Monday's view of the Olympics wearing their Thanksgiving weekend coating of snow. Then, the clouds came back.

It doesn't rain here EVERY day! (and days like this make up for the ones it does rain)

First day of Fall here on Raft Island opens with 50f this morning. It's up to 60 and sunny now. (meanwhile, it's up to 93f back in DFW) #gladIbailed

Momentum is amazingly fragile in an idea's early stages.

I discovered, for myself, Guy Clark late in his career. He painted vivid pictures with his lyrics. One of my favorites is "Dublin Blues" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XQGjkBuMGAU

Shredder mania

A little overenthusiastic getting rid of some of life's detritus. Maybe I need a commercial model. Or maybe I just need to not let the stuff accumulate.

I have no words I can publish here that can describe what I think of the Danish government and the whalers it protects. "Despicable barbarians" is so inadequate. 
One more tidbit of awareness to spread, and then we'll get back to the regular programming...  which has, admittedly, been much more active on FB than G+, but this is important stuff... 
There is a great video in this update (gets a bit graphic after a while, but the people are amazing). Such courage and passion, we could only hope to stand up like this even once in our lives, for anything. 
Heck, I'm sitting on my ass at home typing this out while others are pro-actively, at risk to themselves, trying to save lives. The least we could do is gain awareness and think about what we should be doing as we carry on with our Saturday.
Some amazing quotes in this....
“We were one small boat and five bodies against 500 people on the beach and 50 boats pushing … but there’s no reason not to fight.”
"12 Sea Shepherd volunteers have now been arrested and 490 pilot whales have been killed this year alone. But we will continue to StandUp for the pilot whales."
“We are much stronger than they are. As a movement, they’ve got no chance against us.”

Dumpster diving (in my bedroom closet)

Oh, gawd! ... there are 5 1/4" diskettes in there! And Zip disks ... well, there's a USB Zip drive, at least. Time and technology wait for NO ONE.

Stepped out on my balcony a little while ago to be greeted by this guy. "Hi! Won't you step into my parlor?" At least six inches tip to tip. I wished him well and left him to his dark business.
