Mona Lisa - An X-Ray

Because of the lead in Leonardo's paint, the X-ray of the Mona Lisa looks like this picture below. From a distance it almost looks like an older lady to me or a man. Regardless, it is interesting to see how da Vinci came to the version we see today. Are we looking at the Mona Leo? Was it da Vinci... Sign in to see full entry.

Who IS That? - Mysteries in Black and White

Help! Can you identify this person? I know who it is, at least I thought I did, and you will too, when I tell you. Or will you... I love a good mystery, and I'm game to listen to any conspiracy theories that are - well, interesting. Back off a distance, a real good distance, when you look at this,... Sign in to see full entry.

"We don’t think he had mental illness."

Like that's NORMAL... Snap! The title of this post is a quote I heard this morning by an unnamed university adolescent psychiatrist referencing the latest mass school shooting.

And So It Goes...

As many of you have heard, the electricity and AT&T services such as phone and internet, have been cut for many people here in California due to fires, if that makes any sense.

Lighting a Fire at Home

Okay, I think most of you know that there are heavy winds and severe fires burning all over California. We are in an area usually semi-protected from the heaviest of winds, but today even here it is very, very windy. There are two canyons a block away; one in front of us and one behind us. I believe...
