Circles and Wheels: This week’s Photo Challenge from Cee Neuner.

I just had to do this one, for my friend Cee, who doesn't live too far from me.  Circles make the world go round (see what I did there?), and trace the roughly-circular orbits of all the planets and their satellites.  Did you know that the ancient Egyptians did not use the wheel?  They found …

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #167: Colors of Autumn

Autumn is my very favorite season, especially after this year's unusually hot summer in the Pacific Northwest.  You could almost say that autumn came early this year, as our trees were dropping brown leaves and dry branches on our house all summer, due to the drought that accompanied the high temperatures. In the Pacific Northwest, …

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #166: Artificial Light

In our technological world, we beat back the darkness with copious artificial light, enabling us humans to utilize 24 of the 24 daily hours we are given.  In fact, there are groups who mourn the zillions of lumens of artificial light that our civilizations pour into the sky.  Personally, I prefer to celebrate the fact …

Hillsdale College CCA, the Rest of the Story

Now that you have been welcomed to Detroit...  Saturday night, we went to the Big Boy restaurant just a block from our hotel, and walked both ways.  On the way, we saw this sign, and I just had to laugh.  You may know that hotels and restaurants everywhere are having trouble hiring enough workers to …

Barack Hussein Obama, contributing to the ruination of his adopted city, Chicago

The well-known total narcissism of ex-president Barack Hussein Obama, got some great feedback today, on the subject of his Personal Library in Chicago (NOT his official Presidential Library).  It is not news that the Obama Steamroller flattened opposition from the neighborhood surrounding Jackson Park, to the decimation of numerous trees and other natural features which …

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #165: Going Wide (with pride)

I love taking photos of landscapes, since I normally notice the wide view.  I don't have a wide-angle lens for my normal point-and-shoot camera, nor my iPhone, which I have been using for most photography for the past two years.  I used to pooh-pooh all the people who are constantly using their phones to capture …

Terror on September 11

Twenty years ago, on September 11, 2001, a band of Islamic terrorists wrought havoc on our homeland of America.  They hijacked commercial airliners, and flew them into the World Trade Center in New York, the Pentagon in Washington DC, and, due to the courage of the passengers, into a field in Pennsylvania.  Everyone alive today …

Shades of the Soviet Gulag! The Government will inject you now.

The so-called president of the United States, whose mental competence is severely in question, has "mandated" that American citizens must undergo an invasive medical procedure if they are to retain their employment for the government, or private-sector government contractors.  What makes him think that he has that kind of power?  Under the Constitution, he has …
