No doubt about it Wili! Wayne and Joe worked on Miles Davis's album; "Bitches Brew"

Dave Brubeck - Take Five (1959)

Best song ever! Period.

Agreed in part. One of the best. My favorite is Miles Davis in the mid-60's, with Wayne Shorter on Sax, Herbie Hancock on keyboard, Ron Carter on bass, and Tony Williams on drums. Check out "Miles in the sky" album on you-tube. Next best album in my opinion was "Miles Smiles".

Things are looking bright for the Democrats in the sunshine state:

Title: "September 25, 2018 - Nelson Takes Lead In Critical Florida U.S. Senate Race, Quinnipiac"

Title: "In the Florida U.S. Senate race, which could be critical to control of the Senate this year, Democratic incumbent Sen. Bill Nelson moves into a 53 - 46 percent likely voter lead over Gov. Rick Scott, the Republican challenger, according to a Quinnipiac University Poll released today.

This compares to a 49 - 49 percent dead heat in a September 5 survey by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University Poll."

That, despite all the money that Rick Scott has spent. Nelson claims Scott is outspending him 5 to 1. I don't usually donate to political candidates, but I did donate to Nelson's campaign.

And posted a second time.  And referred to many times since. I researched the network's news article about it.  I commented on it before.  Not sure why we have to address that video clip over and over.
Probably overkill on my part after being accused of not providing links?

She expressed satisfaction over the news. "We came, we saw, he died." Given what we know of Gaddafi, it seems an excusable lapse in moral judgment.  Not an indictment of Hillary's career.

"We came, we saw, he died - Ha, Ha, Ha"

Whether it's an indictment of Hillary's career, or simply a window into her mind is a matter of conjecture. - and the voting public.
Given what I've learned of Gaddafi, I find it particularly damning.

Terry: What have you learned of Gaddafi? He was a despot. Those that opposed his rule, faced annihilation. I can recall Gaddafi saying that he would show "no mercy" to the rebels in his country. I liken Gaddafi's demise to Nikolai Ceausesku's, back in 1989. They both deserved their fate.

Glaciers / Re: North Cascade glaciers Disastrous conditions

The Europeans are blanketing some of their glaciers to reduce melt as well. Although I'm an American, and a skier, I am totally blown away by the fact that they would dump salt on a glacier to condition it for skiing.
