I'm in this video - but with my back to the camera at around 0:28. Oh, there's my face in the background at 0:20 (I'm wearing a green fleece thing.) It was a great season, particularly when one considers the huge stress and time pressure of getting an entire new theatre facility constructed in about 90 days.

Those of you who came to the shows - yes, thank you. For the rest of you, you have next season next summer to redeem yourselves.

Today I met a person who is an expert in this field.

This is one of the two lighthouses we have here in Santa Cruz. The older one is on an eroding cliff and unless something is done soon it is going to fall into the sea. This one, on the other hand, seems rather more solidly grounded (although every now and then the waves come crashing around it and even onto it.)
A few years back there was a proposal to remove Santa Cruz’ iconic mile buoy, which despite its moniker is actually more than a mile offshore. Proponents claimed, among other things, that the Harbor’s Walton Lighthouse was all that boate

This is a good article about how our tax policies, particularly the weak taxation rates on capital gains and high incomes, have damaged the middle class, damaged actual innovation and development, and led us into a stagnant rich-become richer system of financial gain by timing and manipulation rather than actual investment. In other words it says that the "trickle down" theory is pure bunk.
In Greenwich, Darien, and New Canaan, Connecticut, bankers are earning astonishing amounts. Does that have anything to do with the poverty in Bridgeport, just a few exits away?

Even worse, the low rate of progression on business taxes doesn't push back against bubbles, nor does it cause money to be redirected to taxes to cover the period after the bubble bursts. That was one of the really elegant ideas that came out of the Bretton Woods era: taxes aimed directly at a single problem, that happen only if you're having the problem.

Just updated my Macbook to Sierra - so far no smoke has been seen coming out of the vents. And Siri seems to work - with the same mis-comprehensions as before.

Been running the beta for a while - no problems, did force me to upgrade the VPN connection to one client's site (overdue anyway), and while I understand the risks of using PPTP, I'm not sure I approve of Apple forcing the issue.

+Cathy Moran - The city report shows it as about 89% full, which is pretty good. There have been news reports that people here are still doing a good job of conserving. We are running at about 75 gallons/day (that's for the entire household).

I'm glad they are doing this. I read yesterday that the candidates imposed secret rules on the "moderators" which may prevent them from calling out lies in real time. This would fill that gap. But I doubt that these "debates" will change the minds of any voter, although I still have hopes that some of the protest votes for Stein or Johnson will come around to understand the risk.
 
Keep your internet device ... Phone, computer, pigeon, whatever, close by tonight during the debate and watch #Politifact  expose truth and lies in near real time!

+Brian Barcus - There were voting machines at the central counting centers that had 16-bit signed integer counters. They didn't understand why votes started going backwards after 32,768. (There were also some Brand-C routers that had SNMP MIB counters that started to go backwards after a while.) Some programmers never learn. Sigh.

There's a Citroen 11CV running around Santa Cruz. I've always thought that these were (are) really cool looking - in a 1940's European movie sort of way. I have ridden in one - the back seat is large with enough leg room that it's hard to reach the front seat backs.

Nowadays, the word limousine usually means a custom made or specialty vehicle. But in the 1930s and 40s, it was a fairly standard version of many cars and it meant lots of legroom for the rear seat.

I saw these guys play several times when I was a student at UC Berkeley. Their recordings were lost for ages because Mercury records never published their stuff except on vinyl.

About a decade ago I got in contact with the band and they cut me the one and only CD of their one album, including the cover art.

It is two months old and it's still burning... And so far fighting it has cost $208,000,000. There are still 2000 firefighters working to stop it. And it was caused by an illegal campfire.
Get details about the Soberanes Fire in Monterey County that began burning Friday, July 22, 2016 at 8:48 a.m. near East of Sobranes Creek, five miles south of Carmel Garrapata State Park..
