About Me

Do not go gentle into that good night, Old age should burn and rave at close of day; Rage, rage against the dying of the light. Though wise men at their end know dark is right, Because their words had forked no lightning they Do not go gentle into that good night. Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay, Rage, rage against the dying of the light. Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight, And learn, too late, they grieve it on its way, Do not go gentle into that good night. Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay, Rage, rage against the dying of the light. ~~~~~~~~~ For, it ends in the blink of an eye. Carpe Diem (Seize the day)!

The Scream

I was walking along a path with two friends the sun was setting suddenly the sky turned blood red I paused, feeling exhausted, and leaned on the fence there was blood and tongues of fire above the blue-black fjord and the city my friends walked on, and I stood there trembling with anxiety and I sensed an infinite scream passing through nature.
Edvard Munch, 1893

That was awesome!

We picked Muscadines to make jam.

What do the scores tell me?

In order to provide you with a meaningful comparison, the scores you received have been converted to "percentile scores." This means that your personality score can be directly compared to another group of people who have also taken this personality test.
The percentile scores show you where you score on the five personality dimensions relative to the comparison sample of other people who have taken this test on-line. In other words, your percentile scores indicate the percentage of people who score less than you on each dimension. For example, your Extraversion percentile score is 70, which means that about 70 percent of the people in our comparison sample are less extraverted than you -- in other words, you are rather extroverted. Keep in mind that these percentile scores are relative to our particular sample of people. Thus, your percentile scores may differ if you were compared to another sample (e.g., elderly British people).

I'm a O95-C97-E70-A83-N5 Big Five!!

A funny thing happened at CVS last night.

At around 7pm at least 30 ducks waddled into the store like they owned the place.

One worker tried to scare them out with a mop, but in the end it was the toffee flavoured snack that made the ducks go quackers and leave.

A quick-thinking employee of the New York store resorted to enticing the game birds out of the shop with some microwave popcorn.

It is not clear whether the ducks settled their bill before leaving.

Let's hope that it was a very bad hoax.

Thanks Crewleader ... Wish I had more time to decorate.

That's a DUZY.

Would you run like the guys @ :42 ?


I was born down south 65 years ago.
