Here’s a mother humpback whale breaching,  while her calf waves a fin good-bye.  We had to head for port before this pair became really active, and they started jumping once we were too far away to really get a good view. This was a formal whale watching cruise, sort of a disappointment because the whales […]

Cape Sounion

March 12, 2015

Here’s another photo from my long-ago trip to Greece, of sunrise at the temple to Poseidon on Cape Sounion, at the end of the Attic peninsula. I took the bus out to Sounion, bought a ticket, viewed the ruin— which is perhaps the most perfect small temple ever built— and then had souvlaki in a […]

Secret Masters

March 11, 2015

So for years, when visiting Santa Fe, I’ve been driving past a giant pink Moorish castle, and wondering what went on inside.  For the place was Santa Fe’s Scottish Rite Temple, where met the Secret Masters of Whatever It Is They’re Secret Masters Of.

Lessons for Writers: Dr. Funkenstein

March 5, 2015

I’ve been enjoying the autobiography of George Clinton, with its somehow perfect title, Brothas Be, YO Like George, Ain’t That Funkin’ Kinda Hard On You? I really didn’t follow Parliament/Funkadelic back in the day, for various reasons.  I liked my rock and roll more straight up.  P-Funk was so prolific, with its various incarnations— Parliament, Funkadelic, […]

Bloody Jane

March 4, 2015

“From this period, the intimacy between the Families of Fitzroy, Drummond and Falknor, daily increased till at length it grew to such a pitch, that they did not scruple to kick one another out of the window on the slightest provocation.” Who was it, d’ye think, that wrote such an elegantly balanced Augustan sentence, and […]

More details about the fusion reactor being developed by Lockheed Martin’s Skunk Works, courtesy of Aviation Week. “We would like to get to a prototype in five generations.

If Paul Allen builds it, it will fly. The world’s largest aircraft, with a wingspan wider than a football field is long.  Longer even than the Hughes Spruce Goose, which is still the largest to date.
