I think you're right! MAY EVEN GET WORSE; IF THAT IS POSSIBLE! :shock:
Not just possible, PROBABLE.
Just as zero is not equal to infinity, everything coming from nothing is illogical.

Is that a sculpture out behind your greenhouse, Chris?
Just call me "geck" because "zilla" is like a last name.

Yes, it is. We have a pretty extensive sculpture garden, maybe 50 pieces outside and 100 inside. My wife is a sculptor, and we've done lots of trades with other artists, or just bought stuff we like. That piece is called Taurus, by the late John Sisko. A man gazing at the stars. Quite appropriate, and just outside my observatory (you can just catch the end of one of the roll-off roof rails at the far left of the greenhouse image).

That's cool... Pat and I were down in Carmel-by-the-Sea earlier this year in the Before Times and were trying to find a statue or some art that suits us. Turns out that taste diminishes with multiples of thousands of dollars, though.

Today was probably the last day of summer here in Malmö.

In the picture at left, I'm having a cup of coffee with some lovely pistachio ice cream, while a young mother is waiting outside with her twin babies in her twin pram.

In the picture at right, people are sunbathing and taking a swim in the waters of the Strait of Öresund.

Delightful. 26 C and only a faint breeze.

Yeah. Luckily a lot of my wife's stuff sells in the multiple thousands or tens of thousands range, which allows us to do some pretty nice high end trades.
