When a man's an empty kettle he should be on his mettle,
And yet I'm torn apart.
Just because I'm presumin' that I could be kind-a-human,
If I only had heart.

I'd be tender - I'd be gentle and awful sentimental
Regarding Love and Art.
I'd be friends with the sparrows ... and the boys who shoots the arrows
If I only had a heart.

Forget Las Positas...a club with zero position in the Bay Cup. Halberstadt is good...as is the Massialas Foundation at Halberstadt (The M Team)....but I prefer San Francisco Fencers Club, as does my son...now a World Cup fencer.

Among the small, handful of photography authors I'd pre-order a book from, sight-unseen, Zack Arias is at the top of the list (even above Dave Jackson or Joe McNalley).

<proudPapa style=obnoxiousBlatherskite> Coverage of Zack's CIF-San Francisco All-City fencing tournament. Zack's match can be found at minute 59, award at 1:25 and his post-game interview at 1:31. For those not familiar to fencing, this is what a close bout looks like, the two finalists battling it out until the end - with our freshman coming out the champion! </proudPapa> http://www.playonsports.com/channels/fencing/events/60083

A must have for the teen fencer who consumes six boxes of cereal per day (like most teenage boys).

It would appear that strobists (photogs keen on lighting things with small, handheld flashes rather than expensive, large strobe lights) are gaining some momentum in the marketplace. Hallelujah! Happy capitalism!

Next time you see a smiling dolphin, you'll think twice now won't you? :-)
