northcountrygirl, you have incredible talent. Just so everyone doesn't think all of us yankees have the same talent, I was reminded of a poem I wrote many years ago in grade school.....

Little Johnny was a chemist,
Little Johnny is no more,
What he thought was H2O
Was H2SO4.

(H2SO4 is sulfuric acid).

A poet I am not, but thought this might bring a chuckle to some.

Have a great day!

Default Standing In Tennesss

Thanks for asking Ridgerunner. This forum helps to keep me connceted with my heart in Tennessee. I wrote this this one while daydreaming about her. I hope it will remind people in Tennessee of the precious gift they have, and I hope it will help people planning to move to Tennessee to know what makes it so special and what they have to look forward to.



STANDING IN TENNESSEE

Have you ever really seen the green
Of a gentle sweeping mountain scene
Have you ever really seen the blue
Of a sky so clear you really knew

You could reach all the way to paradise
Give up your soul and not think twice
Have you ever really breathed the air
Lay in a meadow without any care

Have you ever really felt the breeze
Blowing softly through the trees
Or felt the warming touch of the sun
And knew your worrying was done

Have you ever felt your passions yield
To running through an open field
Or watched the path of a floating bird
Or be so quiet a whisper can be heard

Have you ever stopped to pick wildflowers
Or noticed the silos as high as towers
Experienced a wave or a simple smile
And felt more welcome with every mile

Have you ever walked down a gravel road
Watched grass in the wind as it slowly bowed
Or seen the sight of a newborn calf
And felt the joy when it made you laugh

Have you ever felt worry melt away
Or rolled in the piles of fresh cut hay
Stood in a forest and noticed a single tree
Then you were standing in Tennessee

Firefighterdon! You're a poet. We write about what we know. It took talent to take chemistry and make it poetic. Good job. I love it

Thanks FFD but you are wrong. To take a chemistry subject and make it poetic is no simple task. I couldn't do it. Writing about Tennessee is easy, it is my love. Chemistry, not so much. Thanks again
