  1. notice to everybody

    My grandmother is rapidly going down hill, health wise, and I'll be needing to help take care of her, probably for the rest of her life.

    I probably won't be able to post on this board for the rest of my grandmother's life, however long that is going to be.

    IF I'm able to post on here at all during this time, it won't be very often.

    My grandmother is getting ready to move in with my mother and myself.

    My grandmother's husband passed away ...

  2. moderation part 2

    Since posting the moderation blog, I've given the whole issue a lot of thought.

    I've concluded that not only is it a mistake to go to either extreme, it's also a mistake to lean too far either way. One has to walk a very fine line.

    A lot of what's wrong with my life right now is absolutely my own fault. To me, there is ZERO question about that.

  3. moderation

    I don't remember doing a blog on this before.

    There is a verse about being cold or hot, not lukewarm.

    A lot of people seem to interpret this as saying never to use moderation in anything. I don't think this is what the verse is saying.

    I DO think using moderation in some things is the right thing to do.

    Some people go to the extreme of taking the stance that everything wrong in their life is OTHER peoples' faults, that they themselves aren't ...

  4. research on various things

    Research on Tibet and Tibetans is very frustrating.

    I'm reading kind of contradicting information on whether or not there is a single language called Tibetan or a group of related Tibetan languages.

    -

    Research on Nepal is going VERY slowly.

    -

    If anything, research on Bhutan is going even slower.

    -

    Not much progress in doing research on Taiwanese Aborigines.

  5. finished reading Mathematics: The Loss Of Certainty

    I finished reading Mathematics: The Loss Of Certainty.

    What I get out of it is, in the past a lot of mathematicians did a lot of very sloppy work.

    This, of course, made a lot of later mathematicians- who had to attempt to clean up their mess- very angry at them.

    I have to wonder if today's world would be far more advanced technologically if those mathematicians had simply done things like they were supposed to do.
