We’ve been growing plants and herbs at the house for a few years now (but not as many as I wish we had in retrospect). But, as far as I could find with a cursory search, I’d never done an end of summer summary of how the growing season went for us. I know there … Continue reading “Garden Report 2018”
If you take the Biblical story of Adam and Eve literally (as opposed to figuratively or allegorically) there is one possible explanation for the world as science sees it that I’ve never, ever heard anyone propose. This shocks me as it seems to be a convenient answer that fits with the science. The Bible tells … Continue reading “How Long *were* They in the Garden?”

I used to hate Hunger Games because I considered it to be yet another example of America getting credit, fame, etc from another culture’s work; Battle Royale in this case. Eventually, I got the Hunger Games Trilogy from a Humble Bundle and read it, realizing that while the plots were the same in the abstract … Continue reading “Perfect Blue”
Someone a few houses away from mine planted a very colorful garden. A few days ago I stopped by to take some photos.
It’s been a long time since I last took a look at an innovative music player. Back in 2006 I explored Songbird ) and in 2008 I looked at some of the unique features over two posts: Taking Another Look at Songbird and Play the Web. The ability to grab MP3s off of sites, in particular … Continue reading “Tomahawk – unify all your cloud and local audio”
A Storm of Swords by George R.R. Martin My rating: 4 of 5 stars This book had a lot of great scenes – my favorite scenes from the TV show and more. (view spoiler)[I’m INCREDIBLY surprised that the TV show thus far has not incorporated resurrected Catlyn (hide spoiler)] This was where the two versions … Continue reading “Review: A Storm of Swords”
The local Olive Garden has added these devices to the tables. My first thought was to be annoyed at the fact that this thing takes up a significant chunk of the table. Then I messed with it a bit – it seems to be mostly a neat idea with one think that’s a bit out … Continue reading “Ziosk”
I’ve been a fan of Weird Al for about 17 years. I used to have the Disney special Weird Al Going Home, but unfortunately, I lent it to someone and never got it back. Yet, in all the time, I’d never seen a Weird Al concert live. Finally, Weird Al came to Baltimore as part … Continue reading “Concerts 2015: Weird Al Yankovic”
Pink Flamingos are corny and kitschy as hell, but this is freakin’ amazing!
For a while during Scarlett’s second year Danielle and I went back and forth on whether we should take Scarlett to Disney just before her second birthday or whether we should wait until she was older. On the one hand – she’s not going to actually remember this trip. Or rather, any memories she has … Continue reading “Visiting Walt Disney World with a 2 Year Old”
An interesting Top 200 Photo photo #45 is: Titled “The Last Supper”: this is, I think, my most ambitious digital composition. I was deep in my 365 project and I didn’t know what to do for the 264th day. I had thought of this idea once before, but not in any depth. Originally I thought … Continue reading “Top 200 Photos: #45”

As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I went to NYC over Father’s Day weekend to see the Mermaid Parade. Well, as if that wasn’t crazy enough, I went BACK to Coney Island that night to photograph the new Luna Park. I have been documenting the changes to Coney Island and so I wanted to document … Continue reading “The New Coney Island and The Cyclone”
