    oh very funny ...........................................
    I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.

    My net speed is slow, yet I finish the whole song. When I see the picture and the voice comes into my ear, I just think it is very interesting and funny. enjoyable

    My old laptop is so slow I have to run everything at the lowest resolution, otherwise it keeps stooping to load.

    Your old laptop and your general countenance are twins, Teddy? LOL

    John Williams seemed to be the name at the end of the movies where my one brother and I would be singing some parts afterwards, serious and joking, so he bought the soundtrack album for "Close Encounters of the Third Kind", and we loved it. And no, no mashed potato food fun.

    This is something that might not be appropriate, anywhere, any time, for any man to admit.
    But John William's music has a big part in it.
    I live in the Niagara Peninsula, in between two of the Great Lakes, Lake Erie and Lake Ontario.
    I've hiked along the shores, swam and snorkled, and love to bike-hike out there all day.
    And I've read every historic plaque, parks sign and see all the warnings along the way.
    I even drink Lake Erie water, so I definitely know it's not salty.
    But after seeing "Jaws" I was afraid to go swimming.
    I'd start hearing the music, start going "boo-duh boo-duh boo-duh" to myself,
    and I'd be afraid. I'd tell myself that half of a thirty pound dead carp just died of old age.
    That long piece of wood, shredded at one end? Just a piece of an old boat a whale used for a toothpick.
    Yeah, I even would rather believe in a whale in the lake than sharks.
    John William's music should come with a fear factor warning.
    Oh no! It's really blowing outside. The snow sharks are coming!
