: So how much longer may I expect this wonderful wierdness to
: continue? Is it planning to get much wierder????????????

When the going gets wierd,the wierd turn pro!
My life lately feels like the last time I was swimming off Zuma Beach
on the day there were eruptions in Hawaii. Got sucked out in a strong
undertow (passion for henna research) and spent hours working through
monster wave after wave trying to get back to dry sand (plowing
through article after article, writing, and the library loads keep
hitting me like 12 foot swells ..... dive under and hold your breath
and hope you come up on the other side!).

This morning's run .......... tracing henna growth patterns in
southern Spain between 1150 and 1550 .. to verify that henna was
being grown in Spain during the "Little Ice Age" that had northern
Europe suffering evil cold weather due to a NAO variation (rather than
being imported from North Africa) .... and found that 300 lb of henna
seed was on a boat out of Valencia in 1475. If they've got that much
seed going out .... there musta been a henna bush in Spain somewhere
in 1475!

All last summer was my near lifetime high water mark for deep
wierdness and it's settling down a bit .... lord I hope so! There
were days I just wanted to hide in an airport lady's room cubicle with
the door shut just so for a few precious moments that nothing bizarre
was going to come demanding my attention.
