    Delicious Air, book of the year in 2007, awarded by the Conference of Christianity and Literature.

    It would seem that she has a very accomplished attitude toward things of God and nature. A true mark of a singular but important rudiment of Stoicism but again, it is just a name which applies to a philosophical attitude.

    I see Amazon has some kindle offers for a couple of her books. After reading a few reviews, I think I might order at least one of them in the near future. Perhaps, tomorrow.

    Tania would appreciate that, Bobby! She gets royalties from the sale of her publications.

    Here she is showing her success as a target shooter:

    Stoicism is washing-up for a lifetime without a murmur.

    That's not just ANY wolf, Bobby...It was modeled and preserved from the famous Tundra, who lived in the San Diego Wolf Preserve for many years.

    As for Stoicism...I would rather view the Great Nebula in Orion. (M42 in the Messier
    Catalogue of heavenly bodies.)

    Bobby...your reference to my cleaning toilets was an unwarranted smear.

    Here's what I really did in my 36 years as a Lab Test Engineer:

    Wind Tunnel work
    Altitude Chamber work
    Anechoic Chamber work
    Environmental Lab work
    Antenna Range work
    Gunnery Range work

    For these duties I was required to have a Government Secret Clearance, which I maintained until retiring.

    I also had a Ham Radio Operators license. (N6CEY)

    So please don't insinuate that I was a Charwoman while at Mcdonnell-Douglas and Boeing.

    My BSEE had no Toilet Bowl course requirements.
