Remembrances (1906)

Now, read the account of the '06 Earthquake as recorded by Arnold Genthe, photographer of City Hall (above) and his famous shot down Sacramento Street:

This one is worth the time it takes to read. So, read it.

Remember the Days?

Sorry. I guess I'm feeling morose.

Tulsa Needs Parking Lessons

I'm having great difficulty with text wrapping.
In any case, this guy driving his wife's Volvo ('cause only women buy Volvos, right?) went to park in the bank's parking structure.

He's an excellent driver, right? ('cause all men are excellent drivers.)
So, he backs into the parking stall, on the seventh level, in Tulsa Oklahoma.
And, his pictures will live forever.

Is this applicable in other circumstances?

Two Airplanes. Different Times. Different Missions

I just couldn't avoid the comparisons.

That's a Russian Flying Battleship from WWII.

And an American Reaper from right now.

Interesting contrasts.

New Walnut Creek Restaurant

Lunch this Friday with Dear Wife #1 at Eleve (place accents over the first and last "e") in town. It's in that weird triangle bounded by Locust, Civic, N.Main next to the Honda dealer and kity-corner from police headquarters.

This is, ostensibly, a Vietnamese-fusion restaurant. Whatever, the food is delicious. I'll return for dinner, where the peanut-carpaccio is on the menu. Good service, a bit pricy, might be noisy when full.

I'll give a preview of the calimari. Go to for lots more.
