Re: Harvard: Interstellar asteroid Oumuamua may actually be of extra-terrestrial origin

I just read an update last night about Oumuamua which stated they can't find any unusual radio signals emanating from it. Then again, do they really think a species capable of making million year + interstellar voyages would still be communicating by radio??? I remember reading Rendezvous with Rama ...

Re: Too old to start skating?

Cool!
Thanks for the reply. That's just the kind of advice I was looking for! There is a new ski area about an hour and half from where I live that supposedly has skate skis for rent, so as soon as I get a chance I'm going to break loose and give it a try.

I've been classic skiing forever, or at least since my early twenties, but here I am in my fifties thinking hard about getting into skate skiing.
