That's right! In a dream earlier this week my Wife and I were travelling on a long car journey and we called into Paul and Jocelyn's house for a rest. It wasn't their actual house, just some house in a leafy suburb. We had a lovely lunch and good chats, then off we went on our journey. I don't know where we were going, or why we were heading there.

Dreams are such mysterious things.

Dreams are such mysterious, there is a cool concept of "lucid dreaming". It means that the dreamer is aware that he/she is dreaming.

I haven't experienced one, but I would love to.

Not sure It is Lucid dreaming Or not but sometime in the morning between 5:30  Or 6:30 am (I generally wake up at 5:45 Or 6 am )I knew the story playing in my mind is a dream and If I wake up and won't take much gap than 10 Or 15 seconds I can continue that dream I just need to visualize the last seen of that dream. I can continue that dream but I can't control any character Or environment something like that.

An interesting thing about my dream is If I'm not studying Or doing something which I'm not suppose to then I get dream like there is an exam specially of Mathematics in next 15 Or 20 days and I'm not prepared for that but everybody in the class is and I wake up then I realize Oh! It's a same dream again.

Second is I always get dreams of snakes being around me always. Not one Or two but I have seen so many snakes around me some small and some larger than me in size but they never bite in so many dreams I've seen them. Just couple of days ago on Monday I had got dream of 5 snakes ...  

I can remember every detail of my dream in the morning when I wake... Sometime I find It's funny ...

who's paul wheaton? is he related to wil wheaton - wesley from star trek?

i used to have a re-occuring dream that i was in a castle going up the stairs of a tower around and around in circles and then suddenly a suit of armor standing against the wall comes alive and swings an axe at me. always woke up at that exact part. had this same dream at least 5 times, sometimes years apart. always exactly the same. and nobody ever made me lunch in it.

He's the owner of this site -- you're not likely to see him posting but the moderators all know him.

He still posts, he just doesn't get involved in answering Java questions. But I feel for your cow so I'll give it a mate.

When I was new here on ranch this is how I saw them first time in a video when searched about Coderanch on Youtube. You can see Jesper de Jong , Paul Wheaton and Bear Bibeault. Not sure who is the one first at left side.

Permies.com, which is believed to be the largest website devoted to permaculture.
