I watch the news all the time, especially the weather. Sometimes you just gotta laugh.  
So life just keeps happening,  while I was making other plans....

January a neighbor of mine passed away,  I wish she hadn't done that as her and I were getting comfortable in each other's company,  even laughing together..It seems like every single time I make a friend,  they die a year or two later...

February my beloved,  funny face fur baby died suddenly.  It was hell.

 Cocoa was a Yorky/Poodle/ Llasa Apso mix.  A Yorky face,  cu...

Sorry to relay this to you folks.

Apparently his body was discovered at his home in Minnesota early this morning.

He had to cancel a few shows recently…the latest because of the “flu”.

He sold more than 100 million records in his career, 7 Grammys…who’ll forget “Purple Rain” or “While my Guitar Gently Weeps” in 2004?

He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004, was married twice.

Anyway, sorry to be ...

Feeling sad today. My best buddy in the world, Spanky, died this morning at 6:30 AM. He apparently had a heart attack.
He was a good dog. I miss him already.
We were close. He loved me and showed it. Life will go on, but it'll never be the same......

Daylight Savings Time. What a hoax. When did all this nonsense start?

Ben Franklin invented it…as a half joke, and a dig at the French:

“Money would be saved, Franklin argued, if people rose with the sun and turned in earlier at night, replacing hours of expensive candle use with free morning daylight.” – National Geographic

But no one took it seriously…well, maybe some French folks, but apparently they didn’t lose any sleep over it.

It's that time of the year again.  I've been to the track to get my passes etc. .... for the 37th time in a row.

Albert Park [Melbourne] is just 5 days away.  I'm posted at Turn 6 Left [Comms] and Terry's at 5.8 Right [Trackie]

And to think I was 26 years old at that first one I did in 1980 - when Alan Jones was World Champion.

Gone are the days of push-starting Senna [on my own] in Adelaide - I'll leave nudging 700 kilos of F1 to someone younger...

Not seeing a whole lot reportable in tech at the moment, so…Zika! Don't panic. Please. When I was in Jump School, there was a sign at the gate of the training instruments which read, "Knowledge prevents fear." My response was unprintable, and in a mixture of Hebrew and Arabic.

This is the Zika virus…it’s an RNA virus which doesn’t specifically target any tissue (like brain in developing fetuses), but which is an equal opportunity infection. It isn&rsquo...
Last night my wife and I attended a debate organized by the Michigan Review at the University of Michigan.

On one side was Breitbart editor, Milo Yiannopoulos and on the other was journalist and noted feminist, Julie Bindel.

The debate revolved around Feminism’s effect on modern society. 


The Venue The room was filled to capacity.  The handful of protesters were escorted out promptly the moment they began to try to disrupt the venue.   Meanwhile, ...

For anyone unsure..... think "To Kill A Mockingbird".

A more significant piece of literature in recent times there hasn't been.

Image manipulation is supremely important in many field…Photography, Art, and many more including skinning.

Every year I post about this incredible FREE school (there is an option to buy “anytime” access to the lessons). There is also a re-run of the lessons if you can’t listen to the live lesson. This year there will be a total of 39 classes.

There’s even an additional discount offered on Adobe’s popular “Photographer’s Bundle&rdq...
