Travel Madrid: The Prado
2017-04-07. One reason I'm usually behind the camera is that I don't like to be in front of it. So I'm not likely to pose in front of the sights I'm seeing to take a snap to prove I've been there. And selfies belong to a younger mindset. However, I enjoy watching other people do that thanks to some inspiration from +Mee Ming Wong. Observing observers observe.

Portals and Passages: Córdoba, The Judería
2017-04-03. The old Jewish quarter in Córdoba is a delightful twist of streets which stay shaded and cool most of the day. At 8PM, everyone is at dinner and many of the streets deserted. They were so quiet, clean, and neat that they invited exploration. As the tourist board describes them, they are "...more atmospheric and less commercialized than Seville." We found this to be true.

Portals and Passages: Damson Lane
2017-04-02. Sunday was perfect weather for the Manchester Marathon..unfortunately given that injury prevented participation. However, never waste a fine day in England. So we walked along Damson Lane. I was surprised that the trees were still not leafed out so late in spring.

At the end of the lane, we saw a dead fox which had been slung over a gate. A warning? And to whom? Other foxes? Or people? I do not include the photo here out of respect of the tender sensibilities of my G+ audience.

You know, G+ used to be smart enough to know when a photo was taken and tag it with the correct date. Now it tags it with the upload date...so any historical data is lost. But we documentation writers have something to do again since the machines have given up caring.

Portals and Passages: Meadow Cottage
2017-03-31. A sunny arrival in rural Cheshire. We do our usual circuit around Hall, Church, and Davenport Lanes peeking into front gardens before cutting back home across fields via a public footpath. I particularly liked this post box.

Politics: We Don't Need No Stinkin' Experts
From the article, "Pirro raised further questions when her rant made clear that she didn’t want to shift any blame to President Trump: “No one expected a business man to completely understand the nuances, the complicated ins and outs of Washington and its legislative process.” "

Actually, I did expect the person running for the job to have the knowledge and expertise to handle it. When I hire someone, I want them to know what they're doing...whether it's piloting a plane, cleaning my teeth, fixing my car, installing my father's pacemaker, playing a happy tune, mixing my cocktail, or smoking barbecue.

So what Trump voters are saying is that they specifically hired someone who didn't know what he was doing and they think we all should be okay with that?

Politics: Trump Credits Democrats with Stunning Save of Health Care
He added: “We all learned a lot. We learned a lot about loyalty.” That line right there...reminding us once again that Trump does not consider himself the ultimate civil servant of we, the people; he envisions himself as king and lord of the realm.

Japan: Wagashi
Family business through six generations. I especially like the moment they look through the original cookbook (with gloved hands), using designs and even molds handed down for over a hundred years.
