    Riddle Sideways: Howdy Adams
    Riddle Sideways: was looking the other way
    Adams Rubble: you look cold
    Riddle Sideways: was cold, so put on an ugly sweater
    Riddle Sideways: tis the season
    Adams Rubble: we had three snowstorms in a row last week
    Adams Rubble: most of it is gone now
    Riddle Sideways: how did you know who this was? the sunglasses disquise
    Adams Rubble tired of winter
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Riddle Sideways: already tired?
    Adams Rubble: yes
    Riddle Sideways: you tire easily
    Riddle Sideways: try to remember, the kind of February
    Riddle Sideways: not quite the right song
    Adams Rubble: it went from a deep reddish brown as dominant color to white just like that
    Riddle Sideways: click

    Adams Rubble has been listening to the Bible read by David Suchet in Audible
    Adams Rubble: about halfway through Numbers
                   --BELL--
    Riddle Sideways: hmmm, never thought to listen to Bible
    Adams Rubble: I would not recommend it :)

    Riddle Sideways: hey, just noticed Eliza plot
    Riddle Sideways: thought it was a trick of sunset
    Riddle Sideways: or leaves turning
    Riddle Sideways: looks to be on fire
    Riddle Sideways: from here the tree limbs are lit

    Riddle Sideways: oh... here is ummm a fire url
    Riddle Sideways: https://bigsurkate.blog/2017/12/18/t...5-17-12-18-17/
    Riddle Sideways: might not leave it in the log
    Adams Rubble has been watching the Santa barbara situation with concern
    Riddle Sideways: yes, have too
    Adams Rubble: I do not understand the map
    Riddle Sideways: since the start in Ventura
    Riddle Sideways: somebody put each days fire map into a slide show
    Riddle Sideways: there is a date written on it
    Adams Rubble: I see the fire spread OK but do not have a reference point for the map as a whole
    Adams Rubble: fire spread rapidly
    Riddle Sideways: those high winds
    Riddle Sideways: in the back country
    Riddle Sideways: then into the cities
    Adams Rubble: Are the ferocity of the fires related to human activity?
    Adams Rubble: like Eucalyptis trees?
    Riddle Sideways: some
    Adams Rubble: did the native americans before the Spanish have fires like this?
    Riddle Sideways: this year they are hitting cities/developments
    Adams Rubble: they would not have been able to flee
    Riddle Sideways: always had fires, but not sure how big
    Riddle Sideways: the Redwood tree seeds do not germinate without fire
    Adams Rubble: now that the light has come on, I just realized how huge that sweater is
    Riddle Sideways: some other forest management is not done without natural fires
    Adams Rubble: the pines in the Pine Barrens are like that--need fire

    Riddle Sideways: yes, not really the right size
    Adams Rubble: all you need is a helmet to play football
    Riddle Sideways: aunt marthy's heart is in the right place, but her tastes are not
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Riddle Sideways: plus, am not good at getting dressed

    Riddle Sideways: enough of this, back to the Bible
                   --BELL--
    Riddle Sideways: why would you not advise the listen?
    Adams Rubble: I found the fight between God and the Pharoah quite childish
    Adams Rubble: lots of people getting hurt while these two stroking their egos
    Adams Rubble: God hardening the heart of Pharoah so he can make life more miserable for Egyptians
    Adams Rubble: might consider that this is the price of holding people in slavery but God condones slavery for Israelis
    Adams Rubble: through Leviticus and Numbers Moses is always stroking God's ego
    Adams Rubble: Don;y kill them because it will make you look bad
    Adams Rubble: people will talk
    Riddle Sideways: ㋡
    Adams Rubble: I read the Bible through when a teenager but when readintg it one tends to skip over portions
    Adams Rubble: when listen, hear everything
    Riddle Sideways: true
    Riddle Sideways: and not stopping to think only on one passage
    Adams Rubble: then there are all the rules
    Adams Rubble: and very repetetive
    Riddle Sideways: oh dear, those sections
    Riddle Sideways: long lists
    Adams Rubble: we would all be dead if we got stoned for blashemy
    Riddle Sideways: if read to you, real fast ...
    Adams Rubble: no one to stone
    Adams Rubble: yes, especially repetetive parts
    Riddle Sideways: that was Riddle's portion
    Adams Rubble: Kept thinking of CS Lewis's dufflepods
    Riddle Sideways: almost did the speech on how to get stoned
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Adams Rubble: did not realize it was that kind of stoning :)
    Adams Rubble: that changes things
    Riddle Sideways: it wasan't, but words get co-opted
    Riddle Sideways: remember when gay was happy
    Adams Rubble: ohh and the Israelis constantly compalining about how they had life good in Egypt and Moses led them out to die
    Adams Rubble: that's the duffle[od part
    Adams Rubble: Moses had his hands full
    Riddle Sideways: those ungrateful kids
    Riddle Sideways: lots of that
    Riddle Sideways: 2 entire tribes, poof
    Riddle Sideways: 40 years in a desert with only the best mana to eat
    Adams Rubble: yes, where's the beef
    Riddle Sideways: not much mention that there were some other people already living in the promised land
    Riddle Sideways: getting it ready for them
    Adams Rubble: yes, God warned them not to make friends with those people--they all had to die
    Adams Rubble has something like 73 hours left to go
                   --BELL--
    Adams Rubble: Ohh, I did learn something I did not know...the benediction comes from Numbers
    Adams Rubble: 24“ ‘ “The Lord bless you and keep you; 25the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; 26the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.” ’
    Riddle Sideways: ok, was looking that up
    Adams Rubble: I always thought that was beautiful
    Adams Rubble: Numbers 6
    Adams Rubble: and the Golden Rule was in there somewhere
    Riddle Sideways: and the 633 rules
    Adams Rubble: oh my yes
    Adams Rubble 's head spinning
    Riddle Sideways: and the 10 commandment laws rules in a couple times
    Adams Rubble: yes
    Riddle Sideways: worded ever so slightly differently
    Adams Rubble: but God tells Moses the 633 before getting to the ten
    Adams Rubble: was not room on the tablets for all of them
    Adams Rubble: the Babylonians had clay tablets and could have done it
    Adams Rubble: any way, now you know why I would not recommend it
    Riddle Sideways: ㋡
    Adams Rubble: but hope to keep going
    Riddle Sideways: somebody else reading to you is fun also
    Adams Rubble: oh yes
    Riddle Sideways: how many hours is it?
    Adams Rubble: and reading to others is fun
    Adams Rubble: I don't remember the whole but I am at least halfway through Numbetrs and there are 73 to go
    Riddle Sideways: is it that King James version?
    Riddle Sideways: and not just the 5 books?
    Adams Rubble: hehe, I think so but am not sure
    Adams Rubble: whole Bible
    Riddle Sideways: controversy over how many books are in a Bible
    Adams Rubble: 66
    Riddle Sideways: 5
    Riddle Sideways: :}
    Adams Rubble: It is the NIV= New International Version
    Adams Rubble: ohh, just saw controversy-- not sure of this includes the Apochrapha

    Riddle Sideways: :( December is the last page of the entire year of B.Kilban calendar over the monitor
    Adams Rubble: "and God saw the dogs and declared them an abomination"
