Day 37: Danger and Baking

I collect icons of danger. Maybe I’ll start posting them here.

Here’s one I saw today:

…so I’m allowed (maybe required) to shoot lightning from my fingertips, but am not supposed to explode televisions in other vehicles. So many rules.

This morning, my muse expressed her love by making fresh scones.


In the evening, we went to Alex, Ashley and Scott’s place for dinner and some helicopter-related electronics work. The wine is a special treat with a hand-made label.


In case you missed it, water has been found on Mars. Cool, that’s one less thing we’ll need to bring with us.

Random assertion: Regarding icons of danger: that little guy from the men’s room sign goes through unspeakable hardships to keep us safe, and it still doesn’t always work.

Day 16: Pelicans and Snakes

Right under the Golden Gate Bridge is Fort Point, a defense station which dates back to the Civil War. On a day like today, it seems like a great place to be stationed.

Pelicans have a cool prehistoric look.

We were very careful not to be eaten by this vehicle.

After playing by the bay with Ashley and Alex (our heavy-machinery expert), my muse and I went for a walk on the 3.5-mile trail around a radiotelescope in Palo Alto known as the Stanford Dish.

This snake is about 6 feet long, lazy and happy. There’s plenty to eat here.

You can find some fantastic photos taken in this area by Robert Siegel here.

Something I forgot to mention about golf… If you want to really enjoy learning, it helps to find a good-looking instructor.

Yes it does.

Random assertion: When it comes to bold, efficient, enduring design, it’s hard to beat sharks, spiders and snakes.
