Tuesday, June 27, 2006

passed the weekend with mom & meg ... watching the dog ...

watching the pretty begonias ...

watching the accidental flowers down by the burn pile ...

watching that stuff right there ...

watching the just-trapped critter in the cage ...

watching clouds ... lots of clouds ...

& had a really good time doing it

my bro on the international herpetological news front ...

BBC NEWS | Science/Nature | Snake displays changing colours ...

The new species was described by Mark Auliya from the Zoologisches Forschungsmuseum Alexander Koenig in Bonn, and John Murphy and Harold Voris from the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago.

he claims the news is six months old ... but it's news to me ... (thanks for the link, mom)

A life's labor firmly rooted in soil | Chicago Tribune ...

From a sleepy stagecoach stop when his family settled there in 1834 to the fastest growing city in Illinois today, Plainfield has long since traded tractors for tract housing. Its population nearly tripled from 1990 to 2000, and doubled again since then, according to census estimates released last week.

But Culver, a self-labeled 75-year-old country boy who still cherishes his copy of the 1906 Sears and Roebuck catalog, is not just a man out of step with this century. He was out of step with the last one too.

In 1975, a Tribune article declared him to be among the last of a dying breed--farmers who work their fields with draft horses, the massive beasts that once pulled everything from plows to streetcars.

Thirty-one years later, Chicagoland farm bureau officials say that Culver is no longer one of the last. He is the last.

Living With War: The Great Debate

But to everyone's surprise, including his own, Young neither burnt out nor faded away. To paraphrase Bob Dylan, it seemed like the only thing he knew how to do was to keep on keeping on. It's been quite a journey. Or, as Elliot Roberts once put it: 'It's not like the art is separate from the life, it's one and the same with Neil.' Only Dylan, indeed, has walked that line with the same kind of devil-may-care determination and utter disregard for the vagaries of musical taste. Only Dylan walks on to a stage trailing such a mythology, such a surfeit of startling songs, such a devoted to-the-point-of- obsessive following. Put simply, Neil Young is one of the last great maverick geniuses of rock, and bone fide living legend to boot. Not that he gives a hoot about that either.

just spotted over at wood s lot ...

War is, at first, the hope that one will be better off; next, the expectation that the other fellow will be worse off; then, the satisfaction that he isn't any better off; and, finally, the surprise at everyone's being worse off. How is the world ruled and how do wars start? Diplomats tell lies to journalists and then believe what they read.
- Karl Kraus (1874-1936)

it was perfectly breezy there late this morning ... when i'd finished ripping weeds out of the front garden & shovelling some neighbor-dog poop & all & i was sitting getting air-cooled in the breeze looking at the birds & the lake & perfect puffy clouds & blue ... thinking words that might work here & i got some ... but now i forget ... i guess that means i'm on vacation
