My friend Linda and I have been going for walks in the morning. I've been trying to get in a little better shape in advance of our planned trips this fall. I am worried that I will have trouble if I don't at least do some exercise.


Today we walked to the State Capitol Building which is about a half mile away. In total walk of 1.18 miles. Linda wanted to see how big the protest was on the steps. They were getting ready to protest Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos.

Sorry this is dark.
Obviously I had my camera on the wrong setting and didn't realize it. :o

But last month I had the pleasure of seeing, and then meeting the comedian, Paula Poundstone...

Found: A Letter to the Future From 1995
The walls of a suburban house contained a secret missive.

This is the sort of thing I would do. In fact, I did. My time capsule was a little more extensive. I remodeled a hot tub in my apartment. I included a history of my ownership of the condominium with a few pictures. I also included a copy of the grocery ad from the week, a first class postage stamp, and the front page of the newspaper. That was back around 1996.

I took all those treasures and sealed them in a Tyvek envelope which is mostly waterproof, placed them in a shopping bag that I received from a shoe store because it had a string closure. I hung the parcel from the structures under the tub where it would be away from the damp floor. Who knows when it will be found.

This song came out in 1987, but it didn't chart on the Top 100 Chart here in the States...
But I think it's a great new version of an old classic.

The Music is still calling.

I don't think Whitney did her act in water.

CNN has a "Throw Mama from the Train" moment with this headline.

Family of woman killed by Minneapolis police wants answers

The line is Throw Mama from the Train, a Kiss." It implies that you are throwing Mama and not the Kiss. English is a Word order language. Placement is important.

I saw the headline and read:

Family of woman killed by Minneapolis Police. "Wants answers" was lost somewhere in translation.

I went to the Bear's pool party on Saturday. It was a potluck with a lot of interesting people. One guy did something very unusual. He was Flag Dancing which I had not seen in a long time.

I was prevalent in the 1980s but by the 90s it was waning a wasn't done a lot.

I knew a guy in the late 80s that made his own fans for this purpose. I don't know how much is technique and how much is just flowing with the music.

Crow and the Birds
When the eagle soared clear through a dawn distilling of emerald
When the curlew trawled in seadusk through a chime of wineglasses
When the swallow swooped through a woman's song in a cavern
And the swift flicked through the breath of a violet
When the owl sailed clear of tomorrow's conscience
And the sparrow preened himself of yesterday's promise
And the heron laboured clear of the Bessemer upglare
And the bluetit zipped clear of lace panties
And the woodpecker drummed clear of the rotovator and the rose-farm
And the peewit tumbled clear of the laundromat
While the bullfinch plumped in the apple bud
And the goldfinch bulbed in the sun
And the wryneck crooked in the moon
And the dipper peered from the dewball
Crow spraddled head-down in the beach-garbage, guzzling a dropped ice-cream.
Ted Hughes, 1971

I'm a tremendous fracker, coal, natural gas, alternate energy, wind -- everything, right?

Hmmm I think Fracker may not be the work he wanted. I am thinking of a word with a U in it.
