those who still support Trump are locked in. They're righteous. They're convinced. They're arrogant. They're threatening. They're also severely undereducated, and unintelligent...they didn't do well in school, and/or dropped out early. They've had unplanned kids...and will continue to do so. They drive on the left as slow as they want to. We all know a few folk like this...they're quite often the #Religulous of America, as well. ...and they will be a potent voting force in 2020. If we don't get the vote out...and end up with a candidate that a large bunch of us aren't happy with..... We could suffer the effect; 4 more years of DJT. All i can suggest is; they won't die out. They won't go away. They will fight and cheat to support Trump; even if it means wearing "We support Russia before Democrats" T shirts. Be aware they exist...and in large numbers.

Robecology comments on Jul 17, 2019:
So to sum it up; you're becoming agnostic, but you don't want to "advertise" it, or get in to debates about it. Am I getting the gist, here? My answer? The older and wiser you get, the more you ask questions about "myths". Blind faith is hard to sustain in this day and age...so kudos to you for recognizing your shift in values. There's no agnostic "church'. No places to meet. No groups to hang with. There is this website...which as you see is growing and expanding. I encourage you to stay. Join groups that you might be interested in. Share your bio and some pics. Life is short. Share a smile...that's all we ask.... About the inevitable "what happens when we die" thing that all #religulous are pre-occupied with, I defer to a comment made by a fabulous writer. You might want to read or watch his video, "The God delusion"...he says this about death; https://biodork.files.wordpress.com/2011/08/yqgof.jpg
My apologies if this has come up before. Is there such a person as a soulmate?
Robecology comments on Jul 17, 2019:
Alvin Toffler (In his book, Future Shock) pointed out that the growing population has a reverse affect on our finding and staying with a "soulmate"; the more crowded it gets, the harder it becomes to find, and stay with, that "ideal" partner. "When neighbors are not physically "close by" you seek them out, you make friends. As our neighborhood has grown, your desire to "know your neighbor" diminishes...." "We live longer, go through more changes faster than ever. Thus it's harder to stay and continue on a parallel development path with the "soulmate" today than it was decades, and centuries ago". https://www.brainyquote.com/authors/alvin_toffler John B. Calhoun did the science on this, in his landmark study "Population Density and Social pathology"...in '62. Basically he said, the more crowded it gets, the crazier we get, the more sexually deviant/asexual we become, the more child neglect/abuse evolves, the more we hoard, the greedier we become. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1501789/pdf/califmed00143-0080.pdf

You have to know where you're fishing. What kind of bottom. What pollution level is the water. When are the fish biting. Are they good eating or not. Is it from dock, boat, or bridge. Lures vs live bait. Good "tackle" vs old/cheap tackle. Live bait put on the hook well vs not put on well could also make a difference. So many variables makes fishing for your dinner a questionable and challenging thing to do.

It's a supply and demand issue. There's always an abundance of people lining up for jobs at Amazon. Their pay and benefits are not bad...they're fair and competitive. Sure you have to hustle...but you're told that from the start. Unions have gotten "top-heavy" with fat executives living off of swollen dues. The day of unions are fading unless they can "trim the fat" and focus on the real needs for fairness and consistency to workers...and clearly they've failed miserably on this. Here's Elon Musk's (Tesla, SpaceX, SolarCity) take on unions.... https://qz.com/1285403/elon-musks-daylong-twitter-rant-on-unions-and-us-history/ And Here's where I got the other info. I'm really surprised that so many of my progressive/Socialists associates are so pro-union. It worked for us many decades ago...today's unions are basically "old fashioned and out of date"....and more closely represent the platform of the Republican Party. https://www.baltimoresun.com/news/bs-xpm-1991-06-26-1991177143-story.html

Robecology comments on Jul 16, 2019:
Vague, glowing, flowery rhetoric but pointless. Yada-yada-yada. The most significant thing he said...IMO....is "The people you really have to motivate aren’t the Democratic base, they’re the people in the middle who have been unsettled by Trump’s presidency."....
Why do the Rethuglicans hope to gain by justifying the President's attacks?
Robecology comments on Jul 16, 2019:
They hope to gain "the good old days" of being wasteful, being racist, being sexist. The days of white male dominance. Of denying climate change caused by fossil fuel use..so they can still rake in the profits from their GM and Shell oil stock. That was, to some, a "blissful" time...they haven't realized how "blissfully unaware" of the suffering of minorities and women...they want things like "when a man was a MAN and a woman knew her place"...

I don't think you're giving yourself enough credit. You've stopped calling him "skid mark" because you've matured. You've grown in awareness. You know that the root of "kidding" is true feelings...and you've outgrown racism. Not a bad thing.... It's not that you're "chuckle button" is broken.....it's that you've wised up and know that racism - even "kidding around" - is no longer funny.

Time to trim back the sucker stems...a simple scissor or snip...cut the stems growing with no flowers...or you'll have to much small fruit, and a top-heavy plant.
I don't know if this is the place for this but here goes..The End of the Empire [truthdig.com]
Robecology comments on Jul 16, 2019:
From the article; "The empire will limp along, steadily losing influence until the dollar is dropped as the world’s reserve currency, plunging the United States into a crippling depression and instantly forcing a massive contraction of its military machine." Maybe that's a good thing? We've followed the Roman militarism model too long. Maybe now that China will come in to world dominance, our "policing the world" will be forced out?
Gotta remember to keep that to myself

Hey Dot. I've been an "Apple" Fan since the 90's....they work great, and once you get used to the system it's easy. The only catch is the initial investment....costly. But I still strongly recommend you go in to your nearest "Apple" store.... BTW; thanks to your inspiration I've broken the 145 barrier...144.5 this AM!

Robecology comments on Jul 16, 2019:
Alvin Toffler explained why it's so hard to find a "perfect match"... He pointed out that as we continue to grow and get healthier, that relationships will be strained. "we'll meet more people, and go in different directions much faster and easier than our fore-fathers....so our chances of "staying together" and "growing together" are greatly reduced". His solution was ominous; “To survive, to avert what we have termed "future shock", the individual must become infinitely more adaptable and capable than ever before. We must search out totally new ways to anchor ourselves, for all the old roots - religion, nation, community, family, or profession - are now shaking under the hurricane impact of the accelerative thrust. It is no longer resources that limit decisions, it is the decision that makes the resources.” ― Alvin Toffler, Future Shock
Does this happen in real life?

Robecology comments on Jul 15, 2019:
Go to "About this mac" Click on the "storage" tab then click on the "manage" tab, then the "optimize" tab...that should help. The older units have less memory than the newer ones... I just "traded in a Macbook pro (2011) for a Macbook Air.... They give you very little for the trade in....but it's better than trying to sell it yourself. But you're being more "ecological" by trying to optimize your storage. Easiest way is to go through your old pictures and dump the ones that have become meaningless.

I have experiences along the whole spectrum...I met my first wife in college ('65), my second wife in a bar ('77) my third wife through a friend's introduction ( 92) and the fourth through internet (95). I met a woman that I never married in '06, on line...and she's been fading out of the picture gradually...she's "almost" my ex....I'm "almost" entirely relationship-free.... I'm surprised the "bar" scene has an "upturn"....I find it so hard to "get to meet' someone while drinking, talking over the loud music, etc.
