What can I say? This guy nails it … at least the over-the-air TV we get. Maybe cable’s better, but somehow, I doubt it.
To quote my cycling buddy Peter, “the lake never disappoints”. It offers different views every day, all year ’round. Light and colour are ever-changing, sometimes subtly, sometimes dramatically. Today’s brief return to mild temperatures made for a perfect boardwalk opportunity. Rich, full sounds of waves against the beach accompanied the view. Perfect.
The Brits do this kind of stuff so well …

I’ve just been enjoying novelist Amelia E. Barr’s 9 rules for success and one thought appealed particularly.
… genius is nothing more nor less than doing well what anyone can do badly.
Here’s the context:
“Everything good needs time. Don’t do work in a hurry. Go into details; it pays in every way. Time means power for your work. Mediocrity is always in a rush; but whatever is worth doing at all is worth doing with consideration. For genius is nothing more nor less than doing well what anyone can do badly.”
The acronym tl;dr (Too long; Didn’t read) is familiar enough but it made me smile when I saw it applied to The Bible. A cheeky critic has made an editing attempt. For example:
God: All right, you two, don’t do the one thing. Other than that, have fun.
Adam & Eve: Okay.
Satan: You should do the thing.
Adam & Eve: Okay.
God: What happened!?
Adam & Eve: We did the thing.
I want to keep this handy, to come back to it later.
Brian found this and sent it to his list, Peter picked it up and sent it to his. I got it twice that way and felt I should keep the ball rolling.
Want more? Youtube’s got more Jacob Tolliver, so I’ll add one of 17-year-old Tolliver wowing the high school honeys.

A friend sent one of those email collections of curious images and this was one of them. I thought it was surprising, but then I also wondered, “Who makes a 9 like that?” When I looked a little more, I saw that the figures could easily be manipulated to change the number of angles, making for less amazing results.
So now the question is, “Who has time to waste, counting the angles in geometricized numerals, in the first place?” And who has time to undo their work? Same type that does this to another photo from the collection …
… but recommended for anyone who wants to spend 20 wonderful minutes enjoying Michael Pollan’s talk on cooking. It’s eye-opening, engaging and applies to everyone alive.
