ANGELS IN AMERICA parts one and two

I first tried reading this play by Tony Kushner several years ago and didn't make it past the first scene. The central character of the scene was the lawyer Roy Cohn, one of the most despicable men on Earth in his time. He was real, Joseph McCarthy's right hand in the 50s whose claim to fame, by the character's words, was getting Ethel Rosenberg executed. Every word from the character's mouth is so mean, so evil and nasty, I set the play down and never came back to it until this past weekend.... Sign in to see full entry.

Another morning, another photo shoot...

There were not a lot of grand or glorious clouds this morning to light up the early sunlight, but there were other bits of loveliness to make getting up before the sun worth it! Sign in to see full entry.

Back-up Plans

It is uncertain what will change in internet usage if net neutrality is lost. The simplest thing is that we will all have to pay more for how we use it here. This makes me very aware of how much of my social contact is here, online, and how much I'd lose without computer or internet access. Also, I have long held that the power of the consumer is to refuse to consume, hence, my back-up plan: If you would like to stay in touch, whatever becomes of the internet, please pm me your address and/or...

This morning's colorful arrival Sign in to see full entry.

slow-starting morning

It is another chilly, breezy morning graced with a lovely fiery sky--there will be photos once my other laptop sees fit to finish updating. When I went to bed last night, it was set to do updates then turn off, but apparently it also went to bed, so when turned on this morning, it gives me a blue screen and says working on updates 1%... An hour later, it is up to 24%. That is why I am using the little Macbook now, but I can't shift photos from camera to computer with this one. I am sure there is... Sign in to see full entry.

...and here they are: Dinosaurs!

Start with this fellow who looked a bit worried, and click to the left... I didn't get names for all the exhibited saurians, but Charlie probably knows some of them if anyone wants to know. Sign in to see full entry.

Almost forgot to go...

Charlie and I got tickets last week for an event today. Life being what it is, we kinda forget the date was coming right up, and considered how we might spend this Sunday. Late Saturday, we each remembered...! How awful it would have been to have not gone because we just spaced it out! But we did remember, and we made the drive from the Springs to Denver, arriving around 11:30. We were not prepared for the $10 parking charge which had not been mentioned in the promotional material, so I asked... Sign in to see full entry.

Winds of change

It is warmer today, with high gusty winds such as this area is known for. Weather patterns come and go with the belligerent airs! Adnohr would have been wistful the past two days as we could see from here, some snow in the air over the foothills, but not but a flake fell here east of the freeway. But it will come, I have no doubt. Embers is doing better at the food dish this morning. She was a pest, walking all over me last night. At least she had a back-nails trim yesterday at the vet, so she... Sign in to see full entry.

Back from the vet...

and Our Embers is scheduled for surgery Jan 10 to have the troublesome teeth removed. The steroid shot she got today will tide her over until then. And today, she got a rear-nails trim for which her many human friends and perches will be grateful. Good news, anyway, that the vet has a 10% off sale in January. That could save me ~$100. Charlie is still looking for another housemate. He had an interview lined up with young woman, a student, but her parents freaked out over the notion of her moving... Sign in to see full entry.

Music and memories in the morning

Usually, my Echo dot device plays 'ambient sounds for sleep' which is to say, nature's gentle noises: crickets, softly flowing water, distant storm or waves, birds... It loops along forever because... well, I like those sounds! But this morning I ordered up something else: I said, "Alexa, play James Galway." If you don't know the name, he is the Irishman who plays upon a gold flute, everything from classical to pop classics, jazz, and stuff I don't know how to name. Today it started with the...
