A few years ago, I would have skipped doing any reviews of this nature, because the books I refer to had a limited run from American publishers and are nearly all out of print now; some of them never actually had a US publication, since the author is British and they were primarily published [...]
A friend of mine has maintained a saltwater aquarium off-and-on for several years now, and she tends to find some pretty cool species to occupy it. She related this story to me a couple of years ago, and having been reminded of it recently, I’m obligated to feature it here.
She had, not long [...]
[The location: A dark room somewhere deep in officialdom, drifting smoke obscuring the light from a single table lamp because, if you're going to do something like this, you have to do it right.]
Shadowy Figure #1: You know something? This president is really a pain in the ass!
Shadowy Figure #2: Boy, you [...]
Okay, this one’s just stupid, but that’s its charm.
Many years ago I worked at an extension of a humane society, a facility dedicated to dog training, wildlife rehab, and activities over and above the basic shelter services we provided – I was onsite caretaker and septic maintenance person (the Director felt it was [...]
I said I’d be coming back to this; you were a fool to doubt me. The song I’m eventually going to get to was responsible for introducing me to the previously featured video by the same band, but has a great backstory itself.

I am not going to apologize for what is to come; I am only going to warn you.

If that isn’t [...]
Yeah, that’s probably nonsense, but I had to pass this one along. When preparing to shoot the illustrating image for the previous post, I was doing lighting and pose tests. Kaylee (the one in the back) will hold still and can even be convinced to look interested with the right approach – obviously not [...]
So, let’s look at this in detail. We all know jesus could walk on water, but could he sleep on water? Could he even swim? If he dove off the dock, would he break his neck?
Maybe the effect was limited to his feet, in which case he’d have to be careful of his [...]
This is a revisit of a post from a few years ago, partially because I always wanted to tackle the images better, and partially because this is the season for it. But at the same time, this post is aimed in part at the people with a fear of spiders, because it just might [...]
So, I met a student in the local botanical garden this morning, and afterward took a couple of passes through the garden to see what there was to chase. I have a post in draft form, coming soon, that’s going to have a few images of jumping spiders, plus a whole collection of other [...]
