    Kilauea Eruption

    The quiet continues. The eruptions of lava have stopped for now. Residents are being allowed to go into homes and take care of belongings. No one can say what 6 hours, 6 days, or 6 weeks will bring. This might be the end of this phase, or it might be a lull. The earthquake activity has been markedly reduced over the past 24 hours. The respite is welcomed no matter how long or short it turns out to be.

    The lull has continued, so far, overnight. Much less shaking and residents may be allowed to check on homes if the quiet continues. http://www.hawaiitribune-herald.com/2018/05/06/hawaii-news/watch-and-wait-some-may-be-allowed-to-return-to-homes-briefly/

    Music

    I write and play, also. Sometimes I'll write and then put it to music...sometimes I'll write while on my keyboard; it helps me sometimes to write and play at the same time. Sometimes the song sounds better on my guitar...sometimes better with keyboard. Depends on the song. My biggest influences are country, The Eagles, Elton John and early Beatles. I would also think that if there's sentient beings elsewhere in the Universe...they play music as well.

    Music

    Music, don't over think it.. I write a lot of songs.. "Music".. I have used a technical approach, I have used my heart. I have written the words first & I have built the tune around a "hook" line. After many years I have come to see the deal is to ...enjoy music writing , fool around with notes, play around with words. Write your stuff down, sing a little something into your smart phone. When you have something you like work on it.. Craft it, like a piece of clay or a painting.. If it fights ya, put it down for a while & work on something else. 1/8 notes, quarter notes, flats', sharps , minors, major scales take care of themselves. Record your stuff on your smart phone or whatever you have, listen to it & craft it again or let it rest..Above all have fun... Music is math, but it is also art. Art will win every time.. enjoy your self Fatty.... ps , the photo is of me & my wife , we have been playing & writing together for a very long time.

    Think you might have diabetes?

    Well, Jesse...if you're already at 120mg/dL - eyeballing a meal of sugary fruit isn't the answer.

    April Fools - Then and now

    Some historians believe the April Fools' customs began in France, although no one knows for sure. It may stem from a calendar change in 16th century France -- the moving of New Year's Day from April 1 to January 1 when the Gregorian calendar was adopted. People who continued to celebrate New Year's Day on April 1st rather than the new date of January 1st were referred to as "April fools" and others played tricks on them.

    You just read the article. If you want to see more you’ll have to go to Hawaii to see him drop his pants.

    @joseph Britz - Don't overthink it is great advice. When we did our winter performance, I found I did my best when I was a little tired. Too tired and I would suffer. Go in full of energy, I would think, and bad things would happen. Just a little tired and muscle memory would kick in and pull me through.

    Humans are so incredibly diverse...

    While this perspective obviously has a substantial amount of evidence backing it up, most experts still believe that high BMI and fat accumulation is the major cause of insulin resistance. Other reasons could include: Sedentary lifestyle and no physical activities result in the blood sugar remaining unused. This also decreases body’s sensitivity to insulin. Stress is also a dominant factor. Faulty dietary patterns such as high consumption of sweetened drinks, trans-fats, saturated fats etc add to the chances. A family history of diabetes often renders an individual more susceptible to this condition. Certain genetic predispositions also dictate the working of insulin. You can read more on how our modern lifestyle could be responsible for high rate of diabetes - especially in the developed countries.

    Music

    I guess we are here to ramble on, I do the same but music is easy to understand, you hit something and it makes noise! You hit more then one thing now you have separation, and if you do that with a few people far away left and right now you have stereo...

    Interesting...

    @OneEye - I have no explanation. It is crazy when considering this objectively but it is certainly adds spice to life to live within 50 miles of not one, but two active volcanoes. There is just something about the place that is magnetic. To see the lava at work with the mark one eyeball is just beyond description to me.

    Interesting...

    Mount Vesuvius, a volcano near the Bay of Naples in Italy, is hundreds of thousands of years old and has erupted more than 50 times. Its most famous eruption took place in the year 79 A.D., when the volcano buried the ancient Roman city of Pompeii under a thick carpet of volcanic ash. I think that one killed about 20,000 people. Nowadays...about 3,000,000 people live within 20 miles of Mount Vesuvius. What kinda logic is that?

    Could insulin resistance be beneficial?

    The reverse experiment works pretty well too. Take a group of hunter gatherers, put them on a reservation, give them lots of sugar and flour to consume, and watch them become obese and diabetic. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pima_people#Modern_life While I believe there is a thrifty genotype, I also believe that most people have the ability to switch on some of these genes when the environmental conditions call for it. They don't switch off so easily, though. See https://www.cbsnews.com/news/tom-hanks-reveals-diabetes-diagnosis-did-fluctuating-weight-play-a-role/.

    Kilauea Eruption

    Today has been quieter. A total of 35 structure (26 homes) have been destroyed. 2 new fissures opened up but the earthquake activity has markedly reduced. I have not felt any tremors today. Tigger and Bella seem less anxious and have taken up playing chase again and other normal activities. Everyone awaits what tomorrow will bring...

    I heard about that on the radio this morning. The car was a loss, but the R2-D2 mailbox had been hand made by his daughter and given to him as a gift and so priceless.

    No new developments overnight. I found it interesting that the headlines in the Honolulu paper are now stating that lava and earthquakes have become "the new normal" in the past 24 hours. It is interesting how people adapt. http://www.staradvertiser.com/2018/05/04/breaking-news/overnight-earthquakes-and-lava-become-the-new-norm-on-hawaii-island/
