I've only seen one of these billboards so far, but I haven't spent much time on the freeways this month. ๐Ÿ™


Today, the Catholics and many friends remember Saint Maximilian Marie Kolbe, SP3RN. The Catholic Church venerates him as patron saint of amateur radio operators, of drug addicts, of political prisoners, of families, of journalists, of prisoners and pro-life movement.

Listening to RFM Paris while working. Just heard Der Kommissar by Falco. Hadn't heard that song in quite a while.

When my wife brought in the mail this morning, there was a notice addressed to "current resident" with a warning that there's no record of anyone at our address being registered to vote. In fact, she and I are both registered.

I think we're going to see a lot of this silliness the next few months.

Please don't believe something unsolicited that arrives in the mail! If you're in doubt about your voter registration status, contact your local election officials well before the election.

Well, after all these years, it finally happened. I opened a bottle of wine that was so truly awful that, for a brief moment, I thought I might quit drinking.

After the sun reaches a certain point in the sky, I usually donโ€™t even bother trying to take sunrise photos. Direct sunlight tends to expose the imperfections in the lens of my low-budget smartphone. However, this photo from my hike at Shaw Butte over the weekend came out better than expected. You may have already seen it, since I posted in on my social networking account Sunday morning. This past weekend was the first time Iโ€™ve done any real hiking in Phoenix since the beginning of summer.


Usually I don't even try to take sunrise photos because the sun brings out the imperfections in the lens of my low-budget smartphone. This one taken this morning came out okay. It's the same trail as yesterday, but I started a few minutes earlier today. It was almost as crowded as yesterday. ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฒ

This morning I enjoyed my first decent hike in Phoenix since the beginning of summer. It was the usual loop at Shaw Butte not far from my home. Apparently 5 am is not early enough to avoid crowds, at least not since the began.

Fifteen years ago today, I visited the Grand Canyon with two friends, an Austrian woman with whom I'd studied in France, and her then-boyfriend-now-husband, an Englishman. ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฒ

Is it still okay to refer to a photo as black-and-white?

"When you see a man casting pearls without getting even a pork chop in return, it is not against the swine that you feel indignation. It is against the man who valued his pearls so little that he was willing to fling them into the muck and to let them become the occasion for a whole concert of grunting, transcribed by the court stenographer."
