Speaking of the Icelandic volcano Katla, a sizable eruption could slow down global warming for a while. If it does it almost certainly means crop failures too so it is not something to hope for.

Our flight through Iceland in a month might be interesting.
Iceland raised the alarm after its largest volcano was hit by the biggest tremors since 1977. Two quakes larger than four in magnitude early Monday rocked the crater of Katla, the country’s Met Office said in a statement. That was followed by at least 10 more tremors at the volcano, which rises 1,450 metres (4,757 feet) into the air on the North Atlantic island’s southern coast. There were no immediate reports of casualties or damages to property...

In Sweden nobody is hurt when a migrant rapes a victim. That is also true if two victims are raped in the same area because the police used Code 291...

Worthwhile reading in light of the potential for WW III as promoted by the Hillary. If you were ever scared this would be the time to be more so.
The main architect of Washington’s plan to rule the world has abandoned the scheme and called for the forging of ties with Russia and China. While Zbigniew Brzezinski’s article in The American Interest titled “Towards a Global Realignment” has largely been ignored by the media, it shows that powerful members of the policymaking establishment no […]

The Clinton campaign lies about everything so the denials sure ring hollow.

For most of the passage going south we just sat quietly, soaking in the scenery. We saw almost no other boats out on the water until we were halfway down through the archipelago. We did see boats tied up to islands here and there and we marveled at how many beautiful little safe anchorages there ...

Having seen that I'm glad I'm not going to any event that might play the anthem ... it would be very hard to even consider standing.
 
OMG. I'd never read the complete lyrics to The Star Spangled Banner. Here are the final lines of the third verse :

"No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave,
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave."

Woody Guthrie's "This Land" can actually be sung and the complete version should be our national anthem.

No one seems to be aware that our national anthem literally celebrates the murder of African-Americans.

No Wiffi for almost 5 days ... wonderful !
The picture above is from the foggy night before we headed out on our latest Bali excursion. A few weeks ago someone slammed the door on summer and suddenly it was cold. We lucked out during our prior short hop inside the archipelago - we got some beautiful weather while being geographically ...

Wonderful meat soup. Wonderful bread with herring. Just simple and really good food.

We went to this restaurant because of the 19 (?) 5-star (!) reviews. The food wasn't excessively expensive but the lobster feast was so smothered in heavy sauces that you really couldn't taste anything but the sauce. This is the first meal in Iceland that has been disappointing.
