Know your strengths, know the scope you work well at and can be most effective.

And that’s her prerogative, of course. 🙂 Christopher Baldwin August 6, 2019 at 10:50 am 3 years ago Some people help at a soup kitchen, some run for Senate. It’s not always numbers, but realizing where you think you might be most effective. M.A. August 6, 2019 at 4:35 pm 3 years ago I wish some of those folks in the senate were helping at soup kitchens… TB August 6, 2019 at 8:39 pm 3 years ago I generally feel more comfortable around the soup-kitchen people than those with political ambitions. Coyoty August 6, 2019 at 12:41 am 3 years ago And don’t forget about… um… (looking at archives) …Zorilla. I’m sorry, were you trying to? Jude August 6, 2019 at 2:27 am 3 years ago Nogg: That’s why I always have a coin handy to flip. Yuri: A coin?! We don’t use coins in this galaxy! Nogg: Oh, it’s just a little souvenir I picked up from Zorilla. But don’t tell him. He’s so tight-fisted, he doesn’t even want to part with a penny. ronald August 6, 2019 at 10:23 am 3 years ago Apropos of nothing, does anyone else “hear” Nogg’s voice as that of Rowlf the Dog? Daktari D August 6, 2019 at 1:11 pm 3 years ago I do now… Efogoto August 6, 2019 at 6:24 pm 3 years ago BIKKIE!!!! Peter Rogan August 6, 2019 at 9:31 pm 3 years ago Spoilermaker here. Happy endings are all well and good, but the universe is not so balanced and fair. Neat little packages tied up with bows is not how we end up, not all the time. Just as well, or we’d get bored and do something disruptive to mess things up and make them interesting again. Which is why I am cringing, as if I found a grenade with no pin in it. The situation seems to require a boom. (Covering head now) Night-Gaunt49 August 6, 2019 at 10:57 pm 3 years ago We are in a serious position here on Earth. And if we don’t rectify it we will be living on an overheated Earth maybe with an American Empire lording over it. (How did they get those space ships?) But no one will want to go there except for any species that likes it hot and wet and stormy. Think “The Drowned Earth” (1960) by J. G. Ballard for an example. Another large asteroid just popped up out of nowhere. We need a 24-7 360° eye(s) in the sky to find them and have a means of deflecting them before they hit us. Some of them have been large enough to really hurt things. Just last week one came within Luna’s orbit. One large one wouldn’t stop AGW, just suspend it while we froze and most of the plants will die out and animals and humans depending on its size when it hits. Ask Nogg about helping Earth to avoid that at least. Grace can help since every little bit aids someone.
