My Little Universal World

Oh the simple beauty of it. Beautiful are its lines and curves. It just makes you want to spin your top. Literally that is. I get all excited when I’m sent to the grocery store because…right next door is my favorite kind of store. The resale shop!!! Nothing delights me more than rummaging through another’s trash, to find my treasure. In the day of age when electricity and power is king I came across this little gem.
Be gone…Space Invaders…Good bye Star Wars, black holes, quantum physics be damned. Dr. Who, you and your TARDIS are no longer needed in this world.
Time and Relative Dimension in Space is sitting right here on my dining room table. Skeptical? Well here’s the proof, it does come from a different time, and it’s relative to this blog, it has dimensions in space, in this case, the dining room table. OK it’s not blue, and doesn’t make all those cool noises, but it will let me know that all is right in the world. It’s very complicated to operate. Hey! Simpleton Time Lords…My TARDIS takes a little more effort than just a simple biological imprint to operate…IT TAKES PIECES TO OPERATE!
I carefully place the pieces into the universe and…
With eager anticipation…I contemplate string theory physics…among other things like…
will the vertically spinning rotor turn on its vertical axis with enough speed and mass to influence the static position of the previous placed pieces through the equation Tp= 4 pi2 Is / Q Ts where Is is the moment of intertia, Ts is the period of the rotor, and Q is the applied torque - turning power of weight - of rotor…deep breath…in other words...Will the top knock over the pins? Whew! The result of the equation…
5 points+ 5 points + 10 points = 20 points…your turn and all will be right in the world.

The trials and tribulations

I'm back from Wisconsin after passing the torch to my sister.  A sister, unfairly guilted, arriving 3 hours later on the doorstep of her parents.  Watching parents who were once vibrant, independent, and active, change into a scared and worried couple reaching out to the threads of family which have been worn thin.  A couple, fighting fiercely, to keep the independence they once had...only to tire into dependency.  Arriving a tired wife, who missed her husband and kept the household going.  Yes, getting older has aches and pains, but pale to the trials and tribulations of those around us.

Inspiration from near and afar

My first attempt at blogging has been inspired by a friend and I might say extended family Donna O.  at  Donna and her husband Keith are organic farmers here in the midwest with a farmstore that everone should visit.  I have been there often along with her great and insightful blog.  Enough about them...but do please visit them as well as myself as much as possible.

As for the name of my blog.  Which I will get to sometime in the blog, because my mind, my life and my stride is a stroller.  I'm getting there...just not always the most direct route...As many of us have parents which are getting older and their health issues mount, I find myself up in Wisconsin again in the hospital for another family visit.  I so much enjoy the visits at their home, but more and more it seems like their are two homes.  Back to the name of the blog.  Well, here in Wisconsin, where most people hate FIBS...LOL my parents have a black squirrel that visits their apple trees in their backyard.  Spent about half an hour this morning with my aunt, that would be my mother's twin sister, watching the black squirrel eat the apples that didn't get picked from last fall.  So there it is...Mulling the thought of starting a blog for several weeks that was inspired by Donna O. at  on a trip to Wisconsin to visit my parents at their "second" home is the beginning of a Blog.  How about them apples?
