    I just happen to have a busy, curious mind about all sorts of things, and I'm damn lucky to have gotten picked up by the likes of the Grand Canyon Field Institute, NAU, Yavapai College, Prescott College. . .and anything and anyone else who ever paid me to learn and go teach. As you see from some of the comments already given by the community. . .now you know who the real professor types are. And that's just why I love writing diaries for this community: there's always a lot of folks out there who know more than I do, who are also willing to teach me a thing or two doing it. Anyway, I sure do love the earth sciences and human history and natural history stuff, and trust me, Don Enrique, it is an ongoing learning process every step of the way. . .and that's why I tell people I am an expert in nothing; just competent. (So you could have flown in Twin Otters and Convair 580s and 737's with me and felt confident sitting back there. HA! Anyway, thanks for the support, as always, and for commenting. Your test on this stuff will be in order when you get out for your next tour. I don't mark off for misspellings and such; just make sure you get your name right on the test. HA.

    Treat the world (yourself, and others) as part of a living organism. Everyone and everything will benefit.

    •  Wonderful statement, Rich! (0+ / 0-)

      There are plenty of very well-informed people here, truly. Some real geniuses, even. But there's plenty to be said for a "busy, curious mind" too.

      And competence isn't to be sneezed at; whatever your field, competence is a darn good, admirable thing.
