Welcome to Thursday Coffee Hour. This is an open topic thread so help yourself to the goodies and sit a spell and let us know what is new with you. I think one of the most fascinating creatures on Earth is the dolphin. I often use them in my art.

Dolphins form themselves into pods. They are very social animals. They communicate with each other in a variety of clicks, whistles and other vocalizations. Dolphins have been known to help injured swimmers both human and nonhuman.

Writers have frequently used dolphins in their stories. One of the most famous was the late Douglas Adams. The dolphins left Earth before it was destroyed by the Vogons but they did try to warm the Earthlings but we couldn’t understand the message. Finally giving up they left us a message that said, “goodbye and thanks for all the fish.”

I often put my dolphins in other worlds. I figure as an intelligence species they belong among the stars.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
