One of my favorite sites of incunabula & later records & books of esoteric knowledge & historical papers.
A medieval pattern book for scribes composed of two parts and dating from around 1510 and hailing from Swabia, Germany - including lots of wonderful calligraphy.

Walla Walla, Washington,, USA GOTR Music Festival weather.
The city where i live shows little traffic from the festival. I notice the B&Bs seem filled. Hard to be certain.
Wednesday morning had a thunderstorm & cloudburst for about thirty minutes that kept the dust down. It was hot, 100º-107º/33º-41º and the night cooled adequately.
A wind is now steady from the west, up the Columbia Gorge geographically, and rainstorms have hit NW Washington State and the Seattle & Sound with heavy rainfall. The sky at noon shows a slight reddish haze of high ash and is good. The winds are to increase throughout the day & evening, until about 23:00 when they drop off. Temps are to remain cool in the mid-80s/≈29º through the weekend. Lows in the high 50ºs/ 14º. 

Shade cloth are now fully rigged to my satisfaction. Winds may approach 50 mph tonight, gust of 35 mph steady. Just took photos and they look steady. AC rarely starts before 16:00 in recent 90s/100s. That is a delay of hours before shade cloth

They have no weight pulling on the fabric & are to keep the lines snug, not tight, so the cloth doesn't blow in the wind. (slapping up against the house constantly will shorten the life of the shade cloth)
Friday we had a dust storm/ windstorm and they could rarely be heard.

They're not so provident as a grapevine. They are immediately effective & inexpensive: Instant trees. IR that I do not gain I do not need to cool.

I imagine I'll hear it. There are many venues and they'll turn Main Street into smaller venues with dancing and wine!
The main stage is in a bowl that should be audible where I live. A night to climb on the roof. Not drink wine.

"The man that had a weapon on his person was considered to be a coward.
   Fighting was cruel fun. The men in those days were much stronger than they are in this age. Up to the war, 1861, men did not go armed, but now it is a common thing. Some attend church with a pistol in their hip pocket. This is a disgrace for any one. It is a constitutional right for us to have fire arms for our protection, but we should use them in the right way"

This is the opinion of a Southern Civil War veteran. What a difference 150 years of ignorance presents! 

The NRA, once a gun and hunting safety association— now represent gun makers. The more fear you have—the greater their profits! There is an idiot born every minute—most of them live.

Shade cloth draws up on the inside for rainy weather. Anchors set and painted with house number. There is a bored dog in the doorway.

Walla Walla at 10:23 PDT has just finished about 45 minutes of steady cool rain. The ridges eastward may have had the benefit as well. The breezes of several days has finally dropped off.

My shade cloth experiment is a success.

My AC has booted before 12:00 most of the last six weeks, by 14:30 certainly. It has these last two days not booted the AC until 16:00 when I begin the evening cooling cycle to 76º. Last year the demand for cooling season extended through October and the past calendar year exceeded the demand for heating. I expect this $120 will pay for itself before December.

14:30; outside valley, full sun, no wind, temps range 93-98º 33-36º
Interior temp is 75º and AC has not booted. It would have been running at least 90 minutes before shade cloth. It's set at 78º/25º
