    Who I'd most like to meet from DZ.com

    BIGUN. Miss your wisdom & wit. And the last few years have been an *awesome* ride that many times I would have liked to have 'heard' your perspective. Marg Act as if everything you do matters, while laughing at yourself for thinking anything you do matters. Tibetan Buddhist saying

    At what point...

    For me, I make a change when I’m unhappy more than 50% of the time (about whatever). It’s a subjective system but works for me. I left the company I co-founded in April 2003 (got bought out) not knowing exactly what I was going to do next. For my next job I moved 2250 miles across country knowing noone in the new town and initially took a 70% pay cut. I've pursued my passion to places, experiences, and successes that I would never have imagined if someone had posed the notional scenario to me 10 years ago.

    Teddy Bears on Ice

    Very cool! And perhaps more beneficial than an octopus. Go Wings. Marg Act as if everything you do matters, while laughing at yourself for thinking anything you do matters. Tibetan Buddhist saying

    Avatar (Movie)??

    The IMAX theater at which we saw it, Mall of Georgia, wanted them back. There was a recycling bin for the RealD glasses where I saw it in RealD, Atlantic Station; but most folks (myself included) kept them. /Marg Act as if everything you do matters, while laughing at yourself for thinking anything you do matters.

    Avatar (Movie)??

    Concur w/r/t the yellow IMAX 3D glasses. The RealD 3D glasses look/felt like regular (albeit cheap) sunglasses. Since they don't actually block UV rays, there's a disclaimer/warning to not wear them as sunglasses. /Marg Act as if everything you do matters, while laughing at yourself for thinking anything you do matters.

    FDNY vs OFD Hockey benefit game!

    Would be fun if I was closer (actually I think I will be closer, just not that close, on the 6th - Phoenix ). Altho' I'd probably root for New York's Bravest. /Marg Act as if everything you do matters, while laughing at yourself for thinking anything you do matters. Tibetan Buddhist saying

    Is it cold where you are?

    Thanks! Have another one. It's still cold here. Thanks for posting pics from where you are. Oh my! That's a lot of snow! By comparison - snow in ATL. /Marg Act as if everything you do matters, while laughing at yourself for thinking anything you do matters. Tibetan Buddhist saying

    Food you'll never forget?

    Your post reminded me of a favorite from when/where I grew up: Stroh's Blue Moon ice cream.

    Food you'll never forget?

    I was in Moscow for my 30th birthday. I had the best birthday cake of my life. Don't know where the folks that hosted my birthday dinner got it, but it was amazing. The closest flavor that I would associate was orange creamsicle. Had a rose water lassi at a Middle Eastern restaurant in Dearborn Michigan that I've never found an equal to. Perfect balance of sweet and tangy with the unexpected rose water. Luv mango lassis but that rose water one was the best. Ted Drewes frozen custard in St Louis is pretty awesome. (Much, much, much better than Imo's pizza, imo.) /Marg Act as if everything you do matters, while laughing at yourself for thinking anything you do matters. Tibetan Buddhist saying

    I could use a few prayers...

    My condolences. /Marg Act as if everything you do matters, while laughing at yourself for thinking anything you do matters. Tibetan Buddhist saying

    Is it cold where you are?

    Oooh that looks like fun! I've been out to Ouray a few times ice climbing. If you're interested in learning, that's a great place to start. They 'farm' the ice out there. Lots of routes of varying difficulty. Ice rocks. /Marg Act as if everything you do matters, while laughing at yourself for thinking anything you do matters. Tibetan Buddhist saying

    Is it cold where you are?

    I remember one winter, 1999 I think, when I was living in downstate Illinois. One morning it was 50 degrees warmer than it had been 24 hours before. And it was only, 25°F the 2nd morning. /Marg Act as if everything you do matters, while laughing at yourself for thinking anything you do matters. Tibetan Buddhist saying

    Is it cold where you are?

    Yes. And it’s snowing, i.e., barely perceptible flakes falling in downtown ATL. I’ve been watching the ice build up on the fountain in front of my loft over the last 3 days. Was watching an icefall build at the pool … was thinking about pulling out ice axes and crampons … but someone knocked it off yesterday afternoon. /Marg Act as if everything you do matters, while laughing at yourself for thinking anything you do matters.

    Welcome to 2010

    I flew commercial from ORD to SFO on 31 Dec 1999. Emptiest I have ever seen either airport. Not a lot of folks on the plane either. Made it to the Embarcadero around 10:30-11PM. Much of the reason that the Y2K bug was not as much of an issue wasn't because it was over-hyped -- altho' there certainly were cases of that, it was because the private and governmental entities globally responded, invested/spent a lot of money, and took action. /Marg Act as if everything you do matters, while laughing at yourself for thinking anything you do matters.
