No negatives! My stepdaughter and her guy and my grandson came over yesterday.

My grandson isn't old enough to vote yet........... and is smarter than all of us old folks put together.

However, BOTH my daughter and her guy are registered and will be at the polls.

Sometimes being "political" helps make a difference.

I won't be on for quite a while, but will never forget any of you.~

Thank you for the wondeful times.

I can't afford insurance under ACA already, because of our "governor".

Now there's this?


State announces hefty individual insurance rate increases for 2015.

Since that one didn't work, maybe this one will: http://www.sitnews.us/0914News/090614/090614_health_insurance.html

Just checking in from Fairbanks - had a mild shaker a bit ago.

Guesstimates are 5.3 to 5.6 - I'd like to know all my Fairbanks area buddies are ok! We are, the cats are angry (of course) and the neighbor's almost-there shed just fell down........... sigh..... Pretty sure it was local, short and sharp with a lot of pre-and-post ringing.

Let us know if you're in trouble because of the quake; we'll try to help!

Mark David Chapman will remain in prison.


I don't know where else to post this, but it is so apt to us all, still.

Barry Maguire, 1967.

Disclaimer, I did not take this or photoshop this photo. It's just fun.

Welcome to Interior Alaska.


Sorry. MMM... I still think the war machine/war pigs are basically out for one goal - and, yeah it's the almighty buck.

Fur Rondy!!

Hi Anchorage - enjoy since I can't be there!!

It's been a horrible week. But the Northern Lights are out here, BIG TIME.


The above is Susan Stevenson's work Susan Stevenson Photography). Go there for the stuff we're seeing NOW, tonight! Here's a get-started for DU'ers:

A friend of mine is awesome photographing these wonders. What's even better is seeing them, hearing them, and yes, feeling them.

After a very fraught combat shopping experience at the grocery store, we were on our way home and decided to decompress by taking the long way. That got us away from the "downtown" lights. These babies, above, were visible from suburban (?) areas, and when we got to our long, dark road............. wow. We stopped; to hell with the groceries.

He's been here since 1952, me only since 1968. The lights? Forever, and they evoke the same reaction every single time.

Susan (the photographer) sells her stuff, too - and she's the best I've encountered for this type of photography.
