a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent
glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet.

2020 Archeology Channel Film Festival

Next month (May 14-17), the Archeology Channel is going virtual with their annual film festival.

With a ticket going for only five (5) bucks, this is probably well worth tearing yourself away from Tiger King for a few days.

Long Weekend

Taking a little break from the ... break.

In case you're bored and have absolutely nothing better to do, below are a few links that might keep you busy for at least a little while.

Yellerstone has links to their webcams hereOld Faithful is the first one on the page (ignore the out-of-date prediction).  Scroll down for several others.

Into architecture?  Hey, who's not?!?!  Virtual tours of Frank Lloyd Wright works are posted here.  Scroll down to find them.  If they're keeping up with the schedule, a third video should be posted sometime today.

Interested in what a thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail is like?  My journal starts here.  Just click on the "next" button to go from post to post.  Plenty of others if you click the Appalachian Trail link toward the top left.  Then, just chose a year and explore!

Did you miss old posts with excuses for missing practices?  Start reading here and use links within that post to view more.  They were entered each as they were posted, so don't give me a hard time about the grammar and spelling.

Back in the day, this blog was frequented by a real turd.  He used to post idiotic & nasty comments.  Eventually, I'd had enough and posted the troll's IP Address (above).  In chronological order, here are those links:

Wrap yer minds 'round this one:
