Check out this tub/shower in Jerusalem’s 4 star Grand Court hotel.  It only covers half of the opening.  Huh? I found it virtually impossible to avoid a flooded floor after taking a shower.  No matter how hard I tried to … Continue reading

Wizard of Oz

Watching the Wicked Witch

Watching the Wicked Witch

Do you remember the first time you saw “The Wizard of Oz”?  I don’t, but know I was a lot older than 3 and 6.

These young lads never took their eyes off the screen … even during the scary parts.  I guess the constant struggle between good and evil they see with all the super hero themes prepares them for the Wicked Witch.

Thought for the Day:  As a child, I was more afraid of tetanus shots than Dracula.                                                                                                                                             Dave Barry

A beautifully prepared meal by my oldest son.

Thought for the Day:  I’m on a seafood diet … I see food and I eat it.

He is risen

He is risen

This morning I left for a 9-day trip to the Holy Land.  I’m excited about the Holy Land, but apprehensive about the Middle East.

Hope to have some pictures up soon after I return.

Moon Eclipse

Moon Eclipse - 2015

Moon Eclipse – 2015

This image is a composite of three moon shots taken over a twelve hour period, ending with a full eclipse on Saturday morning, April 4, 2015, at 7:05 AM.

The moon in the upper left was shot around 7:30 PM as the moon was rising the night before.  It was supposed to be a super-moon, but it didn’t look that much bigger to me.  At any rate, it’s probably the best detailed moon shot I’ve ever gotten.

The next morning, the eclipse began at 5:00 AM.   The middle moon in the image above was shot at 6:20 AM, already about 3/4 eclipsed.  Why didn’t I get a shot at 5:30, you ask? Uhhh, I hit the snooze button once too often.

The moon shot in the lower right was taken at 6:40 AM.  The sun was brightening the sky behind me, and the moon was losing its own light; I could barely find the moon looking through the lens.   Three minutes later, the moon was completely invisible.  I never did see it set at 7:09.

Thought for the Day:   If you snooze, you lose.

Easter Chicks

Easter chick

Nothing says “Easter” like colored chicks.  For a brief moment there was nothing going on in the whole-wide-world, except in front of her.  No thought of the Easter Bunny, Easter egg hunts or jelly beans … just the marvel of another living creature.

Thought for the Day:  Boys, I may not know much, but I know chicken poop from chick salad.                                                                                                                       Lyndon B. Johnson
