Are you up to date on the Wikileak thing? What did you make of this? http://www.collective-evolution.com/2016/10/10/wikileaks-email-leaks-shed-light-on-the-vaticans-possible-knowledge-of-extraterrestrials/16/10/2016 #2 David B. Grinberg#1 That Hubble Space Telescope is sure amazing, @Aurorasa Sima. It's findings have really transformed the way space scientists view our own galaxy in general and the universe in particular. Do you remember the repairs they had to do on Hubble when it's mirrors had problems, per a NASA space walk to fix it?16/10/2016 #1 Aurorasa SimaYou know what, David, when I was younger I often stayed up to see things one was supposed to be able to see. Never saw a thing. No asteroids, no nothing.
I was grateful for Larry´s map that showed I would not see it from CHI (no periscope here) and I´m grateful for your info about the delay.
I´ll watch some Hubble live stream instead.

Supposed to be a no star festival, Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, Gordon LIghtfoot and a lot of unanounced stars performed. Dylan just walked. Stood very close to him.
The festival had a stunning array of blues artists too, John Hammond, Rosevelt Sykes, Bukkah White, in addition to a young John Prine and Bommie Raitt. Got to chase down the program.

Comments07/10/2016 #17 Charles David Upchurch#7 @Nick Mlatchkov I go back and edit my long-form posts all the time. I'm guessing that you are referring to our current inability to edit short "update" buzzes.
While we cannot update quick buzzes, there are two workarounds.
1) For a short buzz that you can go back and edit, just create it in Producer (as if it was a longer buzz). I've seen you do exactly that, Nick.
2) instead of editing, create a new "replacement" buzz and then delete the original. The downside, there, is that if you don't replace the original buzz right away, you end up losing bee wisdom (all the comments) from the original buzz.07/10/2016 #15 Charles David Upchurch#5 Charlie wrote "Unfortunately, all of these editors are incapable of translating Word's extended formatting, to the point where I have to remember if and what was italicized."
I have found that I can compose in beBee Producer with very little hassle. When I hit a formatting glitch, I just hit enter to start a new paragraph at the point where I want my format change, then I apply the format, then I remove the paragraph break.
HELPFUL HINT FOR ANY ONLINE PUBLISHING PLATFORM: Compose (and format) your stuff offline, first, in Word or with a simpler (and free) text editor like Wordpad, Notepad, Text, or Office Write, then "SAVE AS" rich text format (that's a *.RTF file). After the simplified file is saved, you can re-open the RTF file and cut and paste into beBee, or LinkedIn, or WordPress without losing your formatting.02/10/2016 #9 Andrew PorterThe producer is quite sufficient for me but I'm not a professional writer, yes we would all like more tools but patience is a virtue....I'm sure the beBee team are working on improvements for the producer, we must remember that Rome wasn't built in a day and beBee is really still in it's infancy!02/10/2016 #8 Javier beBee#7 thanks @Nick Mlatchkov we will have to wait.

As a result, I do all of my writing off-site in Word and paste it into place. Unfortunately, all of these editors are incapable of translating Word's extended formatting, to the point where I have to remember if and what was italicized. Something for the wish list.

Comments11/10/2016 #16 Sara Mateos-Aparicio OrozcoVery nice @Alice Taylor! I also love Madrid, every area has its special vibe. Nevertheless, I would say that right now Chamberi has become a very fashionable place and, therefore, it's one of the most expensive neighborhoods, especially Ponzano Street. Actually, I live there and I was looking for a new flat to rent... It was impossible because they were amazingly expensive!01/10/2016 #13 Lisa GallagherExcellent write up with great photos @Alice Taylor. So many layers and they all look inviting! I live about 50 miles from a town (It's an Indian town) called Salamanca, Ny.

Comments18/09/2016 #46 Ken Boddie#45 Not long enough, Lisa. We had an arrangement with a local tour company, organised through one of my brothers-in-law, and had a pretty rigid itinerary with many other places in North Sumatra to visit, not to mention our own itinerary in South Sumatra, Central Java and Pulau Lombok. Hence we only had part of a day on Pulau Samosir (the island in the lake), although I could have happily stayed there a week. It appears that, back in the Hippy Days, many young foreigners used to escape to Samosir and get 'stranded' there, hiding away with the locals, playing music and partying in a haze of ..........??? Pretty tame, however, when we were there, apart from the odd back-packer. 😎 Peace, Sister! ✌️18/09/2016 #45 Lisa GallagherWhat a vacation @Ken Boddie!! Lake Toba looks breathtaking. Your travels, well I'd say you must be patient. It appears the travels along bumpy, winding roads were well worth the trip! I love your hotel, "Lake Niagara," and the resort looks beautiful. Your sister in law is so colorfully dressed, love it. How long were you here? Your photos make me want to jump right in!!17/09/2016 #42 Lada PrkicBesides your fluently written article with pictures showing the amazing allure of this unique geographical and geological wonder, I am impressed by your comment which beautifully summed up the essence of traveling: "The satisfaction I get from travel arises from the new, the strange, the different, but most of all, the people and their behaviour as individuals and in their various societies."
I most likely will never go to the Lake Toba, but I really want to travel to this part of the world and experience the new, the strange, and the different. Dear @Ken Boddie , thank you for showing us all the beauty of this journey.17/09/2016 #40 Pamela L. Williams#39 Absolutely Ken! I couldn't agree more. The more different the culture and people are from what I'm used to the more I enjoy visiting and understanding them. What I learned most in my educational and employment experiences is learning about the differences in people. Once when taking a humanities class I chose an assignment to interview Buddhist monks. I learned that those who approach a monk in a temple were to enter the room on bent knee. They told me I didn't have to since I wasn't a Buddhist but I asked them one question: Why do your followers perform this act? Their answer: It's a sign of humble respect. I entered the room on bent knee! I didn't have to be a Buddhist to show respect for their beliefs.
I love the differences in humanity, even if I don't agree with some of them, I try to respect their right to be different. Though I tend to have trouble with cultures that subjugate women. No one should be made to feel inferior because of their sex or station in life.17/09/2016 #39 Ken Boddie#38 For me, Pam, the beauty is a bonus and the icing on the cake to embellish the photos. The satisfaction I get from travel arises from the new, the strange, the different, but most of all, the people and their behaviour as individuals and in their various societies. Nothing teaches tolerance more than being a foreigner in other societies. Sure the natural beauty is awe inspiring, but the people (including their beliefs, religions, behaviours and amazing tolerance of our false misconceptions of them) are the real attraction.17/09/2016 #38 Pamela L. WilliamsIn the interview with @Donna-Luisa Eversley I said; I don't think there is anywhere I Don't want to go. This is why Ken! The natural beauty to be found throughout the world is so awe inspiring! Your photos put us there, right in the middle of what to us is a remote corner of the world. Thank you for taking us on this journey with you. If I never get to visit I can say I learned something about the Batak people and their beautiful lands.
