A Mélange from Tiny House

Quiet day today so thought I would take a moment and point out some interesting sites or sights, either way. There is some cutting edge art out there, all viewable from the comfort of your own home, no fee to enter the gallery - I mean come now, it doesn’t get any better then that. Try walking into the local art gallery without any pants on and see what happens. With these galleries no shoes, no shirt, no service is out the window. Along with the comfort factor you’ll be treating your senses to some thought provoking pieces. You may even feel your IQ climb a notch or two, but no guarantees. It is a rare opportunity on the net today to see something besides porn. These art sites actually provide something useful and cultural.

I am sure there are lots of others out there. You are assured of meeting lots of interesting people by following the links on my page, and following links on theirs, and on and on.

Make sure you look up at Moonrise on 3 Mar. Most places will be able to see a Lunar Eclipse. Head to this site to see what the coverage is like in your area, or check your local news site and once you get past who is leading the pack in American Idol, you may actually find something on the eclipse, or not. I am going to try to take some pictures and have been practicing the last few nights. Hopefully it will all work out – now if I could only get my neighbor to shut off his back light.

Lots of talk about carbon footprints since an Inconvenient Vice President got an Oscar for “Best Action with a Tube Sock”. I know I am going to owe nanuk lots of Laprohaig for the carbon I inject into the atmosphere every time I fire up ol’ Smokey. I use lump charcoal, nearly pure carbon, and toss in hickory or mesquite chunks to boot. And I grill a lot. I have toyed with the idea of switching to propane, but I really love the way the grill cooks and the taste the smoke imparts. On the other hand the air in Phoenix is the worst and with everyone driving and building and burning wood it isn’t going to get any better. Americans have a penchant for locating cities in the worst places. A huge city such as Phoenix and environs in the middle of a desert and down in a bowl to boot is not the optimal placement for any city.

I have a slow dial-up internet connection and ordered a new broadband modem/thingy (obviously I'm technologically disadvantaged!) the other day - it arrived and is sitting in the box ready to be plugged in/installed and whatever, nd once I've done it, I shall take a look at those Arty sites!

Did you take that photo of the full moon????? Another cool shot...I am fascinated by the full moon....am perhaps going to blog about it...

As for ruining the atmosphere.....shoulder shrug...but at least you're thinking....

I hope I remember about the eclipse tonight when I get home from work.

It's just past 7:30 in the morning, I'm still curled up in bed, and yet I feel like I can tell people I strolled a museum today.

KB: Yes, I guess I should have mentioned that little detail. It has been a long time since I have heard what I like to call the “music of the stars” as the dialup seeks to connect with the net. Get everything hooked up and enjoy!!

LL: I just hope it doesn’t cloud up!!

Stacey: That is the big advantage - if you fall asleep in a real gallery a guard would throw you out.

/t.: A little nonsense now and then is relished by the wisest men… Heard that in the original Willy Wonka movie. I burned a cow once, well part of a cow – on the grill. I try to be more careful.

Yep, I may have to eclipse his light with my trusty Red Ryder Lever Action Carbine with the compass in the stock.
