Under Construction

I know, the rotating banner images at the top, from my photos through the years, are suddenly small. Well, actually, they are the same size they have always been. I am enlarging the width of my blog page and sidebar. The sidebar is now 240 pixels wide and the post area of my blog is […]

Like, Totally Groovy, Man!

What goes around, comes around. Blik is on to something with a cool factor. Here we have yet another variation of a modernized late 60’s, early 70’s fad returning. This is plower power on modern plastics! I like these–for your car, your glassware, your walls. I especially like the Stone Jungle and Anise! Hmmm… wondering […]

I can honestly think of few things so appropriate! SAN FRANCISCO: Reagan has his highways. Lincoln has his memorial. Washington has the capital, and a state, too. But President George W. Bush may soon be the sole president to have a memorial named after him that you can contribute to from the bathroom. From the […]

I'm in Love…

All over again! The iPhone web app Remote is awesome. I mention it in this post. Regrettably, my connection to the house’s wide area network was spotty at the time, and I couldn’t test it in detail. To be honest, I still haven’t tested it in detail–that time issue. But… Earlier I had read that […]

Breath

I know. I harp on the glorious ocean breeze. I just can’t express how much I love it. Here on July 10th, it’s 71º, and the curtains whip about with carefree abandon as should every human soul.

I Like It

Too many times I’ve nearly been run over by someone not paying attention to their driving because they can not multitask: talk on the phone and drive at the same time! I’m glad we have this law, now in effect in California! I’ve always been astounded that we will ban driving under the influence from […]

Longest Day of the Year

I didn’t take the time to download this picture from my iPhone on the day it was taken, June 21, 2008, the longest day of the year. I didn’t have my SLR with me, so the iPhone had to do: a photo of the sun setting over the Pacific Ocean on the longest day of […]
