Trying to get back into blogging regularly — so here is a striking photo I found in the “Middle Earth” group at flickr. Looks like an intriguing place to visit.  Judging from the one of the other pools the photographer placed this in, this photo was taken in some national park in Quebec, Canada.  If you like it, just click the picture and you can leave a comment on f/G’s photo page.

Here’s a report of researchers restoring vision in patients with corneal damage by coating contact lenses with stem cells.  It looks like that vat of rejuvenating stem cells is one step closer.

This Dilbert strip makes a good point. Capitalism can’t work if people (or groups of people, such as in a corporation) cannot trust one another. That’s why we have contracts and courts to enforce contracts, so people can enforce agreements if trust breaks down.


Mother’s Day

It’s Mother’s Day tomorrow and I’m taking my mother out to breakfast.  We’re going early, so maybe we’ll beat the crowds.  Afterwards, I may be buying an electric guitar at Guitar Center.  I’ve been mulling it over for a few weeks.  I’ll see how I feel about it tomorrow.


I upgraded my cell phone to an iPhone a few days ago. I’m liking how the interface on this thing works, and there are thousands of cool applications available. In fact, I’m using an iPhone app to write and post this.
I’ll be starting a two week vacation soon. Yay for me!

Work Almost Done

At the beginning of the year, I started a project on Flickr where I take a self-portrait every day for a year. Here’s the photo for today — I’m holding a painting in acrylics that I’ve almost finished. I’m trying to be more creative this year.  You can see the whole set here.
