We gave up #cabletv to save money. I set up a #Clearstream #antenna on the rear patio, plugged the coaxial into my #Tivo and ran the channel scan. I'm getting 23 channels free OTA! I also have #Plex to access my personal library. I don't think I'll miss cable tv very much.

This is another wonderful example of how #3Dscans  and #photogrammetry  can be used for #historicpreservation  , teaching #arthistory  and appreciation of our ancient patrimony in general. Why some museums resist and contemporary artists think this is wrong will always puzzle me. #museums   #artists

This video made my day. Now all the history/scifi nerds like myself have the answer to the burning question of what would happen if someone time-traveled and annoyed people of that era with futuristic technology. Another what-if question cleared up curtesy of this fabulous video. ;-)

Fun! It almost boggles the mind to think that when our grandparents were children there were very openly #LGBTQ  people having parties and soirees and being covered in the popular press of the day. If not for the charming tunes, the aging accounts in archives and the fading memories of people, we'd all be lulled into thinking #Stonewall  was the very instant that everything started for #Liberation  and #Equality  as well as visibility. #history   #culture

An ironic trip through #history  and our shared #LGBTQ  heritage. The more things change, the more they stay the same. Or, to put another spin on it, #conspiracytheorists  are hardly a modern thing. Crackpots then as now, LOL! #humor   #pinkmafia

Incredible! Not too many families can say they still have the house their ancestors purchased. Via mail-order. From #Sears  no less! I can't speak to the #prefabhouses  of today, but the mail-order #SearsHomes  of the early 20th century have proven their mettle. I admire the ones around #SiouxFalls  that I've been able to pick out and hope they'll be as loved and cared for into the next century as this one has been. #historicpreservation   #architecture

I LOVE listening to #LorePodcast  as I edit my photos. Kudos to #AaronMahnke  and the recent news of a possible TV show created with the help of the producers of #theWalkingDead  !

A fascinating and easy to understand animation lesson on #immigration  and #history  for everyone. When you consider the number of immigrants arriving as a ratio of the #US  population, it becomes clear that the rancor about immigration today is just history repeating itself and has no basis in fact for argument. #Foodforthought   #politics  
Immigration is a hot topic in the United States right now, thanks in part to a rather blustery presidential candidate. But as this animated map created by Metrocosm reminds us, migrants have been a defining aspect of the U.S. for centuries.

I choose home life to the nightlife
Introduction
I'm a youngish middle-aged bear who has found increasingly that I prefers staying home to at the same couple of local gay watering holes. I was always the odd-man out when it came to what interested me and I've stopped trying to find a connection where none existed.

I'm a history and art buff. I try to watch all the documentaries I can get my hands on and I read as much as possible. I also enjoy SciFi and humor now and then. One of my favorite genre's is horror, not the slasher-porn stuff but more like the tension-filled stuff from overseas.

I love photography. I've been expanding my love of photography with 3D modeling in the last year. I'm becoming somewhat good at it but I have a long ways to go as I'm completely self taught.

I am single. I've been looking here and there online but haven't seen or met any men that have the right magic or chemistry. The majority of guys online are looking for one thing and while that's great, I find that it's not as satisfying for me as it used to be. I'd rather sitting nude on the couch with a bowl of popcorn and good documentary than having some slippery, kinky encounter (but that is only if I'm not with the right guy -- then I reserve the right to change my mind).

Like many people, my experiences with dentists weren't always very good (think root canal, fillings, etc) and as an adult I had avoided even basic cleanings for years out of fear. I was recommended to Sensational Smiles and finally went after much convincing from my healthcare team. Everyone at Sensational Smiles was great. They took a very frightened, snarky, outspoken man who was hypersensitive about everything and walked me through it each step of the way. They had the patience of Job. There were no surprises and they accommodated me far beyond what was necessary to get my cleanings (and another root canal and a crown) done. I'm getting better about taking care of my teeth and I don't dread my appointments with Sensational Smiles like I used to dread dentists in general. They'll be my preferred oral healthcare people for life!

I found that for a small town it is fairly good-sized as flea markets go. There is a lot of trash and treasures (what is what is up to each persons interpretation) mixed together all over the place. The Four Seasons Flea Market occupies what must be at least two former storefronts plus the whole basement under them. There is a lot of stuff to comb through and pick around. It is a surprisingly clean place considering all the merchandise. The prices are about what I would have expected around the area. Don't expect to come here and find the Mona Lisa for a song--what you'd expect to pay in larger towns and other communities applies here too. After all, this is a business and the days of nickel & dime prices for places like this are a distant memory for even the most die-hard optimists. The prices seemed a bit high on some things but not bad on others. The lady at the register was willing to barter a little on some items depending on who was selling them. I'd say that as long as you come to the Four Seasons Flea Market with a realistic set of expectations, you shouldn't leave disappointed. I myself will be returning a few more times as I saw plenty of nice collectibles hiding on the shelves.

Fawick Park is one of those overlooked gems that everyone drives by. It sits between two viaducts going in and out of downtown Sioux Falls so the rumble of traffic fades and rises constantly. If you don't know exactly where to look and fail to ask a local, it's easy to miss. Once you do find it, parking is on the street but make sure you feed the hungry meters. There is a full-sized cast of Michelangelo's "David" with no fig leaf, just the way the original was made. David has been a presence in downtown Sioux Falls since the early 1970s when he was placed here and had a virtual jungle planted around him for the sake of conservative decency. Eventually the jungle gave way but not so much because opinion had changed as it was found that Fawick Park had been the former site of a coal gasification plant that left a toxic legacy. The entire park had to be literally dug out and hauled away. The park was eventually rebuilt but with David turned to look towards the West and downtown and moved closer to the street since his old spot was now in a floodplain. In spite of the traffic noise, Fawick Park is a pleasant enough park but just be aware that a few people hanging around the park tend to make photographers uncomfortable at times even when they are plainly shooting the replica of David.

You can't beat the price for gently used furniture. Granted some of it looks a little dated, but it isn't anything that a little paint could fix.

On a lark, I dropped in on Olivia's mid-afternoon today to sightsee and shop a little if anything caught my interest. The staff was quite pleasant and didn't have the attitude of a person wishing they could work anywhere else. They were professional, discretely inquiring if there was anything in particular I was looking for, then left me alone to wander at my leisure. They never made me feel uncomfortable when I settled on my purchase and didn't try to push unnecessary extras. I think I was more nervous about the other gentlemen than anything else but as the custom, nobody approached anyone else unless they'd walked in together, joking about visiting Olivia's. Aside from being exiled to a small industrial park on the eastern outskirts of Tea and having shorter business hours than many gas stations (not their fault -- you can blame uptight city and county officials under pressure from know-it-all religious conservatives) there is nothing to dislike about Olivia's. Word of advice: if you park at the back of the building but are not coming in for the theaters, you need to come around to the front door. The back door is strictly for the theaters.

Not impressed. Dyson has a strict policy about acceptable practices and requiring a $60 "deposit" before Fonder will even look at my vacuum while under warranty isn't one of them. My Dyson had been to Fonder just four weeks before today and the repair man made a point of emphasizing that he'd cleaned the filters and vacuum before letting me pick it up. As it turns out, no he didn't. When I showed up today to drop off my Dyson for service again, that's when Fonder tried to spring the $60 deposit requirement on me. I walked out with my vacuum and contacted Dyson who quickly sent me to another business. I will never take any of my business to Fonder when it comes to Dyson and if you read this, just beware of their sneaky double-dipping policy.
