Tioga Had a rough night last week. This is a movie of tioga as we left for work. He stays out all night and then I let him inside in the morning. He tucks himself in the bed. There is a lot of stuff going on that is for sure. I have to catch up on the pics and posts. It is kind of rainy today. I did mow a couple of acres in the rain. The windshield wipers worked well. It is great to look back to the back pasture and see alternating strips where I mowed and plucked out the Mutifloral roses. It is a pasture on the comeback. Duane and I were thinking about what the original farmers would think as they see their pastures go wild. They didn't have the same tools to create them that we have today. I have a lot of computer work to do today. BAH. I like this article in New Scientist. A turn to focus on technology in the last 100 years may have lead us to a slowing of true inovations. That fits with my understanding of how drug research is done. A market is developed/identified first before research is started on a compound. Sometimes drugs that can be developed fairly easily are not developed because the market is not that large. I guess what I am saying is that the economics tied to innovation is technology. Science is not tied to either, unless it is directed as such. I am sore this morning from my work yesterday. I moved a lot of trees and rocks. I have to get at it again in a couple of minutes.
