You are on the money.. Every time a volcano erupts, it, as you stated spews out more green house gases, than we have since we learned how to make fire.

Something that no one mentions is that the primary green house gas is water vapor, we live on a water world.

What is the primary source of CO2..it is the ocean.

But other than that how how is your spring so far..?

I have more cold and snow in my forecast. But no appreciable snow accumulation predicted, so that may qualify, at leas this year for spring.

When I made my evening rounds last nightit was warm enough that I heard the frogs croaking.

Our local meteorologists are saying we should be getting our usual spring temps in a week or so, but I have my doubts. Still very little from the Cardinals.

The Granddaughter is anxious to get back to shooting and I have to take my 50 year old snow blower apart to see if I can find someone to make me a new drive shaft. The schedule is filling up.

We get some days over 100 degrees, but the humidity is almost always high enough to suffocate you in the summer. That may be why Ohio wines are getting so popular.

If you drink enough wine you do not notice the humidity.. :)

It can get to well above 100 here, down on the flat not so hot up here in the mountains, but when the temperature goes up the humidity goes down, not to uncommon to see it as low a 15%. When it get that low you have to be careful about shuffling your feet or you might make a spark.

John, That may be part of my problem, I don't drink. I love grapes, grape juice, jelly and etc. but I have never cared for anything with even a hint of alcohol in it. I keep hearing about Ohio wines winning big prizes and it makes me want to try some, but deep down I know better.

Lynn, I read in the paper this morning that a law officer in Pennsylvania had put up a "wanted poster" for Punsutawney Phil for deception. Claimed the 6 weeks of winter had expired and it was still winter.

From the time that humans developed agriculture, they have been making "adult" beverages. A natural part of the human digestive process produces a certain amount of alcohol.

If you look a places like France and Italy where they consume quite a bit of wine, the national average of heart disease is considerably lower than other countries.

Back in the day when I was a policeman I used to testify as an expert witness on the pharmacology and toxicology of alcohol.

A certain amount is beneficial, but the old adage applies.."all things in moderation"..!

Before I moved up here in the mountains, my next door neighbor was a retired medical examiner. I used to consult with him on cases. During one of our conversations he told me that he did his internship in Chicago. They did autopsies on "winos" that had succumbed to the truly brutal Chicago winters. His comment about that was, that their circulatory systems were just perfect, no plaque, in their arteries, however their livers were about to "explode".. Again moderation in all things..

John, I'd always heard about how drinking a beer a day was good for you, or other alcoholic beverages if you chose to, and as you said the key was "moderation". My problem was the taste of them.

When the wife and I would be out working in the blistering heat we'd come in and she'd grab a cold beer. I'd look at it with the condensation running down the side and looking so tempting and I had to take a drink, it was nasty. It's just my taste buds I guess.

Definitely an acquired taste.

I digress a bit here, "But".. The ancient Egyptians were fond of their beer, the first recorded labor strike in history, was in Egypt. The workers that were building the Ramesseum, a temple to Pharaoh Ramesses the 2nd. went on strike, because they were not getting the beer, fish and bread, that had been promised in their contracts.

There are supplements you can take so you do not have to drink any of that "nasty" stuff, but get the same benefit.

John, I've had plenty of family members that drank a lot, from beer to white lightning. I guess I didn't inherit the gene.

Back to the Spring topic, I heard a few Cardinals doing a mating call today and even saw a Red Wing Blackbird. I'm hoping Spring is coming.
