Do We Have -

any friends of Dartmouth out there?

If so, you may recall this image.

Dartmouth used to be a college. I believe it is now a university.

It's mostly covered with snow.

Today's pic is due a HT to

(click on the image; it's a big'un. Suitable for computer wallpaper.

On The Other Hand. . .

There is always the (almost) infinite array of decorative materials used to differentiate subdivision houses one from another. ("Mine is a graystone house 3 down from the corner.")("On the right.")

Oh, well.

I Am Currently Interested

in this macro stuff. Here's an intimate view of corn:

and then, who says that stair railings cannot be interestingly designed?

(please note that neither of these beauties is of my taking.)

Coit Tower

It was truly a sparkling day in San Francisco after the storm had cleansed the air to a sparkling transparency.

Bring on the weather!

In The Central States

It's been a very long winter.

The picture is from Madison WI this morning.

Meanwhile, of course, we've had a very dry winter in California.

Up, Up, And Away. . .

Except that this is a blimp, not a balloon. (It can steer itself where it wants to go.)

Oh, well. I was impressed with the picture.

Aquatic Appetizers

Again, from Nina Camic's trips, this one to SouthWestern France.

Beautiful! But I'm glad that they're appetizers. There doesn't appear to be enough to satisfy my total appetite!
The oysters look great, of course.
The snails (I think) on the left also look tasty, but they're not very aquatic. And, behind them, the little things in the black shells may be more trouble than they're worth.

Those crawdads in the center are very attractive! There's not much meat inside, I fear. And, I speak from experience.

On the right, the shell full of minnows may be worthwhile, if they're salted a bit.

The question is. . . what's hiding behind the centerpiece? Enough to satisfy my stomach? Nina doesn't say, more's the shame.

Anyway, it's a great picture.
