It's Peter's birthday!

I speak of Peter Taylor.
Folks, you may not be aware of it, but Peter, behind the scenes, has donated steadily to OL. He has helped us keep our costs down.
And not once has he ever used this as an argument to agree with him or get rid of people who insult him or anything like that.
I judge people by what they do and what they say. Sometimes I disagree with what Peter says, but everything I have seen him do so far has been to my liking. He's good natured, intelligent, supportive, non-complaining, holds to his opinions without getting obnoxious and flaming, and always tries to make peace and get things back to civil discourse when they blow up.
In my world, that means Peter is good people.
Peter, both Kat and and I wish you the very best life has to offer and may you live many, many more moons, if for nothing else, than so your very existence can be a pebble in the shoe of those who diss you.
Love and peace, bro,
Michael & Kat

Congratulations! Happy Birthday!
Oops, this has no direct relationship to the topic of this thread, but I was reading some of your recent fascinating comments, and found your discussion of terra-forming Mars. I'm no physicist/astronomer, or anything like that, but some recent discussions of Mars (I think it was on The Universe series, on The Science Channel)addressed that issue. They said that the reason that Mars lost its atmosphere was because it did not have a molten core like Earth has, generating a protective magnetc field, and therefore was susceptible to the solar wind eroding away most of its atmosphere.
If that is accurate, then it raises another obstacle to successfully terra-forming Mars: exposure to radiation from the solar wind and/or solar flares and of course, the inability of Mars to hold an atmosphere. How can those issues be surmounted?..

Hope your health improves this year. Your absence has surely been missed in all my political discussions.
Maybe the Supreme Court will grace your birthday by totally striking down the ludicrously named "Affordable Care Act" which is pure tyranny.
