It’s Very obvious that you have a strong knowledge of world mythology among other things. Wat I was referring to is that although it’s not the career I retired from, I have multiple degrees in Anthropology and Archaeology with a strong exposure to prehistoric Europe, MesoAmerica and India. Unfortunately that didn’t prevent me from being wrong!
Oops. I forgot about the later modifications. I stand corrected!
Ooookay. Sorry, but my academic background is screaming! Stonehenge was built in the Neolithic. Neolithic means ‘new stone age’. Usually connected to the rise af agriculture, though there are some questions on that. Bottom line is that it was started and finished in the ‘stone age’. Oh well, never mind. I’ll be quiet now.
Sadly very true. This country has very warped priorities in some things.
I’m sorry, I didn’t mean it as a ‘pitch’ at all, just a sorry attempt at a pun.
Sorry, I was talking about legitimate business. Something djt and his associates of various types don’t see any need to limit themselves to.
Banks and such do not truly ‘loan’ money. You aren’t borrowing it, you are renting it. You are paying for the privilege of using it, frequently paying a Lot, and you have to give it back eventually.
I also say Go For It. I retired from a career in an applied science at 65, forced into it actually and got very bored in spite of several hobbies. I’m now 72, just finished a Masters in another subject I’ve been interested in since a young child and now working on a PhD in a cross-over between the 2. It’s a challenge, which is what’s keeping me alive.
Ah yes, the ’Hoover" years. We raised two boys and I remember them well.
