I love all the stories in this book, and have read some of the stories several times, either in whole or in part. He is just remarkable. I am especially fond of his description of drownings. They are lovely (!), and you should read this book.
Ronny me and my dad love the show and i hate the fact that it is only on Monday and i was kind of sad when the first season ended and then now it is the second i was jumping for joy when it came on u should have it on tv more it is a good show. and i was thinking one of theses times i would love to pay for my dad and me to come and see u guys for his birthday he would love it. maybe i can get the money around and we could see you guys. :)
Thanks, Eric. Your point about Jesse and the magnet idea is a good one, but I still have a hard time believing Mike wouldn't kill Walter, as close as he's come before. He may like Jesse, but he REALLY doesn't like Walter. That scene on the desert road seemed like melodramatic fluff to me. I had other quibbles that I didn't want to mention because I didn't want to commit a "spoiler" -- like the contents on the laptop not being immediately viewed by Hank. Anyway, in the bigger picture, my initial reactions will probably seem even more nitpicky as the season continues, and I have reason to hope so -- the second episode is really gripping, and some dodgy stuff is (sort of) explained away.
All the works were interesting, but the stencils were beautiful. As a craftsman, I sometimes tire of "high art" and want to see some kind of effort and skill put forth by the maker. After wandering through CAM and rolling my eyes quite a bit, the Make Ends Meet show was especially satisfying to me.
Coming up with the general idea to use a magnet isn't "scientifically clever." I watched this in a room full of random non-science-y people, and three of the four of us said "How about a magnet?" before Jesse said it. Besides, Jesse may be generally dimwitted, but he's been shown before to actually have some aptitude for science - the show has commented on this several times (usually through Walt).
On the subject of Mike, the character contortion would be if he DIDN'T have a soft spot for Jesse. This has been painstakingly set up. He's a grandfather. He feeds chickens. Mike is a professional killer and in some respects a cold guy, but I can easily believe that he has a certain softness and decency to him, and that he feels some affection for this knuckleheaded, damaged kid dragging along in Walt's undertow.
You guys have the best show on tv. Keep up the good work and be careful.
Andy brought small-town humor and life into the homes of every American through their television screens. He’ll be missed after his long and full career of entertainment which still fills many households like my own family’s. I created a portrait of Andy and Don Knotts for my Cult of Personality series a few years back, which depicted entertainers who influenced my life in one capacity or another. I shared work of art today on my artist’s blog at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2012/07… Feel free to drop by and share your own memories of growing up with Mayberry.
"The Andy Griffith Show" was a show that spoke to the importance of family, despite the fact that none of the families portrayed on the show were by any means ordinary. Whether it was confirmed bachelor Barney Fife or Andy's own unique family arrangement, all the show's disparate characters were involved in atypical families - Families that were defined and bound by the overall neurotic town of Mayberry. This simple fact makes "The Andy Griffith Show" groundbreaking for it's time, as it showed that the "nuclear family" could also be re-purposed as a "nuclear community"... Mayberry is a town that was once described by Andy as a "normal town bordered by a ring of insanity". It is a show that is imminently watchable, timeless in it's humor and humility, and as funny and chaotic as it was poignant and empathetic. What it was, Was Fantastic....
R.I.P. Andy Griffith. You and Don Knotts can now sit a spell and catch up.

A tractor cozy? Hell, a BUILDING cozy! I have GOT to get my girlfriend down to see this... she'll go nuts for it.
Really looking forward to this!
Amy you are absolutely beautiful as a person and with your hubby. I love this show I love it. I laugh constantly when watching. Staged or not we need some laughter in this world. Good to know Ron is a Pastor lovin that. I do need to say one of the reasons I watch the show is the "mans, man Bobby, I'm not kidding and have never done this before I have a mad crush on that country boy. I would love to chat with him sometime, I am not some crazy person I am a beautiful woman, with a good heart, and just love watchin him, I know he is a good person, just watching him. The temper, is that real? hey, we all get worked up sometimes. I am serious I truly am not some freak I just think you all are fun and I do love watching the show. I am going to try and email and give you my email and maybe Bobby will email, really I would just enjoy talking to him.
Thanks for the entertainment, love ya all. Carol from Washington State.
I just discovered your show last night and found it highly entertaining. I love y'alls Southern accent and Southern way of talking.
Then I find out y'alls last name is Shirley. So is mine. Now, I realise it is highly doubtful we are directly related, it is possible that we may have a common ancestor and I am interested in pursuing that possibility.

Memsy, I had the great pleasure of dining with your uncle once, at his house on Cornwallis, when my friend Daniel was serving as his assistant. To this day I remember the evening, and the vague sensation I had that I was "swimming a bit beyond my depth," as the conversation about literature, history, art and current events swirled around me.
I do remember, however, holding my own on the point that for some people, due to genetics, cilantro (we had burritos for dinner) tastes of dishwashing liquid. :-)
I share your desire to have questions answered, so I'm sure you will answer this simple question.
Are you affiliated with the environmental group NC-20 in any way?
Characterizing me as a denier, still doesn't answer my question.
I asked the CRC for the answer and was ignored by the Science Panel .
I asked an Educational Institution if there was a comparison survey, and if not , please do one. They declined.
I have asked for an Open Public Forum to discuss. They have refused.
No one in any media post has answered the question.
Am I supposed to just shut up and blindly accept what the experts say?
Following is link to book by Dr. Stann Riggs, ECU on SLR Drowning the NC coast.
Please show me the comparisons of 1850's US Coast Survey surveys with today's surveys in the Book (or any other report) ; and, with 2 foot SLR since 1850 (as asserted by the science panel), show me the 4 miles , or 2 miles or even 1 mile of inundation that, according to the Scientists, must have occurred. ( Differentiation between Erosion/ Accretion by currents, dredging and wind waves is asserted. )
I can't see it.
True science is important, and we need the answers.
I hope many of you come see this excellent show!!
John Droz is on the BOD of NC 20 as their " Science Advisor" .
That BOD also has a Bill Price listed with out any title given.
The sound you hear is their credibility flying out the window.
The exhibit (book, photographs, and broadsides) is up through June 30. Regular foyer gallery hours are Fridays from 11-2, Saturday mornings from 9-Noon, and by appointment at dave at horseandbuggypress.com
We will be having our monthly open studios on Friday, June 15 from 6-9pm as part of Third Friday Durham (www.durhamthirdfriday.com)
Big thanks and appreciation to Chris Vitiello and The Independent for helping to spread the word about this book and exhibit. I look forward to sharing Courtney's important work with visitors at our Foster Street studio.
In an attempt to make the book, and spending slow reading time with Courtney's work, as accessible as possible, I've decided to make copies of Maji Moto available on a one week loaner basis. Contact me for details.

You have been posting this thread about the NC Tidelands not inundating on all sorts of threads about sea-level rise. Just saying you've "looked" at some maps from the 1850's and they don't seem to show any inundation doesn't make the statement valid. The North Carolina Division of Coastal Management has mapped shoreline change through recorded history based on historical nautical charts, topo, and orthophotos. I would suggest you actually look at those historical shoreline maps that are readily available online before you continue to post this. There's absolutely no doubt that tidelands are being inundated.
I'm a physicist (just like Dr. Hansen) and this article is overloaded with misinformation and biases. It is an advertisement for a political agenda, and should be identified as such.
The simple fact is that as the public gets more educated about the SCIENCE they will grasp the idea that AGW is an unproven hypothesis.
