Star Trek, it's been taken waaaaay to seriously, it has been lampooned, it evolved. The television show that became a movement. Star Trek is almost like comfort food as I had grown up with it. Played Star Trek with my little friends. Spent a lot of time teaching my fingers to do the Vulcan symbol for "Live long and prosperous".

So here's to Gene Roddenberry and Majel Barrett.
Thanks for all the memories.

Check out todays Google and click, sometimes more than once on all the icons.

Oh and here is the funniest video/song parody of Star Trek ever. It is done by Filk singer Leslie Fish. The song is called Banned from Argo. It has suggestive lyrics so don't play this at work or go to this link if you are easily offended.

Quoting BriarCraft:
Your temp is 82 at mid-afternoon. It really is cooling down there.

So after -- how long??? -- with 100+ temps, are you wearing a sweater today?

Replacing lawn with rock or mulch, planted with some shrub robes might not be a bad idea. It could be quite attractive as well as requiring less water and TLC.

As long as you remember to set aside a special little corner for your garden pixies.



And since I know you have a few pixie friends, you might want to check out "Garden Pixies and The Spring Flower Show"
Quoting sandiquiz:
Ooh, pixies and fairies :-)

I agree with BC, you must leave room for them.


Happy Thursday - no bat cave today!

Good Afternoon G/G and A BELATED HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!

Thanks for your post left earlier this am. Thankfully, by the time that nasty storm system reached our area, late last night, it had reduced considerably into a few heavy downpours and just a few 36 mph wind gusts. It actually worked in our favor by blowing away those already fallen oak leaves and acorns from our yard. Less chores the better right now! LOL!

As far as your "big" birthday this year, I wish, at times, that I could turn the clock back a decade to my big 5-0. Currently, I'm just grateful that I made it to the big 6-0 as of January and am not yet suffering some of the physical aches and pains that can accompany it. It's fingers crossed and soldiering on to the years ahead! LOL!

I see we have some longtime Trekie fans below. LOL! To think, you must have been only 4 yrs old when the original show premiered in l966! YIKES!

Have a good day and don't work too hard!

Good morning Gardengrrl
Star Trek sure was a great series in it's time. I remember never missing episode. The stations are still showing reruns for the younger generation.
I sure hope you enjoyed your entry in the second half of a century. That sure makes you feel old eh.:)
Have a great day.

50 is good. That's half a century! Today is good. Especially when the temp is in the 70's!
So happy you're enjoying your birthday month, gg. Heck, take a few weeks extra to celebrate - you deserve it! Oh, you are, kinda, huh? Your trip is coming up fast.

It occurs to me that you might be about to put up a new blog, despite your work schedule, so I wanted to be sure to get a word in ;)

Oh, it was George Bernard Shaw who said, "Youth is wasted on the young", btw. It runs through my mind every time I talk to my nieces and nephews, LOL

Hi GG! We just don't have neat grocery stores like you guys in Texas! There is now way I would find buffalo chuck roast at any of these stores!! Glad it turned out well, I have heard they are lean so they might turn out a little dry. But a crock pot would fix that!

We are still warm, I wouldn't say hot, low 90's. But it still feels fallish, with a cooler breeze and the light is changing.

Got more worms from a friend who use to sell them. I am keeping them in my worm barrel until I can put them in the veggie gardens. Two 5 gallon buckets full of manure and worms, my gardens will love it.

Are you getting ready to go on your Disney vacation?

Hi there GG,

Glad the heat is abating, it is here, too. The last three days have been beautiful, autumnal days, blue skies, pleasant sunshine and gently warm. Long may they continue, as winter is long enough!

I like the idea of your garden makeover. I had nothing but grass out in my garden when we moved in, but slowly I have removed most of it except an handkerchief sized patch!
I put in a shrubbery, a pond, a couple of patios and a gravel garden, and once they were established they were much easier to look after than a large lawn!
Hope the last day comes and goes quickly !

Good Morning,
It is still cool in N. Texas and the plants are reviving. Still seriously considering replacing a large part of the lawn with decorative rock or that rubber mulch with a few shrub roses here and and there.

Hi Ylee, Oh today would be "Friday" if not for the extra Wednesday. Must carry on...perhaps all the way to Milos ;)

Good Morning, it's the long work week. Where do the days off go?

Hi Prose, I have been told one is supposed to celebrate 50 the entire month. Think I'll drag it in to October as well.

Hi Ylee, Beaming you up; whirrrrrrrr. Don't bring no tribbles.

Hi BC, amen to that. I forget which philospher said "Youth is wasted on the youth" ;)

On the culinary front I found a buffalo chuck roast at the store. Made for a great pot roast with very little fat. Mmmmmmm.

Ahhh, 50! If only we could combine the knowledge and wisdom of 50 with the body of 25. Wouldn't that be something? Until medical science figures out a way to make that happen, I have to say I wouldn't go back to being under 50 for any reason. 50+ feels like the best half of life to me. Hope you find that's so, as well.

Fifty is beautiful! I had a blast for my 50th! Parties at school from teachers and students, luncheons at two friend's house, a luncheon at a restaurant, and a dinner with family and close friends at a restaurant. Nice memories. Of course, I have been reciprocating when special birthdays have occurred!

Enjoy your 50th, now you are a mature, beautiful woman!

Okay, back to my own blog. Kept getting de-railed by nap-attacks yesterday.

Hi Sandi, thanks for the birthday wishes. Yes, it would be nice if we could click away the negative. Having a short fuse there is more than once I have wanted to delete a few things said after I cooled off.

Hi Prose, thanks for the morning glories. They are such an iconic flower that both paint and photo each reveal an image that is more real to our hearts than eyes.

Hi BC, wooo-hooo light and dark chocolate chips (n-dales). A girl can't have too many sweets on her birthday. Totally love how it's personalized :D

Hi Shore, thanks for the sunshine flowers. They are how I picture optimism. A grand flower that follows the sun. Thanks :)

Hi Rob, now that's funny. I love Worf. Did you know he thinks prune juice is a warriors drink? What I want to know is if he considered eating the candles while they were flaming on the cake before they said "Make a wish and blow them out?"

PUFFINS!, Hi Calpoppy, thanks for the puffin "card". Can you tell I really love those little guys?

Hi Ylee, thanks. It was a good birthday (the real one). Ate waaaay to much. Laughed a bit and spent time with people I love.

I'M 50 Ya-All!

Soon be the end of the week, for you, anyway:)

Ahhhhhg, it's 5:11am and my entire thank yous and replies up to Rob have disappeared with an errant click.
So, thank you all for the birthday wishes, I had some much more elegant, yet verbose, replies. Time to pack lunch and go to work.

I am sorry it rained for your bird walk, but did you get any photos?

Back to work? Hope it all goes well.

I had to agree with your comment on the Paralympics.
The TV coverage here has gone a long way to making the general public aware of the capabilities of those with disabilities.

Sainsbury, the large chain store here in the UK, is expected to announce on Friday a legacy investment of 800,000 pound over four years to provide training for 22,000 teachers in the UK on inclusive PE for all.

..... and as you are keeping it quiet I will whisper "happy borthday" :)

Good Morning, have to run off to work very soon. The bird walk around Lake Lewisville was very nice. It was super windy so did not see a lot of birds. The nice part is it was under 90f.

Hi Rob, Star Trek really has taken the high moral ground towards freedom and respect of others. So much packed into fictional entertainment.

Hi SP, they are over at Calpoppys disguised as puffins.

Hi LC, not surprised that series is your favorite. They did a great job of imagining what the first exploration ship would go through.

originalLT, hi,there are so many great and profound lines in all the Star Trek series. What's best is how they mixed humor with meaning. Each character so alive.

Bogon, I LOVE Galaxy Quest. Best "serious parody" movie ever. The best part, okay, one of many bests, was when the fanboy found the communicator and says, "It is real, I knew it!"

Ylee, it was some great trekkin yesterday morning.

Good Morning All, no, it's not a work day that has me up at the crack of doom, today is a birding day. Okay, weather permitting. A welcomed cold front has come through bringing some rain. Hoping it clears within the hour. Today if it doesn't get rained out is the first Lake Lewisville bird walk of the season.

Hi Sandi, yes, as a child I looked forward to watching Star Trek with Kirk, Spock, Scotty and Dr. McCoy. Really enjoyed watching McCoy and Spock culture clash and become friends.

Hi Prose, it's amazing how the show just made us drop everything and rush to the TV to see the next chapter. Of course without VCRs or On Demand (cable), it really was imperative to be there on time.

Hi BC, this was really a tearful moment during the movie. Star Trek showed us friendship, loyalty and sacrifice. It taught us a code of honor.

My favorite quote--"You may find that having, is not so pleasing a thing afterall, as wanting, it is not logical, but it is often true."--Mr. Spock. Another favorite was from Scotty.--"No sir, I will not,--I'll not lower the screens, not untill the captain tells me to."

I loved the film, The Voyage Home, and his cry of ...... "Admiral...there be whales here"!!

From Picard:

I remember how heartbroken I was when the original series was cancelled. And how many long years it was before the first movie. It's been a perennial favorite because of it's timeless insight into human nature tempered with just-plain-fun humor, spiced with adventure.

My favorite quote, which has come up more than once over the years: "I have been and always shall be your friend."

A Trekky here!

Watched every series, from the original, through Next Generation and DS9 to Voyager! I loved Bones' sense of humour! Enjoyed the love matches Kirk got himself into. I just loved John Luke and dreamt of Riker and Chakotay! I watched Wesley grow up and Seven of Nine develop into a real human, and finally revelled when a woman became in charge of the helm! Lol

And as Kirk said to Picard in the film, Generations -

"Who am I to argue with the captain of the Enterprise?"
