While man, he errs diversely.
Dogs, in particular, excel
At helping man err worsely.
Since sea life feeds the world, it's true,
Gives us breath and some glows, too,
I guess it's no surprise to find men
Take things of value and combine them.
Inspired thought, it seems to me.
But a better one, it must be said-
Would be human with a hedgehog head.
PROGRESS, n. The obsolescence of the senses.
I think I mentioned my favorite quote on progress, where Governor Gumpas, promoter of the slave trade in C. S. Lewis' THE VOYAGE OF THE DAWN TREADER, asks King Caspian if he's never heard of progress, and Caspian says he's seen it in an egg.
But it bears mentioning again, and besides, I'm first so I can say what I want.
You have given me food for an artful thought...I don't know if it will progress.
Just a couple more experiments, and Diogenes can dispense with the lantern. Surely that's progress?
Btw, sea anemones are animals, not plants. Flowery though they may be.
Darn tootin', Weirsdo, although that's hardly progress.
Mo'a, I hope so.
Edited, Amoeba. I should really start having you read my posts before I publish them.
Progress -- Once the egg hatches progress picks up its pace.
Progress -- Getting back into a 'retired' routine after our trip to Europe. Check my blog periodically, I'm making (slow) progress on the telling of our holiday as well.
To think and plan and then admire, then forget, then die, the end.
"Is it progress if a cannibal uses a fork?"

Nice photo Ariel.
Hoping my third try at this is correct.
Refusing to walk through a wall of fire to get to the other side, or walking through a wall of fire to get to the other side.
Depending on if you are Doug or ....someone else.
I enjoyed the poem. Would you rather have a hedgehog head or a baboon bohunkus?
Progress: Eating one truffle per day rather than three.
I hope you are making progress today at whatever you are doing. If not, eat a truffle and try again.
I can't believe no one else has said this:
PROgress, the opposite of CONgress.
I am not sure how we reached this conclusion but a child with a hedgehog head is still better than a hedgehog with a child's appetite.
Great definition, Doug!
Jim, I check you pretty near daily. Retiring from vacation, by golly, is a good life.
See, Icy? Now you're thinking like a hedgehog. No room for mistakes there.
I'd have to say yes, TLP. Or when a Pennsyltuckian finally spells "lec."
Cooper, it's moving water I can't cross.
Hedgehog head, JD. Hedgehog head. Hedgehog head.
I think maybe you've said it, Quilly.
Ariel, I think hybrid specialization is a good idea.
Progress. It's not just a place in Kansas anymore.

True, Sauerkraut, although Independence is pretty much just a place in Missouri.
