That was fast. It seems like Spring had only started, and now it’s Autumn (on the Chilean coast 1,400 miles south of the Equator). Dang.

I saw the Blood Moon in full Eclipse this morning. This picture (not my photo) was closest to what I saw this morning in southern Illinois near the Indiana border. One description I read today was that during a Blood Moon, we see all the sunrises and all the sunsets of Earth projected onto the […]

Sunset at 10:05 PM Picture from Edmonton, Alberta Province taken yesterday from the plane on final approach to landing. The daylight time is amazingly long in the summer: It’s light outside from about  4:00 AM to about 11:00 PM!  

Maid Service / housekeeping was running very late at my 2-star (I am being generous with the rating) hotel today. By 2:00 PM they had managed to remove the used towels, but the beds were unmade and my essential coffee ration had not been replenished. At about 5:00 PM I retrieved some coffee packages from […]

Two lessons from the biker attack on a family in NY 1. Given a choice, try to avoid jurisdictions like New York, New Jersey, DC and California. 2. Make sure that all adults and teenagers in your family can use weapons. Much more at the link, above. Be wise. Stay safe. Travel well.

Layers and layers of fact-checking have failed at CNN. (Seen at,  Heh.) CNN: The Most Trusted Name In News. Yea, right.  

Unless a better picture shows otherwise, I’m seeing a semi-auto pistol. Not a “Machine Gun” here. Selector positions seem to show only Safe and Fire … no “Auto” in enlarged picture: The media doesn’t get many firearm articles right, do they?

Excerpt: Formula One searched for answers on Monday after headline-grabbing British Grand Prix tire blowouts plunged the sport into crisis and triggered talk of a possible driver boycott in Germany next weekend.

When guardians of freedom are banned, the occupants of the UK are on their own. The UK has been disarmed of weapons; now it is being disarmed of ideas. My advice for the UK? Escape Now or Stand up and Fight! Create your own destiny – or cower under the rule of these thought police […]

When I travel, I peek into gunshops. I look at their stock; their arrangements; their people.  Occasionally, I am treated to an exceptionally good place to do business. Today was one of those days.

Sometimes air travel has its disruptions – even on a bright and sunny day. My flight connection yesterday afternoon was to link through New York’s Kennedy airport, but as soon as our plane left the gate, the pilot shut down the engines and announced that JFK had a ground hold in effect while a ‘certain […]

The kiosks for the US Customs and Border Protection’s Global Entry program went dark today. The agent manning international border checkpoint at the DFW Airport claimed the outage was nationwide.

Home again. Took a picture of the Grand Canyon on the way, but at 33,000 feet altitude and 25 miles away it looks like a drainage ditch.

For just 90 cents. What a deal!  

62 Degrees with highs in the mid 60’s forecast through the end of the week in Fremont/San Jose, CA. Too bad I’m always rushing to go here and there – I could have grabbed some interesting pictures along the way.

I travel. A lot. And sometimes, I backtrack to places I have been to earlier in my life. These places provide interesting before and after snapshots for the ‘camera’ of my memory. Rock Hill, South Carolina – the home of my great grandparents, is where I find myself today. Since the last time I was […]

Oktoberfest Begins in Munich Beer and Boobs! What’s not to like?

Arrived into the home airport slightly behind schedule, but all is good. I met some more interesting folks at GBR VII and look forward to the next GBR meet-up! I’m looking for who to credit for donating the Sig-Sauer Adaptive Carbine Platform (ACP-Enhanced) that I won in the Saturday raffle. It’s very cool. I installed […], where I have personally purchased several interesting weapons sponsored our GBR VII breakfast.  Yummy! We met up at the range for some always challenging Steel Challenge shooting.  The fastest time I saw was posted by Derrick – The Packing Rat – with a total time of 2.24 seconds for five targets.  Amazing! Tonight is […]
