I have a TV, but I don’t watch a whole lot of TV – State of the Union, Super Bowl, that’s about it. I sometimes watch the Oscars, but not this year. I actually saw two of the films nominated for the Best Picture; they were both fine, but not exactly Casablanca. Years from now, […]Read more "the best picture"
I don’t often watch TV news, but when I do I usually turn it off right away after hearing reporting such as this: It’s clear that something happened here, but it may have already happened.Read more "what’s happening"

It was t-shirt weather today in RWC, so I figured a scoot down the Skyline Trail might be in order, once I got my Saturday chores out of the way. So I hopped into the econobox and headed on up.

We also see that leading […]Read more "airport: a comparative study"
The last three books I’ve read were all great. The first one was Uncertain Path by Bill Tweed. We had the good fortune to meet Mr. Tweed during our stay at Bear Paw High Sierra Camp. On the way home, we stopped at the visitor center at Grant Grove, and they had this book. It […]Read more "great books"
Remember the movie Airport? I’ve been watching bits of it on Netflix the past few nights. I have about a half hour of it remaining, which I should be able to get through tonight. If you haven’t seen it since it came out 40 years ago, you should check it out. Now that everybody’s bailed […]Read more "airport"
When we were at Bearpaw High Sierra Camp, some campers happened to mention Hurricane Irene and the East Coast earthquake to the people working there. The camp staff is there for a couple of months during the summer, and they don’t have regular Internet or phone access, and so it wasn’t all that surprising that […]Read more "never heard of it"
