Shade is good. We like shade. I'm waiting for the trees to start with the leaves already, except I know that we'll get at least two more spring heavy snows if weather patterns hold good (not necessarily so these days), so maybe it's good they haven't leafed out yet, it just means more broken branches. Don't have any shade for noon time, though, drat it.

You've probably read about voudon . . when Legba or one of the other orishas is aboard one has to divide conciousness. What comes forth is something different.

Anxiety (here, about backing) is normal. Can't see. Have to feel it, a form of conciousness expansion.

Angela Gheorghiu said it this way (about oppression):

"Because I grew up in a country where there was no possibility of having an opinion, it makes me stronger now. Lots of singers are frightened about not getting invited back to an opera house if they speak out. But I have the courage to be, in a way, revolutionary. I want to fight for opera, for it to be taken seriously. Pop music is for the body, but opera is for the soul.".

Have to let go. Some visualize it (from above). Some, like me, feel a bass beat. Something arises that can do it. Has to swing.

Popular music isn't worth much in too many ways to list, but when it's right, it's just right.

Choose well.

I have thought about making a trailer walker for myself. It wouldn't be hard to make. For that matter one probably shows up on eBay now and then. Can't see going into another manufacturing business. Been there, done that--too many headaches. And if the trailer walker ever caught on, next thing somebody would be making them in China and retailing them for less than our cost for the materials.

Something else I have thought about is a hand steered trailer dolly powered by a small electric motor. It would get its power from the trailer umbilical cable, which would also give us a connection to the electric trailer brakes.

Been dreaming up a business plan for the bear urine business. I guess first thing we would have to get it approved by the FDA. Would take a double-blind experiment whereby we would douse half our subjects with our patented organic bear pee and half with a placebo--such as the hot dog juice suggested over on the "bear" thread--and expose both populations to hungry bears. If fewer of our bear pee subjects were mauled than the control group, we would have a winner. (Might be hard to find experimental subjects, though.)

Then there's the problem of finding a clean trademark, harder than most people realize these days. The ursine urine business is already crowded.

Backing up

Just keep practicing you'll get it, The funny thing I'm noticing is my wife, her brother and her Dad all cringe at backing up. All of them are lawyers. Maybe the ingrain fear of litigation. Boy, three attorneys in one family. It dosen't get much more dysfunctional than that. I hope I don't have to do much camping with them this summer.

Dan, you are a very lucky man having 3 lawyers in the family. Of course, getting them to agree on anything must be interesting.

Specially if they want to stay in practice.

Burine

Gene, I'ts ok. My FIL has been semi retired for years and her brother took over his practice years ago. My wife has a one women office and most of her work is with non-profits which translates into plenty of Pro Bono. I retired last year at 60and got very bored this winter. I like the bear urine idea. "BURINE"tm would be a hit. I know a few guys in TV production who could produce a half hour informercial for me. If Ron Popill can sell spray paint for bald spots "BURINE"tm should fly off the shelves.

I like the name, BURINE—for the unnecessarily queasy, they won't know what it really is. Nuvi, are you listening? The production process (beer to bear to urine) needs to be patented. I wonder if bears can be trained to be spotters for backing? Maybe the BURINE production facility can also be an Airstream CG?

Burine is good--I like it! And, amazingly, nobody is already using it. (Although we'll probably get a lawyer letter from Prestige Brands.)

Don't think there's any patentable subject matter in the production process. Chemical processes are frequently protected as trade secrets, of which I am sure we will have many by the time the details have worked out. Training inebriated grizzly bears to pee in a container may have a steep learning curve.

Having the bears also serve as spotters in the Bear Back campground might be a little dicey. I see some potential liability issues even without getting into BUI (Backing Under the Influence).

What do you mean nobody is using it? Look at the time of my posts last night. I'll share though.
