Zumbol waving his hand towards the starship's view screen: That's Sol-3. What the local inhabitants call Earth. Give me a moment to connect to the planetary computer network and find that video for you.
Kertac: It's beautiful. Look at all the water!
Zumbol poking at the ship's control panels: Yeah. Over 70% of the planet's surface area is water.
Having recently moved I am still sans TV. I've got two of them actually but they are older models in need of a digital converter which I do not have.
Apparently I am not prioritizing my life correctly.
As a result of this major fault of mine it has finally come home to roost. The consequence being realized. I completely missed the super bowl event.
The Ebola pandemic outbreak in Africa is yet another example of American exceptionalism. The international community is starting to respond with aid and support for the infected countries in an effort to stop the ebola pandemic before it goes global.
Years ago I had recently moved from the country into the inner city. I also had recently lost a dog of mine in the country. In the inner-city I did not replace the dog. I felt it was no place for a dog as they need space to run and roam freely.
One day I get a phone call from my sister. She had found an abandoned stray pup trying to survive at a convenient store waste stream. Of course puppies do their thing with us she got all protective wanting to help a distressed baby and put the grabs on him. Would I take him in and take care of him was the question on the phone.
NO!!! I am inner-city now no proper place for the spirit of a dog. Please? No!! No.. No.. No!! Final!
