Super Bowl?
I haven't been paying attention, is that super bowl thing over yet? I really don't see the point of watching bowling, anyway.

Telecommunication History
Today we enjoy instantaneous electronic communication with friends around the globe.  You might be interested to learn that 2016 is the bicentennial of Francis Ronalds’s electric telegraph.  Decades before the work of Samuel Morse, this young Englishman laid out his vision for a future world of telecommunication.
This is a long but not overly technical article.  Even if you only skim the first part I think you will be amazed a Francis Rolands's creativity and inventiveness.

Ferne Clyffe State Park
I have a project coming up that will require me to take and edit some video.  I have no video experience to speak of, so I'm trying to figure out settings and practice taking, editing, and rendering video files.  For a part of that practice I took this yesterday at Ferne Clyffe State Park near Goreville, IL, then edited and merged the files in Photoshop CC.  This comprises two video segments, one from Hawk's Cave, and one from Rebman Trail.  The trail is named after Emma Rebman (1864-1951), a local conservationist and teacher who's 120 acre property is now a part of the park.
The plaque honoring Ms. Rebman can be viewed here:

Thanks +lynn hughes!  That wasn't the best subject -- Hawk's Cave is a gigantic sandstone overhang, too big to get in one shot.  I thought video might help, but it's still difficult to represent.  Maybe a pano next time...

Stripey Fuzzy Fungi
I went looking for some fungi this morning and found a couple of examples.  These little ones were growing on a broken branch that was lying on the ground.  I propped up the branch and tried a few shots.  I'm making this one my contribution for #shroomshotsaturday +ShroomshotSaturday  curated by +Sabeena LoBello , +Patricia A , and +Keith Elliott.  They kind of remind me of the layers in the Grand Canyon.

VLC Media Player turns 15 years old today!

Has anyone used VLC with their Chromebook? There is an app in the Chrome Store just for Chrome OS devices. It has been available since this past December but I still have not tried it yet.

VideoLAN today announced that VLC, the world's most used media player, has turned 15 years old. The history is a bit complex here, but the anniversary is being celebrated in relation to when all VideoLAN software was relicensed to the GPL license on February 1, 2001.

I Think it Snowed?
I haven't been paying much attention to the snow reports from the east, but this time lapse video of forty inches of snow in Virginia caught my attention.

Ohio River OOB
The river is still out of banks as you can see from this photo taken yesterday at Fort Massac State Park. The boat launch is just on the other side of the small "island", under several feet of water. This amount of flooding at the park isn't uncommon, and probably happens at least once a year, usually in the spring.

Rollin' on the River
Well, not really, since this towboat and tow are moored just off Dorothy Miller Park. In fact, there were lots of tows sitting idle along the banks of the Ohio River yesterday. I'm not sure what they are waiting for, since Dam 52 (just upstream of here) should be fully open due to the extremely high water, so there would be no need to lock through. (If you're using the old Google+ you'll be able to see the location on Google Maps.)
This is a #phonephoto that I then edited with +ON1 Photo 10, just playing around to get a little practice with the new software.
