Picture of the Day - Lava Lamp and Rocki

Today I pulled my old giant lava lamp (last fired it up in 2009) out of storage. By the grace of God I found a light bulb (100W R-20) which I still had which used to be in it). After much cleaning up the base and bottle, I fired it up. Tonight I captured this scene as my feline friend and I enjoyed the new ambiance in our living space.

Moon-rise Over Spring Fire

From the first day of the Spring Fire (yesterday) in Costilla County, Colorado, it has been an exceptionally photogenic and dramatic-looking fire. Tonight was no exception as this freeze-frame from live-streaming Viaero webcam convincingly demonstrates. Image courtesy of Viaero Wireless.

Seventy-Four Years Ago Right Now

This was happening tonight here, but early tomorrow morning there:


For my foreign readers who are not familiar with this event, this was the Western Allied amphibious assault (a.k.a. Operation Neptune) on German forces in Normandy, France, as the tip of the spear of a broader invasion of Nazi-controlled Western Europe known as Operation Overlord in June, 1944, per the agreement at the Tehran Conference a year earlier.
I just had a profound & profund realization & revelation.... while heavily buzzed on a delightful red blend.

Picture of the Day - CAL FIRE Aerodrome

I found this Google Earth image on Twitter tonight. It shows numerous CAL FIRE aerial assets parked on the tarmac at an unidentified airfield. In this image we see six of CALFIRE's 23 Grumman S-2T 1,200 gallon airtankers and 10 of its 14 OV-10A airtactical aircraft (air attack planes).
