William Shakespeare's 450th birthday
The baptismal register of the Holy Trinity parish church, in Stratford, shows the following entry for April 26, 1564: Gulielmus filius Johannes Shakespeare. The actual date of Shakespeare's birth is not known, but, traditionally, April 23, St George's Day, has been Shakespeare's accepted birthday,

Shakespeare was born and brought up in Stratford-upon-Avon. When I visited England back in the late 70's it was one of the places we visited. I remember riding a small train to Stratford, and then walking through the streets. All the homes looked straight out of the era with doorways that you had to duck down to get through. People we're shorter in those day's.

I had one class on Shakespeare in High School.  The teacher, I can't remember her name, took the time to explain the olde English. If you try to read his work without that knowledge it can be confusing.. Learning the meaning behind the words, as well as the intention and relevance to the scene, has left me with an appreciation of his works to this day.'s_Day

+Trey Pitsenberger We've been considering that island idea for a while. It pays to not read/watch the news. Shakespeare covers all bases. ;-)

Say goodbye to those old school plaster casts?

The Osteoid Medical cast, attachable bone stimulator is a 2014 A'Design Award winner.

"The cast is based on sound science: low-intensity pulsed ultrasound (LIPUS) has been found to reduce bone healing time by nearly 40% with just one 20-minute treatment a day. The therapy has been tricky to administer, because it requires placing ultrasound leads on the skin directly over the bone injury. That's impossible with an old-school plaster cast—but not with a 3D printed cast of the future."

"In order for the cast to perfectly fit to the patient’s limb, the area is scanned via a 3d body scanner. Then this data is transferred to a modeling software, where the overall size and geometry is decided depending on the medical situation."

This is just a concept and likely won't see use very soon. Still, with the way technology is progressing it may be sooner than later.

It's the season for sneezing
These are grains of pollen magnified. When you see the spikes and shapes of these things it's no wonder they cause irritation in the eys and nose.

A short, nine minute film that reminds us that we create our own reality. Why not choose one rich with possibilities? 
Kitsch? Maybe, I don't care.

"The story reflects a day in Lila's life, a dreamy girl who can’t resign to accept reality as flat as she perceives it, using her imagination to modify it."

+Marc Schnau I mentioned your greeting to Penny and she had this to say. "Gruß an Sie Herr Schnau von der Sierra Nevada. Verbreiten Sie die Nachrichten, wachsen Sie Lebensmittel besitzen!" Not bad for a 1.5 year old, eh? ;-)

Largest star discovered to date when compared to earth

Mind blowing information on our universe. If placed at the center of our Solar System, VY Canis Majoris's surface would extend beyond the orbit of Jupiter, although there is still considerable variation in estimates of the radius, with some making it larger than the orbit of Saturn. It's a billion times larger than our sun. 

The star is a very large and very luminous red "hypergiant". The various larger estimates of the size and luminosity fall outside the bounds of current stellar theory, both beyond the maximum predicted size of any star and far cooler than a star of its luminosity can become"

Here is a YouTube video on it:

Raven Master 1
This picture showed up in my Twitter stream today along with "Just been on a guided tour of The Tower of London with @ravenmaster1. Anyone who hasn't done it I highly recommend it." 

Now that has to be one of the greatest jobs ever. You have a great handle, wear a colorful uniform, and get to talk about, and roam through one of the most interesting and historical places in London.

Rather important job as well. The ravens of the Tower of London are a group of captive Common Ravens which live in the Tower of London. The group of ravens at the Tower comprises at least seven individuals (six required, with a seventh in reserve). The presence of the ravens is traditionally believed to protect the Crown and the Tower; a superstition holds that "If the Tower of London ravens are lost or fly away, the Crown will fall and Britain with it." Single handily responsible for the existence of Britain? On second thought, not sure I would want that job.

I wonder if he it the first Raven Master with a Twitter handle?

The 1959 Renault 900
A prototype from Renault built in 1959, from what I gather it was fitted with a V8 (built from 2 more conventional V4’s bolted together from another of Renaults models) slung out the back. Its unconventional, looking awkward, almost like it’s backwards and about to tip forward.

John Muir was born on this date in 1838
Living here in the Sierra Nevada we are reminded regularly of Muir and his works.  His letters, essays, and books telling of his adventures in nature,  have been read by millions. His activism helped to preserve the Yosemite Valley, Sequoia National Park and other wilderness areas. The Sierra Club, which he founded, is now one of the most important conservation organizations in the United States. One of the best-known hiking trails in the U.S., the 211-mile (340 km) John Muir Trail, was named in his honor. Other such places include Muir Woods National Monument, Muir Beach, John Muir College, Mount Muir, Camp Muir and Muir Glacier."

Interestingly there is a John Muir trail in his birthplace of Scotland. "The John Muir Way" is a new long distance path due to be officially opened today. It stretches across Scotland. The route follows Muir's steps from Helensburgh on the west coast - from where he boarded ship and set sail for America - back to his birthplace, Dunbar in East Lothian.

An original.
Here is what the search engines think of me.

I am a horticulturist by trade, and small garden shop owner. Enjoy writing, and have done so professionally for well over the last 20 years.  Excited about a wide range of subjects, and enjoy sharing with others.

I am willing to discuss religion from a historical point of view, I am not interested to hear people’s personal persuasions on god(s) or atheism. The same holds for politics.

Just met Dan. Lot's of very cool posters from 60's forward. Enjoyed reminiscing, and getting the background on many of them.
