On the Trail

A fresh 6" yesterday, capping one of the snowiest months on record.

First time on skis for me this winter, can you guess which trail I took?

Lapham Peak Unit, Kettle Moraine State Forest, near Delafield, Wisconsin.

Return to Aspen

Good news, for me anyway. I've been assigned another trip to Aspen, Colorado coming up in March. I just now finished with the photos from my last trip there back last summer. So when I go back, there's virtually no chance I'll be seeing flowers.

Balboa Island Ferry Sign

Hard to tell from the folks having fun on the 1940's style cruiser, but this is the sign at the loading point for the small ferry that takes 3 cars at a time the 200 yards to Balboa Island.

Newport Beach, California.

Nothing Says Christmas

Like a humongous, weathered Santa looking over your shoulder.

Yes, Bush Really Does Hate Science

Not much I can add to this. I'm long past being nauseous over it.

40 Years

Of course you accept it and move on.

But there are still the what-ifs.

Why Mitt Romney is Wholly Unqualified to be President

Forget for a moment that he has gone back on all of the positions that got him elected governor of Massachusetts.

Now, in explaining how his religion doesn't matter as long as we are all religious, has completely eliminated himself from my ever possibly considering him to lead this country.

PZ Myers writes much better than I do, his comments are linked below:

For all of your enduring tonight's winter storm in the upper midwest, I bring you a nice summer view of the Big Manitou Falls in Pattison State Park, near Superior, Wisconsin.

We on the staff of "This Blog Title For Sale", have come into possession of a photograph depicting our boss, blog creater and editor-in-chief at a very young age.

We thought nothing of it until one day last week, when he became particularly demanding during a staff meeting, calling us all dirty names and generally calling our heritage into question.

That's when Maddy, associate editor for circulation, suggested some retribution-in-kind to remind the boss of his place in the grand plan. So we, the staff of "This Blog Title For Sale", at great risk to our livelihoods and future job prospects, bring you this photograph and ask all of you loyal readers to wish him a Happy Birthday.

How old? We don't know for sure, but far as we can tell, he's well north of 40. But you didn't hear that from us.
