    The Guardian for this meeting was Adams Rubble. The comments are by Adams Rubble.

    Archmage and I discussed the weather, spreading oil and the state of the earth on this Sunday morning, Mothers' Day in the United States. Happy Mothers' Day to all mothers!

    Adams Rubble: Hello Archmage
    Archmage Atlantis: Good Day, Adams :)
    Adams Rubble: How are you today?
    Archmage Atlantis: Well, thank you......and yourself?
    Adams Rubble: I am well, thank you
    Archmage Atlantis: Quiet here so far
    Adams Rubble: yes, it is
    Archmage Atlantis: It is quite warm outside, I believe it will be in the mid 90's and humid today
    Adams Rubble: oh my. It is unseasonably cool here today
    Adams Rubble: The wind was very strong from about noon yesterday until early this morning
    Adams Rubble just heard another gust
    Adams Rubble: it was in the mid 40s this morning
    Archmage Atlantis: Hurricane season starts in 3 weeks, so gusts of wind are going to come into play if we have a bad season........and if they don't cork that well, the beaches and estuaries will be ruined, I' m afraid
    Archmage Atlantis: mid 40's sounds nice right now
    Archmage Atlantis: :)
    Adams Rubble: I haven't looked for a few days at the spreading of the oil. It is an awful situation
    Adams Rubble: Is it near you yet?
    Archmage Atlantis: Not yet, it depends on the how the prevailing wind and water currents change
    Adams Rubble nods
    Adams Rubble: a hurricane would be unpredictable
    Archmage Atlantis: It will have to move down the west side of FL to get here
    Adams Rubble: what a mess
    Archmage Atlantis: But it will ruin the seafood industry if it does, and this area has the best shrimp
    Adams Rubble: hmmmm
    Archmage Atlantis: Oh well.....it is as it will be.........
    Adams Rubble: we humans are good at making messes
    Adams Rubble: lets hope we can do something soon
    Adams Rubble: to stop it and then clean it up
    Archmage Atlantis: Well, disaster seems to be our learning mechanism.....except when we don't learn at all :)
    Adams Rubble nods
    Adams Rubble: like when we decide all the extra strorms are due to the Maya predicting the word will end in 2012 rather than a symptom of global warming
    Archmage Atlantis: Have you watched any shows about the Mayan calendar?....It's an interesting topic.....although 1984 and the millenium passed already without incident......I'm sure this will also.....it's fun in perspective tho :)
    Adams Rubble: No, I was repeating hearsay (giggles)
    Adams Rubble: The Maya had their own ecological problems though
    Archmage Atlantis: There are a couple of serious DVDs out that are informative without buying into the "prophecy"
    Archmage Atlantis: Yes, ....as we started this conversation......it takes disaster to get our attention sometimes.........civilizations seem to reach a constraint, break......then a new civilization emerges
    Archmage Atlantis: The only difference now is there are so many billions of us, and there is no where else on the planet to run to *g*
    Adams Rubble nods
    Adams Rubble: Yes, we are affecting every part of the globe
    Archmage Atlantis: nods
    Adams Rubble: The 70s dream of making the moon liveable no longer an option :)
    Adams Rubble: we'll have to fix up this place
    Archmage Atlantis: Well, dreams and fanatasies contain some seeds that have value, it just takes a while to uncover them........I like the way you said that ..."fix this place up".....like a rehab of an older structure :)
    Archmage Atlantis: I need to depart.......it has been pleasant speaking with you Adams :)
    Archmage Atlantis: Bye for now
    Adams Rubble: You too Arch. Have a good day. Hope you have some weather releif :)
    Adams Rubble: bye
    Adams Rubble: relief
    Archmage Atlantis: bye

    I waited another ten minutes and then left to do some chores in RL
