I have no idea, but here (in this part of Washington State), it goes on pretty much year around...



P.S. Those aren't leaves, exactly. They are those "helicopter seeds" things. But there is ALWAYS something being released from the trees around here...

No doubt.
But with the recent amount of water you've got laying around, you might want to consider installing a beach!
Of course, you will need to update your footwear:

I have a beach--a nice wide sandbar down on the river, but as far as your suggested footwear........
1. Ssssserpentsss. Venomous ssserpentsss.
2. I'd have to buy a pair of boots 3 sizes smaller than my foot.
3. I'd have to move clean out of the state to be able to wear those in public.

I'm thinking more of going Hispanic, knocking the heels off & taking up water skiing..

So, I just bought a fifth wheel with the ramp in back.......... The slide out idea would have been much more efficient had it worked out.


Yeah, I thought about the toy hauler, but it's nice to have the other beds at the opposite end away from ours, (for obvious reasons). Still breaks the mood though when your daughter asks you in the middle of the night, "Who's shaking the camper?" Anyway, I can still put the bike in the back of the truck.

This I took en route to Nagoya, Japan on April 25th. The flight takes me to within about 120 nautical miles of Pyongyang, North Korea. It just so happened that day the Dear Leader decided to test a missile from a sub. Didn't see it. Don't really want to either.

Near the radio site on White Tanks there was a sign pointing to a trail to "Silver Springs". After a quarter mile or so there were a couple of car springs half buried in the ground that were painted silver. It was a running joke among the tech's that visited the site. I wonder if they are still there?

I've seen a few deer up there in the spring time. There is running water and a small waterfall there sometimes in the County Park but it quickly disappears underground. Lots of Indian hieroglyphics on the rocks near the stream.

Oh, let me show you the good stuff. This was taken December 9th, 2015 at Tianjin airport. This is the city where that huge explosion from the illegal chemical storage occurred. Do you see the vague outline of the tall skinny tower?




This picture was taken December 10th, 2015. It's the control tower. And it's not that far away. Fog? Smoke? Nope, smog. Air pollution so thick you can taste it.

It would appear you have sufficient nesting and building materials for birds, beavers and anything else that should choose to reside with in the county, Your local wildlife thank you.

Yeah, wel, it's pushing the fence over and next flood will finish it off if I on't get over there and pull it on my side of the fence. Al that crap came from my brother's property when he had some trees cut up and piled and didn't burn it. Until I get a gate way put in, I can't get over there without just cutting the fence and I don't really want to cut the fence. Rained today so I won't be able to get to putting in a gate till tomorrow or Saturday.
That high tensile Bakaert gaucho wire (Made in Ky, USA) may give a little but won't stretch all out like that low carbon Red Brand does. Lots of eople hate hi tensile because it's so stiff, unforgiving, and hard to work with but I won't use anything else.

One should consider the question, was this trip really necessary?

My BIL works for Cummins and spends a lot of time in China and the far east, he has some sinus sensitivities. Always comes back messed up and can't breath for weeks, then turns around and goes back,

Saw that done once, I got paid to help rebuild that fence. Told them not to do it before they spread out the kerosene. They didn't listen.

I'm not Hudini, but I'll try to answer in his absence.
Probably pretty necessary for Hudini to present for the trip, considering he's the driver of the plane. (Commercial airline pilot)

I'm very lucky in that I've never had any issue with asthma or other breathing problems. I quit smoking about 6 years ago so I don't have that added to my burden. I wear my PM2.5 mask most times I'm out and about, especially if it's a bad day.

I wish I had my camera ready yesterday. I saw a purple convertible Bentley and a beautiful dark blue Lamborghini. The Bentley was laughable but the Lambo was awesome. The heat radiating off that thing was amazing.

It's routine to offset 3nm right of track because the airways are so congested they need lateral separation to see us all. In this particular ATC control area of Dalian they use 6nm quite a bit. Maybe their radar resolution is less than other areas?

As a side note: I just watched a cool video where foreign journalists were flown around North Korea on their state airline Air Korya. Other than the 50's tech Soviet aircraft the video showed a couple places they visited briefly. Did you know the USS Pueblo is still in North Korea? It's in Pyongyang as a museum piece on a river. And it's still a commissioned US Navy ship.

Life, it seems, will fade away
Drifting further every day
Getting lost within myself
Nothing matters, no one else

I have lost the will to live
Simply nothing more to give
There is nothing more for me
Need the end to set me free

Things not what they used to be
Missing one inside of me
Deathly lost, this can't be real
Cannot stand this hell I feel

Emptiness is filling me
To the point of agony
Growing darkness taking dawn
I was me, but now he's gone

No one but me can save myself, but it's too late
Now I can't think, think why I should even try

Yesterday seems as though it never existed
Death greets me warm, now I will just say goodbye

So I was working Monday night flying to Sanya. This is on Hainan Island just off the southern tip of China close to Vietnam. You might remember Hainan as the landing spot of the US Navy EP-3E ELINT aircraft after it collided with a Chinese fighter over the South China Sea in 2001. So as I'm getting close I remember our Dear Leader is visiting nearby Vietnam. Since my iPhone takes crappy night pictures and you can't see much anyway, here is a shot of my nav screen. VVNB is Ha Noi, VVDN is Da Nang, and VVPB is Phu Bai.



Now this one surprised me. While on the ground in Sanya I saw this after it was unloaded from the forward cargo bay. (We haul lots of cargo) Any guesses what the Chinese words say?


It says "Made in America". Ha! And you only thought we import Chinese stuff.

I did an outdoor exhibit the other night for a local art walk, selling prints. Most of my work is from photographing abandoned buildings, and the building I set up in front of is one of them - part of the gig is trying to advocate for its restoration.

An interesting and stately looking old building. Is it in Waukegan Ill or in one of the other 'Waukegans'?
This one is about 10 miles from me "as the crow flies".

^It's Waukegan, IL. The building dates back to 1925 and was originally a bank, then a Walgreens and professional offices. It's been vacant since 1985. I've been inside and it's gorgeous, the bank hall is still largely intact and has polished marble walls with a plaster ceiling. Walgreens did most of the damage, and the basement is a mess (the vault is still there from when it was a bank); but it's an easy restoration considering some of the other ruins I've been in.


Much has changed since you would have been there. Like many rust belt towns, its economy was hit hard by the loss of lakefront industry, and the opening of Belvidere and Lakehurst Malls decimated the downtown retail district (the latter is now gone, torn down 12 years ago). A former mayor's bonehead decision to break-up the city's car culture in the downtown area didn't help.

Today the city is trying to reinvent itself, and is finding a niche as a city for the arts. The Genesee Theatre was beautifully restored almost 12 years ago and draws big names, usually old rockers and comedians - sometimes movies. The Karcher Hotel has been restored into lofts exclusively for artists, and has a couple of galleries on the ground floor. They're trying to lure the George Lucas museum (that Chicago is losing due to bickering between City Hall and NIMBY's) to the lakefront, where OMC's plant used to be. There's the monthly ArtWauk which draws decent crowds, they convert vacant storefronts along Genesee Street into galleries in an attempt to draw potential tenants. It's a nice town - it has its issues, but it's hardly the cesspool people make it sound like, and is slowly on the rebound.

Isn't it strange that after a bombing, everyone blames the bomber, his upbringing, his environment, his culture, his mental state but … after a shooting, the problem is the gun?

I love crab!!!
When I was very small and living in Pensacola, my father and uncle caught a bunch of crabs and when they showed them to me, I was so scared of them that I did not want to get near them.

I love boiled crabs, but to me, a lot of work for the little bit of meat in them. Lots of fun catching them tho.
(we have the same blue crab here on the Gulf Coast)

Ah, it's not so bad. A dozen crabs takes about an hour to clean and yields roughly 3/4 of a pound of meat.

At $30 a pound that's a better rate than working at MacDonalds. ( for now )
