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.

Fascinating little story.
 
Exploring the world with +Google Glass

Just recently, I met this gentleman in the wilds beyond the desert. He was so curious and interested in Glass. Absolutely transfixed, he asked me everything about it, then tried it on and played and played and played!  He loved it!  

First I had him go through the same demo I give everyone.  I have them say, "Okay Glass, Take a picture" — it understands pretty much every accent around the world as far as I can tell. This always makes people freak out with excitement when they see the photo they just took floating as a hologram in front of their eyes.  

Then he started using it more and more, going through all my emails, watching videos, seeing my text messages, asking Google questions, checking weather... I mean it just went on and on and on... and then he started showing all his friends and telling them about it — he was so excited.  Naturally, he was happy for me to take his photo while he was playing!

We ended up talking about a bunch of different things.  I even bought an old used knife from him, and he showed me how to stick the curved end of it into a camel's hump to get water in an emergency.  There's another part of the knife you use to seal up the little puncture wound.  Then we talked about mediation, the sealing of the four cardinal spiritual doors in the night before entering the tent, different cultures around the world, and well, about a dozen other things.  Anyway, it was great... 


(btw after posting this, haha - I see that G+ automatically tagged it with Selfie!)

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...

A tiny experiment from a stack of around 300 images taken in Fairbanks, Alaska a week or so ago. This is what is can look like when the Milky Way dresses in Aurora Borealis :)
