One of the comments accused me of spreading FUD over the upcoming hardfork. Hmm, someone's taking my animations a wee bit too seriously I think.
So for @noisy. This one is for you!!
And look, I am so supportive of the coming hardfork I have a special hard fork t-shirt!!
There are so many individual species of Garter Snakes and Ribbon Snakes that I'm actually not going to try to pinpoint the exact species of this one. Though I may not know exactly who it is, I do know what it is, which is absolutely striking... in more ways than one!
Anyway, this one was a real pleasure to photograph and I'm glad that our paths crossed. Check out these great photos!
Funny how these topics come together at times, sporadically... fused together through the slightest insights of the day and most random thoughts, forming a trajectory upon which a spontaneousness need for expression may exert itself in something resembling either deeply provocative intellect at its best, or borderline - if not straight up - craziness of overthinking...
Nonetheless - whatever the case may be - today, the words spew forth from my fingertips as a consequence of perhaps a combination of boredom and desire to break routine, a yearning to unleash some pent-up energy, a curiosity at what attempting to articulate upon the seeds of some thoughts regarding aspects of life, myself, reality... blah blah... without further ado...
Or at least quite a few people seemed to think so.
I haven't spent much time on St
카파도키아의 아름다운 모습을 하늘에서 구경할 수 있는 벌룬투어.
바람이 불거나 날씨가 흐리면 사고의 위험 때문에 절대 올라갈 수 없기에 그 간절함이 더 크다. 실제로 사고가 종종 일어난다.
벌룬투어를 예약한 사람들은 새벽 5시부터 대기장소에서 쿠키를 먹으며 설레는 맘으로 벌룬투어를 기다린다. 벌룬이 부풀기 시작할 즈음 각자의 벌룬 앞에서 탑승을 기다린다.
벌룬 하나에는 약 12명 정도가 탄다. 그 규모가 어마어마함을 알 수 있다.
탑승을 완료하고 점점 높이 올라가는 벌룬 바구니 안에서 다들 할말을 잃고 감탄사만 연신 내뱉는다.
난생 처음보는 황홀한 광경에 눈물을 흘리는 이들도 있다.
생각보다 훨씬 높이 올라가기 때문에 마음의 준비를 단단히 해야한다.
죽기 전에 꼭 해보아야할 것. 바로 카파도키아 벌룬투어이다.
Gapsa is beautiful. The reason of beauty is its long history. It's because the trace of time has come down on the long history. Many lives had gone with this Temple during 1700 years. Therefore I looked over the traces of time and lives in detail in every corner of this temple.
갑사는 아름답다. 갑사가 아름다운 것은 오랜 역사 때문이다. 그 오랜 역사 속에서 시간의 흔적이 내려 앉아 있기 때문이다. 1700년 동안 많은 삶들이 이 절과 함께 했을 것이다. 그래서 갑사의 구석 구석에 남아 있는 삶의 흔적과 시간의 흐름을 살펴 보았다
At first the chimney came in my eye. It is not easy to see this kinds of traditional one now days.
먼저 눈에 뜨인 것은 절의 한구석에 있는 굴뚝이었다. 아주 오래된 재래식 굴뚝은 연통은 이제 보기도 어렵다.
Under the wall there are white azaleas. It was reported that white azaleas were extincted, but they found a bunch of white aza
4시간 전 멋진 청년이 카페스튜디오제이슨에서 쵸코라떼 2잔 값을 steem으로 결재하였다.
내가 steem을 알게 된지 27일째 되는날이다.
대한민국에서 최초로 steem으로결재된곳이 우리 카페인것이 자랑스럽다.
Four hours ago, a handsome young man paid the price of a chyoko latte at a cafe in Cafe seutyudio.
It is the 27th day that I learned steem.
We are proud of our first place in the Republic of Korea for the first time in Korea.
Blockpay로 결재하려고 하였지만 잘 ~ 되지 않았다.
카페스튜디오제이슨은 언제든지 Blockpay로 결재하실수 있도록 준비된 상태이다.
We don't get to get out and explore as often as we like, especially with the new baby in tow. Today, however, we were able to get a baby sitter so we took a little journey to check out the wilderness to our north.
We didn't get to get out and explore much as we were in a bit of a time crunch, but it was still neat to see some of the sights even if from the confines of the car.
If you look very closely you can see the word "Phoenix" on the mountain pointing us the way to the city...
Can't see it?
Check out the picture below and see if it is slightly more clear...
Without that arrow showing us the way, we may never have made it home... ;)
I have a few dementia and neuroscience posts in the works but they just seem a bit grim now in light of my recent personal events.
I also wanted to say thanks to everyone for their recent words of support it. Onto the subject of today's post:
When I started writing in 1994 fear was still a very large part of the publishing industry. If a writer wanted to be a true success they were told to keep their ideas guarded. Every writer had their, “secret sauce” that they felt would make them a household name. Schools stressed the importance of copyrighting so no one claimed your ideas as their own. If you were poor, like I was, and hadn’t secured a publisher you were taught to mail your manuscript to yourself and leave the envelope unopened. This was referred to as a, “poor man’s copyright” because the postmark would prove when the work as written. The world has changed so much the fact that I even remember this makes me feel ancient.
As a result of this nonsense, paranoia wormed its way into my young and impressionable brain. It didn’t make me safer, in fact it did nothing but stifle the rate of my development. As my career slowly progressed, I learned the
We can shorten our own path to achieving the writer’s life by studying the different ways other authors have found success. Their stories can provide us with more than proven ideas, they can also provide us with much needed inspiration to persevere and keep striving for our next goal. The fact that other authors are taking charge of their futures by dreaming up new and different ways to propel their careers into the stratosphere is proof that, with ingenuity and today’s technology, anything is possible. The only limit is our imaginations.
Veronica Roth, author of the wildly successful Divergent trilogy of novels, wrote her first novel at the age of twenty-one during her senior year at Northwestern University in Chicago. She admits that she completed the first draft of the book in forty days while studying for finals. This was inspiring to me, if she could create something so successful in forty days while completing her finals
Greetings loyal followers.
Earlier this week, a leader of your people sent a transmission requesting its recipients to ask him anything.
Because I become physically ill every time I see my repulsive, fetid, and imbecilic boss, I inquired if there were any openings in upper management.
Your leader responded by asking me for
references. I did not know what those were. Apparently on your planet, it is customary for previous employers to speak on your behalf when you are seeking new employment. Because I am a genius, I deduced that this means it is also customary for employees to allow their previous employers/teachers/mentors to live. That blew my mind. How do you all not kill your bosses at some point? Perhaps there is something wrong with my communicator again because that makes absolutel

During my first year of teaching, I had the pleasure to teach a student named Bill. Bill was famous around town for memorizing every U.S. President and Vice President. All you had to do was say a number like
23 and Bill would instantly respond,
Benjamin Harrison whose Vice President was Levi P. Morton. He would always say it in that exact format, "___________ whose Vice President was ___________.
He could do the same for Oscar winners for every major category.
Did you know that All the King's Men won the Oscar for best picture in 1949?
Bill thrived on routine. One day after the dismissal bell rang, Bill stood in my doorway and said,
See you tomorrow Mr. M.
Yes you will and I'll be happy to see you.
The next day he s
Next month I am to visit Haifa in Israel, and this will be my third trip to the Holy Land, but the one thing you realise very quickly when you arrive there is the true back story to Israel.
It is of a booming modern Israeli economy and despite the recent spate of Palestinian stabbings, an almost calming peace pervades the place. This state was founded in 1948. The Zionist miracle was one of the most spectacular things of the 20th century.
Jews coming from all over the world coming to settle in this new place in the Middle East. Even today the modern Aliyah program still exists.
I think there is something revolutionary in Jewish thought. The Jewish DNA itself. I also think this is in the DNA of Israel itself. The constant search for a revolution that will improve the peace in the area despite all the governments illegal attacks.
I seriously think
전주에 오면 꼭 가보아야 할 여행지 몇 곳을 추천해 드려요! 첫 번째는 전주 효자동 근처에 위치한 전주 우쭈쭈 입니다! 이름이 다소 애들스러워서 뭐 하는 곳인가 싶었었는데 알고보니 동물 체험 퓨전 동물원 카페더군요! 들어가자마자 훅 끼치는 동물 냄새에 좀 당혹스럽기도 했지만요. 귀여운 프레리독과 친칠라, 햄스터, 다람쥐, 거북이, 뱀, 도마뱀 등등! 다양한 동물들을 체험해보며 만져볼 수 있고, 먹이까지 줄 수 있으니 재미있고 이색적인 체험이 될 것임을 확실히 보장해드립니다!
두 번째는 전주 완산공원 꽃동산입니다! 알만한 사람은 안다는 그 공원! 벚꽃, 개나리, 철쭉 등등 다양한 꽃들이 한데 피어나고, 그럴 때면 산마저 울긋불긋해진다고 하더군요! 오늘은 아쉽게도 아직 벚꽃이 피지 않아 가지 않고 건너 뛰었지만... 다음 년도에는 꼭 남자친구 휴가에 맞
I got tired of staying home and throwing myself out. I thought I would go for coffee because I did not want to go too far
This time preferred to sit out differently.
I thought it was not cold with the weather getting warmer, but after 10 minutes I found myself inside.
was be cold: D
I never really got used to this place. I started to feel like an alien myself.
Anyway, when I sat outside, I started to take a picture of the place I was sitting in. It was a bit noisy because it was so close to the street, but it was fine.
**This time I ordered something hot. The menu was almost the same as the other cafes. In the end I decided to drink Cafe
<캣우먼>으로 라디오 세상에서 여자들의 고민 상담을 들어주던 여자들의 언니로 유명한 임경선의 에세이 <태도에관하여>는 대단하지 않지만, 우리가 삶에 간과하면 안될 기본적인 삶의 태도에 대한 이야기이다.
<작가>라는 타이틀에 익숙하지 않을 때도 있다는 임경선은 2005년부터 잡지와 신문에 칼럼을 연재했고, 현재까지 9권의 에세이와 3권의 소설, 1권의 여행기를 써온 글쟁이이다. 소설이나 시 등의 정통 문학상을 수상하며 등단한 작가가 아니기에 자신을 <작가>라 칭하는 사람들에게 어쩌면 당연한 호칭이 아니라는 느낌을 받기도 하고, 또 그 호칭이 뭐라고 불러주지 않으면 <왜>에 대한 생각을 품기도 한다. 에세이를 쓴다는 것은 그만큼 글을 쓸 수 있는 소재가 다양하고 또 끊임없이 소재가 개발이 되어야 한다. 그녀가 9
Each week (assuming I'm not flailing at life) I try and make a post to keep the STEEM community up to date on what doings have gone on in my world this week as STEEM witness. It's been an exciting week for the @klye witness campaign having once again snuck into a top 20 witness position after maintaining the #21 rank for a while. It seems now as of writing this I've fallen to rank #23 which is still noteworthy! I did manage to all but replenish the STEEM from last week's power down over that past week by posting and my brief top 20 hotseat time which is awesome! 100% of this months rent, groceries and expenses were granted to me by STEEM and support offered by Steemit INC to help me continue my service development!
A new weekend has arrived
I will tell today about Turkish coffee today
Why do we make to groom salty coffee?
There is actually a lot of story. One of these:
The bride puts the salt in the coffee for give to groom. When the groom tastes coffee, he realizes that it is salty coffee, which means that if he continues to drink salty coffee, he really loves the bride-to-be. If he did not, it would mean that the grooms could not make the bride wish ..
How about some chocolate?!!
Historically, my cookie posts have not done well, I don't know why. I mean, c'mon, everybody loves cookies, right?
Even though I have had the best of luck with my cookie posts, I couldn't help posting these.
The pictures turned out very well, so I just had to share.
These cookies actually have 4 types of chocolate in them, but 'Quadruple' just doesn't have the same appeal in a title, or at least I don't think so, how about you?
