Woe is me! Unhappy and accursed ...
Alas, I've failed Single Sign-on and this empty space is the result. No furniture, no nesting material or warm, safe area where I could grow back my feathers or brood an egg. Nothing in the pantry. Sigh.
My real page is here but I can't get in. The key's in the pocket of my other trousers and they're locked in the wardrobe in my now inaccessible home page: U143441
Ah well, seeing as I'm here and going nowhere else in a hurry, I might as well start filling up the space.
May I urge you to click on the following link and sign the petition it takes you to, to Save the Albatrosses. These magnificent birds are marked for extinction, entirely as a result of our species' fishing methods. They won't be around for much longer unless we do something to stop the annihilation quickly: http://www.forestandbird.org.nz/petition/index.asp" >http://www.forestandbird.org.nz/petition/index.asp

And here, for your information and edification, is a quote for our times, from Frank Herbert's Dune:
"Beyond a critical point within a finite space, freedom diminishes as numbers increase. This is as true of humans in the finite space of a planetary ecosystem as it is of gas molecules in a sealed flask. The human question is not how many can possibly survive within the system, but what kind of existence is possible for those who do survive."
And while we're about it, a quote from Charles Darwin:
"Ignorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge."
