Re: the air traffic controller who let a kid do the job - kudos! he may have inspired a dream in a child. no harm done: only joy&confidence.
11:20 PM Mar 3rd via txt

Remember back when we believed that we could become anything we wanted? As adults we know we`ve been bred to be consumers, but let`s forget.
11:23 PM Mar 3rd via txt

Imagine: a pilot has a moment when hearing the child`s voice stating air traffic control commands & remembers when they first wanted to fly.
11:27 PM Mar 3rd via txt

@mattgood Ohhh... the explanation of what changes you`re going to do with the site sounds great. I`m looking forward to the members section!
2:48 PM Mar 5th via txt

@mattgood The cost would be worth it. Being a long-time reader of your blog, if I can pay that amount for my own blog or my Flickr, why not?
2:51 PM Mar 5th via txt

@mattgood I`m from the poverty stricken realm but there`s always a way to pay for what you really want somehow. & I love the social aspect.

12:18 PM Mar 14th via txt

It was a pretty day last year. I nearly followed the entire route taking pictures. Something exciting about how things stop for a parade.

Bret "The Hitman" Hart is on @thehour. When I was growing up, I had a step-bro who watched wrestling religiously & I was, by default, a fan.
11:44 PM Mar 16th via txt

For some reason, this interview is reminding me of 'The Wrestler' ! & then @strombo brings it up! Interesting to hear hint of Hitman`s view.
11:47 PM Mar 16th via txt

stopped being interested in wrestling by my teenage years but now & then when names from that era are mentioned I`m hit with some nostalgia.
