Really Ann, that is really pretty. No pretty is -- too pretty...

That grass is lovely.

Purple is the color of Emperors and it is also the main color seen in Althouse photo layouts of nature's exquisite dress and her own dress too.

Time passing.

November 22 is just another day now.

And Althouse Purple happens to be the only color of the TCU Horned Frogs that everybody is scared of playing in the upcoming BCS Bowls.

That photograph is simply stunning.

How happy is Althouse right now, huh? Huh? I mean, every nature post shouts out "I'm a woman in love". They glow.

Cheers,
Victoria

I never beleived that things get chaotic. Many thing are discernable when you can take a dispassionate and sceptical long view, and try to remove yourself and your ego from the picture.

Much like AGW.

Gleick's "Genius" was far superior to his earlier book, "Chaos". One dealt with the complexity of a very complex man, the other tried to do inflate in importance the interesting but unimportant movement of a butterfly's wings.

The German word pflücken is cognate with "to pluck" in English and kinda sounds more like another word that D.H. Lawrence made famous.

wv = mistlho Oh come on, not Christmas too.

Generally speaking, John, I could not agree with you more. I am wondering, however, how you see our current President?

Just three posts down, he is being called out rather ungraciously for just such traits.

Penny,

Thanks for reading. I wasn't making a point about Obama. But since you asked, I think our president is becomming a rather predictable fellow.

"I wasn't making a point about Obama."

But why not? I have to ask you, John, if your last comment, "I think our president is becomming a rather predictable fellow." doesn't have more to do with what you described as "the interesting but unimportant movement of a butterfly's wings."?
