Wow, the beautiful animals were the focus of the audience, not the beautiful people of campus, not the high-fashioned eqine magazines, ... anyway ... it was ALWAYS DREAMING the official line for the winning time, so to speak with the Mr. Todd ... for the claim to fame on the 143rd Kentucky "relative mudder." Many others were involved of course.
My family had horses when I was young and growing up around them was a blessing. Dad had a beautiful Morgan stallion. Mom, a gelding Tennessee Walker. When I was one I had a pony, a Welsh who had three colts. I had a feel for animals, just did not know differently. I could walk under the Walker without any troubles. The pony was a focus to ride, gentle. I learned how to give them sugar cubes, Dutch the Morgan, wilder than the others. I loved all of them, loved to run in the field with the colts. Star with his father's blaise, the Morgan, Pepi, ... . Spring and apple time were the only time to really keep a comfortable eye on Dutch (the Morgan.) Dad grew up with work horses at his uncles' farm, who raised my grandfather on the Noble farm. That is the lineage we are related to Angus Nobel apparently, Angus, Alfred Nobel's brother. Missed it by that much.
That was one of the reasons for my BA liberal arts path I focused on mathematics. I could not win the Nobel Prize in math anyway. What, ... anyway, so ...? There isn't one. John Nash/Economics is the closest thing, finding math apps in the group of the sought, treasured prizes. Recall The Beautiful Mind/Nash Equilibrium Theorem. Self-explanatory maybe? Check it out. It is a fascinating concept withother applications.
So today I spent some time with my father. He had a stack of interviewing questions that we asked each other; political systems/government/religion/philosophies/other. He got them from his sister. They seemed to be suited well to a "YouTube Basement, 'Alpine-achia'" segment. (My mom's one hundred percent Swiss, 2nd and fifth generations I believe? Close.) The questions were pretty cool like grown seeds of sophomore "lexical access drill" sessions and beyond, grown, thoughts harvested. He said he was amazed by my maturity and knowledge. I spend relatively a good amount of time studying and mostly applying "mitzvots" (promises/commandments) without getting stiff-necked, axioms and clauses, ... . It sometimes drives my friends to the rolling-eyes mode of operation. Sometimes there are interested.
Interested in the electronic publishing busines? I got a call back this week with some CD music mode work regarding graphic arts for the project; Nick Senanefes, aka the Mediterranean Cowboy, album-instrumental w.t.; Instrumentally Speaking. It is at that. Book covers differ very little from CD work, this being local. I will post some covers of sorts on the website; blog and/or gallery. Anyway it is highly recommended to check out the home business, et c of e-publishing. And KDP (Kindle Direct Publishing) is going paper too. We mostly inventoried some art and filed. I talked with some clients, consultees. I am making guitar/keyboard effects modules building to synthesizers. Someone found an old tube amp miraculously and I am to look at it, possibly restore it. Maybe something to write about, upgrade with a coauthor about mod tech that is related. I bought a bunch of switches, capicitors, other components for this "intro e-book" topic in the making. Radio Shack is closing out in town now with up to eighty percent off. In this day, especially if you are older, I would say learn to be a beginner again, do not be afraid of learning somnething new. Continuing studies are important however defined, self-curriculum and not. That is how it is today for some areas in life on life's terms
Bye-and bye for now,
