My daughter and I tied at playing Alhambra. So for grins, we decided to see if we could rearrange our Alhambras to get the longest continuous walls possible. If we considered this a tie-breaker, then I won. (I built mine on the table and she did hers on the bench.) Anyway we've decided that we need to do this after every game to figure better ways to build our castles during the game.

If you're curious about the game, you should check out #tabletop at +Geek & Sundry y.

Who Knew?

Who knew a bog plant could be so unique!!  This is the flower of the Pitcher Plant.  an abundant bog plant here in Ontario.  I had never  seen them flower until last year on a trip preparing for this years spring Wildflower workshop. It has to be one of the coolest plants I know.

Personality - tendencies versus exhibited traits
Figuring out what makes someone tick is a fascinating past-time, especially figuring out yourself.  Some of the learning/personality tests/sorters I've investigated are: the corporate standby  MBTI/Keirsey (INTJ), the academic favorite  Five Factor (moderat...

One of my favorite professors has taken to leaving encouraging comments on YouTube videos.  I can't help but wonder how much better it would be if more of us did the same. 
 
Pablo's music is the "Gold Standard" for peaceful moments of relaxation, meditation, and soulful rejuvenation in the spider web of space and time. It is inspired and blessed by all things good. Recommended without reservations from a grateful listener. Thankfully, Dr. Mel Preisz

Pic 4 Today : Texas Wildflower Action

After a day of setting up the booth and then tending it from noon until 6pm at the Galveston Feather Fest yesterday, my shutter finger was getting so twitchy that I begged off on the evening's dinner plans at Bennos Cajun Seafood in order to visit Corps Woods Nature Reserve for a hour or so while we still had light. Corps Woods is a patch of, basically, waste ground along a ditch and a seep across the road from the Coast Guard compound, with a few taller cottonwoods to justify the "woods". There is a Bushwacked trail and two short boardwalks to observation decks along the seep. Though the birding was pretty slow...there were a few wildflowers to entertain. And I did manage a few shots of a Yellow-crowned Nightheron through heavy brush. All in all my hour there was certainly as satisfying as Cajun seafood :-)

We have here, I believe, two varieties of Blanket Flower (bottom), Cardinal Flower (upper right), and Lantana. The Lantana was a difficult shot in deep shade using my screw on macro lens on the Sony NEX 3NL. The wind was blowing the flowers around so even though I took multiple shots I did not get one that is totally sharp. The others were framed in full sun at the long end of the 600mm equivalent zoom on the Olympus. The Cardinal flower used the 2x digital extender as well for a 1200mm equivalent field of view.

Processed in Snapseed on my tablet. The Lantana has some additional processing in Photo Editor by dev.macgyver. Collage assembled in Pixlar Express.

A Few Things I Learned Cross-Referencing My Limited DNA Results with the SNPedia database.
Okay, in an effort to have some concrete data to show me, my sister Serena offered to pay for a saliva DNA test.  She explained that it couldn't conclusively prove gluten intolerance, but it was the only test she could get for me without scheduling an appoi...
