Re: It's not the size of the screen...

Half way through the one and only season of HBO's star studded Luck , created by Deadwood' s David Milch. Odd that it didn't get a second season given the love for it. The criticism I find online centers mostly on what a slow burn it is, so does much of the praise. Oddly no one mentions the thing t...

Re: Roolz of the Rode

Most of us are familiar with the story of Mats Järlström, the engineer in Oregon who had the long fight with bureaucrats over calling himself an engineer brought on by a traffic ticket. It seems all his work on yellow light timing may have further implications: Traffic lights worldwide set to chang...

She's a "performance artist", something that probably surprises nobody.

The year is 2192. The British Prime Minister visits Brussels to ask for an extension of the Brexit deadline. No one remembers where this tradition originated, but every year it attracts many tourists from all over the world.

Recently, I've developed a mild interest in bird watching.

Re: I just don't get it

Our sister high school in Grand Rapids MI had a stand alone library. It was a round building with a concave roof.
Let that sink in.
