No, I am not Bear Grylls, but I stayed at a Holiday Inn Express last night and Bear was there too!

Thanks. Fleda is a beautiful character, inside and out. She plays the role of the female geek often found in animated programs which I chose for my avatar since I fit that trope.

My avatar is me, probably 48 years ago, and given the flipflops and trees in the background, not too far from Ft. Lauderdale.
The quotation was something nonsensical from a TV show I saw, recovering from surgery.

My avatar is me getting a thorough sinus irrigation while kayaking the South Fork Payette River in Idaho. I believe the photo was taken Summer 2011. During the summer I probably spend as much time on the Payette River System as I spend sleeping, so the avatar fits!

My name here is related to hobby number one: Amateur Astronomy; hence the avatar is the emission nebula IC 1396, which is found in Cepheus, the king one of the circumpolar constellations. The bright red star (barely visible) in the lower left is the Garnet Star. My birthday is in January and the birthstone of January is the garnet. So, yes January has a birth star as well, but I do not believe in astrology.

You can find the garnet star "naked eye" in fairly dark skies by locating Cepheus. To locate Cepheus use the guide stars to the north star (Polaris) trace a line from these stars at the end of the Big Dipper’s bowl, past Polaris, and you'll arrive at the top of Cepheus. The constellation Cepheus takes the form of a simple house (a triangle on top of a square) and the star that you have just found is the top of the house. The Garnet Star is almost straight through and would make the porch of the house. Sitting just next to (east of) King Cepheus is his wife, Queen Cassiopeia. Most often, Cassiopeia is identified by her “W” or “M” shape.

The Garnet Star is also know as Herschel's Garnet Star and the alternative name is Erakis. Possibly the source of the name Arrakis, the spice planet in the Sci-Fi book Dune.

Also Idaho's gemstone is the garnet and I live in Idaho.

Take care,

Um ... I'll bring a laser if we ever meet and you can point it out. You lost me at Big Dipper. I'm just happy I can name 4 constellations. It makes me feel that my Boy Scout merit badge wasn't a total waste!

Avatar is huck, a deeply introspective and spiritually advanced chinese shar pei; kids in er's have been called me nursemike for decades and I grew to like it; laws of thermodynamics control all survival projects-and I think its a heinlein quote, whose tunnel in the sky and farnham's freehold were early influences.
