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
Best known as one of the great songwriters of the 20th century, Clark took unassuming characters and mundane happenings and projected them into narratives with epic scope. The image of Clark, sleeves rolled, working with wood or words, earned him a reputation as a craftsman, a word that became the title of one of his recordings. [...] Clark's methodical process for creating things obscured a bright creative fire. [...] Clark's frame of choice ...

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.”

This is a presumably "First World" government that protects this depravity.

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.

As the Second Most Interesting Man in the World, I wholly endorse this. I endorse Dos Equis, too, but am so interesting that I don't take the money they would pay me. Jonathan Goldsmith seems like a nice guy.
He drove a garbage truck in LA and fibbed his way into Hollywood westerns. But Jonathan Goldsmith's big break was getting cast in Dos Equis beer commercials as "The Most Interesting Man in the World."

Glass Cactus at near the record water level for Lake Grapevine. The lake is 28 feet above what is considered normal.  #grapevine   #dallas   #texasflood   #rain   #texas

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.

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.

She / he has moved on. The web and the spider were there for several days. Probably off to look for better hunting.

A little doggie fun at Lake Grapevine today. It's on top of one of the picnic table shelters retrieving a ball its owner had thrown for it.

Why, yes, I reckon it IS over the top

One of two videos posted of the Lake Grapevine spillway. (the other was 5/31). I guess the City must own a quadcopter.  #texasflood   #dallas  #texas   #rain

A new Google+ feature? Maybe it's a case of "reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated." (thank you, MT)  Time will tell.
