At the end of September we had a super moon eclipse. A tripod, a cloudless night and a few rum and cokes produced these pictures.

Flying Fortress

Few things send me running for the camera quicker than the unmistakable, low growl of a big prop airplane. In this case a vintage B-17 bomber cruising over the neighborhood.

Why Google Sucks

A company that bolts a camera on top of a car  and drives up and down pretty much every road in the county so we can have super cool mapping with curbside views would normally get my vote as a company that doesn’t suck.

But on Easter Sunday this is the Google landing page . . .

Google

They chose to recognize the birthday of Cesar Chavez instead of  the resurrection of Christ. I am sure Cesar was a great guy but holy cow, are you kidding me?

Hello Bing!

I am afraid this it too true. . . .

…right now.

We just want you all on a list so we know where you are when we do.

If that takes a law requiring you to have your driver’s license scanned when you buy ammunition, go to the range etc. It’s okay.

If it means you have to get a license every 5-years… Who does it really hurt?

Should you sell your gun to someone else and we have new laws making you liable for their actions… All the better.

Nobody wants bad things to happen.

Just respect our authority to “slightly” limit what kind of guns you can own.

Accept that we can make “small” changes to the bill of rights without amending it.

Don’t you understand?

It’s all within reason.

The way we see it there is nothing to disagree with here….  you agree with us, right?  Of course you do.  You’re not insane…

We care about you… and your children.  Often…

Pray for Rain

Weather, moisture in particular,  drives quail population more than anything else. If you hunt quail in west Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico or southern Arizona, this graph is a total bummer.

Also, Texas is on fire . . .

shit.
