is anyone there?

for my own personal enjoyment, lets try something i have stolen from a very funny blog called http://fatdoctor.blogspot.com - love her.
1. grab the nearest book. no cheating! the nearest book.
2. open the book to page 123.
3. find the fifth sentence
4. post the text of the next four sentences on your blog, along with these instructions.
5. dont you dare dig for a cool or intellectual book on your shelf. pick out whatever is closest!

heres mine:

once i asked my son how he feels about his situation. "happy and sad," he answered. "sad because i have problems. happy because im doing so good." after much thought and worry, i decided to tell him about fetal alcohol syndrome.

God, this guy does not write short sentences! Therefore, I'm counting the one with the semicolon as 2:

As the wind increases, the cushion of air moves back away from under the helicopter, depriving it of its positive effect, but the wind is not yet strong enough to make up the difference; therefore, with about seven to 10 knots of wind, the power required to hover actually goes up. As the wind speed increases, power required goes down. A helicopter is said to be hovering out of ground effect whenever it hovers without the benefit of the ground cusshio (FIG. 6-7).

Yes, interesting reading. And I had a great lesson this morning! Hover-taxied and landed it between two very expensive jets and didn't wreck anything.

I got here by accident, am trying to find my son Alex' blog, also called Northern Lights. He is geologing North of Yellowknife.
Moiling for Gold I guess. Just have to wave, I used to live in a tipi, and made my own Granola and
yogurt, though I was not particularly beautiful.

Hi Lisabeth, It's Molly from the blog Somewhat Refined. Had to leave a comment and let you know that I 'borrowed' this from you, posted it on my blog, and it's taken on a life of its own -- it's now on blogs in England, India... To see, just go to Robyn's comment on my post and follow the trail. Fun! Thanks for posting it!
